Ipohites in the B40 and M40 categories now stand a chance of owning a house via the ‘Rumah Perakku’ project which will be developed at Tanah Hitam, Chemor.
According to CEO of Mimbar Nusantara, Nazrin Cheong Abdullah, the ‘Rumah Perakku’ project in Chemor is in its final stage of approval by Ipoh City Council (MBI).
“We plan to build 534 houses of which 133 units will be reserved for ‘Rumah Perakku’ project. Units under the project would not cost more than RM90,000 each. However, for places such as Malim Nawar, it will be sold at RM70,000 per unit. Since the Chemor project is under MBI, the houses will be sold at RM90,000 per unit.”
“Perakeans who wish to apply for a unit under ‘Rumah Perakku’ may do so online via our official website ‘Lembaga Perumahan dan Hartanah Perak’ (property board),” he told Ipoh Echo during a charity event on Thursday, November 28 at his office in Bandar Sri Klebang.
Mimbar Nusantara Holding Sdn Bhd is a property development and management company that has been around since 2015. The company has been working closely with the Menteri Besar’s office for the ‘Rumah Perakku’ project.
Nazrin Cheong stated that approximately 54 units of the ‘Rumah Perakku’ in Malim Nawar have been sold out. The launch was on December 12 and was officiated by the Menteri Besar.
Nazrin handed a cheque for RM1000 to two tahfiz schools, namely Maahad Tahfiz Al-Ansari, Ulu Chepor and Nur Muhammad Tahfiz Centre. Two other schools will receive similar donations. They are SJKT Ladang, Chemor and SJKC Pei Cheng, Chemor.
“We’ve extended financial assistance to Kamiley Ngah, the former handball player who has been diagnosed with a chronic disease. I hope that the aid will come in handy,” said Nazrin.
