HDB BTO 2008

12 HDB BTO Projects yielding 8,000 Dwelling Units, ready by 2012, on 25 Hectares of HDB land (320 du/ha). Each project has an average of 670 DU. HDB will spend $1.3 billion for their construction or $163,000 per DU.

Punggol Regalia and Punggol Residences (BTO 2009) are a pair of design and build project awarded by HDB to two different contractors but the same Architect. The design of Punggol Residences unfortunately is somewhat “basic” despite being a premium project - 8 blocks are placed two in a row, one after the other. Although there is decent breathing space of about 30 meters between blocks, units will undeniably come face-to-face despite being angled slightly off each other. Punggol Regalia in comparison occupies an almost equal amount of land area, has slightly lesser units, but is considerably better designed as the 8 blocks are places around its perimeters with open space of 100 meters by 60 meters.
