Less than 10 minutes’ drive from Potong Pasir is Bidadari, a town in the making. Bidadari comprises about 1,000 units built across a 93-ha site. Envisioned as a garden community, there are six distinctive neighbourhoods interwoven with communal parks and other public spaces.
CEO, Ong Choon Fah, observed that most people do not delineate the Potong Pasir boundary when it comes to mentally separating Potong Pasir and its surrounding area. For instance, unlike other estates, Bidadari is adopting a totally different concept helmed by award-winning designer, Siew Man Kok of MKPL, and has generated excitement as “the next Bishan”. Choon Fah also added that the neighbourhood will be very vibrant once residents begin shifting in and will have a positive influence on the nearby Potong Pasir.
People generally like the Potong Pasir heartland because it is close to town, in a fairly accessible location, with established amenities, schools and a lived-in population that is easy to ease into. The Tre Ver is another example that has performed relatively well as it has been thoughtfully designed to align its features with its target audience: a “younger set of people who are in favour of a more active lifestyle amid landscaped greenery”.
