–Sub-Divided Units in Hong Kong Explained in Figures and Diagrams
Last week, a news article by South China Morning Post reported Emperor International Holdings, an investment company engaged in property development, is going to build the tiniest flat in Hong Kong with each unit measures 5.7 square meters. This size might be surprising at first sight, but may not on second thought—it’s Hong Kong, anyway.
In a recent survey by American research institute Demographia on global housing affordability, Hong Kong tops the list as the least affordable housing for the sixth straight years among all 376 markets globally. Against this backdrop, it’s becoming a fundamental question for residents here to ask—WHERE shall we stay?
For around 200,000 people the answer is sub-divided units (SDUs), the area of which might even be smaller than the “tiniest” one to be built.
