5 'A' 135sqm/1453sqft
5 'I' 123sqm/1313 sqft (floor plans: 12345)
5 'S' 121sqm/1300sqft (floor plans: 1)

Executive flat

EA (Exec Apartment) 141sqm/1518sqft (single storey) (floor plans: 1)
EM (Exec Maisonette) 145sqm/1560sqft (double storey) (floor plans: 1)
(double story, 3 bedroom/bath upstairs, balcony+additional room)
MG (Multi-Generation) 165sqm/1776sqft


Miscell Flats (varies) – These are flats created by purchasing and joining 2 adjacent units. Such units are considered as one and have one address, utility meter and so on.

eg. a 3+3 is created by combining (2) 3-rm units and building a passageway through.


Not all flat types exist in each estate, and a 4 'A' layout in one estate might differ from another.

Also, floor area are estimates as newer flats are generally smaller, while upgrading of older flats would have added additional rooms/balcony/toilet.
