Yishun residents can expect a new community hub in seven years' time at Chong Pang City.
New integrated development
The new multi-storey development will occupy the current site where the CC is located, along with the site where Blk 102 Yishun Avenue 5, a commercial HDB, is now situated.
17 affected shop owners from Blk 102 will be compensated for "reasonable expense" and according to market value, Singapore Land Authority said to the Straits Times.
That will take up a space of about 0.9ha, almost the size of one football field.
This new community hub will include Chong Pang community club, swimming pools, gym and fitness studio.
The hawkers at Chong Pang Market and Food Centre will also be relocated once the building is ready.
There are currently a total of 179 stalls in the market and hawker centre, a majority are market stalls.
Construction of the new integrated development will start in the second half of 2022, and the development is targeted to complete by 2027.
With the relocation of hawkers, the old market and food centre will be developed into a community plaza by 2028.
