A 1.23ha plot of land at the junction of Syed Alwi Road and King George's Avenue, near Lavender MRT station, has been earmarked by the Housing and Development Board (HDB) and Singapore Land Authority (SLA) for public housing development.
It comprises mainly vacant state land and private industrial property at No. 16, King George's Avenue, which the Government will acquire under the Land Acquisition Act.
HDB and SLA said in a joint statement yesterday that the land is zoned for residential use in the Urban Redevelopment Authority's Master Plan 2014. SLA gazetted the affected land yesterday. Both agencies are in touch with the affected landowner to assist with any queries and concerns.
More information on the future public housing development will be provided when the plans are ready, the agencies said.
