i find it very amusing that so many people are worried about tsunamis. before the tsunami hit Penang. i've never heard of anyone talking about tsunamis.

just think about this:
1) how often does an earthquake large enough to trigger a tsunami will occur?
2) how often does that strong earthquake have the right orientation to actually trigger a tsunami?
3) how often will it occur in an area that will affect Penang? (penang is not in an earthquake zone. what happened on December 26 2004 is a ricochet effect and is very rare)

so, i'll worry about my safety or whether my money is well spent rather than tsunamis that might happen again in maybe another 200000 years.

1. INTRODUCTION

The Board of Directors of EOPD (‘Board'') wishes to announce that EOPP, a 70% owned subsidiary of EOPD, has entered into a conditional Agreement to Lease with Tesco on 7 March 2007 for the proposed lease of the Land together with the Building (as defined hereunder) to Tesco (‘Lease'').


2. INFORMATION ON EOPP

EOPP was incorporated on 10 August 1989 in Malaysia under the Companies Act 1965 as a private limited company under the name of Kamunting Holdings Sdn Bhd. Subsequently, on 17 November 2003, Kamunting Holdings Sdn Bhd changed its name to its present name. It is principally involved in property development. It is currently developing a mixed waterfront property development project in Pulau Pinang, namely the Seri Tanjung Pinang Project located at Tanjung Tokong, approximately 5km northwest of Georgetown . The development project involves the reclamation of 980 acres, out of which approximately 240 acres have already been reclaimed under Phase 1. Its maiden launch of residential units took place in December 2005.


3. INFORMATION ON TESCO

Tesco was incorporated in Malaysia under the Companies Act 1965 on 29 November 2001 as a private limited company. It is principally involved in the business of operating retail outlets.

4. DETAILS OF THE LEASE

4.1 Information on the Land

The Land is a leasehold land held under the document of title H.S.(D) 13097 PT 694, Bandar Tanjong Pinang Sek. 1, Daerah Timor Laut, Negeri Pulau Pinang and measuring approximately 303,162 square feet or 6.96 acres. The Land is subject to the category of land use ‘Building''. Approval has been granted by the relevant authority to convert the tenure of the Land from leasehold to freehold.

EOPP will be constructing a hypermarket building on the Land with gross built-up area measuring approximately 23,400 square metres with not less than 800 surrounding car park bays (‘Building'').


4.2 Conditions Precedent

The Agreement to Lease is conditional upon the following conditions precedent being fulfilled within twelve (12) months from the date of the Agreement to Lease or such longer period as the parties may extend by mutual consent:-
(i) The Lessee obtaining the approval of the Foreign Investment Committee for the Lease and the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs for the development of a hypermarket building on the Land;

(iii) The Lessee obtaining the approvals from the relevant authorities of the State of Pulau Pinang for the Lease; and

The presence of Tesco, a prominent hypermarket operator, will enhance the value of the Seri Tanjung Pinang township.

Seafront development planned in Penang

IN KUALA LUMPUR Business Times - 19 Jun 2007

TRANSFORMED over the years from a laidback tranquil island into a city dotted with ever-increasing high-rise condos, Penang is set for yet another transformation. A nearly 40-ha integrated seafront development project to the north-east could well turn out to be the island's new pulse when completed, its promoters say.

Sri Tanjung Pinang, Penang's biggest seafront development, will involve reclaiming not only the land on the headland along Tanjong Takong but also a cluster of man-made islands adjoining the headland linked by a series of bridges.

Developer E&O intends to build about 3,000 units comprising roughly a third of landed, condominium and low to medium-cost units over the two-phase 'multi-island and headland' development spanning 15 years.

Nearly a third of the landed units have been launched under the current Phase 1 headland development, which covers some 100-ha and whose estimated gross development value is RM2.6 billion (S$1.16 billion). About 85 per cent has already been sold.

'A lot of money has been spent on reclamation, but cost isn't something I'd like to get into,' said E&O director of marketing & sales K C Chong.

What Mr Chong did want to go into greater detail during a media familiarisation trip to the project site earlier this month was the project's potential. Malaysian real estate is still some of the region's cheapest and the exemption of real property gains tax has spurred interest.

Despite the scarcity of land in Penang - seafront developments usually sell at a premium - Sri Tanjung Pinang is still affordable, Mr Chong said.A freehold two-and-a-half storey courtyard terrace home of some 3,345 sq ft is priced from about RM800,000 onwards. Prices have appreciated since last year when they were launched at around the RM750,000 mark.

