for open booking flat, only Yishun Glen is available for 4 room and 5 room
not only low floor, but some 5-7th are still available...anyone happen to know what is the main reason these units were not chosen ?

for example..block 383A, from 2nd floor to 7th floor, all unit no 810,812 are available, i dont see any abnormal , can anyone advice why people do not want to choose these unit? because of feng shui, direction?

up to 7th, my guess is the lack of privacy from the 8 storey MSCP (with roof garden) nearby...

Better to study e leftovers properly before booking them.

recently been to my friend house in Punggol, n waiting for lift at e mscp 4th floor, n can see through e units in front of me.

While at his house at night, I look out his windows n can c through e units in front of his units also.

I don’t know about u all, but I’m quite particular about this kinda privacy

The subscription rates for Yishun Glen wasn't that high back at the BTO stage. Not surprising that those who got the project, selected a lower floor unit initially cancelled when they found something better.

We went to check out Yishun Glen over the weekend (in case we cannot get anything when BTO results release tomorrow). The location is one thing, only one feeder bus. We realised that the 4 rooms are priced at 40k above the BTO launch price in this open booking. Resale prices in that area are not that high, so if we want to upgrade to a better location after MOP, our unit will not be able to fetch a decent price as compared to other projects, considering our cost price is already 40k higher than those who got it at BTO.

We decided we will give this a pass and wait for BTO.

There are actually three feeder buses (803, 804 and 806).

I just came back from the site. Agree with you, Yishun Glen is very far from MRT and the price is 40k higher. The location is very bad, it took me around 25min from Yishun Glen to MRT. Will give it a pass too, hopefully we will have good news for BTO tomorrow.
