HDB Launches 3,879 BTO Flats Across 4 Estates In May Release
Current Covid-19 measures may have us on heightened alert, but that may not be the only thing some Singaporeans are paying attention to. Aspiring homeowners, in particular, may be on the lookout for Build-To-Order (BTO) flats.
On Tuesday (25 May), the Housing & Development Board (HDB) launched over 3,800 new BTO units across 4 locations, including MacPherson and Telok Blangah.
Those who have been eying a flat at one of these estates will have to submit their applications by next Monday (31 May) for a chance at securing a unit.
MacPherson Weave BTO flats have direct access to 2 MRT lines
In terms of accessibility, it seems MacPherson Weave in Geylang is the clear front runner.
Located right next to MacPherson MRT, future residents will have access to the Downtown and Circle Lines.
Additionally, MacPherson Weave is a stone’s throw away from the food haven of Geylang and the industrial areas in Tai Seng.
1,382 units across 7 blocks will be available at the development which also comprises other amenities like a 2-storey childcare centre and a multi-storey car park.

Telok Blangah Beacon is a single 38-storey HDB block

Besides being located next to Telok Blangah Food Centre, the development will also have shops and eateries directly below the block.
It’s conveniently located between 2 Circle Line MRT stations – Labrador Park and Telok Blangah – and other transport arteries like the West Coast Highway and the AYE.
