2021 is fast coming to an end but before the year runs out, another HDB BTO launch, scheduled for November, is coming your way.

This time, a grand total of 3,520 units have been announced, running the gamut from two-room Flexi, all the way up to five-room flats. 

Spread over seven projects, November’s tranche of BTO flats will be offered in four non-mature estates: Choa Chu Kang (60 units), Hougang (two projects, 300 and 390 units each), Jurong West (220 units) and Tengah (two projects, 1,000 and 1,120 units each), along with a singular development in the downtown mature estate of Kallang/Whampoa (420 units).

Which November 2021 BTO project should you keep an eye out for? 

Singles and elderly persons seeking two-room Flexi flats will be able to choose between four BTO projects – one in Choa Chu Kang, one in Kallang-Whampoa and two in Tengah. However, as the actual breakdown of units is as yet unknown, it’s difficult to say for sure which project will offer the most number of such units, and correspondingly, which estate you should shoot for to maximise your chances. 

However, of note is the Choa Chu Kang project, which is planned to be an integrated residential facility that will also incorporate several useful amenities, such as a food centre, polyclinic and healthcare amenities, as well as a community club. As such, this project is likely to attract a high number of elderly and senior citizen applicants. 

Families with school-going children should look towards the Kallang-Whampoa and Jurong West BTO projects, given their availability of suitable-sized flats and the abundance of primary and secondary schools in close vicinity. 

The Hougang BTO project is also expected to see several proposed new amenities, including a park, a health and medical centre, and a community club. Meanwhile, the Jurong West project offers easy access to a sports centre, community club and a mall. Just one MRT stop away is the Jurong Town Centre, where mega shopping mall Jurong Point may be found.

Offering the largest number of units this round are both Tengah BTO projects, which together will see over 2,000 new units added. These will take the form of two-room Flexi, three-room, four-room and five-room flats, allowing the greatest range of options in terms of flat type. 

However, the projects will be sited at a relatively less built-up sector of Bukit Batok. Hence, do expect lots of greenery and more natural surroundings. There are also several community gardens proposed around the new BTO blocks, ideal if you’re looking to exercise your green thumbs.
