Punggol Point Crown
Punggol Point is envisioned to be a district that embraces nature and pays tribute to Punggol’s history. Punggol Point Crown is inspired by the old Ponggol Zoo that was located near the Strait of Johor between the late 1920s and the early 1940s and owned by the late William Lawrence Soma Basapa.
The 1,545-unit public housing development is divided into five thematic zones based on the natural habitats of the animal species that lived in Ponggol Zoo. Communal living and play areas, as well as landscaping, will reflect these design themes. For example, the playground in the Shoreline zone will feature climbing elements reminiscent of stepping stones and boulders, as well as motifs of wader birds and fish. Punggol Point Crown will also have an animal-themed heritage walk dotted with signboards displaying interesting facts about Ponggol Zoo’s history, animals and significant visitors. This journey is lined by native mature trees on both sides to create a Forest Avenue effect to rekindle the old Ponggol zoo experience.
