Tradewinds plans new set of 'jewels'
By Vasantha Ganesan Published: 2011/02/24
Tradewinds plans to demolish Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa to make way for a new property project.
Tradewinds Corp Bhd (4804), controlled by businessman Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary, plans to demolish two of its prized assets in Kuala Lumpur to make way for a "multi-billion-ringgit" mixed commercial development.
This means that the Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa, both located on Jalan Sultan Ismail, will make way for a new property project.
Chairman Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas said the plan is in the advanced concept stage and could take more than a year to start. However, the development order for the site plan is already out.
"We have a very precious piece of land. The hotel together with Kompleks Antarabangsa is on a 2.43ha land," Megat Najmuddin told Business Times in a phone interview.
Tradewinds, he said, is looking at the possibility of building an office, retail and residence component on the land to provide the group with a recurring income stream.
On how high it would be or would it be just a single tower, he said it will be "something soaring".
Megat Najmuddin added that the cost of construction would be in the tune of "billions" of ringgit.
Based on Tradewinds's latest annual report, the hotel is 38 years old, while Kompleks Antarabangsa is 30 years old.
Crowne Plaza Mutiara is a 35-storey hotel with 565 rooms while Kompleks Antarabangsa is a 21-storey office building with five-split level car parks. As at December 31 2009, the net book value of the office building is RM159.83 million.
In April last year, Tradewinds's 85.1 per cent unit, Tradewinds Hotels & Resorts Sdn Bhd, entered an agreement to sell Crowne Plaza to Symbolic Supreme Sdn Bhd for RM384 million. Tradewinds owns 100 per cent of Symbolic Supreme. The transfer is to facilitate the development.
Based on recent land deals in Kuala Lumpur, the building together with the land may now be worth some RM1.5 billion.
The Crowne Plaza is managed by the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). It is understood that IHG may still have eight years remaining under the management contract.
Prior to IHG's management of the hotel, Tradewinds managed the hotel on its own for a short period under the name Mutiara KL.
The hotel first opened as the Kuala Lumpur Hilton.
Tradewinds also owns Hotel Istana, which is located a stone's throw away from Crowne Plaza and Hilton Petaling Jaya and Hilton Kuching.
Other properties under the group include Menara Tun Razak on Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur.

Pressure on owners to refurbish old buildings
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2011/03/17
THERE will be pressure on owners of old office building in the Klang Valley as they will be forced to refurbish or redevelop their properties to keep tenants.
Landlords of aging buildings will face a threat with 17.1 million sq ft of new office space coming into the market by 2013, said CH Williams Talhar & Wong Sdn Bhd managing director Foo Gee Jen.
To face off competition, Foo said, the landlords will have to consider installing green features and modern facilities to flow with the current trend.
"The only way forward is to demolish the buildings and rebuild," Foo said yesterday in Kuala Lumpur, at the launch of the company's 2011 property market outlook report.
Old buildings in Kuala Lumpur that will be demolished to make way for new projects include Kompleks Antarabangsa and Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel on Jalan Sultan Ismail, and Wisma Angkasa Raya on Jalan Ampang. Bangunan MAS, meanwhile, will be upgraded.
Foo said it would cost landlords some RM250 per sq ft (psf)to build a new tower and about RM150 psf to refurbish an old building, of more than 25 years.
"With a fresh look and new facilities, they can raise their rental rates," he said.
Currently, a building more than 10 years old is tenanted at around RM5.00 psf while less than that is going for RM6.00 to RM6.20 psf. For the new office supply, the asking price is RM7.00 to RM7.50 psf, Foo said.
On the new supply, Foo said there could be a challenge by the building owners to fill up the space but it may be overcome if the entry point projects (EPP) under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) are implemented yearly.
Foo said with the EPP and ETP, more multi-national companies (MNCs) are expected to relocate here.
"There is strong interest from MNCs from the US and Europe involved in oil & gas, pharmaceuticals and information technology," Foo said.
He said the ETP and EPP will also strengthen the market for residential properties, retail and hotels.
"The landed residential segment will remain the most active this year while we expect moderate growth for the rest of the sectors," Foo said.

