Which towns have the most BTO projects?
Punggol and Sengkang.
As you can see, the 2 most popular town for BTOs are Punggol and Sengkang with 58 and 50 projects since 2008.
The biggest reason behind this outlier results that you see here is because both Punggol and Sengkang were new estates that were being developed then.
Let us take a look at the breakdown of Punggol and Sengkang number of BTO projects by the year that they were launched.
As we can see, Punggol BTO was being introduced in 2008 with 1 project and subsequently it was being offered almost throughout the year between 2009 to 2015 and slowly tapering off in the recent few years as the town have matured considerably and the residents have been experiencing traffic congestion as the infrastructures have not been able to keep up with the population growth according to Channel NewsAsia.
Sengkang development was also pretty similar. Although the number of projects offered were not as many as that of Punggol. It was being available throughout 2009 to 2019. It’s peak availability season seem to be between 2010 to 2012. The rate of town maturity should also be on the same pace as that of Punggol.
With the 2 ‘new’ estates maturing, where else can HDB look to offer their BTO projects for Singaporeans?
