The state government has offered the bulk of the units at two affordable housing schemes on the island and in Batu Kawan to eligible first-time house buyers.
Penang Housing Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo (pic)said the state government had offered all the 883 units priced at RM200,000 for the affordable project at Jalan S.P. Chelliah.
“As for the units priced at RM300,000, we have offered 165 units to eligible buyers.
“There are now 30 units left.
“We have also offered 275 units of those priced at RM400,000, leaving only 46 units,” he said.
On the affordable scheme in Bandar Cassia Phase 1 in Seberang Prai, Jagdeep said they had offered all the 98 units priced at RM168,000, and 273 units priced at RM220,000.
He said the state would be showcasing 22,512 affordable properties at the forthcoming Star Property Fair, organised by Star Media Group Bhd, to be held from July 9-12 at Gurney Plaza and G Hotel.
“Penangites should come to the fair in big numbers to register for affordable housing projects by the state and the private sector,” he said.
Some 43 developers from Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Johor will showcase new projects at the four-day fair.
Last year, over 30 developers participated in Star Property Fair 2014.
Eco World Development Group Bhd will take up the biggest exhibition booth this year.
The other big exhibitors are BSG Property (the development arm of Boon Siew Group), Iconic Development, and Ivory Properties Group. - By The Star
