Singapore Master Plan: New Growth Zones East or West ?

Background information about the Master Plan

The Draft Master Plan 2008 is the most important statutory plan used to determine land use and shape Singapore’s physical development in the next 10 to 15 years. This year’s Master Plan is expected to focus on growth areas, rather than widespread upgrade in densities. THE Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) will unveil the Draft Master Plan 2008 on Friday, 23 2008. The new Master Plan is expected to make changes in land use, increase plot ratios as well as lay the groundwork for a much larger population of 6.5 million, which could be reached in as short a span of time as 20 years.

Pick East or West?
I've been a "westerner" (live in the western part of Singapore), but friends who've moved from the west to the east will swear by it that the East is so much nearer to town.

I once thought of buying a property in Geylang. Freeholds there were always on discount. But I thought the better of it. Geylang is associated with the red light district on Singapore, not for family people like me.

Well, East or West? Any advice?
