Abstract

While sustainability has been under heated debate in the past 20 years, practical issues such as housing sustainability have been overlooked. This research introduces a two-tier analytical framework based on the environmental, economic and social dimensions of housing sustainability. This provides a market-oriented understanding on the issue of housing sustainability. The findings suggest that a balanced, yet flexible, housing policy which emphasizes the coordinated functioning of both the public and the private sectors in the housing market. This calls for more attention from the government to older, lower income districts and the needs of present generations.
