About Paya Lebar Central
Paya Lebar Central is a special focus precinct which will be developed and transformed with quality hotels, offices, and vibrant retail and entertainment amenities. The envisaged bustling commercial centre is one of the hubs to be developed outside the city centre as part of URA’s larger decentralization strategy in its concept plan to provide alternatives for businesses and jobs closer to homes. Being the first, and probably the best located commercial site, to spearhead the growth of Paya Lebar Central into the next business hub brimming with vibrant activities, Paya Lebar Square is poised to be the future iconic landmark of the new urban fringe.
Commercial Node/ Seamless Connectivity
With direct all-weather pedestrian connections to the Paya Lebar MRT Interchange Station serving the Circle Line and East-West Line. Paya Lebar Square is conveniently accessible via public transport to all parts of Singapore. It is also well served by major arterial roads and expressways, such as the PIE, KPE, Geylang Road and Paya Lebar Road.
Surrounding Amenities and Businesses
Paya Lebar Square is well supported by amenities in the vicinity such as the revamped Geylang Serai Market, existing and future retail centers such as Tanjong Katong Complex, Joo Chiat Complex, Geylang Public Library and other recreation centres including Geylang East Sports Village. The kampong-style Malay Village in Geylang Serai will be redeveloped to include a civic centre, community club, heritage gallery and plaza surrounded by retail stores and eateries. Nearby established developments include the Singapore Post Centre, Certis Cisco Building, light industrial estates and a future commercial building along Sims Avenue/Tanjong Katong Road. In addition, an upcoming Continuing Education and Training (CET) East campus which is under construction at the adjacent site will attract more working population to this location. A new civic centre and 3 central neighbourhood areas at Haig Road, Aljunied Road and Pipit Road will also add to the liveliness of the commercial hub.
