GEORGE TOWN (Aug 8): UDA Holdings Bhd aims to build another 3,568 housing units (of the mixed development type) in the Tanjung Tokong area here to provide opportunities for those who want to own a home in the area.
Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said currently 4,455 units of houses had been built by UDA in the area in stages since 1980 through the Warisan Tanjung and Desiran Tanjung projects.
It includes housing of various types such as low-cost apartments, medium-cost apartments, resettlement units, affordable housing and office shops.
"A further 3,568 units of houses are being planned for construction in this area (Tanjung Tokong) and the latest is the Warisan Tanjung apartment.
"The units are also for the resettlement of the original community where 550 families are expected to get their house keys this October," he told reporters after inspecting the Warisan Tanjung Parcel 4A apartment project site here today.
The Warisan Tanjung Parcel 4A apartment project developed by UDA on 3.24 hectares (ha) of land consists of 10 blocks with 550 units with an area of 800 sq ft to 850 sq ft at a price of RM350,000 per unit.
