THE Mandalay City Development Committee and construction companies have been building apartments since January 2014that will be rented to squatters living along the banks of the Ayeyawady River and other domestic migrant workers living near jetties in Aungmyethasan Township.
Each of the 22 six-story buildings will have 12 units measuring 30 feet by 20 feet, and each apartment will have bathrooms, toilets, kitchen and bedrooms. The 1,584 apartments are being built on Strand Road in Aungmyethasan.
Some buildings are scheduled to be completed in December. People who are currently living on bamboo barges or on the river banks with proper legal household papers and have reported to their ward administration offices will be prioritised when they seek accommodation at the apartments, according to an MCDC source.—Maung Pyithu (Mandalay)
