5. Yesterday, while proposing the third Option: Option 3: I mentioned to my client that one distinct disadvantage of Option 3 is that it is much harder to find a "proper" door for this kitchen set-up. But for the majority who does not air-con their living room and/or close their kitchen door on a daily basis is a non-issue.

In the selection of an HDB flat, often not only is the consideration of the dreaded afternoon sun.
But also; since all new generation HDB flats have a common shared rubbish chute; this has to be considered in additional to the many other factors.
If not, the "unluckier" ones end up purchasing a flat next to or in full-view of a rubbish chute.
For example, in this same Acacia in Yishun : Blks 505A, 505B, 505C and 505D would have even the larger HDB 5 bedroom flats next to a rubbish chute.

In fact, ranking a development is a serious business.
Besides the rubbish chute; there are even more considerations.
As the selection exercise of St George's Towers are in progress; I had to blur out the critical information of the best stacks in the development.
In the attachment, there are lots of other considerations even in a small development such as this one: St George's Towers Feng Shui
Considerations in a Ranking Exercise:
1. Afternoon sun?

2. View blocked by e.g. 8th storey MSCP & lamp posts on the top floor of the MSCP as a poison arrow?

3. Sharp corners of another block/stack

4. Rubbish chute beside unit or close-by?

5. Vehicle road noise. And also in this development e.g. stack #17 is a major in-out route to the MSCP car park.

6. Low floors in full view of elderly facilities. Remember the concern of the residents of a Chinese temple with urns etc..

7. Poison arrows if any from MSCP car park

8. Master bedroom wall soaking in afternoon sun and oozing out in the evening

9. Canal water flow affecting certain stacks : good or bad depending on the flow e.g. right to left or left to right of a stack

10. Suitability to breadwinners and family members

Even in a small development like St George's Towers; a proper Can or Cannot Buy evaluation of a specific bedroom type can take 6 or more hours to prepare, analyse, evaluate and provide recommendations.
If you have the time; you can see that lots of factors are taken into consideration in preparing the attachment.
As sale of HDB flats and/or BTOs are on a ballot system; this "one-piece" format is useful to have a global understanding of all stacks and even concerns (if any) of low floors looking towards e.g. car-park entrance, poor views, road noise etc.. etc...
Note: Additional detailed analysis under Annex A is not shown, here.

St George's Towers by ranking with Annex A and Annex B.

 

Annex B is useful as one can see where is the rubbish bin viz-a-viz the location of the main entrance / unit is.
