UrbanVille @ Woodlands

 

Bounded by Woodlands Avenue 2 and Avenue 5, UrbanVille @ Woodlands is located close to amenities such as Causeway Point and Woodlands Civic Centre. The overall pedestrian connectivity within the development is further enhanced by the integration of the WoodsVista Gallery which serves as a pedestrian and cycling link to eventually connect to Woodlands MRT station and the Woodlands Waterfront. In addition, UrbanVille @ Woodlands will be well-connected by various overhead pedestrian links across major roads. The development comprises 8 residential blocks with heights ranging from 14 to 32 storeys.

UrbanVille @ Woodlands will have a distinctive profile, with a sky bridge located at the 24th storey offering panoramic views of the town. Sky terraces at some residential blocks and roof gardens at all residential blocks will create a relaxing and welcoming environment. Poised to inject new vitality into the area, its name reflects its identity as a vibrant residential hub.

UrbanVille @ Woodlands houses a multitude of outdoor facilities such as playgrounds, fitness stations, and a hard court. Alternatively, you can choose to spend some quiet time at the roof garden above the Multi-Storey Car Park.

A supermarket, eating house, restaurants, shops, childcare centre and Residents' Committee Centre will also be located within UrbanVille @ Woodlands.

You can choose from 1,785 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-, 4-, and 5-room flats.

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.:-

598897233_WASTESYSTEM1.png.25a015842473e1f737ac1d6ecc418bdf.png

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:-

694676313_WASTESYSTEM2.png.ae53bc7b58c3eee8ead3692fc096283c.png

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 1C: The nearest stacks + facing the PWCS are 115 and 117: with stacks 111 and 113 and 139 being the next few closes stacks.

Hi Master Lee, is the 4 blocks (207, 209, 355, 357) facing cross intersection is bad fengshui? 

Please do a search eg. “Cross junction “ under this forum and there are already many replies to such similar questions

Case Study 2A: The planners of this estate has a distinctive style of placing the emergency exit stairwells

1. Don't get me wrong, there is no issue at all with this configuration:-

2083495517_stairwellsharingsamewallasaunit.png.911ddb7c5fc49f95c9df0b57886d1353.png

2. Just that there are so many of the above littered all over this development. Therefore, it thus become more or less a signature of this HDB Urbanville.

3. This is less common technique of placing the stairwell right between the two main entrances of each unit #119 and #121:-

1434039134_exergencyexitstaircasewell1.png.ef34928654a1a0fa40eb0eb31c232d11.png

3.1. Hopefully, (touchwood) if there is a fire and both homeowners open their main gate grille, it will virtually jam the entrance to the stairwell. 

3.2. Thus really, not a great idea to have such a layout. 

4. I remembered vividly, a client who took the House Hunting (Can or Cannot buy) service. She is divorce and has a daughter.

4.1. She specifically requests that I do leave out any units next to the staircase.

4.2. She has a concern of phobia of someone hiding behind the stairwell / staircase and pounce on her when she opens her main door gate. 

5. Below is a sampling of most of the units with the above:-

 

2095567027_emergencyexitstaircase-well.thumb.png.903c21fcf26f36e0a9f68b5d525c8e5c.png

6. As mentioned earlier, what was mentioned still acceptable or rather not a major Feng Shui concern.

7. In fact, in theory may be a blessing in disguise. This is because the emergency stairwell is usually a solid structure and great that this stairwell shares one wall with the unit. 

7.1. Also, that many condos do not build a household shelter for each unit and thus utilise the stairwell for this purpose.

Case Study 2B: Stack 337 main entrance door faces the emergency exit staircase door. Should I be concerned with this?

332786705_stairwellandstack337.png.5d70dade84692f88117aa5e535f45c80.png1. In Feng Shui, it is considered inauspicious for the main door to face a staircase. As this symbolises wealth flowing down the stairs.

2. Fortunately one has the backing of the law.

2.1. Due to the Singapore Fire Safety code, all emergency staircase doors must always be closed at all times. 

2.2. Thus no one or estate personnel should not be allowed to leave this staircase door open. It must be closed at all times.

Case Study 3A: Is there a long corridor and does it end up directly facing my main door?

1. Another benefit of placing the emergency exit stairwell as shown beside stack 147 and stack 169 is that only the stairwell exit door faces this long corridor. Not a unit's main door. 

747295995_longcorridor.png.d08cc8ac9993fac9f1fb4efe8b06a264.png

Case Study 3B: The corridor leading towards stacks 331 and 335 is short.

Furthermore the main door of both 331 and 335 is not even facing this short corridor. Which is good.

 1189041589_corridor1.png.2fec060b01c899e174b4fb70289b0159.png

Case Study 3C: Good that stack 109's main door also does not face the long corridor.

Fortunately, stack 109's main door is shown in yellow. 

In addition, there is a gentle turn as shown in green plus towards a wall.

Case Study 4A: How come such a beautiful rectangular (good Shapes and Forms plot of land) as shown as "A" below did not turn out to be so?

1. While searching onemap for the external outline views of buildings near-by to Urbanville; at first I thought I made a mistake in the location.

2. As the present street map shows the same two temples. But was totally surprised me was a great rectangular plot of land as shown by "A" below curved out in an unrecognised manner in the Urbanville HDB Sales brochure:-

931776374_CHINESETEMPLE.png.da644d1d013e0b03ce0d4cffa9dc06e1.png

3. Below: How come from rectangular plot that turns out to a chunk bitten off by a hungry shark?

3.1. Under Shapes and Forms, it is better to curve outwards than to curve-in. Thus the opposite plot: "Site Reserve for future high-rise whhite development has better Feng Shui.

