關於居者有其屋計劃
About Home Ownership Scheme


The Home Ownership Scheme (HOS) is a major component of the current Hong Kong public housing system. It is a government subsidized-sale programme fully managed by the Hong Kong Housing Authority. It was first launched in the late-1970s as a policy address to encourage relatively affluent tenants from the public rental housing (PRH) scheme to vacate their flats for re-allocation to families of greater housing needs. It also provides home-ownership opportunities to families who could barely afford a flat in the private market, bridging the gap between affordable, sustainable housing and home-ownership.

Under the scheme, the government sells apartment flats with basic amenities to eligible public housing tenants at an affordable price below the market level, usually at a discount of up to 40%. However, there are appropriate measures introduced by the government to restrict the resale of flats in the second-hand market, and with that, the flat holders will have to pay a premium equal to the updated value of the discount given on the original purchase. This is to avoid any potential abuse of Hong Kong's precious public housing resources.





In 2003, the real estate crisis has forced the government to pause all the Home Ownership Scheme development indefinitely. In late-2011, the government announced to resume the Home Ownership Scheme since more and more Hong Kong people have expressed their concerns on the increasing difficulties for purchasing a flat in the private market.

By now, the population has become more affluent and the public has higher expectations for public housing standards. The Housing Authority, therefore, builds homes with better quality fittings and refined the designs and layouts of common facilities in the neighbourhood. It is believed that a higher home-ownership rate would lend social and political stability to Hong Kong.

A Note From The Author


Hong Kong, the City I am Living in...
Hey, I’m Kay (in Minecraft: KaytlynJay) from Hong Kong. Maybe you still haven't heard of Hong Kong yet, but never mind, here’s a quick link guiding you to explore more of this vibrant and dynamic metropolis in Asia. You'll probably be dazzled by our beautiful harbour and be amazed by our twinkling skyline! Hong Kong is a typical example where its contemporary urban design features great emphasis on modernist conception. The government had once standardized the design of public housing apartments, factories and schools to cater to the exponential growth in population. These uniformly designed structures are meant to be "copied and pasted" on an extensive scale, just for the purposes of fulfilling its designated mission: To maximize land efficiency, to minimize construction cost and to house the largest possible amount of people.

Hey! I was wondering..what kind of texture pack do you use? If it is your own custom one, will you ever plan on making a download for it? Thanks!

The project directory is now available.
This project will look good even with default 1.12 texture.
It was designed to have a simple appearance and mostly concrete blocks were used.
All projects of mine are now using a custom texture pack, which is an extraction based on IT-Project v2.2 128x. But for this project, it is no longer required.

The pack is also available in the project directory if you are interested. In fact, the pack is included in all of my projects that require a texture pack to view.
