Jurong East, alongside Jurong Lake, presents an exciting opportunity to be developed into the biggest lakeside venue for both business and leisure, known as Jurong Lake District. Located near high-value industries, the future Tuas Port, two world-class research universities, and offers convenient connections to the city and Malaysia.
Jurong Lake District’s master plan was first released in 2008 as part of URA’s efforts to incubate new employment centers outside the main Central city area, offering more quality jobs and recreational options closer to residential. Ever since, the district is shaping up as an up-and-coming commercial node, especially around the Jurong East MRT station.
Furthermore, with the addition of the High-Speed Rail to Kuala Lumpur, Jurong Lake district will create new markets and opportunities in a metropolitan region with an estimate of more than 10 million people. It will also improve the flow of talent and travelers, facilitate knowledge and business, cultural exchanges, and stronger social links thus making JLD an attractive hub for regional businesses.
