History of Flora Drive . Pasir Ris
Pasir Ris is a mature estate and a planning area situated on the eastern coast of Singapore. Bordering Pasir Ris are the Serangoon Harbour, Upper Changi Road North, Tampines Expressway, and Sungei Serangoon.
The neighbourhood is divided into seven subzones spreading across 1,533 ha. Thanks to its location on the coast, apart from being a popular residential district, Pasir Ris also serves as a recreational destination.
The name Pasir Ris is of Malay origin and is believed to be derived from Pasir Iris, a Malay word that means white sand referencing its location along the white sandy beach of the northeastern coastline. The first reference to Pasir Reis village was in the early 1800s.
Early, Pasir Ris was undeveloped, featuring Chinese villages along Elias Road and Malay villages such as Kampong Loyang Besar, Kampong Bahru, and Kampong Pasir Ris.
Pasir Ris was popular for the many plantations such as the Thai Min Estates, Hun Yeang, Loh Lam Estate and the Singapore United Plantations. Its beaches were also well-known water skiing destinations in the 1950s.
The development of Pasir Ris as a residential town can be traced back to 1983. Elias Road/Pasir Ris Estate Phase 1 was the first development. Next was Loyang N1 to N7 between 1989 to 1997. Many public and private housing units have since been constructed in the neighbourhood. Condominiums are the most abundant in the area, but several HDBs and landed properties exist.
Today, Pasir Ris is well connected with public transportation like other new towns of Singapore. The neighbourhood is served by Pasir Ris MRT, connected to Pasir Ris Bus Interchange. Several important amenities like the White Sands Shopping Mall, Pasir Ris Beach Park, and NTUC Downtown East make family living here possible.
Under the Remaking Our Heartland 3 (ROH3) plans and the URA Master Plan, Pasir Ris will be revamped over the next 5-10 years. The town is envisioned as ‘Our Urban Sanctuary’, and the developments target improving the walking and cycling experience, creating new spaces, and developing Town Centres and homes close to parks.
Upgrading the existing amenities in the neighbourhood will also be carried out to improve the area’s lifestyle. If you plan to invest in Pasir Ris, there are many developments in the pipeline to enjoy in the coming years.
