While most of us are thinking about how to celebrate Chinese New Year, there is a group of people who have something else on their mind: BTO. February 2020 BTO launch will take place right after the Chinese New Year with 2 development locations being offered: Sembawang and Toa Payoh.
So, if you notice your friends and/or relatives looking a bit stressed during Chinese New Year, they are probably thinking about which BTO to choose to apply. In that case, you might want to point them to this article which helps them breakdown the details of each BTO launch that are coming up in February 2020.
Sembawang BTO: MRT Located Right At Your Doorstep
If you and your spouse are frequent public transport users, then this Sembawang BTO might be the one for you. That’s because this upcoming Sembawang BTO will be located right beside Canberra MRT. If that’s not convenient enough for you, then we don’t know what else is convenient for you.
One of the downsides of living in a non-mature estate like Sembawang is that you have to make a small sacrifice on the travelling time. It is not uncommon to have to take a ~20-minute bus ride from your home to the nearest MRT. However, with this Sembawang BTO, you can eliminate that last mile travelling time because you are staying right beside Canberra MRT!
Sembawang BTO: Comes With Amenities Like Canberra Plaza And Sembawang Shopping Centre
Besides having the convenience of the MRT right at your doorstep, the Sembawang BTO is also surrounded by great amenities. This Sembawang BTO is right in the middle of two small scale shopping centres, i.e. Sembawang Shopping Centre and the future Canberra Plaza. By the time the Sembawang BTO is complete, it will raise the amenities level by a notch.
Sembawang February 2020 BTO: Nearby Cluster Of Childcares Is Great For To-Be Parents

Nowadays, most couples have to both be working in order to cope with the rising cost of living in Singapore. Because of that, a critical feature that to-be parents often look out for is whether there are enough kids’ amenities around the BTO. One such amenity is the childcare.
That’s because, if you and your spouse are both working, you might require the help of childcare centres to take care of your child during day time. For to-be parents, the great news is that there is a cluster of childcare centres located 10-15 minutes away from the development, i.e. around Sembawang Road.

Toa Payoh BTO: Rare Feb 2020 BTO Project Launch For Mature Toa Payoh Estate
It is not every day that you get to see a BTO project launch for a mature estate like Toa Payoh. Unlike non-mature estate, the land is already very scarce in mature estates like Toa Payoh. One glance at the map and you can tell that a lot of areas within Toa Payoh is already fully occupied. That’s why a lot of couples are getting excited about this upcoming launch in Toa Payoh.
Toa Payoh BTO: Convenience For Drivers Vs Convenience For Public Transport Users
In this upcoming project launch in Toa Payoh, there are two different plots that are up for ballot. The first plot is located at Kim Keat Ave, which is right opposite Toa Payoh polyclinic. The second plot is located in between Caldecott MRT and Braddell MRT on Toa Payoh Rise.
For public transport users, the second plot is definitely your preferred choice because it is nicely situated between Caldecott MRT and Braddell MRT. You can take your pick of whether you want to travel via Circle line or North-South line, depending on your travel destination. Few HDB dwellers can claim the accolade of having two MRTs within walking distance to their home.
If you are planning to get a car, the first plot at Kim Keat Ave could fit your needs really well. While it isn’t in the vicinity of any MRTs, it is located right at the intersection of the Central Expressway (CTE) and Pan-Island Expressway (PIE). For couples who drive, this plot offers a good level of convenience.
