Kinta Riverfront Hotel & Service Suites, Ipoh

Morubina To Build A 5-star Hotel At Ipoh Riverside
July 04, 2007 19:05 PM

IPOH, July 4 (Bernama) -- The Morubina Group will invest RM120 million in developing the Kinta Riverfront Hotel & Service Suites at Jalan Lim Bo Seng here, due for completion in September 2009.

Established in 1981, the Ipoh-based group has interests in hotel, property development and management, construction, food and beverage, pre-school to higher education, manufacturing and retailing.

Group managing director Ting Sing Yiew said Wednesday the project on a 2-ha site on the banks of the Kinta River will have two components - a RM80 million 19-storey five-star hotel and 20-storey RM40 million serviced apartments and suites.

"The 313-room hotel will be the first five-star here and its Grand Ballroom will be the largest pillarless hall in the city, able to accommodate up to 1,600 people," he said when met at the company's sales office here.

Ting expressed confidence that the hotel will help draw more visitors to Ipoh even though some quarters question whether the state capital really needs a five-star hotel.

"Some things need to be done to draw visitors; Ipoh needs a presentable hotel when big events are held," he stressed. "I am sure that when the hotel is ready, organisers of big and important events will beat a path to its door.

"Furthermore, Morubina seeks to integrate lifestyle property developments into the travel and tourism industry to enhance the mutual gain of both sectors."

On the 239 serviced apartments and suites, Ting said buyers have two choices - the 3-room Type A with 1,223 sq ft and the 2-room Type B of 808 sq ft.

Type A, with a river and park view, is priced between RM338,999 and RM438,999, while Type B is going for RM199,999-RM299,999.

Almost 40 percent of the units have been sold since the soft launch two weeks ago.

"We are also offering five penthouse units at between RM730,000 and RM2.8 million, but these are for invited purchasers only," he added.

According to Ting, the company will hold road shows abroad, including in Medan (Indonesia), Guangzhao (China), Thailand and Hong Kong, to promote the project, which will be officially launched in September.

He said the state government has agreed to upgrade and beautify a 29-ha area adjacent to the project.

"We will be developing a one-stop leisure centre with more than 300 shops and bazaars, over 50 cafes, restaurants and bistros, a flea market, and an auditorium along the 1.5 km stretch of the river bank," he said.

"This goes to prove that transforming the Kinta Valley into a tourist destination and restoring it to its former glory is no longer a dream."

Mini replicas of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Tower Bridge, the Penang Bridge, Bach de Roda Bridge in Spain and the Millau Bridge in France will be built at a cost of RM100,000 each as tourist attractions.

The Golden Gate Bridge has already been completed, Ting said.

The prevailing status quo in the market is such that the property sector serves to supplement the tourism industry.

Furthermore, Morubina seeks to integrate lifestyle property developments into the travel and tourism industry to enhance the mutual gain of both sectors. As part of its efforts, the Company is developing a 5-star hotel and 239 units of luxury service apartment along the Kinta River, which runs parallel to Jalan Lim Bo Seng in the city of Ipoh.

The hotel boasts a grand pillarless ballroom with a seating capacity of up to
1600 guests and 313 units of mixed accommodation including a presidential suite, etc.

The Morubina Group is also working closely with the Government of Perak to upgrade and beautify the 72 acres (29 hectare) of land located across from D.R. Park, developing a one-stop leisure center with more than 300 shops and bazaars, over 50 cafes, restaurants and bistros, flea market, Memory Lane, an auditorium and so much more, there's definitely something for everyone at the Kinta Riverfront. ( Only for rent not for sale), thus playing a vital role in enhancing the energy and vibrancy of Ipoh

Morubina pushes Kinta Riverfront to Chinese real estate investors

By SYLVIA LOOI

HEFEI: Developer Morubina Sdn Bhd is looking to China to attract investors for its latest project, Kinta Riverfront.

Group managing director Ting Sing Yew said buyers from China formed a substantial number of investors in its earlier project, Ipoh Kiara

“Our confidence was further boosted when we managed to sell 10 units in Kinta Riverfront during the Fourth International Small and Medium Enterprise exhibition held at Guangzhao last October,” he said in Hefei, China

Ting said the group planned to visit more cities in China this year to further promote the project.

“We are confident that as the Chinese's purchasing power increases, Kinta Riverfront will be an attractive project for them,” he added.

