While some feel it’s a pity to redevelop an old neighbourhood chock-full of history, analysts say that the redevelopment plans will inject life and vibrancy into an otherwise sleepy estate.
Wong says: “The prospects for Dakota Crescent seem favourable. Accessibility scores highly, with two MRT stations serving the area, and the CBD is only a short drive away. The Kallang Leisure Park is also within proximity. Also located nearby is the Paya Lebar sub-regional centre, and should it be
developed as planned, it would definitely bode well for the redeveloped Dakota Crescent as well.
“With limited land available for redevelopment, combined with its central location and abundance of amenities, properties in Dakota Crescent are expected to remain highly sought after by investors and owner occupiers alike,” Wong added.
