This study sought to select the appropriate sites for the housing projects in Thailand and Malaysia Border Trade areas. The Modified Sieve Analysis was adopted as the instrument for searching and selecting sites. The Modified Sieve Analysis is the technique used to assess the urban expansion, which has been modified from the traditional sieve analysis by overlaying the map with its scores and calculate the total scores for selecting the suitable sites for the urban and housing development. The findings from this study help identify the suitable sites to build housing projects in the four cities – three sites for each.
