HDB has launched 3,841 new flats in six projects located in the non-mature towns of Punggol, Sembawang, Woodlands and Yishun , and the mature town of Toa Payoh under the July 2014 Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise.
July 2014 BTO Exercise
A wide range of flats, including Studio Apartments (SAs), 2-room to 5-room flats, and Three-Generation (3Gen) flats, is offered to meet the diverse housing needs of first-timers, second-timers, multi-generation families, elderly and singles.
First-timers will continue to enjoy priority flat allocation, with at least 85% (for 4-room and 5-room) and 70% (for 2-room and 3-room) of the BTO public flat supply set aside for them. Eligible first-timer singles have the options of applying for a 2-room flat in Matilda Court, Waterway Sunray, Park Grove @ Yishun or Sun Natura.
Married/courting couples who wish to live together with their parent(s) can apply for a 3Gen flat at Park Grove @ Yishun. Other multi-generation families who wish to live near each other in the same BTO project can apply under the Multi-Generation Priority Scheme1(MGPS) for the flats in Matilda Court, Waterway Sunray, Park Grove @ Yishun, Sun Natura and Toa Payoh Apex.
 HDB will set aside up to 15% of the SAs, 2-room and 3-room flats in a BTO project (subject to a minimum of 20 units each) for parents applying under MGPS. The same number of 2-room and bigger flats will be set aside in the same BTO project for their married children.
The new Integrated Development in Woodlands – Kampung Admiralty – will offer two blocks of SAs comprising 48 SAs of 36 sqm and another 56 SAs of 45 sqm. This development is a special one-stop hub with an innovative design that brings together amenities such as a medical centre, eldercare facilities, a hawker centre and retail shops, with wide community spaces and generous green features, at the residents’ doorstep.
Residents will also enjoy special features such as a pneumatic waste system. The indicative monthly service and conservancy charges for the SAs in this development, payable to the Town Council, are $25.50 (for 36 sqm SA) and $36.50 (for 45sqm SA). 50% of the SAs at Kampung Admiralty will be set aside under the Studio Apartment Priority Scheme (SAPS) for elderly applicants who apply for an SA in the same town or within 2 km of their current flat/property, or apply for an SA to live near or with their parents/married child.
Eligible first-timer households can enjoy up to $60,000 of housing grants, comprising the Additional CPF Housing Grant (AHG) (up to $40,000) and the Special CPF Housing Grant (SHG) (up to $20,000).

Tapering of BTO Flat Supply
After ramping up the BTO building programme for three years, HDB has cleared the backlog of first-timer applicants. Hence, HDB has announced the transition to a more sustainable BTO building programme.
In the first half of 2014, HDB offered a total of 13,090 flats. These include 9,707 BTO flats and 3,383 balance flats offered in the May 2014 Sale of Balance Flats (SBF) exercise. First-timer BTO application rate continued to be stable, ranging from 1.0 to 1.7 times in the first half of 2014.
In the second half of 2014, HDB will offer another 12,700 BTO flats across various towns. This will bring the total number of BTO flats offered in the year to 22,400 units. 3-room and larger BTO flats will number 16,700 units, more than the estimated 15,000 new Singaporean family formations annually. 2-room flats and Studio Apartments will number 5,000 units and 700 units respectively, to cater to demand from low-income families, singles and the elderly.
For those asking when is the next HDB Sale of Balance Flats exercise, it is November 2014.
In addition, HDB will conduct a second Sales of Balance Flats SBF exercise with about 3,000 units in November 2014 to augment the housing supply. These will provide ample choices for Singaporeans looking to buy HDB homes.
Next BTO Launch in September 2014
In September 2014, HDB will offer about 4,510 BTO flats in Bukit Batok, Hougang, Jurong and Kallang Whampoa. More information on the flats to be offered under the September 2014 BTO exercise is available on the HDB InfoWEB.
