T-Space At Tampines is strategically situated next to Giant, Ikea and Giant Hypermarts.
Tampines North, a off-shoot of Tampines Town, will see 21,000 residential units spanning 240 hectares joining the Tampines community. This ‘green’ offshoot is an extension of Tampines Town. This extension comprise 4 housing districts, Park East District, Park West District, Green Walk District and Boulevard District.
There will be 2 major parks, the Sun Plaza Park and the Quarry Park; and several other smaller ones spread around the estate. These parks will be interconnected via a network of pedestrian and cycling lines within the districts.
The future of Tampines will have a detailed suite of facilities ranging from housing, schools, libraries, shops, sport facilities, parks and community clubs to ensure a self-contained/sufficient town.
Jobs are brought closer to home of residents through the business parks and industrial estates within the town.
Some future facilities to look out for include the expansion of the Changi General Hospital, a mixed-use residential and commercial Tampines Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) that links direct to the MRT and bus interchange at the Tampines Town Centre after the Downtown Line is completed; and new facilities in Tampines North for the new upcoming homes and these include 2 primary and 2 secondary schools and a sparkling community centre.
In 2017, we will witness the opening of a new nine-storey medical centre at the Changi General Hospital which is built to provide one-stop service to patients.
By the end of 2016 this year, an iconic landmark known as the Tampines Town Hub will open in phases. It boasts numerous facilities within its complex. These include a 5-storey regional library, 6 swimming pools, a 20-court badminton hall, a stadium with 5,000 seats together with a FIFA-approved soccer field!
