Many ppl think this Tengah location is not so good, 鸟不生蛋的地方. In actual fact it is quite good. When my parents-in-law to be drove us there to recce, at first sight they exclaimed that this plot location is good le. If you really do your homework on this plot of land (Google maps, site examination, distance to current amenities esp. Bukit Batok and Jurong East, future plans for the estate etc.) then the pricing makes sense. There is a reason why HDB price it as such and why there are still so many ppl applying for it. Don't just think that it's Tengah and it's new, therefore it does not deserve such a high pricing or attract so many applicants. Many ppl have that kind of bias mentality against Tengah.

Around 70% for singles, 30% for elderly. Based on this year's trend, 2-rm for singles is 2x - 4x
I feel this Tengah 1st batch is not ideal for elderly. They have to suffer through all the construction dust and noise due to future developments over 10 years at least.
Construction dust and noise may not be so bad, depends on how HDB develops the town.

For construction of Garden District, the construction vehicles can use PIE and Jurong Road. They need not go through Bukit Batok Road.

For construction of Brickland District, the CCK residents along Brickland Road are going to suffer more than the residents in Tengah Plantation District.

Forest Hill District and Town Central are accessible through KJE.

The construction of Park District definitely affects the residents in Plantation District. Hopefully HDB does not leave it to the last!

Thinking in the same note as you, the current batch of plot (Northmost of plantation) might be hit by the development of Park District unless they can develop Garden and Park at the same time.

Ya, the first batch of flats in Tengah will be ready in 5 years. Hopefully by then, the flats in Park District are halfway done!

Actually the land of north of plantation has been cleared (i might be wrong though), but not south of plantation. i.e between the lorry park and current plot.

I'm not too concerned about that, given that:
1. HDB has already announced that Plantation is the first district to be developed;
2. the new MRT track will run along Bukit Batok Road to the south of current plot. There is a station nearer to the heavy vehicle park, JE2 Tengah Park (serving Dulwich college as well), and the track will cut across the field opposite heavy vehicle park for another station JE3 Bukit Batok West for residents near Block 172.

Five years later, the MRT track probably is being constructed, and the flats in the rest of the Plantation District halfway done.

For the indicative price of 397k to 480k for 5 room for example, does the range apply to stuff like which floor the flat is on, 3 Gen, balcony? Say I pick a flat on the top floor and balcony, means for the flat alone, I will be paying about 480000?

yes, of cos floor plays a part. higher floor = cost more, etc