On the Kinta Riverfront project, Ting said sales had been swift with some 60% snapped up, valued at a total RM45.5mil.

Work on the project had been completed 30% and was due for completion by 2009.

The RM80mil 20-storey Kinta Riverfront Hotel and Service Suites project offers 239 units priced between RM199,999 and RM2.9mil each.

Ting also said the Kinta Riverfront project also received positive response from potential buyers in Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong.

Lim in his speech said the launch in China augured well for the Malaysia My Second Home programme.

Morubina’s Kinta Riverfront project ready by Sept 2009


Ting: Attracted buyers from Indonesia, Singapore and even China

PETALING JAYA: Ipoh’s first 5-star Kinta Riverfront Hotel & Suites on a fiveacre leasehold site along the Kinta River has registered sales of close to 80% of its serviced apartments. Developed by Morubina Sdn Bhd, a member of the Morubina Group of Companies, the project comprises a 19-storey hotel with 313 rooms and a 20-storey serviced apartment offering 239 suites for sale. The entire project has a gross development value of RM120 million and would be completed in Sept next year. Piling works for the project have commenced.

According to the developer, sales have been encouraging since its launch in June last year. Morubina’s managing director Ting Sing Yiew told theSun that its buyers were drawn to the project’s 15-year guaranteed rental scheme. “They found the scheme, which guarantees an annual rental yield of 7%, attractive. We also conducted road shows overseas and have attracted about 40 buyers from Indonesia, Singapore and even China,” said Ting, adding that it has set up sales offices in Medan and Guangzhou due to the overwhelming response. Its local buyers, however, are mostly from Perak and Ting said that most purchased it for investment reasons.

For the serviced apartments, which are unfurnished, the developer is offering two types for sale. The Type A design, totaling 126 units, has views of the riverfront and comes with a built-up area of 1,223 sq ft. Prices of the three-bedroom unit ranges between RM338,999 and RM438,999. Those with the heritage view is the two-bedroom 808 sq ft Type B design which totals 108 units and range from RM199,999 to RM299,999.

There are also five penthouses which come in two designs. With built-up areas of between 1,602 sq ft and 7,393 sq ft and prices from RM730,000 and RM2.8 million, buyers have a choice of between the fully furnished (with three bedrooms) or the partially furnished (with two bedrooms) units.

The developer is also offering an additional fixtures and fittings scheme priced at RM38,000 for Type A units and RM25,000 for Type B units. The maintenance and utility fee is free for those who opt for the guaranteed rental scheme. Those who purchase for own use need to pay 20 sen psf monthly.

The developer says that buyers need only pay an upfront instalment amounting to 20% of the selling price for the project, which employs the build-and-sell concept. The balance payment would be upon the issuance of the Certificate of Fitness for Occupation.

Meanwhile, the hotel component, to be managed by Morubina, would have presidential, royal, family and deluxe suites. “We are also offering standard facilities like any other 5-star hotel. We have a grand ballroom which accommodates 1,600 people, which is the biggest in Ipoh. There are five restaurants, a business centre, two basement car parks, pools and sporting facilities too,” said Ting. Other amenities include Wi-Fi broadband access, spas as well as safety elements such as closedcircuit televisions.

According to Ting, the Kinta Riverfront Hotel & Suites is a tourism-related project and it has since been given a Temporary Occupancy License by the state government to further develop both sides of the Kinta River, covering a 1.5km- stretch from Jalan Raja Musa Mahadi up to Jalan Sultan Iskandar.

“We will be building six mini-bridges, a replica of famous world bridges, along this stretch, costing some RM2 million. There will also be more than 300 shops, bazaars, food and beverage outlets, as well as an open-air auditorium,” said Ting, adding that the cost of developing the riverbank area amount to some RM30 million.

Piling works on project to resume next week
Saturday October 18, 2008
By CHRISTINA KOH
TheStar

THE developer of the ambitious Kinta Riverfront project will resume piling works near residential homes at Persiaran Istana, Ipoh, next week.

Morubina Group of Companies managing director Ting Sing Yiew assured that they were carrying out remedial measures following a stop work order issued after cracks appeared in several houses and a temple nearby.

Among the measures undertaken, he said, was the building of a soundproof wall to minimise noise from the piling works.

“I admit that it is our fault and we are trying to rectify the problem.

