The Pagar Buloh market, food complex and community centre in Lintang Sungai Ara 12 is expected to be opened to the public by August 2017.
The RM27mil complex is a joint venture by Koperasi Tunas Muda Sungai Ara and Ideal Property Group which the ownership of the building was handed over to the MBPP on June 6, 2017. Ideal Property Group Executive Chairman Datuk Alex Ooi handed over a mock key to mayor of Georgetown, Rt Hon Dato' Patahiyah Ismail at the handover event.
The double-story complex, which boasts of being a green building, houses 25 food stalls, 44 dry and wet market stalls, a children's playground and a multi-purpose hall which has 3 badminton courts.
Construction of the building began in mid-2015 and was completed in December last year.
