Association to build 5,000 high-rise units in Malay heritage areas

The Penang Malays Association (Pemenang) is planning to build 5,000 apartment units with a built-up area of not less than 1,000sq ft each in George Town.

Its president Datuk Seri Mohd Yussof Latiff said the units would be built on 11.33ha of land, among others in Kampung Makam, Kampung Dodol, Jalan Datuk Keramat, Jalan Perak, Jalan Sungai Pinang and Jalan Patani.

It was reported last year that the association, through its property arm PIEMPIPI (Pemenang) Bhd, was holding discussions with Amanah Raya Bhd (ARB) to develop the land in George Town and turn it into a Malay heritage area.

He said Pemenang would seek the cooperation of the state Islamic Religious Department and the state Islamic Religious Council to implement the project.

“The state government is also supportive of the plan. We will soon hold talks with the Federal Government on this.

“We are planning to recover land which have been mortgaged. This way, the Malay community would be able to live comfortably in the city with sufficient amenities,” he said at a press conference to commemorate Pemenang’s 84th anniversary.

At the function, he handed over a framed photograph featuring the country’s nine Rulers and the ‘7 Wasiat’ that was articulated in the The Federation of Malaya Agreement on Aug 5, 1957 to the association.

He said the photograph was an enlarged version of a similar one from his personal collection.
