Five architects shortlisted for RM1bil job
KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Sunrise Development Sdn Bhd (SDSD) has shortlisted architectural companies to send in their designs for its RM1bil mixed development project in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam.
The five are award-winning architectural firms, namely BIG, J&H Boifills, Benoy, DP Architects and Hijjas Kasturi, who are renowned for their forte in commercial developments and excellent achievements.
Datuk Tong Kooi Ong: We are confident of being successful.
“Our design participants were selected based on their vast and relevant experience in the comprehensive mixed development, international exposure and commitment to sustainability,” Sunrise Bhd’s executive chairman Datuk Tong Kooi Ong said in a statement yesterday.
The shortlisted architects are expected to present their design concept to the SDSD board of directors on Aug 13, 2010 and the winner would be announced at a later date, he said.
On the project in Bukit Jelutong, which would be a 50-50 joint venture between Sime Darby and Sunrise, he said the company was confident of it being as successful as its other projects.
“Having completed three commercial developments under the Sunrise brand, we are confident of replicating our success in Mont’Kiara to other geographical location, setting the benchmark for creative, contextual design and achieving a sustainable development of long-lasting architectural quality,” he said.
Bukit Jelutong is a self-contained and an excellently planned community spread over 2,200 acres of prime freehold land.
It is well served with a transportation network that link to the other towns in the Klang Valley via expressways.
Meanwhile, SDSD’s mixed development project will cover 21 acres and will be part of the strategically planned Bukit Jelutong Commercial Centre that span 120 acres.
The project will have a gross built-up area approximately 2.7 million sq ft, consisting of 80% for retail namely shop-offices and office-suites and 20% for serviced apartments.
Work will begin next year and the project will be developed in five phases and completed in seven years. – Bernama

City&Country: Landmark development for Bukit Jelutong
By E Jacqui Chan of The Edge Malaysia
Sunday, 12 September 2010 00:00
Bukit Jelutong in Shah Alam will soon have a world-class development. Five award-winning international architectural firms have answered the call for design proposals for a 21-acre mixed development jointly undertaken by Sime Darby Bhd and Sunrise Bhd.
The project is part of the 180-acre Bukit Jelutong Commercial Centre. The proposals are for a development with a gross built-up of about 2.7 million sq ft, comprising retail (40%), shopoffices and office suites (40%) and serviced apartments (20%), and an estimated gross development value of RM1 billion.
One of the salient features that will set this upcoming project apart is its architecture, reflected in the calibre of the five shortlisted architectural firms — Denmark’s BIG, which designed the much-acclaimed Danish Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010; Benoy with offices in the UK and Hong Kong, which designed ION Orchard in Singapore; Singapore’s DP Architects, which designed Orchard Central also in Singapore; France’s J & H Boiffils, which designed Siam Paragon in Thailand; and Malaysia’s own Hijjas Kasturi.
These firms are renowned for their commercial developments with numerous achievements under their belts. A notable feature found in all five proposals is their environment-friendly and sustainable building characteristics.
The principals of the five firms were in Kuala Lumpur on Aug 13 to present their design proposals.
Having completed three commercial developments under the Sunrise brand, Sunrise is confident of replicating its success in Mont’Kiara in other locations, setting the benchmark for creative and contextual design and achieving a sustainable development of long-lasting architectural quality, says Sunrise’s executive chairman Datuk Tong Kooi Ong in a press statement.
The design proposals from BIG(left) and Benoy (right)
BIG’s design proposal is inspired by the national flower of Malaysia — the bunga raya.
“Bunga in Malay means ‘flower’ while raya means ‘celebration’ so our proposal represents our intention to create a place to celebrate the Malaysian lifestyle,” says Jakob Lange, partner of BIG.
BIG’s proposal is also aimed at creating a retail experience like no other in Kuala Lumpur, acknowledging the Malaysian preference to drive directly to preferred shops.
“So the five districts, or petals, are each formed to provide maximum street frontage with ease of access,” says Lange.
Benoy’s design, meanwhile, seeks to create a sustainable development that is in synergy with nature. It drew its inspiration from the tropical rainforest to create a habitable environment.
“The design has five unique ‘glades’ — openings in a forest with their own identities within an integrated development,” explains Simon Blore, managing director of Benoy.
The design proposals from DP Architects
For Hoo Chuen Piew, associate director of DP Architects, the key challenges in conceptualising the design for the project were the green strategy and synergy.
