The Singapore authorities announced stricter guidelines on the maximum number of units in new blocks of private apartments and condos to tackle an excess of so-called “shoebox units” in the Republic.
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) say the rules are to encourage developers to provide a range of unit sizes to cater to diverse needs.
According to a report, URA had previously been faulted for not prescribing a minimum unit size.
