Our planet is a home to numerous lush landscapes that often leave us in awe. Hillview is one such beauty that lies in Butik Batok, present in the Western region of Singapore. Soothing greenery meets your eyes in every direction. Hillview is enveloped by Bukit Gombak, Bukit Batok Nature Park and Bukit Timah nature reserve. The eastern domain is more attractive because of the presence of Dairy farm, Hindhede, Chestnut and the Rifle range. The development is near to Jalan Remaja Tuan Sing Holdings Condo.
Industrial Past for Hillview Avenue
For nearly four decades since 1940’s, Hillview had been an industrial area with facilities including: castrol company, Carbide, Cycle and Carriage demler plant (built in 1965) and old ford motor company which, though built in 1941, still remains whereas all other factories moved out to new places.
Transport services were provided by KTM Malayan Railway that connected Tanjong Pagar station and Malaysia through Hillview Avenue. Nearby, there are two support railway bridges that are of utmost importance. On 24th May 2010, a bilateral agreement was signed between Malaysia and Singapore, which rendered the railway land back to Singapore. Authorities intend to transform this land into a railway corridor. Several ideas have been floating up including, to preserve it as parks and community centres or to turn it into a highway for cyclists with direct access into central business district.
Hillview Avenue Private Residential Estate
In 1951, Princess Elizabeth estate was built along Hillview Avenues’ Elizabeth Drive in the memory of the Royal wedding. HDB (Housing Development Board) established public housing around 1979 at the northern side of Hillview. It included a wet market, community centre, a hawking centre and some shops. In 1999 however, on the signal of the government, the HDB estate was to be relocated to Butik Gombak. By the end of 2005 the relocation was completed and the estate was razed down.Today, Hillview is one of the most opulent residential areas of Singapore.
