The upcoming BTO 2023 Feb launch will offer about 4,410 flats across four estates to choose from and we’re here to help.
The launch will see projects in mature estates such as Kallang/Whampoa and Queenstown up for grabs alongside flats in non-mature estates such as Jurong West and Tengah.
Thinking of applying? Here’s a quick overview.
2023 Feb BTO Launch Overview
|Jurong West||270 flats|
The 2023 Feb BTO Kallang/Whampoa and Queenstown launches are likely to fall under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model. If we were to place bets on which of the two launches will get the lion’s share of attention, we’ll pick Kallang/Whampoa, which is next to Little India MRT station.
The second upcoming BTO 2023 Feb Kallang/Whampoa site will be located between the Kallang River and Sungei Whampoa waterways, some distance away from Toa Payoh MRT station. While it is not confirmed, this site may not fall under the PLH model.
For buyers on a budget, the upcoming BTO 2023 Feb Tengah launch is likely to be the most affordable pick of the bunch. However, buyers may have to be prepared to put up with construction for many years after moving in due to the neighbourhood being under heavy development.
Jurong West BTO 2023 Feb Review
|Name of the Jurong West Feb 2023 BTO||TBA|
|Address||Jurong West Street 93|
|Flat Types||3-room, 4-room|
|Nearest MRT station||Pioneer MRT|
|Nearest amenities||Jurong West Sport Centre, NTUC Health Nursing Home, Jurong West Hawker Centre, Pioneer Mall, Nanyang Community Club|
|Nearby schools||Pioneer Primary School, Juying Secondary School, Frontier Primary School, Jurong West Primary school, Jurong West Secondary School, Xingnan Primary School, Boon Lay Secondary School, River Valley High School|
HDB BTO Feb 2023 Jurong West Map
Located on Jurong West Street 93, about eight minutes’ walk from Pioneer MRT station on the East West Line, the February BTO Jurong West site is located just north of Jurong West’s industrial swathe. Those looking to snag a home near the Jurong Lake District may consider this site.
There is a wide selection of schools in the vicinity, including River Valley High School. Sports and fitness lovers will enjoy the BTO launch’s proximity to Jurong West Sport Centre and the Jurong West Park Connector. NTU students also take the 179 feeder bus from the Pioneer MRT station bus stop into the school.
Only about 270 3-room and 4-room flats will be available in this launch. The absence of 5-room BTO flats might exclude larger households, and the limited supply could cause these flats to be challenging to successfully ballot for.

Kallang/Whampoa BTO 2023 Feb Review
|Name of the Kallang/Whampoa Feb 2023 BTO Launch||TBA|
|Address||Jalan Rajah / Bordered by Race Course Road, Farrer Park Road and Hampshire Road|
|Flat Types||3-room, 4-room / 2-room Flexi, 3-room, 4-room|
|Nearest MRT station||Toa Payoh / Little India|
|Nearest amenities||Toa Payoh Swimming Complex, Toa Payoh Sports Hall, Toa Payoh Stadium, SAFRA (Toa Payoh), Zhongshan Mall, Toa Payoh Public Library / Tekka Centre, Little India Arcade, Pek Kio Community Centre, Mustafa Centre, City Square Mall|
|Nearby schools||Bendemeer Secondary School, Hong Wen School, Northlight School / Farrer Park Primary School|
HDB BTO Feb 2023 Kallang/Whampoa Map
There will be two Kallang/Whampoa sites in the February BTO launch, housing a total of about 1,770 flats.
The first site (the ‘Jalan Rajah site’), consisting of about 500 3-room and 4-room flats, is located on Jalan Rajah and bordered to the north by the Kallang River.
The second site (the ‘Race Course Road site’), consisting of about 1,270 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room flats, is bordered by Race Course Road and under-construction roads Farrer Park Road and Hampshire Road.
The Jalan Rajah site enjoys a scenic location by the Kallang River and is about 14 minutes’ walk from Toa Payoh MRT station on the North-South line (NSL). It is also within walking distance of a plethora of sporting facilities, including Toa Payoh Swimming Complex, Toa Payoh Sports Hall and Toa Payoh Stadium. On the downside, it is not as centrally located as the Race Course Road site and there are not many schools in the vicinity.
By comparison, the Race Course Road site occupies a much more desirable location in the heart of the city, at right beside Little India MRT station, 12 minutes’ walk from Farrer Park MRT station and 17 minutes’ walk from Jalan Besar MRT station. An enviable spread of amenities can be found within walking distance, including Tekka Centre and Little India Arcade.
HDB has not yet announced whether the Kallang/Whampoa sites will fall under the PLH model (more details will be released closer to the launch date). But it’s likely that the Race Course Road site will fall under the PLH model. If we reference the Nov 2022 BTO launches, it’s likely the Jalan Rajah site will not be released under the PLH model.

