There are so many amazing food spots to be found in Geylang. Now you can apply to live in supper heaven, because Geylang is included in the November 2017 Build-to-Order (BTO) exercise! Flats ranging from 2-room Flexi to 4-room are affordably priced from as low as $161,000 and $517,000 respectively, after housing grants.

Eunos Court comprises 742 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room flats. Facilities available at this development include a supermarket, childcare centre and roof gardens.

The development is a 2-minute walk from Eunos MRT station and bus interchange, and 2-minute drive away from the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE). If convenience is a priority, then this project is the one for you, because you are literally 12 minutes away from City Hall by train!
Eunos MRT station is only a stone’s throw away from Eunos Court
Since this development is located in a mature estate, there are plenty of amenities to meet your day-to-day needs. An existing supermarket is just a 5-minute walk away, underneath Block 5 Eunos Crescent. Beside it, the wet market and food centre is great for fresh produce and meals.
Neighbourhood shops provide for most of your daily needs
Foodies will be delighted by the many hawker centres around the area
For young couples who like to plan far ahead, Eunos Primary School is just around the corner for you to enrol your (future) kids.
Eunos Primary School is within walking distance from Eunos Court
The famous Geylang Serai Market and Haig Road Market are about a 10-minute walk away too. So you will love this place if you are a foodie who absolutely cannot live without supper (think 24-hour food hangouts like Mr Teh Tarik and Alwadi). Other shopping malls around the area include Joo Chiat Complex, Tanjong Katong Complex, and City Plaza.
Another great thing about Geylang is that it is always bustling with activities. There is an event almost every month at the open field beside Eunos MRT, and the annual Hari Raya light-up along Sims Avenue is also right outside your doorstep.
Now that was a lot of information to digest, but lucky for you I have marked down all the key spots in the map below.
Want to apply for a flat in Eunos? Information on the BTO flats on offer is available on HDB InfoWEB so you can check out all the details online.
Eligible first-timer families can receive the Additional CPF Housing Grant of up to $40,000.
Flexi Flats and Fresh Start Housing Scheme
2-room Flexi flat prices are determined after taking into account factors such as the lease tenure, and whether buyers are first-timers, second-timers, or others.
Families who are on the Fresh Start Housing Scheme can also apply for short-lease 2-room Flexi flats. The Fresh Start Housing Scheme is meant to help second-timer families with young children, who stay in public rental flats, to own a flat again.
Useful Tips for Flat Buyers
- Consider applying for a BTO flat in non-mature towns to enjoy a higher chance of success in securing a flat.
- You can apply for only 1 flat type/ category in 1 town.
- Regular updates on the application numbers for the various flat types/ towns will be published on the HDB InfoWEB, so do check for updates before submitting your application
- Applicants are shortlisted using a computer ballot; they are not processed on a first come first served basis. So there is no need to rush to submit your application.
- If you wish to take up an HDB housing loan for your flat purchase, you need to produce a valid HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) Letter when you book a flat. Do check your loan eligibility and apply for an HLE letter at www.hdb.gov.sg/hleapply.
Next Sales Launch
Applications for the November Sales Launch will close on Monday, 20 November 2017.
There will be another sales launch coming up in February 2018, with about 3,600 flats in Choa Chu Kang, Geylang, Tampines and Woodlands. A concurrent Re-Offer of Balance Flats exercise will also be held then. Be sure to check the MyNiceHome website and follow us onFacebook for the latest updates!