The majority of buyers are from Penang and Kuala Lumpur. Twenty per cent of purchasers are foreigners from Singapore, Scandinavia, Britain and Australia, some of whom intend to settle down in Penang under the Malaysia My Second Home programme.

Mr Chong said the open-air courtyard concept, tropical architecture and 11-ft high ceilings are attractive propositions to foreign buyers. Designed by international architects Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo, Sri Tanjung Pinang has many features which take into account the expectations of international investors.

Commercial blocks, retail precincts, schools, parks, a marina and other social amenities form the rest of Phase 1. But perhaps the greater excitement lies in Phase 2 where three to four man-made islands of 300ha would be reclaimed. The current intention is to build high-rise commercial to low-density residential units, a 5-star hotel and boutique resort, a championship golf course, marina beach clubs and seafront residences with private berths.

'The farthest house from the water stage is less than 800 metres,' observed the company's project director (planning and business development) Mohd Razeek Hussain, who walked media through the sand replacement method which was the reclamation technique used in the headland development six years ago.

E&O Property plans to submit its Phase 2 plans soon and expects regulatory approval in two years. Sri Tanjung Pinang is located not far from the famous Gurney Drive and the proposed Penang Outer Ring Road highway would run along the reclaimed headland.

E&O seeks go-ahead for RM4b property projects
By Adeline Paul Raja
September 29 2007
BusinessTimes


Quote:
The group plans to launch condominiums and landed properties in Seri Tanjung Pinang, while in the Klang Valley its major focus is a RM1 billion mixed-development project at the former St Mary's school site
THE Eastern & Oriental Bhd (E&O) group hopes to obtain approvals to launch a targeted RM4 billion worth of properties in Penang and the Klang Valley next year, its top official said.

About half the value of the properties it is keen to launch is in the Klang Valley, while the rest is at its Seri Tanjung Pinang seafront development in Penang, said group managing director Datuk Terry Tham.

"As we go along, we will look at the market conditions and take-up rates, but what we need to do is get all the necessary approvals ready for launch," he told reporters after the company's annual general meeting yesterday. Also present was executive director Eric Chan Kok Leong.

The group plans to launch some condominiums and landed properties in Seri Tanjung Pinang, while in the Klang Valley its major focus is a RM1 billion mixed-development project at the former St Mary's school site.

The project will comprise offices, hotels, service apartments and restaurants, said Tham.

The group also aims to launch a high-end condominium just behind Jalan Yap Kwan Seng in Kuala Lumpur, he said.

"The Malaysian property market is on a very bullish cycle and over the years we've accumulated very prime landbank. So this is the time to develop and reap the profits," Tham said.

The group will continue to look for prime landbank in Malaysia, especially in the Klang Valley, and will also consider doing joint venture projects overseas, he said.

"We have been shown some projects in other countries like Indonesia and Vietnam, but we've not embarked on any serious negotiations. We're still at the initial stage of studying these projects," he revealed.

The E&O group, which made a RM134 million net profit in the year ended March 31 2007, expects to do better this fiscal year, he said.

On plans for E&O to dispose of a 13.8 per cent stake in its property division E&O Property Development Bhd to raise funds, Tham said he was in no hurry to sell and will wait for an attractive offer.

Both local and foreign investors have expressed interest in the stake, he said.

E&O Property has seen a compounded annual growth rate of over 70 per cent over the last five years. Today, it is Malaysia's fifth largest property player by market value.

E&O Property lines up RM4b project launches
Saturday September 29, 2007
By SABRY TAHIR

They include RM2b schemes in Penang’s Seri Tanjung Pinang
KUALA LUMPUR: E & O Property Development Bhd has lined up a series of property launches worth a gross development value (GDV) of RM4bil starting next year.

Managing director Datuk Terry Tham Ka Hon said the projects would be located in the Klang Valley and Penang.

In Penang, it has earmarked projects with a GDV of RM2bil in Seri Tanjung Pinang. He said these would include high-end condominiums as well as landed properties.

On its upcoming projects in the Klang Valley, he said they would include the RM1bil mixed development project comprising a hotel, office building, service apartments and food and beverage outlets on 4.13 acres in Kuala Lumpur.

“We are waiting for the approval from the authorities,” he said yesterday after the AGMs of E & O Property and Eastern & Oriental Bhd (E & O).

