not really. you may have underestimate that money can buy expertise. big players (usually on good term with govt.) r financially solid, manage to secure construction loan easily and have a large network of suppliers and subcons prepare to provide support and hence securing project ensure. smaller firms ll scale back operation, take lesser jobs and wait until the next tide.

James, any chance to post the new design?

The Brunei Investment Agency will develop the 40-storey five-star hotel, which may cost about RM360 million, industry executives estimated, if it sticks to a plan to have 450 rooms

THE Brunei Investment Agency, one of the world's largest sovereign wealth funds with assets of US$30 billion (RM97.2 billion), has finally been given the green light to develop the Grand Hyatt hotel on Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur.

Business Times was informed that the proposal, which was submitted in 2005, was approved in late November 2007, after several amendments to its original proposal had been made.

Brunei Investment Agency official Suharafadzil Yusof when contacted said the project had been approved.

However, he declined to say when work will start or when the project will be ready. Apart from a 40-storey five-star hotel, the building will also house service apartments and offices.

The hotel alone may cost about RM360 million, industry executives estimated, if it sticks to a plan to have 450 rooms.

There was also no response to Business Times' query from Hyatt International's office in Singapore.

Industry experts say that if construction begins immediately, it could take anything between 30 and 36 months to be ready.

This means that the hotel may be operational in 2010.

In a press release put out in 2007, it was reported that international destination-design firm Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo (WATG) served as the design architect, together with local firm GDP Architects.

WATG did not reply to e-mail queries.

The 2007 release said that the hotel lobby is located at the top of the building and guests at the lobby will have an impressive 360-degree view of downtown KL.

The project is slated to open to the public in December 2010, the statement said.

Earlier plans to open a Grand Hyatt Duta came to an end as the project was never completed.

The Hyatt Group in 1994 gave the contract to develop the RM570 million Grand Hyatt Duta to Kuala Lumpur Landmark Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Olympia Industries Bhd.

Mycom Bhd, the holding company of Olympia, then teamed up with Kuala Lumpur Landmark to develop a 52-storey building to house its headquarters and the hotel.

However, construction was halted in July 1998, when the group encountered financial difficulties during the 1997/1998 economic downturn.

The Grand Hyatt Duta was to have been completed in 1997. Until today, the hotel at the corner of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang remains partly completed. The Hyatt Group is no longer associated with the project.

The Hyatt Group also operates the Hyatt Regency Kinabalu, Hyatt Regency Johor Baru and Hyatt Regency Kuantan Resort.
Big Brunei investment in Malaysia

One for the album: Najib meeting Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah (centre) before
dinner at Istana Nurul Iman in Brunei on Wednesday. With them are

Rosmah Mansor and Pengiran Isteri Azrinaz Mazhar Hakim. – Bernama


BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: The Brunei Investment Agency, which is the financial and investment arm of the oil-rich sultanate, will take up a big stake in the construction of a five-star hotel in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle.

The agency was also eyeing Johor, Sabah and Sarawak for investment opportunities following talks between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.

Najib said yesterday Brunei’s decision to continue to invest heavily in Malaysia was important as it reflected the confidence that the sultanate had in Malaysia.

Describing the five-star hotel project as an “iconic investment”, Najib said he had also briefed Sultan Hassanal on the various opportunities to be found in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy project, in the Sabah regio-nal development corridor and in the Iskandar Development Region.

“The Sultan is very keen to explore new opportunities for mutual collaboration in these states. Malaysia and Brunei are also sorting out a double-taxation agreement and trying to resolve land and maritime border issues as soon as possible,” he said during a breakfast gathering with Malaysians here.

“For Malaysia, good ties between government-to-government are vital as they are the foundation for mutual prosperity among neighbours,” he said.

Najib said he hoped the private sectors in Malaysia and Brunei could emulate the good ties their governments were developing.

During Najib’s meeting with Sultan Bolkiah on Wednesday night, both leaders spoke at length about finding ways to sort out the double-taxation issues, enhance tourism, trade and settle the maritime and land boundary claims as soon as possible.

At another event, Najib said he wants to emulate his predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and build on his good deeds.

Abdullah, he said, had done a good job in cementing government-to-government and people-to-people relations and he intended to follow up on these.
