Five projects to be revived
14/10/2003 The Star

FIVE of the 14 abandoned housing projects in Penang will be revived by Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd (SPNB), the national housing company.

Another eight are to be revived by the developer, project manager and appointed turnkey contractor, State Housing, Entrepreneur Development and Cooperative Committee chairman Datuk Abdul Rashid Abdullah said.

The Taman Pekatra project in South Seberang Prai is in the process of obtaining Occupation Certificate (OC) for its Phase One, he said.

Projects taken over by SPNB, he added, were Taman Cemerlang at Bandar Baru Air Itam, Fettes Villa at Mount Erskine, Taman Sri Bayu at Bayan Lepas and Taman Sejahtera as well as Taman Widuri and Taman Sri Bayu in Seberang Prai.

The other projects revived or in the process of being revived were Taman Sri Semarak at Bandar Baru Air Itam, Taman Terubong Indah (Majestic Heights) at Paya Terubong, Villa Emas Evani at Jalan Bukit Dumbar and Pangsapuri Widuri, Taman Malwira and three housing projects by Penang Regional Development Authority (Perda) in Seberang Prai.

Abdul Rashid said both Pangsapuri Widuri and Taman Sri Bayu were expected to obtain OC at the end of the year.

Projects taken over by SPNB were mainly at the discussion stage on revival plans, he added.

Abdul Rashid was replying to a written question by Lee Hack Teik (BN – Pengkalan Kota)at the State Assembly, who wanted to know the state's plans to revive abandoned housing projects in the state.

“The allocation for revival of abandoned housing projects as proposed in the national budget recently is not channelled to the state but to SPNB and monitored by the Ministry,” he said.
