- Please note that changes/ update based on available information will be made from time to time, readers are advised to check on this page regularly.
- Analysis was done based on available data at the time of publishing of this review.
- As each and every unit has it's own attributes, analysis shown here only represent the majority units in the stacks having the same attribute including sun, wind, view, distance etc.
To create a systematic way to analyse a development and based on the collected attributes described above, we have organised the rating for each attribute into a scale of 1 to 4 (1 being not so desirable to 4 which is most desirable). These attributes description will be made available to paid subscribers who wish to understand the in-depth analysis and how we can help homeowners assess their risk before they invest into one of the largest investment in their life. Our scoring system is based on data collected from all BTO launches and SERS program since year 2010 which consist of more than 234 developments with more than 165,000 units in total (on average, HDB only launch 16,000 to 20,000 units per year).
Engaged Hausanalyst a few days before our appt date as we were still undecided on which unit to pick. Best decision made since it is a huge purchase + time wasn't on our end. Initially we already had in mind of our dream flat + unit however we were uncertain of the pros and cons. Read reviews and chanced upon Hausanalyst. Turns out, on our first meeting, we realised what we had visualized in our minds all along were in actual fact not what it is. Backed by scientific data, we were given a thorough and detailed report, a model of the entire project and nitty gritty details down to the direction and exposure of the sun throughout the year at different timings, noise pollution from which areas and wind directions, just to name a few. Even the rubbish chute / water piping and how it functions were explained to us. There and then we knew the money spent weren't in vain. We were shown many aspects of the project which opened up our selections for the unit. On top, having the model enables us to be situated in the desired flat itself with the use of VR, being able to see the view and floor plan of the unit. End up, based on professional advice given, we selected our desired flat. Please do not hesitate to render this service. An amount of money would open up your mind + you ought to know what you're paying for with the huge sum spent. Thank you for your patience and rushing out the report for us! Highly recommended!!"

Towner Crest almost an arm length to Boon Keng MRT Station, the price premium reflects this proximity. Based on our early assessment, there will be estimated 53% of available stacks having 3pm west sun exposure (note that this assessment is based on units having a standard horizontal shading device of at least 300mm to 600mm). Higher percentage of west sun exposed units will translate to higher risk of getting a unit with west facing should your queue number reaches half way point. We rate the west sun exposure for this development at 1 out of 4.
Based on recorded prevailing wind pattern data from Meteorological Service Singapore for the year 2017, we estimate up to 92% of the available stacks here will get either 1 of the prevailing wind exposures either from North East, North to North West, South or South to South West. While having prevailing wind potential is a positive sign, recent research has shown that with the increased usage of air-con, higher level will in turn get more heated up. Prevailing wind exposure will allow the unit a good cross ventilation and allow healthier internal living space. Prevailing wind exposure is best facing the main façade where all the windows of Living and Bedrooms are facing. We rate the wind exposure for this development at 4 out of 4.

Should you engage us earlier, you should be able to save up to 80% (base on our S$350 Most popular package) of that forfeiture cost which you may incur.
This development is sited about 200m radius away from the nearest MRT station, Boon Keng Station (NE9). In terms of ease of public transportation, having a distance of 400m or less from an MRT station will be the best possible scenario as this coverage is what we considered as the gold mine for now (as the year goes by, it may lose its appeal due to the increased numbers of MRT stations). Proximity to LRT station will not equal to proximity to an MRT station as LRT only serve a small locality and eventually will need to connect to MRT for greater access to the whole Singapore. We rate the transportation proximity for this development at 4 out of 4.
This development consists of up to a total of 444 units with a plot ratio of 4.2. Both blocks will have a building height of up to 39 levels. A building higher than 40 levels will be classified as Super High-Rise building by SCDF which will require additional safety regulation by having a refuge level for safety purpose during an emergency. This development ‘almost’ reaches the threshold and yet without the additional required safety feature due to technicality allowance. A development size will determine how resources/ amenities within the development being distributed and utilised. A huge development will translate to a larger parking area, further distance to amenities, more residents sharing the same amenities, etc. More residents sharing the same amenities will attribute to higher wear and tear and eventually higher future maintenance and discomfort. We rate the development size for this development at 3 out of 4.
how to engage us?
Currently we have 2 packages which have helped many homeowners chose their right home. You can choose either one of our S$350 ‘Most Popular’ or S$500 ‘Absolute’ package.
If you think the cost is too great, you can help us by helping yourself to save some cost through our ‘Group Buy’ discount. Group Buy is applicable to a group of 5 couples, which have booked the same development. Each will get up to '40% OFF' our S$500 ‘Absolute’ package. Which means, if you can find 4 other couples (5 including yourself) to engage us as ‘Group Buy’, each will only have to invest S$300 for our ‘Absolute’ package. Please allow 1 week from the earliest Q.
Please email us at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ for more information.
Towner Crest is surrounded by existing residential precinct, healthcare facility, existing commercial as well as place for worship. Amenities within a 500m walk (15 mins walk) from a development will allow better accessibility and save on travelling time. These amenities include schools, health care facility, commercial area and better still with a large green area like parks and water body to allow nearby residents to relax and exercise. At best, we will try to avoid proximity to industrial area, be it business 1 or 2, airbase, reserved site, etc. A reserved site in URA masterplan being defined as an area the specific use of which have yet to be determined. This will translate to future unforeseen risk to the development. We rate the surrounding proximity for this development at 2 out of 4.
