MELAKA, Sept 22 — Construction of nine out of 22 housing projects under Perbadanan PR1MA Malaysia (PR1MA) nationwide that were categorised as sick or problematic projects have been completed as of July 31, said Deputy Local Government Development Minister Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir.
He said the nine projects, involving 6,406 units, were completed after the setup of the sick and abandoned private housing project task force early this year.
“We aim to complete the remaining PR1MA projects, involving 9,528 units, within two years or before the end of 2024,” he told a press conference after a working visit to the PR1MA Melaka Tengah 2 Project here today.
Regarding the three PR1MA projects in Melaka, Akmal Nasrullah said two of them, namely, the Melaka Tengah Residence Project 2 and the Klebang Residence Project 2, were now 90 per cent completed.
“Both projects are expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2024, while the Bukit Katil Residency Project is expected to be completed by the end of next year,” he said.
He said PR1MA will pay in stages the liquidated ascertained damages (LAD) estimated at RM6 million to 273 buyers of the Klebang Residence Project 2.
The initial payment of part of LAD to two buyers has been made, he said, adding that for the Bukit Katil Residency project, 10 buyers will receive LAD amounting to about RM70,000.
