Like we have shared in many of our previous analysis of previous Tengah BTO launches, the pros and cons of the Tengah estate lies in its “potential”.
Due to the fact that Tengah is one of the newest estates, homeowners are hard pressed to find any existing amenities or connectivity to speak of. But plenty of plans have been set in place to develop Tengah as a “smart & sustainable” town of the future! We cannot wait to see the development in years to come! If you are working in the Jurong Innovation District and Jurong Lake district (the proposed future second CBD), these sites are also perfect for a short trip to work!
This development is bounded by Balestier Road and McNair Road. It comprises 3 residential blocks ranging from 24 to 40 storeys in height, and 1 of these blocks will house some rental flats. You can choose from 626 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-, and 4-room flats. The 2-room Flexi flats in the development are only offered to seniors (aged 55 and above), on short leases between 15 and 45 years (in 5-year increments).
|Flat Type||Units||Estimated Price Range|
|2-Room Flexi (Type 1)||46||$117,000 – $136,000|
|2-Room Flexi (Type 2)||90||$139,000 – $182,000|
|3-Room||104||$359,000 – $453,000|
|4-Room||386||$532,000 – $672,000|

Just a couple of stops away from being at the heart of Singapore’s prime shopping or work district! There are not many HDB estates with proximity to town and CBD like Kallang/ Whampoa.
Being a mature estate, there are also quite the number of amenities in the area – from a hospital literally at your doorstep to 3 malls a short bus ride or walk away. Save for the lack of schools in the area – it would be perfect!
Bartley GreenRise, ParkEdge @ Bidadari and Alkaff Breeze
This month’s launch consist a total of 1,216 units ranging of 3-room, 4-room and 5-room flats, this is one of the larger offerings and is split across three sites!
