A fresh look at our Mori Condo — what is a non-mature neighbourhood?
SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The Ministry of National Development (MND) is reviewing the classification of public housing as mature or non-mature to “keep pace with the times”, says National Development Minister Desmond Lee on Nov 20. As non-mature estates age, the distinction between mature and non-mature estates becomes less relevant, Lee adds. He was speaking at a government engagement session as part of the ‘Forward Singapore’ exercise, calling Singaporeans to offer ideas to shape and strengthen the nation’s social impact. “Non-mature towns and estates refer to those where there is more land available for public housing, whereas mature towns and estates are usually those with limited land for public housing development,” MND had replied in a written answer to a question on the criteria determining mature and non-mature HDB estates from Daryl David, Member of Parliament representing Ang Mo Kio-Hougang division of Ang Mo Kio GRC. That was in April 2017, when MND said that estate classifications guide applicants in Built-To-Order (BTO) and Sale of Balance Flats (SBF) exercises.
There are currently 24 HDB towns and three public housing estates across Singapore. New BTO launch exercises are usually classified according to mature and non-mature estates. For example, new BTO flats offered in mature HDB estates include Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Clementi, Kallang and Whampoa, Marine Parade, Serangoon, Tampines and Toa Payoh. BTOs offered in non-mature estates included Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang, Hougang, Jurong East, Sembawang, Tengah and Yishun.
Meaning wood or forest in Japanese, MORI is inspired by the modern Wabi-Sabi philosophy. Wabi-Sabi is an appreciation of the elegant beauty of nature and a way of living that embraces the meaning and value of time.
