City peninsula prepares for development
Sunday, 06 March 2011 19:50
Jeremy Mullins and Soeun Say

Snow’s bar has long been a refuge for expatriates and locals wishing to escape Phnom Penh’s city centre and enjoy a drink by the Tonle Sap.

But the makeup of the business community around its home in Chroy Changvar is changing, as multi-million dollar developments gather pace on the capital’s peninsular.

The relaxed atmosphere across the Cambodian-Japanese Friendship Bridge first attracted Ian ‘Snow’ Woodford to set up his bar – officially called Maxine’s – on the riverbank about six years ago.

“I love Chroy Changvar. It’s a close-knit community,” he said.

“You’ve definitely got the whole twist [of residents].”

However, Woodford has seen the area change in recent years, with developers entering what was formerly a quiet area on the capital’s outskirts.

Cham fishermen are now living in close proximity to large-scale construction sites.

Sung Bonna, president of the National Valuers Association of Cambodia, said there was a simple reason why Chroy Changvar is so popular – its location.

“The peninsula is the best location in the world, because the river is on two sides. It’s a great view,” he said today.

A mix of large and small projects are now underway, with land prices now hovering between US$800 and $1,200 per square metre, he added.

Lao Tip Seiha, director of the Construction Department at the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction, said the peninsula’s prime location was attracting a wide assortment of investors.

“We have lots of developments at the riverside. They are coming from Korea and Japan, and especially [include] local investors.”

Developers are optimistic about the peninsula’s potential with hotels and apartment complexes already springing up.

Work on the 16-storey, 799-room Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel – which the owners have claimed will cost $100 million – is ongoing at Chroy Changvar’s southern tip.

“We have completed three stories, along with the basement,” said a Sokha official today, who requested anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to The Post. “We will complete the project this year, and open in the beginning of 2012.”

Chroy Changvar Commune Chief Pich Saroeun said there are several other large projects slated for the area.

South Korea’s Booyoung Khmer Company plans to build a commercial centre complete with condominiums opposite the Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel development, he said, though work had not yet started.

Construction on the 16-storey, $30 million Bellevue apartment project is underway by Japan’s Arakawa Company.

Local residents say they are profiting from the rash of development, though some admit to being worried about the future.

Hok Vannak has owned a house opposite the Sokha Hotel site for five years. She said her husband is employed as a construction worker at a nearby development, but added the family was likely to move elsewhere when the building opened.

Officials had already approached her asking to buy her house, aiming to tear it down to construct a park for hotel guests to enjoy.

“This area will become very famous, and my family will move to another area,” she said.

Next door, 55-year old Yim Saykey has taken advantage of the nearby development by opening a small business selling food and cooking fuel to construction workers.

However, she too said her family plans to eventually leave.

“The rental price is expensive – $200 a month,” she said.

“We will have to move if the owner increases it further.”

Further north along the peninsular, residents of a Cham community have reported business people targeting their homes.

Some 5,000 Cham Muslims live in the area located next to the Japanese bridge, with life centred around four mosques.

Imam Haji Muhammad, the head of one local mosque, has lived in the community since 1979, when he returned from forced relocation near the Thai border following the downfall of the Khmer Rouge regime.

He said his community had been approached by developers seeking to buy the land.

About 113 families, all without land titles, are already set to move from the riverside to make way for a new park.

But most residents held land titles and were free to sell when they wish, he said.

“Last year, we met interested investors, but how can we sell?” he said.

“We have temples, houses. Even though they offer a good price, we don’t want to move.”

But despite that viewpoint, the Imam allowed that the community could be lured to relocate in the future – provided the price is right.

Ly Ro Thy Ash, 35, is the matriarch of one of the 113 families set to relocate.

She expects to move around the time of Khmer New Year, though she said she is worried as to whether she would receive compensation.

Her husband is a fisherman, earning between $5 and $10 a day – income that will be difficult to replace, she said.

“I asked for $5,000, but I don’t know how much [I will receive] yet,” she said.

Pich Saroeun told reporters the villagers would receive compensation for their property, adding commune officials were now in contact with city hall over the issue.

Sitting at Snow’s bar, Woodford reflected on the changing face of Chroy Changvar, including its increased traffic thanks to lorries ferrying construction supplies to the area.

The community has endured a lot, he said, but recent changes were generally for the best.

“It’s progress. I think it’s great,” he said.

Stock exchange boosts Canadia Tower rentals
Wednesday, 16 March 2011 15:01
Soeun Say

Canada Tower has benefited from the Cambodia stock exchange naming it as the bourse’s first home, an official said yesterday, with new clients including multinational giants drawn to the Phnom Penh skyscraper.

Around 80 percent of office space available at the nation’s tallest building has now been rented, according to Pen Phyrun, marketing manager of Mega Asset Management Co, the property unit of tower owner Overseas Corporation Investment of Cambodia.

This marks a rise on the 60 percent occupancy record in December, the same month that the Securities and Exchange Commission of Cambodia agreed to rent the tower’s 25th and 26th floor to temporarily house the exchange.

“After the SECC came to our place, we got a lot of clients to rent here and we also has confirmed a lot of clients [wanting] to book the space,” he said, declining to reveal how long the contract is set to last.
The bourse’s long-term home is touted to be in Camko City, Phnom Penh.

“Our client came from local and international company such as Cambodia, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Japan, USA, Australia and China,” he said.

Among the firms which have signed contracts to move into the building are Sojitz Corporation from Japan, a construction consultant from the UK, British accountancy body ACCA Cooperation with Cambodian accountancy trainer CamEd, and French communications giant Alcatel-Lucent.

The Bank of China is already stationed in the skyscraper.

“We’re going to sign more contracts with our clients soon as they already confirmed to rent our place.

“Our office space almost full, we hope that our place will full for next few months,” said Pen Phyrun.

Canadia Tower, which opened in November 2009, has put 10,724 square metres of work space up for rent at around US$25 per square metre. Keuk Narin, general manger of the Bonna Realty Group and secretary of the National Valuers Association, said yesterday that Canadia Tower benefitted from its prime location and good pricing.

“In only one year they can get clients [to rent] between 70-80 percent of their space - it is not a problem, they are successful,” he said.

Canadia Tower is currently Phnom Penh’s only Grade A office space.

But it is set to be joined by the Phnom Penh Tower which is scheduled to open next month in the capital.

Of the14 Grade B buildings in the capital, occupancy lies at around 75 percent, according to the National Valuers Association.

“In this year, we noted that occupancy rate increased because a lot of investors came here,” said Keuk Narin.

Canadia Tower is also home to the headquarters of Canadia Bank.
