HDB to relocate another 399 units in Eunos Industrial Estate under redevelopment programme
HDB will be relocating 399 units in Eunos Industrial Estate under Batch 14 of its Industrial Redevelopment Programme (IRP).
The units affected are in Blocks 26, 27 and 30 at Eunos Road 2 and 5; and Blocks 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005, 1006, 1007, 1010, 1011, 1014, 1029, 1030, 1031, 1032, 1033, 1034, 1035, 1036, 1037, 1038, 1041, 1042 and 1057 at Eunos Avenue 3, 4, 5, 5A, 6, 7 and 8.
In a statement today, HDB said tenants who are affected by the relocation will be offered replacement units in a new high-rise industrial complex in Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park 3, which is due to be completed in mid-2018.
In addition, eligible tenants will receive ex-gratia payment and other relocation benefits.
Since 1999, three batches of IRP have been announced for the estate.
The remaining units will be relocated under subsequent IRPs.
HDB said the IRP was launched in February 1997 to recycle, redevelop and intensify existing HDB-managed industrial land, and to relocate pollutive trades.
It said to date, it has relocated some 3,000 industrial units island-wide to new high-rise industrial complexes with better facilities.
Eunos Industrial Estate housed 1,089 units when it was completed in 1981.
Under the URA Master Plan 2008, Eunos Industrial Estate is mainly zoned for non-industrial uses.
Part of the vacated land has since been redeveloped for public housing.
