KUALA LUMPUR: Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd is establishing a one-stop garment wholesale centre at a development cost of RM300mil.

The 22-storey Kenanga Wholesale City to be completed in three years, was located in the heart of the established Kenanga area well known for its wholesale fashion business, said group chief executive Yee Ia Howe.

Due to the inadequate trading area, entrepreneurs were unable to expand their business and space was lacking for newcomers, he said, adding that this had stagnated growth in the area.

“The development strategy for the Kenanga Wholesale City is to further expand the garment wholesale business,” Yee said at the soft launch of the three-acre project off Jalan Kenanga.yesterday.

The proposed development with a total gross built-up area of 1.8 million sq ft and net lettable retail area of 500,000 sq ft would offer 790 new business lots, double the current number of shop lots, thus providing more business opportunities, Yee said.

“The proposed units of 300 to 600 sq ft, at current market prices of RM1,980 to RM3,300 per sq ft, will provide good capital appreciation for buyers,” he said, adding that the project was 70% sold.

Kenanga Wholesale City would also provide facilities to supporting businesses such as express mailing and logistics, ATM banking service and moneychangers.

Yee said his management would also work with the Malaysia Garments Wholesale Exports and Import Merchants Association to explore business opportunities in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines.

“Garment wholesalers in Kenanga cater mainly to the local market. Exports make up only 30% of total trade. We hope to increase foreign trade by promoting Kenanga overseas,” he said.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen, who graced the soft-launch earlier, expressed confidence that the one-stop centre would help boost the tourism industry.

One-stop centre for garment wholesalers
by Gan Yen Kuan



KUALA LUMPUR: A RM300 million one-stop garment wholesale centre is under construction along Jalan Kenanga in the city centre to house garment traders under one roof.

The Kenanga Wholesale City would be developed by Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd (KWC) and completed in three years, said KWC group chief executive officer Yee Ia Howe.

Yee said the 22-storey building would have a gross built-up area of 1.8 million square feet (sq ft), net lettable area of 500,000 sq ft, and 1,800 parking lots.

The centre will have 790 new business lots and the size of the lots would be between 300 sq ft and 600 sq ft. The price of per sq ft ranges from RM1,980 to RM3,300.

“To date, we have achieved 70% in sales, with the first and second floors sold out. This shows the wholesale business has great potential,” he said after the soft launch of Kenanga Wholesale City here yesterday.

Yee said the centre would provide more business opportunities for everyone. Currently, the traders are unable to expand their business due to the lack of space.

The development cost of RM300 million excluded cost of the land bought from Tenaga Nasional Bhd. He declined to state the land acquisition price.

KWC is a sister company of Central Market Venture Sdn Bhd, which is the developer of Plaza Ue3 at Jalan Loke Yew.

Yee said AmBank (M) Bhd provides up to 90% financing to wholesalers, especially newcomers.

The management company of Kenanga Wholesale City would work with the Malaysia Garments Wholesale Export and Import Merchants Association to help wholesalers explore export opportunities in other Asian countries.

Deputy Finance Minister I Datuk Ng Yen Yen, who officiated at the event, said service-based economy accounted for 57% of the country’s gross domestic product, and the government was targeting to increase it to 75%.

The country’s textile and garment industry was forecast to attract RM900 million in investments per year between 2007 and 2020 and garment exports targeted to grow to RM24 billion in 2020.

Kenanga plans RM300m fashion wholesale mall
Thursday, January 24, 2008 By New Straits Times (by Chong Pooi Koon)



PRIVATELY-held Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd is spending RM300 million to build a 1.8 million sq ft fashion wholesale mall at Jalan Kenanga near Pudu Jail.

When completed three years from now, the 22-storey development will help ease congestion at the busy Kenanga area, where garment wholesalers have been operating from multi-level shoplots since the 1990s.

Kenanga Wholesale City chief executive officer Yee Ia Howe said the 790 units are between 300 and 600 sq ft, selling at RM1,980 to RM3,300 per sq ft.

