Why Choose The Verandah Residences
The Making Of Greater Southern Waterfront City From 2027
Greater Southern Waterfront
With about 1,000 hectares of land – an area three times the size of Marina Bay – up for development in the Greater Southern Waterfront after 2030, the landscape we can paint is limited only by our imagination. As we stand at the threshold of a new chapter in our city’s development, we would like to share six broad ideas for the Greater Southern Waterfront with you. The possibilities are immense and we would like to hear your ideas for our waterfront of the future. The Greater Southern Waterfront represents an opportunity to create a new waterfront city that is integrated with both our downtown and the surrounding housing and businesses near the city. The Greater Southern Waterfront could be built up for new housing, commercial, cultural and entertainment uses, cementing Singapore’s growing reputation as a world-class city for its people to live, work and play. And what better ways to own a freehold property while waiting for the transformation to take place and allow the tide to bring you in with a huge potential of windfall?
