Construction of Tamansari Row Houses to be Completed Next Year
The construction of the Sunda Kiwari Overtime or Tamansari Row House is expected to be completed next year. Currently, the construction of the Tamansari Row House is still in the third stage of the process.
"Tower A and C construction is estimated to be completed in 2023, there are mosques can also be completed. Currently it is 90 percent," said Head of Housing Division of the Bandung City Housing and Settlement Area (DPKP) Bandung City, Nunun Yanuati to Bandung Public Relations in the Ngariung Podcast, Tuesday 8 October 2022.
Nunun revealed, in towers A and C there are around 191 units and will be used by residents affected by the construction of row houses as many as 187 families.
The target is that around 400 units of the Tamansari row house will be built.
"The progress of the construction of towers A and C has reached 90 percent, around 191 units. The rest of the blocks B and D have an additional 200 units. The total is estimated to have a total of 400 units for 400 families," he said.
The construction of row houses, said Nunun, is one of the government's efforts to provide comfortable, safe and healthy housing for the community. Row houses are also a solution for revitalizing slum settlements in the city of Bandung.
Of the 518 thousand houses in the city of Bandung, currently 18 thousand or 3.7 percent are uninhabitable houses.
"The city of Bandung is full of buildings. There is no more land to build on. Meanwhile, many families need houses, the mandate from the spatial plan must be above," he said.
"Especially considering the value of the land which is not possible, the solution is vertical buildings," he added.
To note, a decent occupancy standard according to the Regulation of the Minister of PUPR if it meets 3 requirements, namely building safety, building health and land adequacy.
"Structures and materials must be safe for humans inside, housing must meet the lighting and ventilation factors and the adequacy of the area, which is 9 square meters per person. In addition, there is also the availability of drinking water," he said.
"Later on, the affected residents will get one building unit for each family head. From the beginning, the affected residents will get one family unit," he said.
He said the row houses are also open to the general public and prioritized for low-income people.
"We'll see whether the criteria for entry or not, will be selected later. It is possible that the general public can occupy row houses. We prioritize low-income people," he said.(rob)**
