February 2023 BTO exercise sees 4,428 flats launched for sale
In Jurong West, HDB is launching two residential blocks of 18 storeys, which can house 271 units of three- and also four-room apartments. The location rises along Jurong West Street 93. Rates start from $187,000 for a three-room flat and also from $288,000 for a four-room one.
Under the February 2023 BTO exercise, two of the five sites have actually been marked Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) projects.

It will have 732 units making up three- plus four-room flats. Indicative costs begin with $372,000 for a three-room condo $541,000 for a four-room flat, excluding subsidies.
Regarding the non-PLH undertakings, OrangeTee & Tie’s Sun projects the Jalan Rajah spot– though not near to an MRT station– to still draw in solid need offered its location near Toa Payoh Central, which has adequate services.
Amongst the lasting 3 BTO sites, one more remains in Kallang, Whampoa, along Jalan Rajah. It has 510 3- and also four-room flats in two 40-storey blocks. Costs start from $326,000 for a three-room flat and from $459,000 for a four-room flat.
Lee Sze Teck, Huttons Asia’s chief analysis executive, includes that bordering amenities, including Farrer Park Primary School, the forthcoming mall Piccadilly Galleria, Tekka Market as well as City Square Shopping mall, further boost the appeal of the project. Lee includes that the many other PLH venture in Queenstown, Ulu Pandan Glades, is close to one more PLH project, Dover Forest, introduced last November. “The costs for flats in Ulu Pandan Glades resemble the earlier launch.”
The 2nd PLH property remains in Kallang and Whampoa, on a location bounded by Race Course Road, Hampshire Roadway and also Farrer Park Road. The development– Farrer Park Fields– are going to have 7 24-storey blocks housing 1,274 units of two-room flexi, three-room and also four– area apartments.

Christine Sun, senior vice president of research and analytics at OrangeTee & Tie, thinks this can lead away some BTO demand to the resale market. “Considering that more assistances are offered, we might just expect much more eligible purchasers to buy at popular locations such as developed estates, or they may get a little bigger condos,” she claims.
Specialists expect Farrer Park Fields to see healthy request provided its closeness to town as well as 2 MRT terminals– Farrer Park along with Little India, the last of which is an interchange for the Downtown and North-East Lines. “We can anticipate strong rivalry for Farrer Park Fields, specifically since BTO developments in the Kallang and Whampoa proximity have a tendency to be fiercely disputed when near an MRT station,” states Mohan Sandrasegeran, One Global Group’s senior analyst for research and content creation.
Sun includes that some new purchasers might wait until the August BTO exercise, which is most likely when the government will certainly allow first-time families to get an added ballot for their BTO applications.
The last site is in the Brickland region of Tengah estate, bounded by Brickland Road and Tengah Boulevard. With 1,641 units throughout 12 non commercial blocks, it is the biggest area under the February 2023 BTO exercise and the just one with five-room apartments. Other unit kinds are two-room flexi, three- and four-room apartments. Costs start from $97,000 for a two-room flexi flat, from $190,000 for a three-room flat, $291,000 for a four-room flat and $401,000 for a five-room flat.
The location in Tengah might garner attraction following the announcement of ACS Primary’s moving to Tengah in 2030. “This may result in even more candidates trying this set of apartments, although we do not anticipate a huge spike in numbers,” claims Sun.
HDB has recently introduced 4,428 flats to sell under the February 2023 Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise. The flats are dispersed across 5 sites over four neighborhoods– Queenstown, Kallang and Whampoa, Jurong West as well as Tengah. This is the first BTO exercise since the Funds news, where actions targeted at helping newbie buyers were introduced, including greater CPF housing grants for those seeking to acquire a resale flat.
At the same time, the Jurong West area is anticipated to take advantage of its location near Pioneer MRT Station. Nevertheless, with only 271 apartments, getting a flat via the balloting process might be tough, claims One Global Group’s Sandrasegeran.
