The first of HDB’s six new-generation neighbourhood centres is officially up and running – which is a good thing if you’re thinking of moving to Punggol.
After all, the seven-storey mall Oasis Terraces features, among other things, a supermarket which opens till 11pm and a 24-hour fitness centre.
If you’re keen on getting an apartment nearby, check out five residential options located within walking development of this new neighbourhood centre.
1. EDGEDALE GREEN
If you like the idea of being surrounded by a small, close-knit community, and you’re all about that kampung spirit, then this is a good bet.

2. PUNGGOL BREEZE
Further down the road from Edgedale Green is another small-sized development that’s a stone’s throw away from Oasis Terraces. And if you’ve got young kids, you’d be happy to know the property is within a five minute walk of not just one, but three schools: Horizon Primary School, Oasis Primary School and Punggol Secondary School. PSF sale price is S$474.50
3. WATERWAY WOODCRESS
This is a premium BTO that’s situated along the Punggol Waterway. What makes it interesting is the seven residential blocks in this development vary in height (we’re talking between eight to 18 storeys) so as to maximise the residents’ views of the waterway. There’s a mini-mart, shops and a childcare centre available within the project, too. PSF sale price is S$497.40.
4. RIVERPARK RESIDENCE EC
It’s actually nearer to Kadaloor LRT station than Oasis Terraces’ Oasis LRT Station it’s still within an eight-minute walking distance from the neighbourhood centre.
