Varying articles have been published throughout 2018, which explain the key aspects and features of the project. For example, the article published at, titled, “Punggol Digital District: Singapore’s first tech-driven enterprise district”, Jan 22, 2018, states: “The Punggol Digital District (PDD), a new 50-hectare development in Punggol North, is set to become Singapore’s first Enterprise District driven by technology and innovation.”

The Straits Times from Jan 22, 2018, states that: “Punggol Digital District is a pilot project for what is being called an enterprise district”. “The area will also be car-lite. That leaves the streets for pedestrians, cyclists, and users of personal mobility devices”.

Another article from titled: “The Future is Yours to Create at Punggol Digital District” Jan 21 2018, states: “Punggol Digital District will not only be about technology and infrastructure but an inclusive and green district for the community. It will be seamlessly integrated with the surrounding residential areas and include green links to the waterfront. This includes a Campus Boulevard at the heart of the District that connects people to key developments, amenities, and green and blue spaces such as the waterfront and Coney Island.”

“Around 28,000 new jobs will be created due to the opening of the new District, and these new jobs will mostly be related to cyber-security, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and the internet. The business park, built by industrial-estate developer JTC which will be situated beside SIT, will begin its construction works in 2019. JTC is the master developer for the business park.”
