MUAR, May 28 (Bernama) -- 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) will be allowed to develop the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) base in Sungai Besi into a commercial centre on the condition that it completes the construction of the new military air base in Sendayan, Negeri Sembilan.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said 1MDB needed to build the runway, terminal building, control tower and other facilities.

"According to our understanding, 1MDB must first build the new air base, then only they'll be allowed to develop the site in Sungai Besi," he told reporters after opening the Bakri Umno divisional meeting here Saturday.

To a question, Ahmad Zahid said the project in Sendayan would be completed within five years.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Saturday named Sendayan, located 12km from Seremban, as a new base for the RMAF, replacing the one in Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur.

Sungai Besi base to be relocated to Sendayan
2011/05/28 By Patrick Sennyah
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/4seyan2/Article/

GEMAS: The Royal Malaysian Air Force base in Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur, will be relocated to Sendayan in Negri Sembilan.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who made the announcement yesterday, declined to elaborate but said that further details on the relocation would be given later.

Sendayan is about 15km from Seremban. There had been plans for the site to be made a Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) for AirAsia, but the plans were shelved.

Najib was speaking to reporters after launching the Community Rehabilitation Centre in Kem Syed Sirajuddin here.

Air Force chief Tan Sri Rodzali Daud had earlier said the air force was prepared to relocate if the government wanted to turn the Sungai Besi base into a commercial hub.

He said if instructed to move, all assets, including the headquarters and aircraft which were at the base, would be moved to the Subang Air Force base, or any other suitable location.

"We have no objections, but hope the relocation will provide us with better and modern infrastructure."

The Sungai Besi air force base was the first airport in the country to be given international status on Aug 1, 1956, by the late Tunku Abdul Rahman, the nation's first prime minister.

Earlier in his speech, Najib said the government would enter into more "unique partnerships" in future with the aim of reducing manpower and costs, as well as maximising the use of existing assets to generate income.

He said it was time for the government to think creatively and find solutions for social, economical and political problems.

"We cannot think conventionally anymore. If in the past we wanted to reduce the crime rate, we would have immediately asked for an additional budget, increased manpower and more prisons.

"However, now under the Blue Ocean Strategy way of thinking, we need to find ways to reduce crime using the lowest budget possible. This is what we are doing today with our community rehabilitation centres being set up in army camps."

Najib said the cost of rehabilitating 300 prisoners at the camp was only RM7 million a year compared with caring for 400 prisoners in a jail which cost about RM50 million a year.

"The community rehabilitation centres are a clear example of how successful a 'unique partnership' can be. To make these centres work, the Home, Defence and Agriculture and Agro-based Industry ministries have to work together."

Najib said phase two of the programme would be extended to the rehabilitation of drug addicts and would involve the National Anti-Drug Agency.

The community rehabilitation centre at Kem Syed Sirajuddin is the second after the prime minister launched the first one at Kem Mahkota Kluang in Johor on March 26.

"During my walk around the camp, I spoke to six prisoners and their families and they were all thankful to the government for coming up with such a programme.

"Here, they are able to see their families regularly, learn new skills and even earn up to RM200 per month, compared with about RM30 per month in jail."

He said the government would discuss with Tabung Ekonomi Kumpulan Usaha Niaga (Tekun) on the possibility of giving these prisoners a small loan to venture into the agriculture sector on their release.

Three other community rehabilitation centres would be set up in Kem Desa Pahlawan, Kelantan; Kem Sultan Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah, Alor Star; and Kem Batu 10, 4th mechanised brigade, Kuantan, Pahang.

In Muar, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera and 1Malaysia Development Bhd were the developers of the new RMAF base in Sendayan.

"Once the Sendayan base is completed, the developers will turn the Sungai Besi base into a commercial hub, which will include low-cost housing for the lower-income group," Zahid told the media after officiating the Bakri Umno division meeting here yesterday. Also present was Bakri Umno chief Datuk Saipol Bahri Suib.

