HDB Rivervale Shores BTO August 2017 launch

HDB Rivervale Shores BTO August 2017 launch

The planners of this development has given much thought in how to maximise as many stacks/units as possible to enjoy the view of Serangoon Reservoir.

The planners of HDB Rivervale Shores did this by adopting a unique and less common snake like configuration for block layouts:-

Thus at the West end starting with block 170; this snake undulates along 170A, 170B, 171, 171A and ending at 174A.

This snake feature is not perfect. As it does result in e.g. Block 175B stack 338 has sharp corner(s) that may be aimed towards stack 340 of the same block.

Similarly, block 174B's stack 302 has sharp corner(s) aimed towards stack 304.

Stacks like 340 and 304 can see the "under-skirts" of 338  and 302 respectively. What this means is that if those living in these units "turn-left" can see the service yards of their neighbours.

In addition, in the afternoon, sun may e.g. shine towards stack 338 and it may reflect sun-light towards stack 340:-

Case Study: The planners placement of Precinct Pavillion(s) or (PP) is in my opinion a tell-tale sign of the how considerate or inconsiderate the architect/planners.

Below: The three Precinct Pavillion  (PP) in this 2,500 unit estate: In red = 1, 2 and 3. With two of them taking advantage siting them at the noisy Tampines Expressway (TPE). Which means, units are futher away from the TPE.

This is considered a jumbo large development with 2,500 flats. Can understand the need for three (3) precinct pavillions PP.

I must say relatively the planners have done a reasonably good job. In that they had placed two of the pavillions on the out-skirts: marked in red as "2" Blk 175 and "3" at Blk 173:-

Can understand the constraints i.e. the final third precinct pavillion at Blk 170. This is the only PP that is visible to low floors of Block 170A stacks 28, 30, 32, 34, 36 and 38.

Thus best to avoid purchasing low floors at Block 170A stacks 28, 30, 32, 34, 36 and 38.

Although this mostly applies to condos and ECs, nevertheless if one has the time; some of the other resources such as poison arrow(s) may be useful ...

Based on past precedence. With this number of flats; most likely HDB could have farmed out the project to two or more different contracts?

Another consideration is that since these flats are only 18 storeys high;

I believe, a conservative estimate is that it could take 3 or 3.5 years or even 4 years to complete?

The longer to complete means that the 5 years sell-by date would be pushed further towards Period 9 Feng Shui.

Given this consideration, it is good to consider the purchase taking into consideration both Period 8 and 9 Feng Shui.
