by Rosli Mansor Ahmad Razali
The Lahat Eco-City Housing Project (PPLEC), which is about to be developed, opens up the opportunity for the citizens of Ipoh, especially those from the low-income groups, to own their own homes.
Mysuccessland Sdn Bhd is a local developer responsible for developing PPLEC, located in Bandar Lahat, Ipoh.
PPLEC is an area of 82.53 acres, and it is proposed that a total of 1,465 units of low-cost and medium-cost properties will be developed. It is the largest private project in Ipoh in the last 15 years.
It involves a total of 392 units of low-cost flats, 404 units of medium-cost flats and 669 units of medium-cost single-storey terrace houses.
Duli Yang Amat Mulia Raja Di-Hilir Perak, Raja Iskandar Dzulkarnain ibni Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah, agreed to complete the groundbreaking ceremony for Lahat Eco-City housing this morning.
Among the guests of honour who were present were the Menteri Besar of Perak, Dato’ Seri Saarani Mohamad and the Mayor of Ipoh, Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin @ Md Daud.
Ipoh Mayor, Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin @ Md Daud had said on 5 September 2022, at the developer’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing ceremony with MBI, that it would give priority to low-ranking MBI members to buy low-cost properties.
“The preference for MBI members to buy medium-cost properties is as an appreciation for their services and their ability to improve the living standards of low-income people.
“The ideology of ‘One Family, One House’ aims to increase the rate of home ownership for each group.
“The medium-cost terrace houses in phase 1 are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024 while the low-cost flats in phase 2 will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2026,” he said.
