Check out the two estates that will be available for the next launch.

August 2017 – Bukit Batok

Bukit Batok has been earmarked as one of two towns to receive new HDB flats, to be released for sale to the public come August 2017.

A total of 1,410 new flats are expected to be made available, with flat types running the gamut from 2-room flexi all the way up to 5-room apartments.

 

About The Flats

The offered batch of 1,410 flats will occupy two new locations within Bukit Batok.

A proposed cluster of approximately 270 flats, consisting of 2 room Flexi and 3 room units, will be sited within walking distance to several amenities. This includes West Mall, Bukit Batok West Shopping Centre, St Luke’s Hospital, several schools, as well as Bukit Batok MRT.

With its central location, these units are expected to be highly sought after, although their smaller size will mean larger families may be excluded.

About the Flats

It seems like Singaporeans planning to buy a flat here should be prepared to invest in a good pair of walking shoes. Or bikeshare credits. The nearest amenities look to be at least a good walk away. Even the nearest shopping mall, Rivervale Plaza, appears to be exhaustingly far, but at least you’ll have the LRT to help you out.

However, residents of this BTO flats can look forward to picturesque views outside their windows, thanks to the estate’s ‘riverfront’ location.  Amenities in the area include green connectors, so you’ll have pretty surroundings to accompany you as you cycle back and forth from the supermarket.
