KUCHING (Nov 23): Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg officiated the earth-breaking ceremony for Lee Onn Development Sdn Bhd’s (Lee Onn) Sri Pertiwi affordable housing project at Jalan Batu Kawa here today.

A statement issued by the developer said the project paves way for the low and middle-income groups to acquire properties at an affordable price.

To complement the efforts of the Sarawak government in providing affordable houses to M40 and B40 groups, Lee Onn has incorporated into this project a total of 486 apartment units to cater for the needs of those qualified Malaysian citizens from Sarawak or permanent residents of Sarawak with a gross household income of RM4,000 to RM10,000.

Each unit, priced at RM295,000, features 960 sq ft of living space with three rooms and two bathrooms.

The nine-storey Sri Pertiwi, a gated and 24-hour guarded apartment comes complete with a community hall.

Potential homeowners looking for an affordable home in a convenient location might just find what they are looking for at this upcoming housing development project opposite MJC, Batu Kawa Township undertaken by Lee Onn.

Accessible from Jalan Batu Kawa and from Desa Wira Lorong 3 via a new bridge set to be built for ease of access, the new housing development project is situated within an exciting new township that comprises commercial, residential, lifestyle, education, petrol kiosk, wet market and other public amenities, spanning over 260 acres of prime property opposite MJC Batu Kawa Township.
