BELOW MARKET PRICE: 5,000 houses under RM250,000 to be launched in two years
GEORGE TOWN: A QUARTER of the 20,000 low-cost and affordable homes to be built under the 1Malaysia People's Housing Scheme (PR1MA) in Penang will be on 182ha of land owned by federal agency JKP Sdn Bhd.

Its chairman, Datuk Zainal Abidin Osman, said the land, which is in several parcels measuring from 10ha to 32ha, is in the southern Seberang Prai district, Juru, Permatang Pauh, Tasek Gelugor, Kepala Batas and Balik Pulau.

The 5,000 houses would include flats, terrace homes and semi-detached houses with prices ranging from RM40,000 to RM250,000.

Zainal Abidin said the agency hoped to launch the 5,000 units within two years and they would be ready in three to five years.

On Saturday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced that Penang would be getting 20,000 units of low-cost and affordable houses under the PR1MA programme to address worsening concerns that homes here were becoming too expensive for locals to own.

It was also reported that the affordable housing projects would be built on federal-owned land and those belonging to the Penang Regional Development Authority, JKP and Syarikat Perumahan Nasional Bhd (SPNB), with the first development of some 2,000 units to be constructed in Kampung Kastam, Bukit Gelugor.

While PR1MA will undertake the building of 10,000 units, the rest would be handled by Perda JKP and SPNB.

The PR1MA programme homes will be sold below market price at around RM300,000.

Zainal Abidin said with the many projects in the pipeline for the benefit of the people, the DAP-led state government should not impose any extra conditions on the agencies that would be building the houses.

He noted that in Penang, JKP and three other Federal Government-linked development firms -- Perda, UDA Holdings Berhad and Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) -- have to go through the State Planning Committee chaired by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng with their project plans first before going to the local councils for application approvals.

It was reported that the new ruling, which was introduced a few months ago, did not apply to other private developers that only needed to go through the Penang Island and Seberang Prai municipal councils.

Penang Housing Committee chairman Wong Hon Wai said the state government would not hold back the necessary approvals for affordable housing projects.

PISA
Penang International Sports Arena redevelopment to

sPICE
Subterranean Penang International Conference & Exhibition Centre


SPICE, or the Subterranean Penang International Conference & Exhibition Centre, is an exhibition centre presently under construction at PISA, Bayan Baru, Penang. It is also often written as sPICE. The project said to cost between RM250 million to RM300 million is being developed by SP Setia Group for the Penang State Government.



SPICE will involve the construction of a semi-subterranean facility for conferences and exhibition. It will enlarge the area available at the Penang International Sports Arena. The project was originally called the Peanng International Convention Centre (PICC) but was renamed in an announcement made by Penang Chief Minister as mentioned in a report in the Star on 16 January, 2011.

SPICE will include the Penang People's Park, which provides environmentally friendly recreational facilities. I suppose the existing swimming pool at PISA will be upgraded and improved as part of the project. In addition, there will be a ball room and other function rooms. There will also be a multi-storey car park enabling the entire site to have a total of 2,200 parking lots.
source - http://www.penang-traveltips.com/spice.htm




First phase of sPICE centre plan running smoothly and should be finished next year (2013)

THE upgrading work for the subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition (sPICE) Centre project has started and is 10% ahead of schedule.
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...2339&sec=north

SP Setia Bhd (North) divisional general manager Khoo Teik Chong said the project would be carried out in three phases and be ready by 2015.

The first phase involves refurbishment and rectification of the Penang International Sports Arena indoor stadium.

He said the second phase involved renovating the Aquatic Centre, while the third phase would be the building of a convention centre, a four- star hotel and a seven-story car park with 2,000 parking lots.

“We started the first phase works in April this year which included repainting the indoor stadium and replacing the lighting and air-conditioning system.

“It will be completed early next year,” said Khoo when contacted yesterday.

Raffles’ home to be restored in £60m masterplan

International engineering consultancy Web Structures has been appointed to help create a £60 million development in Malaysia that includes restoring the site of Sir Stamford Raffles’ historic home to all its former glory.

The Runnymede masterplan in Georgetown, Penang will see the creation of a stylish mixed development of offices, retail, houses and luxury apartments as well as a top hotel.

The 1,000,000 sq ft, four-year project, for developers, Warisan Pinang Sdn Bhd, a member of the Prima Prai Group, has been designed by highly-acclaimed Kuala Lumpur-based GDP Architects.

It includes the careful restoration of the Runnymede property which was originally the home of Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore.


The home of Sir Stamford Raffles


The original single-story colonial house, built in 1807, was named Runnymede after the field on which King John signed the Magna Carta.

That property was destroyed by fire in the 1920s and a glamorous and internationally-famous hotel, with its impressive ballroom and cocktail parties, was built on that site in the 1930s.

The British Navy took over the hotel in 1940 and it was used as a base by the Japanese during their occupation. Post-war it was in British military hands until 1957 when it became the property of the newly-independent Malaya.

Web Structures will be involved in preserving that historic building during the development work and in the restoration of Runnymede. The building is earmarked to reclaim its historic importance, forming the heart of this high profile development.

The civil, structural and geotechnical engineering consultancy, which has offices in London as well as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai, will bring all its expertise working on challenging projects across the globe to the Runnymede development.

Dr Hossein Rezai, group director of Web Structures, said: “This is a major, landmark development in Penang with a great mix of properties, from luxury apartments to offices and shops in a fantastic setting.

“The conservation of the old hotel building will require some delicate work. We have to ensure that the new development work does nothing to harm that building as it takes place around it and also involves work underneath it.

“The conservation and underpinning will see what is an historic and iconic building in the region preserved and restored to something of its former glory, which is an exciting and valuable part of the project.”

Founded in 1996, Web Structures has worked on more than 400 projects in over 24 countries. It has also been involved in the development of more than 52 residential and mixed-use skyscrapers around the world.

Other major architectural practices it has worked with include UN Studio, Kohn Pederson Fox and Maki and Associates. Its team is currently working on a new studio complex for UK-based Pinewood in Malaysia.

It has also won the contract to help create a £15.7 million new research and development facility for Munich-headquartered global electronics giant Rohde & Schwarz. The architects are Forum Projects.

Web Structures has an enviable reputation for its work on some of the biggest and most challenging construction projects in all parts of the world.

It has engineered more than 52 residential and mixed-use skyscrapers around the world in the past 15 years, including the iconic 50-storey Troika development in Kuala Lumpur the 40-storey Queen’s Condominium in Singapore and 61-storey Northpoint in Thailand.

It is also heavily involved in creating some of the tallest towers in cities across India.
