Lebar Daun going ahead with projects
By Julie Chong
Email us your feedback at fd@bizedge.com


Shah Alam will be abuzz with excitement when a new shopping mall takes shape in the next two years. It will come up in D'Kayangan, which is a mixed upmarket development situated in Section 13, beside the Federal Highway and the Elite Highway, opposite the Shah Alam Stadium.
The mall project, touted to be the biggest in Shah Alam, will be built by Lebar Daun Development Sdn Bhd.
The complex, which covers 30 acres, is the size of about 30 football fields.
It is to be jointly developed with a retail giant, says Noorazhar Mohamed Nurdin, Lebar Daun's executive director.
“The sales and purchase agreement for the sale of the land to the retail giant will be signed within the next few weeks,” he adds. The company is keeping the identity of the retail giant close to its chest. The mall is expected to open for business in 2011.
Work on D'Kayangan, which sits on a 163-acre site, started in 2005. To be developed in 13 phases, the leasehold project has a gross development value of RM1.6 billion. Scheduled to be completed in 2015, the development will feature 1,323 superlink houses, semidees, cluster homes and bungalows.
About 50 acres have been set aside for commercial and retail projects. Lebar Daun will move away from the traditional 2-storey shopoffices and offer 3 and 5-storey commerce galleries to cater for larger companies.
Arman Putera Asmuni, Lebar Daun sales and marketing manager, says the shopoffices are called galleries because of their large sizes (built-up of 20,000 sq ft for the 5-storey corner lots). They are slated for launch sometime this year after the sale of the land for the mall has been finalised.
The target market for the shopoffices comprises telecommunication firms, banks, and furniture and textile companies. So far, the developer has approached a few banks, a telecommunication company and a textile firm and recently signed up with a cosmetics giant.
In Phase One, seventy-two 2-storey semidees and twenty-four 2½-storey semidee villas have been sold. Phases Three and Four feature seventy-six 2-storey superlink homes and seventy-six 2-storey semidees. The superlink homes — Alicia and Amanda — in Phase Three are priced at RM539,000 and RM595,000 respectively.
In Phases Three and Four, 60% and 50% have been taken up respectively. The remaining units are targeted to be sold by year-end. Most of the buyers in these two phases are young executives, professionals and former senior government officers.

Bukit Bandaraya Shah Alam
Over at Section 8, Lebar Daun is developing Bukit Bandaraya Shah Alam, a 300-acre leasehold mixed development that is five minutes away from the Shah Alam city centre. Of the 300 acres, 15 are allocated for commercial projects.
Neighbouring Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Sri Alam, Bukit Bandaraya Shah Alam, with a GDV of RM1.2 billion, is being developed over 15 phases. So far, in Phase One, 264 terraced houses have been sold; in Phase 2A, all the 54 semidees have been snapped up while in Phase 2B, 16 out of 36 semidees have been taken up. In Phase Three, 233 apartments have been sold; in Phase 4A, all the 88 units of superlink houses have been snapped up while in Phase 4B, 60% of the superlink houses have been taken up. The company is also developing 2, 2½ and 3-storey bungalows in a gated and guarded enclave called Nuang Hills consisting of 22 units each in Phases 10A and 10B. Offering nine various designs, 80% of the bungalows in Phase 10A have been completed while work has not started on Phase 10B. Lot sizes for these bungalows range from 5,000 to 7,000 sq ft. So far, three bungalows have been sold in Phase 10A.
Prices for the 2-storey link houses, semidees, apartments, bungalows, condominiums and commercial properties are from RM165,000 to RM3 million.
Lebar Daun's latest offering are 2-storey superlink homes called Marinha and Marica.
“We launched the medium-end developments first and are gradually moving towards the higher-end. With the poor market sentiment, we have to plan our launches in phases,” says Noorazhar.
Bukit Bandaraya Shah Alam was launched in 2001 which featured some link houses, semidees and apartments.When the whole project is completed in 2015, it will have 2,816 units of 2-storey link houses, semidees, bungalows, condominiums and apartments and 210 commercial lots occupying 15 acres of land.
The 2-storey superlink homes — Marinha and Marica — in Phase 4B, with built-ups of 2,138 and 1,788 sq ft respectively, are pegged from RM349,999 to RM329,000 (bumiputera price). Marinha consists of 69 homes while Marica comprises 19. Marica has been sold out while Marinha has been 60% taken up, with the remaining 40% expected to be sold out when it is completed in November this year.
Due to overwhelming response to Phase 4B, the developer is planning to launch Phase 4C comprising eighty-eight 2-storey superlink houses, but has yet to decide on the design, size and selling prices. The phase is expected to be launched in 3Q2009.
Two more phases will be unveiled this year — Aurora (Phase 8A) and Iris (Phase 5D). Aurora comprises one-hundred and forty 2-storey terraced houses, while Iris comprises forty-three 2-storey terraced houses. Iris is scheduled for launch by end-February, while Aurora's is in 3Q2009.
“We are targeting first-time buyers, especially fresh graduates and young married couples. There are also those who might want to move to a landed house or from semidees to bungalows. We are also eyeing investors who are looking at keeping the properties for two to three years or who just want to rent them out,” says Noorazhar.
“With a catchment population of about 800,000 in the surrounding areas, we are positive that given the infrastructure and designs, we will be able to achieve good take-ups.”
He says the lack of entertainment outlets in Shah Alam will not deter buyers.
“There are plenty of such outlets in nearby Subang and Sunway. There is also an international school next to Bukit Bandaraya Shah Alam.”
Noorazhar says D'Kayangan caters primarily for investors and upgraders while Bukit Bandaraya Shah Alam offers more affordable homes.

