GuocoLand Malaysia to develop RM48 billion world-class city in Sepang
01 June 2012 | Last updated at 09:54PM
http://www.nst.com.my/red/guocoland-...sepang-1.89760



GuocoLand Malaysia, the property arm of the Hong Leong Group, will embark on the development of a RM48 billion world-class city – Sepang International City – in Sepang that is envisaged to transform the Greater Kuala Lumpur landscape and place Malaysia on the global map.

The proposed Sepang International City, which spreads across 4,000 acres of prime land in the southern corridor of Selangor, will be one of the largest development projects in Malaysia and is expected to contribute about RM19 billion to Malaysia’s Gross National Income and create about 50,000 jobs by 2020.

The seafront development will include commercial, business, residential and leisure developments, a hub for institutions of higher learning and a large world-class urban park that will be modelled after Central Park in New York City. More than 500,000 people are expected to live and work there.

The project, about 8km from the Sungai Pelek town, is projected to take up to 20 years to be fully developed.

The eco-city is one of the Entry Point Project (EPP) under the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley NKEA that was announced by Prime Minister DatukSri MohdNajibTunRazak at the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) Progress Update briefing recently.

GuocoLand (Malaysia) Bhdmanaging director, YeowWaiSiaw said the proposed Sepang International City would serve as the catalyst in the growth and future development of Sepang and thesurrounding areas.

“Sepang International City is destined to be a model city of the future, not only in Malaysia but in this region. We are very honoured to undertake our second EPP initiative on the back of the award-winning Damansara City which was announced as one of the economic boosters under the ETP in January last year,” he added.

The proposed Sepang International City will be supported by a world-class infrastructure, including direct transport links to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the federal capital and other major points in Greater Kuala Lumpur.


MODEL CITY: Sepang International City is destined to be a model city of the future
Quote:
Sepang International City
Investment: RM12.5 b (2020)
GNI Impact: RM1.34 b (2020)
Jobs created: 4712 (2020)



The timely announcement of the future and growth development of Sepang vis-a-vis Sepang International City will strengthen Malaysia's appeal as a global destination and reinforce its aspiration to be a fully developed nation by 2020.

"GuocoLand Malaysia is indeed very honoured with the development of this ambitious project, its second ETP initiative on the back of the award-winning Damansara City integrated development project in Damansara Heights announced in January 2011."

Mr Yeow Wai Siaw
Managing Director

Green Leaf Retirement Resort, Sepang
‘Club Med’ for oldies
By Aneeta Sundararaj | 10 June 2012 | last updated at 11:30PM
http://www.nst.com.my/life-times/sun...#ixzz21LcrZhxY

It may still be in the concept stage but the award-winning Green Leaf Retirement Resort Community is close to becoming a reality. Aneeta Sundararaj talks to the creator, Raphael Yap

THE four-bedroom apartment in the Green Leaf Retirement Resort Community is stunning. Located in the rapidly growing “Sepang Gold Coast”, the master bedroom looks out into the Straits of Malacca. Use the complementary iPad to surf the Internet or prepare your meals in a state-of-the-art kitchen.

Wait a minute. Something’s amiss. This resort doesn’t exist. Yet, it won the Best Retirement Development — Malaysia and Best Retirement Development — Asia Pacific Region awards at the recent 2012 International Property Awards.

Furthermore, Raphael Yap, 68, managing director of Gracious Homes Sdn Bhd, says that in December, it will compete for the title of overall Best International Retirement Development in London.

The seed of the award-winning idea for this development was planted close to 50 years ago when Yap was in a boarding school in Australia.

During the Easter break, he found cheap accommodation in the Blue Mountains. Upon arrival, he realised that home for the holidays was an extra room in an old folk’s home run by nuns who took in destitute people.

“That first night,” Yap says, “after dinner, there was dead silence. It was depressing. I didn’t know how we were going to last two weeks.”

The next morning, a Russian lady and her daughter arrived and they rented another room. “That evening, the lady decided to do something about the silence. She saw a piano and decided to play some songs. The other residents joined in. From that day, every night, we would all gather around the piano and have fun.”

When the two weeks were up, the nuns said something that stayed with Yap: in all the years of running their nursing home, they’d never seen the residents so happy. He understood then that older people didn’t only need to be looked after physically, their emotional and social wellbeing had to be cared for as well.

When he completed school, Yap chose to pursue a degree in architecture. Thereafter, he was involved in careers as diverse as project management, behavioural science and property development in retail centres, hospitals and destination resorts.

