Tradewinds plans new set of 'jewels'
By Vasantha Ganesan Published: 2011/02/24
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

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
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...ROP17/Article/



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
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...decen/Article/

[IMG]http://t0.************/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRaseeCMGdmd1GvriQboc2CeUXPRRUt0z2X9BnnPG_HwmpbWeePPA&t=1[/IMG]

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
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1Yjd7nJBO

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
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html



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
car parks.

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

Published: 2012/06/29

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