He said the developers would build all the facilities at the new base, which is as big as the Sungai Besi base, including the runway, control tower and hangars.

"We will only move into the new base once all the facilities and equipment are in place. The moving process is expected to take 60 months to complete," said Zahid.

Asked if the ministry had a deadline for the developers to complete the new base, he said the ministry had a timeline but declined to elaborate.

Sendayan is new site for air force base

New rehab centre: Najib meeting some of the inmates at the Community
Rehabilitation Centre at Kem Syed Sirajuddin in Gemas.


GEMAS: A new air force base will be built in Sendayan near Seremban to replace the Sungai Besi base which is expected to cease operations by the end of the year.

It is understood that the new base will be located close to the low-cost carrier terminal and the KL International Airport in Sepang.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said details of the project would be announced in due course.

“The air base will be built in Sendayan. We have agreed on this. Other details will follow suit,” he told reporters after opening the Community Rehabilitation Centre at Kem Syed Sirajuddin near here.

The Government had awarded the Sungai Besi airport site to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) last year to be developed into a multi-billion ringgit commercial project which will include residential, commercial and recreational areas as well as a library, public park and square.

1MDB, which is a wholly-owned government agency, has also obtained approval from the Federal Government to redevelop about 160ha of the Sungai Besi Airport site into a Bandar Malaysia project.


Its main partner in the project will be the Qatar Investment Authority.

In Muar, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the building and transferring of facilities from the Sungai Besi air force base to Sendayan would take at least 60 months.

He added that the cost of the project would be fully undertaken by the development company, which planned to develop a major commercial and residential centre on the old air base site.

All facilities available at the old air base will also be replaced with new and modern facilities.

Dr Ahmad Zahid said the developers would have to complete building the new air base before they could carry out the proposed developments at the Sungai Besi air base.

Bandar Malaysia
The urban redevelopment of the old airport in Sungai Besi is designed to support Greater KL as a new engine of growth. Bandar Malaysia will promote liveability as a distinctive urban character for Greater KL as it competes for talent, wealth and investments in the global arena.

1MDB to turn Sungai Besi airport land into Bandar Malaysia
June 15, 2011
http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/m...ndar-malaysia/


An aerial view of the Sungai Besi airport land. — skyscrapercity.com pic

KUALA LUMPUR, June 15 — Government owned strategic developer 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) signed several agreements today to pave the way for the old Sungai Besi airport land to be transformed into Bandar Malaysia.

According to a statement by 1MDB, Bandar Malaysia will have several attractive elements to further strengthen Kuala Lumpur’s global competitiveness as cities compete to attract international investors and businesses.

Among the agreements, 1MDB, the master developer for Bandar Malaysia, signed sales and purchase agreements with the federal land commissioner to take over ownership of the Sungai Besi airport land, and also with the Negeri Sembilan state government to acquire land in Sendayan as the replacement site for the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) base.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop witnessed the signing at the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department here.

Bandar Malaysia aims to promote liveability as a distinctive character of Greater Kuala Lumpur, said 1MDB.

The company added that Bandar Malaysia would be a mixed development filled with liveable spaces for work/life balance, such as open green spaces and a people’s avenue as well as higher learning institutions.

In 1956, Sungai Besi served as the nation’s first international airport before being turned into a base for RMAF.

Shahrol Halmi
Chief executive officer
1Malaysia Development Bhd



AS chief executive officer of 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), Shahrol Halmi is very much in the driver's seat to steer initiatives for the long-term sustainable economic development and promote inflow of foreign direct investment to Malaysia.

With 1MDB tasked by the Government to act as the main vehicle to channel much-needed foreign direct investment into the economy, Shahrol is literally in the frontline to formulate and seal strategic global partnerships to promote new high-impact growth for the country.

The graduate of Stanford University, who was previously with Accenture Malaysia, is a specialist in value creation with over 13 years' experience in implementing large projects involving government-linked companies (GLCs) as well as financial institutions.

