SEREMBAN: A total of 891 buyers of units at the PR1MA Residensi Seremban Sentral project will be able to move into their homes from June 1, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
The Prime Minister said the government has managed to resolve a long-standing dispute faced by PR1MA Corporation with regards to reserve railway land near the project site.
"PR1MA Corporation had had a dispute with regards to the railway reserve land since 2015 and due to this, the unit owners had not been able to move in (after the units were completed).
"We have since resolved this and the units will be handed over to the buyers from June 1," he said.
The Residensi Seremban Sentral affordable housing project has 1,504 apartments, which cost between RM268,000 and RM399,000. As of February, 908 have been sold.
Work on the project started in October 2015 and PR1MA started selling the units in April 2018.
However, the developer could not complete the project in September 2018 and this was then deferred to May 2020.
The project continued to experience delays and in February, PR1MA Corporation said the project should be completed in the second quarter of 2023.
It said the delay was due to the movement control order enforced following the Covid-19 pandemic.
It said the delays were also due to the contractor being unable to hire workers.