Tradewinds project to change KL skyline
By Vasantha Ganesan Published: 2011/04/21
A New "multi-billion ringgit" development on a plot of land where the Crowne Plaza and Kompleks Antarabangsa now sit is expected to be completed in 2016, according to an architect's website.
According to the GDP Architects' website, the project - dubbed the "Tradewinds Centre"- will involve a total gross area of 3.17 million sq m and on a plot ratio of 10.55.
The web page and the artist's impression were, however, removed from the website late yesterday evening.
"The Tradewinds Centre explicitly seeks to establish itself in the international arena of great financial developments. The Tradewinds project offers Kuala Lumpur many exciting features that will enhance and expand the city's growing modern qualities, similar to Rockefeller Center for New York or Roppongi Hills for Tokyo," the website said.
The development, to be carried out by Tradewinds Corp Bhd, will encompass four towers and be built on a 2.79ha plot along Jalan Sultan Ismail.
These towers will each have 60 storeys, 55 storeys, 14 storeys and eight storeys. They will house offices, serviced apartments, retail and a medical centre.
GDP added that the development will be vibrant and active at all times through its complex programme mix.
"Its signature profile will greatly contribute to the overall composition of the city skyline. Its large scale and memorable public plaza unites neighbourhoods in the urban fabric, creating a system of pedestrian friendly movement that is integrated with the public transportation system," GDP added.
The architecture of the buildings establishes connections with traditions of Kuala Lumpur's rich history by linking Islamic pattern making to its modern exterior design.
Its sustainable strategy will make the building a leader in environmental design, it said. The entire centre will have a total of 2,888 carparks.
However, it is understood that some changes may be made to the plan.

Hotel Istana to come down
By Vasantha Ganesan Published: 2011/09/23
Kuala Lumpur: Tradewinds Corp Bhd may demolish yet another building in the city centre.
Kuala Lumpur mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said that TCB has been granted a development order for the 20-year-old Hotel Istana, located at the corner of Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Sultan Ismail.
Ahmad Fuad said the order was granted this year to make way for another project.
The 30-year-old Hotel Istana sits on a freehold land measuring 11,803 sq m. The 25-storey hotel has a room inventory of 516 rooms.
TCB, controlled by tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary, had last year been granted an order that would allow it to bring down the 39-year-old Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and the 32-year-old Kompleks Antarabangsa.
The demolishment of these two assets located along Jalan Sultan Ismail is to make way for a "multi-billion-ringgit" mixed commercial development.
The project, dubbed the "Tradewinds Centre", is said to involve a total gross area of 3.17 million sq m.
"Crowne Plaza will be demolished and there will be a new one (new accommodation) and Hotel Istana will be demolished to have a new one," Ahmad Fuad said after the ground-breaking ceremony for the Holiday Villa Kuala Lumpur City Centre yesterday.
Given that the Mutiara Beach Resort in Penang had been closed for several years now and TCB has the Tradewinds Centre project in hand, plans for redevelopment of the Hotel Istana site could take some years.
It is understood that over the years, the hotel had been attracting many buyers. In 2007, TCB had even weighed the option of setting up a real estate investment trust that would comprise its hotels.

