Waterway Woodcress is a waterfront premium BTO located at the junction of Edgedale Plains and Punggol Drive and is situated along My Waterway@Punggol. It is literally a few steps away from the Oasis LRT Station, which makes this a very convenient development. Still in line with the eco-theme, the word Woodcress is coined from an aquatic plant called watercress and in reference to the building’s wood-like colours.
Waterway Woodcress is comprised of 7 residential blocks that varies from as low as 8 storeys to as high as 18 storeys tall. With 694 units in total, homeowners have a choice of 3, 4 and 5-room premium flats.
A typical 3-room unit with a size of around 68 sqm is pegged at around $205,000-$239,000 while a 4-room unit with a size of about 93 sqm can go between $304,000-$379,000. A premium 5-room flat with a size of about 113 sqm can fetch for $375,000-$466,000.

The development is purposely designed at varying heights so the view outward the waterway is maximized. And with its earth tone facades, Waterway Woodcress is simply the perfect place for a riverside living.
At the center of it lies a lush landscaped deck with lots of greenery that creates a tranquil environment for residents. It also provides both the young and the elderly a spot for relaxation and activity. As in any HDB, a playground is in place for the children to play at while a fitness station is also available for the adults to do their workouts.
For a less physical recreation, residents may take advantage of the rest shelters for relaxing or by merely enjoying observing life as it goes by. A stunning view of the waterway is made possible by two viewing decks along the waterfront. Residents may also use the precinct pavillions for their social gatherings and parties.
Since the carpark is located below the landscaped deck, residents get guaranteed direct and sheltered access to their house block. Mini-mart, shops and childcare centre are also available within the development. Plus, a future commercial and residential development, which will provide more amenities, is just right next to Waterway Woodcress.
