Singapore govment release news upcoming HDB flats 2021
Possible upcoming / future BTO locations
Many people come here from google searches like “2021 BTO list” or “BTO launch location 2021” some message me to ask locations, project name, prices, etc.
You can see BTO location on map and flat types available 6 months ahead on HDB InfoWeb > Upcoming Sales Launch. Project name, prices and the exact day of launch are not known until the actual day of launch. Information shown on Upcoming Sales Launches is subject to change. Due to Coronavirus circuit breaker, May 2020 BTO been deferred and on 29 May HDB press release said that will be combined with August BTO.
In February 2021 HDB stopped showing BTO locations on map in upcoming sale launches, the only information available are towns for May and August 2021 BTO indicated in February 2021 BTO press release.
Beyond official info from HDB, you can expect BTO projects in every town with empty land parcels, use the map on homepage www.teoalida.com to spot empty parcels. We don’t know how soon a land parcel will be developed as BTO, some parcels can be sold to private developers instead.
Mature towns can get BTO flats too, on the land cleared via SERS. Example: Ang Mo Kio blk 247-252, Clementi blk 401-409, Sims Lane blk 54-60, or Kallang-Whampoa lands resulted from demolition of industrial areas.
HDB announced on 29 August 2013 the Public Exhibition on New Housing Areas: Bidadari (estate within Toa Payoh town, first BTO early 2015), Tampines North (first BTO late 2014), Punggol Matilda (first BTO Sep 2013). Tengah New Town was announced in 2016 and got first BTO launch in 2018. Next new towns to be announced in coming years may be Seletar and Simpang.
Flat supply for next year is announced every December. 2017 supply as announced in Dec 2016, will be 17000 BTO flats. This is a very low supply which contradict with a news from 2013: 700000 new homes by 2030.
Advice: if you applied for a BTO and a good queue number, don’t apply via SBF hoping to get a better flat in better location and available sooner, the battle for each flat in SBF in mature towns is huge and you risk to remain homeless! Well, you can apply via SBF in Sembawang where application rate hardly reach 1:1.
