The Woodlands suburb of Marsiling presents the older living patterns of Singapore; it is a quieter and much denser estate, often offering a reasonable and larger alternative to other housing options, and houses a large number of elderly and heavy-duty industries.

Marsiling is a large estate compared to Woodlands, which extended from north of Woodlands Square to the Woodlands Checkpoint, bordering Malaysia.

A redevelopment plan of upgrading existing housing apartment blocks was introduced in late 1990s, and thereafter a surge in housing prices that come along with a refurbished elevator serving every storey of the apartment block; larger apartments per household (a new room was added at the rear of each apartment) and of course, modernising to meet the standards of the local housing environment. Marsiling is situated next to the Marsiling Industrial Estate; Marsiling has shown an increasing community of foreign expatriates in recent years.
