Singapore Turf Club closure could field 30,000 new homes
An analysis of the current master plan suggests where the potential home property could break ground, says Eugene Lim, essential executive officer at ERA Realty Network. “Looking at the present surrounding land uses as shown in the Master Plan, housing usages can be included both on eastern as well as western parts of the turf club site as a sensible expansion of existing domestic usages,” claims Lim.
Lee Sze Teck, top supervisor of research at Huttons Asia, monitors that even though the 120-ha location could be too small to be sorted as a brand-new standalone township, it will prolong the already mature Woodlands HDB town. He predicts up to 30,000 brand-new homes can be established on the land parcel.
“The revamping of Kranji as a new town will assist the recurring development of the Woodlands Regional Centre, which is allocated as the biggest financial hub in Singapore’s north location,” states Gafoor, adding this are going to reinforce the labor force to assist markets projected to sprout up on Woodlands, Senoko, Lim Chu Kang and Sungei Kadut.

The western side end of the land parcel with Turf Club Avenue could be prime for “low-rise condominiums or landed plots as “there are actually existing landed properties at the Jalan Kasau region,” adds Lim. The remainder of the area could be filled in with a mix of nature, sporting activities, F&B, retail industry, and also recreation as corresponding land uses to sustain the non commercial uses in the location.
The consultancy predicts that greater than 30,000 new homes might be developed on the location, assuming a gross plot ratio of 2.8 and also a standard unit measurements of 1,000 sq ft. Nevertheless, the true number will vary based on the final property development plans.
Lee additionally claims that a driver is needed to drive Woodlands onward as a regional centre, adding that the closure of the Singapore Turf Club, established in 1842, will give city organizers the area to reconsider how to set up Woodlands for the long term.
On June 5, the Government announced that the Singapore Racecourse site in Kranji will certainly must close by March 2027. The 120-ha site will be applied for real estate and various other developments.
