HDB took over JTC and HUDC in 1982. Phase III and IV are HUDC flats built by HDB, last HUDC was completed in 1987. HUDC was replaced by Executive HBD flats built since 1984. See also HUDC and the story of housing windfalls.

Total: 22 HUDC estates, 9776-9798 units.

I made the above list myself in 2011, because I was not able to find any official list of Housing and Urban Development Company estates. That times, a single source said that HUDC built 19 estates totaling 7750 units without listing individual estates, but personally I identified 21 estates. In 2012 I found ST Property saying 18 HUDC estates totaling 7731 units, but there are 3 more estates which a real estate agent replied in PropertyGuru that they are HUDC estates too undergoing privatization, they being managed by other government boards, thus HDB Annual Reports never counted them as public housing.

Beside the 22 estates built by HUDC (or by HDB after takeover as HUDC flats), HDB Annual Reports shows under HDB management also 38 HUDC units in Central Area (within 280-unit Pearl Bank Apartment) and 98 HUDC units in Pasir Ris Avenue / Terrace / Heights (terraced and semi-detached housing), built by private developers and takeover by HUDC to be sold as public housing. I was able to prove their location using HDB Map Service.

Starting from Annual Report 2015, HDB no longer include HUDC units under HDB management. All HUDC estates were privatized, except the 38 units in Pearl Bank and 98 units in Pasir Ris which their status is unknown but were removed from Annual Reports causing the total number of units in Central Area to drop by 38.

Source of info: the HDB Annual Reports, old press releases on, and various blogs with news about HUDC privatization, this is why there are so many empty cells, question marks and some values may be not accurate.

Note: Amberville is written in HDB Press Releases as Phase I/II, Braddell View is not written, while Chancery Court is written as Phase II.

The first HUDC flats: Lagoon View & Laguna Park, under construction on reclaimed land in the East Coast (1975) and present-day aerial view.

The last HUDC flats to be privatised: Braddell View.

HDB launched HUDC privatization scheme in 1995. The privatization process is complex and takes about 1 year to complete. The estate is converted in strata-tiled and apartment owners became legal owners of the land under them.

After privatization, owners may decide to sell their estate in a collective sale (en-bloc) to a private developer. Most HUDC estates are built with large spaces between blocks, so if it is demolished, a private developer can maximize the plot area and built 2-4 times more apartments than the original estate.

The reason for which HUDC flats are transacted on resale market at prices over $1 million, much higher that HDB Executive flats, is exactly the en-bloc potential, if a developer buy the estate for redevelopment, may compensate each flat owner with $2 million.

Initially I guessed privatisation date using Annual Reports (dwelling units under management) and see in which years the number changed, oldest HDB Annual report found was from 1994, found via, showing 5411 HUDC units under management, none of them in towns plenty of HUDC estates such as Marine Parade, giving impression that they were already privatized before 1995. This because Phase I/II estates were under self-management thus not included in units under HDB management.

I added official privatization date in 2014, sourced from, by this way I also organized the table by phases.

Few HUDC blocks were demolished before HDB launched privatization scheme: Anthony Garden (196 units) and blocks 342-343 from Hougang N7 (140 units).

HUDC flats

Biggest HUDC apartments are in Chancery Court, with maisonettes in 180-210 sqm range.

I have never saw HUDC floor plans, but based on the interior photos available on real estate websites, I can tell that Phase III and IV HUDC floor plans have similar layouts like HDB Executive Apartments / Maisonettes built in 1980s, but are a little bigger (usually 150-165 sqm).



  1. Why is Neptune Court Not Privatized in line with other HUDC estates , even though it is managed by Ministry of Finance. Is it not the duty of the body responsible who has privatized other HUDC estates ? Why is so ? and where is the gap ?

  2. Alida, would you know the guidelines to privatising the estates currently managed by MOF? We have emailed MOF several times just to be led in circles and not actually constructive actionable guidelines which can lead us to a privatisation. Thanks

  3. Interested in Enbloc

    Serangoon North HUDC has been developed into Affinity condo.
    Chancery Court has also been sold to Far East.

    While HUDC enbloc is one method that developers obtain land for re-developement, there is also Government Land Sales (GLS) method.

    For instance, this prime piece of land was released through the GLS and marketed for sale by CEL


    1. You CANNOT purchase HUDC floor plans online if that’s what you ask. HUDC owners may have floor plans and may post it online when they post flats for sale. Also one of my friends went to national Library looking for old HDB annual reports, he found also other publications related to housing including HUDC original sale brochures from 1980s and took photos page by page (I have photos in my computer, quality is bad but may be better than nothing?), read more

  4. Hi Teoalida, thanks for compiling this! There is an update for your info. Pearl Bank has been demolished and will be One Pearl Bank (new condo).
