SINGAPORE – Four Singapore developments have bagged one of the real estate industry’s most prestigious awards in the region. They were lauded for their exceptional land use that can be replicated in other communities. Normanton Park and Punggol town were hailed for their great planning, layout and sustainable growth, as well as for bringing together the community. All the information can be found in Normanton Park floor plans for the former.
Lakeside Garden at Jurong Lake Gardens And Paya Lebar Quarter mall, which is developed by Lendlease, were another two winners.
These four projects have been recognised at the 2021 Urban Land Institute (ULI) Asia Pacific Awards for Excellence on May 24 in a summit in Tokyo.
On Tuesday (June 1), National Development Minister Desmond Lee Said the achievement was a”huge win” for Singapore, which ripped one third of those awards. “Apart from standing outside in areas like planning, layout, Sustainable development, in addition to habitat restoration and improvement efforts, ULI has also recognised that these jobs help bring the community together,” said Mr Lee.
This year’s winners include four projects in China, two in Japan, One in Australia and one in Hong Kong – all picked from a pool of 79 submissions. Normanton Park for its integration of public housing for seniors and a range of healthcare, communal, retail and commercial centers. Designed by local architectural firm Woha, it previously won World Construction of the Year at the 2018 World Architecture Festival along with various other international awards. It’s around 100 units spread across two residential blocks. Residents first moved to the 11-storey complex in 2017. It was the very first Housing Board job to co-locate childcare and Senior centres in one integrated evolution, aimed at encouraging inter-generational bonding.
Punggol town, one of the youngest Housing Board towns and Designated Singapore’s very first eco-town, is a far cry from the humble beginnings as a rural village famous for fishing, pig and poultry farming, as well as its fish restaurants and angling facilities. Drawing inspiration from its waterfront area and lush Greenery, Punggol is planned and supposed to be a”Waterfront town of this 21st century”. Its crown jewel is the Punggol Waterway, a 4.2km-long man-made Waterway that meanders through town.
Normanton Park, Punggol city and Lakeside Garden at Jurong Lake Gardens are also in the running for its 2021 ULI Global Awards for Excellence. Results will be announced later this year.