E&O Property (formerly Kamunting Corp Bhd) would concentrate on the local property market, he said.

“Over the years, especially during the property market downturn, we have accumulated prime landbank. It is time to develop them and reap the profits,” he said.

In the first quarter ended June 30, the company’s net profit soared to RM35.49mil from RM20.35mil in the previous corresponding quarter.

Buoyed by the stronger property market, the company was expected to perform better in this financial year (FY) ending March 31, 2008, Tham said.

Net profit in FY07 doubled to RM133.61mil from RM64.8mil in FY06.

On its intention to sell E & O Property’s 13.8% stake in Putrajaya Perdana Bhd comprising 90 million shares, Tham said local and foreign fund managers had expressed interest to buy.

The company had obtained it shareholders’ approval to sell, but Tham said it was not “in a hurry” and would wait for the right price.

Tham, who is also managing director of E & O, said he expected the sale of the group’s 50.8% stake in Putrajaya Perdana to be completed by end of FY08.

He also said the group was on track to achieve its target of investing in RM1bil worth of prime assets in five years. It has to date acquired landbank worth some RM500mil.

The sea-fronting Seri Tanjung Pinang project in Tanjung Tokong by E & O
Property Development Bhd has sold over 80% of their properties since 2005.


Property prices in the south and southwest district of the Penang island have gone up over 20% compared to about a year ago due to the launching of high quality projects by developers from Kuala Lumpur. They have between 2004 and now announced projects worth about RM30bil to be developed on the island over the next 10 to 15 years. These developers included the Jelutong Development Sdn Bhd, E & O Property Development Bhd, Abad Naluri Sdn Bhd, CP Land Sdn Bhd, Mah Sing Bhd, and SP Setia Bhd.

Henry Butcher Malaysia (Penang) chief operating officer Lim Ewe Tatt, said some of these projects that were selling “very well” despite their prices because of their location, concept, design, and quality. Mega infrastructure projects such as the monorail, second bridge, and Penang Outer Ring Road, planned for the state under the Ninth Malaysia Plan had also helped to boost local property prices.

“The sea-fronting Seri Tanjung Pinang project in Tanjung Tokong by E & O Property Development Bhd has sold over 80% of their properties since 2005. The group has launched about 500 units of landed residential properties, priced from about RM800,000 onwards. It is now getting ready to launch new bungalows for the Seri Tanjung Pinang project at the end of the year. These bungalows are expected to be priced from RM2.8mil onwards,” he said. Lim said another project on the island, which had sold very well, was the CP Group’s Queensbay mixed-development scheme in Bayan Baru, which is in the southern part of the island.

“The CP Group has sold about 80% of the 545 units of high–rise and landed residential and commercial properties. The price for the properties ranged between RM280,000 and RM1.2mil, depending on whether the property is a high-rise or a landed unit,” he said. Lim said the properties launched by the Kuala Lumpur-based developers were targeted not just at the Penang market. “These properties are also marketed overseas and have successfully drawn much attention. Henry Butcher Malaysia (Penang), for example, has recently, in collaboration with MAS, brought in foreigners to invest in second homes on the island.”

“These overseas investors are now negotiating to purchase some RM20mil worth of properties, which are priced between RM500,000 and RM1.5mil. A substantial number of these properties that have caught the attention of foreign buyers are developed by Kuala Lumpur-based developers,” he said.

Raine & Horne (Penang) senior partner Michael Geh said Kuala Lumpur-based developers generally preferred the south and southwest districts of the island to launch their projects. “CP Landmark, SP Setia, and Mah Sing have all launched projects in the south and southwest district of the island because of the large tracts of land available for their projects.

“They require large land areas so that they can develop innovatively designed development schemes. A good example is SP Setia’s RM900mil Setia Pearl Island in Bayan Lepas located on a 112-acre site. All the homes are designed in accordance to specific themes. For example, the developer has planned for some of the homes to be surrounded by trees and flowers with an aromatic element,” he said.

“There are also homes in the Setia Pearl Island that are surrounded by shrubs or pines, spruces, and firs, covering the landscape. It is such unique concepts and designs that have boosted the sales of the project,” he added.

Geh said Mah Sing’s RM1.28bil Southbay Penang project in Batu Maung had registered some 1,500 interested buyers for the first phase of the project, scheduled for launching in early 2008.

