Fresh Look for Penang Housing Block

March 29, 2017


Penang is on the rise as a residential hub in Malaysia. It has an eclectic mixed of old and new developments , providing more option for house hunters.

Residents of apartment block 38 at the Pangsapuri Century housing project in Batu Uban, Penang can look forward to their homes’ new coat of paint next month, reported The Star.

The paintjob commenced on 1 March and is expected to be completed by 30 April at the nine-storey block containing 13 commercial units and 143 apartments.

More importantly, the unit owners only forked out RM30,000 for the makeover, while the state government generously shouldered the remaining RM123,600.

According to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, the paintjob is being undertaken by Intrusa Global Enterprise after it won the open tender. “Once this is done, I believe the housing price here will appreciate,” he said during the start of the painting work.

The event was also attended by Deputy Chief Minister I Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon, apartment management corporation Chairman K. Shanker and Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin.

Sim said he is confident that apartment block 38 would become one of the best looking high-rise buildings in Penang following the completion of the repainting work.

“The residents here had always wanted a new coat of paint for the exterior which looked a bit run-down from afar,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Shanker expressed his gratitude to the state authorities and elected officials for subsidising the repainting work.

Among Penang’s latest residential projects are:

1. Tropicana Bay Residences

2. The Light Collection VI
