Choa Chu Kang has been home for many Singaporeans since the first HDB flats were completed along Teck Whye Avenue in 1977. Today, the HDB town is mature and self-sustained, and is a highly desirable location to stay in given its amenities, green spaces, schools, and community and civic services.
Choa Chu Kang houses more than 169,000 HDB residents across 48,900 flats. The planning boundaries for the town stretch from Choa Chu Kang Drive in Yew Tee to Bukit Batok Road and Choa Chu Kang Road in the Keat Hong and Teck Whye sub-zones. Other planning sub-zones include Peng Siang, Choa Chu Kang Central, and Choa Chu Kang North.

Lifestyle

Most lifestyle and entertainment activities in Choa Chu Kang are found around Lot One, a shopping mall beside the Choa Chu Kang bus interchange and MRT station. The station is also the terminal for the Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit, connecting it to the neighbouring Bukit Panjang.
Lot One shopping mall is beside Choa Chu Kang station on the North-South and Bukit Panjang LRT line.
Choa Chu Kang is also served by Yew Tee MRT Station on the North-South Line, and its Teck Whye neighbourhood is served by the Bukit Panjang MRT Station on the Downtown Line.
Beside Lot One is the 11-hectare Choa Chu Kang Park that features a range of family-friendly activities including a skate plaza, fitness stations, lawns, and event spaces. A new Safra clubhouse is being built close to the park and will be completed in 2022. It will feature a new sheltered swimming pool, running track, sports bar, preschool, and an indoor playground. Across the clubhouse, the Choa Chu Kang Sports Centre will be upgraded and will offer new water play features and a fully air-conditioned indoor sports hall.
