Although Phase 2 and 3 will only be completed by mid-2017, there’s no reason why you should delay a visit to OTH, especially when there’s already a slew of exciting activities and services on offer.
Here’s a quick first glimpse at Phase 1 and what to expect when it fully opens:
Public Service Centre
You can now access various services from six government agencies: People’s Association, North East Community Development Council, Housing Development Board, Workforce Singapore, Ministry of Social and Family Development, and Active SG.
At the 24-hour Public Service Centre, you’ll have access to the e-Lobby and the prototype Citizen Connect Centre, where you can apply for financial assistance schemes, renew season parking, get help in job-matching and more. Customer service/help desks are also available to handle your queries.
24-hour hawker centre
Dine at the “socially conscious” 24-hour Kopitiam with 42 cooked food stalls, nearly 800 seats, and added features such as natural ventilation, family-friendly seating, child-friendly toilets and built-in tray-return facilities at accessible locations.
Additionally, to ensure affordable meals for everyone, stallholders selling local food are required to sell two items at a maximum price of $2.80 per item.
Lastly, to facilitate faster turnaround during peak periods, OTH Kopitiam will also have a self-cash payment machine called iCashBox.
Indoor facilities at the HomeTeam NS Clubhouse include Laser Quest, an exclusive members lounge, function rooms and the first-ever Clip ‘N Climb theme park.
Featuring an automatic belay system and 19 colourful climbing challenges with different difficulties, Clip ‘N Climb provides a safe and fun environment for climbers of all ages and skill.
Phase 2 (March 2017)
Phase 2 will see the opening of a 30-lane bowling centre, a karaoke facility and a 24-hr gym.
Phase 3 (June 2017)
Rounding out OTH will be a 5,000-seat stadium, a 400-seat performance arts theatre, a regional library, a sports and recreation park, an eco-community garden, an all-inclusive kids’ playground and six rooftop swimming pools.
