Woods Square @ Woodlands
Woodlands Square development is an integrated office development with retail, F&B and childcare centre, it features two office towers and two Small Office Loft Office (SOLO) blocks. Wood Square is envisioned by URA to spearhead the transformation of the Woodlands Regional Centre into a key commercial cluster, that will link to the Singapore CBD via the upcoming Thomson MRT Line, and act as the northern gateway to Malaysia via the future cross-border rail link.
Woods Square will be a mixed use project at Woodlands Central. It will comprise two 16-storey office towers that make up 90% of the development, retail space at the ground & basement levels, and direct connection to the Woodlands MRT station and Causeway Point.
The design of Woods Square will enhance Woodlands Square, with public open spaces that encourage interaction, and landscaped greenery. It is being developed by a consortium of 3 partners: Far East Civil Engineering (Pte) Limited, Tannery Holdings Pte Ltd and Sekisui House Ltd.
BE AT THE CENTRE OF WOODLANDS TRANSFORMATION
Take your place at the heart of Woodlands’ transformation, and position your business at its premier commercial address. Woods Square is strategically located at the centre of Woodlands, which is being further rejuvenated and developed under the URA’s Master Plan.
Being located along the green corridor, Woods Square engages with the surrounding greenery. It is envisioned that professionals work in a park-like setting, differentiating the experience of working here from that in most other office buildings.
THE POTENTIAL CAPITAL UPSIDE FOR STRATA-TITLED OFFICE SPACES
Over the longer term, as with any area that has a government-backed strategic plan to chart its development, Woodlands will – without a doubt – become a more attractive place to work. Healthy demand for office space in suburban areas – the occupancy rate in Jurong East hovered around 92-93%, while that of the office space in Singapore’s suburban areas averaged at 89%.

“Spirit of Green”: inspiration from the historical wooded nature of Woodlands. The design of Woods Square will take advantage of the residual interspersed green pockets around, and transform them into a green nucleus, extending the green connectivity into the development.
The Woods Square site plan will incorporate an open green network that brings a sense of porosity into the project. This creates a pattern of movement, one which is inclusive and harmonious, for a close-knit community.
