Khaw says skyrise greening is seeing "wonderful" results
National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan says Singapore's greening campaign is moving skywards with wonderful results.
He said in a blog post today that Singapore is among the leading cities in skyrise greening.
There are over 50 hectares of rooftop greenery in public and private buildings.
He highlighted the greening efforts in public housing estates, which he said will help realise the vision of providing Singaporeans with housing in a garden.
Mr Khaw said many residents have been enjoying lush, green spaces at the rooftops of their multi-storey car parks.
The Housing and Development Board has built 108 multi-storey car parks with rooftop greenery, adding about 20 hectares of green space.
Another 111 multi-storey car parks with rooftop greenery are being built.
The HDB plans to add nine hectares of rooftop greenery in existing multi-storey car parks over the next few years.
