4,170 HDB flats launched in first BTO exercise of 2016
« on: February 25, 2016, 04:07:54 pm »
http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/4-170-hdb-flats-launched/2543692.html

A wide range of flats, comprising two-room Flexi to Three-Generation (3Gen) flats will be launched in Bukit Batok, Sengkang and Bidadari during this exercise, said HDB.

The flats launched on Wednesday make up the first tranche of 18,000 HDB units to be launched this year. In May, HDB will offer about 4,070 BTO flats in Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Bukit Merah, Bukit Panjang and Sembawang, while 5,000 balance flats will be offered in a concurrent Sale of Balance Flats exercise.


I noticed the HDB projects launched yesterday have eco-friendly features like separate chutes for recyclable waste.  I wonder if this will be a trend for all future HDB flats. 

Sengkang example below. (source: hdb.gov.sg)

To encourage a 'green' lifestyle, Anchorvale Plains will have several eco-friendly features:
- Separate chutes for recyclable waste
- Motion sensor controlled energy efficient lighting at staircases to reduce energy consumption
- Regenerative lifts to reduce energy consumption
- Eco-pedestals in bathrooms to encourage water conservation
- Bicycle stands to encourage cycling as an environmentally friendly form of transport
- Facilitate the Car-sharing scheme by making parking spaces available for shared cars
- Use of sustainable and recycled products in the development

Not many friends there eh? When traffic is slow there, they call it constipated. :P

Most of them should come from recent new launches aka flats to be built near crematoriums/nursing homes/mental homes.  :-X  The remaining flats be from anywhere in Singapore including those old flats and are available for move in immediately. 

The launches this time round with both 5-room and this new 3Gen concept had fewer subscriptions for 5-room flats.  3Gen is a great idea but it will effectively make 5-room and executive flats near extinct.  See below and you will understand why.

4rm - 90sqm, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
5rm - 110sqm, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
3Gen- 115sqm, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
Exec - 130sqm, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

3Gen is probably meant for newly weds who wish to live with in-laws. example @happyshar :D If I am not wrong, it has 2 bedrooms with attached toilets.  It will make a very rent-worthy unit after the minimum occupation period simply because of more bedrooms and bathrooms.
