State govt mulls introducing theme park in Gurney Bay

Property News/ 2 December 2023 1 comment


The Penang state government is considering proposals to introduce additional commercial activities in Gurney Bay such as the Eye of Penang, Viewing Tower, floating ferry, Ferris wheel and theme parks, Penang chief minister Chow Kon Yeow revealed in the state legislative assembly on Thursday.

He said the additional commercial activities will be managed through the people, public, private partnership (PPPP) model.

“There is a proposal for all these projects to be implemented through an open tender or request for proposal process,” he said in his winding-up speech.

He said the total costs of the Gurney Bay project is RM221 million and the project costs were allocated annually starting from 2022.

A total of RM80 million was allocated to the project under the 2024 Budget.

Chow said the project will have a positive impact on the economy of the state.

“The Gurney Bay project is the state’s initiative to provide green recreational space in the Gurney area which is in line with the Penang2030 vision,” he said.

The Gurney Bay project comprises two water bodies; A which is 6.95 acres (302,742.00 sq m) and B which is 7.91 acres (44,559.00 sq m).

“Reclamation work for B is now in progress and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2024,” he said.

Reclamation works for water body A is scheduled to start in early 2024 and will take 18 months, he said.

He said there will be 800 car park lots in Gurney Bay with 238 motorcycle lots and 12 lots for buses.

“To reduce the carbon footprint, water taxi services will also be introduced in Gurney Bay,” he said.

He said both water bodies will be used as land banks as a way to generate revenue through the Gurney Bay project.

The land banks will be priced based on current market prices, the land value in the Gurney Drive area is estimated to be between RM900 per sq m for lands facing Gurney Drive near existing buildings and RM1,300 per sq m for land facing the coastal area, he said.

He said the land banks are mainly to cover the funds the state had invested in developing the project.

“The estimated revenue the state can generate from these two land banks is valued at RM800 million based on current market prices,” he said.

He said the land value will only be finalised after the reclamation work is completed and a detailed survey is conducted at the end of 2024.

On a suggestion to establish a new Special Vehicle Purpose (SPV) for Gurney Bay, Chow said the state will assess the need for this in the future.

Almost 3,000 unsold property units in Penang as at 3Q 2023

Property News/ 30 November 2023 No comments


There are 2,947 property units categorised as “overhang” or unsold in Penang as of the third quarter of this year (3Q 2023), said state Housing and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Seri S. Sundarajoo.

According to the National Property Information Centre, 503 of the unsold units are priced below RM300,000, or 17 per cent out of the 2,947 overhang units.

“Most of these unsold units are due to the applicant’s failure to obtain financing from financial institutions,” he said during the winding up session of the state’s 2024 Budget at the Penang state legislative assembly sitting here yesterday.

Sundarajoo added that the state government is always committed and serious about the housing agenda, as set out in the Penang Vision 2030 and the Penang Unity Government Manifesto 2023.

He said the state government will continue to ensure housing development in Penang will be provided in a balanced manner and developed holistically taking into account the needs of the local community.

“The state’s Rumah Mampu Milik (RMM) initiative is a subsidised housing programme borne by the state government or private developers who want to develop housing in Penang.

“Thus, to enable a development to be implemented holistically, there are also costly housing components that need to be taken into account to provide cross-subsidies to RMM housing projects,” he said.

Touching on the implementation of the state’s urban regeneration projects, Sundarajoo said the state government through the Housing Board is ensuring that the supply of RMM can continue, in line with providing ergonomic and comfortable housing to the people of the state.

He said the urban regeneration projects are a strategic step to increase land use and improve the quality of life.

“Five urban regeneration pilot projects will be implemented under the urban renewal guidelines, while other schemes can be applied to the state government through the Housing Board to study their feasibility,” he said.
