1,000 apply for 234 apartments

THE PENANG Housing Department has received more than 1,000 applications for the 24-storey low medium-cost apartment Shineville Garden in Air Itam.

State Town and Country Planning, Housing and Arts Committee chairman Wong Hon Wai said the project being developed by Zantalite Enterprise (M) Sdn Bhd is scheduled for completion by year-end.

The 24-storey block will house 234 units and will be sold at RM72,000 for each of the 700sq ft, three-bedroom units.

“The state has imposed on the developer to widen a 350m-long stretch in Lebuhraya Thean Teik from the Lebuhraya Thean Teik-Lorong Batu Lanchang traffic light junction,” he told a press conference recently.

He said the developer was required to widen the 60ft-wide (18.3m) stretch by another 40ft (12.2m).

Wong said the road expansion project — from four lanes to six — would also include a free-flow left-turn for traffic from Lebuh-raya Thean Teik to Lorong Batu Lanchang (towards the Little Sisters of The Poor), which is expected to be completed once the road is widened.

He said the condition was imposed to ensure there is no traffic bottleneck at the Lebuhraya Thean Teik-Lorong Batu Lanchang traffic light junction with the additional population once the housing project is completed.

There are two other housing projects by Zantalite Enterprise — Shineville Park condominium and Shineville Villas terrace at the 4ha land.

Zantalite Enterprise executive director Ong Soo Yong said the company was trying to resolve the road alignment problem with the Penang Municipal Council and the land office before being able to start the road-widening project.

“We expect to widen the road by the first quarter of the year and the road widening project will take about three to four months to complete,” Ong added.
