The parcel bordered by Bedok North Road will comprise 470 units of 3-room, 4-room and 5-room units, while the parcel accessible via Chai Chee Lane will house the remaining 760 units, with a mix of units, including Community Care Apartments.

A total of 730 new units will be added in Bishan, comprising a mix of 3-room and 4-room. The BTO project will be sited between Sin Ming Road and Marymount Road, with a new access road planned to connect the two for easier access.

This location is within proximity of several condominium and private properties, which could place upwards pressure on home selling prices. The popular Bishan town centre is also within reach, offering numerous sought after amenities such as a swimming pool and a library.

Public transport options include the Upper Thomson MRT station, Marymount MRT station and Bishan MRT station and bus interchange. When driving, there’s Marymount Road and Thomson Road for convenient access.

Located right in front of Alexandra Canal, and bordered by Alexandra Road, the next Bukit Merah BTO launch will offer 900 new units for homeseekers. The flat types here are on the smaller end of the scale though, as only 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room units will be provided.

This BTO project is well-located in the quaint Redhill neighbourhood, while providing convenient access to buzzy Tiong Bahru that is just one MRT stop away. There are also several schools to pick from, as well as sporting and recreational facilities within reach.

Over in Bukit Panjang, 330 new units have been proposed for the December HDB BTO launch. Comprising a mix of 2-room Flexi and 4-room flats, the new apartments will be located between Petir Road and Cashew Road, right beside Petir Park.

The nearest public transport node is Petir LRT station, which is just one station away from Bukit Panjang LRT station, where you can transfer over to Bukit Panjang MRT station to continue your journey into the city.

Bukit Panjang LRT also happens to be where the town centre is, offering up two shopping malls, a public library and a bus interchange. Further up is a sports complex and swimming pool, as well as catchment facility Pang Sua Pond, ideal for evening waterside strolls.

Jurong West BTO

Souce: HDB

Nestled between Jurong West Street 42 and the Pan-Island Expressway, 710 new units will be added to Jurong West for the December HDB BTO launch. There is a good mix of apartment types offered here, ranging from 2-room Flexi to 3-, 4-, and 5-room options.

One notable feature about this BTO project is the high number of schools nearby, providing families with school-going children significantly more choices.

Currently, Lakeside MRT station acts as the primary public transport option, although the completion of new MRT stations on the Jurong Region MRT Line (JRL) should bring increased convenience.

Queenstown BTO

A total of 800 new units have been proposed for the upcoming HDB BTO launch for Queenstown, split across two unit types: 3-room and 4-room flats.

The best feature of this BTO project is how it has Dover MRT station quite literally at its doorstep – a fact residents will appreciate considering the general lack of amenities nearby.

Thankfully, essential neighbourhood amenities are just one MRT stop away. The Bouna Vista MRT station (also an interchange station between the green East-West Line and the orange Circle Line) offers convenient access to Star Vista shopping mall, while the eclectic Holland Village enclave – where you’ll find dining, shopping and entertainment options – is one more stop further.

What is nearby though, is plenty of greenery and waterfront views, thanks to the Ulu Pandan Canal that borders the BTO project.

If you don’t mind living all the way in the north of Singapore, the upcoming Woodlands BTO launch is well worth checking out. Split over two projects – one with a total of 380 new 3-room and 4-room units, and the other with 840 2-room Flexi, 3-, 4- and 5-room flats – the new HDB units will be sited next to Woodlands MRT station (and unofficial town centre).

The location puts residents in close proximity to Causeway Point shopping mall and Woodlands Civic Centre which houses a public library. In the other direction we have a sports complex and swimming pool, and neighbourhood shopping courtesy of Marsiling Mall.

Another plus point is the high number of schools nearby, and ample green spaces and parks for exercise and leisure.