When his mother suffered a stroke, he became privy to another aspect of ageing: “She was an ex-headmistress and very independent,” Yap explains.
“Even though her recovery was complete, she remained frustrated and depressed.”

Pausing briefly, he adds, “Then, there are people my age. They’ve worked all their lives and never developed a hobby. So, when they retire, they don’t know what to do with their time. Also, they think that retirement consists of two stages: you’re either living independently or having nursing care (where they’re immobile). They don’t see the stage in between — where a person is not as mobile as he is but he is not bed-ridden either. This could last between 20 and 30 years. It’s these people I’m looking at. I want them to come and interact with people who have similar interests.”

With a twinkle in his eyes, he says, “I’ve always liked Club-Med. So I’m going to build a Club-Med for Oldies.”

It is not a wonder then that the Green Leaf Retirement Resort Community is the sum total of experiences, knowledge and resources that Yap has gathered over a lifetime.

Although altruism plays a big role in what Yap is doing, this is a project that he will benefit from as well: “There isn’t a place in this part of the world for me to go to. I need it myself. My friends need it. Society needs it.”
It’s certainly tempting.

Puncak Baru mixed development

Lower fee to convert Kg Baru land
By NURADZIMMAH DAIM|20 July 2012 | last updated at 01:11AM
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/centra...-land-1.110248

PRIVILEGES:Owners only need to pay flat rate of RM1,000 to change land status

KAMPUNG Baru landowners would be allowed to redevelop their land by paying a fixed rate to amend the land use category
Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin, while officiating the Kg Baru Development Corporation exhibition, said this was to motivate interested lot owners.

"Instead of paying the normal premium rate, they will only be charged a nominal fee of RM1,000 per lot for them to change the land use category and conditions before redeveloping their lots."

"The other is the remission charge on the premium to be exempted for this purpose. This will help owners to kick-start discussions with the corporation or among themselves in redeveloping Kampung Baru as a modern Malay village," said Raja Nong Chik.

Federal Territories Land and Mines director Datuk Hasim Ismail later explained that under normal circumstances, land owners would need to pay a certain premium to change the land use for redevelopment purposes.

"Land owners have to pay a certain amount calculated on percentage based on what the category change is.

"For instance, if the land is priced at RM700 per 0.09 sq m, and the owners intend to have it changed from residential to commercial, they are required to pay a premium of 25 per cent of the land price per 0.09 sq m.

"So, if a RM175 premium is charged per 0.09 sq m, for 0.4 ha land, the land owner would have to fork out some RM7 million just for the premium charges based on the calculation.

"With this new incentive, the land owners are only required to pay RM1,000 per lot, which can reduce the development cost considerably," he said before handing appointment letters to board and advisory members of the corporation.

It was reported that Kampung Baru, which sits on prime land in Kuala Lumpur's golden triangle, was proposed for redevelopment to give a facelift to the 110-year-old enclave of villages.

One of them is the Puncak Baru mixed development project, which was mooted a few years ago, but had hit a snag due to the ongoing discussion with market traders there.

The joint-venture redevelopment between City Hall and Naza TTDI Sdn Bhd on Lot 3338 in Jalan Raja Muda Musa will include a 43-storey apartment block with facilities including shops, surau, multi-purpose hall, while the other 47-storey block will house office lots.

Putting KL on world finance map
Published: 2012/07/28
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...20055/Article/



THE Kuala Lumpur International Financial District (KLIFD) is set to reshape Malaysia’s financial landscape in the region as well as on the global front, with state-of-the-art infrastructure and technology.

The KLIFD was one of the early Entry Point Projects (EPPs) under Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), a national roadmap to more than double Malaysia’s per capita income to RM48,000 in 2020 while propelling the nation to a high-income economy.

The project will house a physical clustering of the right mix of key international institutions and support services, which is estimated to grow to three times its current size by 2020.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is scheduled to launch the KLIFD on Monday.

The RM26 billion project also looks to deliver on the aspirations for Greater KL to drive rapid growth in parallel with upgrading the city’s liveability ranking to the top 20 in the world.

There will be strong emphasis on quality of life, appealing to the talent needed to support Greater KL.

“We plan KLIFD to be a space like no other, and this is our forte as urban planners. Buildings can always be good, but we want to emphasise that this project will resolve itself in the public realm,” said Jorge Silvetti, principal of Machado and Silvetti Associates, the master planner for KLIFD.

Machado Silvetti and Associates and its Malaysian partner, Akitek Jururancang (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, are the master planners for KLIFD.

The 28.3-hectare project will also spearhead a greener Greater KL with green spaces, sustainable buildings, limited motor vehicle usage, large tranquil parks coupled with rooftop gardens and a solid waste management eco-system.

