The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has launched a Request for Proposal (RFP) last 11 July, which invites multi-disciplinary teams to contribute master plan proposals to develop Singapore Jurong Lake District.
The RFP indicates the starts in transforming the district into “A district of the future”, and the second central business district (CBD) of Singapore.
With this, the steering committee of the district and Singapore URA have presented a set of ideas to conduct the master planning.
For instance, the core area of Jurong Lake District close to the upcoming Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) project should provide adaptable and flexible work spaces for a good combination of complementary businesses and services.
The Jurong Lake District will also be a comprehensive and lively 24/7 hub offering entertainment, leisure and retail selection outside working hours, plus recreational facilities, inclusive communal spaces and quality new homes with upcoming Singapore Property at Lake Grande and Lakeville.
The district will also provide a car-lite lifestyle, with inclusive public transport services that is beyond the national target of 75% by year 2030.
According to Head, CBRE Research, Singapore and South East Asia Desmond Sim, the proposed strategies behind Jurong Lake District development is in line with the government’s campaign to bring jobs closer to home.
Interested multi-disciplinary teams are required to present information on their team organisation and composition, track record, and a Statement of Planning by 5 September.
