While a lot of places in Singapore keep incorporating modern looks, the Sembawang area is one place that has managed to put the brakes on this development, for now.
Located in Singapore’s northern region, Sembawang is where you can get best meals in the native form.
According to popular belief, the name Sembawang comes from the name given to the Mesua ferruginea tree by the inhabitants.
Relics of Sembawang’s past can be seen around the area. It also houses a natural beach which is important to Singapore as the only natural beach left.
Sembawang offers its residents a fresh burst of calmness and a quick escape from the harsh environments of major cities.
It is easy to get your local food, and it also provides a natural hot spring, one of the two in Singapore.
The future of this seafront area
This area has tried its best to retain its look from the old days, but change is going to be inevitable. With a lot of home owners looking to invest in the area, there will be lots of addition to the area.
There are also plans in motion for the Canberra MRT station and an integrated sports and community hub due to be opened in 2019.
Sembawang – Residential
The Watercove is a development project which is aimed at the residential aspects of the area. Located at the Wak Hassan Drive, it features 4 semi-detached houses and 76 terrace units. This 80 freehold strata development project has made quite an impression on investors as it already has 18 units sold.
The Kandis Residence is another development project on Jalan Kandis. Its location is very close to Sembawang Shopping Centre, Sun Plaza, Canberra Primary School, and Sembawang Secondary School. The Kandis Residence can be accessed through the Sembawang Road and also via the Seletar Expressway.
There are also plans in motion for the Woodlands Regional Centre and North Coast Wafer Fabrication Park.
