Have you ever wondered what were the HDB flat prices in the past, but have a hard time digging for prices around various news websites and forums? In 2016 I spent about 10 hours compiling selling price ranges of all BTO flats in one Excel database that you can download and compare flat prices by town, by flat type, etc. I update database with every BTO launch (usually every 3 months).
Singapore Improvement Trust set up in 1927 and focused on infrastructure, it also built small scale public housing, such as Tiong Bahru (started in 1936) and Queenstown (started in 1952 and completed by HDB in 1960s). In 32 years, SIT built only 23,000 flats, housing 8.8% of Singapore population in 1959.
Several people asked me when the page was last updated.
If today I correct a spelling error, can be considered updated today?
Last update matter less… instead, please report if I forgot to add something, or suggest what else to add, and I may update it today!
I explored all estates of Singapore via Google Earth and screened several HDB blocks with distinctive architectural styles. The voting results may influence the future of apartments designed by me.

Large amount of votes towards Pinnacle & Duxton, showing that people are voting for best locations and not for architectural styles as this poll is intended. Due to this reason I removed Pinnacle when I remade the poll in 2015.
I explored all corners of Singapore via Google Earth and screened the best houses I saw, a variety of bungalows, semi-detached and terraced houses. Do you know other houses? Tell me the address and I may add in the poll. The voting results may influence the future of houses designed by me.
Singapore houses are the most beautiful in the world. Due to country size, only few people, the rich class can afford a landed property. Terraced houses have usually 4-5-6 bedrooms and costs 2 to 5 million SGD (1.5 to 4 million USD), depending of location, while bungalows can be over 10 millions.

If you are looking for a database of Singapore MRT and LRT stations in Excel format, I created an Excel database for you in November 2019, copy-pasted from Wikipedia and visually enhanced in Excel to match the style of my other spreadsheets “Made by Teoalida”. In January 2020 I expanded database adding postal codes and GPS coordinates (sourced from OneMap.sg) for all stations that are opened or under construction.
