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.
I love CapeView, one of my jogging routes. This BTO is looking over the same river but layout wise it's not really similar. A similar layout will be NorthShore StraitsView.

The only drawback is the distance to the nearest MRT (Hougang).

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.
Stack 96 is decent, only problem is the HC in front of it, I'm not too concern about AFS but a HC is noisy. Stack 326 is similar but has a PG in front of it.

Those that prefer being nearer to LRT, stacks 34 and 52 are pretty decent.

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.

Hope the above helps in your unit selection.

Thank you for the explanation.

Perhaps allow me to share a little bit more why I am considering Blk 170B unit 54/52 then you share your views with me

Per goggle map, it take less than 1 min to walk to bus stop (Transport accessibility is very impt esp for such ulu estate and do not have personal transport) and ard 6 mins walk to Bakau LRT.

noted as well on the super mart but it is located right below blk 170A, hopefully it wont get too noisy for floor level like 14-16.

U have suggested unit 96/94 at blk 171B but it seem really far away from the existing bus stop, probably need to walk 5-6 mins to the bus stop and probably 10-12 mins to bakau LRT.

What your take on this? kindly share your views.

What your take on stack 52 exposure to the lift and staircase as well as near the eatery at 1st storey of blk 171 - stack 68, 66, 84, 82?.

Thank you.

What's your take on 170A stack 24&26? Do you think 26 will kena west sun? The windows are not facing west though, maybe not a big concern?

Likewise how about 171A stack 78&80? Will 80 take the west sun? Windows are not facing west as well.

Hi, thanks for sharing.

Hi be it 14 or 16 level, noise tends to travel upwards based on my encountered even above level 50.
If were me, I donít mind to walk further than to compromise the comfort of living. Take that few more steps walk as exercise isnít that sounds good too?

On the other hand, be it differences in walking distance to lrt, I suppose most agreed and view that plot / cluster as ulu hence is minimal differences.

Say to say no. Busstop already there along the main road. Doubts will have addtional stop except increase the buses frequency to meet the demands. LRT, based on master plan, not going to have any except the existing one. Will have new mrt Line but still a distance away this project.

I used to stay above level 40 apartment and trust me pretty Noisy when noise travel up. Kids noise, road noise , etc

Do update if appointments are out already.
Haha i check everyday but it's not out

Bukit Batok applicants are preparing their documents alr.
But seems like the earliest appointment is in Nov/Dec.
And none in October?

Does this mean that our appointments will start even later?


BB's Flat summary and OCS pricing/sample is out too.
Can go and take a look at HDB Launch page for reference.

HDB staff return my call for previous enquiry and I made used of this opportunity to ask roughly when will be our selection. Her reply is looking at current situation where ROF and Bukit Batok is doing their selection now, ours likely to commence on Nov'17.

It may be a good news for others who want to try BTO for Nov as the selection start date is push back to Nov'17/Dec'17.

Thank you.
My only concern for stack 52 will be the eatery, should be ok for high floors. I wouldn't be too bothered by being near to the lift given all the advantages of this stack.

Like what I pointed out earlier, if stack 52 is a concern then stack 34 might work out better. Having a PP in front and not so private service yard are the only problems.

If you don't mind walking slightly further, stack 96 (as pointed out earlier) will also be good (except for the HC).