As the office and serviced apartments form the backdrop of the development due to their location, the question was how to maximise frontage, wind, shade and greenery simultaneously.
“We adapted the natural elements by addressing the building’s shape and profile, introducing green synergy at several levels to link the spaces horizontally and vertically,” says Hoo.
DP Architects also uses sun-shading devices, grand cascading water features and a green roof to compliment the spaces and enhance the physical realm.
The design proposals from Hijjas Kasturi
For homegrown Hijjas Kasturi, the design embraces the principal idea of sustainable communities. “We interpret sustainability beyond green, energy and efficient use of resources but linking it to Bukit Jelutong and creating a sustainable community, a place for people,” says its director Serina Hijjas.
The project will be developed in five stages over seven years, beginning next year.

Sunrise-Sime partnership progressing well: Tong
Saturday November 13, 2010
By ANGIE NG
PETALING JAYA: Doubts over the status of a joint venture between Sunrise Bhd and Sime Darby Property Bhd to undertake an integrated commercial property project in Bukit Jelutong were dispelled after Sunrise executive chairman Datuk Tong Kooi Ong said the partnership was progressing well.
In an e-mail interview with StarBizWeek on the status of the joint venture, Tong said the joint development committee met regularly and the project planning was very advanced.
"We are working with an international architect and making decisions with Sime Darby on the product offerings and mix. Hopefully, we can bring this project to the market by the end of next year," added Tong.
The 50:50 joint venture was inked in January to develop 21 acres in Bukit Jelutong.
Sime Darby Bhd, the parent of Sime Darby Property, had in August said the conglomerate was taking a re-look at some of its property joint ventures and, where possible, would be seeking to unwind out of ventures that did not create maximum value for itself.
Besides the joint venture with Sunrise, Sime Darby Property also has 60:40 joint ventures with the Brunsfield Group to develop property projects such as Subang Avenue, Oasis Damansara and the redevelopment of Oyster Cove, an exclusive waterfront resort on Australia's Gold Coast.
In a separate e-mail response, Sime Darby acting president and group chief executive Datuk Mohd Bakke Salleh said the group's new management and the board were reviewing all joint-venture agreements to ensure that the interests of Sime Darby were safeguarded.
"Currently, there is no conclusion to end any joint venture. We regularly perform reviews of our businesses and joint ventures to ensure that they are still in line with our objectives. We are extracting the most value out of our partnerships," he added.
According to Bakke, the Bukit Jelutong venture would comprise retail space, shop offices, office suites and serviced apartments with gross built-up area of approximately 2.7 million sq ft.
It will be developed over five phases with the first phase scheduled for launch in July next year.
"The project with a gross development value of RM1bil is expected to be completed in seven years from the launch of phase one."
Phase one will comprise retail space and offices; phases two and three will be retail, offices and serviced apartments; while the fourth and fifth phases will be retail and offices.

cool shopping mall at bukit jelutong
Shah Alam to have its own cineplex
Story and photo by ELAN PERUMAL
SHAH ALAM will finally see the first cinema at Space U8 mall in Taman Bukit Jelutong by the middle of next year.
Mainstay Development Sdn Bhd executive chairman Raja Mohd Azmi Raja Razali the seven-hall cineplex would be housed in the four-storey mall costing RM200mil.
“The cineplex, equipped with the latest audio visual technology, will be operated by MBO Cinemas. The cineplex will show 3D films as well,’’ he said.
Being a Shah Alam resident himself, Raja Azmi said, he shared the concerns of the residents on the need for a cineplex in the city. “They do not have to go to Klang, Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya or Kuala Lumpur once the mall is opened,’’ he said.
He also said they expected movie buffs from neighbouring areas such as Subang Jaya and Kelana Jaya to visit the mall.
Raja Azmi said the mall would have family entertainment lounges and a 24-lane bowling alley.
“We are expecting the mall to become a hit among the working class.
“They do not have much option for shopping, dining and entertainment in Shah Alam now and I believe will be the best place to be once it is ready,’’ he said.

J + H Boiffils to design iconic development in Bukit Jelutong
By Rosalynn Poh of The Edge Malaysia
Sunday, 02 January 2011 00:00
Sime Darby Sunrise Development Sdn Bhd (SDSD) has appointed internationally acclaimed French architectural firm J + H Boiffils to design its 21-acre mixed development project in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam.
The yet-to-be-named RM1 billion development is situated in the planned 180-acre Bukit Jelutong Commercial Centre (BJCC).
