I like the complex. This thread pointed me to do some reading on public housing in Singapore;they've done an impressive job there.

sorry but the facade is hideous. it's much to messy, looks like those fields of aircon split units on the facades of many hong kong highrises. but for HDB it is very impressive with the gardens etc.

I disagree, this building is amazing! Of course the facade doesn't look great at the moment it's less than half built, they're not going to do the final painting and details on the facade for a while yet. Have some faith, some of the other recent HDB blocks of flats have looked stunning, this is their flagship project, they're not going to settle for something that looks crap.

I think this is a brilliant project, I really like how they connected all of the towers into one complex via skygardens and the skybridges. This is a pretty massive project too, good for Singapore.

yes..its only half done....

im quite amazed how some pple here expect this project to look great....this is a public housing project with the prices of units set below market price...
corners are cut everywhere to reduce costs...and asthetics are the lst to go.
however,singapore's quality of public housing has much better quality than most countries..

but this is the first project that has a skygarden and i have met the architect who designed it

That is cool kurakura!

My hopes for this project are to see the final cladding being implemented (and hope it will look sophisticated), and of course, to enjoy the stunning city & sea views from the roof deck

One of my friends has obtained a unit on the 40+ floor, so hope to check it out upon completion, and I dont think it will complete in time for F1 next year, which is not being held in this area anyway...
