Rising Demand For Bukit Batok Properties

Bukit Batok has come a long way. Once a quarrying village, it is today a self-sustaining residential town.
The various facilities and lifestyle amenities that have emerged in recent years continue to elevate the area’s appeal. Popular hangout spots amongst Bukit Batok residents include HillV2 – a mixed development which serves everything from zi char to Japanese cuisine, to cafes like Starbucks and Dean & Deluca.
Recent improvements to the public transportation network such as the new Downtown Line 2 (DTL2) MRT stations, Cashew and HIllview in Bukit Batok has further contributed to its growing popularity, and this is perhaps reflected in the rising demand for properties in the area.
