SINGAPORE: Environment-friendly flats at Treetops@Punggol were over-subscribed by more than four times when applications closed on Monday.

In all, the project will have 712 units consisting of mainly 4-room flats and some 2-room and 5-room units.

The blocks will have an eco-deck above the carpark, skyrise greening on its roofs and a community garden.

The units will also feature energy-efficient designs, like solar panels on the roof to power the common corridors and other facilities.

For these extra features, the flats will cost slightly more - $139,000 to $254,000 for 3- and 4-room units, and $370,000 to $383,000 for 5-roomers.

Treetops@Punggol was awarded the Green Mark under a scheme to promote eco-friendly building technologies and designs. - CNA/ir
