Parc Residences @ Tengah will offer 1,044 homes consisting of two-room flexi, three-, four- and five-room flats.
The first batch of flats within Tengah’s Park District, which will feature the first “car-free” town centre in Singapore, will be offered for sale in the August Build-to-Order (BTO) exercise.
The third district to be launched in Tengah, Park District’s roads are “planned to run beneath the town centre, freeing up space at the ground level for retail and recreational use”, said the Housing and Development Board (HDB) as quoted by Channel News Asia (CNA).
“Separated from roads and traffic, the heart of the town centre will be safe and friendly for residents to walk and cycle.”
The town centre will come with a sports centre, eateries, retail spaces and an MRT station on the Jurong Region Line.
Known as Parc Residences @ Tengah, it will be the first BTO housing estate to be offered for sale within Park District. The 12-block development features 1,044 homes consisting of two-room flexi, three-, four- and five-room flats.
The neighbourhood centre, which is set for completion in 2025, will feature a polyclinic, a food court, a supermarket, a childcare centre and tuition centres.
“To encourage residents to adopt a healthier lifestyle, the neighbourhood centre will feature prominent stairways which open up directly into a variety of green community spaces on each floor,” said HDB.
Much like the two earlier launched districts of Tengah, Park District will also come with many green spaces.

“Park District will be encircled by greenery and green spaces, with Central Park nearby and green ways such as the Forest Corridor and Forest Fringe,” said HDB. An existing canal at Central Park will even be “naturalised and landscaped”.
There will be a 1.5km-long Rainforest Walk weaving through the housing projects as well as spaces for community farming and gardening for residents.
“Within Park District, the farmways are about 600 metres long and 40 metres wide on average. HDB will partner (the National Parks Board) to provide some 3,000 square metres of space, equivalent to the size of 33 four-room flats, for community gardening and farming within the farmways,” it said.
“This is in addition to the community gardens within individual public housing projects.”
Green features will also be seen at the BTO project’s multi-storey car park, with its rooftop garden housing fitness corners, playgrounds and a jogging track.
HDB’s 24th and newest town, Tengah is set to provide around 42,000 new homes across five districts once fully developed.
Aside from Tengah, HDB is set to offer around 7,800 flats in Ang Mo Kio, Choa Chu Kang, Bishan, Pasir Ris, Geylang, Tampines and Woodlands in its August sales exercise.
