Altura EC Review 9

Public Transport Connectivity – 3.5/5★

In terms of public transport access, Altura falls short due to its relatively-long 15-min walk from the nearest MRT station, which is Bukit Batok MRT station on the North-South Line. Due to the tropical climate in Singapore, a walking distance to the nearest MRT under 5 minutes is ideal. 

However, in that 15-mins walk, Altura residents will be able to reach the Bukit Batok bus interchange as well, where they are able to use the many bus services available to get around the key locations in Singapore.

Driving Accessibility – 3.5/5★

Despite being situated in the western region that is slightly further from the core central areas of Singapore, Altura boasts incredible driving accessibility. It is located right next to Bukit Batok Road, which connects residents to 3 major expressways in Singapore, namely the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE). Driving to key locations such as Orchard Road, the Central Business District (CBD) and more via the AYE or PIE will take no more than 20 minutes.

Nearby Amenities – 4/5★

In no more than a short 3 to 5-minute stroll, residents of Altura will be able to delight in a range of amenities, including shopping malls and supermarkets. 

Le Quest Mall is the nearest shopping mall to Altura, which houses your everyday conveniences, such as beauty salons, a dentist, a clinic, a supermarket, a tuition centre, popular F&B outlets and more. Notable brands in this mall include Guardian, Koufu, McDonald’s, FairPrice Finest, Tian Ma and many more. 

Aside from the spanning FairPrice Finest supermarket at Le Quest Mall, Altura residents can also opt to do their grocery runs at Sheng Siong Supermarket, which is just 3 minutes away by foot.

With such conveniences all within a 5-minute reach, Altura shines in terms of having a wide range of nearby amenities. 

F&B – 4/5★

On top of the F&B outlets at Le Quest Mall that is just 5 minutes away from Altura, residents can also have their meals at the nearby Superluck Food Court. As such, residents will be at an advantage of having such easy access to food options of different cuisines at different price ranges, from fast food and cafes, to hawker delights and casual dining restaurants.

Proximity to Schools – 5/5★

Altura is within 1km to four primary schools, including ACS (Primary) which is a prestigious primary school known for its academic excellence and impressive alumni of leaders of the country. While currently located in Barker Road, ACS (Primary) school is set to move to Tengah by 2030, which is just 3 years after the completion of the EC.

Living within 1km of the school will grant children priority enrolment in the school, making Altura remains the ideal choice for families with school-going children who want to get into these prestigious schools.

Future Developments – 4.5/5★

Altura is located just off the developing Tengah neighbourhood, which is slated to be one of the most exciting developments announced recently. Envisioned as a “Forest Town”, Tengah will be green, sustainable and smart, and have Singapore’s first car-free town centre.

Price point – 4/5★

Altura is cheaper than other new condo launches due to its status as an executive condominium. As an EC, buyers may also be eligible to receive a housing subsidy of up to $30,000 when you buy an Executive Condominium (EC) unit under the CPF Housing Grant Scheme. 

Additionally, for its proximity to amenities and food options, Altura is definitely worth considering for its affordable price tag. This Bukit Batok EC is also expected to have high investment potential when buyers have met its minimum occupancy period and can sell it after 5 years. 

Developer – 3/5★

Altura EC is jointly developed by Qingjian Realty and Santarli Construction. Qingjian Realty is a trusted real estate developer known for their well-designed homes that complement the lifestyles of modern  homeowners.
