High-Rises VS Low-Rises

Who prefers low-rises to high-rises, and why?

Thank you. In fact that was a question. The assumption was that many people prefer high-rises for various reasons, esp the views. However, in some areas the lands are more suiitable for low-rise developments. In that case what are the advantages that you see as a client / resident?

Any productive thoughts on that to share? Otherwise, thank you for reading.

I believe it makes much difference if it is a landed property. In case it is a low-rise residential condominium, could it be considered a house? Would it have any advantages over a high-rise?

Cheers.

most Japanese build own new house after getting marriage . it mean the japanese prefer a single house.
own land is still so important for the Japanese. maybe Japanese roots are agricultural people




like this



as for infrastructure, most Japanese region is well maintaind even in rural
we dont worry about the security because of safe.
It is the same anywhere for the education.

It depends on the use of the building, and the cost of land. Efficiency of money and function.
For big cities, like capital cities, BKK, KL, JKT, MNL, SPORE, etc, highrises will be perfect solution.

For me personally, both are good. The more important thing is how we manage the space for the optimum advantage. But highrises will create more breathtaking landscape tho.

True about the capital cities but high rises are within the city centre. Suburbs are mostly low-rise.

True. Yet in Bkk for instance we have both low-rises and high-rises scattering around in both locations, downtown and suburbs. We also have restrictions to the land use, certain areas are meant for certain purposes and only in certain areas you can build a high-rise. In the view of a developer, yes they would think about how they can earn and can afford to make the most out of the plot of land they've got. What I was wondering is in the eyes of real buyers and investors what do they actually think of living and investing in a low-rise.

Personally, it does not make much difference to me because even if I have to buy let's say a condo in a high-rise I'd choose to stay down below for safety purposes. I don't really make much use of the common facilities, and when I have to I think a low-rise provides more common space per condo unit (depending on developments though. The difference could be just that if I stay in a high-rise and if it is a good development I could have a smarter address as people whould be able to locate where I am.

For me, it doesn't matter if it's a high-rise or low-rise, as long as it's near to my place of work and other city amenities.

Usually though, it's the high-rises that provide that convenience; which leaves office workers, like most of us, prefering to live in high-rises.

But ultimately, it would be good to live in a low rise, or a house that you can call your own; with its own lawn; and more importantly, a land title that's under your name. That sounds a lot more sweeter, isn't it?
