The Choa Chu Kang HDB BTO Feb 2024 project comprises about 460 units across 2-room Flexi, 3-room and 4-room flats. It is right beside the Rail Corridor. With green lungs at your doorstep, residents get unparalleled and unspoilt views of the surrounding greenery right from the comfort of home, and can also take advantage of the park connectors to get around.
While the surrounding nature can be a draw for some, a drawback is that the nearest Bukit Panjang MRT station is a short bus ride away. There are still bus stops and of course, the Kranji Expressway which means easy access to other parts of Singapore.
Nevertheless, families have a variety of school options in the vicinity from primary and secondary school, all the way to junior college, as well as facilities including retail options, and sports and public facilities.

The last rounds of Choa Chu Kang BTO flats were in October 2023, August 2022, and November 2021 (with only 2-room Flexi units). Our estimates are based on inflation and are just meant to be a guide for budgeting considerations.
The upcoming Choa Chu Kang HDB BTO Feb 2024 project has 460 units across 2-room Flexi, 3-room, and 4-room configurations. It is hard to estimate the application rates, but because the area in the immediate vicinity is still developing, applicants may likely have a good chance to get a unit.
Its affordability could be a huge draw as they are way lower than many BTO launches in more central locations. The fact that the area is developing is also another draw for those planning for the future and wanting to set up their home base in a new and upcoming area that’s served with all the facilities and amenities in the vicinity. Plus point as it’s near to JB for those who like to hop over for cheaper shopping.
Based on the HDB Q3 2023 median resale flat prices in the area, the HDB flats in Choa Chu Kang will likely see some appreciation after their Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) is up. Prices are still considerably low considering it’s a non-mature estate and competitive with other non-mature estates.

We used an interest rate of 2.6% and a Loan-to-Value (LTV) limit of 80% for the HDB loan example calculations and an interest rate of 3.6% and an LTV of 75% for the bank loan example calculations. The above example calculations are based on a 25-year loan. However, if you can make higher monthly repayments, you may want to opt for a shorter loan (and pay lesser interest!).

Choa Chu Kang BTO February 2024 Amenities (HDB BTO February 2024 Launch)
Scenic Natural Surroundings
Proximity to nature with the rail corridor, Sungei Pang Sua Canal and various park connectors offer residents a plethora of reasons to get out into the great outdoors. There are also plans to introduce more greenery to the Pang Sua Canal and develop a new extension to Villa Verde Park under the KJE for more greenery and recreation. Coupled with the low-density surroundings, being an early mover in the area could serve you well in the future.
Planned Developments in the Works
HDB has announced plans to build mixed-use developments with commercial, dining and transport options next to the Choa Chu Kang and Yew Tee MRT stations. There will also be new active spaces, a new town plaza, and retail and dining options planned for the bustling Choa Chu Kang Town Centre.
Schools for all Ages
With a variety of primary schools and secondary schools, as well as a junior college, your child’s education is covered throughout his/her developmental years.

This is a new launch in Choa Chu Kang since the last one in October 2023, so if you didn’t get a chance to snag the previous one, you can get ready for this launch.

A key part of the rejuvenation is also a new Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) to be located next to the existing Choa Chu Kang MRT station, as well as more retail and dining options with a hawker centre and a new pedestrian mall.
Price-wise, the flats are priced competitively as it’s in a non-mature estate.

BTO Application Process Updates
All BTO applicants will now need to apply for the HDB Flat Eligibility (HFE) letter before applying for their desired BTO project.
If you’re thinking of applying for an upcoming BTO flat in the February BTO 2024 launch, you should have already applied for and received your valid HFE letter; while HDB will take up to 21 working days to process your application, they may face delays during peak periods (e.g. BTO launch weeks).
Now, first-timer BTO applicants who reject their BTO ballots will also be considered second-timer applicants for one full year. During their second BTO application attempt, if they reject another BTO ballot, they won’t be able to apply for any BTO flats in the following year.
Furthermore, the Family and Parenthood Priority Scheme (FPPS) has officially replaced the Parenthood Priority Scheme (PPS). This new HDB scheme includes a new applicant priority subset, the First-Timer (Parents and Married Couples) category, or FT(PMC). Up to 40% of BTO flats in each sales exercise will be reserved for eligible FT(PMC) applicants.
Lastly, if you are an FT(PMC) unsuccessful for two or more tries (in a non-mature estate), you will receive one more chance per subsequent BTO application. This rule was introduced to help those unsuccessful in repeated balloting attempts.
