THE Singapore Government has announced plans to build another 5,523 private homes in the Clementi area on the island republic's west coast. The first batch of 276 condominium units has been scheduled for completion next year, The Straits Times said. Also in the pipeline are 22 units of landed properties. The remaining 5,225 homes have been slated for development over a longer time span on a further nine sites, covering 48.12 hectares. This is the latest in a string of development plans for popular residential areas released by the state Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) over the last few weeks. It has already announced details of plans for three eastern areas - Bedok, Tampines and Pasir Ris, Upper Thompson Road area and, over the weekend, the River Valley area - plus one district in central southern Singapore. The phased release of information is aimed at giving potential home buyers a comprehensive picture of the developments coming up in different areas. In May, the URA announced 29,000 condominium and landed property units were likely to be marketed in Singapore this year. Analysts responded by predicting property prices could fall by between 10 and 15 per cent in the next two years in the face of such a supply boost. Muted response to recent property auctions indicates buyers are waiting for further government announcements to see how serious it is to cool the market, according to The Straits Times. In the Clementi area, favoured by Singapore's Japanese expatriate community, Regenthill Properties already has six condominium developments and 10 landed properties in two projects on Avenue Six under construction. A one-hectare site on West Coast Road to yield 39 landed units was launched by the URA last month, while another 12 landed units have been approved.
