I stay near the future Jurong West plot (behind RVHS) and am thinking of applying for this particular BTO. The old secondary school and fire station that used to occupy the plot have been torn down, and the land has already been cleared and fenced up. However, I have a few concerns.

Pros:

- It's convenient with accessible amenities - within walking distance to Jurong Point Mall and Boon Lay MRT
- Right behind River Valley High School

Cons:

- Right next to the MRT track - not sure if noise will be an issue
- Noise pollution from military jets flying back to Tengah Air Base
- Occasional air pollution from the Cadbury factory nearby

I would appreciate if someone could weigh in on this. :)

If you stay nearby, wouldn't you be the best judge?

Jurong West will be damn popular. Just behind RVHS some more.

Needless to say, Whampoa is a sure oversubscribed by easily 5-6x.

It's at the site of the old Jurong west for station

I dont think Jurong West will have shorter waiting times like the November BTO since both sites havent start building, roughly when is the estimated delivery posession year?

Expect 4 to 5 years of waiting.

Anyone has any thoughts on the Sengkang location? It’s directly next to the LRT but it has a lack of amenities as of now?

It's a good location. 7mins LRT ride to Sengkang. One LRT stop to Seletar Mall. Cut through the park in between High Park Residences & Parc Botannia to reach Jln Kayu. Private condo people paying 1.3 million for a 3-bedroom while HDB pay 400k for 4-room.

Too good to miss!

Both site have not start building and Tengah estimation completion date is 2023 so Jurong West should be around that time although I am hoping it can be earlier.

Yeah if I'm not wrong both the secondary school and the fire station was demolished this year.
