After assessing the height of an apartment block relative to the neighbouring buildings, you need to consider the layout and design of the surrounding roads. Avoid moving into a building that faces an intersection or a T-junction. The sharp energy associated with these junctions rushes straight at such buildings, increasing the possibility of accidents and illness. It is also not advisable to move into a building that is located at the top of an intersection, i.e. with two roads flanking it and thereby squeezing the chi within the immediate environment, which can lead to health problems.

Ideally, your building should not be at the end of a cul-de-sac, as stagnant energy will accumulate and may translate into obstacles in your life. Living several buildings away from the end of the road will not present any problems, just avoid the one right at the end and those immediately adjacent.

You should also avoid buildings that have overhead pedestrian bridges or flyovers immediately in front or behind them. If you have to move into such a building, ensure your unit is above the level of the structure.

If you choose to live on a street that is curved, ensure you move into a building that is embraced by it, rather than one on the side that appears (when seen from above) to be being cut or sliced by the road.
