UDA to develop Pudu Prison
Monday October 22, 2007


SEGAMAT: The Urban Development Authority (UDA) is developing the site of the Pudu Prison in Kuala Lumpur into a commercial-cum-residential centre.

UDA chairman Datuk Baharum Mohamad said the site had been handed over to UDA in exchange for the construction of a new prison at Sungai Buloh.

He said the Federal Territory land administrator had imposed a RM150mil premium before UDA was allowed to develop the site for commercial purpose.

“We will negotiate with the Federal Territory Land and Mines Department for the premium to be reduced,” he told reporters after hosting a Hari Raya open house at Kampung Pogoh yesterday.

Baharum said UDA was allocating RM15mil to repair the food stalls at the Angsana Plaza Shopping Complex, near Tampoi in Johor Baru to make them more convenient for customers.

He said the food stalls at the shopping complex were popular among visitors, including those from Singapore. – Bernama

UDA to unlock potential of Pudu jail area
By Adeline Paul Raj
October 15 2007
BusinessTimes

The project, currently referred to as the Bukit Bintang Commercial Centre, will have a gross development value of RM2 billion, says UDA general manager of urban development division
PROPERTY developer UDA Holdings Bhd will begin transforming the Pudu Prison area in Kuala Lumpur into a commercial hub next year.

"We have plans to turn the area into a commercial development, which will include retail centres, offices, residences and parks," UDA general manager of urban development division, Nooraini Mohamad Rashidi, told Business Times in an interview.

The development is currently referred to as the Bukit Bintang Commercial Centre, but there will be a name change once it has been completed.

The project, expected to stretch over eight to 10 years, will have a gross development value of RM2 billion, she said.

UDA had agreed to buy the 8.1ha land housing the prison from the government in May 1999.

It was offered the development rights and first right of purchase of the land in exchange for having built the Sungai Buloh Prison.

The group is still in the midst of finalising ownership details.

UDA expects to kick off the project with a residential development comprising affordable apartments.

This will be followed by retail centres and later, offices.

It plans to include some iconic structures as part of the development.

The Pudu Prison, Malaysia's oldest remand centre and built by the British in 1895, closed down in 1996 and was briefly turned into a tourist attraction.

Today, it serves as a detention centre for drug addicts in the city. This is, however, temporary as the Kuala Lumpur City Hall is expected to build new facilities to re-house the addicts next year, Nooraini said.

"We will look at commencing work on the commercial project in 2008," she said, adding that this would begin with demolition works.

Despite the area's prime location, UDA may have an uphill task persuading superstitious Malaysians to buy property on a former prison site where some of the country's most notorious criminals, like Botak Chin, were executed.

UDA, however, is counting on people to have short memories once they see how attractive the area can look and feel once work on it is completed.

"It could be a marketing nightmare. But as in all places, after a while, people will forget," Nooraini said.

UDA has had previous experience in developing prison sites. It has, for example, built the Jerejak Resort & Spa on Penang's Jerejak Island, which used to be a prison.

Nooraini said the plan to develop the Pudu Prison area is part and parcel of UDA's mandate to increase Bumiputera property ownership in urban areas.

The Grand Millennium brand sets new benchmark in luxury travel
23/10/2007

Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc (M&C), one of the world’s fastest-expanding and dynamic hotel companies, introduces its new brand of luxury hotels with the launch of Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur. The five-star Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur is M&C’s flagship property in Malaysia, and the first Grand Millennium hotel in the world.

There are four major brands in the M&C portfolio – the Grand Millennium, Millennium, Copthorne and Kingsgate. Located in major gateways and key cities, the Grand Millennium is the most prestigious and luxurious of the brands, designed for the wellheeled international traveller accustomed to the highest level of service and facilities.

The Millennium brand, comprising upscale and deluxe properties, offers premium accommodation for the savvy business and leisure traveller. Catering to the midmanagement corporate market is the Copthorne brand, while the budget-conscious traveller favours the Kingsgate brand.

In response to the dynamic growth in luxury travel market, the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur will soon be completing a multimillion-dollar (US$) makeover to reflect a contemporarily elegant identity. The hotel is the recipient of numerous international awards, including the Hospitality Asia Platinum Award for Service Excellence, and the Hospitality Asia Platinum Award for Best Executive Club Lounge.

“This is truly a historic occasion for M&C and we are very excited to be able to roll out the Grand Millennium brand, which will deliver a new luxury hotel experience. The Grand Millennium brand aspires to offer unparalleled amenities and impeccable service, where first-class experience is a norm rather than an exception. It is a brand name that is dedicated to the highest standards of luxury,” said Mr Kwek Leng Beng, Chairman of London-listed Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc, of the Kuala Lumpur property.