“The allocation of 30 per cent of the site for greenery might not be very different, but the way we are deploying it, the idea of creating the topography that not only hides cars makes it more beautiful and pedestrian.

Unlike ordinary projects, KLIFD’s core focus is sustainability with guidelines embedded from the master planning stage.

KLIFD’s green areas, for example, are highly functional, not just for beauty but also encourages the creation of community by making public spaces viable, and is vital for its water management system.

With the right ingredients for a world-class city, KLIFD is no doubt expected to attract top global companies to create a catalytic pool of world-class players.

Announced late in 2010, work on the project by 1Malaysia Development Bhd (IMDB) has been on the fast-track, thereby endorsing the importance of the development in transforming the country into a financial hub.

Work on the project literally started on the day the plan was announced, but the journey was not easy given its magnitude. It sparked off not only tremendous interest among financial, construction and investment circles but also criticism.

1MDB chief executive officer Datuk Shahrol Halmi has been very clear from the beginning that the organisation would let its actions speak louder than words.
“We want the development to be on an orderly basis and ensure that there are marketing benefits,” he said.

Preliminary work started on July 1 2012, with the first phase of the project expected to be operational in 2016.

Relocation, which started in early 2011, is now at the tail-end. There were hurdles, but 1MDB fared considerably well after reaching out to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Kuala Lumpur City Hall and political parties to help ease the process, and managed to solve disagreements amicably.

1MDB has successfully relocated most occupants and businesses from the site and the rest are expected to move out soon to make way for construction works.

Shahrol also said: “KLIFD is all about building the nucleus for talent and innovation, which is also in line with the government’s aim under the ETP.

“What KLIFD will create is the clustering effect to promote innovation, as that is what happens when institutions are grouped together, side by side.” Bernama

Kompleks Dayabumi to be refurbished
27 July 2012 | last updated at 01:18AM
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/centra...ished-1.113527

of the refurbishment project. Pic by Yong Chee Choong


REFURBISHMENT work on the 29-year-old Kompleks Dayabumi is being carried out, with a new office tower to be the most notable change.

KLCC Property Holdings Bhd chief executive officer Hashim Wahir said the building, owned by Kompleks Dayabumi Sdn Bhd (a subsidiary of KLCC Property Holdings Bhd), is currently undergoing the second phase of the refurbishment project.

"The construction of a new tower will also be carried out as part of the redevelopment project of the building's annexed City Point (the six-storey office and retail podium)," he said.

City Point is currently being demolished to accommodate the tower construction.

"We are in the midst of discussions with a potential anchor tenant to occupy the office lots there.

"However, details of the tower and construction period can only be revealed after we finalise the terms with the anchor tenant, expected by mid next year," said Hashim after attending the group annual general meeting recently.

KLCC Property Holdings Bhd chairman Krishnan C.K. Menon who was also present said the details still need to be worked out as the potential tenant has its own specifications of what is required in the lots.

"We have to also take into account its heritage value and architecture," said Krishnan.

In the meantime, said Hashim, second phase of the renovation work is being done at the corporate lobby of the 36-storey building including the lifts, while the earlier phase includes transforming the look at the common lobby.

He said half of the occupants and visitors utilise public transport to get to the complex, including KL KTM Komuter whose station is located next to the building and light-rail transit (LRT) whose Pasar Seni station is across the road.

"A pedestrian bridge from the complex to LRT station was built while it was already accessible from the Komuter station," Hashim said, adding that the current occupancy rate of the existing lots is 90 per cent.

"Nevertheless, we are adding more car park lots based on specifications by the authorities (City Hall) as we are adding a new tower.

"There are currently about 1,700 parking lots. In the process, we have also relocated some of the food and beverage operators to accommodate the refurbishment work," he said, refusing to divulge details of the overall cost for the refurbishment work.

Thursday, June 07, 2012 - 16:06
http://www.mmail.com.my/story/everly...ning-putrajaya



GREEN RATING: Artist impression of the Everly Putrajaya,
which is being positioned as a 3-star hotel with 4-star facility


PUTRAJAYA: A new hotel is scheduled to open in Putrajaya in November under the “The Everly” brand, following the signing of a management agreement between Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd’s wholly-owned subsidiary Indah Putrajaya Sdn Bhd and Value Hospitality Ltd.

Value Hospitality will have the right to manage and operate the hotel for 10 years with an option for further extension.

The Everly Putrajaya is connected to Alamanda Shopping and once completed, it will be part of a larger mixed development comprising retail, hotel and office blocks at Precinct 1.

