February 2023 BTO exercise sees 4,428 flats launched for sale
In Jurong West, HDB is releasing two non commercial blocks of 18 storeys, which are going to house 271 units of 3- and four-room condos. The area lies along Jurong West Street 93. Rates start from $187,000 for a three-room flat and from $288,000 for a four-room one.
Consultants assume Farrer Park Fields to find healthy request offered its distance to town and also two MRT stations– Farrer Park and Little India, the latter of which is an interchange for the Downtown and North-East Lines. “We can anticipate strong competitiveness for Farrer Park Fields, specifically given that BTO properties in the Kallang and also Whampoa proximity often tend to be very debated when near an MRT terminal,” says Mohan Sandrasegeran, One Global Group’s top expert for research and content creation.
HDB has introduced 4,428 flats for sale under the February 2023 Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise. The apartments are spread throughout 5 locations over four neighborhoods– Queenstown, Kallang and also Whampoa, Jurong West as well as Tengah. This is the very first BTO exercise since the Funds announcement, where procedures targeted at assisting first-time buyers were announced, including greater CPF housing grants for those wanting to buy a resale flat.
Under the February 2023 BTO exercise, two of the 5 locations have actually been assigned Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) properties. The first – Ulu Pandan Glades – stands around Ghim Moh Link and Commonwealth Avenue West in Queenstown, near the Dover MRT Station. It is going to have 732 units comprising 3- also four-room apartments. Suggestive rates begin with $372,000 for a three-room apartment $541,000 for a four-room flat, excluding grants.
On the other hand, the Jurong West site is expected to benefit from its venue near Pioneer MRT Station. Nevertheless, with just 271 flats, securing a flat through the balloting procedure might be challenging, says One Global Group’s Sandrasegeran.
The site in Tengah may amass interest complying with the news of ACS Primary’s transfer to Tengah in 2030. “This might lead to more applicants trying this batch of apartments, although we do not anticipate a big spike in numbers,” states Sun.
Sun includes that some newbie customers might wait up until the August BTO exercise, which is likely when the authorities will certainly permit new family members to get an added ballot for their BTO applications.
The remaining site remains in the Brickland area of Tengah estate, bounded by Brickland Road and Tengah Blvd. With 1,641 units throughout 12 non commercial blocks, it is the biggest site under the February 2023 BTO exercise and the just one with five-room apartments. Some other unit kinds are two-room flexi, 3- and four-room apartments. Costs begin with $97,000 for a two-room flexi flat, from $190,000 for a three-room flat, $291,000 for a four-room flat including $401,000 for a five-room flat.
Christine Sun, top vice president of research and analytics at OrangeTee & Tie, thinks this might draw away some BTO demand to the resale market. “Since more aids are provided, we might assume more suited customers to buy at well-known locations such as developed estates, or they might get slightly bigger flats,” she states.
The second PLH venture is in Kallang as well as Whampoa, on a location bounded by Race Course Road, Hampshire Road and Farrer Park Road. The project– Farrer Park Fields– are going to have 7 24-storey blocks housing 1,274 units of two-room flexi, three-room and four– room flats. Suggestive prices begin with $185,000 for a two-room flexi flat, $356,000 for a three-room flat, and also $484,000 for a four-room flat.
Concerning the non-PLH undertakings, OrangeTee & Tie’s Sun expects the Jalan Rajah site– though not near to an MRT station– to still draw in solid demand provided its site near Toa Payoh Central, which has adequate features.
Lee Sze Teck, Huttons Asia’s senior research executive, adds that surrounding amenities, consisting of Farrer Park Primary School, the upcoming mall Piccadilly Galleria, Tekka Market as well as City Square Mall, better increase the allure of the project. Lee includes that the other PLH property in Queenstown, Ulu Pandan Glades, is close to one more PLH plan, Dover Forest, launched last November. “The costs for apartments in Ulu Pandan Glades resemble the earlier release.”
Amongst the remaining three BTO locations, one more is in Kallang, Whampoa, along Jalan Rajah. It has 510 3- and also four-room flats in 2 40-storey blocks. Costs begin with $326,000 for a three-room flat and from $459,000 for a four-room flat.
