Around 150,000 new public and private homes are set to be built in the Paya Lebar Airbase once it has been relocated. This is roughly the size of Sengkang and Punggol. Building height restrictions around the area are also expected to be lifted to maximise the space.
“Each new estate will be more liveable, greener, and more sustainable than the previous one,” he stated.
