More BTO exercise in Punggol: HDB

In a reply to Mr Goh Choon Poh’s letter (‘Replicate Punggol’s Treetops project’) published on Straits Times on 1 June, Ms Kee Lay Choo, Deputy Director for Marketing and Project for HDB said that HDB has lined up more BTO projects for launch in Punggol later this year.

According to Ms Kee, though the number of applications for Treelodge@Punggol has exceeded the flat supply by close to four times, but their experience has shown that large number of applicaitons may not ultimately translate into a high take-up rate for a project.

She added that where feasible, HDB will incorporate eco-friendly features in new BTO projects. You can read the reply at Straits Times Interactive.
