Yishun enjoys the opportunities of two new exciting regional centers, Woodlands Regional Centre and Seletar Regional Centre. Both are located within the North Coast Innovation Corridor, which has been slated to become an innovative, economic corridor buzzing with ideas, creative design and new technologies.
Woodlands has been set to become a premier waterfront destination while Seletar Regional Centre has the potential to grow to two times that of Tampines Regional Centre. Located next to it is the impressive Seletar Aerospace Park, the region’s aviation hub with its wealth of endless opportunities in training, research and development. Stretching further is the Punggol Creative Cluster, a hotbed of ideas and new technologies.
The rejuvenation of the Yishun town centre can be easily summed with one integrated development – Northpoint City. Comprising an integrated transport hub that incorporates an air-conditioned bus interchange, a direct shopping underpass to Yishun MRT station, a retail city with 500 shops and the first community club based in a retail mall, a town plaza, a town garden and a residential development, integration is at best a lackluster word, as we can basically enjoy every modern convenience one can think of, all under one roof.
It will also be faster and easier travelling downtown or to other regions of Singapore with the new Springleaf MRT station along the upcoming Thomson East Coast Line and the building of new roads, from future Yishun Avenue 8 to improved Yishun Avenue 1, which connects to Seletar West Link as an alternative route to CTE, TPE and SLE. At the same time, the junction of Lentor Avenue and Yishun Avenue 1 will be improved to enable smoother traffic flow.
