600 Households in Ang Mo Kio to Move to New Flats Under Selective En Bloc R

HDB has announced that 600 en bloc households in Ang Mo Kio will be moving to new flats by 2017. This includes UE BizHub Central and Anderson Secondary School. In addition, HDB is compensating the flat owners for the market value of their flats, stamp and legal fees for buying an equivalent flat, and S$10,000 for removal allowance. Furthermore, HDB is also offering housing loans for the replacement flats.

The HDB has decided to renew four residential blocks in Ang Mo Kio, which will result in 600 new flats being built. The four blocks have a total of 606 flats, mostly three and four-room units, with a few five-room units and two executive flats. These flats were previously adjoining three-room units.

As part of the process, HDB will engage the residents in shaping the new living environment. In the replacement flats, residents will have the chance to participate in deciding the precinct’s name and use of specific spaces. Additionally, the HDB will facilitate the sale of remaining flats to residents with SERS rehousing benefits. Moreover, residents can request to have their flats sold or transferred to other owners, in case they don’t wish to relocate.

The replacement flats will be built alongside the existing Ang Mo Kio Drive estate. The work is expected to start in the third quarter of 2023 and be completed by Q3 2027. The replacement flats will have better designs, modern facilities and fresh 99-year leases. Furthermore, eligible flat owners will receive a SERS grant of up to S$30,000 for purchasing their new flats. Alternatively, owners can apply for a housing loan from HDB to purchase their replacement flats.

HDB will assign a SERS manager to each household. This process is expected to take five years. During the time of the relocation, HDB will survey the residents for the precinct names, fostering a sense of community and belonging among residents. In 1995, former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong first introduced SERS to breathe new life into old HDB estates.

HDB has selected four HDB blocks in Ang Mo Kio to redevelop. These blocks comprise of 606 units.

The affected units are one-, two-, and three-room flats.

The first SERS in almost four years will see the HDB redevelop four HDB blocks in Ang Mo Kio. The blocks comprise 606 units, mostly three or four-room sold flats. Some of the remaining units are also available for sale. These blocks are eligible for the Selective En Bloc Redevelopment Scheme (SERS).

Residents are expected to be consulted in the planning of the new flats. The name of the precinct will be decided collectively by residents, as will the use of certain spaces. If residents do not want to move, they can apply for another flat elsewhere with SERS rehousing benefits. Residents can also opt to sell their existing flats and transfer the SERS rehousing benefits to a new home.

HDB will offer replacement flats in Ang Mo Kio Drive. Residents can expect a S$10,000 removal allowance and legal fees for the purchase of a comparable replacement flat. The replacement flats are scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of 2027. As with the current SERS, the new flats will also come with a 99-year lease. This means that HDB tenants will get almost double the lease when they move out at the end of 2027.

The new estate will also provide access to a wide range of amenities, including a Cooked Food Centre and Cheng San Market.
