Watertown is Punggol’s first residential-cum-commercial development that harnesses the historical and natural beauty of Punggol Waterway - the first-ever man-made waterway in Singapore. It will be the first luxurious waterfront development in Singapore that seamlessly integrates residential, shopping mall, Waterway Point and the Punggol MRT and LRT Stations. Watertown is directly located above the Waterway Point with a 10-screen IMAX cinema and a host of popular shopping and entertainment options. A short drive will take you to the upcoming eco-friendly Seletar Mall (ready by Dec 2014). You can expect lush greenery and 6 floors of exciting retail shops in this unique triangular-shaped mall.
The Punggol Waterway - Singapore’s largest man-made waterway at 4.2km long is within walking distance from Watertown. The Punggol Waterway has won many awards and accolades in 2012. On 15 August 2012, the Punggol Waterway won the Global Superior Achievement Award, the highest honor awarded by the International Water Association (IWA), for the most outstanding project in all categories and this is also the first time an Asian country has clinched this award. On 23 October 2012, it won 2 awards - the FIABCI Singapore Property Award and the Institution of Engineer Singapore (IES) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award for being an engineering marvel. The waterway also won the gold award in the Project Built category at the 2012 International Awards for Liveable Communities ceremony, held at Al Ain, in Abu Dhabi on 26 November 2012. This latest honor, endorsed by the United Nations Environment Programme, recognizes best practices in the management of local environments.
