The good thing about living in the North (Canberra, Sembawang and Yishun) is that we are still surrounded by greenery. Take a look at those living in the concrete jungle in the South! :s13:

anyone did a forecast of the resale value of canberra East Series when these flat reach 5 year MOP , with mrt station within walking distance.

i did a check of flat for canberra/sembawang 4room units all within walking distance to sunplaza/sembawang mrt and the selling price is at $330-400k.

current EastGlen is selling at $251 to $304k , means the value won't increase much after 5 years ?

We need another new neighborhood to take in the CECA overflow from Punggol

Simpang forested area is SAF training ground. Don't think will be gone unless there is a change to SAF policy for the reduction of NSF dramatically which is highly unlikely! :s13:

Lower Seletar Reservoir is water catchment area. How to clear? Singapore needs more water for 6.9 million population. :D

Current population 5.612 million (2017).

For me, I think is undervalued and high chance of appreciation. But even if it did not happen, just stay there till death lah..

Simpang was nearly gone back in the late 1990s when there were plans to develop it, but the plan was abandoned (something like that)

Looking at how fast Yishun is expanding eastwards, I think it just a matter of time only

Sounds pretty far. :(

Not far at all. Macpherson is very good location. All the far Neighbour hood places will be developed with amenities. But location will still lose out

Based on resale value and longer lease, I think can appreciate by $50-70k depending on flat size. Not coincidentally, the amount is also the “discount” given by HDB based on resale prices.

Confirm will happen. Maybe 10 years from now. Cannot the govt build Ave 8 for those few projects nia. Remind me of Admiralty MRT area, govt just keep building northwards till the Johor Straits. From nothing to even industrial parks.

Yes. Simpang area will definitely be cleared.
