Oct 2023 BTO: Tanglin Halt Cascadia Fengshui Unit Review
Published: 23 October 2023
Tanglin Halt Cascadia, located in the central region of Singapore, was launched under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model in HDB’s October 2023 Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise in Queenstown recently. In this article, we’ll take an in-depth fengshui review on this upcoming BTO estate to assess its fengshui qualities and see what it has to offer beyond its prime location.
Note: The PLH model ensures that new public housing built in prime, central locations like the city centre and the Greater Southern Waterfront will remain affordable and accessible for Singaporeans. Learn more
Tanglin Halt Cascadia: Landform fengshui
Bounded by Commonwealth Drive and the Rail Corridor, Tanglin Halt Cascadia is located in the mature Queenstown precinct. From a fengshui viewpoint, this new BTO development sits on the Western Dragon and falls under the fengshui formation of the “Land of White Horse”, characterised by enthusiasm and loyalty.
Long-time residents of the horse land shall benefit from its positive energies and attain success on their career front. However, one should not overlook the horse’s shortcomings such as being over-ambitious and lacking determination. The latter could result in failures and cause one to lose fighting spirit.
The energetic nature of the horse makes Queenstown an ideal place for business start-ups while those who wish to hold on to existing businesses may find it challenging.
Internal fengshui considerations
When it comes to choosing an ideal unit, keep in mind that the main orientation of a house will directly influence the overall luck of its residents. The house orientation refers to the facing of your house, which can typically be measured from the main entrance where qi flows in.
Tanglin Halt Cascadia comprises 4 residential blocks that offer 973 units of 3- and 4-room flats, ranging from 34 to 47 storeys for two blocks, and 10 to 25 storeys for another two blocks..
Based on fengshui analysis, North and South are the most auspicious directions in the upcoming Period 9 and 1 (years 2024 – 2063), and Northwest and Southeast are the second most auspicious directions. It is recommended to choose a unit that faces either of these directions or lies at the border of these directions to tap on the positive energies.
We have categorised the units at Tanglin Halt Cascadia under the Period 9 Auspicious Home Ranking chart, as listed below.
Note that there is no fixed lucky direction that caters to everyone. If in doubt, you may like to leave it to the professionals. Way Fengshui provides end-to-end fengshui services from selecting an ideal unit to helping you create a harmonious environment in your new home.
This is especially if your unit is facing the least favourable direction, i.e. Northeast or Southwest. Getting a reliable fengshui consultation can help you to clear doubts and ensure that your household thrive in the coming Period 9.
External fengshui considerations
As one’s external environment accounts for more than interior considerations, it is important to consider features of the surrounding space when selecting a new home.
With the rail corridor just at its doorstep, Tanglin Halt Cascadia promises nature amidst many amenities in Queenstown. Besides being a short walk from Commonwealth MRT, there is a food court and supermarket nearby.
Whilst Tanglin Halt Cascadia is located in a mature estate with many amenities, future homeowners should be mindful that this district is undergoing redevelopment. Based on the BTO site plan, several sites surrounding Tanglin Halt Cascadia are reserved for future high-rise developments. This indicates potential conflict points, as well as pollution and negative energies (Sha Qi) during the construction period.
High-rise buildings in proximity present a potential risk of conflicts such as Tian Zhan Sha (home’s frontage facing an opening between two or more building structures that funnel negative energies), corner Sha (角煞) where sharp corners present hidden threats, etc. If you encounter such scenarios, you may display a pair of guardian lions or Six Emperor Coins emblem to ward off the negative energies. If in doubt, don’t hesitate to consult a professional fengshui master for appropriate fengshui measures.
The multi-storey car park(MSCP) at Tanglin Halt Cascadia is 6/7 storeys tall. There are some stacks at Block 75A and 75B that face the MSCP directly. Affected units on the lower storeys may encounter fengshui conflicting forces (煞气) such as noise pollution (噪音) and headlight flashes from moving cars. This could cause disturbances to daily life such as insomnia. To counter this, homeowners can consider installing a window blind.
Last but not least, stacks that are near or face the bin centre directly are not recommended (eg. stacks 533, 535). If your front door faces the Bin Centre directly, your house is likely to be amongst the first to be affected by rubbish stench once the wind starts blowing.
Did you know?
It is unadvisable to have your bedroom door facing the toilet door, and it’d be worse if your toilet door faces your bed directly. As the toilet is a place with moisture and stinky smell, the negative energy that flows directly into the bedroom due to inappropriate door positions will cause illness on bones and muscles. Over time, it may lead to a more serious illness as well as wealth loss.
In the case of Tanglin Halt Cascadia, both the 3-room and 4-room floor plans show a toilet door facing a bedroom door directly. Homeowners may want to consider slight modifications to the layout or to seek advice from a professional fengshui practitioner for fengshui remedies.
The position of your toilet and where it faces is very important. It should not be directly facing your main door, kitchen door, or the bedroom door (as mentioned earlier). Bear in mind that the toilet door is like a large hole, releasing negative energy, conflicting with the beneficial energy that enters via the main entrance, and it would affect your household members negatively.

As with most things in life, getting it right from the start will save you lots of effort. More than just the correct placement of furniture or avoiding certain colours, home fengshui looks into compatibility amongst the homeowners and your living spaces.
Tanglin Halt Cascadia offers great convenience with its prime location but some units face the least favourable directions in Period 9. Affected homeowners are recommended to consult a fengshui practitioner for a detailed home fengshui review.
