Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, in his speech on 18th Aug’19, elaborated on the master plan to redevelop the Greater Southern Waterfront.
The Greater Southern Waterfront stretches 30km of Singapore’s southern coastline, from Gardens by the Bay East to Pasir Panjang. 2,000 hectares of land, 6x the size of Marina Bay and 2x the size of Punggol will be redeveloped into a new place to live, work and play. The area includes PSA city terminals at Tanjong Pagar, Keppel, Brani and Pasir Panjang. The city terminals and Pasir Panjang Terminal will be relocated to a new port to be built in Tuas by 2027 and 2040 respectively.
- The land where Keppel Club is currently on will be redeveloped to build 9,000 residential units – HDB and private housing – with waterfront promenades. More people can work near where they live, and live near where they work. This will spur life and activity day and night.
- 2 power stations in Pasir Panjang will be redeveloped to create more office space and spur employment. Established companies e.g. Unilever, Cisco and Google already have offices near Labrador Park.
- Land will be reserved to build a resort, likely on Pulau Brani once the Brani Terminal has relocated.
