Bukit Batok EC Located Near to Shopping Malls at Bukit Batok
With an aim to continuously add to and enhance the lifestyle of the residents, the newly formed Southside Living Concepts has drawn a detailed five-year strategic masterplan for the Bukit Batok EC area for 2021 to 2021. Bukit Batok EC strategic plan will be implemented with the aim to continually improve the lifestyle and environment of the residents in the Bukit Batok EC k area. This includes enhancing the recreational opportunities, providing better healthcare facilities and education services in the area.
The first part of the strategic master plan deals with the development of the living and recreational facilities in Bukit Batok EC. The town council has allocated funds for the construction of a new public hospital, three-storey apartment building, a shopping centre, a bus lane on the south side of town. These developments will add to the lifestyle in Bukit Batok by improving the general living conditions of residents. There will also be developments in housing to cater for the growing needs of the people in the area.
The second part of the plan involves the creation of an executive condominium in Jurong East. This is located right next to the Bukit Batok EC Central Business District. This executive condominium will cater to the demands of residents of Bukit Batok EC with an executive condominium unit with all the modern amenities and state-of-the-art facilities. This will offer residents of Bukit Batok with an opportunity to live in a fully-developed and attractive town located right next to the sea. The sea views and various entertainment options provided by the executive condominium in Jurong East will serve as an added advantage.
The third part of the plan deals with the establishment of a business centre in Bukit Batok. The planned venue is to be located right next to a bus lane and a light rail station. This will provide easy accessibility to people who use these public transportation systems and to residents of the executive condominium in Bukit Batok who are looking forward to better living conditions. The planned facilities include a supermarket, a three-star hotel, a movie theatre, a bank, a bowling club, a health centre, a library, a fitness centre and a restaurant.
Bukit Batok EC shopping centre will also add to the activities and entertainment opportunities available in the area. A lot of tourists visit the Bukit Batok area on weekends to shop. It is important that any mall in any region in Malaysia should have a wide range of specialty stores offering local and international products. The Bukit Batok master plan aims to address this concern. It has been proposed that the shopping centre shall be located at the southern end of the road between South Road and Bukit Batok Town itself.
Bukit Batok’s master plan includes a number of shopping malls and restaurants located close to the Singapore River. Some of these malls will be part of a bigger mall owned by a Chinese-Singaporean conglomerate. There are also plans to build a world-class sky hotel in the Bukit Batok area. These hotels will be designed by renowned architectpinng Kowtee. Some of the restaurants located near the river will be part of a newly-designed venture by Simon Goh, a Singaporean chef. The aim of the plan is to make the region more attractive to visitors and investors from Singapore and overseas.
One of the most pressing issues facing the Bukit Batok EC East Development board is the impact of the Bukit Batok project on the present and future income of the people of Bukit Batang. The Jurong-Clementi Town Council recently gave its approval for the construction of the second extension of the Bukit Batok Bridge. The concerns include environmental impact and traffic congestion on the way into the town from the Bukit Batok East Extension. The five-year master plan released by the Singapore Tourism Authority (STA) last year called for an increased focus on the provision of public transport. The new development located right in the middle of the current issue is a major step towards addressing these concerns.
The Bukit Batok EC project involves the demolition of old commercial buildings in the old parts of the town and replacing them with new ones and new hotels in various styles and with different themes to cater to the preferences of different local residents. Although these developments will significantly contribute to the revenues of the region, the STA has indicated that these changes will not affect the prices of basic commodities in the local market and it will encourage more local residents to patronize local goods and services. The Bukit Batok project is expected to reduce the commute time between Central Business Districts by about 30 minutes.
