Hong Kong - these are your normal privately-developed condo complexes.



They usually have recreation facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, cafes, etc. Many of them are built on top of malls, which makes things even more convenient. The best Hong Kong housing innovation IMO is the apartment complexes on top of a mall on top of an MTR station (of course, the MTR Corp. would be one of the developers of these).

On the lower end, government housing projects are also 40-50 storey blocks but much less sophisticated in appearance. Facilities are more basic.

On the higher end, luxury developments have more interesting architecture and improved facilities. The most valued (i.e. expensive) luxury, however, is the view outside the window.

In Toronto Canada ( Suburbs) you can find these




the prices however in the GTA have gone up alot. My family bought a 2000 sqft house for $237000 and we sold it for 330000. About 10 years ago you could of gotten a 3000 sqft house for $237000. Houses in other parts of canada such as ottawa, parts of northern ontario are much cheaper.

^ I hate those homes with the garages that stick out like that, they seem to be improving that problem though.

In Finland, mostly middle-sized single apartment or row-houses like these:








but also apartment buildings like this renovated commieblock 1km from where I live:


In these suburbs it's often impossible to tell which are middle-class apartment houses, as the social structure is very mixed. There are often some cheap rental apartment buildings in an areas othervice dominated by middle-class ownership apartments, just to avoid other areas to develop into nasty poor-only ditricts.

Funny;)

This is more like it:

Norway outside Oslo: almost 100% of the population is middle class, and live mostly in single attatched houses or rowhouses, like these.






Oslo: More rich people and more poor people, but still a big middle class in international context. Most live in apartments like these.