Future
Even in the midst of a downturn, Lebar Daun plans to go ahead with its projects.
“While other developers are holding back, we are going ahead with our projects. Once the economy rebounds, people will buy completed homes,” says Noorazhar.
“If we were to put off our launches and wait until the economy recovers, construction will be delayed. We're launching now so that when the economy gets better, we will have completed units for sale. We will keep launching regardless of the economic situation,” he adds.
Lebar Daun is planning to expand to Johor Baru. “We are in the midst of talks to acquire landbank there,” says Noorazhar.
“We feel there is a potential market in Johor Baru, especially with the rollout of the Iskandar Malaysia. We can go in and together, grow the economic corridor,” he adds.

A park in the city
Story and photos by SALINA KHALID


WHEN it comes to parks and recreational facilities, Shah Alam residents should consider themselves lucky as they have many of these.

One such place is located in Alam Megah, Section 28. The park which was opened in 2003 is one of the largest recreational area in the capital city.

The RM4mil park is the second largest built by the Shah Alam City Council, after the Shah Alam Lake in Section 4.


For easy access: A wooden walkway at the park.

Taman Alam Megah, which covers section 26 to 29 used to be an industrial area but now, the landscape has gone through a transformation with more terrace houses and higher end property being built in addition to the flats and apartments.

The recreational facility was created to meet the needs of the residents.

The land, previously vacant, has been turned into a man-made wetlands complete with a special underground water filter system to recycle the water.


Refreshing sight: The pond in Taman Alam Megah Park.

The system was designed not only to clean the water but also to prevent the foul odour usually associated with man-made lakes.

The site is especially popular with families who like to take a stroll in the park.

“It is nice to come here, especially early in the morning or in the evening and the best part is that it is only a stone’s throw away from my apartment,” said Nuraini Ahmad.

The mother of three said she usually went to the park to unwind and have some quiet time in the morning after sending her three children off to school.


Strategic position: The gazebo where visitors can have a picnic or just relax.

She admitted that she liked the water feature of the park most.

“Usually I would just sit on the rocks under the trees to read the newspaper or just relax.

“Sometimes I have my breakfast here on the gazebo,” she said.

The place is usually crowded in the evening, especially after 5pm.

Some come to use the jogging track surrounding the park or play football. Others come to enjoy the evening breeze at the gazebos.

There is also a restaurant operating at the premises and this keeps the place alive at night.


the family: The park is a nice place for a stroll in the evening.

There are also plenty of activities for children and adults alike.

Besides the ordinary playground equipment, visitors can use the monkey bar or try the hanging bridge or balancing beam.

But keeping the park clean is indeed a mega task. The cleaners do not find it amusing when they have to clean up the litter left behind, especially on Mondays after the big number of visitors during the weekend.

At times, the rubbish includes pebbles and even pieces of wood. This could damage the system designed for the wetlands.

Vandalism is also rampant.

“We conduct regular cleaning work at the park but visitors must help ensure that they do not litter and dispose of their garbage properly,” said MBSA public relations officer Shahrin Ahmad,

Shah Alam has 18 roundabouts connecting its arteries
By SALINA KHALID


IN addition to the Sultan Salahuddin Mosque, State Secretariat Building and Kompleks PKNS, Shah Alam is also known for its roundabouts, all 18 of them.

The roundabouts are spread throughout the city, connecting major road arteries from Section 1 to 25.

They are Bulatan Damai (Section 1,7), Mestika (junction Section 3,4,6,7), Sejahtera (Section 15), Setia Jasa (bordering Section 4,5,10), Selangor (Section 15), Kemajuan (Section 16), Jubli Perak (Section 18,19,23 and 24), Budiman (Section 25), Stadium (Section 13), Bistari (Section 1,2,3), Permai (Section 2,3,4,14), Darul Ehsan (from the Federal Highway heading to city centre, (Section 14, 15), Perusahaan (bordering Section 15 and 16), Andalas (Section 17, 18 and 24), Melawati (above Federal Highway towards Istana Kayangan), Kayangan (Section 11, 12,13), Megawati (Section 20,21,22,23) and Aman (Section 25).


Small wonder: One of the smallest roundabouts in Shah Alam.

They differ in sizes and are designed to accommodate local traffic. The biggest are the Bulatan Kayangan, located near Istana Kayangan or the Bulatan Setiajasa near the state mosque while smaller ones include the roundabout near the Wisma MBSA and the Selangor Umno building.

