GEORGE TOWN: Eligible folk will now be able to own a 700sq ft low medium-cost (LMC) flat in the city.

A total of 1,320 units of LMC and medium-cost (MC) flats will be built on a 2.91ha land in Jalan S.P. Chelliah under the state’s People’s Housing Project (PPR).

Komtar assemblyman Ng Wei Aik said the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) was holding several meetings with the Penang Municipal Council (MPPP), which owns the land, to discuss the development.

He said the LMC units would cost about RM72,500 per unit while the price for the MC units had yet to be finalised.

“We are in the last stages of planning and in the midst of fine-tuning the plan so that the projects will have a multi-storey car park, rooftop garden, futsal/badminton courts, a community hall, kindergarten, surau and other facilities,” he told reporters during a site inspection yesterday.

Ng said there would be two blocks of LMC and MC flats and each block would be between 20 and 25-storey high.

He added that the MPPP quarters currently located at the site would be demolished for the project.

“There are also eight Hindu temples here which will be relocated within the vicinity to make way for the project,” he said.

MPPP Planning Committee alternate chairman Felix Ooi Keat Hin said they had also identified a 2.9ha of land in Padang Tembak and another 5.26ha of land in Jalan Perak for LMC units. He said work on the project in Jalan S.P. Chelliah was scheduled to start by year-end.
