Woodlands also has another BTO project named Urban Rise @ Woodlands, which only offers 3- and 4-room flats.

Besides Alexandra Peaks, Ulu Pandan Vista in Queenstown is similarly under the PLH model, with 3- and 4-room units available.

Shorter waiting time for flats

HDB noted that four of the projects have waiting times of four years or less, with Sin Ming Residences having the shortest duration:

  • Sin Ming Residences (Bishan) – 32 months
  • Jurong Arcadia (Jurong West) – 37 months
  • Chai Chee Green (Bedok) – 39 months
  • Petir Park Edge (Bukit Panjang) – 48 months

The board said that it has been “working on various measures to reduce the waiting time for upcoming BTO flats”.

Thanks to such efforts, nearly 70% of flats launched this year have had waiting times of four years or less.

HDB expressed its commitment to offer more such projects moving forward and launch more flats with shorter waiting times (SWT) from 2024.
