In , National Environment Agency officers entered the house for an inspection after neighbours complained of mosquito breeding. In , a contractor hired by the Building and Construction Authority entered the house to erect a temporary roof. A worker clearing rubble from a bedroom then found another set of bones - a human skull and a thigh bone.
The house, which sits on 1, sq ft of land, or about the size of two four-room Housing Board flats, was missing a front door and windows when ST visited last week. Ms Tricia Tan, an estate agent from real estate company Knight Frank who is handling the auction, said there was some interest in bidding for the house. The 31, sq ft property at 2F, Gerald Crescent, belongs to retired physiotherapist Chung Khin Chun, 91, who nearly lost it when former tour guide Yang Yin, 43, tried to swindle her out of it.
A year later, Yang moved into her bungalow and brought his family here. He also got her to make a will where he stood to inherit everything, including the house. Yang's ruse was exposed by Madam Mok in , who spirited her aunt away from the house when Yang was overseas.
Madam Mok also started a series of legal actions, including evicting Yang from the bungalow and revoking the LPA and the will. In June , year-old Chinese national Liu Hong Mei, was killed by her lover and supervisor Leong Siew Chor, who chopped her body up into seven parts. It is believed to have taken place between the mornings of June 15 and 16 at Leong's Geylang Housing Board flat on the ninth floor. He told police that he dragged her body into the kitchen where he stripped her and pulled her body into the kitchen toilet.
Using a chopper, he cut her body into pieces. Her body parts were split into seven bags and boxes and dumped in the Kallang and Singapore rivers. From March , the time bar for divorced couples to each own a subsidised flat has been reduced from 5 years to 3 years, from the date of divorce. This change benefits reconstructed families, such as divorcees who remarry. Each 3Gen flat features 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms 2 en-suites , with an internal floor area of about square metres.
HDB home ownership does not cater only to families but to singles as well. These apartments, equipped with elderly-friendly and other safety features, are customised for independent and elderly living. In , the 2-room Flexi Scheme , a new housing option to better cater to the diverse housing needs of families, singles and elderly, was introduced. This housing option merged and replaced the existing 2-room flat scheme and Studio Apartment scheme.
Under the 2-room Flexi Scheme, elderly citizens aged 55 and above have the flexibility of choosing the length of lease on their 2-room flat, based on their age, needs, and preferences. Under the SPS, half of the quota is set aside for the elderly who apply for a flat near their existing flat or near their married child. These provide a greater assurance of success to the elderly who would like to right-size to a a 2-room Flexi flat. In , the first successful prefabrication contract was awarded to build 3- and 4-room flats in Hougang, Tampines, and Yishun. Prefabrication technology involves the production of building components off-site and assembling them on-site.
This expertise is indispensable to our building programme as it greatly reduces dependence on manual labour and increases site productivity. The Pinnacle Duxton is an example of a development that has achieved engineering breakthroughs, as almost the entire storey building was modularised and prefabricated off-site. This is a comprehensive framework that covers social, economic and environmental considerations, and is aligned with the national sustainability objectives in the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint SSB.
In March , we launched our first eco-precinct, Treelodge Punggol. This precinct integrates environmental features that focus on effective energy, water and waste management. The successful implementation of the eco-precinct is aligned with our direction towards environmentally-friendly designs for our residential projects.

This project bears testament to our commitment to support and enhance the quality of life in our living environment, achieving a long-term balance of environmental stewardship, economic development, and social well-being. Punggol Eco-Town is a 'living laboratory' to test-bed new sustainable initiatives in urban planning, design and green building solutions. It is a good platform to build capabilities and develop new solutions while providing a quality living environment. Many sustainable initiatives are test-bedded in Punggol.
These initiatives can be considered for replication in other new developments, after they are proven to be feasible, scalable and cost effective. All new HDB projects launched from January come with a standard suite of eco-features to help build a greener, cleaner, and healthier environment for Singaporeans. The pilot at Yuhua was completed in The design of the solar photovoltaic systems has been optimised to maximise solar power generation for each HDB residential block, with the aim of achieving net zero-energy for common services.
The Solar Capability Building Programme also led to the development of the SolarNova Programme, which was launched in to accelerate the deployment of solar PV in Singapore, through the promotion and aggregation of solar demand across government agencies.

Under the SolarNova Programme, a target of MWp of solar energy by has been set for the public sector. This special housing project is the result of an international design competition and is our first storey development with unique features such as sky bridges, an integrated carpark, and a host of commercial and social facilities. The Pinnacle Duxton stands out as an example of how we use innovative solutions to confront the social, physical and economic challenges of meeting housing needs in an urban setting.
The project, which has won numerous global awards, has transformed Singapore's housing landscape and marked a significant milestone in Singapore's public housing journey. Each flat was designed with a flat floor, beam-free ceiling, and structural columns located along the perimeter of the flat. This provided flexibility as buyers could choose varied configurations, and reconfigure the internal flat layout as part of their renovation plans to suit their changing lifestyle needs.
Privacy is not compromised as the flats were designed as 2 separate units with interconnecting doors. This scheme has since been enhanced into the MGPS. The development consists of 2 storey residential blocks connected to a shopping mall on the lower levels, and an air-conditioned bus interchange directly linked to the existing Clementi MRT station.
The Clementi Mixed Development displays creativity in overcoming challenging site constraints and our imaginative approach to town planning. Wide community spaces and generous green features will also be incorporated to enhance the living environment. To develop well-designed and planned living environments, town planning is continuously refined to include new ideas and feedback from our residents.
We work closely with relevant authorities such as the Urban Redevelopment Authority on plans for land use and the provision of facilities and infrastructure. Each HDB town has a Town Centre that functions as the core area of activity, where larger commercial facilities, train stations, and bus interchanges can be found. Unique identities are also given to each town through the inclusion of landmarks and architectural features.
Master plans for older towns are also reviewed under the Estate Renewal Strategy ERS programme, and this helps guide the rejuvenation process for these towns so as to ensure optimal land use for the benefit of residents. Besides building better quality flats in new housing estates, we also provide our older estates with a new lease of life through the Estate Renewal Strategy.
