Cheaper Punggol Flats

As published in The Straits Times
26 Mar 09 (Thursday)

By Jessica Cheam

THE Housing Board (HDB) put on sale its first batch of new Punggol flats on Thursday.

Prices this time are 10 to 16 per cent cheaper than the last launch of Punggol Regalia in December, primarily due to location and design features.

The flats are slightly smaller and is 'further from the town centre and main transportation nodes', said HDB in a statement.

The 519 four- and five-room units offered at The Nautilus @ Punggol is a standard project - essentially new flats with minimal frills and basic features.

On offer are 413 four-roomers of 90 sq m going at $228,000 to $274,000; while 106 five-roomers of 110 sq m are on sale at $305,000 to $357,000.

The Nautilus - eights blocks of 18 storeys- is located further away from the Punggol town centre, on the eastern side, and is served by two LRT stations, the Riviera and Coral Edge.

In contrast, Punggol Regalia, which is located at a prime spot next to Punggol MRT, was a …

The Nautilus@Punggol




SINGAPORE: The Nautilus@Punggol is the Housing and Development Board's (HDB) latest Build-To-Order (BTO) project and the first in that area.

Prices for its 4- and 5-room units are about 20 to 30 per cent lower than the resale flats in that vicinity, signalling generous subsidies for these new flats.

The Nautilus@Punggol will have eight blocks comprising some 520 flats. Of these, nearly 80 per cent are 4-room flats and the rest are 5-room apartments.

HDB said the prices of the new flats are affordable for first-time buyers.

Giving a comparison of resale flats about seven years old in Punggol, HDB said 4-room resale flats are currently going at between S$306,000 and S$350,000, while 4-room flats at The Nautilus will be sold at between S$228,000 and S$274,000.

Likewise, The Nautilus' 5-room flats are priced in the range of S$305,000 to S$357,000 against the resale price range of S$368,000 to S$428,888 …

City-bound motorists from Sengkang, Punggol and Hougang can save up to 7 mins

GETTING on the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) during the morning rush hour will be a zippier affair for residents of Sengkang, Punggol and Hougang, with a new road link opening on Sunday.

The 1.32km-long Buangkok East Drive in Sengkang connects Buangkok Drive to the KPE, and shaves up to seven minutes off the city-bound trip for them.

The road, which includes a 200m vehicular bridge over the Serangoon River, is a shorter route to the expressway than the current one, which requires motorists to take a stretch of the Tampines Expressway (TPE).

Buangkok East Drive welcomed its first vehicles at 5pm yesterday, after Defence Minister …

Waterfront Estate Design Contest A Big Draw

As published in The Straits Times
11 Mar 2009 (Wednesday)

By Jessica Cheam

A COMPETITION to design Punggol's first waterfront homes has attracted a huge response from local and foreign architects.

A technical seminar held yesterday for participating architectural firms drew a turnout of more than 200 people, all keen to have a say in how Singapore's first waterfront public housing estate will take shape.

Architects have to design a masterplan for a 26.6ha housing district west of Punggol's town centre by April 17.

Five shortlisted firms will go on to design a more detailed 4.9ha site along the Punggol Waterway. This phase of the competition closes on Aug 21.

The top design will be announced and exhibited in November, with the winning team contracted to execute its masterplan. The Housing Board plans to offer the waterfront homes by mid-2010.

The winner will be awarded $300,000, which is part of the consultancy fee for the project. Two merit winners will also be chosen and awarded …

Upcoming Punggol prices

Excerpt from Weekend TODAY paper
07-08 Mar 09

Meanwhile, asked if prices of new HDB flats will come down, since those of resale Punggol flats have fallen in recent weeks, Senior Minister of State for National Development Grace Fu said:

"For every project that is launched, we will take the cue from the market. So for every batch that is coming up, if the curent market has adjusted, we will basically adjust the selling price accordingly."

Punggol resale flats close the price gap

As published in The Straits Times
06 Mar 2009 (Friday)

By Jessica Cheam

PRICES of resale HDB flats in Punggol have fallen in recent weeks to the point where they are now around the same level as new ones launched barely two months ago.

Normally new flats are markedly cheaper than resale ones as the Housing Board "deeply discounts" their price to prevailing market values as a form of subsidy to first-time home buyers.

But the worsening recession, fragile job market and weak property sector have closed this "discount gap" to virtually nothing in some cases, making resale homes as attractive as new ones.

This is a reversal of the trend during the pre-crisis property boom which saw first-timers flock to HDB for new flats when they found themselves priced out of the resale market.

Experts also point to weaker demand for premium, five-room flat types, which has led to a drop in prices.

The HDB’s website this week showed that the range of resale prices for such five-roomers in Pu…