Dream home by the sea
By Marina Emmanuel Published: 2007/10/18
BusinessTimes


Quote:
A new trend has emerged in recent years, with seaside properties seen as a viable investment option by foreign and local retirees. There are
also those who have been inspired by their travels abroad into adopting this lifestyle.
WATERFRONT properties along Penang island and Seberang Prai are becoming more coveted as economic development spurs demand for housing and commercial assets.

Although there have been seaside homes and holiday bungalows dotting the island, notably in a northeast district, for a long time, these have been few and far between as property developers have tended to build either on hill slopes or its fringes, or in prime areas in the centre of town.

These developments have sometimes raised concerns ranging from environmental degradation to traffic congestion.

But a new trend has emerged in recent years, with seaside properties seen as a viable investment option by foreign and local retirees. There are also those who have been inspired by their travels abroad into owning a home by the sea.

In the past five years, the island is seeing its fair share of waterfront developments, including a seafront master-planned project, the Seri Tanjung Pinang (STP), by E&O Property Development Bhd.

The STP project, which involves creating several man-made islands, is being touted to emerge as a “pin identifying Penang island on the international map”.

The 392ha seaside estate, which sits to the immediate north of the popular Gurney Drive in George Town, is modelled after the Dubai Waterfront project in the Middle East.

It has attracted buyers from the UK and other European countries as well as the US, its developers said.

Recent developments include the Queensbay project in Bayan Lepas, on the southwestern end of the island, which is undertaken by the Kuala Lumpur-based CP Group.

Also in the area is the Bayan Mutiara project by Penang Development Corp.

Bayan Mutiara, covering 40ha (with another 20ha earmarked for reclamation), will have high-end and affordable homes, schools, a mosque and a government administrative complex, including the state legislative assembly building.

It is also sited within the Penang Multimedia Super Corridor.

The project is expected to encompass four precints. The state administration complex will include the assembly building, offices for elected Penang representatives and the office of the Chief Minister.

According to E&O Property Development marketing and sales director K.C. Chong, the STP development will feature a headland and multi-island concept.

“Currently, at the headland, we have completed reclamation works for Phase One of 96ha, which will introduce landscaped parks and seafront promenades set amid a guarded community of luxury seafront villas, semi-detached and courtyard terrace homes, condominium and service apartments.

“There will also be commercial and retail precincts surrounding a vibrant pleasure marina offering exciting food and beverage outlets, shops, entertainment and sporting facilities,” Chong said.

The second phase of 286ha will include a cluster of islands linked by a series of bridges to the first phase.

Phase One of STP will take the next five to six years to complete. The company plans to grow its landbank under Phase Two, which will take 12 to 15 years to complete.

Reclamation works under Phase One have been completed.

“We endeavour to attract the international community to Seri Tanjung Pinang, whether to stay, invest or for a holiday,” Chong added.

“In that, we have been working with well-known international architects to create a master plan that is unique, distinctive and can emulate the successes of well-known seafront developments in the region.”

STP is said to have attracted interest, and its developers believe that the second phase will appeal to the international community.

“In terms of joint-venture partners, we have partnered credible names from Singapore as well as the Middle East,” said Chong.

Meanwhile, the mixed development Queensbay township sits on 29.2ha and commands a strategic view of the Penang Bridge and Pulau Jerejak.

The freehold project is accessible via major roads like the Bayan Lepas and Jelutong expressways, and is also part of the Penang Multimedia Super Corridor.

With the construction of the Second Penang Bridge linking Batu Maung on the island to Batu Kawan in Seberang Prai, Queensbay is set to be sandwiched between two bridges linking the island and mainland.

“Now that we have completed the Queensbay Mall (and plans are in place to expand it via the addition of a second wing), we are setting our sights on creating an alternative ‘central business district’ for Penang here at Queensbay,” CP Land chief executive officer Tony Lim said.

On the drawing board are 86 exclusive waterfront villas and a RM200 million Queens Wharf comprising a public marina, retail and food and beverage outlets along with office suites and a promenade.

“We are also planning a Queens City development, which will be sited on 6.4ha,” Lim added.

The RM1 billion project is expected to begin construction by 2008 and to be completed in four years.

Among other developments, it will have a 400-room, five-star hotel with a ballroom that can fit in 2,000 people.

The self-contained city will also have furnished serviced residences, four blocks of office suites as well as more food and beverage and retail outlets.

A stone’s throw away, the Bayan Mutiara seafront integrated property project will mark Penang Development Corp’s entry as a premier housing developer.

