To enable everybody to afford a house, affordable housing was introduced and developed throughout the world. But there's an issues with current affordable housing development, especially the sustainability of these affordable housing, especially from environmental aspects. Several initiatives have been done to improve current sustainability, but current initiatives lack of spatial indicators to assess the sustainability level, from environmental aspects. This study focus on assessment of sustainability level from environmental aspect. The assessment method consists of 3 main components; the green space availability, proximity to water features, and proximity of flood areas. The results show that most of the affordable housing in this study area was less sustainable in term of environmental aspects.