YEE: Demand is so great that the mall was already 70 percent sold before the soft launch

Demand is so great that the mall is already 70 per cent sold before yesterday's soft launch, and some buyers were foreign garment makers.

"This shows the great potential in the domestic garment wholesale industry," he said when launching the showroom in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

He said the management will work with Malaysia Garments Wholesale Merchants Association to help wholesalers and garment manufacturers in opening regional markets like Indonesia, Brunei, southern Thailand, Taiwan and Singapore.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen said there are more than 200 fashion manufacturers in Malaysia, mostly small and medium-sized operators.

"By themselves they don't have the infrastructure to help them compete in the global market. We need a centre where purchasers can come and pick up eveything from clothes to accessories and go," said Ng, who officiated the event.

She said although the wholesale mall is a new concept in Malaysia, it is a proven success in Chinese cities like Shenzhen, Shenyang and Shanghai.

"It may not be easy to start this for Malaysia's small population. But Kenanga should also target foreign tourists, which currently spend only a quarter of their expenditure here on shopping," she said.

Kenanga Wholesale City hub for fashion products
Monday February 11, 2008 TheStar

THE Kenanga Wholesale City, which is earmarked for completion by early 2010, is poised to be a landmark hub for Kuala Lumpur's wholesale fashion and apparel business.

The complex, located on a 3.2-acre site in Jalan Kenanga off Jalan Loke Yew, will be the wholesale centre for fashion, costume jewellery and leather products.

“Besides raising the profile of Kuala Lumpur's wholesale business, the complex offers a destination for international buyers to buy the country's fashion products in bulk from local wholesalers,” Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd group chief executive Yee Ia Howe said.

Malaysia's total annual trade in garment and textile totalled some RM2bil. The country also exports over RM4bil worth of designer apparels.

Yee said his management would be working with the Malaysia Garments Wholesale Exports and Import Merchants Association to explore business opportunities in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Kenanga Wholesale City is developed by Central Market Venture Sdn Bhd, which is also managing the Kuala Lumpur Central Market.

The wholesale complex, with total gross floor area of 1.8 million sq ft, will have 790 retail lots of between 300 and 1,000 sq ft.

He said only 49% of the space would be available for sale at RM1,950 to RM3,300 per sq ft, while the remaining 51% would be leased at rental rates between RM10 and RM25 per sq ft.

The project will have an expected gross development value of RM1bil. Construction work will start in March and completion is targeted within two years.

“The complex will meet the dire need for additional retail space in the Kenanga area, which has grown into a wholesale fashion hub in the past 20 years.

Currently, there are 350 business operators in the surrounding three-storey shop lots on about 35 acres.

“We are capitalizing on this demand and we hope to offer a modern and comfortable alternative to the traditional shop lots in the area,” Yee said.

Buyers of the retail space will be offered an attractive leaseback option. Those who lease their lots to the company will be guaranteed an 8% annual rate of return for the first three years with option to extend by another two years.

“We are confident the complex will be fully tenanted as we have a growing list of potential tenants registered with us,” Yee said.

According to him, the company has given up saleable space to ensure there will be enough escalators, service lifts and comfortable walkways.

“We will also bring in necessary service providers such as courier companies, forwarding agents and ATM outlets to make it convenient for business owners.”

The top level of the complex will house convention facilities for events such as trade and fashion shows.

By locating the wholesale complex in the Kenanga area, Yee said the surrounding infrastructure would also benefit, including in better landscaping and widening of adjacent roads.

“We are optimistic that the local council will follow suit by upgrading neighbouring facilities as we will be replacing some rundown buildings with Kenanga Wholesale City.”

With more than 1,800 car parks and loading docks for lorries in the complex, the project would also ease the parking problem in Jalan Kenanga, Yee said, adding that traffic flow in the area should also improve.

Textile mega-mall taking shape
Monday, 15 December 2008 Sheila Sri Priya

after the groundbreaking ceremony for ‘Kenanga Wholesale City.’


Set to be the first garment textile mega-mall in Malaysia, it also aims to be the hub for the wholesale textile business in Asia.

The complex, which will have 950 shop lots and 1,800 parking lots, is expected to attract tourist from all over the world.

