District 25 - Woodlands, Woodgrove
Woodlands is located in the northern region of Singapore and is connected to Malaysia’s southernmost city, Johor Bahru, by the Johor-Singapore Causeway (convenient for a weekend trip across the border). The area earned its name because it appeared to be heavily wooded when viewed from the Johor side of the straits.
Before development occurred in the area, early Woodlands was dotted with rubber plantations and poultry farms and occupied by squatters and villagers who made their living as shopkeepers and vegetable farmers. After the first HDB flats were built in 1972, the Woodlands area started to see more industrialization in the following years as kampongs were cleared out to make way for the modern residential estates and facilities you'll see today.
As with many neighborhoods, Woodlands has its variety of large suburban malls such as 888 Plaza, Causeway Point and Vista Point.
Affordable homes in a mature HDB estate. Woodlands is home to undiscovered value-buys if one digs deeper.
Generally a quiet and sleepy part of Singapore and fully residential focused. Perfect for those who like to indulge in low-key living.
Not all properties perform equally. Buying the right condo takes in-depth research and study.

Affordable township to reside in
If you want to delve into a little more local fare, wet markets (even a wholesale fish market) can also be found with rows and rows of stalls selling fresh produce and goods for cheaper prices than what you would get at a normal supermarket. With a mix of locals and some expatriates in the area, Woodlands is populated with many families thanks to the schools available here, including the Singapore American School for international students.
Designated areas where parks have been built or where woodlands have been preserved integrate nature into the modern landscape and offer tranquil spaces for family walks and relaxation, and attracts nature lovers residing in the area and from afar.
Conveniently located amenities and the seemingly slower pace of life is conducive for older residents, while the relatively affordable property prices in the area draw in young couples as well.
