FAMILIES residing in Kampung Ladang Kalidonia in Nibong Tebal will soon move into new houses built by EcoWorld.

The developer, under its Eco Horizon Sdn Bhd, has stepped in to build 272 units of Type-A low-cost single-storey cluster homes on the land and 80 households there will each get a unit.

EcoWorld deputy chief executive officer Datuk S. Rajoo said the development on the 6.1ha land is expected to cost RM50.9mil and will be done in two phases.

“The first phase will involve constructing 112 units while the remaining 160 units will be constructed in the second phase.

“Work will start in March next year and the whole project will be completed by 2025.

“Each 650sq ft house will feature high ceilings and can be renovated to accommodate about 200sq ft more of space above.

“The neighbourhood will feature common car parking spaces and community areas such as a lake, park and tracks for jogging and cycling activities,” he said during a press conference in Komtar recently.

Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy, who was present, assured residents in the area that they would not be affected during the construction process.

He said the 80 households will be relocated into the new homes on a 60-year lease.

Ramasamy also witnessed the project’s agreement signing between Rajoo and Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow during the press conference as the land belonged to the state.

Chow said the remaining units will be opened for other eligible applicants registered with the state Housing Department.