Federal Territories Deputy Minister Datuk M. Saravanan performed the ground-breaking ceremony.

He said the new development will create job opportunities and encourage entrepreneurship.

"Many of the existing businesses along Jalan Kenanga will take their garment business to the next level and move to this complex. The complex isn't built to compete with the existing shops but to meet the current demands. The complex is to cater more for the business community than end users. Cities like Dubai, Jakarta and Bangkok have their own textile hubs and we will soon have our own," said Saravanan.

He said by 2012, all roads will be upgraded in Kuala Lumpur, which will hopefully ease traffic congestion in the city.

Yee Ia Howe, group chief executive officer of Kenanga Wholesale, said Malaysia was full of shopping malls that cater to the end consumers, but was lacking in wholesalers.

Although the wholesale mall concept is new in Malaysia, it has been proven successful in Asian cities. Examples are Platinum Fashion Mall in Bangkok, Dongdaemun in Korea and Mangga Dua in Jakarta.

Garment wholesale vibrant
Monday January 19, 2009
By EDY SARIF

Kenanga Wholesale expects lucrative business at new centre

THE garment wholesale scene in Malaysia is still vibrant although it faces “a slight hiccup” due to the economic slowdown, said Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd group chief executive officer Yee Ia Howe.

“Business is still doing well in this area, getting busier everyday. In fact, the rental rates here have increased about 20% during this slowdown period,” he told StarBiz, referring to the garment wholesale centre in Jalan Kenanga, off Jalan Loke Yew in Kuala Lumpur.

“If you want to rent a shop here, the waiting list is two years. Even when the rental rate was increased just recently, tenants are still willing to pay to continue doing business here.

“That shows how vibrant the business is doing in this area,” Yee said, adding that rental rates there were quite competitive at about RM50 per sq ft.

The centre was established about 30 years ago for the wholesale business of clothes, fashion accessories, shoes and bags.

There are 400 shops at the Kenanga wholesale centre catering to retailers, fashion boutiques, shopping malls and the public.

Yee said about 70% of the products at the wholesale centre were for the local market and the balance exported to countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Brunei.

“Prices of the products here are half (of) what’s quoted in the ordinary shops or shopping malls. Here, if you want to buy clothes, you need to buy at least six pieces.

“This is what the wholesale concept is all about, buying in quantity,” Yee said, adding that all the goods were targeted at the medium and low-end market.

The bustling business at the Kenanga wholesale centre has led to parking problems, and coupled with demand for more shop lots, the owners of the centre decided to build a new 22-storey wholesale centre called Kenanga Wholesale City.

Scheduled for completion by end 2010, the project has a gross development value of RM800mil and sits on a 3.2-acre site beside the existing centre.

Demand was so good that all the units at the new centre were taken up during the groundbreaking ceremony of the development in December last year.

About 65% of the new units were taken by existing owners at the Kenanga wholesale centre and the remaining units by newcomers.

“We didn’t even advertise in any newspaper or TV to promote the new development. Yet the response was so good that we used only RM200,000 just for that event,” Yee said, adding that the company had allocated about RM8mil for advertising and promotion of the new building.

Yee said the current gloom and doom in the business world had resulted in negative sentiment, but not in the garment wholesale business, although he acknowledged that business might slow a little this year.

“We want to show people that if you have good planning, better location and good demand for your products, all these negative sentiments can be proven wrong,” he said.

Yee sees a softening of the garment wholesale market this year, but still expects the business to be profitable.

Kenanga Wholesale City offers 400,000 sq ft of total net lettable area with 1,800 parking bays.

It also has food and beverage outlets, a rooftop courtyard and a convention area for events and trade shows.

Construction work blamed for dry taps
2009/05/04

KUALA LUMPUR: The construction work of a 19-storey wholesale centre is causing frequent water supply disruptions in the Jalan Hang Tuah area.

Residents in the area said there had been frequent burst pipes due to the construction work in Jalan Gelugor.

They also fear that the water from the burst pipes would cause soil erosion.

