Part 2 - Case Study: History of the plot of land: The Garden Residences

In 1966, Serangoon Garden Government High School occupies this plot of land where The Garden Residences occupies today.

The Garden Residences will only be occupying the former Serangoon Garden Government High School site. Thus, the school buildings have to be demolished before this development could be built on this land.

While the other former site: a vocational school: Lichfield Secondary Vocational School site is today a vacant plot of land.

(Note: Vocational Schools were the forerunner of today's ITE. Where not so academic students get to learn tradework such as metallugy and woodworking)

In 2007, the above two schools were taken over temporarily by Paya Lebar Methodist Girls Secondary School:-

Above, prior to 2007, Serangoon North Avenue 1 was known as Jalan Hwi Yoh. And The Garden Residences may have it's address read as above instead of Serangoon North Ave 1.

As you know, today The Garden Residences is currently being built on this former school land. This is why the odd shaped plot of land:-

The existing Sri Darma Muneeswaran Temple is right at the apex of the plot of land. And quite a distance away from The Gardens Residences. Most likely this plot will be another development in the near future.

Launching soon....

Part 3 - Reading between the lines of the Sales Brochure of The Garden Residences

1. One major consideration is: "Where is the external common central rubbish bin(s) on each storey?"

2. The developer does not show the location of the external central rubbish bin(s).

3. Before signing the dotted line.. do check with the Sales Agent. In many recent past developments like the Hillion at Bukit Panjang and even 100 Palm Residences, many "wise" potential buyers have successfully requested and viewed the exact location of the common central corridor.

4. Don't want to get an unexpected surprise to find the central rubbish bin beside one's main door! Or possible not facing the main door. Both in terms of Feng Shui and may affect future resale value or even resale potential (if any)...

5. There are more considerations like the location of the central rubbish bin collection point(s) the electrical sub-station(s) and even emergency diesel generations etc....

6. I have complied a useful set of key considerations.. they are not exhaustive but rather.. is good to know...

Part 4 - close look at Sale Brochure Site plan features and functional areas in the development

456316022_TheGardenResidencesSiteplan.thumb.png.fa8795d448ce37ccd0004062cc4d33bf.png

1. Red flags are the location of the Bin Centre, Substations. Some larger developments also have an Emergency Backup Generator Set.

342884633_TheGardenResidencesBinCentre.thumb.png.16d9a61a4d5f361d329a7fedb2053752.png

1.1. A unit Block 9 stack #43 close-by to a Bin Centre is a no-no. Even overlooking or have a view of the Bin Centre is the last thing one should consider.

1.2. Although there is no concrete evidence of the effects of living close to a substation; however, there is a strong stigma attached by many that it is inauspicious to live next to or close to a substation. Since this is the case, why  give yourself the unnecessary concern. It may also affect the subsequent resale value of the unit.

1.3 This is a huge piece of equipment. Often, it is placed at a distance away from the blocks. Rarely used. But they do test this equipment once in a while. Here, the fumes from the burning of diesel oil can be smelled.. 

2. Are you addicted to BBQ smell coming from BBQ Pavilion & Garden Grill.  Or love the aroma of BBQ or cooking smells. If so, it is a happy marriage. But many prefer not to have a unit close-by to this. As the smell can last quite long especially the winds blow into one's unit. 

2.1. For privacy issues, many would prefer to not purchase a unit facing or beside a BBQ , Cooking or Dining pavilion. Here, invited guests or activities may disturb our privacy. And such pavilions may be a magnet for ants etc...

3.  Kids Pool, Splash pool, Tennis court.

3.1. Some want a quiet weekend and on public holidays. If you are the kind who likes serenity; then best to stay clear of units facing and even up to 8th storey high near to such places of activities.

3.2 However, if you love such sounds.. go ahead.. make your day.. not mine or ours...

Part 5 - Poison arrow or sharp corner from Block 1 stack 11 aimed towards Block 7 stack 36 and from Block 5 stack 28 aimed towards Block 1 stack 09

154119565_PoisonarrowfromBlock1stack11.thumb.png.14d05fdd551e26b17de2288bbb580fc3.png

 

1. Two stacks in The Garden Residences that has a sharp corner aimed towards a stack: 

Block 1 stack 11 aimed towards Block 7 stack 36. 
Block 5 stack 28 aimed towards Block 1 stack 09.

2. Given this consideration, try not to select these two stacks, if possible. 

3. For now, it is difficult to determine whether this sharp corner is aimed towards any opening of stack 36. 

4. What happens if the sharp corner is aimed towards an opening?

4.1 If the opening is a window, less of an issue as one may draw the curtains or blinds. But if the sharp corner is aimed towards an opening such as a living room balcony opening, then this is harder or that it may be impractical to draw down the external blinds 24/7 unless one really don't mind this.

5. The only way to know is when the development has T.O.P. and one is inside the unit to do a check.

Part 6 - External Shapes and Forms Feng Shui, the flow of Qi: Of funnels & bottle necks

709630648_TheGardenResidencesqiflow.thumb.png.17d03bb3aa4eccb23f8dfabae894b7eb.png

1. There is both a funnel effect and a bottleneck at location marked as "X". 

2. There is the good and bad news:

3. The good news: 

In general low wind conditions, such as a "nice" calm and constant cooling wind will be great Feng Shui for Block 1 stack #11, Block 7 stacks #29 and #36.

3.1 The bad news:

However, if the gust of wind is too strong especially where things in stack #11's open yard starts to "fly" then this will greatly affect both health and wealth for the family members living there.
