what about those that's not near to the MRT? like 121x at canberra crescent.
Blk 121X is Eastbank. 700m walk to Canberra MRT Station so still not so bad.

Close proximity to MRT Station is a major consideration for those not driving. Buyers will pay a higher premium for staying at MRT Station's doorstep especially units facing away from train tracks.

I went to my friend's housewarming just beside sembawang CC.

Terrible place, super ulu, no amenities, dusty and body due to construction, only one bus service there..

He used to stay at amk near amk hub. It was a drastic change to lack amenities and convenience..
at least yishun only have siao langs problem. slumberra is like the dumpster next to Yishun.

Should be at least $350k.
Hahahahahha

Old Canberra 5-room near SBW Mrt selling for $350k leh.

New Canberra 5-room near Mrt should be around $420k.

Realistically 3-room should be $250k region.

If rely on public transportation only have bus service so indeed quite inconvenient for now.

Canberra MRT Station will be a game changer. Canberra's BTO price before and after LTA's announcement have significant difference.



As I have mentioned previously this is the early mover advantage.

Resale price easily double after MOP but only for those estates within 500m to MRT Station. Eastlink I w/ Canberra Plaza (Neighbourhood Centre) will huat the most!

In Singapore it is not easy to buy a BTO flat at MRT Station doorstep. Once sell very hard to get such a bargain in one's lifetime. 10 stops to Orchard MRT Station (direct).
Actually not much diff la. BTO to SBF price difference is only $6k.

And it took BTO, SBF 1, SBF 2 and ROF to clear the initial batch of Canberra units.

When u say chicken do u mean prostitute?
No, as in will be packed and squeezed tightly together. Try seeing how those chickens are reared in chicken factories, Punggol is no different from them.

Why??????,?
Coz that's how new estates are being designed. Sengkang, Punggol, Cranberra, etc. See the layout at HDB, you see rows and rows of residential flats packed tightly together. Nowadays the goal is to squeeze as much as possible into those "chicken factory" areas.

Yishun still packing la..

Once yishun is filled to the brim, it will move to canberra and sembawang.

Literally every vacant land now in yishun is filled with btos...

It will take a while before they have push further up north.
They will build housing all the way to Sembawang beach, I believe.

It is a matter of time Slumpang (Simpang) forested area will be cleared for development.

Once Simpang built up, hope Gahmen commission an LRT network along Ave 8 all the way to Seletar. Or a new Northern Tip MRT line linking Sembawang-Punggol-Pasir Ris also can.
