There's an empty plot beside EastCrown, facing canal.

On the Master Plan 2014 this small empty plot of land at the southwest corner of EastCrown is marked as reserved land. I am wondering what URA has in store for this land plot in the future. :s13:

Different main contractor and different project different. Not to worry.

Yes there are different main contractors at Canberra estates. Some better and build faster than others.

I heard last time used to have reservists deployed there, esp during the Singapore - Malaysia tension in the 90s ... :D

Just discovered this Slumberra thread hahaha! :s13:

In July 2014 I correctly predicted the exact location of Canberra MRT Station. :s13:

During that time Eastlink I BTO not released yet. Side by side with neighbourhood centre named Canberra Plaza. Eastlink I will have a connecting overhead bridge to Canberra MRT Station at the opposite side of the road.

Slumberra is indeed quite inconvenient to stay for now as not much amenities. Canberra MRT Station only ready in 2019.

Smart property punt is all about first mover advantage. You will have to pay a premium by the time amenities are rolled out and ready.

Canberra is Sembawang right? Sembawang should already have full pledge amenities.

That mrt station is elevated. Flats that face the mrt station will have to endure noise from the mrt trains, after revenue hours maintenance, station announcements.

The forested area, called Simpang, is where the new Ave 8 is being built. It is going to run parallel to Ave 2 and we all know how congested that road is.

Once the road construction is completed, you can jolly well bet more HDB gonna pop up. In fact, Simpang township has been on the cards since 1980s, and its about the size of Punggol.

I thought simpang is SAF training area?

Yes Canberra is part of Sembawang.

Yes just like those flats in other areas that are facing elevated MRT Stations.
