As Woodlands is quite established, there a plenty of schools here. For primary schools, the new BTO project is minutes away from Si Ling Primary School as well as Fuchun Primary & Secondary Schools.

These 100 hectares of land will be redeveloped into a vibrant hub that incorporates industrial, research, and businesses altogether in one large strategic centre for the Northern Agri-Tech and Food Corridor. While this means that Woodlands will be a busier place, that will also mean that the resale value of the BTO might go up since it is expected that there will be a higher demand for rental flats in the near future.
With the presence of the main North-South line at Woodlands as well as the integrated bus interchange, there are plenty of options should you decide to head out of Woodlands via public transport. SLE is also nearby if you decide to drive out of Woodlands.
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!
