HDB Tampines GreenGem BTO launched in November 2018

Recommended Posts

Part 1: Introduction & Resources

Green Living
2-room Flexi, 3-, 4-, and 5-room flats
Tampines GreenGem is bounded by Bedok Reservoir Road and Tampines Street 96. It is located near Tampines West MRT station and Bedok Reservoir Park, and comprises 13 residential blocks ranging from 13 to 17 storeys. You can choose from 1,086 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-, 4-, and 5-room flats.

Tampines GreenGem's name is inspired by the development's nearby surroundings, such as the tranquil Bedok Reservoir Park, park connectors, and other nature spots in the town.

Please refer to the site plan for the facilities to be provided in Tampines GreenGem. Facilities in this development will be opened to the public.

Part 2: Where are the recycle and common rubbish bins?

1. Nowadays it is common to find the common rubbish bin(s) beside the main door of Condos & ECs.

2. Never expected to find such a similar situation in a HDB block. But, shockingly stacks #125, #163, #165 & #167  share this same concern.

3. Furthermore, for example stacks #185, #107,  #119, & #201 have their main door pretty close to the common bin lobby.

Part 3: High floors preferred to avoid direct view into the Precinct Pavilion (PP) and/or prayers/chants/send--off during funerals/wakes.

1. Although the planners of this estate correctly place the two PPs at the edge of two opposing sides, however, around14 or more low floor stacks/units may be affected by such placements of PP. 

2. One cannot control such activities or discourage such "activities" during one's festive occasion such as on Chinese New Year etc...

3. The above is not exhaustive as some other LOW FLOOR stacks/units like #115, #125, #175 & #187 may also be affected by "noise pollution" whenever there may be activities of the above nature at either of the PPs.

Part 4: Such block layout designs may inadvertently create Sha Qi or Poison arrow of neighbouring block aimed towards it's neighbour.

Please note that I merely did a sampling. And this is not exhaustive. Can you spot similar poison arrows in this site?

Part 5: Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System or PWCS is another consideration when trying to select a "choice" unit.

1. In the August 2018 BTO sale, another Punggol HDB estate also spots this similar type of Bin Centre.

2. Again, do avoid a unit with it's frontage directly looking at this Bin Centre or near-by to it843251080_ALARGEBINCENTRE.png.1b507d95cedf072f3289ccbbefe309f2.png.

3. By right, this practise was popular with HDB flats that T.O.P. in the 1970's and 1980's. But then it was manual collection from each Block/stack and brought to this holding area awaiting the bin trucks to off-load the rubbish into these trucks.

4. However, it seems that similar to several recent condos/ECs, this HDB development also uses "Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System" = PWCS. Thus the need to have this ONE-STOP collection point.

Location: The Venue condo:-

5.1. And unlike the regular manual clearing of rubbish, this type of bins at each block has lots of CAUTIONS. For example the above signs shows there are 12 things to take note of.

5.2. If I remembered vaguely, at The Venue, the last time I visited this condo, the Managing Agent placed a notice to remind residents "TO BE GENTLE" to this system!

5.3. Although it saves on productivity; again, this very much depends on residents co-operation. Else, this system is a huge burden especially to clear the "STUCK" waste!

6. If I were to purchase a unit here, I would consider this as part of my decision making. Unless the Town Council reduces the conservancy charges in line with this savings. But if the maintenance fee is no change from other developments without this PWCS,  hmm......

P.S. An earlier BTO launch also has a similar Bin centre as HDB Tampines GreenGem. This development is called HDB Punggol Point Woods BTO launched in August 2018:-