In its early stages in the 1970s, traffic lights were unheard off in Shah Alam and roundabouts were seen as the best solution for traffic dispersal in the planned township.

At the same time, signal systems were expensive to install and maintain and could result in an expensive energy bill, as the signals are required to operate continuously.

“Roundabouts reduce waiting periods and maximise the number of vehicles using the junctions.

“But, at the same time, roundabouts are only a temporary measure of traffic dispersal at junctions, as they do not work well in areas with high traffic volume,” Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) engineering department director Cherami Tarman said.

He said roundabouts were no longer suitable if motorists had to wait more than 20 miniutes, which indicated a high traffic volume.

He added that in such cases, alternative traffic dispersal methods should be used. These included replacing the roundabouts with traffic lights or, in some cases, with flyovers.

Although installing traffic lights and constructing flyovers involve high costs, they provide solutions to traffic congestion if the roundabouts were deemed unsuitable.

He said this was the case with the Bulatan Kayangan, where a traffic light system was installed at the roundabout.


Guiding light: Most roundabouts in Shah Alam have signages like this one to guide motorists.

The Bulatan Selangor, Setiajasa and Megawati have flyovers which allow traffic to bypass the roundabouts.

“We have planned to replace some of the roundabouts in the city with traffic light systems.

“The roundabouts are no longer suitable to accommodate the increasing traffic volume, especially in the city centre but it has to be done in stages,” Cherami said.

A well-designed roundabout requires motorists to slow down when negotiating the roadway. Because of this, roundabouts can serve as a method to alert road users that they are transitioning from one road environment to another.

Cherami also said roundabouts usually did not use traffic signals to control the entry and exit and did not require a constant power supply.

This means that a roundabout can continue to function during power failures.

Also roundabouts do not require the installation or maintenance of the traffic detection devices associated with traffic signals

Mixed reactions to road system


WHEN asked, motorists in Shah Alam had mixed reactions to the roundabouts in the city.

To some, these roundabouts were convenient as they did not have to wait for long periods at the junctions, as some roundabouts did not require them to come to a complete stop.

But for most motorists, especially visitors not too familiar with the city’s road system, the roundabouts are a problem. Many find them confusing and can lead to drivers losing their way.

“I am scared of roundabouts because of my poor sense of direction.


Changing lanes: Due to the increase in traffic, many roundabouts in Shah Alam will soon be equipped with traffic lights.

“That is why I usually take a taxi to get to Shah Alam,” Aliza Abdul Rahman from Subang Jaya said.

Aliza, who visits the Kompleks PKNS and other facilities in the city centre regularly, said she did not mind paying for a taxi instead of wasting fuel and facing the possibility of getting lost.

Mohd Hamzah Ismail, a Shah Alam resident for the past 20 years, believed that some of the roundabouts were no longer suitable and needed to be replaced by traffic lights.

“I still remember about 20 years ago when we did not have traffic lights and all the major roads were connected to roundabouts.

“We could drive at a turtle’s pace then because there was hardly any traffic.

“But now, as the city has developed, traffic jams are becoming common and we end up waiting at the roundabouts these days,” he said.

At the same time, he also complained that many Malaysian drivers did not know how to use roundabouts.

He added that some kept overtaking while in the roundabout. He also said some drivers did not seem to know who had the right of way at a roundabout.

“I got my driving licence in Australia and one thing that the instructors made sure of was that I knew how to approach the roundabouts.

“I don’t think that our driving schools teach that here,” he said.

He added that some people did not know that they had to yield to the traffic that was already in the roundabout and could only enter the roundabout when it was clear,

Meanwhile, Hamidah Hamid said the roundabouts were confusing when she first moved to Shah Alam three years ago.

She admitted that she had lost her way several times until she began planning her routes in advance and making sure of her travel plans.

“I will also look for a landmark that I can see even from far off when I approach the roundabout.

“So, no matter where I am, I know which way I am heading and the system has worked out so far,” she said.

Most drivers not taught how to use roundabouts


ONLY some Malaysians are tested on how to drive at a roundabout before getting their driving licences.

A driving instructor, who wanted to be known as Sham, said although the subject was part of the syllabus, most driving institutes did not have the facilities at their compounds.

Similarly, whether the students are tested on their knowledge and skills in dealing with roundabouts also depends on the route and venue where they take their driving tests.

This means that most Malaysian drivers learn it through trial and error.


Cutting in: At a roundabout, the traffic from the right has right-of-way.

Approaching a roundabout can be a scary experience, especially for a new driver.

“Some driving instructors do teach their students during the practical session on the road.

“But others do not and only concentrate on teaching their students to pass the road test,” Sham added.

As a ground rule, he said drivers had to ensure that they gave way to traffic approaching from the right as the flow of traffic was clockwise.

They also have to allow vehicles that are already in the roundabout to go first and enter the roundabout only when it is clear.

