House buyers of Residensi Pauh Permai receive keys


IT was a delightful Saturday morning for house buyers of Residensi Pauh Permai in Seberang Perai as they officially received their keys from Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican.


The project, which comes under the 1Malaysia People’s Housing Programme (PR1MA), started its construction works on Dec 13, 2017 and was completed on Sept 14, 2021.


State Housing, Local Government, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo congratulated its developer, Excel Focus Properties Sdn Bhd for the completion of the project, which comprises 1,017 units of affordable homes (Type C3 – RM250,000).


Each unit is 900sq ft.


“I understand that during the initial stage of the application process, the project had received applications from more than 1,000 individuals.


“Besides its strategic location, the amazing facilities also played a huge part in drawing attention from the people.


“At the end of the day, this is what the Penang government aspires for. A roof over our heads is the most basic need in our lives.


“The Penang government will continue to prioritise the delivery of affordable homes for Penangites,” Jagdeep said during the ‘Prestasi Residensi Pauh Permai’ programme on the mainland today.


The Federal Government-based project has facilities such as a swimming pool, futsal field, multipurpose hall, surau, children’s playground and a sky garden (outdoor gym concept).


Meanwhile, Reezal applauded PR1MA for this initiative and expressed hopes that more of such affordable homes would be built in the future for the betterment of the people.
