A 10ha site in Farrer Park will be redeveloped into a public housing estate with about 1,600 HDB flats, integrated with sports and recreational facilities including a new sports centre at the location of the Farrer Park Swimming Complex.
The site – bounded by Dorset Road, Keng Lee Road, Hampshire Road and Race Course Road – was where Singapore’s first racecourse was established in 1843. Located near Little India and Farrer Park MRT stations, it has been earmarked for residential use since 1998 under URA’s Master Plan.
“The development of the site is in line with the Government’s commitment to redevelop brownfield sites where possible”, said the governing agencies.
In addition, its proximity to the city centre will provide options for younger families looking for public housing near to their parents for better mutual care and support, with a shorter commute to workplaces in the city.
Many had shared that the sporting heritage and memories of the area make Farrer Park endearing, and hoped that the new housing developments would include the integration of sports facilities.
As such, about 20 per cent of the site will be set aside as open spaces for sports and recreational uses. This will include a 1.2ha central green space comprising a field and a park.
The upcoming housing projects will be seamlessly integrated with new and redeveloped sports and recreational facilities. This will strengthen the unique identity of Farrer Park as a social and sporting node.
Piccadilly Grand, which is just next to the future revamp, looks to benefit from this massive transformation.
