Sarawak Housing to develop mixed project in Muara Tebas

SARAWAK Housing Development Corp (SHDC) plans to develop a 143.2ha state land at Muara Tebas, about 40km from Kuching, into a mixed project.

To be named "Bandar Baru Muara Tebas", the proposed development will feature residential units and a shopping area with 64 units of three-storey shophouses, restaurants and food courts.

It will also have community facilities such as a community centre, a primary school, a kindergarten and a mosque.

Housing and Urban Development Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Abang Openg, who visited the site yesterday, said the residential portion will comprise 1,035 units of affordable houses, 449 units of two-storey terrace, 286 semi-detached houses and 64 two-storey bungalows.
"The attraction (of the property) is the lake, the size of four football fields, and a central park, both of which will serve as the focus of the scheme, aimed at enhancing the aesthetic value and environmental quality of the project," he said.

Abang Johari said the lake will have facilities for small craft like yacht and tourist boats to anchor.

Bandar Baru Muara Tebas will serve as an extension of Kuching city, with the characteristics of a resort town.

He added that Muara Tebas, which is presently a small village, is set to become an important residential suburb of Kuching over the next decade.

"The development project is expected to be completed under the 10th and 11th Malaysia Plans," he said.

He said his ministry will seek federal funding for the project, but declined to reveal the cost.

Earthwork on the site, costing RM2.6 million, is expected to be completed by February next year.

"Once the earthwork is completed, we will start constructing 192 units of affordable houses under Phase One of the project," he said.
