Since its successful launch of Idaman Bandar Saujana Putra (BSP) in October 2021, the project proved to be a hit with a strong take-up rate for almost all units that were released from one phase to the other.
Idaman Melur is located in Cybersouth, Sepang and consists of two blocks of 23-storey apartments spread across 12.07 acres with an estimated Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM406 million. The high-rise apartment project is made up of 3 variations in layout and priced at RM250,000. Idaman Melur comprises 1,448 units which are equipped with air conditioners, refrigerators, wardrobes, kitchen cabinets, television, television cabinet and water heaters.
The six Rumah Idaman MBI projects, comprising 7,210 units of affordable homes in all, tap on MGB’s in-house Industrialised Building System (“IBS”) pre-cast technology. The projects will be built by PCSB-MGB Consortium, which is a joint venture between MGB and PNSB Construction Sdn. Bhd, a subsidiary of PNSB. All Rumah Idaman MBI projects consist of high-rise residential homes priced at RM250,000 with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a minimum built-up area of 1,000 square feet per unit. MGB expects to launch the four remaining Rumah Idaman MBI projects by 2023. Registration for Idaman Melur can be done via https://ehartanah.lphs.gov.my/ and https://mgbgroup.com.my/idaman–melur/.
MGB Executive Vice Chairman, YBhg Tan Sri Lim Hock San commented, “We are pleased to be a part of and to share the government’s passion in ensuring housing is made affordable and attainable by every Malaysian. With our extensive years of experience in construction, we are confident in delivering quality Rumah Idaman MBI homes that will raise the benchmark for affordable housing in Selangor.
We are pleased that our internal IBS precast system is being incorporated into the Rumah Idaman MBI developments. This is aligned with our goal of becoming the leading housing solution provider through our IBS system. In the short-term, MGB’s goal is to ensure that the launch of the remaining Rumah Idaman MBI projects are on track which will subsequently pave the way for a continuous replenishment of the order book in the upcoming years.”
The CEO of PNSB, YM Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Bin Raja Salim in his remarks said, “PNSB will continue to develop Rumah Idaman in strategic and potential areas of Selangor which includes the districts of Petaling, Gombak, Kuala Langat, Klang, Kuala Selangor and Sabak Bernam. Amongst the 24 projects that will be implemented by PNSB, a total of 45,760 units of Rumah Idaman will be developed together through the collaboration of strategic partnership. Through previous implemented projects; a total of 2,059 units of Idaman Abadi in Kajang 2 have been completed while 1,260 units of Idaman Bukit Jelutong are in progress. Due to the high demand, these two projects have been sold out.”
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister of Selangor, YAB Dato’ Seri Amirudin bin Shari in his officiating address said, “The Selangor State Government is always concerned about the well-being of the people in Selangor, especially in providing the quality and comfortable housing alongside other essential facilities. The aim is to uplift the quality of their life.
The strategic location of Rumah Idaman Melur, with its reasonable pricing and semi-furnished of each unit has become a major attraction for property buyers.
We are confident that Rumah Idaman Melur and other Rumah Idaman MBI developments, a jointly developed project between PNSB and MGB Berhad will match the housing needs of working-class individuals and young families as well as to elevate the quality of life for Selangor residents”.
