Singapore’s District 8 includes Farrer Park, Little India and the area around Serangoon Road. A large proportion of Little India and Farrer Park’s properties are shophouses zoned as commercial/residential, with commercial on the ground floor and homes or apartments above.
The district is currently served by the North-East Line at Little India MRT and Farrer Park MRT, making it ideal for business commuters. Little India MRT is due to be connected to the Downtown Line, with works to be completed in 2016, so properties in the area can expect to benefit significantly from increased transport links. The area around Serangoon MRT is particularly well served by public transport as Sergangoon MRT is an interchange between the Circle Line and North-East Line, and it’s also connected to the Serangoon Bus Interchange.
There are many public housing options in District 8, such as the HDB flats at Farrer Park View, which is near to the Farrer Park MRT, and numerous HDB blocks in the vicinity of Serangoon MRT, as well as flats at the landmark Zhujiao Centre and Tekka Market beside Little India MRT.
Buyers with a little more in their budget on the hunt for Serangoon Road condominiums also have plenty of choices, ranging from City Square Residences to the upcoming Eight Riversuites.
The large numbers of shophouses in District 8 offers a quaint and unique boutique experience to discerning shoppers looking for a break from the generic, sprawling malls. Shophouses are becoming increasingly popular as investment properties, too, especially to investors looking to benefit from their relative scarcity in Singapore. In District 8 the proximity to the Downtown Core, the unique attributes as a more “boutique” shopping experience and their historical value makes shophouses an in-demand investment opportunity.
One of the most prominent fixtures in District 8 is Connexion, an integrated healthcare and hospitality complex housing the Farrer Park Hospital. The healthcare facility s a notable addition to District 8, completed in 2014. It is well-located beside the Farrer Park MRT and expands upon the existing infrastructure, amenities and services offered in District 8.