J + H Boiffils, in collaboration with Colorado-based Randy Shortridge of RB + B, was chosen as its design proposal best fulfils the vision of the project, says SDSD.
The French firm was shortlisted following its design proposal presentations in August, together with four other architectural firms — Denmark’s BIG, which designed the much-acclaimed Danish Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo 2010; Benoy, which designed ION Orchard in Singapore; Singapore’s DP Architects, which designed Orchard Central also in Singapore; and Malaysia’s Hijjas Kasturi.
J + H Boiffils designed Siam Paragon and Crystal Design Center in Bangkok, Thailand.
“Siam Paragon was one of the biggest shopping malls in the world at that time while Crystal Design Center was, for us, an opportunity to develop a new style of shopping centre in a tropical climate, mixing outdoor and indoor circulations. The 21-acre site [in Bukit Jelutong] is a sufficient size to give us the possibility to test new ideas for new urban solutions,” says the founder and president of J + H Boiffils, Jacqueline Boiffils.
“Our design delivers intelligent solutions and balances out the commercial, social and ecological demands. Our aspiration is to create an exciting retail experience, emphasising pedestrian streets and plazas,” she adds.
She believes the diversity of the firm’s multi-cultural team from Venezuela, Thailand, China, US and Europe, and the expertise of its architects, interior designers and designers, allow it to take on such high-scale projects.
The Bukit Jelutong project will have retail spaces, offices and serviced apartments to be built over five phases. The proposed design concept is based on a South European or Mediterranean way of life, influenced by the mixed cultures of Malaysians. The main features include a large tree-lined pedestrian promenade with kiosks and plazas surrounded by coffee shops and restaurants as well as a park which the whole family can enjoy.
The design also allows its anchor tenants to be in three separate areas, for instance, a supermarket at the base of the serviced apartments, an entertainment complex and a design centre for home decor.
“Our intention is to create a sense of belonging, a centre of civic life and community, truly a gathering place and focus for the entire Bukit Jelutong area and beyond. We proposed the name ‘Le Faubourg’ for the project. In France, a faubourg is a quarter close to the city. The quarter eventually becomes part of the city yet maintains its own identity,” Boiffils explains.
While the firm has been present in Asia for over 15 years, the Bukit Jelutong project will be its first in Malaysia. It will be a great opportunity for the firm to venture into the Malaysian market, says Boiffils.
“Our hope is that it will give us the opportunity to have a base in this part of the world because the openness to creative architecture in Asia is extremely motivating. Our 15 years in Asia, first in Thailand then in Hong Kong, Japan and China, has been rewarded by this appointment,” she adds.
SDSD, a 50:50 joint-venture between Sime Darby Bhd and Sunrise Bhd, expects the project, with a gross built-up area of 2.7 million sq ft, to be fully completed in seven years from the launch of the first phase, which is targeted for 2H2011.
“We are pleased that the architects have been able to translate the concept of sustainable living into their design. Besides successfully articulating our values and aspirations, the design complements the current development and living concept in Bukit Jelutong,” says Sime Darby Property Bhd managing director Datuk Tunku Putra Badlishah. “I am confident that the residents of Bukit Jelutong and its neighbouring areas will appreciate the value this landmark development will bring to their community.”
Sunrise executive chairman Datuk Tong Kooi Ong adds: “Often, it is the most simple and straightforward solution that offers the highest potential for embracing sustainability, in all aspects of a project — from design to construction and its eventual operation.”
Tong says SDSD is committed to collaborating with like-minded architects and working with leading designers on its first integrated residential and commercial project in Bukit Jelutong that focuses on the ecological principles of architecture.
The heart of the development will feature a central park and a series of unique landscape elements and public spaces, including a tree-lined promenade, plazas, a covered pedestrian boulevard and a sprawling recreational deck planned around a “racetrack” design principle. Each phase and component will have its own surprise element exuding strong individualism yet existing in harmony within its entire context.
Sustainability is one of the fundamental and core principles in the entire design process.
Says Tong: “Passive design considerations are taken into account from the start of the development conceptualisation. Key elements such as building orientation, massing arrangements, permeability to encourage natural air flow and maximum utilisation of natural ventilation will be considered and incorporated whenever possible ... knowing that these are the criteria that offer the most potential for attaining sustainability without the need to lavishly spend on buying green technologies and in the process consuming even more natural resources.
“We are working with a renowned sustainability consultant to explore how the natural features of the site and the surrounding can be best utilised, such as maintaining the natural site terrain, utilising stormwater as a landscape feature, having the recreational deck double as the green roof of retail spaces and so on.”
