Singapore Turf Club closure could field 30,000 new homes

Prospective redevelopment plans for the sprawling location next to Kranji MRT Terminal will most likely add brand-new public and nonpublic non commercial housing, public environment-friendly spaces, commercial offerings, and also other community services to that North area of Singapore, claims PropNex.

On June 5, the Government announced that the Singapore Racecourse site in Kranji will have to shut by March 2027. The 120-ha site will be utilized for housing and various other developments. PropNex CEO Ismail Gafoor mentions the action “shows the adaptability in the state’s approach to managing land use in Singapore, where real estate is scarce, but there are numerous contending demands for spot”.

Lee Sze Teck, senior director of research study at Huttons Asia, observes that although the 120-ha site could be too modest to be sorted as a brand-new standalone township, it will prolong the currently developed Woodlands HDB neighborhood. He assesses as much as 30,000 brand-new residences can be developed on the land parcel.

The western end of the land parcel with Turf Club Avenue could be prime for “low-rise condominiums or landed plots as “there are currently presenting landed residential properties at the Jalan Kasau location,” adds Lim. The rest of the area might be filled out with a blend of nature, sporting activities, F&B, retail industry, and leisure as complementary land uses to help the non commercial uses in the area.

“The revamping of Kranji as a brand-new neighborhood will certainly uphold the recurring development of the Woodlands Regional Centre, which is allocated as the biggest financial hub in Singapore’s north area,” claims Gafoor, adding this will strengthen the labor force to sustain industries projected to sprout up on Woodlands, Senoko, Lim Chu Kang along with Sungei Kadut.

An evaluation of the current master plan proposes where the future residential property can break ground, claims Eugene Lim, key executive officer at ERA Realty Network. “Looking at the present neighboring land uses as shown in the Master Plan, non commercial usages may be integrated both on eastern and also western portions of the turf club location as a sensible expansion of present non commercial uses,” says Lim.

The consultancy approximates that more than 30,000 brand-new residences can be built on the site, thinking a gross plot ratio of 2.8 and also a normal unit dimension of 1,000 sq ft. Nevertheless, the actual number is going to vary based on the final development plans.

Lee even says that a catalyst is required to move Woodlands ahead as a regional centre, including that the closure of the Singapore Turf Club, founded in 1842, will offer urban planners the room to reconsider exactly how to position Woodlands for the future.
