The case in point is our recent launch of Hijayu 3B project in end-May 2015, comprising 333 units of double-storey terrace homes, which saw approximately 40% take-up within a short span of one month. This indicates our success in catering to the demand for affordable homes in Negeri Sembilan and Greater Klang Valley.”