The developer will also be trying out some new modelling and simulation tools for the study of the urban heat island effect, micro-climate analysis and others to identify areas of concern to ensure optimum comfort for the occupants.
The 2,200-acre Bukit Jelutong is a self-contained township located close to the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Golf Club and the Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam Agricultural Park and easily accessible to other townships in the Klang Valley via expressways.

Space U8 to open in June
By Rosalynn Poh of theedgeproperty.com
Thursday, 27 January 2011 16:15
KUALA LUMPUR: Space U8, Malaysia's first eco-mall developed by Mainstay Development Sdn Bhd is scheduled to open in June. The RM200 million mall located within Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam is currently 90% complete.
Mainstay Development Sdn Bhd executive chairman Raja Mohd Azmi Raja Razali said the mall, which is currently 50% tenanted, will also host Shah Alam's first ever cineplex. The MBO Cineplex will comprise seven theatres, or 1,300 seating capacity. He expects Space U8 to be 70% to 80% occupied by the time it opens.
"The project has evolved from our initial plans of a shophouse-like environment. Space U8 is unique as it combines various key elements such as a 70,000 sq ft courtyard that is suitable for all sorts of events and expositions, a 24-lane bowling centre and a 10,000 sq ft IT Centre," he said.
There will also be a 16,000 sq ft fresh market area on the ground floor known as Fresh Boulevard and a 10,000 sq ft food court among other food and beverage outlets. It is currently in talks with other retailers including the Metrojaya Group, Courts Mammoth and Celebrity Fitness, Raja Mohd Azmi said at a media briefing on Thursday, Jan 27.
"Major tenants include the bowling alley and a supermarket," he added. Out of the 200 retail units in Space U8, Raja Mohd Azmi said 90% have been sold. The developer owns parts of the mall, including the courtyard, atrium and car park.
The 4-level complex has a total net lettable area of 600,000 sq ft. The ground floor will comprise food and beverage outlets, banking, retail, the Fresh Boulevard and the IT centre, while the first floor will feature fashion retailers. The second floor will offer education-related retailers while the third floor comprises sports, health & wellness outlets, bowling alley, cinema and a karaoke centre.
Close to RM10 mil was spent on the green features of the mall, which is expected to obtain the Green Building Index certification upon completion. Among its green features are rainwater harvesting, solar panels on the roof that will provide sufficient electricity to the common areas, as well as using tyres for the foundation, which reduces the building's temperature and help maintain the central courtyard's temperature at 25°C.
"We're just 15 minutes from Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Kelana Jaya, Klang and Denai Alam, so we're quite confident that Space U8 is going to be the next sought after location and popular destination for those who don't want to head towards Kuala Lumpur," he added. The developer is also planning to build a premier surau within the development although the design has yet to be confirmed.
The mall is targeted at medium to upper income families and the developer said there is an immediate catchment of 200,000 from surrounding townships such as Denai Alam, Ara Damansara as well as Bukit Jelutong.
Meanwhile, the developer is looking to launch its first residential development near Putrajaya sometime in April or May this year. It will comprise 40 bungalows with common facilities featuring green elements. Aside from the upcoming launch of its residential project just five minutes from Alamanda Putrajaya shopping centre in Putrajaya, the developer also owns a tract in Dengkil, Selangor.
"Our projects will have green elements. We will be looking at various opportunities within the next two years. It is important Space U8 does well as it is our first signature development," he added.

SHAH ALAM: Mainstay Development Sdn Bhd, the developer of the RM220 million space u8 mall in Bukit Jelutong township, welcomed five of its major tenants during its tenancy signing ceremony on Tuesday, May 3.
The five pioneer outlets announced during the signing ceremony are: MBO Cineplex, featuring seven halls with a total capacity of 1,400 patrons; a 24-lane bowling centre called Shalin's Bowl by national bowler Shalin Zulkifli; Fresh Boulevard, which offers 18,000 sq ft of fresh produce, meat and poultry; a 15,000 sq ft food court called Space Wok; and fanpastico, the first pasta restaurant chain.
Scheduled for a soft opening by July, the mall offers a total gross lettable area of 600,000 sq ft as well as a 70,000 open courtyard. The mall offers rental rates between RM2 to RM30 psf depending on size and location. The developer is keeping a third of the mall for its recurring income as well as to manage its major tenants. The official opening is expected sometime in November.
