New Koh Pich city scaled model, near Phnom Penh (Photo: Cambodge Soir Hebdo)


19 Dec 2008
By Nhim Sophal
Cambodge Soir Hebdo


To attract new buyers, developers for the construction of the new Koh Pich (Diamond Island) city organized a sale promotion evening to try to sell apartments, buildings and villages. While the construction has not even started yet, lands and future buildings are already put to sale.

Koh Pich now covers 100 hectares. In 2006, the Khmer-Canadian OCIC (Oversea Cambodia Investment Company) company signed a $50 million 99-year lease with the city of Phnom Penh to develop and manage the island. The project was met with opposition from local inhabitants.

Now, with the mobilization of about 100 earth-moving equipments, grading works and the construction of a concrete river bank, as well as land filling up to an elevation of 11.75-meter (i.e. 0.7 meter higher than that of the city of Phnom Penh) have been completed.

Pung Sovan, OCIC director, announced to about one hundred participants at the Phnom Penh cultural center (Chenla Theater) that his company was looking for solutions and financing to undertake the development of this great ultra-modern city during a period of worldwide economic crisis.

“It is unfortunate that we did not launch the sale during a good period of economic growth,” Pung Sovan said while indicating the sales have started in December but they do not attract many buyers. The price of $1,500 per square-meter could be too high, OCIC has organized a new sale promotion with 35% price discount for its buyers. Another sale promotion to attract buyers: customers could pay the sale price during a 10-year period.

It's on the right of the model but it looks like the model only includes the base of the observation tower (the pyramid structures) and not the actual tower itself. Maybe the tower was too tall for the glass display case.

Dear kmr, I think it was you who posted a thread about Cambodia building in a Lao website (samakum),. I beg you not to post this kind of thread any more in that website,. you know there was a lot of debate about Khmer people who post a lot of things in that website and most posts they said Khmer people is just only want to show off how Cambodia is better than Laos in term of that building things,. Friendship among Cambodian and Lao has been turning bad because of that,. I think to what extend they are right that most of the post just only khmer want to boast Lao only to show how development of Cambodia is,.

For me those high buildings are not really show the development or Cambodia is better than Laos,. we have our own style and they have their own ways of development for their beloved country,. i think we should not spoi their spirit of that website.

Thanks

i really can not see 10% of these developments completed fully. i lived in phnom phen from 2006-7 and as a previous poster noted the first escalator was not in place until 2002.

the deals are been predominantly financed by korean development companies which have seen there currency devalued by 40% in comparison to cambodia which effectively used the usa dollar. the korean companies have seen their domestic asset values fall off the cliff and their borrowing options dwindle. most have pulled out or scaled back considerably. one of my friends in phnom phen works in a multi tenant office block, which had 20 korean tenants, all involved in construction, 10 have left already. the remainder are hoping for a quick return to liquidity and issuing brave press releases while partaking in skeleton work practices

my former boss is behind one of mid sized towers above and he is just trying to limit his losses and survive

anecodal evidence suggests that property prices have fallen 20-40% in the last 6 months and alot of these developments are priced on projected growth levels

corruption/greed is on a scale that most people do not comprehend. the korean government has issued an official notice to developers warning them about the number of companies that have been burned and returned home due to the continuous bribery requirements

education levels are also on a level you can not comprehend, most literate people were killed in the 70's, there children bribe for their results from primary school level and so never studied. international companies are always exceptionally disappointed with their office staff. the are adequate for an ecomony which in 10% tourism, 8% garment and 25% international aid but not for any other form of modern business that requires an office.


on a humanitarian level alot of these projects require large slum clearances. what that means, is that all land certificated were burned in the 1970's as the khmer rough moved all the inhabitants(3m) out of the city to partake in a agrarian revolution that lead to mass famine. people drifted back to the city and occupied what ever house/land they chose. now speculation has lead to the revision of land titles which mean that the army bully / torture / kill residents until the whole block is cleared. an extreme case is where residents on the site of one of the towers above were given $60 for their home and given a wetland 19km out of the city as a substitute, nightly army beatings ensured the clean land title. one development has seen the relocation of 50,000 people by force. very sad. but it is a country still rules by former khmer rouge

i hope that phnom phen's cityscape aspirations are not a falacy, but i think we will have to wait until the next building cycle to mature before major developments are undertaken again. there is a genuine need for housing a growing population and migrants to the city, but these people generally earn a dollar a day, so can not really afford plush tower blocks
