    Default HDB flat sizes not shrinking: Khaw Boon Wan

    Our flat not getting smaller meh? Then must the the citizen grown bigger because of the great life PAP is providing so it feels smaller?

    SINGAPORE - National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said on Wednesday night that HDB flats have been the same size for the past 15 years, and are not shrinking, contrary to popular belief.

    Mr Khaw was responding to a National University of Singapore (NUS) student's question on HDB flat sizes at the annual REACH Contributors' Forum.

    He added that they will not be reduced to the size of Hong Kong flats, which are far smaller, reported The Straits Times.

    He told the audience that he would "consider that a deterioration of our quality of life and we should avoid that".

    But homes by private developers are another matter, he noted, citing the increase in "shoebox" units on the market.

    He said the Government may have to step in if the proportion of such units becomes too high.

    Mr Khaw also assured Singaporeans the the high property prices now is a "temporary imbalance" of demand and supply.

    "In the past five years, the population was growing rapidly that infrastructure could not keep up so because of the temporary imbalance, prices shot up. HDB has been aggressively pumping units into the market and although Singapore is not in the steady stage yet... there is some stabilisation," he said.

    "We are seeking their understanding and patience... we are getting there. We will continue to work hard at it. In the next five-year term, I'm committed to build at least 100,000 HDB flats if necessary," he said.

    It's just that a shorter yardstick is being used! And no longer using the metric system, now use ancient chinese measurement scale!

    they also stopped building all the maisonettes and executive apartments.
    they stopped building 3 room flats then flipped again and restarted on 3 rooms and even 2 room flats....still not stopping at that.....they intro the studio apartments.....similar to rental 1 room flats of old.
    like everything else, cuntry going in reverse gear.

    It's just that, contrary to PAPzi statements to the contrary, our family sizes got larger.