Strategically located at the heart of the Golden Triangle – the capital city’s premier business, shopping and entertainment district – the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur is within walking distance of major shopping malls and more than 3,500 shops, including the newly-acclaimed Pavilion commercial complex adjacent to the hotel.

“Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur is the strategic choice for our Group’s first Grand Millennium property. With the luxurious enhancements to this iconic hotel’s facilities and its outstanding service culture as the point of difference amidst growing competition, we are confident that the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur will bring luxury hotel accommodation to an entirely new level,” said Mr Michael Sengol, Chief Operating Officer of M&C Hotels plc.

Upon completion of the refurbishment before end of this year, the Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur will feature 468 elegantly transformed guestrooms and suites; grand lobby and reception areas; a tropical-themed outdoor swimming pool; The Executive Club, which offers executive privileges and personalised Butler Service; 15,000 square feet of conference and banqueting space with the services of a dedicated Events Team; a fullyequipped Health Club; and a Spa offering massage therapies and beauty treatments with separate facilities for men and women.

Apart from M&C’s strategy of focussing on actively maximising yield management opportunities, the Group is also carrying out refurbishment works on a number of existing hotels in addition to rolling out more hotels in East Asia, Middle East, Europe and United States. In London, the Millennium & Copthorne Hotels at Chelsea Football Club have undergone a multimillion-pound refurbishment to ensure that this unique destination is the ideal place to stay after “the big match”. In the UAE, the Group will soon unveil the Millennium Towers Dubai Hotel & Apartments. In Asia, the Millennium Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel and Millennium Resort Patong Phuket in Thailand are also slated to open year-end, while the Grand Millennium Beijing and Millennium Chengdu in China will open in 2008.

KL’s 10 Most Expensive Condos



The Troika

Quote:
Foreigners encouraged by relaxed restrictions
October 2007
property-report


Ahead of an exhibition for The Troika in Hong Kong, Darien Bradshaw, Regional Director, International Properties Division for Colliers International, said that prices for the Sir Norman Foster-designed project in KLCC have risen dramatically since its launch. “Prices have doubled since we first sold The Troika in Hong Kong in 2005,” Bradshaw told Property Report, adding that most of the best units, such as those with views of Petronas Towers, have already been sold.

Today, prices for the 172-unit mixed-use development, which is set to be completed by the end of 2009, start from about RM2.25 million or just under S$1 million for standard units, which range from 2,142-3,336 sq ft. The eight penthouses, meanwhile, range from 5,441sqft to a whopping 21,689sqft.

Bradshaw revealed that property investors, with five or more apartments in the region, made up a significant number of the Hong Kong-based buyers of The Troika. “Our buyers are made up of locals, Asian buyers, and expats from the UK, Australia and so on,” he said. “Generally, they’re people with a portfolio of properties across Asia, including many investment bankers, and they’re looking for buy the best projects in each market.”

The government’s relaxation of restrictions on foreign buyers has helped spur renewed interest from foreign markets. Since December 20, 2006, foreigners have been allowed to buy properties above RM250,000 without seeking approval from the Foreign Investment Committee, and can buy more than one unit. The real capital gains tax for property investors was then abolished on April 1.

“The scrapping of the capital gains tax and various restrictions have been a huge boost for new sales. When I look at Malaysia now, I compare it to the UK and New Zealand for transparency and ease of buying property, with low acquisition disposal costs,” Bradshaw said.

“Malaysia also offers the ability for a foreigner to secure loans of up to 70-80%, which is something you can’t do easily in Thailand, for example. There’s also an active second-hand market, which is not as advanced as Singapore or Hong Kong, but it is there.”

KLCC is fast becoming the city’s elite residential area, with high-profile condos bordering the park also including The Binjai, The Four Seasons, One KL and The Marc. As such, Bradshaw believes The Troika presents an interesting opportunity for buyers.

“The Troika should hold in value because of both its iconic design by Foster and Partners but also because of its prime location on the edge of KLCC Park, with great views of the park and the Petronas Towers,” he said. “I actually think The Troika will raise the value of the entire area, as the prices of nearby residences with a view of The Troika will go up in value, just as if they have a view of the Petronas Towers.”

