Ang Mo Kio BTO – Nature views & school district

Right in the heart of our nation’s heartlands, this slate of BTO releases are surrounded by a ring of schools and facilities between Ang Mo Kio Avenue 2 & Ang Mo Kio Street 21.

With 380 new 4-room and 5-room flats, families can look forward to bidding for brand new spaces in this solid mature estate.

The Bishan BTO ring has got you covered with sports amenities such as the Bishan Stadium and Swimming Complex.

Another mature heartlands area, there is no lack of public facilities such as the much loved Junction 8 mall.


If you prefer a quieter retreat, there is also the Bishan Library, just a stone’s throw away from the mall.

Flats available:

  • 2-room Flexi: From $96,000
  • 3-room: From $242,000*
  • 4-room: From $439,000*

Tampines – Hub of possibilities

A little further east, the Tampines estate has the second largest number of new slots at 1,760.

Based on the map, we can see that picking Tampines as your BTO estate of choice will open up a hood of new possibilities.


The neighbourhood boasts a slew of proposed projects such as a brand new proposed park and place of worship.

While a little further away from the city centre, this developing hub is not to be sidelined — within walking distance of a new Tampines North MRT Station & bus interchange.

Fans of Tampines IKEA’s meatballs & fried chicken wings will also be glad to know that the estate is within walking distance of the furniture giant.


That’s how newly BTO-ed couples will definitely be able to adorn their dream homes with matching furniture too.

Flats available:

  • 3-room: From $145,000*
  • 4-room: From $266,000*
  • 5-room: From $393,000*

You can participate in HDB’s sales launches for BTOs and open booking of flats as long as you have not booked a flat in previous exercises.

Open booking of flats are also possible — this lets you book your flat as early as the next working day, after you’ve completed the online application.

For more information, please visit HDB’s website. Do remember to finalise your bids from today (12 Aug), before the deadline of Tuesday (18 Aug), 11.59pm.

Build your own chances

While diamonds are purported to be a girl’s best friend, a BTO is the Singaporean equivalent of this notion. It may even earn you some brownie points from your mother-in-law.

If you missed the flats in these areas during the rounds, this could be your chance to try your luck again. All you have to do is jio bae & camp on HDB’s site early for a first glimpse soon.
