The 3 residential blocks at Tampines GreenCrest are designed to reflect the tranquillity of Tampines North, and come in varying heights ranging from 8 to 16 storeys. This creates an imagery of landscaped terraces, which gave inspiration to its name. You can choose from 346 units of 3-, 4-, and 5-room flats.

Located next to upcoming parks and Sungei Api Api, the roof gardens located above the Multi-Storey Car Park and in some residential blocks will serve as ideal spots to enjoy views of the surroundings.

Tampines GreenCrest comes with various recreational facilities, such as playgrounds and fitness stations. An eating house, minimart, shops, and a childcare centre are also conveniently located within the development. You will also find the upcoming Tampines North MRT station nearby..

Case Study 1A: The " Smart Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System (PWCS) to optimise the deployment of resources for cleaner and fuss-free waste disposal"

1. In my opinion, Hong Leong /CDL seems to be an early adopter of this Pneumatic Waste Collection System in many of of their new developments.

1.1. For this HDB BTO November 2020 launch, Champion Bliss, Urbanville, Tampines GreenCrest, Tampines GreenGlade, Tampines GreenOpal, Parc Residences all have this "SMART" PWCS.

1.2. Hopefully, the addition of the word SMART is something that is different from any of the past PWCS.

1.3. In fact, a PWCS or maybe not so "smart" ones will be installed at a condo = Forett , HDB Plantaion Village (Nov 2019), Tampines GreenWave, Tampines GreenGem etc...

2. For example, when The Venue (a CDL project) had just T.O.P.:-


3. This signage (see above) was displayed at the common bin. There are like Twelve (12) cautionary: what not to:-

4. There was a cautionary sign with lots of Don'ts.

5. A while back at The Criterion also by CDL. This notice (User guide) was displayed at the common bin area:-

6. Hopefully, the residents may come to terms to avoid doing all these don'ts:-


7. If managed properly, one can understand the savings in terms of maintenance costs (if any)... and good for the daily Cleaners.

8. Presently not all other Developers follow this lead. Thus with the manual system, although there are occasional issues; but less so.

Case Study 1B: Plight of residents of HDB Yuhua BTO which was installed also with the Pneumatic Waste Collection System (PWCS).

9. As expected. It takes just one or two inconsiderate residents to make a mess of this system...

10. Imagine 4 years and more of tolerance.

11. Residents reported:-

12. Persistent odour

13. Foul smell exuding from the centralised bin centre at Blk 223A of Jurong East Street 21 has been a persistent problem in Yuhua since the PWCS started.

14. According to a recent report from the Chinese evening newspaper Lianhe Wanbao, residents have been bearing with the smelly environment for the past four years.

15. Some residents also feedback of bulky items such as large soft toys, cardboards and mattresses, which choke up the pipe network. The cleaners will have to manually clear these items from the PWCS.

16. The success depends on the users of the PWCS.

17. There is no other choice for such estates.

Case Study 2: "Gluttony is a sin. Indeed if you eat at this address: 666! LOL"

1965159165_Gluttonyisasin.png.9e099a2cdee516b72bfbd3eb6f94080e.png1. So nice of the planners of this estate to be sensitive to the community. 

2. Good that no residential address starts with a 666 especially to the Christians. As 666 to some represents the devil's number.

3. However, it is the opposite for some Hokkiens. As 6 literally sounds like: LUCK. What more 666 signifies Luck x 3 or Luck, luck, luck! LOL

Case Study 3: All stacks/units in this develop ends in a odd number. Thus there is number 244 at HDB Tampines GreenCrest

1330982785_number244.png.4a8e6475fb1f73bdc1c7da28da34273b.png1. Some locals don't like a number like #04-244 or #14-244. 

2. Great that there can never be a number that ends with a 4 at Tampines GreenCrest.

3. However, not great if your lucky number happens to be 244. If so, perhaps, bid for a 244 for your next car number plate. LOL.

4. Could this be the reason why HDB uses odd stack numbers for this and many other developments?

5. HDB please be transparent and clarify for us - if this is true?

Case Study 4: A bad case of poor planning for the future!

1. Knowing well that Tampines Link to be expunged in the future.

2. And that HDB lease is expected to last at least 50 to 99 years, the planners of this estate should have moved up the three blocks 665A, B and C closer to the fringe of this park and facing Sungei Api Api.

2.1. Instead of placing the Precinct Pavilion, the Electrical Substation (ESS) and even the Multi Storey Car Park (MSCP) at this side of the development.

3. A case of poor foresight and future proof the estate for the residents there.1227273567_tampinesstreet64side.thumb.png.4a28b823ab465f584984b2c9c98aeb93.png

Case Study 5: First looks, if one look away from the current Tampines Link (road); stacks 241 and 243 are one of the two best stacks in this development.

1728226031_firstlooksgoodunderPeriod9FengShui.thumb.png.bb114381946e19a15ab35ef9f17072b0.png1. Good Shapes and Forms Feng Shui if one does not mind the occasional activities at the Precinct Pavilion (PP). Cross fingers that no wakes happen during festive holidays like Chinese New Year (CNY).

