Bidadari New Town is bounded by Bartley Road,Upper Serangoon Road, Sennett Estate and Mount Vernon Road.
Bidadari is one of only three areas targeted for residential development under the Land Use plan released by The Ministry of National Development on 31 Jan 2013, to build up to 700,000 new homes for a projected population of 6.9 million in 2030.
There are 11,000 residential homes in the pipeline for Bidadari, while Tampines North and Tengah are the other estates earmarked to be the upcoming New Towns.
Bidadari has been called “The Next Bishan”, one of the much sought after and prime residential estates in Singapore.
Bidadari is set to be transformed into a “distinctive and sustainable tranquil urban oasis”.
To that end, NParks will be building a 10ha Bidadari Park, transforming it into a peaceful retreat retaining its hilly and lush landscape, and celebrating its history and heritage. Bidadari Park will be well-connected to the HDB estates through pockets of open spaces. Part of the tree-lined Upper Aljunied Road (from Upper Serangoon Road to Vernon Park) will be converted into a heritage walk for pedestrians. It will be very pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly and have seamless connections between transport nodes and places of attraction.
To bring greater convenience to residents, a commercial development called Market Square will be built next to Woodleigh MRT station.
Here is a video by HDB highlighting some of the upcoming developments in Bidadari.
