anyone have any idea on this?
you parents are bound to purchase 4km radius from your house within the first 5 years upon collection of keys of your unit.
thus change name to your sister should be fine, you may double check with HDB

If I'm not wrong first timers generally have a better chance as most of the units are allocated for the first timers.

As a person who live in Jurong West all these while, for 22 years,

- 17/18 storeys are the highest for any building in Jurong West, apart from the ones at Boon Lay Place, so, you can theoretically get a bird's eye view of the entire Jurong West from the highest storey of the Jurong West BTO apartments.

- The Jurong West Street 93 development (Jurong West Jewel) exceeded my expectations. The design is more aligned to the Punggol HDB flats, or Bukit Batok West flats, than any flats in Jurong West.

- I am not comfortable with the idea of having the former Jurong Fire Station training tower being reused as part of the Boon Lay BTO development. If they want to rejuvenate Boon Lay, they should rejuvenate completely, and not retain the training tower which doesn't really have any historical value; if I'm not wrong, it's not gazette as a historical monument, so why are they conserving it?

- anyway, the Boon Lay BTO colour scheme seems to purposely resemble the former Jurong Fire Station and former Boon Lay Secondary School, that used to occupy the land that the Boon Lay BTO will be developed on.

Considering most lands earmarked for residential development in Jurong West are already developed, it is very rare to have BTO developments in Jurong West.

So, if you happen to work in Jurong or Tuas area, or want a new flat in Jurong West, this is a rare opportunity to do so.

To add on, I would strongly advise those "non westerner" interested applicants to go to the site to take a look yourself with the surrounding.

The blocks featured in the poster are all facing the industrial estate which is just directly opposite, behind the mrt tracks.

So the bird eye view is actually industrial view, chimneys, maybe can also see Jurong island. I'm not too sure about the chocolate smell from nearby factory although someone here mentioned it earlier on. It is also beside mrt tracks and behind RV school which one may takes some time to get used to regarding the mrt noise and perhaps, school bell noise?

Oh and the blocks beside Jln Boon Lay, take note it is a major road, mostly jammed in mornings.. Also a common sight of heavy vehicles, trucks along the road leading to industrial estate. Morning air quality not too ideal.

But the best part of it, it is near Jurong Point mall and mrt stn! Yooohooo

Despite the steep prices for kallang/whampoa, the application rate is still going strong.
Looks like a lot of singaporeans very rich HAHAHA
Some people might not be serious buyers. The price is very much like clementi 5 room sbf whereby many ppl who got the q no. Withdraw before the selection dates.
