In the National Day Rally speech, Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong unveiled numerous exciting projects for the coming years in line with the vision that Singapore is a city of possibilities. 

One of them is the Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW) which stretches from Gardens by the Bay East, all the way to Pasir Panjang Terminal. With 2,000 hectares of land, it will be six times the size of Marina Bay or about twice the size of Punggol. The GSW is poised to transform into a mega mixed development zone, allowing people to embrace work, live and play to the fullest. 

 Sentosa and Pulau Brani will leverage on the waterfront location to create the next generation entertainment and recreational facilities for the region. Also, a new business cluster will emerge at this highly sought-after city fringe location where multinationals the likes of Google, Unilever and Cisco currently are.
