Hong Kong has the least affordable housing market in the world. The reason is that there is bad land management. The government owns all of the land in Hong Kong and people buy them by at auction. This is a way to avoid high taxes because 30% of the government revenues are from the land. The government came up with two solutions to solve the issue of the lack and the high housing prices. The first one is subdivided flats and the second solution is the cage home. However, it is unsanitary, people suffer from physical and mental health, families are living in an apartment that's the size of a parking space in the US, and much more issues that is caused by this kind of housing. The government has a goal to eliminate cages homes and subdivided flats in 2049. So several there are several solutions proposed to achieve this goal.
