Master planner. Developer. Since its inception in 1968, JTC has played a strategic role in ensuring Singapore stays innovative, dynamic, and sensitive to the winds of change.
As the government agency paving the way forward for Singapore’s industrial landscape, it is developing infrastructure, systems and initiatives that bridge cutting-edge technology and human skill.
JTC is championing clean, green and smart estates as attractive destinations for workers and communities alike, cultivating an environment that is not only sustainable but nurtures ideas shaping the future. These include Singapore’s specialised wafer fabrication parks that are home to the country’s semiconductor and electronics industries.
Singapore has four wafer fabrication parks that produce some of the most advanced chips that power today’s sophisticated electronics and machines.
Spanning across 374 hectares of land (equivalent to 5 soccer fields), the four parks cater to the stringent requirements of wafer fabrication companies. Located in Pasir Ris, Tampines, North Coast and Woodlands, they are home to 14 world-class global semiconductor firms, including 9 out of the world’s top 15 semiconductor companies. Over 18,600 people work in the parks today.
Born in the 1990s, made over in the 2020s. Singapore’s wafer fabrication parks are getting rejuvenated with a five-year estate enhancement plan.
Starting with the parks in Tampines and Pasir Ris, expect to be surrounded by more greenery and integrated community spaces.
Look forward to more attractive estates coming your way!
Greener and more sustainable
Over 1,000 trees will be planted along streets and other urban pockets to create a lush work environment. Companies are also taking a step closer to a sustainable future through deploying solar panels on factory rooftops.
6.7 km of cycling paths will connect the wafer fabrication parks to the island-wide Park Connector Network. Visitors will be able to access parks and green spaces such as Coney Island Park, Punggol Waterway Park, Pasir Ris Park and Bedok Reservoir Park. 5.3 km of sheltered walkways will also be built to allow better access to key amenity nodes and public bus stops.
More community spaces
With residential estates nearby, plans are currently underway to transform the wafer fabrication parks into work-live-play destinations. A host of lifestyle amenities and food options are also in the works to provide common spaces that bring communities together.
