Staying in the Ang Mo Kio estate of Singapore offers a number of benefits. For one, it is close to amenities and many schools, and the residents are welcoming and helpful. It has many of Singapore’s well known nature parks like the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, Lower Peirce Reservoir Park and Thomson Park. Many shopping malls service the area too, like the Ang Mo Kio Hub and Djitsun Mall. There is a new mall being built that’s connected to Lentor MRT station, and above the mall is where a new residence called Lentor Modern will be sited. Generally Ang Mo Kio is divided into 2 parts, the town centre and the Western landed enclave.
Ang Mo Kio Town Centre
The Ang Mo Kio town centre is the more densely populated area, with many HDB flats and the core activity hub where the shopping mall, HDB retail shops, bus interchange, MRT station, and Ang Mo Kio Town Garden East park are. A new MRT line, the Thomson-East Coast line, was just built between the Town Centre and Western landed enclave. This new line runs parallel to the North-South line and also reaches the Central Business District. The aim is to alleviate the congestion at the Ang Mo Kio MRT station, which serves the North-South Line, during peak hours.
Ang Mo Kio Landed Enclave
There are many advantages to owning a private home in a popular neighbourhood like Ang Mo Kio. For one, the estate is designed to have a myriad of amenities and transport routes that generally would serve the residents of an HDB estate. A new condo named AMO Residence, for example, is located near to Mayflower MRT station which serves the Thomson-East Coast Line. It is only about 5 minutes walk from this 25-storey condominium that is sandwiched between the landed homes of Shangri-la and the HDB flats. This condo even has an unblocked view of the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park and Lower Peirce Reservoir Park!
Lentor Hills is the upcoming residential project of URA to create a self-sufficient hub of private homes. Lentor Hills estate will have a MRT station that is part of the Thomson-East Coast Line, a shopping mall integrated with an upcoming condominium, and a green corridor for cyclists and nature lovers to reach the nearby parks easily. You can find more information at the Lentor Modern Showflat.