Motorists also have to constantly observe other traffic especially motorcyclists. They have to make sure that they take the proper lanes while in the roundabout.

“The most important thing is to use the proper signals to indicate where we are going and to alert other motorists of our direction,” Sham said

Anggerik Mall pusat beli-belah digital
Oleh Rafidah Mat Ruzki
fidahruzki@bharian.com.my



SHAH ALAM: Mara kini dalam proses untuk mengubah bentuk perniagaan di Anggerik Mall di sini untuk dijadikan pusat beli-belah digital bagi membezakannya daripada pusat beli-belah lain sekitarnya.

Menteri Pembangunan Usahawan dan Koperasi, Datuk Noh Omar, berkata, Mara perlu mencari tapak baru bagi penyewa yang menjalankan perniagaan bukan berasaskan teknologi maklumat (IT) termasuk menjual telefon bimbit.

"Ia akan menjadi tumpuan pelajar di Shah Alam. Kita ada ramai pelajar seperti pelajar Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) dan pelajar kolej swasta," katanya pada sidang media selepas merasmikan penutupan Digital Fair di sini.

Noh berkata, pengurusan di Anggerik Mall juga akan diswastakan bagi menarik minat lebih ramai pengunjung ke pusat beli-belah itu.

Katanya, daripada sesi dialog itu, ramai penyewa mengadu tidak ramai pengunjung mungkin kerana kekurangan promosi dan Mara tidak mempunyai banyak peruntukan untuk tujuan itu.

Noh berkata, sewa premis di Anggerik Mall juga akan ditentukan Mara dan sebarang kenaikan sewa memerlukan kelulusan.

"Masalah sekarang ialah bagaimana hendak keluarkan penyewa sedia ada. Mereka merayu jangan dikeluarkan lagi. Kita juga tidak mahu zalim. Mara hendak tolong orang Melayu. Mara sedang mencari tapak dan premis lain supaya mereka yang akan keluar ditawarkan ke premis lain manakala penyewa yang menjalankan perniagaan berasaskan IT dikekalkan," katanya.

Selain itu, Noh berkata, beliau sudah mengarahkan sekurang-kurangnya 30 peratus penyewa di kios yang dimiliki Mara dan Uda Holdings Bhd (Uda) adalah usahawan Bumiputera yang menjalankan perniagaan berasaskan IT.

Katanya, ramai usahawan muda Bumiputera mahu menjalankan perniagaan IT tetapi tidak mempunyai tapak berniaga sedangkan UDA dan Mara mempunyai premis dan tempat bersesuaian.

"Mara dan UDA ada bangunan untuk usahawan Bumiputera berniaga tetapi kita lihat majoriti yang menjual telefon bimbit, bukan Bumiputera. Saya sudah minta pegawai Mara dan UDA buat pemeriksaan mengejut dan jika ada peniaga tidak mengikut perjanjian (menyewakan tapak kepada bukan Bumiputera) kita akan batalkan kelulusan," katanya.

Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya menanti pelawat
Oleh Wan Jailani Razak
wanjai@bharian.com.my


SAID ABDUL MANAF menunjukkan Perkampungan Budaya yang pernah dinaiki air pada 2003.



Aktiviti lasak, persembahan kebudayaan kembalikan kemeriahan

SHAH ALAM: Selepas enam tahun Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam atau Taman Botani Negara di Seksyen 7, di sini, dikejutkan dengan banjir kilat dan kerosakan akibat pembangunan pesat di kawasan sekitar, ia kini bertukar wajah dan sedia menanti kunjungan pelawat.

Pelbagai usaha dilakukan secara berperingkat bagi memulihkan keadaan persekitaran di taman seluas 817 hektar itu sejak tragedi alam sekitar itu berlaku pada 2003.



Malah, kini taman berkenaan sering dijadikan rujukan mana-mana agensi yang terbabit dalam projek pembangunan khususnya dari sudut kepentingan menjaga alam sekitar.

Justeru, terpulang kepada semua pihak untuk mengembalikan zaman kegemilangan taman itu apabila menerima kunjungan 300,000 pengunjung setahun pada awal 1990-an, sekali gus memartabatkan Taman Botani Negara di mata dunia.

Mengimbas kembali kejadian itu, Pengurusnya, Said Abdul Manaf Said Mahadi, berkata pendedahan awal mengenai kesan ke atas alam sekitar itu dibuat oleh orang awam yang bimbang dengan projek pembangunan tanpa kawalan di kawasan U10.


RUMAH Terengganu di Perkampungan Budaya, Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam.



Katanya, taman berkenaan turut menerima tempias daripada pembangunan di kawasan itu sehingga berlaku banjir kilat di Perkampungan Budaya menyebabkan banyak harta benda dan tumbuhan musnah.

Selain itu, katanya, Empangan Sungai Baru turut tercemar berikutan kemasukan air berlumpur dari kawasan bersebelahan di mana projek perumahan giat dijalankan, menyebabkan banyak ikan air tawar mati sekali gus terpaksa ditutup daripada kunjungan kaki pancing.

