State Affordable Homes in Penang – PDC 2013

Launch of Penang Affordable Homes Scheme Registration Exercise

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng announced that the Launch of the Penang affordable homes scheme registration exercise will commence on Feb 7, 2013.

Penangites can register at three locations, i.e. PDC Office in Bayan Baru, MPSP in Bandar Perda and at Level 3, Komtar.

The registration counters will be opened even during the Chinese New Year holidays.

With the announcement above from CM Lim Guan Eng’s Facebook page, i thought of trying to apply. Jalan SP Chelliah did sound interesting but i didn’t have any information other than it being on Penang Island.
Knowing Komtar would be flocked by the hundreds, i went to PDC (Penang Development Corporation) Bayan Baru. I was there at 8.30am to ensure i could be on time for work.

Upon reaching there were about 5 people before me and we were all given numbers. No less than 15 minutes, more people came in and sat.

I was early





Sharp at 9am, the first 5 people were called in and they were shown the plans and the township of Batu Kawan.

We were then given forms to fill in our interest. Take note, this form is not the form that guarantees you the property. Once you have been short listed, then you will be informed.

Batu Kawan PDC project is expected to finish later next year or early 2015. The whole project looks promising and it reminded me on how Bayan Baru used to be.

Probably this place would take off in 10-15 years time, even though its near the 2nd Penang Bridge.

Personally i think the 2nd Penang Bridge would not have an immediate impact as most traffic that uses the current Penang Bridge are from the north side of Butterworth.

Pricing for Batu Kawan Affordable Home


Been explained on the property

I was more interested in the Jalan SP Chelliah PDC project and the pricing was quite interesting.

800 sqft for RM200,000 – RM250 per sqft

900 sqft for RM300,000 – RM333 per sqft

1000 sqft for RM400,000 – RM400 per sqft.

There’s no ETA on this particular project yet as PDC will still need to submit the plans to the council for approval.
