Ukay Bistari project to be ready soon

The Ukay Bistari mixed development project delayed for five years is expected to be completed by July 2011, state housing, building management and squatter affairs committee chairman Iskandar Abdul Samad said.

He said three blocks of Ukay Bistari service apartment and management office, namely A, D and E were expected to be completed by next month. Only the external electrical, firefighting, architectural and piping works remain to be done.

“The handing over of the units in three blocks to the buyers should be carried out by early next year,” said Iskandar, adding that Block B and C were expected to be completed by February 2011 while Block F was scheduled to be ready by July next year.

Iskandar, who visited the project site yesterday, said the 256 low-cost flats units would be completed by January 2011.

As for the 60 medium low-cost units and 120 medium-cost units, Iskandar said the sale and purchase agreements for these units would be terminated and the buyers would get a refund.

“Buyers will get their refunds plus compensation which comes up to RM5mil,” he said.

He said they would be discussing with the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) to provide the certificate of fitness (CF) for the completed blocks.

He said the safety of the buyers will not be compromised.

“We will check on the access and hazards,” he said.

In response to a question on Ukay Bistari Land Owners’ (PHUKB) intention to vote en bloc for the coalition which successfully resolved their stalled housing woes, Iskandar said the state government’s priority was to complete the project.

“We will do our part to ensure the work is completed as it is our responsibility. We are not doing this to secure votes,” he said.

According to Block A contractor Abdul Rahman Abdul Manaf, only 20% of works are left to be done.

He said if all payments were on schedule, buyers should be able to move in by January next year.

“Internally everything is done and we are just left with some external electrical and piping works,” he said.

Meanwhile, PHUKB committee chairman Dr Mohamed Rafick Khan Abdul Rahman said he was not keen on the idea of sectional CF for the completed block.

“There is no water supply currently and a water tank would be placed to provide water temporarily.

He added that on an official level, the committee would have to discuss further with the local authorities and state conditions with regards to the CF.

Ukay Bistari in Ampang consists of 2,214 mixed-development units with double and two-and-a-half storey houses, low-cost apartments, service apartments as well as shops and office lots.

It was reported that the project was launched in August 2003 with scheduled completion between August 2005 and June 2007.

A total of 353 units of the double-storey houses were completed in October 2006 while another 103 units were completed in May 2008.
