Also agree.
So some are looking forward patiently to Great Southern Waterfront ECs for $1k+ with great sea views.

The only 2 decent river view I know are Kallang /Singapore Rivers.

Agree. It's totally a drainage view. Those who continue to promote the river or waterfront view, please pay a visit and measure the width of it. Plus, Close enough is blocs of HDB facing your living rooms, bedrooms, and balcony, totally blocking any wind from the south.

Further on this, the nearby HDB Punggol Bayview project has way much better river view than so-called Riverfront-view units in the Sumang EC.

The river facing units if Sumang were snapped up I believe.

View not really important to me now after some thinking and rationalising. Like now, I also relaxing in library of Compass One. Why want to stay cooped up at home leh?

Dunno leh. So many people supposedly buy the river view in Sumang. You also agree not nice view ah
The so call river view is just a sewage canal. All the shiiitty water flows into there. On a hot day, the stench is unbearable.

To sour grapes/lemon/lime :
Rivers can be clean up.
And URA may do that to 'Sumang River' later.

Kallang /Singapore Rivers were once........

ya lor.
later. Just dunno when.

Non-sour grapes/lemon/lime, please bear with the smell, if any, while waiting.

Trust Merg91. The clean up will definitely come.
One day.

Meanwhile, do take care of health.

I want to ask the agents something and this is the only EC thread



How much pass the income limit can we go if we want to apply for ECs? I know of some who appeal and make it but what is the limit?
$14k HHI is the limit. Appeal is subject to approval. But don't count on it.

Sometimes stench can be due to things that sg cannot control

Sour grapes/lemons/limes already very sour. Most likely won't want to tahan more sourness. But probably this is minority.

Majority might actually like the air, and will continue push property prices here high up by high demand.

Even Kallang /Singapore River could become so nice, and you worry about URA not be able to handle a small longkang?

And PG will be TOP in .......years later.

But I dont think Singapore River nice leh. Can still be quite smelly when you walk along. Only not as bad as last time. But just don't want to disappoint you only since you like smelly things so much.

Punggol river clean up has started at least 10 years ago when residents started moving in. Till now.... maybe another 10 years should be fine hor?

Maybe only.

Smell?
Go out & see !
Many local /tourists awe to see such clean rivers in a city centre.

These 2 rivers around Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay, Marina Barrage all the way to Indoor Stadium are my regular long /shorter walks.

Not an agent but i have friend who is in a good position to advice. Typically exceed by 5% should not be too difficult to appeal. Beyond that will need to have good justification and show evidence.

I guess you are thinking those who bought into Punggol earlier are dumb not to wait for the river to be cleared up better.

And those who bought PG are smart because the river will smell all nice and clean by the time TOP.

Point taken.
