Do Growth Hotspots in the Masterplan Usually Mean Profits for Investors
A potentially large neighbourhood, around two-thirds the size of Toa Payoh can be expected to be developed in the near to mid term between Lentor Ave and Upper Thomson Road.
Upcoming Lentor area projects are earliest among this wave of upcoming residential sites and corresponding infrastructure development, including the North South Expressway (Completion 2026) that will help residents reach town areas in a shorter time.
The early mover advantage can be expected for investors in Lentor as this neighbourhood transforms and experiences escalating land prices over time as we have witnessed historically in most recently developed neighbourhoods like Beauty World, Bidadari, Seng Kang and Punggol.
Based on past trends on emerging hotspots, property prices have shown a high correlation of growth when the government invests in infrastructure in the locality.
There are major and minor growth hotspots and investors with a longer investment term horizon would do best in the major ones where upcoming commercial, residential hubs, and amenities are completed over time.
The upcoming transformational plans in Lentor presents a great opportunity for investors to ride on growth plans that URA has in the coming years with a high potential of capital gains.