The hotel boasts 382 guest rooms, 1,000-seat banquet hall, eight meeting rooms, coffee house, Cafe Lounge, swimming pool as well as executive and air crew lounges.

A fitness centre and spa are well into the planning stage and are scheduled to be open for business towards the end of the first year of operation.

Putjaya Holdings chief executive officer Datuk Azlan Abdul Karim said: “Putrajaya Holdings is fulfilling a need for a business hotel in Putrajaya that will cater to the business needs of the population as well as tourists to the city.

“We are building a 3-star hotel with 4-star facility, that is a chic stay-away from home and yet provide a luxurious lifestyle that is affordable and practical.”

He added that the hotel will become the second development in 2012 to be rated as a green building, in line with Putrajaya Holdings’ commitment to transform the built environment by reducing negative environmental impact through sustainable green building design and practices.

Port Klang Authority teams up with Lagenda Erajuta in RM500mil 16-acre project
By SHARIDAN M. ALI Thursday July 12, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=202

PORT KLANG: Port Klang Authority (PKA) is teaming up with a developer, Lagenda Erajuta Sdn Bhd, to jointly develop its 16 acres in Klang into a landmark mix-commercial development dubbed 1Gateway Klang worth RM500mil.

Official consent has been received from the Public Private Partnership Unit of the Prime Minister's Department for the commencement of construction work. The landowner of this project is PKA.

PKA chairman Datuk Dr Teh Kim Poo said at a press conference that the project had already started its groundwork and would be completed in five years.

“But I foresee the project to be completed earlier than expected as they had already started work since we already received approval for the building plan from the Klang Municipal Council.

“The project is expected to be a landmark development in Klang, being strategically located along Persiaran Raja Muda Musa and Lebuh Turi which includes two hotel towers, a large shopping mall and offices.

THE landscape of Shah Alam has changed greatly over the years. Where once it was noted for its rubber and oil palm estates, these days, the state capital of Selangor is bustling with development.

With a population of over half a million, Shah Alam is reamking itself, transforming from an industrial area to an iconic city.

i-City, a 29ha ICT-based urban development undertaken by I-Bhd, is among some of the developments that have sprung up in recent years and changed the horizon of Shah Alam.

The freehold site of the development, identified as one of the three growth centres in Shah Alam, is located along the Federal Highway in Section 7, Shah Alam in Selangor.

The other two growth centres are Vision City, developed by Sime Darby Bhd and SP Setia Bhd’s Setia Alam.

MCT executive director Danny Goh calls One-City the jewel in MCT’s crown. The 77-acre integrated commercial development located in USJ has an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM3.6bil.

“We want to be a landmark,” Goh said of MCT’s ambition.

PKNS woos foreign investors for swap deal
Mar 20, 2012
http://www.iproperty.com.my/news/507...-for-swap-deal

KUALA LUMPUR: The Selangor State Development Corp (PKNS) will embark on an asset swap deal with foreign property investors and developers to ease its cash flow requirements.

PKNS general manager Othman Omar said the corporation has received offers from the investors from Hong Kong, China and Singapore who are keen to undertake some form of construction within its new developments in exchange for one or two towers.

The business development division of PKNS has announced RM14 billion worth of new projects in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, a bulk of which are urban regeneration and reverse privatisation developments in the Klang Valley.

In addition to that, PKNS is also talking to foreign private institutions, asset management companies and hotel operators to buy en-bloc some of its properties or lease them long term.

"We want to work with firms like CIMB or Maple Tree for this purpose. We are talking to many parties and hope some deals will materialise this year," Othman told Business Times.

Othman said the investors are interested to buy Grade A office buildings, residences, retail and hotels.

New projects by PKNS' business development division include Datum Jelatek, a RM900 million urban regeneration project in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, involving four residential towers, offices and a retail complex.

Othman said an international investment firm has offered to buy two of the residential towers at around RM800 per sq ft each.

He said PKNS has also received offers from the investors to buy several properties at its RM3 billion Datum [email protected] PJ West project, located nearby Western Digital, starting from RM550 psf.

The project will feature five residential towers, two office buildings, a five-star hotel, a mall and a transportation hub.

Othman said some of its other projects like the RM1.8 billion Datum Sports City project in Kelana Jaya; PJ Sentral Garden City, a joint-venture redevelopment with Nusa Gapurna and the Employees Provident Fund; Datum PJ @ Section 14; and Selangor Science Park 2 in Cyberjaya have also garnered some foreign interest.

He said PKNS will be adding another RM6 billion worth of new projects by the end of this year, in addition to the RM14 billion that was already announced.
