Different people have different priorities when it comes to choosing a flat; not everyone wants to stay near the train station and not everyone is willing / has the budget to pay half a million for a 3rd floor 4-room unit at St. George’s Towers.

Tenteram Peak location itself isn’t the most ideal if you compare to St. George’s Towers / McNair Towers / Bendemeer Lights or even Kallang Trivista. If staying near MRT is number one priority, able to afford and looking to sell after MOP, go ahead with these four projects.

Tenteram Peak is still liveable even without a car. Two buses servicing Tenteram Peak may not be enough but have you seen places where there is only one feeder bus to the interchange? Even if a person does not own a car, it does not mean Tenteram Peak is a no go zone.

In my opinion, if a person’s priority is to live in Kallang / Whampoa area but with limited budget, Tenteram Peak is an alternative choice to consider.

The eating house is under renovation, the HDB renovation notice is up on the wall.

Normal walking via the underpass only took me 20 minutes to reach Boon Keng MRT.

PS: If anyone can’t find the underpass, it is near the eating house. Cross the small road beside the eating house, you will see stairs leading down to the underpass. Use Street Directory map instead of Google map.

The background noise is too loud due to the close proximity to expressway...The lower floors have better insulation due to the multi storey carpark. On top of that, it is not uncommon to hear ambulance sirens on the expressway is due to the hospital nearby.

Personally, I feel HDB should not even build so close to it. On top of that, the lifts are by sigma, the company infamous for frequent breakdowns ....

Sadly, nothing is evergreen. This lovely, green plot has been gazetted for another BTO.
this plot gazetted for bto since early 2000s. If they really build something by then i would have already met my MOP

Went to Mcnair Tower ysday, went to the stair case which look out to the Jln Tenteram project, even though its day time and its not so near to the from the highway, from Mcnair towers, can hear the car noise quite loud. Wonder if standing from those units at Jln Tenteram facing the highway w it be worst.

Singapore is dusty anywhere. Expressways merely bring pollution and noise.

I prefer Bendemeer Light. Personally, I find day time highway symphony still alright but the same symphony at night is quite disruptive.

Tenteram Peak is still liveable even without a car. Two buses servicing Tenteram Peak may not be enough but have you seen places where there is only one feeder bus to the interchange? Even if a person does not own a car, it does not mean Tenteram Peak is a no go zone.

Yup, it's about 20 mins to walk. Like what I mentioned, I like the bus stop along PIE that leads to Toa Payoh which has many of my favorite food stalls.

Let's compare 2 BTOs in the same area in 2012.

Tenteram Peak at Kallang / Whampoa - September 2012 BTO
3rm 245K-314K (65 sqm)
4rm 370K-476K (90 sqm)

Bendemeer Light/McNair Towers at Kallang/Whampoa - May 2012 BTO
3rm 322K-401K (65 sqm)
4rm 467K-595K (90 sqm)

Standard flats for Light and premium for Towers.

The premium for 3rm is about 27% to 31% and 4rm is about 25% to 26% over Peak. I'll say HDB priced Peak pretty reasonably given it's location.

I don't have the numbers for Light and Towers but 4rm resale for areas around Peak is about 495K to 540K (85 - 90sqm). That directly translates to 13% to 34%.

The only way to find out which is more"worth it" is to have data for resale near both Light and Towers.

Ya, in fact I was there as my friend stayed there. But cant see it. Anyway Im not sure, any diff on time walkingusing that passage or those overhead bridges to BK Mrt
I personally think not much diff in walk time to MRT between using underpass or overhead bridge.

Yes, the coffee shop opened on 21 Dec 2017.

The coffee shop consists of a veg stall, a drinks stall, a noodle stall, a chicken rice stall, and a Zi Cha store. There are two empty stalls waiting to be leased.

Giant has been open for a few months.

Not true, the kind of dust varies, black color, gray color, etc. Quantity also varies.

The Zi Cha store, initially doing very well, and probably changed hands once, is totally gone.

Poor business.

Giant is dwarfed by the faraway 24 hr NTUC at Whampoa.
