Five new SERS projects to be built in Dawson estate

HDB will build five new public housing projects in Dawson Estate under SERS or the Selective En bloc Redevelopment Scheme. 

These flats will provide new homes for Tanglin Halt residents, many of whom have been living there for more than 50 years. 

In a blog post, National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan says Dawson estate in Queenstown is fast becoming the next iconic housing estate. 

Two Build-To-Order (BTO) projects, SkyVille@Dawson and SkyTerrace@Dawson, featuring concepts like sky gardens and landscape terraces, will be completed next year. 

He says amidst the green surroundings, there will be many community spaces for residents to mingle and interact, such as playgrounds and fitness corners for residents of all ages to come together. 

Mr Khaw says residents will also enjoy greater convenience, with their new homes located near shopping amenities and an MRT station. 

HDB will also be building a new hawker centre. 

Mr Khaw says tejuvenation is not only about creating new hardware. 

Shared memories will pull people closer together. 

There'll be a a heritage wall and space to showcase items contributed by members of the public within the former Commonwealth Avenue Wet Market.
