Can be found in Whampoa and Queenstown

According to 99.co, terrace HDB flats can be found at Whampoa and Queenstown.

These were public housing developed by the Singapore Improvement Trust (HDB's predecessor) in the 1950s.

HDB took over the terrace flats in the 1960s and 1970s and they were re-issued with 99-year leases.

Unlike landed houses, these terrace flats do not come with parking space.
