Alexandra is a subzone region located in the town of Bukit Merah, Singapore. The region comprises two non contiguous neighbourhoods: Alexendra Hill and Alexendra North. It is located along the road which the place had its name derived from, at the eastern border of the Queenstown district. Alexandra North, which refers to the precinct near Redhill MRT Station, consists mainly of condominiums together with a park. There is also a shopping centre in the district which recently opened its doors in 2016, Alexandra Central, beside the IKEA building. There is also the historical Alexandra Hospital, located near the region.
Harbourfront – Sea View Facing Properties
HarbourFront is a subzone situated in southern Singapore, located within the town of Bukit Merah. Main thoroughfares in HarbourFront include Keppel Way and Telok Blangah Road. Notable buildings in the vicinity include HarbourFront Centre, Singapore Cruise Centre, St James Power Station and VivoCity. Maritime Square is currently being redeveloped into a new business and lifestyle hub. Massive redevelopment in the area after the closure of the shipyard subsequently led to the name HarbourFront being coined in the early 2000s to refer to the immediate vicinity of the World Trade Centre, which was in the midst of a major refurbishment project. Relaunched as HarbourFront Centre, the former World Trade Centre also has its neighbouring Exhibition Complex demolished to make way for VivoCity, the upgrading of the Cable Car Towers and the construction of two new office blocks adjacent to it. Transportation into the area was vastly improved with the opening of the HarbourFront MRT Station and extension of the HarbourFront Bus Interchange. Also, the new monorail link to Sentosa, the Sentosa Express has been completed and opened on 15 Jan 2007. The HarbourFront station of the Circle Line had opened on 8 October 2011.
A new six-storey office building is also in the works as a new addition to the HarbourFront Office Park. The new site is known as the HarbourFront Merrill Lynch, which is a six-storey building and will be entirely occupied by American bank Merrill Lynch with a total area of 200,000 sq ft (19,000 m2). Another office development is being planned on the site of the current SPI Building. Furthermore, a residential development is possible in the future. The Singapore Cruise Centre would be expanded to accommodate over 6 million passengers by 2010.
Jurong Lake District
Jurong Lake District is a district of Singapore, planned as part of Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA)’s decentralisation efforts to bring more quality jobs, amenities, and recreational options closer to homes. The plans for the district have continued to evolve since the blueprint was first unveiled in the URA Master Plan 2008. It consists of three precincts, namely Jurong Gateway, Lakeside and Lakeside Gateway. It is 472 hectares (4,720,000 m2) in size and served by two major expressways and three MRT stations. It will be the Singapore's next central business district. Lakeside will spread over 290 hectares (2,900,000 m2), residents and visitors can look forward to new parks, improved promenades, more water activities and numerous attractions blended in with the scenic lakeside setting.
Nestled among Lakeside, Boon Lay and Pioneer train station, Jurong West has been labeled as an area of growth in the near future. Besides existing industrial estates, residents can find employment opportunities at the upcoming Wenya Industrial Estate where Google’s first data center in Southeast Asia will be housed. With the completion of Lakefront Residences, Lakeville condominium and new housing at Taman Jurong and Hong Kah on top of the existing Parc Vista, The Centris and The Lakeshore apartments, more residents can benefit from shorter commutes to employment opportunities within the vicinity. Educational facilities in the neighborhood include Xingnan Primary School, Frontier Primary School, Rulang Primary School, Juying Secondary School, Jurong Junior College and the Canadian International School. Jurong West is also well equipped with many amenities including Jurong West Stadium, Jurong West Sports Hall and Jurong Lake Park.
