Potong Pasir Avenue 1 becomes prime example of sub-town phenomenon
The rise of the sub-towns is really nothing new, considering that almost everyone in SIngapore is looking for a reasonably priced place in the face of enormous hikes in private property costs. For this reason, sub-towns have become a major consideration as average home price tags in these places is normally around S$ 1,100 for places that without either a major mall or an MRT station. Prices of those located in the city fringe averages around S$ 1,350.Since Potong Pasir has no major mall and is located at the city fringe, it has become United Industrial Corporation Real Estate Developer’s pet project.
Potong Pasir vs. surrounding sub-towns
Potong Pasir might not be as developed as other sub-towns, but its location makes it a top consideration for those looking for places to stay within the rest of Central Region. Despite not being within walking distance of any major mall, being near the MRT station more than compensates this fact as you can easily travel anywhere and come back without much fuss.
Furthermore, developments in surrounding areas like Woodleigh and Bidadari is sure to have a spillover effect on its adjacent neighbor, Potong Pasir. This, in turn, would revitalize the estate and would fuel more development - though maybe not so much as residents in this area prefer their warm atmosphere and their famous kampung spirit intact after all the needed development takes place.
