There is one thing worse than an Enbloc ----- and that is an Enbloc done badly. Since the majority have the necessary mandate to sell, then they owe it to all SPs to make a success of it. Minority SPs can only watch and wait, if they sell then lets pray it's at a price we can move on with, if they don't sell, then we are happy to stay for a few more years.

Tampines the "Shenton Way of the East"

Part of the URA's 5 year Masterplan 2008:-

Tampines to be the "Shenton Way of the East"
Making of a lively, livable global city
Straits Times - 24 May 2008

"Another theme that runs clearly through the 2008 masterplan is the decentralisation of urban activity to commercial nodes outside the Central Business District.

It is a strategy that first made an appearance in the URA's 1991 concept plan, with the Tampines regional centre identified as the first decentralised commercial hub.

Today Tampines is dubbed "the Shenton Way of the East" with many banks having set up backroom operations there."
Business Times - 29 May 2008
"Over the past 10 years, Singapore has developed new areas for businesses to flourish.
Beyond development of the city centre, these 10 years have also seen the growth of other commercial hubs. The Tampines Regional Centre, Buona Vista Sub-regional Centre (now known as One-North) and the Novena Fringe Centre are three such centres outside of the city centre being developed.
Both Tampines and Novena are now bustling commercial centres, with a mix of offices, retail and entertainment facilities that cater to the needs of residents in the eastern part of Singapore.
Beyond housing, URA has also planned for the recreation and leisure needs of our population.
The Parks and Waterbodies Plan set out proposals for an islandwide network of parks and park connectors. The park connector network has been implemented in stages, with the 42 km-long Eastern Loop running through Bedok, Pasir Ris and Tampines being completed last year."
