The Housing and Development Board will launch a premium housing project in Punggol later this June under the Build-To-Order (BTO) system.
Sited along the Punggol Waterway, the project will offer waterfront living and boasts eco-friendly features.
In line with the project’s emphasis on energy conservation, there will be large courtyards and openings to promote natural ventilation and airflow to flats and common areas.
Solar panels will also be introduced to offset electrical consumption at the common areas.
The premium housing project targets a niche group of buyers who are prepared to pay more for its signature attributes – prime location, groundbreaking design with vantage views and eco-friendly features.
This was revealed by Senior Minister of State for National Development Grace Fu when she launched the Punggol, Remaking our Heartlands Exhibition at HDB Hub.
She said two other BTO projects will also be launched in Sengkang, providing choices for flat buyers with different budgets and preferences.