His achievements include a multi-year transformation programme at the Employees Provident Fund as well as planning and executing the merger of Sime Darby Bhd, Kumpulan Guthrie Bhd and Golden Hope Plantations Bhd to form the then Synergy Drive (now known as Sime Darby), the world's biggest plantation company.

At the helm of 1MDB, Shahrol's principal responsibility is to bring in foreign direct investment and catalyse projects that have high multiplier effects to steer Malaysia into a high economic growth path.

One of the most watched out projects will be the urban redevelopment of the old airport in Sungai Besi to support the Government's plan for Greater Kuala Lumpur to be a new engine of growth.

Named as Bandar Malaysia by 1MDB, the project will focus on liveability as a distinctive urban character for Greater KL as it competes for talent, wealth and investments in the global arena.

Another much-touted project by 1MDB is the Kuala Lumpur International Financial District (KLIFD) in the heart of the city. KLIFD will be a dedicated international financial district promoting Malaysia as an international and Islamic financial centre.

The 34ha real estate development will be an iconic destination and is intended to tightly cluster important banking and financial entities for a new growth momentum. In December 2009, 1MDB announced it would be investing US$1bil in a joint-venture company with Petro-Saudi International Limited. The US$2.5bil joint venture is to spearhead the flow of foreign direct investments from the Middle East and make strategic investments in high-impact projects in Malaysia.

This was followed by a joint agreement with State Grid Corp of China to set up hydro power plants and a massive aluminium smelter in Sarawak, which could involve investments worth US$6bil-US$8bil.

1MDB is also working with Masdar, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi's Mubadala Development Company focused on renewable energy and sustainability, to jointly explore clean technology projects and investments, including the possibility of building Malaysia's first carbon-neutral city. - By ANGIE NG

Part of Sg Besi airport land allocated for property development: PM
By ISABELLE LAI Published: Thursday June 23, 2011 MYT 4:09:00 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=643

PETALING JAYA: A portion of the old Sungai Besi airport land will be allocated for property development under the Government's quality housing scheme, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said the land, which will be developed by 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) after the airport base closes down, was “very convenient” and “a large area”.

“A certain portion of that land will be used for this concept of quality affordable housing for the rakyat,” he said during a live interview with Chinese-language radio station One FM on Thursday.

The land had earlier been awarded to 1MDB to be developed into Bandar Malaysia, which will include residential, commercial and recreational areas.

Najib said the scheme, dubbed Perumahan Rakyat 1Malaysia (Prima), would offer homes at below market value as part of a public-private partnership to provide affordable housing.

He said big property companies including Sime Darby, SP Setia and Putrajaya Corporation had been invited to participate in the programme. However, he stressed, the development would be done under a social business model.

“The developers are not there to make money but to provide quality affordable housing.

“They have to present their business model and costing and we will do an analysis to make sure they don't make but don't lose money either,” he said.

Najib also encouraged home buyers to leverage on the recent 100% financing policy initiated through the Government's My First Home scheme launched in March.

Under this scheme, Malaysians aged 35 and below who meet requirements are eligible to purchase a house priced no higher than RM220,000 with 100% financing.

To ensure transparency in housing unit allocation, Najib said a special unit under the Prime Minister's Department would be set up to determine who would get the homes.

“We want to show that even the distribution is handled fairly and in a transparent manner, so people who deserve houses get houses,” he said, adding that condominium units might be included as well.

RMAF to close Sungai Besi air base from Nov 30
2011/08/09
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/R...Nov31/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is set to close the Sungai Besi air base from Nov 30 and it will only be operational for helicopters.

RMAF chief Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said aircraft operations would be relocated to other RMAF airports and air bases.

This is to enable 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) to start preparing the groundwork for the 1Malaysia people's housing project, he told reporters after presenting a RM2,500 cheque to runner Suwaibah Muhammad Nasir, who will take part in a gruelling run across the Sahara desert, at the RMAF Museum here today.

