HDB May 2013 BTO - Woodlands - Pasture I & II

The BTO sits on the 2nd last piece of empty plot of land along Gambas Ave, flanked by Northoaks to the south-east and Woodlands Meadow BTO to the north-west.

The nearest MRT, Admiralty, is about 650m away and that is if you cut through the existing public housing

If you noticed, both MSCP are where they are to act as a buffer between the blocks and the new north-south expressway viaduct which in my opinion is the best place for both the MSCP.

However, when the MSCP is tucked to one side, it just mean that there will be blocks that requires some pretty good walking between them, so drivers do take note.

This BTO also comes with a commercial block that houses a supermarket, shops, a child care centre and even a restaurant. Pretty convenient.

Among its midst are also a nursing home and rental blocks.

Also, the drainage reserve on Pasture I runs underground resulting in an open space above ground. It remains to be seen what can that area be use for.

Layout is very much sardined up. Many units face each other and they are very close.

Choosing the best units is tough because there is not many but they have got to be those facing school and/or park, namely - 19, 03, 01, 15, 13, 16, 14, 28, 26. Although most will get the afternoon sun, it is the price to pay for unblock view.

For those facing internally, only 23 can make it. The rest is just too damn close.

If you do not mind the road noise and dust, then those higher units ( 7 floor and above) facing the MSCP or the commercial block will be great as it is quite a distance between the units and the future viaduct.
