The five-year wait for landed property home buyers is finally over! The Pollen Collection by Bukit Sembawang Estates is the first government-sold site for landed homes since Lorong 1 Realty Park in 2017, and it presents a rare opportunity for multi-generational families to live under one roof while having sufficient personal space.
Located at Nim Road, in District 28, Pollen Collection comprises 132 units of 99-year leasehold 3-storey landed homes with an attic, including 106 intermediate terraces, 22 corner terraces and 2 pairs of semi-detached houses.
Renowned interior designers W Architects will be integrating the indoor spaces with outdoor living and dining spaces to let residents enjoy better views and air circulation.
Achievements by Pollen Collection developer Bukit Sembawang Estates
The project is highly anticipated by property watchers and buyers alike, especially given the impressive track record of the developers.
Bukit Sembawang Estates saw much success with their new launch project Liv @ MB, which occupies the former Katong Park Towers site in District 15. It sold over 75% of its 298 units on its launch weekend, at an average selling price of S$2,387 per square foot (psf).
Just as Liv @ MB breathed new life into the old school neighbourhood, Pollen Collection is also expected to invigorate the hitherto stagnant local landed property market, which accounts for only 5% of housing units in Singapore.
Surrounded by expressways and transportation
Being a landed property, Pollen Collection’s accessibility is understandably not as good as other residential projects, be it condominiums or HDB flats, that have direct access to MRT stations or bus services. But it may not matter to potential homebuyers of Pollen Collection who are highly likely in possession of their own vehicles.
That said, there is some form of public transportation available nearby as bus stops aren’t actually too far off You’ll reach the ones along Yio Chu Kang Road and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 within 5-7 minutes of walking.
Pollen Collection is conveniently located on the fringe of Nim Road estate, off Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5. This puts you within mere minutes away from major expressways such as Central Expressway (CTE) and the future North-South Corridor (NSC). The CTE will provide you with a direct 25-minute path to the Central Business District. You can also expect your property’s price to appreciate once the NSC is completed in 2026, which will bring the northern neighbourhoods of Sembawang, Woodlands and Yishun even closer.
Speaking of future developments, Tavistock MRT of the Cross Island Line will also bring greater convenience to residents upon its completion in 2030 as it is only a 10-min drive away.
Always within driving distance of lifestyle malls
Flanked by Seletar and Ang Mo Kio, you will also have no shortage of food and retail options to help you unwind. Ang Mo Kio Hub can be accessed westwards within a short 14-minute drive, while Seletar Mall and Greenwich V can be reached within 7 minutes and 3 minutes by car respectively.
You may even choose to take a leisurely 16-minute stroll to Greenwich V to enjoy its chic cafe brunches in outdoor spaces surrounded by greenery that Pollen Collection residents of any age can enjoy. Proximity to Ang Mo Kio also means that you’ll always be one short drive away from treating your elderly parents to affordable, nostalgic meals such as Eng Ho’s classic Fried Hokkien Mee and Lao San Kway Chap.
An impressive line of educational institutions
Whether your children are starting their first few years of formal education or preparing themselves for university or the workforce, there are plenty of schooling options available for students of all ages. Buses 70 and 854 from the bus station after Dedap Road will take Rosyth Primary School students within walking distance of their school in about 34 minutes. The same alighting bus stop near Gracehaven S Army is also close to Bowen Secondary School and Xinmin Secondary School, both of which boast an impressive history of nurturing talented individuals.
Known for its award-winning Wushu and robotics program, Peihwa Secondary School can be reached within an 8-minute by drive or 11 minutes by bike. Bus 163 also offers a direct route to school after a 3-minute walk out of the landed property estate.
Secondary school graduates will get to enjoy proximity to popular institutions no matter which post-secondary route they decide to take. For starters, ITE College Central is the closest to Pollen Collection and can be accessed via the CTE within 8 minutes by car and 11 minutes by bike. In particular, the comfortable cycling distance means that students will get to stay healthy while also enjoying quick commutes to and from lectures.
Students going to the polytechnic route can enjoy four bus services (159, 50, 72, 88) for a quick 30-minute commute to Nanyang Polytechnic. Finally, bus 70 takes students of Anderson-Serangoon Junior College directly to and from their homes. Nestled within close proximity to all three institutions is Yio Chu Kang Stadium to provide students with a convenient option for running, swimming and going to the gym between classes.
