Nov 2021 Jurong West BTO Review: Great for Families With Schooling Children
It’s been two years since the last BTO launch in Jurong West. If you’re eyeing a unit in the area, then you will want to read all about the Nanyang Opal November 2021 BTO launch in Jurong West.
But with only 221 units up for selection, the chances of getting your hands on a unit may be slim. Nevertheless, here’s what the Nanyang Opal launch has to offer.

Although the Nanyang Opal Nov 2021 Jurong West BTO launch is a small project with only 221 units of 3-room and 4-room flats up for selection, it’s one of the best in terms of convenience to amenities.
The 91 3-room flats and 130 4-room flats are close to parks, convenience stores, eateries (including NTI Food Court), schools, health and medical care facilities, park connectors, the Jurong West Sports Centre, Nanyang Community Club, Pioneer MRT station, and Pioneer Mall, among others.
Pioneer MRT station is about 1.2km away (about 8 mins by bus), and the station is one stop from Boon Lay MRT, where there’s Jurong Point, Jurong Medical Centre, Jurong Central Park, Boon Lay Bus Interchange, and Boon Lay Town Centre. Furthermore, Boon Lay MRT station will be a future interchange station on the Jurong Region Line (JRL) by 2027.
For those who drive, you can take the nearby Pan Island Expressway (PIE) to travel to the CBD via the Central Expressway (CTE), reaching Raffles Place in about 35 minutes.
Schools within 500m include Juying Primary School, Juying Secondary School, and Xingnan Primary School, while educational institutions such as Frontier Primary School, Jurong West Primary School, One World International School, and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) aren’t too far away. The last of which may be important to those who are looking to rent out their unit/room to students once the flat has reached its Minimum Occupation Period (MOP).
Similar to the last Jurong West BTO sales exercise in 2019, Boon Lay Glade and Jurong West Jewel, the prices of the Nanyang Opal flats are not too expensive. Excluding grants, a 3-room flat is selling for $173,000 onwards and a 4-room is selling for $264,000 onwards.
Besides the limited number of flats, also note that there will be a Chinese temple next to the flats, which may be a consideration for some.
Having said that, with a relatively good location and accessible price, those who favour living in the west of Singapore will likely view these flats as desirable.

Prices for the Nanyang Opal November 2021 Jurong West start at $173,000 for a 3-room flat and $265,000 for a 4-room flat.
According to the Q3 2021 HDB Price Index, the median price for a 3-room flat is $292,000 while a 4-room flat is $435,000. On the lower end, resale flat prices in that area are about $350,000 (3-room flat) and $395,000 (4-room flat).
All in all, if you’re planning to sell after the MOP, you could also expect good capital gains.
