District 28 : Living in greenery

Before the townships of Punggol and Sengkang sprung up, Seletar and Yio Chu Kang laid pretty much quietly in a green and nature-filled area of the island.

With the population in districts 19 and 28 increasing within the decade past, amenities and transport options have improved though the exclusive ambience remains mostly untouched. There is now the Seletar Mall, Greenwich V mixed-used development, and the upcoming development of the Seletar Aerospace Park in the vicinity.

Situated at the junction of Ang Mo Kio Street 66 and Yio Chu Kang Road is the Floraview and Flora Vista, a freehold 90-unit exclusive private residential project developed by Oxley Holdings Limited.  It also consists of 28 commercial units as a mixed-use development. Though exclusive often means remote or inaccessible, this project is a mere 15-minute drive away from the city centre via the Central Expressway and a smooth journey to Changi airport via the Seletar Expressway.

Popular with buyers, all of the one- and two-bedroom units at the Floraview and Flora Vista have sold out but the remaining 3-bedders and penthouses are available with prices starting at $896,000 for the 3-bedders. The 2-room penthouse units are highly affordable at $786,000 and $1.12 million for the 3-bedroom penthouses.

The district, being largely untouched and with mostly private residential units, has great growth potential. Other popular non-landed private properties in the district include The Greenwich, Seletar Park Residences and Seletar Springs.