Jalan Hang Tuah flats residents' association chairman Ismail Abdullah said while Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor was quick to repair the pipes whenever a complaint was made, the contractor should also be held responsible.


"The construction work started about four months ago but the problem became worse a month ago. We experience water supply disruptions at least two or three times a week.

"We want the developer to stop their ground work and focus on remedy work around the pipes before resuming their project. We fear that the road may give way due to the water from the burst pipes," he said during a peaceful protest staged by residents at the site.

Retiree Elizabeth Wong, 68, said it was inconvenient for her family as the water supply disruption would last for hours.

"A water truck would be sent to us whenever the problem occurs but I can't bring that many pails up to my unit on the 14th floor. Sometimes, I have to ask my neighbours to help me to bring the pails to the lift," said Wong.

Shop owner Yong Kok Leong, 46, said the tremor from the construction work had also caused cracks at his shoplot.

"The contractor came to repair the cracks in February and March, but is there any guarantee for our safety and will the developer compensate us should something happen to us or our property?"[/QUOTE]

A ray of light for Jalan Gelugor folk
BY PRIYA MENON

RESIDENTS of the Hang Tuah Flats as well as the business community around Jalan Gelugor, off Jalan Kenanga, in Kuala Lumpur will no longer face water supply disruption in their area.

For more than three months, the residents and traders have been facing frequent burst pipes caused by a new development called the Kenanga Wholesale City.

The entire area in Jalan Kenanga connects Jalan San Peng, Jalan Pudu and Jalan Gelugor which falls under both the Bukit Bintang and Cheras constituencies.

A local daily reported that the residents used to carry pails of water from a tank that was despatched whenever there was a water supply disruption.

The community also faced traffic congestion as the entire area is densely populated and this is made worse by the traffic flow along Jalan Meranti, which is the largest wholesale garment industry in the country.

Since construction began six months ago, the incoming lorries and road work have added to the congestion especially in Jalan Gelugor where the construction is taking place.

The residents who were fed up with the problems staged a protest recently to voice their displeasure with the developers.

Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun and Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai together with the developer and the Malaysian Garments Wholesale Merchants Association have come up with a solution for the residents and traders.

They held a press conference at the association’s centre located in Jalan Meranti 1, off Jalan Kenanga, yesterday to announce the plans.

“The developer has agreed to install pipes worth more than RM200,000, replacing the old ones that keep bursting due to earth movement,” Fong said.

He added that the piling work that should be completed within two weeks was the cause for the earth movement which resulted in the burst pipes.

Kenanga Wholesale City managing director Bernard Bong said they were waiting for approval to lay the new pipes.

“After getting the approval, the problem will be solved. The pipe measures 200m and we will begin as soon as we get the approval,” he said.

Bong also said they would be resurfacing the roads which were damaged by the lorries frequenting the area.

Tan said they also hoped to reduce the traffic congestion in the area by building a road that had been designated as a road reserve and had been named Jalan Lengkuas.

“Although the developer has agreed to bear half the cost of building the new road, I still think it is the Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s responsibility to do so,” Fong said.

The 30m road connects Jalan San Peng and Jalan Gelugor and runs parallel to the Ampang LRT line.

He added that he would immediately send a letter to the DBKL for the approval of the new link road.

Tan, on the other hand, said the DBKL’s monitoring mechanism was poor and they should take the initiative to watch all the new developments taking place in KL.

RM4b business within a year seen
By New Straits Times (by Vasantha Ganesan)

YEE: KWC hopes to not only double the value of the current business but to grow exports to a level that puts foreign and local demand on equal footing

The developer of Kenanga Wholesale City (KWC), a one-stop centre for garment wholesalers, believes that within a year of operation, its tenants will have transacted business valued at RM4 billion.

KWC is a wholesale market concept akin to Dubai's Gold Souk. It is being developed in the Pudu area of Kuala Lumpur.

The building, when ready in 2010, is expected to house most of the wholesalers already in the Jalan Kenanga area (behind the Jalan Pudu Fire Station) and to rope in new ones too.

Built by Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd, the 22-storey building will have a gross built-up of 1.8 million sq ft and a net lettable area of 500,000 sq ft.

