1. Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II BTO is a PLH Flat

Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II BTO falls under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model, which means the Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) of 10 years. While this is double the typical MOP of 5 years, flats will benefit from additional subsidies on top of the substantial market discounts already applied to all BTO flats. This ensures that flats remain affordable despite being in a prime location. As a result, the flats are priced significantly lower than comparable resale flats in the area.

2. Substantial financial benefits

The PLH flats in Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II BTO will come with additional subsidies, making them even more affordable. The subsidy recovery rate for these flats is set at 9%, which means that owners will need to return 9% of the resale price or valuation upon selling their flats.

3. Special allocation for 1st timer and 2nd timer families

To support family formations, 20% of the flats in Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II BTO will be set aside for first-timer families, and 2% for second-timer families under the Married Child Priority Scheme. This special allocation ensures that young families have a better chance of securing a flat in this prime location.

What’s so special about Kallang/Whampoa?

The location of Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II BTO in Kallang/Whampoa offers numerous benefits:

  • Accessibility: Excellent connectivity via public transport and major roads, including the Kallang and Mountbatten MRT stations, which are just a short walk away.
  • Amenities: Close proximity to shopping malls such as Kallang Wave Mall and City Square Mall, as well as healthcare facilities like Kallang Polyclinic and Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
  • Educational Institutions: Nearby reputable schools such as Bendemeer Primary School, Hong Wen School, and St. Andrew’s Junior College.

The application process for Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II BTO

You can apply for the June 2024 BTO exercise online via the HDB Flat Portal from 19 June 2024 to 26 June 2024. However, there’s bound to be high competition for Tanjong Rhu Riverfront I & II as it is a PLH flat, similar to Holland Vista BTO, so to improve your chances of securing a flat in the June 2024 BTO exercise, you should consider applying for units in non-mature towns like Jurong East, Woodlands, and Yishun, where the supply is higher.

Application rates of past BTO projects in Kallang/Whampoa

4-room flats have seen the highest application rates in past BTO projects in Kallang/Whampoa. For example, the 477-unit Farrer Park Arena and the 1,422-unit Farrer Park Fields/Rajah Summit saw the highest oversubscription rates from Second-Timer Families at 30.7 and 32.6 respectively. Similarly, 3-room flats were just as popular among the same group of BTO buyers.

When and why you should consider a resale HDB flat

  • If you need to move in immediately and cannot wait for the completion of a BTO flat, a resale flat allows for immediate occupancy.
  • If you prefer a mature estate with established amenities like schools, shopping centers, and transportation networks, a resale flat offers a convenient and vibrant living environment.
  • If you have specific preferences in terms of unit size, layout, floor level, and location, a resale flat offers a wider range of options than a BTO.
  • If you value a sense of belonging and an opportunity to connect with an established community, a resale flat is typically integrated into existing neighborhoods.
