A Comprehensive List of Upcoming BTO 2023 Launches

Maelyn Lagman

There’s a lot to look forward to in the coming new year, but nothing’s quite as exciting as getting first dibs on the 2023 BTO launches. So to prepare you for what’s going to be a bloody battle for the best units, we’ve compiled a definitive list of everything you need to know about the upcoming BTO 2023 launches. We’ll update this page as we get more information, but for now, let’s talk about the Feb 2023 BTO and May 2023 BTO launches.

Click to be directed to the upcoming BTO 2023 launches:

Feb 2023 BTO | May 2023 BTO | August 2023 BTO | November 2023 BTO

But first, here are a few basic facts about BTO flats

  1. BTO flats are launched 4 times a year — February, May, August, and November. This is when HDB announces the estates in which the BTO projects will be located.
  2. The actual BTO projects are announced 3 months before the launch, so you’ll have ample time to plan and decide which town and flat type you’ll go for.
  3. To book a BTO flat, you will need to ballot for your choice unit. The balloting outcome will be released after about 2 months.
  4. If your ballot was successful, you’ll get a queue number, which will determine the order in which you can book a flat in relation to other buyers.
  5. If you have not been invited to book a flat —  not shortlisted for booking or all available flats have been taken up before your queue number is due — your application is considered unsuccessful. 
  1. When applying for non-mature estates, first-timer families/ couples get additional chances to apply again if the first 2 applications for non-mature BTOs were unsuccessful.

23,000 BTO flats expected in 2023

No matter what happens in the property market, BTO flats remain to be a popular choice for home buyers here in Singapore — especially amongst newly married couples looking for their first marital home. That’s why a whopping 23,000 BTO flats will be launched in 2023. HDB is also prepared to launch up to 10,000 more flats in total from 2021-2025, subject to prevailing demand.

We suggest getting a head start on your property planning now so that you’re armed with not just your top BTO picks, but also some backup options in case there’s high demand for the area and unit you’re looking for. And it’s bound to happen. You know this. You’ve seen it before.

The BTO application rates this year were exceptionally high as most BTO launches were oversubscribed. Take a look at this data: There were about 400 4-room BTO units on offer at the Central Weave project in Ang Mo Kio (as part of the August 2022 BTO launch) and over 4,000 applicants. Those are crazy numbers. The future BTO launches won’t be any different, so you have to be ready come launch time.

Some things to take note of about the Feb 2023 BTO launch:

Feb 2023 BTO launchKey details about the upcoming BTO projects
Kallang/ WhampoaThere will be 2 BTO projects released in the Kallang/Whampoa area, both of which enjoy a full array of amenities. Though nothing’s been announced yet, we speculate that the Race Course/Farrer Park Road site will fall under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) scheme as it’s near the city centre. 

The site at Jalan Rajah is a bit further away from public transport, but the CTE and PIE are not too far away for those with cars. In fact, parents may like this site for the many schools within a 2km radius.
TengahAs the Tengah area remains to be largely undeveloped today, you may have to contend with ongoing construction when you move in to your BTO years later as the town slowly comes into shape.
QueenstownExpect some heated competition for the Queenstown BTO project as there are only 730 3- and -4-room units on offer. The site’s proximity to lifestyle amenities, like Holland Village, may draw more buyers in. This BTO may also fall under the PLH model, like the Kallang/Whampoa one.
Jurong WestThe Jurong West BTO project is one you shouldn’t look over as you will get first mover’s advantage to Jurong Lake District, which has been planned to be Singapore’s 2nd Central Business District. But this BTO project has the least amount of units on offer, and only a unit mix of 3- and -4-rooms, so larger households may have a harder time balloting, or may not even consider this project.
