Greater Southern Waterfront
Gateway to Future Live, Work & Play
The Greater Southern Waterfront, which extends from Pasir Panjang to Marina East, will be transformed into a new major gateway and location for urban living along Singapore’s southern coast.
Development will take place in phases, starting with the former Pasir Panjang Power District, Keppel Club and Mount Faber in the next 5 to 10 years.
Power-Up Pasir Panjang
Ideas Competition for the Pasir Panjang Power District
Built in the 1950s and 60s, the two former power station buildings, along with the surrounding disused industrial structures, form the core of the Pasir Panjang Power District. With its waterfront setting and rich industrial heritage, the district can be transformed into an extraordinary destination for all to enjoy. “Power-Up Pasir Panjang”, a call for public ideas to envision future possibilities for this unique site and to celebrate its distinctive heritage, was held from 30th April 2019 – 25th June 2019. Useful ideas and concepts will be distilled into design principles and the brief for the subsequent use of the power district. An exhibition showcasing the creative submissions will be held at a later date. Stay tuned for more details.
Linking Green & Blue
A continuous waterfront promenade will seamlessly connect various places of interest along the Greater Southern Waterfront in future. Along this corridor, the new Pasir Panjang Linear Park will connect West Coast Park to Labrador Nature Reserve, and offer park users a glimpse of Pasir Panjang’s working container port and Power District up close. Other future connections will also link up places of interest along the waterfront to the hilltops for visitors to enjoy a distinctive recreational experience.
One Faber Group is studying a new funicular system at Mount Faber to bring visitors from the foothills to the hilltop and cable car station by 2023. This provides easy access to Mount Faber and the rest of the 10km-long Southern Ridges.

Integrating with Nature & Water
The Keppel Club site will be redeveloped into a new residential precinct. Future residents will enjoy convenient access to the waterfront, nature and two nearby MRT stations.
The development of the site will respond sensitively to its existing context and topography. It will also be guided by a comprehensive green and blue plan that will complement the nearby Berlayer Creek and Labrador Park. The neighbourhood will be walkable, and well connected to public transport nodes and amenities.
