I got a unit at 107 from RoF. Haven't moved in yet but the last scouting trip I did, supermarket is up and I saw some of the shop houses near it being renovated. Clinics and stuff so it's slowly being populated.

I don't mind walking since it's like the only exercise i get but it looks like about 1.2km walk to the MRT when it opens. I heard the shuttle service wait time is going down as the number of people staying there increases. Plus if I can't get a unit near MRT/town hub, might as well stay at the secondary hub area.

I prefer the eastbrook side cos looks quieter and I like the giant longkang and greenery opposite it. Nice place to take afternoon/evening stroll.
Thanks for that!
Is the supermarket Sheng Shiong like what CherryBee mentioned? Is it a big store? haha

Roughly how long does it take to walk to the Canberra MRT side?
Oh, what shuttle service is there? Where does it go to/from?

Yeah, I saw the forest place across the longkang too. Do you know if there's any plans on what that place would become? Cos the previous time i went, it looked like they are clearing some trees.. but not too sure also.

Yes, it's the Sheng Shiong. It's quite big, almost entire floor. Looks quite well stocked.

The forest is part of Simpang. I don't think that there is any planned development for the time being but I'm not 100% sure. I think I read somewhere that in the future, it may be developed but probably like after Tengah or something so probably like a decade or 2 later.

I just looked at the URA 2014 master plan. It's reserved for a future Simpang New Town but no plans to start develop yet.

No idea. I went down 4 times to take a look, different time of the day during Feb-April. Didn't detect any bad smells from both longkang along 107C. And I think they trying to make the big one nicer, saw construction works in the longkang itself. Maybe something similar to what they did at Potong Pasir.

My unit is nt facing simpang, it’s facing the playground hehe.
Actually eventho eastbrook is the furthest in, i think it’s ok leh.. later on when the shops all open it will be quite convenient. There is 1 salon and 1 k-cuts opened at 105 currently, gona have a dental clinic too. Sheng siong is good for last minute stock ups, quite a huge variety of items.

hey...blk 104.. and those 10* series..will be completed Q4 2019 only right? hmmm...

Sorry see wrongly..i just checkd d map..104/105 is all completed..cool.. is the place very dark at night if u see d forest behind heheh..

It's all over the place. You sort of have to dig and read different sections. Their page is badly organised.
