Compassvale Boardwalk at Sengkang - May 2012 BTO

Our nest is located at Compassvale Boardwalk, 15 minutes walk from Sengkang MRT station :)
Nearest LRT is Cheng Lim LRT, 1 stop away from Sengkang Station :)
If you are applying for BTO HDB flat, you may want to look at our post -> HERE 
to get a better idea of BTO application process and how much to pay during the application :)
That is only our 2 cents.. but hope it helps you a little :)
This is how our housing estate looks like..
I love the theme - Kelong :) Kampong theme..hehe
Anyway once you select your unit, you can **join your Flat's FaceBook Page to have more first hand information as well as to see your flat building progress :)
Some of the pics below is from our Flat's FaceBook Page - Compassvale Boardwalk Family :)
Thanks to our very "ON" neighbours for sharing the pictures with us :)
At times we also go to the block opposite our housing estate to take pics of the building progress to share in the group :) Hope to know our future neighbours and have gatherings after our house come :)

The exact location :)
Tough choice when comes to selection of unit..
We had a hard time deciding.. My fiance is the decision maker.. so I just listen to him :)

We decided to take 5 room flat, so we can only choose the "green units"from the pic on top.. the "yellow units" is 4 rooms..

We went Toa Payoh HDB hub to look at the model almost every now and then..
To have a better idea of which unit to select.. "Kia Su" Singaporean.. haha

Actual building progress of our home :)
Compassvale Boardwalk comprises five 15-storey residential blocks of 474 units of 4- and 5-room standard flats..

Rainy day.. quite hard to take pic.. we waited for the rain to stop to take some pics :)

Still see people working on rainy day :)
Our Estimated date of completion is on 31st Oct 2015, 4th Qtr 2015 :)
We wish that the workers can build faster, so that we can get our key hopefully by early 2015, and move in by mid 2015. Nevertheless, to everyone building our house, your safety is still the top priority! =)

This is our floorplan :) We have lots of ideas on how we want to design our house already..
We **didn'opt for HDB floorings.. so our house will be empty.. start from scratch! :)

Looking forward to our very 1st Property :)
