Punggol Digital District (PDD), masterplanned and developed by Singapore’s lead industrial infrastructure developer, JTC, is planned as part of Singapore’s strategy to sustain long-term economic growth by creating new development areas island-wide, and bringing good jobs and social amenities closer to residents. The first district in Singapore to adopt a one-integrated-masterplan approach that brings together a business park, a university (Singapore Institute of Technology, SIT) and community facilities, PDD aims to create synergies, enable close integration between industry and academia, and catalyse community-building.
Situated in Punggol Coast, PDD is envisioned to be a vibrant and inclusive district underpinned by cutting-edge technology, as well as urban and social innovation which make everyday living more convenient and sustainable. As Singapore’s first Enterprise District, PDD will provide flexibility for the land use mix and scale to be curated at the district-level, enabling deeper integration and synergy of different uses and spaces to realise the vision of the District. The District is also planned to be connected to the greater Punggol area, with a car-lite, green, and vibrant environment. In addition to bringing more exciting job and learning opportunities closer to home, the District is also planned to include green links to the waterfront and also more public spaces for the community to relax and unwind.
PDD will house key growth sectors of the digital economy such as cyber security and IoT, and is expected to bring approximately 28,000 exciting jobs closer to residents in Punggol and the north-east region. Through the clustering of these growth sectors, the Government aims to create an ecosystem of open innovation and a conducive test-bed environment that will enable businesses and the community to thrive in a digital economy.
