New Developments Around Penrose

While many thought that the Kallang Basin area has already completed its facelift, Sports Singapore announced in Aug 2019 that the transformation of the area is only midway. The project, termed “Kallang Alive”, consists of five other complimentary buildings to the existing Singapore Sports Hub, namely the Singapore Tennis Centre, Kallang Football Hub, Alive Gateway and Loop, Benaan Kapal Green, and the redevelopment of the Kallang Theatre with its adjoining areas into an integrated entertainment, sport, and lifestyle centre. Residents of Penrose condo will get to enjoy the new Jalan Benaan Kapal waterfront, where an active community park space will be coming up. The waterfront can have park connectors, riverside lookout points, and a multi-generational ‘enabling gym’ for all those residing the vicinity to enjoy.

The better known Paya Lebar transformation is also midway, having cleared part of the old low-rise industrial factories north of Singpost Center. A large part of the restored land is earmarked for commercial purposes, which can be integrated offices, malls, and homes.

Curious About Penrose?

Penrose Neighbouring Estates


Geylang is the township along the city fringe east of the Central Business District. Geylang Road and its parallel Sims Avenue, stretching from Kallang MRT to Paya Lebar MRT station, is best known for its low rise, conservation shop houses that gives this district its unique flavour. This was where one of the oldest Malay settlements in Singapore is located, and many of the Malay architecture and design of old can be seen preserved in the murals and appearance of these shop houses. Today, the Geylang Planning Area is sub-divided into five zones, of which Penrose is sited within Aljunied, and just South of Kallang Way.


Located South of the Pan-Island Expressway and West of Paya Lebar, this region is primarily residential, with industrial light factories and warehouses to the far East and West end. The Geylang East Swimming Complex and Geylang East Public Library has long served the community of residents staying in Macpherson, Aljunied, Paya Lebar and Geylang.

This area is also known for its educational institutions, like the long-established Geylang Methodist School that caters to both the local Primary and Secondary syllabus, the world-renowned James Cook University offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and global foundation building schools like Nexus International School and The Winstedt School to provide quality education to children from 3 years old to 18 years old. Children residing in Penrose condo will have their educational roadmap easily planned out with these top schools just within walking distance to the condominium.

Foodies adore this area, with the many eateries and cuisines littered along Sims Avenue and Geylang Road. Local delights like the Famous Prawn Noodle Soup with Michelin Plate and Famous Beef Kway Teow can be found closer to the Kallang side, whereas the famous Chinese restaurants like Sin Huat Eating House and Sik Bao Sin are located at the other end. Diners looking for Dim Sum, Malaysia eats, and Claypot delights will not be disappointed.

Penrose Car Drop Off Point
Kallang Way

Kallang Way is the light industrial hub located North of Penrose condominium. Other than strata industrial units housing small and medium enterprises, this area is home to Multi-national brands too, like Siemens, Infineon and Qualcomm. This area is home to 2 other schools as well, Canossa Convent Primary School and Macpherson Primary School, so Penrose is within 1 kilometer to 3 primary schools which make it an ideal residence for families with young children looking for an advantage to entering these schools.


In the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Master Plan of 2014, the Paya Lebar area was handpicked as one of the five growth regions in Singapore. It was zoned to become the next up-and-coming residential and commercial hub of the East, to further the country’s move to decentralise offices and corporations from the Central Business District in line with the city’s plan of sustainable growth. Through participation by key stakeholders in the pilot Business Improvement District (BID) programme, Paya Lebar has begun its transformation into an important commercial hub.

Lendlease, Low Keng Huat / Sun Venture and Singapore Post Limited has each connected ,via sheltered walkways and bridges, their integrated office and mall buildings with the Paya Lebar MRT Interchange. By doing so, they achieved synergy through collaborations like precinct-wide recreational and community events to promote Paya Lebar as an active and lively precinct. Together with the older shopping centers of Tanjong Katong Complex, City Plaza and Kinex, the region has become a must-go shopping destination for residents of Penrose who are looking for unique wares or authentic Malay and Peranakan cuisines. The new Wisma Geylang Serai (WGS) is the community cultural and civic centre in the Geylang Serai and Joo Chiat area. Located within the building are the Geylang Serai Community Club, the Geylang Serai Heritage Gallery Family Service and Child Care Centre, the South East Community Development Council, a Senior Care Centre, together with other cultural arts and community-related facilities.

More is to be expected at Paya Lebar, as the old single-storey flatted factories along the Eunos avenues are to be torn down and re-zoned for commercial and residential uses. This is concurrent with the move of the Paya Lebar Airport, which will effectively remove the height restrictions of the new buildings in the future. This means more amenities for the nearby Penrose condo residents.