Queenstown BTO 2023 Feb Review
|Name of the Queenstown Feb 2023 BTO Launch||TBA|
|Address||Commonwealth Avenue West, Ghim Moh Link|
|Flat Types||3-room, 4-room|
|Nearest MRT station||Dover|
|Nearest amenities||The Star Vista, Ghim Moh Road Market, Holland Village, Rochester Village, Ulu Pandan Community Club|
|Nearby schools||Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), Fairfield Methodist School, New Town Secondary School, Anglo-Chinese Junior College, Singapore Polytechnic, UWCSEA, ESSEC Business School, INSEAD, School of Science and Technology|
HDB BTO Feb 2023 Queenstown Map
With only about 730 3-room and 4-room Queenstown flats up for grabs this time around, expect the competition to be intense.
The BTO launch will be located on Commonwealth Avenue West and Ghim Moh Link, about seven minutes’ walk from Dover MRT station and 14 minutes’ walk from Buona Vista MRT station.
Other than the city centre being a direct MRT ride away on the East West Line, the site’s proximity to attractive amenities and lifestyle destinations such as Ghim Moh Market and Holland Village make it a key draw.
For parents with kids, there is an abundance of sought-after schools in the vicinity such as Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Fairfield Methodist Secondary School, as well as tertiary institutions like Singapore Polytechnic (SP), School of Science and Technology (SST) and ESSEC Business School.
There is a possibility that the Queenstown project will be affected by the PLH model. Stay tuned to find out when the HDB releases further information.

Tengah BTO 2023 Feb Review
|Name of the Tengah Feb 2023 BTO Launch||TBA|
|Address||Tengah Boulevard, Brickland Crescent, Brickland Rise|
|Flat Types||2-room Flexi, 3-room, 4-room, 5-room|
|Nearest MRT station||Choa Chu Kang West (u/c)|
|Nearest amenities||Keat Hong Shopping Centre|
|Nearby schools||Choa Chu Kang Primary School, Concord Primary School, Dunearn Secondary School, St Anthony’s Primary School|
HDB BTO Feb 2023 Tengah Map
The February 2023 BTO launch will see yet another batch of flats in Tengah becoming available. About 1,640 2-room Flexi, 3-room, 4-room and 5-room flats will be released in this new residential area, currently undergoing aggressive development.
The BTO site will be located on future roads Tengah Boulevard, Brickland Crescent and Brickland Rise, in under 20 minutes’ walking distance from the future Jurong Region Line (JRL) MRT station Choa Chu Kang West, expected to open in 2027.
The Singapore government has big plans to turn Tengah into a sustainable town with lots of green spaces. However, BTO applicants should know that they will have to put up with extensive construction and a lack of established amenities until Tengah comes into its own, which could take many years.
On the bright side, Tengah’s affordable prices could make it a key draw for cash-strapped young families looking for a starter home. And like the case of the last Tengah BTO launch, there may be a possibility that this launch will see shorter estimated completion times.
