Jurong property owners cheer rail news
This article talks about the rapidly developing Jurong area, and the happiness of property owners due to the rise of property prices in the area.
With many shopping malls such as Jem, Westgate, Jcube, IMM and Jurong Point located all in the Jurong area, this place has become a favourable shopping area for residents. Moreover, Jem and Westgate offers shops such as Marks&Spencer, Isetan and Robinsons, which are usually located in the central area of Singapore. The malls also have many restaurants and food courts.
With so many facilities available around residents, a rail terminal providing transport services for citizens to and fro Singapore and Malaysia is going to be built in Jurong. This will cause property prices to rise due to the convenience available here when one wants to go Malaysia.
Although having more facilities in an area is good, but this may cause overpopulation in the area. More residential areas are being built in Jurong, and not only the residents frequent the facilities, people from other neighbourhoods come here to enjoy a great shopping experience too. Therefore, the area may be overpopulated because of the high developments.
