Ciputra Hanoi & Phnom Penh International City, advanced Property Project in Vietnam & Cambodia

[IMG]http://i43.************/i2newm.jpg[/IMG]

Ciputra Group currently has a two mega-project concept of integrated property in Southeast Asia, namely in Hanoi, Vietnam and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Surja Agus Widjaja, Director of Ciputra, express, Ciputra Hanoi International City is the only project advanced and largest property in Vietnam today. Therefore, a local developer has no experience developing similar projects.

"So we benefited from the experience of property development in Indonesia. We offer higher quality products from the side of the building and design. This is able to attract buyers there, "said Agus.

Not only homes and apartments, Managing Director of Ciputra Budiarsa Sastrawinata added to the project, Ciputra complete support infrastructure for the establishment of an integrated city, such as schools, hospitals, shopping centers, and sports and recreation facilities. "For the construction of the mall, we are targeting completion in 2012. We also have plans to build golf courses, "said Budiarsa.

In Hanoi, Vietnam, the project area of 301.8 hectares property (ha) called Ciputra Hanoi International City has a 11-storey apartment tower 20 and about 1,000 middle-class house-top.

Ciputra apartment appreciate it started than 200,000 U.S. dollars per unit, while home prices start from 300,000 U.S. dollars per unit. "Each tower consists of 150 apartment units," said Budiarsa.

Location of Ciputra Hanoi International City in the city center and near the International Airport and the CBD Noibai property Ciputra Hanoi makes it sells. Therefore, all property units, both apartments and houses that have been filled up. "High occupancy rates. When the building was standing, direct full, "said Budiarsa.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Just like in Hanoi, Ciputra also uses the concept of integrated property project Grand Phnom Penh International City. The first integrated city project is located in the State capital of Cambodia is occupying 260 hectares.

Currently, said Agus, 50 percent of the approximately 100 houses that have stood the purchaser will be handed over to this year. As information, the physical construction of the project has been running since the year 2007. Later, the owner of a house in Phnom Penh can enjoy the same facilities with the project in Hanoi. "(Facility) is almost the same, because we use the concept of an integrated city, too," he said.

To go to Vietnam and Cambodia, Ciputra took local companies to form joint ventures or joint ventures. Special Vietnam, Hanoi BUMD they took to form joint ventures, Citra Westlake City Dev Co.. Ltd. Under the agreement, Ciputra bear 70 percent of the total placements of capital, is its local partners to fill the remaining 30 percent.

"The division of profits following the placement portion of the capital. Indeed we are bigger, but those who provide land, building materials, and workers. We bring knowledge to live there, "he explained.

However, Agus reluctant to disclose how much the investment has poured into the project. In addition to the Southeast Asian region, through a joint venture Ciputra, Beyond Limit International Ltd. develop housing projects in Calcutta, India named Kolkata West International City. As for, the total investment value of housing projects covering 400 hectares was reached 330 million U.S. dollars.

Restoring the Kingdom's rails
THURSDAY, 06 MAY 2010 15:00 ELLIE DYER


Renovation project sees resurrection of capital’s rail station, track network

NEW life is being breathed into Phnom Penh Railway Station as a multi-million-dollar project to restore Cambodia’s decrepit rail system gathers steam.

Formally a graveyard for rusting Soviet-era locomotives, the site has been transformed into a hive of activity over the past few months as Toll Royal Railways (TRR) pours an estimated US$80,000 into renovating the Kingdom’s trains and freight stations.

Six locomotives – some armoured with thick metal sheeting and bearing the scars of Cambodia’s long civil war, a wood-fired steam engine, a passenger train and even the Royal carriage – are being refurbished in preparation for the launch of Cambodia’s new-look railway system in October this year, according to TRR officials speaking Wednesday.

The Kingdom’s rail system is undergoing a complete overhaul with $141.1 million in funding from the Asian Development Bank, AusAID and Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Companies (OPEC). It is hoped that the project will boost trade by improving the Kingdom’s railways, which were built in 1929 and last upgraded in the 1960s before civil war damaged much of the network.

“Cambodia’s railway was thought to be one of the worst networks in the world,” said David Kerr, TRR’s chief executive officer, speaking from his office nestled behind Phnom Penh’s iconic station, which opened in 1932.

According to anecdotal evidence, Kerr said, the last train to run the 264-kilometre track to Sihanoukville from Phnom Penh this year took 28 hours to reach its destination. The new service should take only eight.

But, the task of restoring the capital’s station to become a hub for a regular train service is huge.

“It was like a jungle when we first came here,” said Toll Royal Railways Chief Operation Officer John Guiry on Wednesday, wandering past rusting skeletons of freight carriages jumbled in heaps to the side of the railway site, which stretches for 4.5 kilometres.

Mountains of disused train parts were left to decay in the open, he said, as Cambodia ran a limited service, which, according to previous Post reports, garnered just $1.5 million in revenue in 2008.

However, as the railway project gathers pace, time and effort are being put into the enormous task of restoring ageing models from the Czech Republic, France and Russia to run on tracks, now being transformed across the country by development partners.

“Most of these trains are 40 to 50 years old. Many have been derailed or seen combat during the Khmer Rouge regime. We are removing armour plating,” Guiry said, pointing to the bullet holes in one locomotive.

