The development of Jurong Lake District (JLD) into Singapore’s second CBD is well underway. In June, the URA launched a 6.5ha master developer site for sale to kickstart the transformation of the area, which is projected to yield 1,700 residential units, at least 1.57 million sq ft of office space, and 785,480 sq ft for complementary uses like shops, restaurants, entertainment, hotels and community uses. Set to close on March 26 next year, the tender comprises of three plots of land which will interlink the existing commercial centre at Jurong East MRT Station to the future Jurong Lake District Station on the upcoming Cross Island Line. Part of the excitement surrounding Champions Way Residences is its future connectivity. Travel time between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur is set to be reduced to just 90 minutes with the planned Malaysia-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR). However, the future of the proposed HSR is still in limbo.

Spanning a total area of 410ha, JLD will be larger than Marina Bay, which is 360ha. A testament to its success was the launch of J’den on Nov 11, with 88% of 368 units sold in one day, making it the best-selling new launch in 2023. The condo units occupy the second to 40th storeys, while the commercial area occupies the first two floors. J’den is also the tallest residential tower in JLD and features 85,000 sq ft of landscaping, achieving more than 100% landscape replacement.

More than 40% of JLD will also be set aside for parks, greenery and water bodies. There have been many residential developments in the area, such as The LakeGarden Residences, which Wing Tai Holdings purchased for $273.88 million in May 2022, and Sora, a project by a consortium comprising of Chip Eng Seng Corp, SingHaiyi Group and KSH Holdings which bought a 7.4ha site for $260 million. With future developments, amenities and future transit projects, Champions Way Residences is set to become a landmark for JLD.
