BTO Dec 2010: Punggol Topaz

HDB InfoWEB: Sales Launches – HDB Flats : Buying A New Flat.

Bounded by Punggol Way and Punggol Field, Punggol Topaz puts you close to the conveniences of Punggol MRT/LRT station and the upcoming Town Centre. Nature lovers will enjoy having a charming natural environment nearby with the newly completed Punggol Reservoir. The upcoming Punggol Promenade lining the town’s coastal edge will also provide a scenic route for you to jog, cycle, or simply stroll and unwind, right by the waterside.

Following Punggol Emerald and Punggol Sapphire, Punggol Topaz is the latest in the series of developments named after gems. The residential blocks of Punggol Topaz feature crisp vertical lines that resonate with the elegant Topaz gems, thereby giving inspiration to the development’s name. To reflect the development’s proximity to Punggol Reservoir, the design of Punggol Topaz also carries a water theme. This is seen in the façade’s colours, waterbird motifs as well as the landscape’s concentric circular forms that mimic water ripples.

Comprising 12 blocks of 17-storey high residential blocks, Punggol Topaz offers 1,010 units of 3-, 4- and 5-room Standard Flats.

Within the development, there is a wide array of facilities like a supermarket, an eating house and shops, as well as a childcare centre and a Residents’ Committee Centre. All these are for you to enjoy, right at the comforts of your doorstep.

At the heart of Punggol Topaz lies a common green that boasts a kaleidoscope of outdoor recreational facilities catering to both the young and old. These include an adventure playground, a hardcourt, adult and elderly fitness stations, as well as a jogging track looping around it. The common green also features vibrant communal spaces like a community garden, a stage for community activities and resting shelters perfect for bonding with family and friends.

Beautifully landscaped green pockets found throughout the development allow residents from every block to be closer to nature. These green pockets are well equipped with shelters, playgrounds and fitness stations, providing residents with easy access to a variety of activity zones set in comfortable green surroundings.

In line with HDB’s plans to develop Punggol as an Eco-Town, Punggol Topaz is designed for Green Mark Certification, with eco-friendly features. The block and unit layouts are oriented to minimize heat gain from the western sun. It is designed with ecologically friendly features such as dry ponds and rain gardens to maintain the quality of surface runoff from rainwater prior to discharge into the drainage system.
