In this 4-part series, PropNex looks at some of the HDB projects that are due to meet their 5-year minimum occupation period (MOP) in 2022. This second blog in the series looks at the West Region, where some 8,609 flats could exit the MOP this year. They comprise: 6,884 units in Bukit Batok; 1,223 units in Jurong West; and 502 units in Clementi. The MOP flats in the West account for about 27% of the 31,325 flats estimated to attain MOP in 2022.
The western region is the largest manufacturing hub in Singapore and is among the key economic centres in the country. Exciting plans are afoot with the development of the Jurong Innovation District (JID) and Jurong Lake District (JLD), as well as the upcoming Jurong Region Line. The JLD, in particular is earmarked as a vibrant commercial hub outside of the city centre and a thriving destination for business, leisure, entertainment and sustainable living.