Crowne Plaza to make way for Tradewinds Centre project
VASANTHA GANESAN Published: 2012/06/28
KUALA LUMPUR: Tradewinds Corp Bhd (TCB) is scheduled to demolish two of its buildings here next year to make way for the Tradewinds Centre project.
The Tradewinds Centre, which will have four towers and is stimated to have a gross development value of more than RM5 billion, will be built at the locations of the Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa in Jalan Sultan Ismail.
The project will sit on a 2.8ha land and consist of office units, serviced apartments and a retail component.
According to sources, Crowne Plaza, which is managed by international hotel group Inter Continental Hotels Group (IHG), is expected to close its doors in March next year.
It is unclear if IHG will be compensated should its management contract be terminated ahead of its tenure.
Crowne Plaza could not be reached for an immediate response.
Crowne Plaza is a 35-storey hotel with 565 rooms while Kompleks Antarabangsa is a 21-storey office building with five split-level
Business Times had reported earlier last year that TCB was looking for a partner to help fund the project.
Sources said a related company could buy one of the four towers for an estimated RM600 million.
Attempts to contact TCB group chief executive officer Shaharul Farez Hassan failed.
A search on the Internet reveals GDP Architect as the architect hand-ling the Tradewinds Centre project with the first phase of completion slated for 2016.
"The Tradewinds Centre explicitly seeks to establish itself in the international arena of great financial developments. The Tradewinds project offers Kuala Lumpur many exciting features that will enhance and expand the city's growing modern qualities, similar to Rockefeller Center for New York, or Roppongi Hills, for Tokyo," said the architect firm's website, which also carries an artist's impression of the building.
The total gross floor area is 3.17 million sq m and it will have 2,888 parking lots.
Interestingly, in September last year, the then Kuala Lumpur mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said it had granted TCB an order to redevelop the 21-year-old Hotel Istana, located at the corner of Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Sultan Ismail.
TCB will hold its annual general meeting tomorrow.

Tradewinds to redevelop Crowne Plaza
KUALA LUMPUR: Tradewinds Corp Bhd (TCB) confirmed today that it will demolish the Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa in Jalan Sultan Ismail to pave the way for a RM6 billion mixed development project.
The company said it will redevelop the 2.8 hectare land on its own, and not via a joint venture as reported previously.
The project, comprising grade A+ offices, serviced apartments and
retail space, is scheduled to be completed in seven years.
Speaking to reporters after meeting with stakeholders here, its Chief Executive Officer Shaharul Farez Hassan said the project will be funded by bank loans and debt equity, with a ratio of 70:30.
"We are talking with a few banks now," he added.
Crowne Plaza is a 35-storey hotel with over 500 rooms while Kompleks Antarabangsa is a 21-storey office building.
The project once completed, will reportedly, be known as the
Tradewinds Centre. -- BERNAMA

Tradewinds kicks off RM6b project, upgrades more assets
KUALA LUMPUR: Tradewinds Corp Bhd (TCB) will demolish the Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur and Kompleks Antarabangsa as early as the first quarter of 2013 to build a RM6 billion Tradewinds Centre.
To be located on a 2.8ha site, the project with four towers and a retail podium, will have a total gross floor area of 3.77 million sq ft and a net floor area of 2.78 million sq ft.
The whole project will be completed in 2019.
“The buildings (along Jalan Sultan Ismail) will be demolished in the first quarter of 2013 or early part of the second quarter,” group chief executive officer Shaharul Farez Hassan said.
Shaharul said Crowne Plaza’s last day of operations will be on January 2 next year and that TCB is in negotiations with hotel operator InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) on ending the management contract ahead of its term.
It is understood that Crowne Plaza held a townhall session yesterday to notify its staff on the last day of operations.
Shaharul said financing for the project would be from a combination of debt and equity.
“We will fund it with debt and equity. We are in talks with key bankers,” he said, adding that the ratio would be 70:30.
Another redevelopment by TCB is the Mutiara Burau Bay Resort in Langkawi, which will close in the first quarter next year.
The hotel is slated for a makeover that would push it to a five-star property from three-starTCB will spend about RM200 million to develop the property, targeted for completion in three years.
TCB, which has been the operator of Mutiara Burau Bay for Langkawi Development Authority, will now lease the land and build its own hotel.
It plans to hire a third party to manage the property.
TCB has refurbished some of its hotels to cushion the impact of the closures of Kompleks Antarabangsa, Crowne Plaza, Mutiara Burau Bay and Menara Tun Razak (MTR).
The latter building at Jalan Raja Laut in Kuala Lumpur will be upgraded to a Grade A office building.
Refurbishing efforts include renovating the Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa for an estimated RM60 million, Hilton Petaling Jaya (RM50 million), Hilton Kuching and Hotel Istana.
Shaharul, who spoke to reporters after TCB's annual general meeting yesterday, said the upgrading of MTR will help double its per sq ft rent to RM7 from RM3.50. The block is expected to be completed by end-2014.
A new tower called MTR2, to be built adjacent to MTR , has been sold to Tradewinds (M) Bhd for RM510 million.
On reports that TCB is interested in buying Bukit Bintang Plaza to accommodate the MY Rapid Transit (MRT) station, chairman Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas said: "We are in talks (with UDA Holdings Bhd), but nothing concrete has come out of it."
TCB also said that it is unlikely that anything will happen soon to its planned redevelopment of Hotel Istana.

