All aglow to usher in Chinese New Year

GEORGE TOWN: The inner city was transformed into a fairyland of lights as 2,400 bright red lanterns were lit up for the first time this year.

The lanterns that adorn over half a dozen roads surrounding Armenian Street, were put up in conjunction with the upcoming annual Chinese New Year Cultural and Heritage Celebration.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng stood under an arch between two towering golden dragons to flip a switch and officiate the lighting ceremony.

Together with members of the cultural and heritage celebration's organising committee, Lim then took a short walk around the heritage enclave to get a closer look at the festive decorations.

Organising committee secretary Loh Boon Huan said the lanterns would be lit every night until Chap Goh Meh — the 15th and final day of Chinese New Year that falls on Feb 6.

On a related issue, Lim, who was accompanied by state executive councillors Chow Kon Yeow and Wong Hon Wai, said the re-tarring of Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling was postponed to after the Chinese New Year.

"The work was scheduled for January, but because of the inconvenience that it will cause, the state government has decided to postpone the job until after the Chinese New Year celebration," Lim said.

In August last year, the state announced that an 800m-stretch of cobblestone on Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling would be re-tarred after numerous complaints from the public about its rough surface.

The Chinese New Year Cultural and Heritage Celebration is jointly organised by the Penang Chinese Clan Council, Penang Clan Associations Youth Committee and Penang Government.

E&O Hotel and Star Cruises are co-sponsors of the event.

It will run from 3pm to midnight on Jan 29. All are welcome.

White Knights revive abandoned projects- launching of Taman Bukit Erskine

A DEVELOPER is building 554 low medium-cost apartment units along Lebuhraya Halia in Tanjung Tokong, Penang.

Currently 30% complete, the 38-storey Taman Bukit Erskine developed by Ivory Villas Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary company of Ivory Properties Group Berhad, is expected to be completed in 2014.

Ivory Properties Group Berhad executive director Ron Loh said each unit with a built-up area of 654sq ft comes with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a washroom.

"Despite being a low-medium cost project, the apartments offer good views," he said in a press conference at Penang Time Square on Friday.

He added that the project was abandoned for 11 years due to the 1997 economic crisis and was revived when Ivory took up the project as a white knight in 2007.

Originally named Fettes Villa, the project was later renamed Mount Erskine Development which consists of The Peak Residences, The Latitude and Taman Bukit Erskine.

Loh said the group had since changed the initial 500sq ft layout plan to 654sq ft and increased the units from 363 to 554.

He also said former purchasers who had paid the deposit in the previous project can opt to purchase the units or get a full refund next year.

"According to a court order, we can only refund the deposit a year after we launch this project.

"So far, 30% of the 363 former purchasers wanted to continue with this project," he said.

State Town and Country Planning, Housing and Arts Committee chairman Wong Hon Wai who launched the project said that he had contacted Rapid Penang to consider plying the route there.

"They used to ply the route but in 2007, they stopped due to poor response.

"I suggest that the bus company conduct a study on the need to service the route there since the apartments are coming up," he said.

He added that the public could send their feedback to Rapid Penang at

Wong also said that since 2008, seven abandoned projects including Taman Bukit Erskine had been revived and were at different stages of completion.

The projects are Desa Aman in Paya Terubong, Taman Cemerlang in Bandar Baru Air Itam, Mengkuang Heights and Taman Guar Perahu Indah in Central Seberang Prai, Taman Orkid Indah in North Seberang Prai and Taman Pekatra in South Seberang Prai.

On a related issue, Wong said the request for proposal (RFP) period for the revival of the Majestic Heights project in Paya Terubong ended on Jan 6.

He added that the Malaysia Building Society Berhad and the property liquidator Deloitte Kassim Chan had called for the RFP on Oct 7 last year.

"Phase 2A, 2B and 3A have been abandoned.

"They are going through the submissions by several developers.

"We hope that the phases can be completed soon after being abandoned for more than 10 years," he said.

'White knights' revive projects

MORE than 2,500 low- and low medium-cost units will be made available in Penang following the revival of seven abandoned housing projects.

Three of the projects are on the island -- they are Desa Aman, Fettes Villa (which has been renamed to Taman Bukit Erskine) and Taman Cemerlang.

The other four are Mengkuang Heights and Taman Guar Perahu Indah (in the Seberang Prai Tengah district), Taman Orkid Indah (in the Seberang Prai Utara district) and Taman Pekatra (in the Seberang Prai Selatan district).

State Housing Committee chairman Wong Hon Wai said the seven projects, which had been abandoned for between five and 15 years, were in various stages of revival.

"Thanks to 'white knights', these projects will be revived (once) again.

"With the completion of these affordable houses within the next few years, more and more people in the state will be able to own houses," he said at the launching ceremony of the Taman Bukit Erskine project at Penang Times Square here yesterday.

Present were Ivory Properties Group Bhd executive director Ron Loh, chief operating officer Datuk Ooi Chin Loo and deputy chief operating officer Goh Chin Heng.

The Taman Bukit Erskine is undertaken by Ivory Villas Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Ivory Properties.

It was abandoned for 11 years due to the 1997 economic crisis before Ivory Villas stepped forward as a 'white knight' to revive the project following a High Court arrangement.

A total of 554 low- and low medium-cost units are being offered in Lebuhraya Halia in Tanjung Tokong here with a built-up area of 60.75sq m each and priced at RM72,500.

Originally, only 363 units were offered with a built-up area of 46.45sq m.

Loh said the Taman Bukit Erskine project is now 30 per cent completed and is expected to fully completed in 2014.

Meanwhile, Wong said the state government was looking into efforts to revive other long-abandoned housing projects in the state.

"There is now a glimmer of hope for purchasers of these long-abandoned project," he said.