The 2.13-acre project by Bandar Raya Development Berhad (BRDB) features three towers linked by 24-storey skybridges: the 38-storey Tower A (60 units), the 44-storey Tower B (34 units) and the 50-storey Tower C (78 units). Tower B’s residential units are from level 25 upwards, as the lower levels will feature boutique offices, shops and restaurants. Facilities include a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, wading pool, gym, games room, outdoor recreation area, barbeque area and courtyard.

Abandoned RM1.3bil Plaza Rakyat project to be revived
By JACK WONG
TheStar Saturday 27 October 2007

79 & 59 Storey

KUCHING: The proposed RM1.3bil Plaza Rakyat project in Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, which has been abandoned for a decade, will be revived and completed in five years.

Plaza Rakyat Sdn Bhd chairman Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing said construction work on the RM420mil Phase One project, which comprises a seven-storey shopping complex and other amenities, was expected to begin in two weeks.

The company will jointly undertake the project, which involves the redevelopment of 16.2 acres with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

Global Upline Sdn Bhd, of which Ting is the adviser, will be involved in the construction work. The company has built several major airports in Sarawak and Sabah.

Ting said Plaza Rakyat would sign a new contract with DBKL following the approval by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to change certain conditions of the original contract. One of the new terms allows outright sale of the properties in Plaza Rakyat to interested parties.

“New funding for the project is in place,” Ting told reporters here yesterday.

The shopping complex would have a net lettable area of over 1mil sq ft. Phase One will also house the new Pudu terminal for 80 buses and a taxi station for 250 vehicles, both in the basement area. The six-storey car park, which has 3,500 parking lots, has been completed.

“The Phase One project will be fully completed and operational in 30 months,” he added.

Ting, also chairman of Wembly Industries Holdings Bhd (which owns Plaza Rakyat Sdn Bhd), said other main components of Plaza Rakyat were a proposed 79-storey office tower cum apartments, a 59-storey serviced apartment, a 450-room four-star hotel and a 150-room budget hotel.

He said the office tower was one of the federal capital ‘s tallest buildings with reimposed concrete structure.

We expect the entire project to be completed in five years. When fully operational, Plaza Rakyat will change the landscape of the Puda area.”

Ting said the completion of Plaza Rakyat would bring income to Wembly Industries, which was now under trading suspension.

“Wembly Industries will be restructured and this will benefit the shareholders,” he added.

Ekran Bhd, of which Ting is also chairman, owns a 32% stake in Wembly Industries.

CIMB-Mapletree buying YNH condo, say sources
Monday October 29, 2007
By DAVID TAN





A scale model of the Ceriaan Kiara project in Mont' Kiara.

CIMB-Mapletree has agreed to purchase one block of YNH Property Bhd's Ceriaan Kiara project in Mont' Kiara, according to sources close to the deal.

The project comprises two luxurious condominium blocks, each with 119 units, located opposite the Garden International School.

StarBiz learned that the acquisition had an estimated gross sales value of over RM60mil. It is understood that there would also be other deals with CIMB-Mapletree soon.

YNH has sold over 85% of the units in the other block.

It is learnt that the capital value of similar properties in the Mont' Kiara area has risen about 20% from a year ago. At present, the selling price is RM450 to RM600 per sq ft.

The Ceriaan Kiara project, currently under construction, is about 30% completed and will be fully finished in 2009.

CIMB-Mapletree is a joint venture between CIMB Real Estate Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of CIMB Group, and Mapletree Capital Management Pte Ltd, a wholly owned unit of Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd.

Mapletree Investments, in turn, is wholly owned by Temasek Holdings (Private) Ltd.

Recently, YNH Property appointed Fraser Hospitality Pte Ltd to manage its RM300mil Lot 163 Suites project in Jalan Perak, Kuala Lumpur.

Fraser Hospitality, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fraser & Neave Ltd, is an international serviced residence management company providing consultancy and other services.

Strong first quarter results for Sunrise
Wednesday October 24, 2007
TheStar


KUALA LUMPUR: Sunrise Bhd said yesterday net profit in the first quarter to September surged 260% from a year ago to RM75.17mil as ongoing developments continued to bring in strong sales.

Revenue stood at RM220.62mil, up 114% from a year earlier.

First-quarter net profit was also lifted by proceeds from the sale of retail units and car park lots in Plaza Mont' Kiara in Kuala Lumpur.

“The board is confident of the company's prospects in the coming financial year,” Sunrise said in notes accompanying its results.

Substantial unbilled sales and more new launches would sustain growth, it said.

The group's unbilled sales stood at RM1.3bil at end-September.

It will launch 11 Mont' Kiara, a luxurious condominium development comprising 338 units, and Residence, an exclusive bungalow development, by June next year. – Thomson Financial
