Aug 2021 BTO: Towner Residences In-Depth Site Analysis
The Guide to Find your Dream Home
Arguably one of the hottest project for 2021, there are only 300 units available for the Kallang/Whampoa BTO launch in August. When you combine this with its close proximity to the main CBD area, you can expect prices to be higher than usual. You can also expect a lower probability when you wish to ballot for this BTO project. Let us take a look at the locality of this BTO project.
Since It is near to the CBD area, amenities are aplenty! Sheng Siong is just across the road, and a few major shopping centres are nearby too. For avid soccer players, Singapore Khalsa Association is just a few streets away, so you can easily get your soccer fix there. In terms of healthcare, KKH hospital is about a 10minutes drive away, and the up and coming Kallang Polyclinic will be 5 minutes away by foot.
The first that will be on many people’s mind will be the locality of schools, since this project is built in a mature estate. The choices for schools are not as abundance as compared to other BTO launches for August, but this project is still close to schools such as Hong Wen School, Bendemeer Primary as well as Bendemeer Secondary.
As Towner Residences is near to the CBD area, you can expect traffic to be a little congested during the peak hours. CTE is just beside the development, and the entrance to CTE is a few minutes away by car. In terms of public transportation, this project is located about 9 minutes away by foot to the nearest MRT station, hence it might be too convenient for people that are not driving.
Most people in Singapore would know to avoid the west sun because they probably known the sun to rise in the East direction and sets in the West direction. Singapore's afternoon sun mainly are from two directions, northwest and southwest. From March to September, the sun is in the direction of the north-west, and from September to March, the sun is in the south-west direction. Homeowners generally avoid buying west-facing units due to the strong sunrays where the sun will be on the afternoon!
