kallang/boon keng at 534 closing today. my number is ~650. shouldnt be able to get even a unit at boonkeng on my appointment next thurs.
but i confirm can get a good unit at kallang. my gf is worried about that place as its quite near to lupsup and the amenities suck around that area.
but i dont want to give up an opportunity to get a good floor at kallang if future redevelopments turn out well there, plus location wise it really doesnt lose out to boonkeng by alot. heard that there is govt talk about moving lupsup totally out of geylang
havent heard much about any discussion at kallang here. any experts can advise if i should just give up the good floor or just take the kallang as my 2nd choice?
thanks in advance

As mentioned, you collect keys almost one year earlier, cheaper units compared to Boon Keng. It’s not very near the red light district so no worries about that. The plot is also not next to a hospital and a temple. Lots of food choices within walking distance.
The down side is that you’ll have to bear with the noise from expressway/ trains/ main road. For the time being, there is no sheltered path to Kallang station and no bus service to Kallang Breeze.
Better to discuss with your partner and think through. The decision would stay for the next 8-9 years till MOP.