Government-owned strategic development company, 1Malaysia Development Bhd(1MDB), the master developer for Bandar Malaysia, signed the sale and purchase agreement with the federal land commissioner for the transfer of 196.6ha of Sungai Besi airport land to 1MDB in June.

On the RMAF museum and mosque, Rodzali said the RMAF wished to keep the assets even after the Sungai Besi air base cease operation.

"However, we are still in discussion with 1MDB on relocation of assets, infrastructure and existing facilities from the air base such as logistics, squadrons, accommodation and officer mess to new bases in Subang and Sendayan as well as Kuantan.

"What is most important at the moment is to create and build a command and control system at the new base in Subang to enable the operations here to be transferred there," he said, adding that he expected the entire development and transfer would be completed in 2016.

He said the RMAF Subang air base would operate as the command and control centre while the proposed Sendayan air base would be for flight training and Kuantan would house other assets.

On the development of the Sendayan and Subang air bases, he said a meeting would be held on Feb 14 next year on the proposed Sendayan air base design and to put the Subang air base execution on fast track.

Meanwhile, Suwaibah, who will take part in a gruelling run across the Sahara desert to raise funds for a young acid attack victim, said she expected an extreme weather condition with temperature ranging from 30 to 50 Celsius during the day, which could cause muscle spasm, and sandstorm scare.

To prepare for her feat, Suwaibah, a former RMAF volunteer reserve, will begin her 1,111km run on Nov 11. -- BERNAMA

Country's first international airport
2011/09/04
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/13adrsfc3/Article/

THE Sungai Besi air base, popularly known as Sempang among aviators, had from 1952 to 1965 served as the nation's international airport before the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang began operations.

Sempang's closure follows the decision by the government to relocate the air force base to Sendayan in Negri Sembilan.

The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) will stop all air traffic control at Sempang's aerodrome by December, thus forcing the Royal Malaysian Air Force, the Royal Malaysian Police Air Unit and the Royal Selangor Flying Club to shift.

The RMAF is preparing to shift part of its operations at Sungai Besi to Subang, Kuantan and Bukit Jugra near Banting, while awaiting for its new facility at Sendayan to be built in five years.

RMAF chief Gen Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said the Defence Ministry had been notified to move its operations out of the base by December.

The RMAF, he said, had already moved its primary fixed and rotary wing operations to Subang, including that of 10 Squadron, comprising Nuri and Blackhawk executive helicopters.

DCA director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said the department was awaiting the outcome of negotiations with the concerned parties before making a final decision.

"However, should there be a request from the air operators to extend the use of the runway and its airspace, we will consider it."

In June, government-owned strategic development company 1Malaysia Development Bhd, the master developer of the multibillion ringgit upscale "Greater KL", signed the agreement with the federal land commissioner for the transfer of 196.6ha of the Sungai Besi air base land.

1MDB is part of a consortium that includes the Armed Forces Superannuation Fund which is developing the sprawling base.

It is learnt that IMDB plans to establish its project development centre at the base once the runway is closed.

Other facilities at the base include the RMAF's logistics headquarters and No. 1 air division, bunkered-air defence operations centre, an army artillery unit, an equestrian club, a shooting range, the RMAF Museum, the Institute of Aviation Medicine, bungalow quarters for senior officers and the grave of the founder of Kuala Lumpur, "Kapitan Cina" Yap Ah Loy.

Sempang, originally an airstrip before World War 2, was the country's first international airport, serving as the main air link from 1952 to 1965, before Subang Airport was opened.

From Sempang to Subang and now, Sepang... all starts with 'S' and ends with 'ang'... how coincident. That's how we want to find the future site of KL airport

I hope the development undertaken by 1MDB would also include the preservation of the bunkered air defence operation center, RMAF Museum and the Yap Ah Loy grave. They can be promoted as new additions to KL's heritage tourism attractions