"Saya masih ingat ketika itu saya hendak ke Perkampungan Budaya dan Empangan Sungai Baru tetapi tersekat kerana jalan terhalang oleh banjir kilat dengan air naik sehingga paras pinggang.

"Hanya bot yang boleh melalui jalan berkenaan. Ketika itu apa yang boleh nampak hanya bumbung bangunan," katanya ketika ditemui di pejabatnya di Taman Pertanian Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam, di sini, semalam.



Wartawan yang meninjau kawasan taman yang dibuka pada 1988 itu kemudian, mendapati Perkampungan Budaya kini dihidupkan dengan penganjuran pelbagai majlis berbentuk akademik, kebudayaan, penggambaran, perjumpaan ahli kelab dan pertubuhan bukan kerajaan, selain pakej perkahwinan.

Perkampungan Budaya di kawasan seluas 10 hektar yang menempatkan Rumah Terengganu, Rumah Kelantan, Rumah Pahang, Rumah Johor, Rumah Melaka dan Rumah Negeri Sembilan itu berkonsepkan adat tradisional Melayu kelas bangsawan berdasarkan seni bina dan kelengkapan di dalamnya.

Said Abdul Manaf berkata, bagi menarik lebih ramai pengunjung ke taman itu, pihaknya menawarkan kadar baru RM200 untuk mereka yang mahu bermalam di rumah berkenaan, berbanding RM500 sebelum ini.

Sehingga kini, pihaknya menerima sambutan menggalakkan bagi penginapan di situ, Katanya, bagi pemancing pula, mereka juga kini boleh melakukan aktiviti itu di mana-mana kolam di taman berkenaan hanya dengan membayar RM2 untuk sebatang joran, selain RM3 bayaran tiket masuk.

"Selain Rumah Iklim Empat Musim, kami menawarkan penginapan di Kampung Idaman, perkhemahan dan pelbagai kemudahan rekreasi seperti `paint ball' yang berbentuk peperangan dalam hutan dan Skytrex Adventure Park.

"Kita juga bercadang memperkenalkan kenderaan lasak bermotor empat tayar yang membolehkan pengunjung meredah trek hutan secara lasak. Acara baru ini dijangka menarik minat ramai penggemar aktiviti sukan lasak," katanya.

Katanya, aktiviti lasak itu bukan saja mencabar keberanian dan rasa takut pengunjung tetapi lebih penting sebagai mendidik dan menambah pengetahuan terutama mengenai hutan hujan tropika negara serta keindahan alam semula jadi.

Stalled project in Shah Alam to be revived
Friday May 1, 2009

AN abandoned project in Section 20, Shah Alam, will soon be revived by a new developer.

Work on the Sri Puteri apartments, which was stalled for five years, is expected to begin in December and completed in 36 months.

Shah Alam Mayor Mazalan Md Noor said he hoped the new developer - Syarikat Semangat Ulung Sdn Bhd - would bring some relief to its buyers.

“We want the house buyers to contact the new developer and give their go ahead so that they can start work,” he said.

“At least 86% of the buyers must agree to the change of developer and so far 70% of them had consented.”

Mazalan said the project started in 2003 but was abandoned a year later.

He added that 65% of the structure had been completed.

Mazalan added that the public had filed numerous complaints on the stalled project which became an eyesore in the area.

On March 31, StarMetro highlighted the issue and exposed the building as a haunt for drug addicts and an ideal breeding ground for mosquitos.

For buyers who are unaware of the takeover, Ulung Semangat can be contacted at: 03-77277811 or fax: 03-772 558 11.

Shah Alam to get new bus terminal complex


SHAH ALAM will soon have its own bus terminal complex.

The bus terminal complex, to be housed at Section U1 near the Batu Tiga police station, will be built in two stages.

Under the first phase, Mazalan said 45 bays would be provided in the complex.

He said the three-storey complex would be equipped with ticketing counters, retail and food outlets on the first floor and car park and drop off points on the second floor.

He said it would be situated at a strategic location near to Stadium Shah Alam and the indoor stadium and also the Federal Highway.

“The second phase will be more of expansion from the first phase which includes pedestrian crossing from the terminal to the Komuter station situated across the Federal Highway.

“It will also provide space for operation of all the buses including local, express and inter- state,’’ he added.

Mazalan said the work on the terminal was expected to start at the end of the year and completed in two years.

Terminal moden di Shah Alam

Oleh RASMI ABDULLAH
kota@utusan.com.my



ILUSTRASI terminal pengangkutan awam Shah Alam di Seksyen U1 yang akan mula dibina pada penghujung tahun ini dan dijangka siap dalam tempoh dua tahun.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



SHAH ALAM 4 Mei - Bandar raya Shah Alam bakal memiliki sebuah terminal pengangkutan awam yang serba canggih dan moden bernilai lebih RM20 juta dalam masa dua tahun lagi.

