Property and construction-based PLB Engineer-ing Bhd is planning to start a RM2.6bil affordable housing project in Paya Terubong in mid-2017 on a 113-acre site.

Group executive chairman Datuk Seri Ong Choo Hoon told StarBiz at an AGM recently that the project would comprise 7,658 affordable units priced between RM300,000 and RM390,000.

“The project would be launched in stages over a six-year period.

“This year, we plan to kick off with the development of 1,280 affordable units with a gross development value of RM450mil,” he said.

Ong said the group planned to develop over 2,000 units of commercial and residential properties on the same site in the near future.

On the island, the group plans also in June to develop an RM150mil condominium project in Zoo Road.

“There are 206 units, of which 50 units will be priced between RM200,000 and RM300,000.

“The other units are priced from RM500,000 onwards,” he said.

In 2019, Ong said the group planned to develop an RM1bil mixed-development project on a 200-acre site in North Seberang Prai.

“We plan to develop landed property, apartments and shophouses on the site,” he added.

The group currently has over 100 acres of undeveloped land bank on the island and about 300 acres in Seberang Prai.

In a recent announcement to Bursa Malaysia, the group said it had unbilled sales of RM46mil from ongoing construction projects in Bukit Minyak, Prai and Penang island, which is expected to contribute to the group’s turnover over the next one year.

PLB said the property development segment for the group would continue with the development of the final phase of the Balik Pulau, Greenwish Garden at Batu Maung and Paya Terubong projects.

“Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the prospects of the group for the financial year 2017 remains positive,” PLB said.

For the first quarter ended Nov 30, 2016, PLB posted a net loss of RM503,000 on the back of a turnover of RM51.8mil.
