I applied for Canberra but did not get a queue number... was thinking to either wait to see if there is sbf left but honestly I doubt there will be any left Now I am thinking of the Seng Kang Feb 19 BTO but am not sure if I should cos have not been there much... asked my parents for advise and they say that I should go ahead and try as the area is near Jalan Kayu and Jalan Kayu is gonna turn into the second Holland Village soon🤔 what do you all think?

If taking LRT is not an issue for you i think you can try . Im also hoping there will be SBF for Canberra.

I think can go ahead and try. There's quite a few of new amenities going up around that area. It's super near Jalan Kayu, a lot of good food there. Near to Seletar mall and future CC. A few stops on LRT to Sengkang MRT / Sengkang Hospital (not that you need it) and the Sports Complex. Of the 3, I think SK has the lesser competition in Feb 19. Good Luck if you are trying!

About the BTO site at Sengkang, situated next to a LRT station means that it is near to everything.

1 stop away from Seletar Mall.
2 stops away from Sengkang Sports Centre.
3 or 4 stops away from Sengkang Town Centre.

Also, it is within 2km radius from Nan Chiau Primary School, and within 1km radius from 3 primary schools (Fernvale, Ferngreen, Sengkang Green).

But, in terms of traveling to the city (reference: Dhoby Ghaut),

The Sengkang BTO is around 40 minutes ride on the LRT and NEL.

Whereas the Jurong West BTOs are around 61-63 minutes ride on the EWL and NSL.

(inclusive of walking, based on Google maps)

The Sengkang BTO is nearer to the city.

Personally, I think Sengkang BTO is better.

Would recommend putting Sengkang BTO as first choice, Jalan Boon Lay BTO as second choice, and Jurong West Street 93 BTO as third choice.

I'm not sure how this BTO thing works. But if given a choice, this is the order of choice that I recommend.
Very detailed write up.

I'm sure a lot of readers here will benefit.

Thanks for the contribution!

Personally i'd be cautious to say Seletar Mall is an attractive feature of the upcoming SK bto. I was there on a weekend and it was wayyy too crowded, comparable to NEX @ Serangoon. Cannot imagine it in the future when more BTOs around the area will come up.

That being said I will still go for SK cos near my hse hahaha

Questions for the experts here, will they ask if you have disposed of a private property 30 months prior when the application opens?

Scenario: Sold a private property and 30 months later will be 1st March 2019, so not sure if can apply for a BTO in Feb 2019.

I think I will try for Kallang/Whampoa this time.

For Nov 18 BTO, I tried for Canberra and my number is 19*/96 so that's pretty much goodbye. But I think Kallang/Whampoa will be overly subscribed too.

My friend who stays nearby said the boards are up for the Boon Keng site.
It will be worse than Canberra for sure but luck is a strange thing .

Its a no brainer.

Only one worth considering is Whampoa simply coz of location.

The other 2 at such ulu locations if u even considering then just wait for better launches in that estates.

Sengkang, seriously!?

Mind sharing why you think SengKang is not a good place? Cos like 1 minute walk to LRT, 1 stop to Seletar Mall and 4 stops to Purple line doesn’t sound too bad 🤔
