JURONG LAKE DISTRICT
Westwood is located at Westwood Avenue, nestled within the private enclave of the Westwood Estate. Easy access to shopping (Jurong Point 1 & 2, JEM, Westgate, Big Box), dining, entertainment and edutainment facilities is only an 8-15min drive from your home. Westwood Residences linked by 3 major expressways nearby, PIE, KJE & AYE provides excellent accessibility to other parts of the island. With Boon Lay MRT Station just 4 bus stops away, you have the choice of Singapore’s ef cient public transport near you.
The upcoming 20km Jurong Region Line (JRL) will connect the region to the existing rail network for faster travel to the rest of the island. It is expected to be complete by around 2025, in which the line will serve to connect residents in Boon Lay to Choa Chu Kang, West Coast and the future developments in the Tengah area.
To make things more exciting in our area, the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) terminus will be sited at Jurong East!
With cycling as a form of sustainable, healthy and inclusive transport and recreational activity, Singapore is working towards becoming a bike-friendly city. The National Cycling Plan is a government initiative to develop cycling routes for recreational and short commuting purposes, which will be integrated into a comprehensive network throughout Singapore. By 2015, 100 km of intra-town cycling paths will have been developed in several cycling towns. Another 90 km of cycling paths will be added to more towns by 2020.
Cycling is a growing lifestyle choice in Singapore and with the right facilities at your doorstep, you can warm up and cycle from home. With the Round Island Route next to Westwood Residences, you can safely cycle around Singapore every weekend and meet friends along the way!
JURONG LAKE GARDENS
Jurong Lake District1 is one of three regional centres identi ed under the Concept Plan to provide attractive locations for commercial activities outside the city centre by bringing jobs closer to where people live. It is also one of the new growth areas to be developed into a major commercial centre to support Singapore’s economic growth in the medium to long term.
Jurong Lake District is the only regional centre with a lakeside setting right at its doorstep. A diverse mix of uses has been planned for the area to meet the needs of residents, workers, visitors and businesses. There will be of ces, shops, hotels, F&B, homes, sports and recreation facilities, civic and community institutions, medical facilities, parks and community space.
OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL CHOICES
The Jurong Lake region is a unique blend of housing estates in close proximity to two large reservoirs i.e. Jurong Lake and Pandan Reservoir. These major water bodies create plenty of recreational opportunities for the residents and visitors ranging from nature walks, shing, bird watching and more exciting water-based activities such as kayaking, dragon boating, sailing and canoeing.
Over the next 10 to 15 years, the Lakeside (comprising 220 ha of land and 70 ha of water body) will be developed into a world-class leisure destination for residents and visitors. There will be new attractions, waterfront hotels, parks and promenades added around the scenic lake. It will truly be a ‘water playground’. Two new parks will be created in the vacant space near the Jurong East MRT station and Toh Guan.
