Not really a good idea to be above an eating house. Other than fumes, there are always people smoking.

River view feedback from Hougang cape view just for some info.
Areas like this are always prone to some infections from vectors that breeds on or around water lodged areas such as mosquitoes which are the chief source of malaria caused by the female anopheles mosquito.

For high level should be fine but just prep for some noise from the connector as noises tends to travel up.

I will share more on west sun facing soon.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Lift is just outside unit 54. If leave door open, can see ur unit. Service yard also expose to corridor on the left fyi.
Thank you and appreciate for your sharing. Actually I guess much as well but just wan to hear more views to ascertain it.

Eric, mind sharing if choosing unit 52, high floor, shouldn't have much issue with the following right??

1. smell from the eating house of Blk 171A ground unit of 68/66
2. mosquito breeding issues after rain and nearing reservoir (since picking high level)
3. Lesser/no exposure of service yard
4. No lift issue - when leaving the door open, people wont get to see my unit

I can see the staircase icon but cannot tell if it is nearer to unit 50 or 52 - But i guess should not have much issue since people usually wont take the stair (esp if is high level)

Kindly share you insight, thank you

Ya, I saw too. But 1 bus stop for 2500 units of residents seem too strain on the public transport. Plus dont know how many times we need to miss in order to hop onto the buses to get us to SK Mrt.

Look here and there, really cant think of any place govt can build more bus stop for residents that stayfar from blk that is near the bus-stop beneath the overhead bridge. Haiz

If no bus stop will be very inconvenient for us.
Things are not so bad .. if we walk a distance .. there will be lrt i think bakau or rumbia lrt

hmmm, I just tried it ytd using google map with my Bf and it is quite a distance to walk before you reach LRT. Also, with so many new residents and the LRT is so small, it will over strain on the LRT having us needing to miss a few rounds b4 we get to board it.

Previously, there is an express bus service number 591 that brings commuter to Shenton Way area in abt 20-25 mins but has since cease operation. Hopefully, SMRT or SBS can reinstate it back as it cut the transportation time greatly - the LRT-MRT + walking route takes about 45-50 mins to reach CBD area whereas the express bus service take only 20-25 min.

Hi, to answer your queries:

1. Is subjective but my recommendation is to stay away from eating house as far as possible. If hit the jackpot, u will get the smell from the outdoor exhaust which eating house has to equipped for each stall.
Moreover, noticed there's a super mart, it cater to joggers and cyclist as well as it just located along the park connector. Will generate crowds and noise and noise tends to travel up. To simplify, the highest you stay, the clearer you heard.

2. As long near river amenities, even 10th floor there's still risk. You just need to work on your household internally for preventive measures. As a matter of facts, Recently dead body found along the river too (3rd incidents up to date)

3. U r right.

4. Still can see your unit as the pillar outside your corridor flash with your kitchen. kitchen.

Personally, I will recommend unit 96.

Reason being, u get best of both world:

- Privacy for both living and service yard.
- Unit hidden in corner and away from public staircases.
- Good south facing to enjoy the wind breeze.
- If unit 78 tall enough, it will helps block west sun for unit 96 (master bed room. (Need to ensure unit 78 block high enough to help you block the west sun ) Note: You will get diagonal morning sun but not an issue. We need to wake up every morning anyway for work.

Just in case for unit 94, Is good too but master bed room will face the sharp edge from unit 338 unless no one mind to face a sharp edge everyday. Is just like every day u r been ''AXE'' on the head while u r on the bed or sleeping through the night.

Hope the above helps in your unit selection.