The corporation, since 1969, has been a major player in formulating Penang’s development policies and made a name for itself in transforming the state into an electronics powerhouse.

It has also been instrumental in developing satellite townships like Bayan Baru, Seberang Jaya and Batu Kawan in the state.

“Our waterfront landed properties at Bayan Mutiara, totalling 168 units, will be built on 11.16ha of seafronting land,” PDC Properties Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Osman Kallahan said.

The first phase of the waterfront homes will comprise 70 superlink homes and 43 bungalows, while the second phase will see the construction of 55 bungalows, he added.

“Upon completion of the project, we expect to achieve a gross development value of RM179.4 million,” said Osman.

On how the STP will raise the bar in seaside living in Penang, Chong said:

“This master-planned development will stimulate new growth, energy and focus to Penang’s seafront as Palm Jumeirah and Sentosa Cove have done for Dubai and Singapore respectively.

“It will emerge as a symbol of pride and progress for Penang island — gaining worldwide publicity and prestige, attracting capital inflows and investment, employment and business opportunities, especially for Penang tourism.”

E&O JV in Penang luxury seafront villas project

By Sharon Tan
Email us your feedback at [email protected]


PENANG: E&O Property Development Bhd’s joint-venture luxury bungalows project on Penang island, where the units are priced between RM2.75 million and RM7.5 million, will be launched on Saturday.

The Villas By-The-Sea project villas would be built on 15 acres of freehold land in Seri Tanjung Pinang, with total of 750 metres of frontage facing the Straits of Malacca. They are scheduled to be completed by mid-2009.

The JV partners include Bahrain’s Al Salam Bank and CIMB-Mapletree Real Estate Fund 1 Sdn Bhd.

E&O Property director of marketing and sales KC Chong said with the rising affluence in Asia, the concept of luxury had evolved significantly and shifted from tangibles like ownership of properties, to intangibles like time, personal space and relaxation.

“These have become very valuable to many, thus resort-styled homes and developments that are set in lush natural surroundings and blessed with the sun, sand and sea are becoming highly sought after. But what makes our Villa By-The-Sea truly unique is their prime location just minutes away from Gurney Drive,” he said.

CIMB-Mapletree chief executive officer Raja Noorma Othman said the project represented the real estate fund’s maiden foray into the upscale residential market in Penang.

“We are confident that this joint venture will strengthen our position in the international luxury property market and pave the way for further developments in the high-growth market,” she said.

CIMB-Mapletree is a private real estate fund managed by CIMB-Mapletree Management Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between CIMB Real Estate Sdn Bhd and Mapletree Capital Management Ltd.

The villas come in three designs, namely Martinique which is located by the sea, Abrezz and Skye with land area ranging from 4,999 sq ft to 12,860 sq ft each.

&O finalising concept for 2nd phase of Seri Tanjung Pinang
By Marina Emmanuel Published: 2008/02/01

E&O Property Development Bhd is finalising the concept plan for the second phase of its Seri Tanjung Pinang (STP) project in Penang.

This portion of the integrated waterfront development, encompassing 296ha of reclaimed land, will see a cluster of islands emerging offshore. They will be linked with bridges to phase one of the development in Tanjung Tokong.

"We expect to begin work for phase two within the next two years, subject to obtaining all necessary approvals from the relevant authorities," the company's marketing and sales director K.C. Chong told Business Times.

The entire project involves almost 400ha of freehold land, extending from the northeast coast of Penang Island towards the series of islands in the second phase.

The project, which is modelled after the Dubai Waterfront in the Middle East, is being marketed as Penang's largest master planned waterfront community.

Chong said the second phase would include an international hotel and resort.

"Currently at the headland, we have completed reclamation works for phase one which includes a guarded community of luxury seafront villas, semi-detached and courtyard terrace homes, condominiums and service apartments," he added.

He said around 60 per cent of the 96ha of the total land area has been developed.

"Currently under development are seafront villas, semi-detached homes, terraces, serviced apartment, along with a retail and marina component."

The first phase has a gross development value (GDV) of RM2.6 billion and some RM600 million worth of properties have been sold.

"The bulk of the remaining GDV that has yet to be launched is the second tranche of seafront villas, some semi-detached homes and the upcoming condominiums which are targeted to be launched by the third quarter of this year," he added.

"To date, we have handed over around 225 units of courtyard terraces, 26 units of 'Avalon' semi-detached homes and 40 bungalow parcels since its maiden launch at the end of 2003."
