Important Hubs from The Opus
Paya Lebar Central/Quarters Rejuvenation
Paya Lebar Quarters will be redeveloped and its total industrial floor space will be increased significantly. The redeveloped estate will offer more jobs as well as a more attractive work environment with features such as a cycling network and an amenities centre. Residents hoping for short commutes to work can also look forward to new jobs at the upcoming PLQ 1, 2, and 3. This new-generation innovation and office park is targeted at research and professional industries such as food, lifestyle and logistics, and will boast a vibrant connection with Paya Lebar Square and Singapore Post.
Paya Lebar Central will be a bustling, integrated commercial node with offices, retail and attractive public spaces flowing with activity. The distinctive local identity will be enhanced with the future Wisma Geylang Serai and a new pedestrian mall and plaza space along Geylang Road.
The location of Paya Lebar Central has great potential to be a destination commercial hub. A mere 10-minute drive from the CBD, Paya Lebar Central is near to major expressways (PIE and ECP) and major roads (Sims Avenue, Paya Lebar Road and Changi Road).
Getting here by public transport is very convenient with the Paya Lebar MRT interchange station (Circle and East-West lines) located in the heart of Paya Lebar Central.
New commercial and mixed-use developments are springing up around Paya Lebar MRT Interchange Station – along with the Workforce Development Agency’s Lifelong Learning Institute. In addition to the introduction of new commercial developments, the distinctive local identity will be enhanced with the future Wisma Geylang Serai, together with a new pedestrian mall and plaza space along Geylang Road.

The Opus Condo is located near Bayshore Estate, which is walking distance to East Coast Park with existing public and private housings in the surrounding, the 60-ha precinct will be a new lifestyle waterfront urban village for about 12,500 dwelling units of public and private housing.
Imagine a vibrant neighbourhood where the main street is lined with shops, cafes, grocery stores, childcare and elderly facilities within a short walk or bicycle ride from home. Residents can enjoy tree-lined walkways or cycle along dedicated cycling paths to Bayshore MRT station and Bedok South MRT station – which will be within 5 to 10 minutes from their homes.
With less reliance on cars, the future residential developments here need not provide 1 car park lot for every unit.
- Bayshore Street as community spine
- Anchoring the precinct is a 1 km-long main street with wider pavements for a more pleasant walking and cycling experience.
- Lined with trees, shops, cafes and parks, this street will be connected to a network of courtyard spaces within nearby residential blocks, offering a diverse range of facilities and extended community spaces for all to enjoy.
- This community spine will also lead residents to an integrated transport node above Bedok South MRT Station where residents can shop and dine.
- Gateway to East Coast Park
- Future Bayshore residents will be able to walk directly to East Coast Park via a new landscaped bridge planned across East Coast Parkway and enjoy access to other parks and open spaces across the precinct. Visitors can easily access the East Coast Park with a 10 to 15 minute walk from the MRT stations.
- Reminisce old coastlines
- Residents can enjoy a linear green that marks the former coastline and is nestled behind the existing row of low-rise private residential developments along Upper East Coast Road.
- Future-Ready Community
- Bayshore Precinct is also being planned as a future-ready community, which is sustainable, people-centric and car-lite with flexibility to accommodate change over time. In the future, the use of Autonomous Vehicles may present opportunities to free up space for parks, community facilities and other uses. The master plan will anticipate changes in technology in phases, providing resiliency to adapt to the changing needs.

The Opus Schools and Education
Tanjong Katong Primary School
Tanjong Katong Primary started in 2001 as an amalgamation of 3 schools, Fowlie Primary (a result of an earlier merger between Fowlie and Seraya Schools), Haig Boys’ and Mountbatten Primary Schools. In its earlier years, Tanjong Katong Primary was well-known for its higher proportion of international students. Even up till today, the school continues to boast of a student population that comes from diverse backgrounds in terms of their nationality and ethnicity. Since TKP opened its doors, it has made a name for itself with the all-around, balanced education it provides as well as the caring culture within the TKP community.
TKP believe that every child is different and each comes with his/her unique talents and needs. As such, are committed to nurturing each of them to fulfil his/her potential. The School hope that through providing a holistic education that develops their students in the various domains, they will have opportunities to discover their strengths. TKP also hope that they would also be exposed to ways in which they can use what they have learnt to benefit others.
The Schools’s Vision, ‘Passionate Learners, Caring Leaders, Global Citizens’, is an expression of aspiration for our students so that they will be prepared and equipped for the Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world and the future ahead. Striving to provide a dynamic learning environment so that their students may develop a love of learning, not just learning during their schooling years but into their life, long after they have left school. TKP nurture them so that they could excel in their pursuits. When they succeed in life, they would have empathy and care about others; and contribute back to the society. TKP also taps on the unique profile of the students to cultivate the cross-cultural skills essential for them to thrive in a globalised world.
To this cause, TKP will work with our partners, including parents, alumni and the community, to enrich the learning experiences of the students.
Chung Cheng High School
Founded in 1939, Chung Cheng High School first began as an all-boys school at Kim Yan Road, admitting female students only after World War l.
In 2005, the school was awarded the “School Distinction Award” in recognition of the well-defined processes that the school put in place which led to sustained achievements in students’ outcomes in the 5 domains (moral, cognitive, physical, social & aesthetic).
The Can-Chaining Project put the school in the Guinness Book of Records for the World’s Longest Can-Chaining Project for charity in 2005.
The school was accorded the status of East Zone Centre of Excellence for Chinese (EZCOE(CL)) and awarded the Best Practice Award (Teaching & Learning) in 2005. The newly upgraded building “The Innosphere” which houses the EZCOE(CL) and all performing art CCAs was officially opened the following year.
2011 saw the inception of the school’s Talent Development Programme. The objective of the initiative was to nurture talents in the areas of Chinese language and culture, Music, Mathematics and Science. Additional resources were provided for students of the programme, thus enabling them to develop their potential in their areas of interest and talent. Besides that, in recognition of the school’s rich tradition and culture for the Arts, the school was selected by MOE to offer the Enhanced Music Programme from 2011.
The school’s Administration Building (Zhulin Building) and the Entrance Arch were both gazetted as National Monument. In addition, our alumnus Mr Lim Tze Peng (a distinguished calligrapher and artist and also a Cultural Medallion winner) donated almost a hundred valuable pieces of his works to his alma mater. These pieces have been housed in a “Lim Tze Peng Art Gallery” next to the Chung Cheng Lake, and they will serve to inspire all Chung Cheng students to greater artistic and aesthetical achievements. To foster an ambience of rich cultural setting, a Chung Cheng Cultural Corridor was also constructed. This further complements the existing cultural landscape of the school, which seeks to nurture the next generation of Chung Cheng students with humanistic concerns. On 10th July, the school held its 75th Anniversary Gala Dinner, which was attended by more than 1000 alumni. The Guest-of-Honour, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, also officiated at the ceremony to gazette the two buildings as National Monument, as well as the opening of the “Lim Tze Peng Art Gallery”. In line with this, the school also co-organised a public cultural forum with the National Heritage Board. Distinguished local and overseas scholars were invited to share on the cultural value of the Zhulin Building and the Entrance Arch, as well as the importance of monument preservation.
In the same year, the school was accorded five “Best Practices” by the MOE External Validation team for Teaching and Learning, Character and Citizenship Education, Student All-Round Development, Staff Well-Being and Development, as well as School Partnership. In addition, we also received MOES’s top honour for the school excellence journey — the “School Distinction Award” (SDA). The school was also conferred the status of a “Water Efficient Building” (Silver) by the Public Utilities Board, which affirms the school’s efforts in environmental conservation.
