HDB has just launched their September 2013 BTO exercise.
In this latest exercise HDB BTO, a total of 5,293 flats for available for sale.
This comprises 4,156 new BTO flats in Punggol and Yishun, including 84 units of 3Gen flats, which is being introduced for the first time. The 3Gen flats will be located in Saraca Breeze @ Yishun.
The 3Gen flats cater to multi-generation families who want to live together. Each 3Gen flat will feature four bedrooms and three bathrooms (two en-suites), with an internal floor area of about 115 sqm.
Only applicants with a multi-generation family comprising at least a married/courting couple and their parent(s) listed in the application, will be eligible to purchase these 3Gen flats.
To address the strong demand from singles, another 1,137 units of 2-room flats which are unsold from previous BTO exercises will be included in this BTO exercise.
Based on the response from the earlier BTO exercise for the units meant for singles, I expect the take-up for these 2-room units to be very high.