1.1. Okay, there is no such thing as becoming a complain king during such sad occasions.

2. Recommendation: try to get a unit at least 4th storeys or higher to avoid having a view into the PP.

3. Who says the PP is always for sad occasions. 

4. If you are an extrovert or a "party animal" may sometimes get the thrill of "happy" music such as of a Malay wedding, there.

5. Get a unit if you don't mind the sounds that come from activities at this PP also.

6. Okay, I must confess, even for a true North cardinal-point house, every six months do expect some afternoon sun from an acute angle into the facade and even the side wall of stack 241.

7. Under Flying Star Feng Shui generally North 2 facing houses have good qi at the frontage of the unit.

Case Study 6A: Common bins + Stacks 197, 227 and 247 + Poor Shapes and Forms Feng Shui


1. Stacks 197, 227 and 247 have Poor Shapes and Forms Feng Shui as not only one unit wall shares the same wall as two common bins, but also the frontage of both stacks/units have essence of smell from them.


2. Okay, you also noticed the three common lobby lifts. Frankly, 575661026_commonbin3.png.b8a6e66d4c2bbdc2b17b5173faef8088.pngthere is no issue with them. Even if some Feng Shui Masters or persons say no good for moving metal to be beside a unit.

2.1. In fact, it is a blessing in disguise given that lifts or lift walls are often of a reasonable strength to 197, 227 or 247. 

Case Study 6B: Heard this confessions of a Pet Dog staying at #247?

Pet Dog @ #247: "My master only complaints about the smell during durian season"

Pet Dog @ #247: "For me, how I wish my nose is not so sensitive! I can smell all kinds of rotten four smell from don't know where + every morning when the cleaners start cleaning an area known as the common bin lobby".

Case Study 8: Potential poison arrow(s) from the roof-line of Drop-Off-Point (DOP)


1. From other existing completed HDB developments, there is a potential poison arrow(s) usually towards #02-199 and #02-225.

Note: This also depends on how elaborate the roof-line is. Sometimes in other HDB estates, the DOP is sloping. Thus please confirm this and not take it as a wholesale information.

Case Study 10: Common sense Feng Shui and eating house

1 It is inevitable that one should avoid a low storey unit especially at stacks #215 and #213.


2. One is often the smell or aroma from the coffee-shop. And also hopefully, the smoking area is not close to the unit. especially stacks #215 and #213. To avoid unhealthy passive smoking.

3. Most coffee-shops near to HDB flats often were tasked to include signages to lower the noise level especially after 10pm. Thus hopefully, this has been adhered to.

4. Another secondary concern is as the development age, there will ultimately be more pests.

5. There are several HDB developments where delivery vans and trucks pull-up to deliver produce and products. Hopefully, the buffer between the shops/MM and EH is sufficient to block or reduce the noise. As often, some delivery persons don't bother to switch off their engines - illegal but to them -- who cares!

Case Study 11: What is your opinion of the three Aug 2020 Tampines sites: GreenCrest, GreenGlade or GreenOpal?

1.  In my opinion, it is easy to give GreenOpal a lower priority than the other two site. While GreenGlade is "sandwiched" between a future place of worship and a school. GreenOpal seems to look more promising amongst the three.

2. Why I consider GreenOpal the lowest priority?

2.1. For three major reasons:-

A. Pan-Island Expressway:

3. If one is sensitive to traffic noise, it is a no-no to occupy several blocks close to it.

B. Site Reserved for Health and Medical Care:

4. The other two Tampines sites don't have this.

4.1. Leave it to your imagination on this one.. Can be a bonus for some - but most younger residents may not find it .... beneficial at the moment.

C. Okay there is a site reserved for the park as well as Bedok Canal.

5. Personal preference as really don't like having afternoon sun all year round + several stacks also have afternoon sun that bathe or soak into the master bedroom wall.

6. If one's ballot number is close to the "bottom"; not much good choice to choose from...


7. Maybe can consider these.. but do expect afternoon sun: 688 and 684 also got an added "bonus" of afternoon sun soaking into the master bedroom side wall...


8. [Below - Tampines GreenCrest] In general, if one were to consider long term especially when Tampines Link is expunged, then stacks like #241 and #243 are the better stacks.


8.1. I did a write-up on the concerns of facing a Precinct Pavilion. 
8.2. Thus best to get a unit that is at least 5 or 6 storeys or higher, here.

9. HDB Tampines GreenGlade

9.1. Future site reserved for place of worship is fortunately a road away. Just try to avoid stacks #136 and #138 (If possible) 


9.2. I have also added comments on "Any concerns if face a school.."

10. Looks like have to understand the concept of the "Bell curve".

Case Study: Do you know that even if a geomancer says that the site is excellent, all sites are govern by the concept of the Bell Curve

1. Remember, even if a geomancer says that this is a good development. However, a good unit also depends on where it is within the development:


2. Is your potential unit under the Good, the Bad or the Ugly?


3. Often if one is lucky, even if the unit is not so fantastic superficially. Some units are like an unpolished gem. While others unfortunately may be a hopeless rotten apple.

3.1. Just imagine, if the unit is like a 10 year old rundown 1,000 cc car. Even a good Feng Shui Master is unable to turn it into a good unit!  


By the way, (above) this falls under Habit Number 11.

4. Under Habit 1, one possibility is by ranking one's bedroom type by stack/unit: 1st choice, 2nd choice etc...
