Pools and gym to feature in integrated Singapore development

Pools and gym to feature in integrated Singapore development
September 21, 2020

A new integrated retail and commercial development in the Singapore district of Yishun will feature multiple swimming pools, a gym and fitness studios, an upgraded hawker centre and a community club.

Construction of the multi-storey development, on a 0.9 hectare site at Yishun New Town's first neighbourhood town centre, is due to start in 2022 and is slated to be completed in 2027.

The multi-storey development, which will be tentatively named Chill @ Chong Pang, will accommodate hawkers and stallholders from the existing Chong Pang Market and Food Centre, which was built in 1984.

In a joint media statement, the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), the People's Association, the National Environment Agency and Sport Singapore advised that the development will see the district’s existing hawker centre, vacated and redeveloped into a community plaza by 2028.

Speaking at a recent virtual media conference, Singapore Home Affairs and Law Minister K. Shanmugam, said the new development will be a more efficient use of land space that can cater to the needs of residents in Yishun and the northern region.

Minister Shanmugam said that all existing hawkers at Chong Pang Market will be offered replacement stalls. Those currently receiving subsidies on rental will continue to receive subsidies at the upgraded hawker centre, while others paying the market rate will continue to do so.

A hawker centre or cooked food centre is an open-air complex and food court most commonly found in Singapore. It houses multiple stalls that sell a variety of local and other Asian cuisines.
