My list of BTO launches got a record number of “thank you“, several visitors asked me if I can make a similar list for pre-BTO projects. YES I can make, BUT…
Below are the precints from Ang Mo Kio only, simplified version of database of HDB blocks.

The list of BTO launches was copied from Wikipedia, and HDB issue brochures at every launch, containing number of units, so making the table did not costed me much time.
The pre-BTO projects does not have name, launch or completion date, and there are NO brochures issued from them. A list like the above one can only be made MANUALLY, counting units would take hours.
Also they were built in batches and sold through Registration for Flat, I am not fully understand how RFS worked, but probably people could not choose which flat they want. Construction batches have no importance for buyers.
Can you give me a solid reason to spend time making a nationwide list of pre-BTO projects?
