KUCHING: Zecon Bhd has entered an agreement with PR1MA Corporation Malaysia (PR1MA) to develop 54 acres for PR1MA homes and retail units in Salak Land District, Kuching.

PR1MA has purchased the Salak Land District land from Zecon at RM46 million.

He added “We are delighted to jointly develop the strategically located Salak Land District Area with PR1MA and to contribute to developing affordable housing for Malaysians. The Salak Land District area is near Kuching High Court and Wisma Bapa Malaysia, making it a sought-after location for Kuching residents.”

Under this joint development agreement, Zecon and PR1MA will share the costs and expenditures for the construction and completion of necessary and common infrastructures for this development.
