Tengah Town is Singapore’s first “forest town”
Located in the west of Singapore, the new eco-town of Tengah promises to be a model of sustainability and green technology. It will be a car-free zone with centralized cooling and sustainable design elements. This new community will also have automated trash collection and a car-free town center. Conservationists hope that this new development will significantly reduce carbon emissions in this city-state in Southeast Asia.
Tengah Town is a planned eco-city with five residential districts. Residents will be able to commute to the town via buses and the planned Jurong Region Line. The town will also have a 100m-wide forest corridor, which will provide safe passage for wildlife. Upon completion, Tengah will have approximately 42,000 new homes. It will also feature community farms and dedicated walking trails.
Tengah’s plan to create a car-free town centre is a landmark in Singapore’s urban development. It will be the first town in Singapore to do so. Vehicles will be parked underground and passengers will use buses and a planned Jurong Region Line to get around. This will free up space for pedestrians and bicycles to enjoy the nature-inspired amenities and greenery.

Besides, buyers will not face cooling measures. They will be able to avail of deferred payment schemes and wealth tax options.
Bukit Batok EC is one of the newly developed ECs in Singapore. Its location is perfect for commuters and residents as it is near the Bukit Batok MRT station and several amenities.

It is close to the Bukit Batok MRT station
Investors interested in purchasing residential units in Bukit Batok are likely to be attracted to the neighbourhood’s proximity to amenities such as Bukit Batok MRT station. The district is also close to popular amenities such as Jurong Lake District, Sunshine Place, and Lot One Shopping Centre. It is expected to attract strong demand for residential units in the near future.

It is also located on an eco-corridor that connects to nature reserves in the Central Catchment area. HDB has plans to restore this forest corridor through the town. This is part of its effort to create a town sensitive to the ecosystems in the region.
The city will soon see a large number of new housing developments. Several of these new developments will feature a forest-like nature park. The area will be developed in cooperation with the National Parks Board and will feature a 100m-wide nature corridor for residents to walk through. The area will also feature an electric vehicle charging hub.
