Most apartments get set out in 12- or 25-story point blocks, as was customary in the 1970s. Several portions of the estate have recently undergone reconstruction as part of the massive redevelopment initiative. Consequently, it is possible to discern sections of higher blocks grouped interspersed with the older buildings. Several residential land plots in Djitsun Mall have been removed and sold to private developers for redevelopment as the neighborhood matures.
Early history and the background
Throughout most of the 19th century, the area now Ang Mo Kio gets deserted. Only during the rubber boom at the beginning of the 20th century did settlers become drawn to the region. Many regions get depicted on historical maps of Singapore as the Ang Mo Kio Forest Reserve was home to numerous plantation estates. The mukim of Ang Mo Kio, according to The Straits Times in 1934, was the rubber plantation-filled region between Thomson Road and Yio Chu Kang Road.
According to the Urban Redevelopment Authority, the 1,336 hectares that make up the Ang Mo Kio Planning Area gets located in Singapore’s North-East region. Yishun is bordered to the north by Ang Mo Kio, the northeast by Sengkang, the east by Serangoon, the south by Bishan, and the west by Central Water Catchment. The town itself is divided into seven neighborhoods, starting with Neighbourhood 1 in the west, moving clockwise to Neighbourhood 6 in the north, and finishing with Neighbourhood 7 in the center of town.
The town’s road network uses a hierarchy of road sizes by design, with streets serving as local access and avenues serving as essential thoroughfares. The exception is Ang Mo Kio Avenue 12, a minor road in an industrial area of Ang Mo Kio. The town’s streets get used to guiding traffic from the avenues to the designated blocks. The town streets get built in a grid-like pattern.
The Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange provides feeder bus services from the MRT stations to each neighborhood connected to the Ang Mo Kio MRT station through an underground pedestrian corridor. These services access Shenton Way, Orchard Road, Marina Centre, and Marine Parade from the city’s financial and commercial center, the Central Area.