"Without doubt, space u8 will be offering dining, entertainment and retail experiences which the residents of Shah Alam and its environs have never had so conveniently close to them before as it is located just 15 minutes from Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Kelana Jaya, Denai Alam and Klang," space u8 CEO Raja Ahmad Nizam Raja Razali said.
"The lifestyle outlets we are welcoming today are just the first of what is to come as space u8 develops into a sought after location and popular destination for those who do not want to head towards Kuala Lumpur."
Datuk Mohd Jaafar Mohd Atan, the mayor of Shah Alam who was present to witness the signing ceremony, said: "In the next 5-7 years, I am sure space u8 will be one of the most vibrant centres in Shah Alam. We very much welcome this mall as we need a place for families, a place for businesses and recreation to make Shah Alam more vibrant."
Mainstay Holdings Sdn Bhd group CEO Ang Teck Seong said they expect 500,000 visitors during the mall's first month of opening. The first event to be held in space u8 would be the Super Car Charity Challenge from May 18-22.
Meanwhile, other restaurants set to open in the mall include Uncle Lim kopitiam, Sari Ratu, Famous Thai and Subway. The developer is also currently in talks with several banks to open branches in space u8.
space u8 is Malaysia's first eco-mall, sitting on a foundation of used tyres, which dissipate heat from the ground to reduce the building's temperature and help maintain the atrium at 25ºC.

Suria Jelutong first phase launch attracts young investors
By Haziq Hamid of theedgeproperty.com
Monday, 12 March 2012 00:00
DAMANSARA (Mar 12): Sunsuria Development Sdn Bhd has launched the first phase of its Suria Jelutong mixed development in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam.
Situated next to the Bukit Cahaya Forest Reserve, the first phase of Suria Jelutong sits on 4.5-acres of freehold land with a gross development value (GDV) of RM270 million. The mixed development comprises 666 units of serviced residential suites and 48 units of 1.5-storey retail boutiques and 2- to 3-storey shop offices.
During the launch, the serviced suites at Suria Jelutong achieved a take-up of nearly 70% by mainly young investors. The retail boutique suites and shop offices have a take up rate of 85%,
"We are seeing a buyer profile that is made up of mainly youngsters. I would say 60% of our buyers are investors while 30% are made up of home owners and the remaining 10%, are others," said its sales and marketing director Simon Kwan at the official launch last Friday at its sales gallery in Sunsuria Avenue, Kota Damansara.
The serviced suites are housed in two 18-storey towers. Tower A has 285 units while Tower B has 381 units. The size of the serviced suites range from 450 sq ft to 1,650 sq ft. Prices start from RM287,000 to RM999,000 or at an average RM580 psf. Facilities include a sky gym and infinity pool plus security features.
Meanwhile, the retail boutique units have built-ups of 548 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft with prices starting from RM638,000 to RM2.5 million while the shop offices are 548 sq ft to 3,100 sq ft with prices from RM638,000 to RM1.8 million.
The developer expects the first phase of Suria Jelutong to be fully taken up within the next three months. Suria Jelutong will be developed on an 11.5-acre plot over three phases. The second and third phases are still being conceptualized.
Bukit Jelutong is primarily made up of high-end residential properties with few commercial projects, said Kwan. "We believe there is a demand for a commercial development within the matured residential area. The existing academic institutions in the area will also play a role in increasing the attractiveness of our development," he said.
Suria Jelutong is accessible via various highways including the North Klang Valley Exit (NKVE) and the KESAS highway.
Kwan said although the current property market looks slow, it will eventually stabilise.
"At this moment, the property market looks quite slow given the loan tightening by the banks — but we expect conditions to stabilise by the second half of the year," he said.
Established in 1989, Sunsuria has several developments under its belt. "We are quite a niche market developer, and we cater to a small niche community. We started with the development of a sports complex in Ampang," said Kwan referring to the Sunsuria Ampang Sports Complex in Ampang Jaya. The developers had seen a piece of recreational land that nobody took notice of, which was abandoned for quite some time. After acquiring it, they built a retail component and a recreational component on the site. The development houses a FIFA-sized futsal court, eight standard futsal pitches and eight badminton courts.
Sunsuria has also developed Sunsuria Avenue at section 4, Kota Damansara and Sunsuria Technology Centre at Section 3, Kota Damansara. It has also recently launched phase 1 of The Core at Section 3, Kota Damansara, which has since been fully taken up; the second phase is being planned.
On whether it is looking to build overseas, Kwan says the developer may look at venturing into China in the near future.
