The Housing Board's waterfront project, My Waterway@Punggol, bagged a gold award at a global award ceremony in Taiwan earlier today.
The Housing Board (HDB) is the only public agency this year to clinch the global Prix d'Excellence award. The award is given out by the International Real Estate Federation, which has chapters in over 60 countries.
The 4.2km landscaped waterway was evaluated on its architecture and design, development and construction, benefit to the community and environmental impact. It competed under the public infrastructures and amenities category.
Said HDB chief executive Cheong Koon Hean: "My Waterway@Punggol is a testament of HDB's commitment to create vibrant and sustainable towns, housing active and cohesive communities."