Australia-based Toll has teamed up with the Royal Group in order to carry out the station project. So far, more than $1 million has been spent improving the Phnom Penh Railway Station site, which had fallen into disrepair. Copious white ant colonies have been wiped out, and more than 2,000 square metres of rubbish have been removed from the area.

Officials with TRR, which hopes to employ up to 670 people in the future, say the project remains on schedule.

Renovated trains are being test-run on 118 kilometres of track from Phnom Penh to Touk Meas, which services Kampot’s cement industry, and preliminary runs are imminent on parts of a 338-kilometre stretch of track leading to Battambang and [Poipet], Kerr said.

Surveys are also under way on the much-anticipated link between Vietnam and Cambodia, which has been billed as bridging a gap in the proposed Trans-Asia Railway (TAR) linking Singapore to Kunming, the capital of southwestern China’s Yunnan province.

Passenger service
The feasibility of running domestic passenger trains – one of which has been refurbished – is also being investigated, and there is an intention to protect Phnom Penh’s historic station from further damage in the rainy season. The wood-burning steam engine is being repaired for “special occasions”, according to Kerr and Guiry.

Limited freight service is set to begin in October, with trains from the capital running to Sihanoukville and Battambang in May 2011 and May 2012, respectively.

However, despite the progress, concerns remain.

Toll believes that for the railway to become tenable it needs direct access to the Sihanoukville Autonomous Port, which is set for renovation. Kerr called the project a “dead duck” if the link isn’t made, as without it the cost of freight transportation would spiral “dramatically”.

According to Kerr, the move is being stalled by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which is funding the port project.

“Negotiations are in progress between all parties,” Kerr added.

JICA representative Iwai Masaaki and an office spokeswoman declined to comment Wednesday. The spokeswoman stated that queries regarding the railway should not be directed at the organisation.

The future of the thousands of villagers who live in the “corridor of impact” around the railway is also being considered. According to a document produced by the government’s inter-ministerial resettlement committee, about 2,629 households live in close proximity to the railway tracks affected by the renovation throughout Cambodia.

A synopsis of a January meeting, carried out earlier this year to discuss relocation and compensation in Phnom Penh, showed that some villagers are concerned about the impact of relocation on their businesses.

So far, said Kerr, the track-side population has been enthusiastic about the plans. But whether this will prove the case as the relocation plan progresses remains to be seen.

City plans roads into BK site

Wednesday, 12 May 2010 15:04
Khouth Sophakchakrya

A REPRESENTATIVE of the company behind the controversial Boeung Kak lake development met with Phnom Penh municipal and district authorities on Tuesday about plans to build access roads into the secretive real estate project, officials said.

City Hall is planning to construct 12 new roads, each 20 to 50 metres wide, as part of infrastructure for the massive development, said Sok Penhvuth, deputy governor of Daun Penh district.

He said the site will be supported by four major access roads into the project: a northern road leading to Street 70, an eastern access point to Monivong Boulevard, a southern road to Russian Confederation Boulevard and a western branch out to Mao Tse Tung Boulevard.

Huot Hai, a deputy cabinet director at the Phnom Penh Municipality, said a recently approved master plan for the project – which has not been publicly released – calls for the site to be divided into separate business, residential, political and tourist zones.

“It will be able to promote the city to make it as famous as other regional countries,” he said.

A Post reporter was barred from attending Tuesday’s meeting. A veil of relative secrecy has shrouded the Boeung Kak lake project since 2007, when authorities announced they had signed a long-term lease of the 133-hectare site to Shukaku Inc, a private company headed by Cambodian
People’s Party Senator Lao Meng Khin.

Since then, area residents say they have been kept in the dark about plans for the project, which is expected to lead to the evictions of an estimated 4,000 families.

Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema could not be reached for comment Tuesday. Chan Na, a Shukaku representative, declined to comment after the meeting, and said only that City Hall is responsible for planning road infrastructure for the project.

In the past few years, authorities have filled in large swathes of the lake, and an estimated 1,000 families have been moved after accepting
compensation offers from the government.

Sok Penhvuth said authorities will continue to implore remaining families to move.

“We will make an effort to reconcile with people to volunteer to accept the compensation,” he said. “No one will be forced to move or be evicted from their homes due to the development of the Boeung Kak area.”

Many residents, however, are demanding that they be issued land titles in accordance with the 2001 Land Law – countering the government’s oft-repeated claims that the lake area is state-owned.

Residents like Sam Vanna, who believes her home will be demolished to make way for the development, say the government’s offer of US$8,500 in compensation or a plot of land on the outskirts of the city is unacceptable.

“We will not move from our homes,” she said. “We want to live close to the development.”

Housing rights advocates continued to deplore the secretive nature of the Boeung Kak lake development Tuesday.

A design given to some villagers last month, which showed skyscrapers and villas surrounding a significantly smaller lake area, was the first image they had seen of a development. City Hall officials later confirmed that they had approved a master plan for the project.

“There is so much secrecy,” said Sia Phearum, secretariat director of the Housing Rights Task Force.

“So far, they have never let civil society or even the villagers know anything about the development. It’s really stressful for them.”

Same here. Perhaps, this is the $88,000 one. Still, I don't like the lights on the wall and ceiling. Modern living nowaday does not use that kind of lights and its position anymore. This is too old of design. But, hey, $88,000, what else can we buy?
