AbstractAs an essential component of the built environment, housing has a critical role to play in the pursuit of sustainable development. There are three dimensions in housing sustainability covering the environmental, sociocultural, and economic aspects. These three dimensions are interlocked. Their common concerns are the sociocultural preconditions for the production and consumption of environmentally friendly housing, and an acceptable quality of housing affordable by all income groups of this and future generations. Their respective specific concerns are the toll of housing activities on the natural environment, the social wellbeing of residential communities, the preservation of housing heritage for enhancing cultural continuity, and the economic viability of housing production and consumption activities.
