Old KL Flats To Be Redeveloped, Have Condo-like Facilities

All flats over 40 years old in Kuala Lumpur, including those constructed by private developers, are set to be redeveloped under the Urban Renewal programme of the Ministry of Federal Territories.

Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said old flats that were small in size and no longer suitable for occupancies will be rebuilt to feature various facilities and equipment, reported Bernama.

In fact, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has already prepared the guidelines for areas with “old, rundown, small and overcrowded housing to be redeveloped under the Urban Renewal programme”.

“The guidelines are ready and have been approved to encourage and assist the private sector to work together with DBKL in this effort,” he said as quoted by Bernama.

“The identified areas will be demolished and rebuilt, subject to agreement of the original owners.”

Annuar explained that the Urban Renewal programme will go hand in hand with the development of DBKL-owned flats.

“All these, including the Seri Perlis flats in Keramat, Seri Labuan (Cheras) and Seri Negri Sembilan (Sentul), will be rebuilt so that the owners can get a new house with the size of 750 to 800 sq ft, three rooms and complete with facilities similar to those at regular condominiums,” he said.

“We hope this will provide relief to the owners of old apartments,” he added.
