In the East Coast, the suggested concept of a “Long Island” combines coastal conservation techniques with planned future land reclamation.
This could potentially entail the creation of a new reservoir to enhance Singapore’s food and water sustainability, a crucial component in securing the city-state’s future amid the challenges posed by climate change.
The “Long Island” presents an opportunity to not only offer new housing options but also integrate coastal parks and recreational spaces. Initially proposed in the 1991 Concept Plan as a reclaimed island for waterfront residences and leisure activities.
Continuing along the East Coast Parkway is the Bayshore area, where cleared land is set to make way for a new Bayshore precinct. The precinct is anticipated to consist of 12,500 homes, divided equally between public and private housing.
It will encompass around 6,000 HDB flats and 6,500 private residential units.
