    Default YESSSSS!!!!! Bidadari New Town finally announced! 12,000 more HDB units

    Hope it brings more benefits to the residents along the NE line.
    News says got park, man-made lake, and mall!
    The traffic along Upp. Serangoon Rd will be a major concern though.

    But that also means more roads! And more shops, coffee shops, eateries, supermarkets, clinics, recreation, etc.!

    New Alkaff lake for Bidadari estate

    -1 HOUR 54 MIN AGO

    SINGAPORE — The 93-hectare Bidadari estate, with 11,000 housing units, will feature a lake inspired by the former Alkaff Lake Gardens.

    The Housing and Development Board (HDB) has envisioned the estate as a “tranquil urban oasis” for residents.

    There will be six neighbourhoods — Alkaff, Bartley Heights, Sennett, Park’s Edge and Woodleigh — with the first housing parcel in Alkaff Neighbourhood to be launched by 2015.

    The new Alkaff lake will be located in a new Bidadari Park, of around 10 hectares. The park will integrate an existing Memorial Garden commemorating the heritage of Bidadari Cemetery.

    When the estate is ready, residents can access the nearby Bartley and Woodleigh MRT stations through pedestrian and cycling pathways.

    A 20-metre wide greenway, lined with rest spots, commercial and communal facilities, will also cut across the estate from Bartley Road to Upper Serangoon Road. A town centre called Market Square will feature public housing integrated with community facilities and a bus interchange.

    To bring back the rich and fond memories of Bidadari, the estate will feature a Heritage Walk showcasing stories of Bidadari’s history and contributions of prominent personalities, including Syed Shaik Abdulrahman Alkaff, a famous merchant and landowner whom the Alkaff Lake Gardens was named after.

    Built in 1929, the garden was an attraction in pre-war colonial Singapore. In its heyday, families rowed boats in the lake and dating couples frequented the surrounding man-made hills. While the garden survived the Japanese Occupation, it was bought by a realty company in 1949 and subsequently redeveloped into a school and a private residential estate.

    Bidadari is one of three new housing areas being showcased at HDB’s “Future Homes, Better Lives” Exhibition this evening (Aug 29) at the HDB Hub Atrium.

    The exhibition showcases the broad development plans for three new housing areas — Bidadari, Tampines North, and Punggol Matilda. It will be held from today to Sept 15.

    No mall, only a town centre with integrated facilities. Eventually if indeed the place is large enough for a mall it could be the salvation army site but that will be 20 years down the road.

    I expect a small mall, based on description from HDB website below:

    6 Some of the plans for Bidadari Estate include:

    a) A 10 ha Bidadari Park with a lake that will form the new green lung for the estate;
    b) Six distinctive neighbourhoods, each with unique identities through the use of varied building forms that respond to the different characteristics of Bidadari;
    c) Public spaces for community gathering and events within a garden-like setting;
    [B][COLOR="Red"]d) A mixed-use Market Square commercial cluster, together with commercial and social communal facilities pavilions to serve the needs of residents;[/COLOR][/B]
    e) A pedestrianised Upper Aljunied Road transformed into a Heritage Walk with mature trees and which captures fond memories of Bidadari’s heritage;
    f) A seamless pedestrian and cycling network to make travelling within Bidadari more pleasant and convenient.
