Not sure how jialat the traffic noise is, I only know that Jalan Boon Lay is a very busy road at all hours of the day. If you check the map, and follow Jalan Boon Lay all the way to the end, you will be in Jurong Island. The other end of Jalan Boon is Jalan Bahar, which leads to PIE.

You can expect to see many company buses, public buses (to and from Boon Lay interchange), industrial vehicles and cars using Jalan Boon Lay.

I used to live opposite river valley high school. I feel the chocolate smell is not that bad. But the noise from mrt is quite bad.

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!

The moment an LRT is needed to get to mrt ish a no no

Peak hr take LRT is a nightmare

I've stayed at that area growing up. I can say the location next to the hopistal/temple is a busy junction. Will Jam abit during peak hours. Noise level for sikh temple is mimimal. Hospital is more for the elderly rehabilitation/recovery (when i last visited in 2009).

Walking distance to mrt entrance is just across the road towards south. (tapping gantry area need to walk more as the underground pass is a long path)

Lots of eating places from both towner road and bendemeer. With lots of shops for all kinds of things. A few bus stops ride to the nearest schools. (St andrews/bendemeer)

The main con is the slim chance because it’s still going to be oversubscribed by 4-5x at least. And also the price is naturally higher.

Convenience in that area is very ideal if owners are working in cbd.

Nowsdays it is very hard to find mid city like whampoa after the legendary bto Duxton. The resales value going to shoot like rocket after 5 years. It is too near to shenton way and bugis area.

Can I just do a quick check, I've receive a number for Nov 2018 however, my number exceeded way far off and wasn't given an appt date
Can advise if in this case, when I apply for Feb BTO, am I still consider first timer?

Thanks

You can still apply for new bto as long as you have not book a flat.

They will cancel all your applications once you book a flat.

Anyone know if the Kallang/whampoa sites are considered one of the few that will take shorter completion time?

I like Whampoa bto but seeing it sandwich between hospital and temple and I think the prices will be high, so won’t apply. Besides the plot of land is pretty small, need to be the architect design cos I see the new building of the hospital quite high I dont wanna to look into the wards if I stood near the window , just my tot.
