SummaryThe apartment buildings were built for low-income families by KNHC (Korea National Housing Cooperation) in new apartments’ area, Cheonju, Korea, located about 300km south west of Seoul. The community is leased apartments for 1 215 families, and 55-80m2/family. The national rental housing is a sort of public rental housing constructed with government financing and the National Housing Fund, and is rented to people who are houseless, or have low income, for a long-term and low price. KNHC purchases and repairs multi-unit tenement housing, and rents them to the vulnerable people who are living downtown at 30% of the market price so that they can dwell at their practical income level.
