GEORGE TOWN: Hunza Properties Bhd’s first affordable housing project, TreeO, is expected to be completed by next year.

Hunza Properties founder Datuk Seri Khor Teng Tong (pic) said that the project’s construction on a 3.92-hectare plot in Sungai Ara has been ongoing since around 2018, but completion has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the various stages of the movement control order (MCO).

“Construction has been moving along all the while, except during the earlier stages of MCO 1.0 and Phase 1 of the full MCO.

“The progress has been slightly slowed down due to compliance with the strict regulations throughout the various phases of MCO,” he told Bernama.According to Khor,

TreeO features three multi-storey towers comprising 1,240 housing units; each one measuring 83.61 square metres and equipped with individual balconies, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

He also said that 50% of the housing project site would be dedicated to greenery space to ensure a refreshing living experience for its residents.

On another note, Khor hoped that the efforts to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic would be successful, which would then help to prevent further delays in the completion of the project, as well as other ongoing construction projects such as the Penang International Commercial City. — Bernama
