A Brief History Of Ang Mo KIo
Ang Mo Kio is a quintessential Housing and Development Board (HDB) heartland with its mature neighborhoods, good hawker food, strong neighborly relationships and small businesses that have been operating since the early days of the town.
Originally, the town was predominantly farmland, secondary forest and swamps. It was marked as a forest reserve under the colonial government in a 1936 map. The earliest reference to this area is in an 1849 report written by J T Thomson, Government Surveyor, which mentioned that “Amokiah”, the name for Ang Mo Kio then, and it contain sandstone. Early maps of Singapore also refer to the area as “Amokiah”. By the 1900s, the area was referred to as Ang Mo Kio.
There are multiple theories proposed for the origins of the name Ang Mo Kio. One say that it is the Hokkien dialect for tomatoes. Others say that it refers to a bridge purportedly built by Thomson as “ang mo” is a Hokkien term for Caucasians, and “kio” means “bridge”. However, former villagers in the area, reported that tomatoes were never planted in the area and the name Ang Mo Kio was not used by locals as a place name.
A more plausible explanation was given by Douglas Hiorns, former General Manager of Bukit Sembawang Estates. According to Hiorns, there were two key tracks crossing Ang Mo Kio, an area with large expanses of swamps and tributaries of rivers running through it. As a result, bridges carrying the tracks over the waterways gained a local importance. The bridge carrying Cheng San Road over the tributary of Kallang River was made of concrete, a material commonly referred to as “ang mo he” or “Western ash” in Hokkien. In the north, a wooden bridge carried the road Jalan Hwi Yoh over the river Sungei Tongkang and was locally called “pang kio”, meaning “wooden bridge” in Hokkien.
As such, the area acquired the name “Ang Mo Kio”. Today, Ang Mo Kio is one of the most sought-after housing estates in Singapore by home-buyers and the modern town has its own stories to tell. Some examples include the one and only block of circular flats in Singapore by the Housing and Development Board, and town gardens where the original vegetation forms part of the landscape. And right beside this circular block of flat is where Amo Residence at Ang Mo Kio Rise is.
AMO RESIDENCE has a walking distance of about 400m Mayflower MRT (TE6), of approximately 6 mins walk.
Ang Mo Kio-Bishan is the neighbourhood of choice because of its central location. It is a mature estate carefully crafted over the years, to cater to people of all ages, professions and interest.
INSPIRING NEW LIVING
As a mature housing estate, Ang Mo Kio remains an attractive location for potential home owners because of its ease of transport, myriad of amenities and shopping facilities, and enviable proximity to recreation spaces and employment clusters.
Ang Mo Kio is also popular with young families who wish to live near their parents. Besides building new homes amongst the existing housing, additional facilities will be built and existing amenities upgraded to create a high-quality living environment tailored to the needs of residents.
While it is well served by two bus interchanges, two MRT stations, two expressways and a good road network, Ang Mo Kio will see further enhancement to public transport services and roads that will make travelling within the town and to other parts of Singapore even faster and more efficient. This include:
- The Cross Island Line, which will pass through Ang Mo Kio when it starts operations by 2030, will serve as an alternative east-west MRT route
- Addition of two new MRT stations (Lentor and Mayflower) on the Thomson Line. This allows for faster commute between the town and the city
- The North-South Expressway(NSE), expected to complete around 2027. This will shorten travel times between the city and Ang Mo Kio, as well as northern parts of Singapore
ECONOMY: MORE JOBS NEAR HOME
With its many commercial and industrial developments, Ang Mo Kio currently offers plenty of employment opportunities and allows residents to enjoy short commutes to work. More jobs will be created within existing industrial parks, with new developments such as:
- Redevelopment of existing industrial buildings at Tagore Industrial Park
- A new industrial complex at Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park 3
LEISURE: ABUNDANCE OF OUTDOOR SPACE

It will have entrances that connect directly to different residential blocks, Ang Mo Kio Integrated Transport Hub, AMK Hub and Ang Mo Kio Town Garden East.
Travel time between Pasir Ris and Ang Mo Kio is expected to be reduced to 25 minutes from the current one hour. With the new Cross Island Line station, commuters can also expect to save 70 minutes of travel time from Ang Mo Kio to Aviation Park, bringing it down to 35 minutes, according to LTA.
The North-South Corridor (NSC) will be a Transit Priority Corridor, featuring dedicated bus lanes, cycling trunk routes and pedestrian paths, to serve public bus commuters, active mobility users and pedestrians. Expected to complete in 2027, it will directly connect the Northern region and the city centre.
With dedicated and continuous bus lanes coupled with bus priority signals, bus commuters will be expected to save an average of 10 to 15 minutes of travel time.
Active mobility users and pedestrians will also benefit from NSC, through the cycling trunk routes and pedestrian paths. These will link with the Park Connector Network and local cycling paths within HDB towns along the entire corridor, enhancing connectivity for active mobility users and pedestrians.
