History of Slim Barracks Rise at One-North
Located in Central Singapore, One-North is an excellent business and residential area in Queenstown, covering over two square kilometers. It derives the name from the reality that Singapore is only a degree north of the equator. This beautiful zone came up as an idea in 1991, meant to be a renowned science and technology centre. Its growth and development would ensure that it catered to the ever-growing knowledge-based economy in Singapore.
However, since 1991, the place has kept its old serene landscape and tranquility. Though the idea was already in place, nothing happened hastily to make it the magical region it is today. It was not until 2001 that the government put it to action; it launched the plan officially. They based it on bringing up a worldwide talent hub to welcome all sorts of discoveries.
The task of developing this incredible landscape lay on JTC Corporation, a governmental organization that spearheads industrial developments. And the goal was to gradually but steadily create a place where experts and fellow citizens would live and work. Due to its closeness to Holland Village, it would offer not only intellectual but also social and recreational facilities.
Beginning its construction in March 2006, JTC did a beautiful job, and one-north is now a veritable business district and residential area. It put up homes and fully serviced apartments near the business area to allow people to reach their workplaces in the shortest time possible.
For the plan to succeed, the region had to be divided. The subzone was split into nine; Biopolis, Fusionopolis, Rochester Park, Vista, Wessex, Pixel, Mediapolis, Nepal Hill, and LaunchPad.
These developments have played vital roles in ensuring that one-north is a success story. They serve different functions, entailing different classes of people and facilities.
Biopolis is the epitome of the biomedical industry, at the same time housing numerous five-star hotels, restaurants, and food cafes. Fusionopolis covers over 30 hectares, providing room for ICT, engineering, and science industries.
Rochester Park is on an extensive 16 hectares of land, acting as a vital commemoration site for Singapore’s past. Vista has top-notch offices and world-class suites, while Wessex is entirely a residential area.
Pixel offers the best facilities for the Infocomm and Media industry, while Mediapolis is a vast 19 hectares region with excellent IT infrastructure to support the media, science, and Infocomm sectors. On the other hand, Nepal Hill is a leadership training and talent development centre, harboring great schools and service corporations.
The LaunchPad started as an industrial area with lots of factories. After a few touches and reinforcements, it is now a hub that sparks innovations and collaborations among capitalists.