Berupaya menampung sehingga 5,000 pengguna pada satu-satu masa, terminal di tapak berkeluasan 6.4 hektar di Seksyen U1 di sini itu juga bakal dilengkapi dengan pelbagai kemudahan untuk pengguna.

Antaranya termasuk 10 tangga bergerak, lapan lif dan puluhan kios serta kemudahan untuk orang kurang upaya (OKU), sekali gus bakal menjadikannya antara terminal pengangkutan awam tercanggih di negara ini dan bakal muncul sebagai mercu tanda baru bandar raya ini.

Datuk Bandar Shah Alam, Mazalan Md. Noor berkata, terminal itu akan dibina dalam tiga fasa secara berperingkat-peringkat dengan fasa pertama dijangka bermula pada hujung tahun ini dan siap pada 2011.

"Apabila fasa pertama itu siap, pengguna sudah boleh menggunakan terminal ini yang berupaya menempatkan 45 buah bas pada satu masa.

"Bagi fasa kedua dan tiga yang akan meningkatkan keupayaannya bagi menampung sehingga 75 buah bas, dijangka dimulakan sebaik sahaja fasa satu siap," katanya di sini.

Mazalan memberitahu, kos pembinaan fasa satu terminal itu akan ditanggung sepenuhnya oleh MBSA dan pihaknya akan mengemukakan cadangan kepada kerajaan negeri untuk meminta bantuan.

Beliau menjelaskan, terminal itu nanti akan terdiri daripada dua bangunan utama yang dipisahkan oleh Jalan Jubli Perak tetapi akan dihubungkan dengan sebuah jambatan.

"Bangunan terminal tiga tingkat ini meliputi ruang menunggu di tingkat satu, kaunter tiket dan pusat perniagaan di tingkat dua manakala tingkat tiga adalah tempat letak kenderaan dan ruang menurun dan mengambil penumpang," ujarnya.

Mazalan berkata, lokasi di U1 itu adalah strategik kerana ia berdekatan dengan Stadium Shah Alam, stesen komuter Batu Tiga, beberapa institusi pengajian tinggi seperti politeknik, Universiti Industri Selangor (Unisel) dan kawasan perumahan.

Project comes to a halt as funds stop coming in
By ELAN PERUMAL


A MULTI-MILLION ringgit government project at Section U1 in Shah Alam has been grounded after seeing almost 70% completion.

The project which is being carried out by the Home Affairs Ministry at a cost of RM45mil has been abandoned for almost a year and the situation is worrying residents.

Previously, it had been reported that the project was a police logistics complex for the Selangor Police Contingent Headquarters and was to have involved an administrative building, a store, several different types of housing, a multi-purpose hall and a kindergarten.


Left behind: Some of the construction equipment can be seen piled up at the site.

The project is being developed by Eastern Access Sdn Bhd and executive chairman Datuk Syed Taha Syed Mohamed confirmed that the project had stalled due to a lack of funds.

“We hope to continue the project when more funds arrive,” he said, adding that more than RM30mil had already been spent on the project.

Nearby residents have expressed fears of the consequences if the project, which is located on a 1.5ha plot of land near the traffic light junction to Taman TTDI Jaya, was abandoned.


Drainage problem: The drains are not complete and the covered culverts have been left lying around.

One resident, who tipped off StarMetro about the situation, said it could become a hotbed for vice activities among the youth as there were several colleges located nearby.

“Drug addicts and criminals may also use the project site as a hideout since there are already completed buildings in the area,’’ he added.

A view from outside showed that the project was nearing completion and the finishing touches have already been made to several of the buildings that face the Persiaran Usahawan. These buildings have also been painted.


Still in progress: While some of the structures have been painted, others are only half-complete.

Checks revealed that the project was almost complete with two blocks of apartments being built and structures like a garage, a petrol depot and workshops already built.

Most of the buildings have already been painted except for the two blocks of apartments.

Construction materials can be seen left lying around in clusters within the project site which had been boarded up. However, some sections of the hoarding have already collapsed.

SP Setia lancar projek rumah kos rendah
Oleh Wan Jailani Razak dan Nurulfatiha Muah
bhnews@bharian.com.my


KONG (kanan) mendengar penerangan daripada Liew mengenai projek perumahan kos rendah di Bandar Setia Alam, semalam.



SP Setia Bhd (SP Setia), antara pemaju hartanah terkemuka tempatan, semalam melancarkan skim perumahan kos rendah di kawasan pembangunan utama Bandar Setia Alam, di Shah Alam, Selangor.

Presiden dan Ketua Eksekutifnya, Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin, berkata projek di kawasan seluas 48 hektar itu membabitkan pembinaan 7,212 unit rumah dan akan dibangunkan secara berperingkat dalam tempoh 10 tahun.

Katanya, ketika ini 449 unit sudah siap dan dijual pada harga RM42,000 seunit dengan dilengkapi kemudahan setaraf pemilik pelbagai jenis rumah yang dibangunkan di kawasan terbabit.

