SIME Darby Property is keeping to its pledge of developing affordable housing to fulfil demand from medium to low income households.
The developer last month unveiled Harmoni 1, located in Putra Heights, Subang, and it has attracted huge interest from first-time house buyers.
Harmoni 1 is the second launch under the Rumah Selangorku scheme by Sime Darby Property.
The first was Bandar Bukit Raja in Klang, launched in 2015.
Sime Darby Property managing director Datuk Jauhari Hamidi said the company’s commitment reflects its vision to be the No. 1 local sustainable property developer by offering a balanced development portfolio in all income groups.
“Under the Rumah Selangorku scheme, we are developing more than 4,000 housing units in the City of Elmina, Bandar Bukit Raja, USJ Heights, Bukit Jelutong and Serenia City Townships,” he said after the project launch.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Selangor State Housing, Building and Urban Settler Management Committee chairman Datuk Iskandar Abdul Samad were also present.
Harmoni 1 offers 1,700 units of apartments with prices ranging from RM170,000 to RM270,000.
The total gross development value of the project was RM359 million, said Jauhari.
Harmoni 1 comes with facilities that include a five-and-a-half storey carpark block for residents, a multi-purpose hall for community activities, two guard houses for enhanced security, and a generous expanse of green space for community wellness.
Jauhari said construction would start this month and take three years to complete.
Registration and purchase of Rumah Selangorku is open to all Malaysians, including non-Selangor natives aged 18 years old and above, with a household income between RM3,000 and RM10,000.
Applicants must not own any other type of property in the state.
Meanwhile, Iskandar said applications for the development of 89,007 units of affordable houses had been approved since the scheme’s introduction in 2015.
A total of 20,880 units would be completed by year-end, he said.
