With only around 15,000 new apartments being built and only a small percentage of this for Govt housing it will never get solved.

    Leung Chun-Ying said in his last address that it's the No. 1 priority. Only 75,000 new public housing flats will be built in the next 5 years (planned). This doesn't change for previous policies according to some.

    The living situation displayed on the picture you attached, is a common thing in HK?

    As a possible new resident in HK, should one be ready to accept an apartment of this size to begin with, or are bigger apartments plentyful?

    Bigger apartments are plentiful. And expensive.

    Yes it is common but the subdivided flat shown, if in say Kowloon is probably around 3 to 5,000 a month. In New Territories it will be less.

    Larger apartments are everywhere and a reasonable apartment in Kowloon will be about 8,000 to 10,000 a month.

    We could never afford this outside of Tung Chung. Anyway it's big enough. I would go smaller if we could, less work and never really use 2 of the rooms.

    Where do I live? or where do I spend in time in SS? I live outside tai po and travel through SS often, run there, shop there, have friends there.

    why do you ask?

    I will live in SS soon enough. Maybe we have seen each other at the only western bar in town.
