Most of us would have come across property analysts mentioning terms like Core Central Region (CCR), Rest of Central Region (RCR) and the Outside Central Region (OCR) in their report. But many of us may not be aware what does these terms mean and which district is located in which region in Singapore.
Singapore is divided in 28 Districts and these 28 districts are located in different regions. The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has divided Singapore into three main regions, namely Core Central Region (CCR), Rest of Central Region (RCR) and the Outside Central Region (OCR). The boundaries of these regions can be quite confusing and here’s a Singapore District Map that can make it clearer for us to understand.
This area, often described as the heart of Singapore, consists of three districts – 9, 10 and 11, plus the Downtown Core Planning Area and Sentosa. This region is where most of the luxury properties are located.

The Rest of Central Region, also known as the RCR, is just outside of the CCR and beside the Outside Central Region (OCR). The RCR is usually consider as city fringe, the properties here are usually mid-tier private residential properties, and is a very popular area due to its close proximity to the CBD.
