Paya Lebar Central Master Plan – Key Growth Area
Paya Lebar Central will be a bustling, integrated commercial centre with offices, retail and attractive public spaces flowing with activity.
Today, the area is well known for its distinctive local Malay character in terms of its shops, eating places and activities such as the popular Geylang Serai Market and the Hari Raya Bazaars which line Geylang Road every year during the Ramadan period.
The location of Paya Lebar Central has great potential to be a destination commercial hub. A mere 10-minute drive from the CBD, Paya Lebar Central is near to major expressways (PIE and ECP) and major roads (Sims Avenue, Paya Lebar Road and Changi Road).
Getting here by public transport is very convenient with the Paya Lebar MRT interchange station (Circle and East-West lines) located in the heart of Paya Lebar Central.
Well-landscaped, uniquely designed public spaces at key focal points will add character to the area and provide the setting for community events.
In addition to the introduction of new commercial developments, the distinctive local identity will be enhanced with the future Wisma Geylang Serai and a new pedestrian mall and plaza space along Geylang Road.
