History of Sengkang
Sengkang means ‘prosperous harbour’ in Chinese, and was once occupied by fishing villages and rubber and pepper plantations.
Evolving Through The Years
Since its early days as a fishing village, Sengkang has undergone rapid development over the years.
It was the first satellite town to have its major public transport amenities built in tandem with the main public housing development. The Sengkang Light Rail Transit (LRT) system was developed as the existing public housing blocks were being built in the late 1990s.
Today, the town has been transformed into a 21st century township, with amenities for work and play for residents. The housing developments there are known for their nautical-themed names, harkening back to the town’s past.
Sengkang’s main shopping centre, Compass One, is a one-stop mall that serves residents’ needs, and includes a library within it.
The LRT stations developed around the town also offer residents a convenient transport mode to explore the different parts of Sengkang.
