Tampines GreenView and Tampines GreenVerge
The projects in Tampines are the only ones from a mature estate in the most recent launch of the HDB BTOs. Tampines GreenView is located between Tampines North Drive 1 and Tampines Avenue 11 while Tampines GreenVerge is located along Tampines Avenue 9. Both projects feature 3-, 4-, 5-Room units, and there will be 3Gen units available at Tampines GreenVerge. There will be 714 units to choose from at Tampines GreenView, and 2,022 units at Tampines GreenVerge.
Tampines GreenView is further away from Tampines MRT when compared to Tampines GreenVerge. Tampines GreenVerge features a childcare centre and shop within the premises, making it convenient if you have younger children. Tampines GreenVerge has a better location when compared to Tampines GreenView, with a park to the east of the estate, as well as being closer to the MRT station and TPE exit.
Tampines central has all the makings of a great mature estate – well-developed areas, amenities and schools. However, due to the size and number of units available, the completion time for this project is the longest, with Tampines GreenView slated for completion in 3Q 2019 and Tampines GreenVerge for 3Q 2021.
Prices start from $202,000 for the 3-Room, $289,000 for 4-Room and $398,000 for 5-Room and $428,000 for 3Gen units.
Choose this if…
- You prefer staying in a mature estate
- You value nearby amenities
- You don’t mind waiting longer for your new home
