United Malayan Land (UMLand) Bhd will be building 1,122 affordable homes at UMLand Seri Alam under the Johor Affordable Housing Scheme. The groundbreaking ceremony by Johor Menteri Besar, Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin marks the beginning of construction for Perumahan Komuniti Johor (PKJ) and Rumah Mampu Milik Johor (RMMJ).
Scheduled to be completed in 36 months from commencement of construction, the new development spans across 18.46 acres of land and is strategically located within UMLand Seri Alam, which is also known as the ‘City of Knowledge’. UMLand will build 421 units of Perumahan Komuniti Johor (PKJ-B) and 701 units of Rumah Mampu Milik Johor (RMMJ), which are 14-storeys and 16-storeys high respectively. These medium-cost flat units will be priced at RM 80,000 (PKJ-B) and RM 150,000 (RMMJ) with built-ups of 850 sq. ft. (PKJ-B) and 1000 sq. ft. (RMMJ).
Datuk Syed Ahmad Khalid Syed Mohammed, Director of UMLand Bhd says, “We are delighted to participate in this meaningful collaboration with the state government where we aim to cater to local demands for affordable living and quality lifestyle. This is in view of the ever increasing housing prices that are one of the main concerns among Malaysians. It is an honour for UMLand to be part of an initiative where developers are able to provide homes which are not only reasonable in terms of pricing, but also built with quality as well.”
In addition, UMLand hopes to achieve a vibrant communal space within the heart of a lush, green environment by transplanting tree seedlings and shrubs throughout the residential area. UMLand Seri Alam is already home to 80,000 residents with multiple educational institutions which range from international schools to higher education facilities. Upcoming construction projects such as Foon Yew Secondary School, Lee Chong Wei International Sports City and also the Third General Hospital, will further add to the township’s wide variety of easily accessible amenities.