Beliau berkata, projek yang dibangunkan bagi memenuhi tanggungjawab sosial syarikat itu membabitkan apartmen lima dan enam tingkat, dengan keluasan 682 kaki persegi.

"Kami menerima maklum balas positif berhubung reka bentuk apartmen ini yang tidak kelihatan seperti rumah kos rendah, tetapi menarik dengan kemudahan yang lazimnya tidak ada di perumahan kos rendah lain.

"Berikutan itu, kami yakin produk syarikat akan diterima baik kerana ramai orang berminat membeli rumah kos rendah berikutan masalah ekonomi ketika ini.

"Kami mempunyai senarai panjang pelanggan yang menunggu untuk memilikinya. Sebaik mendapat kelulusan pihak berkuasa, kami akan menghubungi mereka," katanya pada sidang media selepas pelancaran itu yang disempurnakan Menteri Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan Datuk, Seri Kong Cho Ha di Shah Alam, semalam.

Kong turut menyaksikan majlis memeterai memorandum persefahaman antara SP Setia dan Malaysia Building Society Bhd (MBSB) bagi pembiayaan 100 peratus perumahan kos sederhana rendah Setia Alam.

SP Setia diwakili Liew dan Ketua Pegawai Operasinya, Datuk Voon Tin Yow manakala MBSB diwakili Ketua Eksekutifnya, Ahmad Zaini Othman.

Sementara itu, pembangunan perumahan kos sederhana rendah yang membabitkan 220 unit apartmen lima tingkat, dengan keluasan 800 kaki persegi, dijangka dilancarkan bulan depan.

Liew berkata, Pakej Pinjaman Perumahan 5/95 SP Setia yang dilancarkan Januari lalu dan berakhir bulan lalu sudah dilanjutkan hingga 19 Julai 2009.

"Sasaran kami bagi tempoh tiga bulan akan datang ialah RM300 juta," katanya.

Pakej pinjaman rumah itu membolehkan pembeli membayar hanya lima peratus daripada harga rumah, manakala semula yuran guaman dan duti setem perjanjian jual beli ditanggung oleh SP Setia.

Pembangunan di kawasan seluas 1,010 hektar tanah berstatus pegangan bebas itu dijangka menjadi satu pembangunan pesat dan terbaik di Lembah Klang merangkumi kawasan perumahan dan komersial.

Developer waiting for green light from ministry to revive project
BY ELAN PERUMAL


THE Selangor government has called on the federal government to quickly resolve the issue surrounding the halted police logistic complex project in Shah Alam.

The state fears it will add on to the many existing abandoned projects if no action is taken to resolve the issue between the contractor and the government.

It was reported in the StarMetro on Monday that the multi-million ringgit government project at Section U1 in Shah Alam has been grounded after seeing almost 70% completion. The project which is being carried out by the Home Affairs Ministry at a cost of RM45mil has been abandoned for almost a year.

State housing, building management and squatters committee chairman Iskandar Abdul Samad said his office would be writing to the Home Affairs Ministry on the issue.

Iskandar said the project should go on.

“It is a shame as this is not a private project and I don’t understand why the project stopped halfway.

“Certainly, we do not want to add a government project into our list of abandoned projects in the state,’’ he said.

The project, which is being developed by Eastern Access Sdn Bhd, is estimated to cost RM45mil.

Its executive chairman, Datuk Syed Taha Syed Mohamed, said his company had so far invested RM35mil in the project and was unable to go ahead with the project due to some technical problems.

He said they had secured financing from Bank Pembangunan but was awaiting the green light from the Home Affairs Ministry.

“This project is undertaken through the design-and-build concept on a privatisation basis.

“We cannot finish the project unless the ministry can give me the endorsement,’’ he said.

Previously, it had been reported that the project was a police logistics complex for the Selangor Police Contingent Headquarters and was to have involved an administrative building, a store, several types of housing, a multi-purpose hall and a kindergarten.

Shah Alam’s isle of birds
Friday June 5, 2009
By SALINA KHALID



Lovely: This view of the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque
is only available from the boat.


THE Antan Batura boat moves slowly from the jetty, cruising towards Pulau Undan.

Our eyes are fixed on the flock of birds perching on a tree top on the island.

With its yellow and orange long beaks, the beautiful birds have white bodies with black streaks on the side of its wings. They have pink and white tails. They are known as the Painted Storks.

It was a sight to behold as they moved gracefully. A few had twigs and grass clasped tightly in their beaks. They were nesting.

Somehow the presence of the cruise boat and its passengers did not seem to bother them. It was the continuous flicker of the cameraman’s shutter that caused them to fly away momentarily before coming back when they realised that the situation was safe.

A sharp cry from a child in a distant suddenly made us realise where we were.

We were not on any isolated island, away from the hustle and bustle of the city - we were in Shah Alam. And that island is named Pulau Undan, one of the two islands found in the middle of the Shah Alam Lake. We were on a cruise boat touring the Shah Alam Lake.

Watching the Painted Storks is part of the itinerary of the boat cruise recently introduced at the lake that is located in the city centre, near Kompleks PKNS.



