Macpherson, Potong Pasir (District 13)

The streets of Macpherson and Potong Pasir have come to define District 13 as a quiet environment for one to live in. However the district has been developed into a thriving housing estate over the years, with Macpherson’s industrial area at Circuit Road that makes it convenient for the residents of the district to travel to and fro. Upcoming residential and commercial developments can also make potential property buyers anticipate further enhancement to the district.

Considering the rapid changes and development that District 13 has undergone over the years, it is surprising as we consider its historical backdrop: that Macpherson and Potong Pasir had been plagued by poverty and destitution. From 1910 to 1937, Potong Pasir was filled with sand-quarries, hence resulting in the name Potong Pasir that means “cut sand” literally in Malay. Later in the 1950s Potong Pasir became one of the locals’ essential vegetable plantation areas that utilized traditional forms of planting. Farmers then were poor and lived in old rickety attap houses because vegetable farming could not reap huge profits.

District 13 is now served by the North East Line (NEL) and Circle Line, making it accessible to other parts of the island and key areas of the city. In addition, a range of future developments are already underway for the district, including The Venue Residences and Sennett Residence. The first and foremost ‘The Venue Residences’ is a mixed development located at Tai Thong Crescent which allows residents to enjoy connectivity to the rest of Singapore via major expressways and public transport. Sennett Residence is also a key residential property that would capture the attention of families for many schools are located in its vicinity, including St. Andrew’s School, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School and Cedar Primary School.
