SINGAPORE - The first batch of residents at SkyVille@Dawson, a three-block development project that is part of the Housing Board's Remaking Our Heartland initiative that aims to spruce up mature estates, received their keys to homes on Saturday afternoon.

Minister for National Development Khaw Boon Wan visited the development and met with some of the new flat owners on Saturday afternoon at Block 85 Dawson Road.

The development features, among other things, 12 Sky Villages - each comprising a cluster of 80 homes that share a sky garden which will facilitate interaction among neighbours. The Sky Gardens link the three tower blocks together.

Mr Khaw also visited the Sky Terrace@Dawson project, which features, among other things, six landscaped Sky Terraces and a roof garden with communal facilities on the multi-stores carpark. The development consists of five blocks of flats.
