Punggol Waterfront & Straits View BTO Site Plan Analysis

Punggol BTO Site Plan Analysis

Punggol Northshore, one of Punggol’s signature waterfront housing districts and will be one of the first public housing estate to come equipped with smart technologies. The two projects are located along Punggol Way, next to Samudera LRT station. The flats are equipped with additional infrastructure (such as additional power and data points)  to facilitate the installation of smart home systems such as Home Energy Management System or monitoring systems. More details can be found here.

What are the potential renovation considerations for these future homeowners of the Punggol units?

Let us review the respective site plans of Waterfront I and Waterfront II ….
