Four more ministries to move to Putrajaya

PUTRAJAYA: Four more ministries will move into the government office complexes in Precinct One here by December with the completion of Parcel E.  

Parcel E, said to be the largest ongoing government building project in Precinct One, is now physically complete.  

A tree-planting ceremony was launched by the president of Putrajaya Corporation Tan Sri Azizan Zainul Abidin yesterday .  

Parcel E will house four ministries – Education; Health; Energy, Communications and Multimedia; and National Unity and Social Development – with some 6,000 civil servants. 

The largest tenant, the Education Ministry, will occupy seven blocks. 

Azizan, in his speech, congratulated those involved in the project for “delivering the parcel” within the scheduled two years.  

“I am also glad that they have done what they had promised – placing enormous emphasis on landscaping and establishing a city in a garden. We want Putrajaya to stand out as a city with great greenery,” he said after planting an African cedar named Khaya Grandifolia, said to be the 1,001th tree at Parcel E.  

The RM1bil project spanning over 16.3ha now stands as majestically as the other parcels, which house the Prime Minister’s Office, Prime Minister’s Department, Wisma Putra and Finance Ministry.  

Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd general manager and project co-ordinator Elina Abdul Aziz said all buildings in Parcel E were centred around a main axis point that links with the monorail station, the Promenade and the Putrajaya Wetlands on its south.  

Besides boasting beautiful landscaped gardens, the architecture of Parcel E highlights elements of the Malay heritage. 

One example is its pedestrian walkways that are reminiscent of verandahs in Malay traditional houses.
