The Penang state government has handed over the keys for a RM80m low- and medium-cost housing project developed by PDC in Sungai Dua.

The two 22-storey blocks at Halaman Kenanga have 720 homes:

  • 510 low-medium homes (700 sq ft) at RM72000 (PDC reportedly subsidised RM38,000 per home);
  • 204 low cost homes (680sg ft) at RM42000 (PDC reportedly subsidised RM66000 per home); and
  • six shophouses.

Construction began in 2009, the OC was in November 2011 and the keys were handed over on 4 March 2012.

Guan Eng said his administration has approved 11596 low-cost and low medium-cost units since 2008.

The Auditor-General’s Report 2010 had reportedly pointed out that the state had not built a single low-cost home  between 2008 and 2010.
