UEM Sunrise Bhd is fulfilling its promise to build another 10,000 affordable homes in Johor, with the groundbreaking of Denai Nusantara in Nusajaya, reported the media.

The master developer of Nusajaya, UEM Sunrise pre-launched 321 affordable terraced homes and 30 shoplots in Nusa Bayu, Nusajaya in March.

The company has so far delivered 3,535 affordable homes in Taman Nusantara, which is adjacent to Nusa Bayu.

A project under the Johor affordable housing scheme, Denai Nusantara features five 12-storey blocks of three-bedroom apartments. With a built-up area of 1,000 sq ft, the 1,109 apartments are priced at RM150,000 each. Apart from these, Denai Nusantara also have 108 one-storey shoplots which cost RM200,000 each.

With a gross development value of RM188 million, Denai Nusantara is located next to the proposed transport hub as well as the industrial park in Gerbang Nusajaya.

According to Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib, managing director and chief executive of UEM Sunrise, the company fully supports the government’s efforts in ensuring home ownership for all rakyat.

He noted that while the company focused on developing Denai Nusantara, the State Secretary Office will determine who are qualified to purchase.

Notably, the high-rise development’s features include emphasis on crime prevention via environmental design, quality workmanship, affordable maintenance and recreation amenities.

Meanwhile, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said the development by UEM Sunrise will allow more Malaysians to benefit from Iskandar Malaysia’s progress.
