Above 35 can, Citizen, PR I'm not sure. Think the biggest flat u can get is 3 rooms. Any changes, I'm not sure. See website below:

once singles are allowed to buy direct from HDB esp the smaller flats, the shoebox apmt from private sector will be negatively impacted

If u mean the shoebox aptm (condo),
I don't think so because they want to use the facilities (swimming pool, gym etc) there.

Depends on whether it is a shoebox swimming pool and gym. You should check some of those out. :laugh:

Can Single buy HDB unit directly HDB?

Yes, but with restrictions (only my proposal)

1. Can only buy 3-room or studio apt still is for single and not family.
2. Must stay in the unit and cannot rent out or sublet. Need to set heavy fine or punishment for breaking the rules.
3. Must sell the unit back to HDB at buying price+interest to curb speculation.
