In this article, we’ll be focusing on the Kallang/Whampoa developments launched during the Feb 2019 BTO sales exercise: Kallang Breeze and Towner Crest. We previously wrote about Boon Lay Glade and Jurong West Jewel, the Jurong West BTOs that were launched during the Feb 2019 BTO sales exercise.

We visited the Kallang/Whampoa sites during a weekday evening at peak hours and found both areas to be relatively busy and bustling with activity. In addition to our observations of our site visit, this article will also be touching on the stacks and units to choose should you obtain a queue number, the result of which will most likely be released in mid-March.

Site Visit

Site
Lorong 3 Geylang, one of the roads bounding Kallang Breeze. A lot quieter than Sims Way and Sim Ave, although it is set to expand come 2020, so it might also get a bit busier.
One of the main cons for Kallang Breeze is its close proximity to the entrance of major expressways PIE and KPE. During our site visit, we found traffic to be very heavy. Kallang Breeze will also be located right next to MRT tracks. We could still hear the train when it passed by, although the noise barriers did alleviate the noise levels.
Site
Towner Crest’s main attraction is that it is located really close to Boon Keng MRT—the station entrance is just right across the road from it. However, Towner Crest is also located close to the very busy arterial road Serangoon Road.