City&Country : Cover Story -- Creating an icon
By Rosalynn Poh of The Edge Malaysia
Monday, 30 July 2012 00:00
Inspired by the Rockefeller Center
Tradewinds Corp Bhd, one of the largest hotel owners in the country, is ready to make its mark as a noted property developer in the country and the region. It aims to achieve this goal with an iconic project worth a whopping RM5.6 billion in gross development value in Jalan Sultan Ismail in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Dubbed Tradewinds Centre, the mixed-use development designed by international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF) will be situated on the 6.9-acre site where Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur and the adjacent Kompleks Antarabangsa now stand.
The project has five components — a 65-storey Grade A+ office skyscraper, a 54-storey serviced apartment tower next to it, a 14-storey medical centre, a 24-storey corporate office block and a retail podium-cum-central plaza at the centre of the development.
“Concept-wise, we like Rockefeller Center. It was created in the 1930s and is still relevant today. What is so exciting about it? You go there and see people from all over the world taking photos of the buildings and enjoying the environment. It has a garden and a sunken plaza with shops. During winter, they set up a small ice-skating rink and during Christmas, there’s this huge Christmas tree. It got me thinking that we lack that in Malaysia. Our buildings are all inward-looking and very exclusive in the sense that the people are kept out of it — it’s our building, our office, our land. When you walk up to a tall building, it can be quite intimidating.
“So we decided that we could create a group of buildings where people in Kuala Lumpur could feel a sense of belonging. Look at the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). You see busloads of people taking pictures and the public gets to use the pool or walk around the garden. We do not have the kind of land that they have, but we want to engage the community in a similar way. “We have seven acres, out of which one acre will be allocated for a central grand plaza,” says Poh.
Central Grand Plaza
The concept of the Central Grand Plaza is akin to that of the sunken plaza in Rockefeller Center. It takes advantage of the project’s two frontages — Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Tun Perak — so that the public have easy access. “You can enter from either road and immediately, you are within the project,” Poh says, adding that people can also walk through to get to KLCC.
He foresees people entering the plaza and taking pictures and enjoying the breeze and landscaping. It can also be used for New Year countdowns or other festive events. The project will be pedestrian-friendly as it will be connected to the existing elevated walkways in Jalan Perak.

Tradewinds to demolish 2 buildings in KL, says chairman
Posted on 4 September 2012 - 10:25pm
KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 4, 2012): The decision to demolish two buildings -- Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa -- in Kuala Lumpur owned by Tradewinds Corp Bhd is for the company's long-term interests.
Its chairman Tan Sri Megat Najimuddin Megat Khas said demolition work is expected to start early next year, at the latest.
"So far, everything is proceeding as planned," he said.
The two buildings at Jalan Sultan Ismail would be demolished to make way for a RM6 billion mixed development project slated for completion in 2020, he told reporters when queried on the justification to demolish the buildings.
Megat Najimuddin said the time has come for Tradewinds to change the landscape at the area to be on par with the surrounding buildings in the vicinity.
"The Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel was designed in the 1960s and in terms of facilities, particularly electrical and drainage systems, everything are in bad shape.
"Similarly, the Kompleks Antarabangsa building is also outdated and for us to get tenants for the office space is very difficult due to high maintenance costs," he told reporters at Tradewinds Hari Raya open house here tonight.
In terms of property value, Megat Najimuddin said the land area was the first to be sold based on square feet, different from the current trend where land are sold based on acreage value.
"The hotel land area was also the first to be sold based on square feet, for RM20 per sq ft, the price at that time, The hotel was the first to be given five-star rating.
"We became a trendsetter then and indirectly helped to develop the hotel and real estate industry in the country by leaps and bounds," he said, adding that the property value in the area now had shot up to more than RM4,000 per sq ft.
Asked on the impact to the company's annual revenue while construction work was on progress, Megat Najimuddin said the current revenue from the two buildings was only about 10 per cent which would not cause a big dent on the company's coffers.
"This is the company's sacrifice to guarantee Tradewinds future growth, more so to seize the opportunity in the high property value currently for a property located at a premium location," he added. – Bernama

