    Some history of the bodhi tree and temple:

    Maybe devotees will buy up all the units facing the tree and convert them into the new temple.

    This is a priced land... like Kovan Residence where MRT is right at doorstep, even nearer than [email protected] but no shopping complex nearby, only schools. But MRT is on circle line which might just be that little bit more convenient for some people.

    The main entrance to this project by car appears to be from Lor How Sun, not Bartley Road. Lor How Sun is a very small road - one lane each way, with cars parked at the roadside from those landed houses. Not sure how it can accommodate 700+ residents.

    Cul-de-Sac location implies poor fengshui? But, what the heck, next to MRT, anything oso can.

    Why entrance is from How Sun? There is a stretch that runs along Bartley Road?

    There is a requirement for road buffers and building setbacks. Bartley Road is likely to be a Category 2 road which requires a buffer of at least 15m from the main entrance for a residential building 6 storeys or higher. If it is Category 1, the buffer is 30m.

    Thus, locating the entrance at Bartley road would mean having to squeeze the blocks inwards and affect the overall ambience of the development. Maybe, less units can be built and less $$$ for the developer.
