In a Facebook post, Mr Lee shared that the projects will be located close to transport nodes like Dover, Buona Vista, and Kallang MRT stations. The projects will also be well-served by existing amenities and facilities.
“Given the attractive locations and attributes, these flats would naturally command higher market values,” he added.
Last year, the PLH model was introduced to ensure that HDB flats in central and prime locations continue to remain accessible and affordable to Singaporeans.
Although these units are priced with more subsidies given their high market values, future owners will have to pay a percentage of the resale price to HDB.

Another BTO project in Queensway Canopy will not come under the PLH model because it is located far from main transport modes and major retail establishments.
“Nonetheless, Queensway Canopy residents will still have access to essential amenities, such as supermarkets, food centres, and clinics. The project is also located next to the Rail Corridor, where residents will be able to enjoy a variety of recreational activities close to nature,” he said.
