  • Size: 4.8 hectares (ha) out of a 10ha site
  • Zoning: Residential with a plot ratio of 4.6
  • Potential Homes: 1,800 to 2,600 units, depending on the type (private or public housing)

Historical Context

The site was once Tang Dynasty City, a theme park and film studio from 1992 to 1999, modeled after the ancient Chinese capital of Chang’an. It was demolished between 2008 and 2009.

Future Developments

The new homes will be located between Jurong Lake Gardens and the Ayer Rajah Expressway. Nearby amenities include St. Andrew’s Nursing Home and SuperBowl Jurong. Additional residential projects in the area include:

Expert Opinions

  • Justin Quek, OrangeTee & Tie: Likely private homes, estimating about 2,600 units.
  • Nicholas Mak, Potential for 1,850 to 2,000 HDB flats if used for public housing, possibly divided into smaller plots for development.
  • Mohan Sandrasegeran, Singapore Realtors: The increase in homes aligns with the ongoing transformation of the Jurong Lake District, balancing the social mix.


This development will likely attract couples and families from nearby HDB estates looking to upgrade, as well as those seeking proximity to the expanding employment opportunities in the area. The new housing site will also serve as a commercial center for this part of the district.


URA’s plan to develop this site supports the growing housing demand in Singapore and ensures residents can enjoy the benefits of living near greenery and essential amenities.
