May/Aug 2020 Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO Review: Convenient Yet Affordable

Originally slated for launch in May 2020, the Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO has since been postponed to the August 2020 launch. 

When it comes to the Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO flats, it almost feels like things are too good to be true. The BTO units are not only close to Pasir Ris Beach, they’re also within walking distance from Pasir Ris MRT. 

The 1,070 units of 2-room Flexi, 3-room, 4-room, and 5-room units offered will also be in a mature estate, promising a superb locale that’s easily accessible, with lots of nearby amenities and recreational things to do with the family. However, expect the BTO flats to fetch a higher price compared to some of the other launches in August.

Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO Location 

Near Pasir Ris MRT, which will be on the new Cross Island Line

Pasir Ris MRT station will be only about 600m away, taking residents less than 10-minutes if they walk. Pasir Ris MRT station will be part of the CRL in future, with the first phase slated to be operational by 2029. With this phase ready, Costa Grove residents will be able to gain easy train access to areas such as Serangoon, and Ang Mo Kio. 

When the entire 50km line is ready, it will better connect residents not just to the northeastern areas, but also areas far west like Jurong Lake District. Furthermore, the CRL will have the most number of interchange stations, providing residents with more alternative routes to their destinations.


Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO Amenities

Pasir Ris Beach, Pasir Ris Park and more 

The Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO flats will be within a whisker’s breadth from the Pasir Ris Beach. What’s more, the BTO flats are located just behind Pasir Ris Park, where families can indulge in activities such as water sports, cycling, a barbecue, and even pony-riding! 

In addition, the BTO units will be near elevated cycling and pedestrian paths that provide a direct connection from a town centre to the park. This town centre will be in the form of a mixed-use development comprising retail and housing units, as well as the future Pasir Ris Integrated Transport Hub that sits adjacent to the Pasir Ris MRT station. 

Beyond Pasir Ris Park lies Pasir Ris Beach and the sea—if you’re lucky enough to get the right unit, you’ll be able to enjoy panoramic beachfront views of the sea right from your doorstep! 

These flats are set to be an attractive proposition for multi-generational families in Pasir Ris, allowing young families to live closer to their family.  

Downtown East, Passion WaVe, Wild Wild Wet and more 

Costa Grove isn’t just close to the sea and a park. 

Leisure amenities such as Downtown East and PAssion WaVe are also very close by. Over at Downtown East, families can rent an overnight chalet with family and friends, enjoy a thrilling time at the Wild Wild Wet water park, catch a movie, and even skate at Singapore’s largest indoor skating park!

For residents who want even more recreation options, they can still head over to Passion WaVe @ Pasir Ris to do kayaking, dinghy sailing, and abseiling. There’s also Pasir Ris Sports Centre nearby. Here, residents can swim, play soccer, have a game of badminton or tennis, or get fit at the gym.  

White Sands shopping mall

Furthermore, White Sands mall sits just adjacent Pasir Ris MRT—less than a 10-minute walk from the BTO flats. Here, residents can dine at a wide array of F&B outlets and do some shopping—all just a short walk away from home. 

Pasir Ris will also be getting its very first hawker centre, slated to open later this year. Located at Pasir Ris Town Park, this 2-storey establishment with 41 stalls will be just a 10-minute walk away from the BTO flats!

Residents may also like to know that there are quite a number of educational institutions in the area. This includes Elias Park Primary, Hai Sing Catholic School, Meridian Secondary, and Overseas Family School.


Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO Price 

With everything that these Pasir Ris BTO flats have to offer, they most certainly don’t come cheap:

Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO 

Unit type

Price (excl. grants)

Price (incl. grants)

2-room Flexi

From $137,000

From $57,000


From $245,000

From $185,000


From $374,000

From $329,000


From $493,000

From $463,000

However, although more expensive than the August 2020 BTO launches in the non-mature estates of Choa  Chu Kang, Tengah and Woodlands, Costa Grove is actually one of the more affordable mature estate projects. 

It’s only slightly more expensive than the new flats at Tampines, but much cheaper than those at Ang Mo Kio, Bishan and Geylang. 


Conclusion: Is the Costa Grove Pasir Ris BTO any good? 

All things considered, Costa Grove seems to offer the best of both worlds: it boasts the convenience and accessibility of a mature estate, yet features quite an affordable price tag. 

The current site is already very developed, with shopping malls and other amenities almost at its doorstep. But that’s not all – further developments like the upcoming Cross Island Line in the area are likely to give properties in this area an uplift in future as well. 

That said, competition is expected to be stiff, so consider carefully if you need a flat urgently. Although there are 1,070 units, mature estates like Pasir Ris tend to be more popular, and the last time BTO flats were launched here was almost 10 years ago—in 2011.
