Selection of developer for Kg Kerinchi redevelopment moved to March 27

KUALA LUMPUR: The briefing on the redevelopment of the Kampung Kerinchi flats in Kuala Lumpur and the selection of the developer have been postponed from Friday March 12 to March 27, Federal Territories and Urban Well-Being Minister Raja Datuk Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said Wednesday March 10.

He said the agreement on the postponement was reached at a meeting in Putrajaya with the residents association which requested the postponement.

The briefings on March 27, he said, would be on the relocation of the flat owners and on the proposed development plans of all four developers bidding for the redevelopment project.

After the briefings, a secret ballot would be carried out and the counting of the votes would be conducted to determine the selected developer, he said.

"At the request of the residents association, the voting will be conducted on the same day of the briefing, the votes will be counted openly and the selected developer announced," he said in a statement.

The briefing and voting would be held at the DBKL community centre in Lembah Pantai from 10am, he said.

The ministry has been instructed to send the developers' offer and plans to all the 480 owners of the flats one week before the briefings. "This is to ensure that the flat owners had enough time to make an assessment and discuss the matter with family members and decide on the developer of their choice," he said.

"This is being undertaken for the first time and I am confident the majority of the people would be happy with their choice as the process is being carried out openly with transparency right before their very eyes," he
