Canberra is not that undeveloped. Have you even been there?

They have basic amenities which is enough considering about 50+% of the HDB flats there aren't even ready.

Also, if you wait till it's developed, the price will shoot up so yes, it's like investing in stocks.

The residents knew what they were getting into when they BTO'd there and in about 2-5 years, it won't be a ghost town anymore so what's the problem?

You think AMK, Bishan, TPY all what? Everything created in a workshop, then they throw it into the piece of land? You think the early residents didn't have to wait for their amenities to be developed when towns in AMK/Bishan/TPY were first built?

So yes, you all are short sighted as fark.

If you all rich, you wouldn't even bother with HDBs lah :s13:
Northpoint and sunplaza is just a station away.

I am most likely biased, but just knowing I have Sheng Siong and probably NTUC within walking/cycling distance is making me quite happy that my flat is in Canberra. :s13:

Early Mover = Cheaper price but amenities lacking.
Late Mover = Higher price but amenities ready.

Take your pick whether you want to have early mover or late mover advantage. :s13:

Upcoming Nov BTO launch will feature 310 flats in Canberra that is around 450m (6mins) away from the upcoming Canberra MRT.

I saw some previous post on URA that the field next to EastLawn is reserved for educational purpose but on HDB website it just show a Park there. Any thoughts on that?

URA Masterplan is the future planning guide
HDB is using a map which is showing the current structure

There is a small park there mah. They also mark out another park behind eastbrook which is another small park. I don't see any conflicts.

The distance between the Nov BTO and future Canberra MRT Station is at least 600m and not 450m. :s13:

I think in a year's time Canberra MRT station will be open. Property valuation instant bump. :s13:
