Located in the heartlands of Bukit Panjang, Bangkit is a bustling neighbourhood and home to residents from all walks of life, from first-time homebuyers and young professionals to retirees.
At the heart of this estate is the Bangkit Neighbourhood Centre and surrounding market street, which has over 60 stores and services operating across five retail blocks since 1989.
Despite the wear and tear the area has endured over the years, it remains the primary destination for residents to purchase their daily necessities and mingle with one another.
In 2014, 19 blocks along Bukit Panjang Ring Road and Bangkit Road were selected under the Ministry of National Development's Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP) for revitalisation.
The objective of the revitalisation is to transfrom this epicentre and market street into a vibrant art and shopping area. It aims to inject new life into the place, and turn in into a pleasant space for leisure and community bonding.
Besides enhancing the look of the area, structural improvements such as installing anti-slip tiles and a ventilated canopy, have been made to enhance residents' shopping experiences and provide barrier-free access for the elderly and disabled.