97846868_urbanvilleplot.thumb.png.b9b078c1106fe0184c9a561a435cf40c.png

Case Study 4B: There is a possibility of units at Urbanville facing or even visible of one or two temples.

In addition, as the region marked as Z has yet to be developed for high rise, it may be possible even for stacks 111 and or 109 have a view towards the temple direction:

Case Study 5: Sampling of location of common bins / bin lobby

1. It has always been a common (popular) practise for HDB planners in the past as well as present to try to place the common bins/bin lobby near to the lift lobby area.

2. It is also common sense that generally the most central area of the block and also to faciliate the rubbish bin truck:-

 

1081823639_samplingofcommonbinslocation.png.a9ef9dc9f59b9e02fac3fb810bb35859.png

3. Of course, not perfect for stacks that are close-by to it e.g. 103 and 135. Fortunately and hopefully,  most of the time, the common bins/lobby entrance is not in full view of the main door.

Case Study 6: Sample illustration of potential inauspicious Fire at Heaven's Gate at NW sector

3. Please take note that this is just a quick sampling. There will certainly also be similar cases in this and other newly launched developments.

Case Study 7: Potential sha qi or poison arrow from Drop of Point (DOP) roof-line aimed towards 2nd storey units

1. A sample of one of the DOP at Urbanville shows that it is rather imposing:

1. 170689737_potentialshaqifromroof-lineofDOP.png.f779237a562a852589f5d3f4ab2087e7.png

2. Most concern usually is the 2nd storey units. As often, the roof-line of such a DOP is able to become a poison arrow and "slice" towards virtually the entire frontage of the 2nd storey unit.

3. For example, most likely it will slice through that of stack 119. As for stacks 139 and 149, most likely such a poison arrow is aimed towards the 2nd storey living room and even maybe bedroom 3 windows.

3.1. It is difficult to cure if this roof-line becomes a poison arrow aimed towards a living room window(s).

4. For example, the following photos are from Fernvale Rivergrove with quite similar type of DOP:-

potential poison arrows.png

potential poison arrows1.pngpotential poison arrows2.pngpotential poison arrows3.png

5. Please also take note that there is a potential sha qi at Block 909A stacks #02-311, #02- 313 and #02-315 from the DOP at Block 909C.

Hi Master Lee, about Urbanville units 321 and 323, how is the Feng Shui over there? Due to the closeness to the PP and DOP, will it affect the Feng Shui?

These are some considerations:

Part 1: PP and DOP

1267276858_321and323pp.png.ab24ea520441f947b05c3d16643f8616.png1. From current examples from completed sites, usually 2nd storey units are affected by the roof-line(s) of the DOP.

2. Fortunately, since the DOP is not directly at either 321 and 323's frontages, the specific DOP is a non-issue.

3. It is true that mostly likely #03-321 to perhaps #04-321 may have an indirect view of the PP. But fortunately, only unless one is such a "busy body" to constantly look towards the PP. 

4. In fact, two actual stacks 343 and 345 are the ones that directly face this PP. 

5. Usually, PP's of newer developments often do not have that frequent wakes = Touchwood! Especially since mostly occupied by younger couples.

5.1. Unless lots of the couples have elderly staying with them. (Malay weddings.. not sure.. though).

6. Thus for low floors of 321 and 323, maybe, just maybe occassional "noise" coming from the PP.

6.1. And I believe, even so, there is perhaps a restriction like say? 10pm... not allowed any "noise?".  While frankly, 323 is the least of an issue - if any.

Part 2: DOP and Sha Qi from stack #329 towards stacks #321 and #323

1483962178_shaqiandpoisonarrow.png.68f3c748aab1fb3fa5e84534f48942f2.png

7. The easiest way to see if a unit is affected or not by Sha Qi is to draw similar YELLOW highlights.

8. One will notice that the DOP is no where near this YELLOW highlight.

9. However, one will notice that #329 is in the way.

9.1. This type of Sha Qi is a TYPE 2 - Poison arrow. To learn more, click this link:-

1. Many Singapore Feng Shui Masters especially those with lineages are actually a Feng Shui Store in disguise.

2. They give their store a nice sounding name like : Lifestyle ... 

1935764347_Buyfromme.thumb.png.a15abb22710d0dc1a221131eec489ce5.png

3. Always asks: "Must I buy from YOU?"

Case 8: Front door faces the Common Bin Lobby (CBL) + has a view at the two bins

1. Stack #333 is the only stack that has it's front door directly facing the CBL + certainly a view of the two common bins:-

1590499490_frontdoorandcommonbins.png.45e829bc058aff13a24aa5040d8e665a.png

2. Actually if one were to stand at the front door of stack #335. 

3. Do take note that for some other blocks, although many other stacks/units do not have a view into the CBL which is good, however, some 5 bedrooms are like "a wall" away from it.

Case Study 9: Potential Sha Qi from Stack #345 towards #341

1. [Below] 5 bedrooms Stack #341 faces the sidewall of #345. This is considered a Sha Qi.

2. In addition, #341 has a view of the yard areas of #329 as well as both #345 and #347

451437895_stack341.png.2dc849ab616fbf7c670f3188b90c188e.png

3. Thus not exactly a good choice.

4. One consolation is that fortunately the DOP's roof-line is not a threat especially towards #02-341.

Case Study 10: Can I buy a unit facing a cross-junction?

1. Stacks #207,  #209, #355 and #357 can be considered as literally facing the cross-junction.

2. Good news that these for stacks have the 2/3 storey MSCP as a buffer.

3. Thus in my opinion, quite "safe".
