It’s no doubt that the August Build to Order (BTO) 2022 launch was hot. And with the resale market hitting new highs (S$1 million seriously?), aspiring homeowners would likely be considering the next BTO launch which is coming this November.

Whether you’ve missed your shot at the August BTO 2022, or it is your first time trying out for a BTO, the Novย 2022 BTO launch is something to look forward to with its nine projects across 9,500 flats and five estates to choose from.

Nov 2022 BTO – Kallang/Whampoa

Source: HDB

First up, we have Kallang/Whampoa with one mature estate project for the Nov BTO 2022. Given its excellent location right beside Kallang MRT (just three stops from City Hall, four stops from Raffles Place and two stops from Paya Lebar, it is highly likely that this project will fall under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model scheme.

Nearby, you’ll have access to a plethora of food choices right across the road and along Geylang Road which is lined with coffee shops and restaurants. Grocery runs won’t take long either with an NTUC, value mart and Sheng Siong supermarket in the vicinity.

To top it off, the project is right beside the Kallang River (an unblocked view of the river if you are lucky with flat selection) and the Kallang Park Connector for your daily exercise or leisure activities.

Nov 2022 BTO – Queenstown

Next, we have Queenstown with three projects lined up for the Nov 2022 BTO launch:

  • Along Commonwealth Ave. West (1,330 units)
  • Along Queensway (960 units)
  • Between Ghim Moh Road and North Buona Vista Road (960 units)

Like Kallang/Whampoa, these projects are in a prime location so we wouldn’t be surprised if they fall under the PLH model scheme.

Along Commonwealth Ave. West

Nestled between Ulu Pandan Park Connector and Commonwealth Avenue West, this project of 1,330 units is another hotspot for the Nov 2022 BTO launch.

There’s Dover MRT just minutes away, and a nearby NTUC, Sheng Siong, and a popular market just down the road. You’ll also be close to malls such as The Star Vista and Rochester mall.

For those planning to have kids, there isn’t a shortage of schools surrounding the area from Fairfield Methodist Primary School and ACS (I) to Singapore Polytechnic, ACJC and NUS. If you wanted, your kids could be educated from primary school all the way up to university without having to travel more than 20 minutes from home.

Along Queensway

Fancy a morning walk at the Railway Corridor? This project along Queensway allows you to do just that with an access point just minutes away. What’s not minutes away however is an MRT station, with the nearest being Queenstown MRT station (about a 1.5km walk).

Source: Google Maps

Aside from that, we have Queensway Shopping Centre, Anchorpoint Shopping Centre and Alexandra Mall nearby so you won’t be short on food and grocery options. As a cherry on top, you are also close by to IKEA for your food (and furniture) cravings.

Do note that Alexandra Hospital is right down south as well and this may be a bane for some with the possibility of sirens wailing at night.

Between Ghim Moh Road and North Buona Vista Road

Perhaps the best of the bunch, this project is just across from Buona Vista MRT station, which is on the East-West line and Circle line.

If you’re one for having plenty of lifestyle options, you’ll be thrilled to know that it is in close proximity to Holland Village which will be upgraded even further in the future. The Railway Corridor is also right beside, along with easy access to The Star Vista, Holland Drive Market and Food Centre, supermarkets and two community clubs.

For those intending to have kids, you’ll have a great selection of schools similar to the ones in the larger Queenstown project mentioned above.

Nov 2022 BTO – Bukit Batok

Moving on to non-mature estates, we have one project in Bukit Batok.

The closest MRT is Bukit Gombak MRT station which is roughly a 10 minutes walk. Along the way, there is a Giant supermarket, McDonald’s, a handful of hair studios, food courts and the like, making it quite convenient for future residents.

Further down, you’ll also encounter Little Guilin which is famous for its granite rock formations and as a great space to relax with the town park nearby. Sports-lovers will also enjoy the close proximity to Bukit Gombak Sports Hall and Stadium.

Households with kids won’t have too much of an issue finding schools nearby as well with Dazhong Primary School just a few minutes away and other schools in the surrounding areas.

Nov 2022 BTO – Tengah

Next, we have one project at Tengah with a whopping 2,070 units, making it the largest project in this Nov 2022 BTO launch.

Source: Google Maps

The first thing that you might notice is that the Google Maps variant of the location is empty northwards. That’s because the entire region will be developed from scratch!

You’ll get to enjoy new amenities, a new MRT station at your doorstep (Hong Kah MRT, JS4, Jurong Rail Line) and a new park in the centre of the site. Plus, the new town will be the first HDB town that is planned with smart technologies town-wide from the beginning!

Hong Kah MRT is slated for completion in 2027.

In terms of amenities, however, the closest supermarket (as of now) is a Giant Express nearby Jurong Central Plaza, which is roughly 20 minutes away. While there are some existing schools around, not much else can be said about the proposed amenities as things could very well change in time. You should expect to travel a bit for your daily necessities.

Nov 2022 BTO – Yishun

Ah yes, Singapore’s very own Florida.

Jokes aside, Yishun is set to host three projects in the Nov 2022 BTO launch, all next to one another.

These sites are just beside Seletar Reservoir and the nearby Orchid Country Club. So, if you’re lucky, you could get a panoramic view of the reservoir and the greenery of the golf course.

That said, the lease of the golf course expires in 2030 and more residential units could be constructed in its place. Applicants for this BTO will have to settle for buses as there are no MRT stations within the vicinity. Unless of course, you’re rich enough to stomach the skyrocketing COE prices.

There are a handful of food courts nearby as well as Yishun mall and SAFRA Yishun for amenities. The closest supermarket would be Giant which is located in Yishun Mall.

For families with kids, there are a few preschools and schools nearby such as North View primary school and Northbrooks secondary school.

Although this location doesn’t sound all too convenient, it comes with easy access to Yishun Dam and Rower’s Bay Park for leisure activities.