Beautiful: The Painted Storks.

The cruise started from a jetty near Antan Batura Restaurant located in front of the Sirim building. It moved slowly, allowing everyone on board to enjoy the scenery around the lake.

Passengers were taken for a trip around the lake, with stops at the island which is also inhabited by peacocks, geese, ducks and variety of birds including waders like egrets and herons.

But the island is named Pulau Undan (Storks Island) because of the Painted Storks - the island’s main inhabitants.

The storks’ beautiful colour make them one of the favourite subjects to be captured on canvas and it is no wonder why they are named as such.

These birds, however, are not native to Malaysia. They were brought in from Sri Lanka in the 1960’s and being freshwater dependent, they survive better and have since then multiplied.

Those who have visited Zoo Negara might have seen them there.

Even at the zoo, these birds are not kept in an enclosure. They are free to fly around and have been spotted throughout the Klang Valley.

One such place that they call home is the Shah Alam Lake.

“A few dozens have made Pulau Undan their home and hopefully they will stay and become a permanent feature here.

“We do not interfere with their habitat and do not feed them as they find their food like fish and insects from the lake,” said MBSA’s public relations officer Shahrin Ahmad.

Soon the inhabitants will have another resident to share the island with. The city council is planning to introduce two pairs of spotted deer this month to lure more visitors.

The spotted deer, which are distinguished from the other species of deer which are raised for the meat, have a brown-reddish coat with white spots on its back. Its underparts are white.

“This lake and its features have potential to attract more visitors.”

A group of Singaporeans are scheduled to visit this month to view what the city has to offer. The city council is hopefull that they would promote the city and help bring in more visitors.

Shahrin added that offering the cruise was also part of efforts to provide healthy activities for the locals as well as tourists.

The cruise takes about half an hour around the man-made lake located at the city centre. During the ride, one can view the city’s landmark including the Kompleks PKNS, Sirim and Wet World water theme park.

The boat will pass the Laman Budaya, where regular cultural activities are being conducted on weekends, passing through the canal and under the bridge towards Tasik Tengah.

The Tasik Tengah (middle lake) has a more scenic view, This is where the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque or also known as Shah Alam Blue Mosque is located.

The boat stopped briefly to allow passengers to enjoy the scene and capture the images on their camera before moving on and passing by the floating restaurant and back to the jetty.

Shahrin said the boat service is available daily for a fee of RM5 for adults and RM3 for children between two and 12-years-old, The public can enjoy the service from 4pm to 7pm on weekdays and from 10am to 7pm on weekends.

The tickets are available at the jetty near the Antan Batura restaurant, infront of Sirim. The boat will move once it has a minimum of six people.

APEX Equity bangun projek RM55j



KUALA LUMPUR 14 Jun - AEH Capital anak syarikat APEX Equity Holdings Bhd. (APEX Equity) telah membangunkan projek kediaman Komuniti Berpagar Pesona Kemuning berhampiran Shah Alam bernilai RM55 juta.

Projek itu melibatkan pembinaan lapan blok rumah teres dua setengah tingkat meliputi keluasan binaan antara 1,399 hingga 4,994 kaki persegi.

Pengurus Projek AEH Capital, Kong Hock Kin berkata, projek pembangunan kediaman ini berbeza dengan projek yang lain kerana syarikat menyiapkannya dahulu sebelum menjual.

''Pembeli juga boleh mendiami rumah baru mereka dalam masa tiga bulan selepas menandatangani perjanjian jual beli rumah,''kata Hock Kin dalam kenyataan dikeluarkan di sini hari ini.

Pesona Kemuning terletak hanya 15 minit dari Jusco Klang dan 10 minit dari Subang Jaya serta mempunyai jaringan jalan raya seperti Lebuh raya Shah Alam (KESAS), Lebuh raya Persekutuan dan juga Lebuh raya Kemuning Shah Alam (LKSA) yang akan siap dibina tidak lama lagi.

Tambah Hock Kin, Pesona Kemuning merupakan pilihan lokasi yang baik untuk individu-individu yang ingin memiliki kediaman yang lebih luas pada harga berpatutan sekitar RM388,000 hingga RM788,000 untuk kediaman pegangan kekal.

''Tambahan pula, dengan kedudukannya yang berhampiran dengan LKSA yang akan siap dibina tidak lama lagi, ia hanya akan mengambil masa 10 minit untuk ke Pusat Bandar Shah Alam, Subang Jaya dan Klang,'' jelasnya.

Pembinaan Fasa 2 Komuniti Berpagar Pesona Kemuning akan bermula pada suku ketiga tahun ini, yang meliputi 38 unit rumah teres dua setengah tingkat dan dijangka siap dibina menjelang 2012.

Maklumat lanjut mengenai Pesona Kemuning boleh menghubungi AEH Capital di talian 03 - 8734 1323, atau S. K. Brothers Realty (M) Sdn. Bhd. iaitu ejen pasaran yang dilantik untuk projek ini di 03 - 7960 3888.
