POSITIVE MOVE:Two housing projects in Mutiara Skudai to be completed within two years
A TOTAL of 1,032 units of Johor Affordable Homes (RMMJ) and Johor Community Housing (PKJ), costing between RM80,000 and RM220,000, will be built in Mutiara Skudai here.
Johor Menteri Besar, Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, said the two housing projects will be developed by next year by Mutiara Rini Sdn Bhd, which is part of the Boustead Group's property division.
He said the project, expected to be completed within two years, has received positive feedback from the developer towards the new state government policy of offering affordable homes to low- and middle-income groups.
The Menteri Besar said this after the groundbreaking ceremony at Mutiara Rini here.
Present was Boustead Holdings Bhd deputy chairman and managing director, Tan Sri Iodin Wok Kamaruddin.
Ghani said the project will be advantageous to eligible armed forces personnel, as 50 per cent from RMMJ and 20 per cent from PKJ will be allocated to them.
"As property prices have been rising, the government's policy is to help the lower and middle-income groups to purchase homes," he said.
For the scheme, a total of 724 units of linked RMMJ homes, measuring 111 square metres, will be sold at RM220,000 per unit.
The PKJ homes, each measuring 79 square metres, will be sold at RM80,000 per unit.
