SERS – Transform Dawson estate

HDB has announced its latest plans to transform the Dawson estate. This is part of its efforts to create a new and improved living environment for residents, while injecting greater vibrancy by attracting younger families to the estate. 3,700 new units of 2- to 5-room flats will be built in Dawson by 2020, to serve as replacement flats for residents at Tanglin Halt estate which has been identified for Selective En Bloc Redevelopment Scheme (SERS), said the Housing Development Board (HDB) . The Selective En bloc Redevelopment Scheme (SERS) is part of the Government’s Estate Renewal Strategy to give a new lease of life to older estates. SERS offers flat owners the unique opportunity to move to a new home with a fresh 99-year lease, while at the same time remain close to their neighbours.

 HDB will develop five land parcels in Dawson with new facilities, as follows:
    •  About 3,700 units of 2-room, 3-room, 4-room and 5-room flats;
    •  An array of commercial facilities comprising 30 shops, four eateries and a supermarket; and
    •  A hawker centre.
