Isn't that the same HDB building from the coins???

 

BTW, very interesting article about Mr. San. Nice to learn some insight (albeit in hindsight) of the man.

 

 

 

Speaking of Singapore, I just got home from work to find a slip from the Post Office that I have a registered package from Singapore waiting at the PO for me to pick up in the morning.

In the early HDB flats, they all look alike. All squarish and in blocks. This is reduce the construction cost. In todays HDB flats, they are very different. They are design to look sophisticated. More closer to the private condoniums and apartments.

 

The new trend of housing in Singapore, is to build apartment in Central Business District area. This are high end private housing which lies along Orchard Road, Shenton Way and Singapore will be building two big Integrated Resort which have family entertainment and casino. They will be in Marina Bay and Sentosa. It will be completed in 2009. City Living is thus a new trend. Most HDB are bought in towns away from the city area. Towns such as Toa Payoh (where I live ), Ang Mo Kio, Yishun, Choa Chu Kang, Jurong etc have HDB and private condo. There are landed properties such as semi-detached, bungalows etc

 

Another new and untested housing is in Sentosa. The resort like island off Singapore. There are the 99 years leasehold resort style housing. Some recent launches of these apartment have already break record pricing.
