Abstract: This chapter examines the greening and ecology promotion effort in high-rise housing environment. Urban greening encapsulates the strategies that protect and restore ecology within the urban area. Despite rapid urbanization, Singapore has emphasized tree-planting, landscaping and open space provision to maximize its environmental capital. The aim is to make Singapore a better place to live. Rather than treating the space between tall buildings as a loss of valuable building or for parking spaces, in Singapore, such space increasingly is being greened, and specifically created as part of the total living environment to give heart to the high-rise community. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
