Punggol HDB Residential Site
Punggol Residences is a residential site handled by the Housing and Development Board (HDB) which is considered to be a premium contract. This is part of the development plan for the Punggol area that started in August 2007 and which came to be called the Remaking Our Heartlands plan.
This residential site was offered through a Build to Order (BTO) system which was first launched in July 30, 2009. Applications for the site were accepted until August 12 of the same year, and it was nearly a month later that the BTO balloting results were released. Punggol Residences is located at 271 Punggol Walk, which is within the Punggol Town Centre.
