Forestwood Condo · Site Analysis
Here is an analysis of the Forestwood condo site location, orientation and surroundings, to help you in your selection of a unit.
The site itself is a nice size, about 150,000 sq ft. Tilted in a roughly north-east / south-west direction; or north-west / south-east orientation, depending on which angle you look at it.
Bounded by Lorong Lew Lian (where the main entrance will be) on its south-west, Upper Serangoon Road on its north-west flank, Upper Paya Lebar Road on its north-east, and rounded off by Jalan Chermat, a small lane on its south-east.

Forestwood Condo · Neighbourhood
The South West Side
The main entrance to the Forestwood condo will be from Lorong Lew Lian. This is a minor road, across which is a small HDB estate. Pros & cons to this: not a fantastic view to look at, but the HDB flats do help to block out some of the late afternoon sun. Not much road noise from this side.
The North West Side
Upper Serangoon Road bounds this side, and it is a rather busy road. On top of that is a viaduct (see photo above) which carries through traffic and helps to alleviate jams at the traffic junction below. Expect traffic noise from this side. Also the west sun.
The main advantage is that, looking this way, views from higher floors will be unblocked for quite a distance. Not only is Upper Serangoon Road a very wide road, but across it, is a church and the landed housing estate of Joon Hiang Road & Recreation Road.
The North East Side
Flanked by Upper Paya Lebar Road, which is another rather busy road. Expect traffic noise on this side too. But if you can live with that, the advantage is that this side does not get the west afternoon sun, and it is relatively open, as the road is pretty wide here too.
The South East Side
This side of the Forestwood condo faces the 2 to 3 storey landed houses along Jalan Chermat. No major road or afternoon sun here. It is also pretty much unblocked, at least as far as the 2 rows of houses along Jalan Chermat is concerned.
But note that beyond these 2 rows of houses, is the 10 storey high Cherry Hill condominium. So if you really must have a further view, then get units above the 10th floor.
