Bidadari, or any call it the new Bishan, is finally ready for its first occupants. 881 families are increasingly moving in their units at both build-to-order (BTO) jobs, Alkaff Lakeview and Alkaff Vista. The prior is a larger of those two, comprising 531 units.
The location is excellent for residential living due to the quietness that prevails in the neighborhood and nearby the KI Residences Sunset Way Clementi mrt station.

The new 93-hectare Bidadari HDB estate sits on what was the Bidadari cemetery, one of the largest in Singapore. In this and a few different ways, it’s akin to one of Singapore’s earliest HDB estates — Bishan.
One of the distinguishing features of this Bidadari estate is the connection with nature and greenery. At the Alkaff Lakeview and Alkaff Vista, residents will be able to enjoy landscaped rooftop gardens that also doubles as a community space for the inhabitants. These spaces not just consist of shaded sitting areas but also kids playgrounds, fitness stations and are fitted with wheelchair access ramps.
The estate will also contain the new 10-hectare Bidadari Park, complete with a lake, heritage walk, open lawns, linking trails and just a treehouse from the children’s playground. Back in Alkaff Vista, is your Bidadari Greenway which features a biking and pedestrian system that runs along one of their estate’s 3 new roads — Bidadari Park Drive.
Although the majority of the units at the 2 BTO cubes are still undergoing renovation, a few taxpayers have already moved into their new houses. The estate will likely be fully completed by 2022 and will subsequently hold up to 10,000 new units.
With its proximity to 3 MRT stations — Potong Pasir, Woodleigh and Bartley; and colleges such as Maris Stella Primary and High Schools, Bartley Secondary School, Cedar Girls’ faculty and Stamford American School; flats here may be very valuable if they finally hit on the resale market in five years’ time.
The area is also regarded as at the mature estate of Toa Payoh and easily accessible to the town center and Central Business District (CBD). It is going to also house the nation’s first underground bus interchange, alongside Woodleigh MRT station.