“Sometimes (the homes) are too near and we have no choice because we have to do the piling,” he told reporters in Ipoh on Thursday night.

Saying that the company would bear any cost for the remedial measures, Ting said it was not their intention to damage the residents’ homes.

”We are not about making money. People have said that I’m mad for doing this project but we wanted to create a project where everyone in Ipoh benefits,” he said.

The RM200mil Kinta River-front project, aimed at reviving the past glory of the Kinta Valley, is expected to boost business and tourism in the city centre here.

Ting confirmed that former Bond girl Datuk Michelle Yeoh would launch the project with state senior executive councillor Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham on Oct 26 at 7.30pm.

”She is and always will be an Ipoh girl. We are greatly excited to have her on board despite her hectic schedule,” he said.

The project, which runs along 1.2km stretch on both sides of the Kinta River, will feature the city’s first five-star hotel, service suites, bazaars, shops, mini theme parks and replicas of the world’s famous bridges.

So far, a replica of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and Perak’s own Silver Nest Bridge have been completed.

Also open to the public are the Moon River Cafe & Grill, food stalls and the Tin Gallery €” a museum with photographs and artefacts from Kinta Valley’s past at Jalan Lim Bo Seng here.

Michelle Yeoh to launch tourism project
By : Brenda Lim




IPOH: Bond girl Datuk Michelle Yeoh is expected to make an appearance in her hometown here on Oct 26 to launch the Kinta Riverfront tourism project.

Morubina Group of Companies group managing director Ting Sing Yiew said the internationally acclaimed actress would represent the people of Ipoh while senior state executive councillor Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham would represent the state government.

The RM200 million Kinta Riverfront project includes plans for a hotel and service suites. There will also be facilities to promote tourism.


"We want the revival of Ipoh to begin from the Kinta River. It's a tin mining-related concept, because without tin, there would have been no Ipoh," said Ting.


The first phase of the development saw the setting up of a Tin Gallery to display information, pictures and artifacts about Kinta Valley's glory days.


Kiosks, offering a variety of local food and products, were set up along one side of the river from Jalan Lim Bo Seng.


Ting highlighted the Silver Nest Bridge, one of six pedestrian bridges in the project.


On the other side of the river, Morubina will be preparing the Kinta Riverfront Carnival for bazaars, shops, a flea market and a mini theme park.


Ting said the show condo was open for viewing, adding that 60 per cent of the units were already sold.

A 313-room five-star hotel, to be built under the second phase, will have amenities such as a ballroom, business centre, sports facilities and retail space.


"We cater to locals in the first phase. In the next phase, scheduled to start early next year, we will focus on the international crowd," he said.


Morubina will also work with the state government and the city council to upgrade and beautify the D.R. Seenivasagam Park, Ting said.

Thousands at riverfront project launch to see Michelle Yeoh


IPOH: Thousands thronged the launch of the Kinta Riverfront project here mainly to catch a glimpse of international star Datuk Michelle Yeoh.

The arrival of the Ipoh-born former Bond girl sparked off a chain of bright flashes from cameras as Yeoh was escorted to the grand event held on Deepavali eve.

Welcoming her were Morubina Group of Companies managing director Ting Sing Yiew and state senior executive councillor Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham.

Yeoh, who launched the project with Ngeh, lauded the project, adding that she hoped more people would come forward to develop the state together with the Government.

She said the days when tin miners were the main economic force for Perak were long gone and the tourism industry should be the foremost for the growth of the state.


Grand entrance: Yeoh walking to the stage at the launch of the project in Ipoh on the eve of Deepavali. With her are her father Datuk Yeoh Kian Teik (in front of her), mother Datin Janet Yeoh (behind her), and Morubina Group of Companies managing director Ting Sing Yiew (behind Kian Teik).

Yeoh said there should be more proper facilities like five-star hotels to accommodate tourists, adding: “When we bring our friends here, we need proper five-star hotels to accommodate them.

“We can’t just ask them to visit for the day and go off somewhere else. We want them to stay and enjoy because there’s so much to do in Ipoh,” she said.

Ngeh stressed that the state government would welcome local investors who want to bring prosperity to the state.

The RM200mil Kinta Riverfront project, which runs along 1.2km stretch on both sides of the Kinta River, will feature the city’s first five-star hotel and service suites.

Replicas of the world’s famous bridges, bazaars, shops and mini theme parks were also planned in the project, which is expected to be completed within two years.
