Jurong Lake District Singapore Masterplan

Rotterdam, 28 August 2017 – The Singapore Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has unveiled the masterplan for Jurong Lake District in Singapore, the city’s future second Central Business District. The JLD masterplan is exhibited till mid-September and invites the public to share their views. KCAP Architects&Planners, leading a multi-disciplinary team consisting of SAA Architects, Arup, S333 and Lekker is responsible for many of the key ideas developed in the plan.

After the appointment as consultant in early 2017, the team has elaborated the winning design true to concept. The JLD competition design defined key qualities as such that they could be strengthened throughout the integrated design process and now find their full strength.

A distinctive identity

The ambition is to develop the area into a new mixed-use business area built around the future Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail terminus, which will further anchor Jurong Lake District as Singapore’s second Central Business District. Qualities of the plan are its high-density mixed-use programme which incorporates new waterways and a series of stacked horizontal landscape datum and connections that weave through the entire district to create a distinctive identity for Singapore and its vision as a ‘City in the Garden’.

A powerful dialogue between high-density, urban sustainability and heritage

The high-density urban typology maximizes vertical urban greenery within a vertical city next to the beautiful Jurong Lake Gardens and creates a streetscape network for active mobility, walkability and interactive public spaces. The integrated, sustainable urban systems maximize the streetscape by proposing to place all major transport and engineering below the city, creating layers of optimized infrastructure and a car-lite district. Existing heritage buildings, landscapes and ecosystems are respected and repurposed in a powerful dialogue with the new development. With its strategic location, open environment and live-work-play programming, the area will become a new gateway to Singapore and can also be the new hub for the emerging science and innovation corridor in West Singapore.
