A 1.23 hectare plot of land at the junction of Syed Alwi Road and King George’s Avenue will be developed for public housing, the government said today.
The land is zoned for residential use in the Master Plan 2014, and comprises mainly vacant State land and a private industrial property at No. 16 King George’s Avenue. To facilitate the public housing development, the Government will be acquiring the private property under the Land Acquisition Act.
The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has gazetted the land affected by the acquisition today. SLA and HDB are in touch with the affected landowner to assist with any queries and concerns, according to statement.
The map shows Kim Hup Lee Building and Kitchener Green playground are currently occupying the site, which is near the Jalan Besar Community Club and existing HDB estates along French Road.
More information on the future public housing development will be provided when the plans are ready.
