Real Estate Review: PPR Taman Manggis, George Town, Penang

PPR Taman Manggis or Project Perumahan Rakyat Taman Manggis, is a low-cost public housing project along Jalan Zainal Abidin in George Town, Penang. It comprises an 18-storey apartment complex bordered by Jalan Zainal Abidin on one side, and Lorong Selamat on the other.

PPR Taman Manggis occupies land that was previously double-storey government quarters. These were demolished to make way for the housing project. The first phase of PPR Taman Manggis was completed in 2009. There was to be a second phase, on the remaining plot of land, however, the continuation of the project has since been bogged down by political tussle between parties representing the state and federal governments.


Facilites include 24-hour security, communal parking and general maintenance.
