Lendlease Latest Development
Paya Lebar Quarter
As part of the government’s decentralisation policy, Paya Lebar Central has been earmarked by the URA for development as a future commercial centre. At only 12 minutes from the CBD (Raffles Place) and 23 minutes from the Airport via MRT, this city fringe location enjoys excellent connectivity via direct access to both the East-West and Circle lines.
URA envisages a bustling commercial centre with attractive public spaces in the form of a landscape plaza running through the development (covering the existing canal). The 12 ha land will comprise over 500,000 sqm of commercial floor space – a staggering scale which makes Paya Lebar Central the most significant and dominant parcel in the area. The recent completions of Paya Lebar Square, OneKM and the Workforce Development Agency’s Lifelong Learning Institute are just the beginning of Paya Lebar Central’s transformation.
The rejuvenated area will enhance its rich Malay heritage with the Geylang Serai Market and the future Wisma Geylang Serai, as well as a ‘bazaar’ zone running along Geylang Road to facilitate annual festivities. The site is also located along a major park connector and cycling route along Geylang River, providing a secure route for cyclists to the new Stadium and the CBD.
Lendlease intends to leverage its global urban regeneration expertise to develop Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) as the catalyst for precinct transformation. Paya Lebar Central will ultimately be the leading city fringe commercial district in Singapore, anchored by PLQ at its heart, with grade A office, significant public realm and a community enhanced by a quality, mid to mid plus retail mall and exclusive residential towers.
This represents an opportunity for Lendlease to demonstrate its place making capabilities and redefine the way commercial spaces are designed and experienced in Singapore. The physical characteristics of the site such as the canal, Sims Avenue and technical conditions of tender (TCOT) contribute to the complexity of the PLQ project. This places limitations on the design outcome while also providing Lendlease with the platform to showcase its integrated business model as an investor, developer, construction company and operator who is able to take on major projects of national significance.
A successful development will establish Lendlease in Singapore as a major developer of commercial and retail space. It also represents its first foray into the Singapore residential market – a significant milestone in a broader strategy to increase our residential footprint outside Australia. Finally, PLQ is Lendlease’s commitment to the community to create the best places.
