Abstract: We started this book with a description of two cities: Hong Kong and Singapore. These two cities are frequently compared along a number of dimensions. Economically, Hong Kong and Singapore are among some of the world's most competitive cities. Socially, they have provided access to housing and rehoused a greater proportion of their populations in high-rise public housing in recent decades. Environmentally, they are increasingly considered among the region's top 10 cities in international quality of life surveys. Against the growing global fascination with urban high-rise, what can we learn from these two cities' experiences?. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
