HDB BTO June 2024 Kallang/Whampoa Review: Stay in Tanjong Rhu, Along Geylang River

HDB BTO June 2024 Kallang/Whampoa Review: Stay in Tanjong Rhu, Along Geylang River
HDB BTO June 2024 Kallang/Whampoa Review: Stay in Tanjong Rhu, Along Geylang River

Want to apply for the Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 project? Just like Kit Chan’s “Home”, your future home truly could be right where the river always flows.

Instead of the Singapore River, however, with the Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 project, you’ll have the Geylang River. The Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 launch offers a chance for many to live in Tanjong Rhu with a total of about 2,020 2-room Flexi, 3-room, and 4-room BTO flats.

The estimated 2,020 Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 flats are spread across two blocks: about 1,400 BTO flats in the more southern plot, while the smaller plot comprises about 620 BTO flats. Being launched in such an attractive location also means that the Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 project will likely come under the Prime Location Public Housing Model (PLH) model.

The Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 flats will be near upcoming MRT stations (Tanjong Rhu and Katong Park MRT stations) along the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL); from there, you can head to Marina Bay and the city (Maxwell and Orchard MRT stations) within a few stops. It also connects residents to the Lentor and Woodlands areas.

For those who drive, these homes are also a quick driving distance to the Greater Southern Waterfront, which is en route to a massive infrastructure ‘renovation’ very soon.

Today, there are already outdoor recreational options nearby with the Sports Hub on one side of the Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 project and East Coast Park – along the upcoming Bayshore estate – on the other. Those who enjoy travelling by bicycle will most likely have made use of the park connectors that lead all the way to Changi.

Given that the upcoming Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 project in Tanjong Rhu will likely fall under the PLH model and is in the ‘fancy’ District 15, we may expect prices to be higher than that of the Farrer Park Arena Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO May 2023 project.

Previous Kallang/Whampoa BTO application rates have typically been two to three times the number of BTO flats launched.

Considering that applicants for the Farrer Park Arena Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO May 2023 project were two to three times more than the number of available units, the upcoming Kallang/Whampoa HDB BTO June 2024 project, in Tanjong Rhu, will likely see similarly high application rates.
