At the very least, they are learning from their mistakes. Early Punggol you had to travel quite a bit just to get amnesties. In Canberra, you can go either way to get what you want, or you can just go Sheng Siong within the estate.

I don't know why need to keep building shopping malls, not as if the shops are already struggling to make profits. Just behind it is Sembawang Shopping Centre, further up is Sun Plaza and toward Yishun got mega NorthPoint City opening soon.
mall give more 'atas' feel..... so will be the rental... and the costs of their products...

Canberra is like a 1 x 1km town. You run from 1 end to the other is 5mins...., all within 1km radius from a mrt. Ghost town? Only short sighted people would think so.

Slumberra

Paging for Mr canberra.
Very long never drop by this thread. How is Slumberra estate these days? More residents as compared to 6 months ago?

If cheap

Can consider no choice
Cheap only if you ballot BTO before Canberra MRT Station news was announced by LTA.

The selling points of Canberra estate are:

1) Affordable
2) Canberra MRT Station
3) Canberra Plaza

Other than that nothing much except that going to Johor Bahru for groceries/shopping is very convenient if you can tolerate the jams.

Downside is if you work or need to travel to east (Changi Airport) or south (Sentosa) part of Singapore more travelling time will be required. Going to Orchard is pretty reasonable distance though.

Buy hey just be grateful that you have a roof over your head because you are spending very little to buy into a place with a MRT Station at your doorstep especially if you live within 300m to it. A premium privilege you have to pay in other parts of Singapore. Even the prices in Punggol/Sengkang are not cheap these days.

On the MRT Station side will be all private condos. Those folks that bought the new and future condos will have to pay a premium for staying near a MRT Station.
