KUALA LUMPUR – The government will build 1,536 units of houses under the 1Malaysia Civil Servants Housing Project (PPA1M) in Bukit Jalil by 2018.
Federal Territory Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said PPA1M would be sold to government servants at RM150,000 to RM200,000 a unit.
He said PPA1M would be developed based on a smart sharing concept with the developer whereby the government would not finance the project.
“The government will not issue a single sen to finance the project, all costs will be borne by selected developers,” he told reporters after launching the Parkhill Residence exhibition room here, today.
He said the PPA1M units would be sold to civil servants working around Kuala Lumpur.
Tengku Adnan said the government was also discussing the building of Council Homes (Rumah Bujang), which would give priority to youths working in Kuala Lumpur to rent, around Kampung Keramat.
“Council Homes will have several rooms in the form of dormitories which are rented for RM50 a month,” he said.
He said the project is expected to be able to be launched in two to three months’ time near the Keramat LRT station.
He said the government would also launch several more affordable housing projects in Kepong at RM200,000 a unit.
In the meantime, Tengku Adnan said the ministry always monitored all housing developers around Kuala Lumpur to ensure all projects were completed on time.
“We always monitor. In fact, we have withdrawn the licences of two or three developers who could not complete their projects according to specifications,” he added. – BERNAMA
