A bumper crop of eight new projects, spread over seven locations, have been announced for the HDB BTO December 2023 launch. Here are all the key details you need to know.

The HDB BTO launch in December 2023 will encompass 6,057 flats across eight projects. 

Spread over seven locations – Bedok, Bishan, Bukit Merah, Bukit Panjang, Jurong West, Queenstown and Woodlands – this bumper crop of new flats should help alleviate pent-up demand built up over construction delays experienced during the pandemic. In fact, four of the projects have a waiting time of four years or less.

The upcoming launch will feature an array of different flat types, ranging from 2-room Flexi to 3-room, 4-room and 5-room unit types. Additionally, a tranche of Community Care Apartments will also be released in Bedok. 

Here are all the details about the launch.

The Chai Chee Green BTO project in Bedok comprises seven residential blocks of 15 storeys and two multi-storey car park (MSCP) blocks. It has 1,234 units of 3-room, 3-room, 4-room and 5-room flats as well as Community Care Apartments. 

Chai Chee Green BTO will also feature eco-friendly features such as separate chutes for recyclable waste, regnerative lifts to reduce energy consumption, bicycle stands, parking spaces for electric vehicles, and more. It will also have smart solutions for smart home solutions and smart lighting in common areas to reduce energy consumption. 

The nearest MRT is Bedok North MRT station, which lies to the northwest, over the Pan-Island Expressway. Another option – located in the southeast – is Bedok MRT Station (not shown) and Bedok Bus Interchange; the unofficial town hub will probably end up being the preferred choice of public transport. 

There are also smaller neighbourhood centres located within the vicinity for added convenience.

Schools

Ai Tong School, Catholic High School,  Eunola Junior College, Raffles Institution (JC), Raffles Institution (Sec), Whitley Secondary School

The Sin Ming Residences BTO in Bishan will see 732 new units of 3-room and 4-room flats added to Sin Ming Road, off Marymount Road. This location is near to three MRT stations – Upper Thomson, Marymount, and the Bishan interchange – although none of them offers doorstep access. 

What’s interesting is the high number of private developments in the vicinity, which may grant a halo effect in terms of valuations, but only time will tell. 

Perhaps the main draw here is the lively Bishan transport which features shopping, sporting and leisure options via Junction 8 shopping mall and the nearby sports and swimming complex.

A rectangular plot sandwiched between the Alexandra Canal and Alexandra Road has been earmarked for the Alexandra Peaks BTO project that would see the addition of 904 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room flats. 

Thanks to its superb location, accessibility, and proximity to MRT stations, the Alexandra Peaks BTO will likely be categorised as a Prime Location Housing (PLH) flat.  

With Delta Sports Complex just across the road, fitness freaks will find easy options for sports and swimming. There are also many schools in the area for families with school-going children, including ASPN (Tanglin School), Alexandra Primary School, Bukit Merah Secondary School, Crescent Girls’ School, Gan Eng Seng School, and Gan Eng Seng Primary School. 

The nearest MRT station is Redhill MRT station, and the neighbourhood centre nearby should prove a convenient source of amenities and services. Another advantage of this location is its proximity to the city centre, while a number of private developments nearby confer a gentrifying effect on the historic neighbourhood.

If you’ve always wanted to make the LRT part of your daily commute, the Petir Park Edge BTO project has got you covered. 

Not only is it sited next to the Petir LRT station, it is also just one stop away from the main Bukit Panjang transport hub, where you’ll find plenty of amenities including two shopping malls and a sports and swimming complex. 

Nature lovers will appreciate that this BTO project sits next to Petir Park, with the 332 new units of 2-room Flexi and 4-room fiats enjoying convenient access to multiple schools in the neighbourhood – three of which are within walking distance.

Over at Jurong West, a new tranche of 716 units will be added, occupying a parcel of land between the Jurong Canal and Jurong West Street 42. Available flat types include 2-room Flex, 3-room, 4-room and 5-room configurations, catering to a wide range of applicants. 

While not the most conveniently located transport wise – the nearest MRT station is Lakeside MRT, which lies several streets to the south – the location is nonetheless a lively one, with several recreational and neighbourhood amenities close by. There are also a high number of schools in the vicinity, which should serve the needs of school-going families well.

Also, there is a planned MRT station on the new Jurong Region Line, which should make for a more convenient transport option once ready.

Like the Bukit Merah BTO, the Ulu Pandan Vista BTO in Queenstown will likely be a PLH project due to its prime location and proximity to the city.

Apart from its prime neighbourhood status, there are two main draws to this Queenstown BTO project. One, the Dover MRT station is right at the doorstep, which offers unparalleled convenience to public transport users. 

Two, it is just a couple of stops away from Buona Vista and Holland Village MRT stations, where a good variety of dining, shopping, entertainment and recreational options may be found. Other points in its favour include the nearby schools, green spaces, and community facilities.

You can choose from 890 units of 3-room and 4-room flats for this BTO project.

While two BTO projects have been listed for Woodlands, both are basically at the same location, just separated by a single street; see the two screenshots above. 

In any case, both projects are well situated, with easy access to the Woodlands integrated hub comprising Woodlands MRT station and bus interchange, Causeway Point mall and Woodlands Civic Centre. In the other direction is a sports and swimming complex, along with neighbourhood shopping centre Marsiling Mall. 

Adding further convenience and variety are a variety of schools, community clubs, green spaces and park connectors. Also, the Causeway is close by if you fancy a jaunt into Johor Bahru.
