    Some of those low floors buildings will forever remain low floors! Don't bet too much on hope and dream that plot ratios will increase just because it is now low!

    Look for those with lower plot ratios at the moment as well.

    Leave the engineering feat to engineers.

    Most important is how rare low floor developments would be in the future.

    But generally, it would be a safer bet than developments with tall buildings and every area developed.

    For 99-years leasehold properties, difficult to bet to see much future because gov can just wait for lease to run out by end of 99 years before they adjust plot ratio higher and gov huat ah! BUT You get $0! Oh wait, you can actually be made to pay for pulling down of your estate buildings and returning empty land to gov!

    The vast majority of housing (all types) in Singapore are below 30 years old.

    So Govt can afford to wait for 69 to 95 years to wait for all LH to be returned to state?

    It’s either not facing reality or just plain naive.
