So, you’re an aspiring resident of Bukit Panjang, a non-mature HDB estate that is still well-connected to the rest of the island via LRT and MRT services. The Petir Park Edge Bukit Panjang Dec 2023 BTO site is located in a part of Bukit Panjang that is well-connected by public transport links.
Residents will be connected to the rest of Singapore via the Downtown Line, which heads into the heart of the Central Business District (CBD). Alternatively, they can take the MRT to Choa Chu Kang MRT station on the North-South Line to connect to Johor Bahru in Malaysia for a day trip. Or they could head westwards to Jurong East, or further down to other heartland estates such as Bishan, Yishun and Ang Mo Kio.
While you’re not in the heart of Orchard Road, you still have your own estate’s multiple shopping malls and other amenities. The Petir Park Edge Bukit Panjang HDB BTO Dec 2023 site is also within walking distance of the Bukit Panjang town centre where the malls are located.
For those wary about meeting wild animals, this part of the HDB estate is still far from the green lungs, where various wildlife sightings have been reported and steps have also been taken to manage encounters. But these green spaces are still easily accessible for those who want a weekend walkathon or an evening jog.
The Petir Park Edge Bukit Panjang HDB BTO December 2023 launch has about 330 units of 2-room Flexi and 4-room flats. Being a smaller launch and only with 4-room units available, this launch is likely suited for smaller families.
Young families will also enjoy the serenity of this neighbourhood, coupled with choice schools such as CHIJ Our Lady Queen of Peace, Assumption English, Zhenghua Primary and quite a few MOE Kindergarten schools in the area.

Looking at the HDB median resale flat prices in the area, these HDB flats in Bukit Panjang will likely see a nice appreciation after their five-year Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) is over. The HDB Q3 2023 resale statistics reveal that the median resale price for 4-room HDB resale flats in Bukit Panjang was $508,000.
In addition, Bukit Panjang has also seen its first million-dollar flat transaction, with an executive apartment changing hands for $1.02 million in September 2023.

Petir Park Edge Bukit Panjang BTO Amenities (HDB BTO December 2023 Launch)

Families with young children will appreciate the fact that there are three MOE Kindergartens and a good number of primary schools in the area, with one just a minute’s walk from the estate.

MRT and LRT Stations Close By

The nearest LRT station is Petir LRT station, and if you walk a bit more, you can reach Bukit Panjang MRT station on the Downtown Line (DTL) on foot.

Conclusion: Is the Petir Park Edge Bukit Panjang December BTO 2023 Project Worth Balloting For?

Given that it’s the first launch here in over seven years, those who have been wanting to get a home in Bukit Panjang will be very excited to land a flat in this non-mature estate. However, given that it’s a small launch of 334 units, which comprise 2-room Flexi and 4-room units, it may be more suited for smaller families.
It is also quite a distance from central Singapore, so if you’re not fond of spending time on the public transport system, you might find the Bukit Panjang BTO launch unappealing.
But those who value being surrounded by greenery will appreciate the serenity Bukit Panjang has to offer.
