SINGAPORE - A new HDB flat type - the 3Gen Flat, will be available in the September edition of the HDB Build-To-Order exercise.
A blog post by Minister for National Development, Mr Khaw Boon Wan, on Saturday revealed that the new flat type will cater for multi-generational living under one roof, providing necessary privacy to both the elderly and younger couples, as well as being elderly-friendly, should the need arise.
The 3Gen Flat will be introduced at Saraca Breeze@Yishun.
Below is the full blog post by Mr Khaw:
HDB will soon launch its Sept BTO.
A new flat type, 3Gen Flat, will be offered in this BTO exercise. Naturally, many Singaporeans have been curious about the layout as it is a new product.
It will come with four bedrooms: two are main bedrooms with attached bathrooms, and the layout is sensitive to the needs of two families living under one roof. The living and dining areas are well-placed to facilitate interaction, whilst providing the necessary privacy to both the elderly and younger couples. The flats are also elderly-friendly, and will allow easy wheelchair movements, should the need arise.
These 3Gen flats will be introduced at Saraca Breeze @ Yishun, close to Khatib MRT Station. Within this new precinct, there will be an eating house, a minimart, four shops and a childcare centre.
The 3Gen flat will provide an additional option for multi-generation families who want to live together for mutual care and support.
