PLANNING CONCEPT

Site Context

The Land Parcel is part of the new Lentor Hills Estate, which is set within a predominantly private housing area in Ang Mo Kio Planning Area. Lentor Hills Estate is bordered by Lentor Estate to the north, Teachers’ Housing Estate to the south, Sindo Industrial Estate to the west and a mix of private and public housing to east.

The Land Parcel is designated for private housing development located above commercial uses at the first storey, which are intended to provide amenities, such as retail shops and a supermarket to serve the surrounding community.

The Land Parcel will be directly connected to Lentor MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line. It is also well connected to major arterial roads and expressways such as the upcoming North-South Corridor (NSC), and within easy reach to recreational facilities such as Thomson Nature Park, Yio Chu Kang Stadium & Sports Complex, and educational institutions such as Presbyterian High School, Anderson Primary School, and CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’.

Vision

Lentor Hills Estate is envisioned as a pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood amidst lush greenery with excellent connectivity to public transport. It is intended to provide a mix of high-rise, medium-rise and landed housing options, as well as new amenities, such as retail options and a supermarket. New park spaces will also be implemented as part of the estate to serve the neighbourhood.

The proposed development on the Land Parcel is envisioned as a gateway to the Lentor Hills Estate and the future Hillock Park. It shall be lushly landscaped to enhance the overall sense of greenery in the area and include an attractive living environment that promotes and active lifestyle with the greenery. It shall also include a well-designed public plaza that provides a welcoming sense of arrival to the estate and the future Hillock Park and enable seamless and direct connectivity to/from public transportation nodes such as the Lentor MRT station and bus stops.

The Successful Tenderer is expected to build upon the unique context of the Land Parcel and employ innovative building typologies of appropriate form and scale in the proposed development that responds sensitively to existing developments (e.g. landed homes) the future Hillock Park and the Lentor MRT Station Entrance 1 .

 

Land Use and Quantum

The Land Parcel is to be developed for Residential development with Commercial at first storey. The maximum permissible Gross Floor Area (GFA) for the proposed development is 60,480 m 2 and the total GFA to be built is not to be less than 54,432 m2 . A minimum 1,000 m 2 GFA of Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) shall be provided on the first or second storey of the development. The Successful Tenderer may also provide two ECDCs, each with a minimum 500 m 2 of GFA within the development.

A maximum 8,000 m2 of GFA may developed for Commercial use at the first storey of the proposed development with a minimum 1,000 m2 of GFA for a supermarket.

The supermarket is required to be retained and operated for a minimum of 10 years from the date of the Temporary Occupation Permission (TOP) for the development, or the TOP for the Commercial component if a phased TOP is adopted. After the initial 10-year period of operation, the Successful Tenderer may convert the supermarket space to other Commercial uses, subject to the approval of URA and relevant agencies.

The remaining Commercial GFA can be considered for the following uses:

  1. Shop and restaurant [including Outdoor Refreshment Areas (ORAs), if provided]; and
  2. Other Commercial uses such as office, commercial school, fitness centre, gym, medical clinic, etc. as may be approved by the Competent Authority under the Planning Act (Cap. 232).

Commercial uses, such as bars, pubs, karaoke lounges, night clubs, health centres (e.g. massage parlours), that may result in disamenity to residents of the proposed development and surrounding developments, are not allowed.

Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) Facility

The proposed development is to include an Early Childhood Development Centre(s) 4 (ECDC) for infant care and childcare services. The ECDC shall occupy a minimum GFA of 1,000 m 2 and is expected to accommodate a total of up to 200 children (including infants). The GFA for the ECDC need not be computed as part of the maximum cap of 8,000 m 2 specified under Condition 4.2.2 and 4.2.4 but shall be computed as part of the maximum permissible GFA for the proposed development.

The ECDC is required to be retained and operated for a minimum of 10 years from the date of the grant of license for the ECDC. The ECDC is to be held as part of the single strata lot as mentioned in Condition 4.4.

Uses at First Storey

Activity-Generating Uses (AGUs) such as Shops and Restaurants, Entertainment, Sports and Recreation (including gymnasium and fitness centres, etc.) and other similar uses, are encouraged to be provided at the first storey of the proposed development fronting the public spaces and the covered walkways along Lentor Drive and Lentor Hills Road, to contribute to the vibrancy at the street level.

The Successful Tenderer is given flexibility to propose some commercial uses at the second storey depending on design merits, taking into consideration the location, site context, traffic, and impact on the surroundings, subject to the prevailing Development Control (DC) Guidelines.

Outdoor Refreshment Areas (ORAs)

Outdoor refreshment areas (ORAs) are permitted at the first storey of the development as a natural extension to the indoor seating area within an adjacent restaurant or café. Where provided, the ORAs are to be located and designed such that pedestrian circulation and safety are not compromised. The ORAs are also to be appropriately managed such that they do not cause dis-amenity to residents of existing developments nearby and to future residents of the proposed development.

The GFA for the ORAs will be computed as part of the maximum permissible GFA for the Land Parcel and as part of the maximum allowable 8,000 sqm for Commercial use, as defined under Condition 4.2.2, and subject to the prevailing Development Control Guidelines issued by the Competent Authority under the Planning Act.

Integration of Rapid Transit System (RTS) – Related Structures

The existing at-grade Lentor MRT Station Entrance 1 within the Land Parcel is a permanent structure and comprises a pair of two-way escalators, staircases and passenger lift as well as other RTS facilities and systems including cooling tower and vent shafts. Only minor alteration and addition on the facades fronting the parcel shall be allowed, subject to compliance with LTA’s requirements as set out in Annexes C-2, C-3 and clauses 7.2.25 to 7.2.41 of the Conditions and Requirements of Relevant Competent Authorities & Public Utility Licensees.

The Successful Tenderer shall carry out works and integrate the MRT Entrance structure as part of the overall building form and architectural treatment of the development without interruptions to RTS operation and maintenance. The sheltered public circulation around the structure including the covered walkway network and the key pedestrian access to the public plaza via a safeguarded Knock-out-Panel at ground level shall be well integrated to provide an attractive sense of arrival and a seamless pedestrian experience.

Electric Vehicles (EV) Charging Infrastructure Provision

To future-proof new development sites in Singapore, the Successful Tenderer is required to have active and passive provision of EV charging points for the proposed development.

Active provision refers to charging points that are fully wired and ready for use by EVs. Passive provision refers to catering of sufficient electrical power at the consumer switch room(s) and/or substation(s) to allow more chargers to be installed and activated easily when demand increases in future. As a start, the Successful Tenderer is to ensure at least 15% of the total car-park lots can minimally support 3-Phase AC Type 2 chargers with power output of 7kW per charging point (i.e. passive provision), of which at least 1% must be installed with EV charging points (i.e. active provision]. The detailed requirements are set out in Clauses 7.2.50 to 7.2.52 of the Conditions and Requirements of Relevant Competent Authorities and Public Utility Licensees.
