Did you know that there are 28 districts in Singapore? Whether you live in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD) or in the corners of the island, the different areas and neighbourhoods can be divided into 28 districts. Starting from District 1 which encompasses Raffles Place, Cecil, Marina, People's Park, the list goes on to District 13, Pasir Ris in the East and District 25, Woodlands in the North.
Before we dive into each district, let's briefly discuss the three regions in Singapore; Core Central Region (CCR), Outside Central Region (OCR) and Rest of Central Region (RCR). With its suggestive name, most of us would have easily been able to guess which areas CCR consists of; the CBD. But what we may not know is which other districts define this term and of course, what defines the others. Here is a simple breakdown:
Districts 1,2,4 (part), 6, 9, 10, 11
Districts 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20
Districts 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28
But what if you don’t live in Singapore’s prime CCR? Not to worry, as there are always opportunities in the other districts as pointed out by The Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) 2019 Master Plan. Through this plan we are able to see the latest in Singapore’s development plan which will boost transport links, jobs and property development. This plan will also aid property enthusiasts, such as yourself, in your purchasing/upgrading/investing decisions. Some of the upcoming districts include: D3, D3, D7, D10, D14, D20, D22, D24.
