Housing Bureau picks 4 more sites to build light public housing units
The bureau now has eight sites for the project.
Kai Tak, Ngau Tau Kok, Chai Wan and Siu Lam will become sites for the Housing Bureau’s light public housing (LPH) project.
The bureau now has eight sites for the project, including those in Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Sheung Shui.
Within five years, the Housing Bureau aims to complete 30,000 LPH units and of which, half will be built in urban areas.
The internal floor area of these units will range from 13 sqm to 31 sqm.
Compared to the similar design of transitional housing, the average unit cost of a low-rise LPH block of around three storeys is $530,000 in money-of-the-day prices, similar to the $550,000 subsidy for each transitional housing unit.
For high-rise blocks of around 17 to 19 storeys, the average unit cost is about $650,000.
