The proposed workers’ quarters project in Juru that was awarded by the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) to Westlite Dormitory (Penang-Juru) Sdn Bhd has been aborted.

Replying to a question by a journalist, Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said that the project was called off after the company met with strong objections from the residents living nearby.

Chow was referring to the proposed five-block quarters project back in 2016.

He added that Seberang Perai has only one workers’ dormitory now.

“Currently, there is only one workers’ dormitory on the mainland that has been completed and progressively occupied,” he said.

It was reported that the workers’ dormitory on the mainland in Bukit Minyak, was managed by Westlite Dormitory (Bukit Minyak) Sdn Bhd.

The dormitory consists of 369 units.

Picture shows approximate location

UDA Holdings Bhd aims to build another 3,568 housing units (of the mixed development type) in the Tanjung Tokong area here to provide opportunities for those who want to own a home in the area.

Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said currently 4,455 units of houses had been built by UDA in the area in stages since 1980 through the Warisan Tanjung and Desiran Tanjung projects.

It includes housing of various types such as low-cost apartments, medium-cost apartments, resettlement units, affordable housing and office shops.

“A further 3,568 units of houses are being planned for construction in this area (Tanjung Tokong) and the latest is the Warisan Tanjung apartment.

“The units are also for the resettlement of the original community where 550 families are expected to get their house keys this October,” he told reporters after inspecting the Warisan Tanjung Parcel 4A apartment project site here yesterday.

The Warisan Tanjung Parcel 4A apartment project developed by UDA on 3.24 hectares (ha) of land consists of 10 blocks with 550 units with an area of 800 sq ft to 850 sq ft at a price of RM350,000 per unit.

Wan Junaidi said the original residents of Tanjung Tokong who had lived in the transit house near the apartment for seven years would be transferred to the new apartment in stages.

Apart from the Warisan Tanjung apartment which now has 1,496 units including various types of houses, UDA has also built 2,969 units of houses in Desiran Tanjung since 2010 comprising medium-cost houses, three-storey superlink terrace units, medium-cost apartments and affordable housing units.

The Ship Campus expected to open in 2021

August 8th, 2020 No comments

the-ship-campus-completed

The Ship Campus, which is the first ever campus in Penang to be located inside an industrial park, is expected to be fully operational by early next year.

Once operational, it will be home to Peninsula College, the education arm of PKT Logistics Group Sdn Bhd, and can accommodate up to 4,000 students and 1,000 employees.

The group’s chief executive and managing director Datuk Michael Tio said the campus is now waiting for the Certificate of Compliance and Completion (CCC) before being allowed to open.

“Basically, the construction works of the campus, which began in 2017, had already been completed.

“The only thing left now is some final touches to the interior design which is expected to be fully completed within a few more weeks. After that, everything will be completed.

“Earlier, we expected to get the CCC in March and start to operate in May this year but the matter has been postponed due to the implementation of the movement control order (MCO) to curb the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.

“So now, we just have to wait for the CCC. Once we get it, we will submit the CCC to the Education Ministry for approval to run the campus,” he told reporters during an exclusive press tour at the campus yesterday (Aug 6).

The Ship Campus is a project by PKT Logistics Group under the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme with the aim of bridging the gap between academia and industry.

The RM160 million state-of-the-art campus also features an open deck, terraces and a retail walking street called ‘The Grand Promenade’ like those found on modern cruise ships.

It is also equipped with student residences that consist of four blocks.

Other accommodations such as a library, administration offices, gym, auditorium, and co-working spaces are also available at the campus.

According to Tio, the campus offers certificate and diploma programmes and partners with University of Plymouth in United Kingdom to offer university programmes such as bachelor’s degree.

“Our courses range from logistics management, business management, accountancy, tourism, computer studies to engineering.

“We provide the courses that are the most required by the industry in order to increase the employment rate once the students graduated.

“Once operational, the campus will also serve the start-up and SME community of Batu Kawan and thus will open up job opportunities for locals.

“At the same time, we are giving scholarships as well but only to Penangites for now.

Seberang Perai is the future of Penang

August 7th, 2020 3 comments

batu-kawan

With a more organized and complete road network, Seberang Perai has the potential to be a growth area and is the future for the state of Penang, said the Chief Minister, Y.A.B. Mr. Chow Kon Yeow.

He said that the administration he led since 2018 focused on balanced development between the island area and also Seberang Perai.

“Two years ago, I said that the future of Penang is actually located in Seberang Perai, if in the past the island was the focus by the previous government, but now we (State Government) focus on balanced development between the island and Seberang Perai.

“Seberang Perai is actually more strategic and has the potential to be developed, it is connected to two main bridges and ferry services.

“In fact, the road network and highways are more comprehensive and interconnected such as the North-South Expressway, Butterworth-Kulim Expressway, Federal and state roads,” he said at a live talk session ‘Penang In 10 Years Time’ hosted by Segambut MP , Hannah Yeoh via Facebook Live on Tuesday.

Commenting further, Kon Yeow who is also the Exco for Land Affairs & Land Development, Transport and Communications explained that the metropolitan city of Batu Kawan which is the catalyst for economic growth in the state in Seberang Perai is now actively developed.

“Batu Kawan is one of the catalyst areas for rapid growth in Seberang Perai, and indeed most of the industries are concentrated in this area, we (Penang State Government) are also ready to develop other districts as the next industrial area.

“The State Government is always working hard to ensure that Seberang Perai becomes a catalyst for growth for the future, so I always remind the local authority which is the Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) to have more resources to develop the city of Seberang Perai,” he explained.

The one-hour talk also touched on the direction of the State Government until 2030 through the Penang2030 Vision, high-impact projects as well as the State Government’s approach to addressing the issue of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the main issues that are also a topic of discussion is the cancellation of the Federal Government’s allocation of RM100 million to develop the Bukit Bendera cable car system recently.

When asked about the issue, Kon Yeow in his response said that basically the State Government has made preparations to appoint a consultant to conduct a study.

“But given the cancellation, we (State Government) need to reconsider whether to continue the implementation or not, or at least continue the study on the alignment and feasibility of the project,” he said.

It is understood that the withdrawal of the allocation is due to the current situation of the country’s economy and the project is categorized as not an important project.

According to Kon Yeow, immediately after the announcement, Perbadanan Bukit Bendera also received a question on whether the State Government is interested in implementing the project through private financial initiatives.

“We are open about this idea, maybe after all the necessary studies have been implemented… maybe the State Government will implement it through Private Initiative Financing (PFI),” he commented.
