HDB said that the 3Gen flats launched between 2013 and 2016 had been well-received, with about eight in 10 units booked at launch.

Among the flats booked, 44 per cent were booked by first-time applicants while the remaining 56 per cent were booked by second-timers.

Since its launch in 2013, HDB has offered close to 1,500 3Gen flats across 24 projects including flats at Saraca Breeze @ Yishun, Punggol BayView, Tampines GreenRidge and Tampines GreenVerge.

The 3Gen flats in these four projects saw 100 per cent take-up, HDB said.

These flats with a floor area of about 115 sq m are designed with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are ensuite for added privacy.

Owners have to stay for a Minimum Occupation Period of five years, before the flat can be resold in the open market to other eligible multiple-generation families.
