SINGAPORE — Punggol Northshore, one of the seven new waterfront housing districts in Punggol, will be the first public housing district to be directly connected to a Light Rail Transit station, through which residents can have sheltered access to the waterfront.

It will also be the first district to test-bed smart technologies in public housing, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) said today (Sept 9) as it unveiled plans for three housing projects. The district will feature an intelligent parking demand monitoring system, that will automatically increase the number of lots for visitors during non-peak hours. Lights in common areas will be equipped with sensors, and the district’s waste conveyance system will be fitted with sensors to monitor waste disposal patterns.

Smart waste management will feature in the other two housing projects in Bidadari and Tampines North. Tampines North will have what HDB called a comprehensive network of green spaces, including “community living rooms” located on the ground level of each block adorned with lush greenery and landscaping.

Bidadari’s six neighbourhoods will have two malls and a sheltered walkway along Upper Serangoon Road running along the housing development, providing space for recreational and community events.
