Yishun, which has more than 250,000 residents, is no longer a boring ‘Ulu’ backwater.
In fact, it is actually enjoying a revival of sorts. New amenities, a mega mall, brand new healthcare centres, new residential projects, and a regional growth area (Seletar Regional Centre) with its promise of 10,000 new jobs and ensuing expat flow, are all in the works.
Signature EC at Yishun . Shopping & Dining Options
The mega mall 2km from the Signature EC at Yishun, is North Point City, a commercial and residential project that will be integrated with the existing Northpoint Shopping Centre.
Targeted to open in 2018, it will be the biggest mall in the north, with over 500 F&B, shopping and banking outlets. It will also house a community club, and be linked to an air-conditioned bus interchange and Yishun MRT station.
So strong is the draw of this development, that it sold over 50% of its private condo units at North Park Residences sitting atop North Point, within 2 weeks of its launch in April this year, at an average of $1,350 PSF.
Junction Nine in Yishun Avenue 9, a 99-year leasehold mixed development with retail units, will also open in 2017. Residents at the Signature EC at Yishun will be spoilt for shopping choices.
Signature EC at Yishun . Other Attractions
The greenery in the area – Seletar Reservoir, Yishun Pond, and the Orchid Country Club with its golf course – are also what draws buyers looking for a more tranquil lifestyle.
Like other well-developed residential estates, Yishun has several recreational options, cycling paths and fitness & exercise corners. In addition, it has scenic waterways & serene green parks.
The Lower Seletar Reservoir was redeveloped at a cost of $10 million. It now has a multi-purpose stage, water play area, a 170m-long jetty-like bridge that extends across the waters of the reservoir, and a Rowers’ Bay for competitive rowing.
In a 2011 revamp, Yishun Pond unveiled floating wetlands, a three-storey lookout tower, and flower trails.
A new leisure park the size of 7 football fields, Orto, has opened recently, that has some of the old kampung charm of Singapore of the 1960s & 70s. Visitors can go prawning or fishing there, and it also has several eateries.
For the young, and young-at-heart, it offers more strenuous activities like paintball, futsal and trampoline.
A 15.5km cycling trail, due to complete end 2015, will connect major transport nodes, neighbourhood centres and parks.
