Part of URA’s Master Plan, one for the highlights features the Greater Southern Waterfront. This stretch which extends from Pasir Panjang to Marina East, will be transformed into a new major gateway and location for urban living along Singapore’s southern coast.
Development will take place in phases, starting with the former Pasir Panjang Power District, Keppel Club and Mount Faber in the next 5 to 10 years.
Power-Up Pasir Panjang
Ideas Competition for the Pasir Panjang Power District
Built in the 1950s and 60s, the two former power station buildings, along with the surrounding disused industrial structures, form the core of the Pasir Panjang Power District. With its waterfront setting and rich industrial heritage, the district can be transformed into an extraordinary destination for all to enjoy. “Power-Up Pasir Panjang”, a call for public ideas to envision future possibilities for this unique site. Useful ideas and concepts will be distilled into design principles and the brief for the subsequent use of the power district. An exhibition showcasing the creative submissions will be held at a later date. Stay tuned for more details.
Linking Green & Blue
A continuous waterfront promenade will seamlessly connect various places of interest along the Greater Southern Waterfront in future. Along this corridor, the new Pasir Panjang Linear Park will connect West Coast Park to Labrador Nature Reserve, and offer park users a glimpse of Pasir Panjang’s working container port and Power District up close. Other future connections will also link up places of interest along the waterfront to the hilltops for visitors to enjoy a distinctive recreational experience.
