Hijau E-Komuniti (Affordable Housing Scheme)

July 1st, 2014 Leave a comment

Hijau E-Komuniti, a strategic masterplan by Penang State Government with a keen emphasis on green living and long term sustainability. This development is expected to provide 11,800 units of affordable housing for 59,000 residents. Meticulously planned down to the finest detail, the development will be implemented in stages through multiple phases.

As its name implies,  Hijau E-Komuniti is pleasantly surrounded by lush greenery and the wonders of nature. The ideal backdrop for green living, it features:

  • 2-km Green Lung
  • Lush landscaping
  • Desirable location close to the sea and surrounded by the rich floras and faunas of Batu Kawan
  • A multitude of recreational spaces
  • Dynamic integrated township
  • Affordable housing and conducive lifestyle
  • Equipped with the latest public amenities and facilities
  • Strategic location – Gateway to Penang
  • Variety of layout plans available to suit individual preferences
  • Satellite city, commercial centres, theme park, Batu Kawan Stadium, Batu Kawan Industrial Park as well as higher learning institutions situated within its vicinity ensure excellent job opportunities and investment value

Hijau E-Komuniti is envisioned to rise as the Northern Corridor Economic Region’s (NCER) main focal point when fully developed. With an estimated 59,000 residents and a wide array of amenities, infrastructure, industrial areas as well as commercial centres within its vicinity, it is set to grow at a rapid pace and ultimately become a self-sustaining ecosystem of its own.

A 20-minute drive through the 2nd Penang Bridge brings you to Bayan Lepas, Penang’s main industrial hub. Additionally a wide range of amenities and facilities including schools, wet markets, banks, health clinics, hypermarkets and other industrial parks are only within a short drive away.

Hijau E-Komuniti will be developed in 5 phases and the construction of phase 1 is already in progress.

    Seaview + Lake view. Super.

    Looks crowded for the layout, but it is only 11,800 units for so many blocks, why looks so crowded?

    @Kent

    only 11800 units? you know, 11800 units = 12 N-park and N-park consists of 4 blocks of 30-storey building. Imagine 48 blocks of 30-storey buildlings, this is considered as very crowded for me.

    Those keep mentioning foreign worker in every condo project in Penang Property Talk one are kind of stupid. How many low medium cost or low cost apartments already out there and keep increasing? Foreign workers nowadays thinking to spend more their hard earn money to rent a more decent condo instead of LMC? Or foreign worker nowadays want to occupy one condo per 1 or 2 persons? Talk like foreign workers some kind of insect that multiply so quickly and invade every new condo in Penang.

    the whole batu kawan is currently and for the next few years have medium and low income community only…. plus adding affordable housing scheme…. and concurrently making an uptrend commercial precinct by aspen, ikea ikano and more…. these overall planning doesnt sit well i think…. i am completely more than happy for both the affordable scheme and ikea cum commercial precinct… i completely respect PDC for such a social responsibity affordable project. and also very glad that and upmarket commercial district is coming to southern seberang prai… but both existing juxtopositioned is something not good i feel… it is undeniable that those community there and future community of the affordable scheme will not have the kind of civic sense expected… the civic sense will be low.. so the society in batu kawan will be the type of third world people, littering, grueling, rempiting, drive mad, mindless,.. so i wonder how the future uptrend commercial precinct is going to both maintained and perform. the mutiara damasara ikea ikano area is surrounded by hotels, high standard residential enclaves, universities, students and tourists… so the whole commercial area is completely vibrant and there are continual customers and demand. so the difference is very very huge.. so the town planner for the whole of batu kawan must be a…..

    @Goppal how can you assume tht those purchasing the project will have a “third world country” mind. i have accompanied a friend whos an engineer to sign the SNP last week and we met many of our friends there who are also university graduates there to sign their snp.. u canot assume that those who are not from a strong financial background to be less “civilised” than those whose their parents can fork out 70k downpayment to help their kids pay for their 700k luxury condo…an engineer whose earning 2.8-3k a month can only comfortably pay for 200k loan..

    @sss
    Oh my GOD…Are you saying that all these affordable housing in Batu Kawan are at RM200K?
    Why not you guys consider Single Storey Terrace at Machang Bubok or Alma area at slightly higher price?

    Unless working in BK, else…not really worth it if it is RM200K for a small apartment..Especially in this area..

    My personal opinion only..I thought it’s RM75k to RM150k then considered reasonable.