Demolish the Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa
Modern superstructures to replace old buildings in Jalan Sultan Ismail
By BAVANI M Photo by LIM CHENG KIAT | Oct 19, 2012]
To come down: Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa will make way for new buildings.
THE landscape of Jalan Sultan Ismail in Kuala Lumpur will undergo a dramatic change over the next 10 years with several ageing buildings being demolished to make way for new structures.
Several iconic landmarks which have dotted the skyline for four decades will make way for sustainable modern superstructures to boost the image of the area.
Following the demolition of the Equatorial Hotel Kuala Lumpur in July, there are now plans to bring down the 40-year-old Crowne Plaza Mutiara KL as well as the 30-year-old Kompleks Antarabangsa early next year.
There are also talks involving the redevelopment of the 21-year-old Hotel Istana in the near future.
When contacted, a Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) spokesman confirmed it had received an application for a development order for Crowne Plaza Mutiara and Kompleks Antarabangsa.
The project is a mixed development comprising a hotel, office blocks and apartments with a structure measuring 65 storeys.
Industry experts such as town planners, architects and developers are calling this new method of “demolish and buildover” a new trend for the future that will see more areas in downtown Kuala Lumpur being transformed into vertical cities.
“Generally, when a city grows, it will move horizontally. But as time goes by and land becomes scarce, cities will have to grow vertically, like what is happening now in downtown Kuala Lumpur,’’ said Malaysian Institute of Planners (MIP) president Professor Datuk Dr Alias Abdullah.
“The practice of old hotels being rebuilt from scratch is common in other regions in Asia but these are not necessarily heritage buildings with historical significance,’’ said Alias.
This is a point that is agreed upon by Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) president Saifuddin Ahmad, who added that Kuala Lumpur was ready to welcome the skyscraper culture and that older buildings like Equatorial and Crowne Plaza must be revamped to make it more sustainable.
“Take the Equatorial Hotel and Concorde Hotel as examples.
“They were built decades ago when there were no requirements for carparks,’’ said Saifuddin.
“Currently, it is vital for buildings to have sufficient parking bays and even green technology for it to be sustainable.
“I forsee many more older buildings in the city coming down to make way for newer buildings in the future but it must include the green technology – that is the future trend’’ Saifuddin said.
Real Estate and Housing Developers Association Malaysia (Rehda) president Datuk Seri Michael Yam said like it or not, Kuala Lumpur had no choice but to eventually succumb to the skyscraper culture.
“Urbanisation is happening worldwide in every city as people migrate from smaller towns to the big cities in search of the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,’’ said Yam.
“It is true that with space constraints, a city has no choice but to grow vertically and developers have to intensify development with higher plot ratio and density.
“Of course, this causes other challenges like congestion and conservation of water, power and energy,’’ Yam said.
Developers, architects and city planners unanimously agree that in order to make a city liveable, it is necessary to build superstructures with home, office and retail all packaged into one building.
However, they also said vertical cities must be able to strike a balance in ensuring there is enough space for recreational space for those living in the city centre.
“While there is no way out but to increase plot ratio in commercial centres, the Government must push for more green areas and open spaces in vertical cities and that an ideal percentage should be about 40%,’’ said Alias.
Yam agrees with Alias but said that while development rules say that at least 10% of an area to be developed must be set aside for open space, some developers like Sunrise Berhad had managed to give back more green space to the community in developments such as Mont Kiara and other projects.
“But it is going to be a challenge to do so in developments that are located in the heart of the city where everything depends on the location, shape and size of land,’’ he said.
While planners and architects are advocating roof-top gardens, vertical forestation and grass crete as a way to strike the green balance, the experts believe that ultimately the city needs to be liveable and sustainable with efficient transportation model and a dynamic transport policy that will be able to manage congestion in a cost-effective way and reduce the burden on urban dwellers.
