Walking Distance: 100m
Waterway Terraces I is the first housing project along My Waterway @ Punggol, with green landscapes inspired by terraced rice fields across Southeast Asia. The precinct has many green features which encourage residents to lead an eco-friendly lifestyle. Some of these green features are:
• Energy Efficient Lifts
The lifts utilise AC Variable Voltage and Variable Frequency (VVVF) motor drives, and have a sleep mode function, which switches off the lights and ventilation fans when the lift is in idle mode.
• Rain Garden (Bioretention Swales)
The rain garden, located around the common green area, serves to detain and treat rainwater run-offs before discharging them into the storm water drains for more effective water management.
• Sun Pipe System
This system is installed within the basement car park to help bring daylight into the car park, thus reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day.
My Waterway@Punggol was designed and built by HDB, and it is Singapore’s first man-made waterway. The waterway is 4.2km long, and meanders through the entire Punggol Eco-Town. The design of the waterway and the landscape promenade embraces the area’s rich coastal heritage, providing more opportunities for water-based recreational activities and sports right next to the heartlands. From fresh water mangroves that clean the water, to themed street outdoor furniture made from recycled materials, My Waterway@Punggol is an achievement in urban sustainability.
