Quick question. Why doesn't Singapore build more high-rise high density residential near the CBD? It seems that the exceedingly high price of housing should justify developers building height-wise in response? If there are more subtle socio-political factors at play, please do let me know as I'd be very much interested.

Well I am not too sure but these could be the reasons


They are trying to decentralize, they even build many "CBD" outside their financial and Orchard shopping CBD such as. Jurong Lake District, Tampines Central, Changi biz city, etc


Hardly can be find any residential buildings in financial CBD. Most of the skyscrapers for residential are build in Orchard area.

Also the height restriction due to nearby military airbase which explains the tallest residential only at 250m. Even in some Areas near CBD are limited to less than 15 storey


Moreover Singapore government want to ensure a green city thus u can see many trees and gardens among the highrises. This is why they are called the garden city and totally different from. Hk which is super dense

For example below is the orchard district, can be seen they emphasize on greenery


And many new green areas in main CBD
