Following the government’s announcement in 2008 that Paya Lebar Central will become one of several commercial hubs outside of Singapore’s CBD, Australian developer Lendlease said in 2016 that it has committed to build a S$3.2 billion integrated development adjacent to the area’s MRT station.
Dubbed as Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), the project’s retail and commercial components are expected to be completed this year, while its residential component Park Place Residences at PLQ is anticipated to be ready by 1H 2019.
