District 25 is an important district in Singapore as it offers a direct link to Malaysia through the causeway. Scores of tourists and locals flock to the bus interchanges in the area for quick trips and weekend getaways to the neighbouring country. Woodlands located in District 25 was named after the rubber plantations that stood here in the early days. The Kranji War Memorial located here holds historic significance as it marks the resting place of Singaporean soldiers who lost their lives defending the land. Woodlands is considered a major residential hub of the city state with several prominent HDB apartments and condominiums. Admiralty on the other hand is primarily designated towards industrial use. The wide range of amenities scattered across Woodlands and Admiralty including the Woodlands Regional Library, Causeway Point, the Woodlands Stadium and Woodlands Swimming Complex ensures a good quality of life for residents. The reputed schools within District 25 like Republic Polytechnic, the Singapore Sports School and Innova Junior College facilitate the education of those in the region. Earmarked as a new growth area in Singapore, Woodlands is set to witness rapid developments going forward. A host of commercial and mixed use projects have been conceptualised in the region, making it attractive for investors.
