More homes on the way

Seeing for themselves: Visitors checking out a show unit at the PDC sales gallery.

Penangites can now view the state government’s affordable housing units at the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) sales gallery in Bandar Cassia.

The first phase of 520 units at Batu Kawan has started and is expected to be ready in early 2017.

This is the first affordable housing project among the 10 planned on the island and the mainland by the state government.

“A total of 11,800 affordable units will be built on the 80.94ha of land which will be developed over 10 years by a Singapore-based developer,” said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng during his opening speech at the PDC sales gallery on Sunday.

He said the ‘Green E-Community’ project would be developed based on good quality, design and concept.

“This will be the first eco-friendly project in Penang that concentrates on green environment and community infrastructure,” he said.

Lim added that the 800sq ft and 1,000sq ft units would cost RM72,500 and RM220,000 respectively.

“The sales gallery will exhibit three different types of units,” he said.

Also present were state Town and Country Planning and Housing Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo, PDC general manager Datuk Rosli Jaafar, Batu Kawan MP P. Kasturi Patto and Jawi assemblyman Soon Lip Chee.
