Other residential advancement places in the area include those on Anchorvale Street, which can yield between 6,000 and 7,000 new dwellings, includes Lee. Hence, anywhere from 10,500 to 12,000 brand-new residences could be offered in Sengkang in the future, including executive condominiums and personal real estate.
