There will be a total of 5,714 units offered for sale – 4,126 new BTO flats, and a further 1,588 Sale of Balance (SBF) units. The latter is, of course, BTO units left over from previous sale exercises, and have now been consolidated under this latest sale exercise. 

As for the 4,126 BTO units, they will be spread over seven projects in six locations. 

More than 80% of BTO flats, which are those located in Bedok, Hougang, Punggol, and Woodlands, will have a waiting time of less than three and half years.

This location promises to be rather tranquil, with lots of greenery and waterfront spaces courtesy of the nearby Bedok Reservoir, making for an appealing choice for nature lovers. Besides that, it's also within walking distance to the Bedok Reservoir MRT station. 

But in case you’re worried about a lack of amenities, know that there are three neighbourhood centres and two community centres within easy reach – together they should satisfy most daily needs.

Amenities

Community parks and park connectors, places of worship, nursing home, neighbourhood centres, community clubs

Schools

Paya Lebar Methodists Girls’ Primary and Secondary School, Xinghua Primary School, Yuying Secondary School,  

Tanjong Tree Residences @ Hougang BTO is one of the smaller ones in the batch, clocking in at just 360 new units, spread across 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room flat types. 

While there are two MRT stations within proximity – Bartley MRT and Serangoon MRT – it is likely that residents will also need to visit Kovan MRT Station (not pictured), given that the majority of amenities and town facilities are located there. 

This is partly because this BTO project will be located in a relatively undeveloped part of Hougang Town, so neighbourhood facilities will be a little lacking. If that bothers you, it’s recommended to find out more information on planned or upcoming amenities – if any – before applying.

While the BTO’s location is a little secluded, there is a wonderful selection of amenities and neighbourhood facilities within easy reach; most are clustered around the Punggol MRT Station, which is easily accessible via the LRT network that serves the neighbourhood.

Head over there and you’ll find suburban shopping mall Waterway Point, as well as the Punggol Bus Interchange. Other places of interest include Marina Country Club, Punggol Promenade and My Waterway @ Punggol, offering family-friendly waterfront fun. There are also several notable amenities being proposed or under construction, including a sports centre, a health and medical centre, and an economic hub in Punggol Digital District.

Tanglin Halt Courtyard

Location

Between Commonwealth Drive and Tanglin Halt Road

Total units

251

Prices (excluding grants)

2-room Flexi (Type 1): S$235,000 to S$278,000

Q3 2029

Nearest MRT stations

Commonwealth MRT Station

Amenities

Polyclinic and community wellness centre, Queenstown community centre, Queenstown Swimming Complex and Stadium, public library, park connectors, neighbourhood centre

Schools

New Town Primary School, Queensway Secondary School, Rainbow Centre Margaret Drive, Queenstown Primary School

You’d think old towns like Queenstown would be fully saturated by now, but somehow HDB still finds a way to keep adding new BTO units. That’s good news for those of us who want to enjoy the heritage town without paying through the nose on the resale market. 

In any case, Tanglin Halt Courtyard will comprise 251 units of 2-room Flexi and 4-room flats. They will be situated between Commonwealth Drive and Tanglin Halt Road, with a neighbourhood centre right beside. 

Amenities in the vicinity include a polyclinic and community wellness centre, a public library and community green spaces, including the Alexandra Canal Linear Park. Sports and fitness enthusiasts can visit Queenstown Swimming Complex and Stadium, while those in pursuit of quieter recreation activities may seek out the public library, or venture north towards Ridout Tea Garden. 

One drawback is that there aren’t as many choices when it comes to schools, with only a handful within close proximity. It's also offered under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model, which comes with stricter requirements such as a 1-year minimum occupation period (MOP) and 8% subsidy clawback.

If you don’t mind residing all the way up in the North, the upcoming Woodgrove Edge BTO launch should be cause for excitement. That’s because of the prime location chosen for the BTO project – next to the Woodgrove Estate, famous for its charming townhouses and true-to-tradition Halloween celebrations every year. Plus, it's also one of the five BTO projects with a waiting time of less than three and half years. 

Another plus point: The location also has three MRT stations nearby, along with several neighbourhood facilities and town amenities that make for convenient and vibrant living. 

Also, families will enjoy the high number of schools of all levels within proximity, while the availability of ample green spaces and park connectors – including Admiralty Park and Woodlands Waterfront – makes the BTO even more attractive. 

And if you’re a regular visitor to JB, you can look forward to a shorter and more convenient drive to get to your favourite weekend destination.
