President Mohamed Nasheed has officially launched housing project in Naifaru to build 25 row houses. The President laid foundation stone of the row houses after a function to sign agreements to construct the row houses.

The 25 row houses are being built under government’s housing scheme to develop 10,000 housing units at reasonable prices, which is one of the key pledges of the government.

The projects in Naifaru will be undertaken separately by A Man Maldives Pvt Ltd, Amin Construction Pvt Ltd and Swift Engineering Pvt Ltd. The agreements require these companies to begin mobilization work within 21 days after signing the agreements.

The two-storey row houses will have a living room, dining area, toilet and storage area in the first floor and three bedrooms in the second floor.

President Nasheed left for Naifaru earlier today and will return to Male on Thursday.
