The estate was planned as Green Form Subsidised Home Ownership Scheme to be sold to public housing tenants.[3] However, concerns were raised that this may impinge on the quota for public rental housing and further lengthen waiting times. Finally, the plan was put aside and the estate was changed to public rental housing.[4]
