History of Seletar

Seletar is a planning area situated in the north-east part of Singapore. The name ‘Seletar’ is believed to originate from the Malay subgroup- the Orang Seletar, the original inhabitants of Singapore. It borders planning areas like Ang Mo Kio to the south, Punggol to the east, Yishun and Simpang to the West, and with Straits of Johor to the north.

Seletar is a harming area rich in history. The area was previously occupied by rubber plantation under the Singapore United Rubber Plantation Ltd. In 1923, the British Royal Air Force was awarded 600 acres by the Straits Settlement for the establishment of a military airbase.

The Seletar Reservoir was developed in 1920 after WW1 and later became a conservation area in 1999. Several colonial bungalows were built to provide residence to the British soldiers. In 2007, the Singapore government announced plans to demolish 174 bungalows to create space for the development of Seletar Aerospace Park. Another 204 bungalows will be reserved and refurbished into aerospace training schools while others will be turned into food and beverage outlets. The remaining 132 units are reserved for residential use.

Years later, Seletar has been transformed into a serene residential area with a plethora of amenities that allow residents to meet their needs with ease. It features a plethora of amenities from cafes and restaurants to amazing shopping destinations, parks, schools and more. Seletar is undergoing a transformation to become the next regional centre in Singapore. The nearby residential areas of Yishun, Punggol, and Sengkang will facilitate the growth of Seletar by creating more job opportunities for the residents.

History of Ang Mo Kio

Ang Mo Kio or commonly known as AMK, is a residential town and a planning area in the northeast area of Singapore. It is surrounded by the planning area of Bishan, Serangoon, Sengkang, Seletar, and Yishun.

Before urbanisation, the area was scarcely populated and mainly used for agriculture. Swamps and dense secondary forests occupied the uninhabited land. In 1973, AMK was developed as one of the satellite towns.

In 1986, the first town councils in Singapore Cheng San, Ang Mo Kio West, and Ang Mo Kio South town councils were established. The goal was to offer better services to HDB residents in the new towns. This concept was adopted into law in 1988 under the Town Council Act and is the second-level administration in the country to date.

Ang Mo Kio witnessed massive commercialisation between 1970 and 1980. Consequently, the neighbourhood startup businesses developed and are still prominent throughout the town centre today. Among them is Sheng Siong that emerged into one of the biggest supermarket chains in the country.

Today, AMK is largely urbanised just like the nearby towns. Although little of its past remain, there are parks reserved as part of Singapore’s green initiative. The parks include the east and the west Ang Mo Kio Town Gardens.

Ang Mo Kio is now a flourishing residential estate serving over 200,000 residents. Being a mature estate it is, AMK is home to private residential developments, with more new housing developments like Nim Collection.

The area is well connected by MRT lines, roads and expressways and offers plenty of amenities including malls, hospitals and clinics, over 20 schools and more. It has become one of the most convenient estates in Singapore that puts residents mere minutes away from everything they need.
