The North Region is Singapore’s second largest region in terms of land area. The region is just 18km away from the Central Region as is home to leafy green neighbourhoods and peaceful forest trails, offering privacy and exclusivity from the city centre. Due to its proximity to Johor Bahru which takes only a short drive to reach via the Johor Singapore Causeway, this region is coveted by expatriate commuters.
There is no lack of educational institutions, including those in Woodlands and Sembawang. Woodlands has a high concentration of American expat families with their children pursuing education at the Singapore American School (SAS). There are also 17 other Singaporean schools. Most international schools run bus services to and from Woodlands daily, so commuting is not difficult. Meanwhile, the Canberra Primary School, Endeavour Primary School and Sembawang Secondary School are all in Sembawang.
In terms of housing options, Woodlands boasts an array of housing styles including HDB flats, landed houses and high-rise condominiums which feature amenities typical of expatriate areas. The abundance of retail, dining and entertainment options also contribute to the area’s flourishing population. The North region also has established industrial areas such as Sungei Kadut, which provides employment opportunities close to the residential areas.
Transportation wise, accessing to other parts of Singapore is a breeze. Woodlands is connected to the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) which is easily accessible to the CBD. In Sembawang, the area is served by the Sembawang MRT station. With the upcoming development of Bukit Canberra, a large sports and community hub which houses many lifestyle-related amenities for the community, the area can expect a flourish in population and employment opportunities. Not only that, the hub is only 5 minutes away from the station.
I have listed below, by districts, the private condominiums. I have also separated out the new launches and the older ones. The list below is not exhaustive. Although we have done a lot of work to ensure that it is correct, we are not liable for any errors contained therein.
