The 3 towns fall under the Housing Board's Remaking Our Heartland (ROH) scheme to enhance and beautify existing public housing estates in the area.

These preliminary proposals was announced by Senior Minister of State for National Development Desmond Lee in Parliament last April 11.

The proposed development presents after 11 discussion meeting with 400 community stakeholders and residents last 2015.

According to proposals, Woodlands Central residents can look forward for a new town plaza with comprehensive community activities. Woodlands Waterfront will be subjected to more landscaping, pocket greens and shaded areas.

While the Pasir Ris town will have a new mixed-use development, a residential project with commercial facilities and integrated with the new bus interchange and Pasir Ris MRT station.

Over in Toa Payoh town centre which Gem Residences is located, the area will get a renovated pedestrian mall, covered shopping streets, more greenery and rest areas. 

After approval, these proposals will be performed within the next 5 to 10 years and actual implementation timeframe will differ from site to site.
