In a recent announcement made by Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan, an initiative has been introduced to help a certain group of individuals reduce their burden.
Now, now, who are these group of individuals are we talking about?
If you fall under this category – single, broke, struggling to find a place in KL, and living in the federal capital, then this one is for you! The initiative will allow individuals who are in the B40 category to rent rooms for as low as RM 100 per month under a micro-housing.
Slated to be implemented this year, an old DBKL building on Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman will be revamped into two blocks, one for men and another for women with about a total of 120 rooms each based on the concept of a capsule hotel. Also, the building can accommodate up to 200 occupants!
Incase you’ve no clue what a capsule hotel looks like, here is an example of how it might turn out to be :
The only drawback of this project is that building occupants are not allowed to cook within the establishment. Well, with a plethora of food stalls around KL, you’re highly unlikely to starve.
Side note: B40 refers to the bottom 40% of households with monthly income of RM 3,900 and below.
Drop us a comment down below if you know anyone that would want to move in to the capsule hotel!