The relocated retailers together with new players, including those in the shoe and handbag business, are also expected to spur export business.

"The Wholesale City's history began 20 years ago at Kenanga area with small wholesale businesses. (However) the area surrounding it is not that impressive, there is traffic congestion, lack of car park space, and loading and unloading is a constant problem," Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd chief executive officer and managing director Yee Ia Howe said.

"There are about 350 wholesale operators in the Kenanga area, who are operating from shophouses. Their current transaction value is about RM2 billion, of which 30 per cent is exported and 70 per cent is for the local market.

"With the Wholesale City, we will offer more space, including for newcomers," he said.

Yee added that KWC hopes to not only double the value of the current business but to grow exports to a level that puts foreign and local demand on equal footing.

"We expect business transaction to be RM4 billion within a year of operations," he said.

This will also be made possible by KWC working together with the Malaysia Garments Wholesale Merchants Association to promote the market overseas, targeting in particular Singapore, south Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, Brunei and the Middle Eastern countries.

Kenanga Wholesale will be built on a 1.29ha piece of land, which used to be the site for Tenaga Nasional Bhd staff quarters.

The new building will have a gross development value of RM1 billion.

About 70 per cent of the KWC space has already been sold, with 10 per cent of the buyers being investors who have leased their property back to the developer.

Yee expects some 792 retail lots, measuring between 300 sq ft and 600 sq ft to be taken up within the next four to six months.

KWC will also continue to hold some of the floors which translates into 51 per cent control of the mall space.

"This will ensure that the developer will be able to control and manage the property and safeguard the investment of the owners," he said.

Kenanga Wholesale City sells out before construction completes
Regional fashion wholesale centre is 100% sold prior to piling works
Jan 28, 2009
Source: http://www.iproperty.com.my/news/rea...ws.asp?nid=397

Kenanga Wholesale City, a regional hub for fashion located along Jalan Kenanga in Kuala Lumpur, was completely sold out even before construction began.

The RM300 million one-stop garment wholesale centre, which will house garment traders under one roof, has sold out and is now open for tenancy registration, said Yee Ia Howe, group chief executive officer of Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd.

The mall seems to appeal to investors and business owners although it is a new concept in the country. According to Yee, Malaysia lacks attention on wholesalers “who are the essential link in the chain of retail business.

“Kenanga Wholesale City is set to pool the various aspects that fall under the umbrella of Malaysian fashion wholesale, offering buyers a one-stop centre of merchandise including clothing, shoes, accessories, costume jewellery and other related goods,” said Yee.

The development offers more than 750 lots and 500,000 sqf of net lettable retail space. While it is dedicated to wholesale businesses only, the project also functions as a shopping mall with full amenities catering to business convenience with F&B outlets, event spaces, ATM banking and a range of other business services. It is slated for completion in early 2010.

The developer, Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd, is part of an expanding group of companies that includes Kha Seng Corporation Sdn Bhd and Central Market Sdn Bhd.

Residents living nearby complain that the construction of the 19-storey
wholesale centre has caused frequent water disruptions in their area.


KUALA LUMPUR: Residents and traders in Jalan Hang Tuah can expect their water woes to be over soon.

Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd, the developer of a 19-storey wholesale centre in the area, has agreed to replace the old water pipe.

It was reported yesterday that the residents and traders had been facing frequent water disruptions due to the construction of the wholesale centre in Jalan Gelugor.

Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd managing director Bernard Bong said the company would replace the 40-year- old pipe after getting City Hall's approval to lay a new pipe.


He said once the permit had been approved, work to lay the pipe should be completed within one week.

"The pipe that is running along Jalan Hang Tuah is old, eroded and needs to be replaced.

"We hope that City Hall will approve our permit fast, so that we can start work on the pipe," he said. Bong was speaking at a press conference held at the Malaysian Garments Wholesale Merchants Association yesterday.

Bong also said that the company would look into resurfacing all the roads that had been damaged by its lorries.

On the issue of traffic congestion in the area, Bong said there was a road reserve which ran parallel to the railway tracks in Jalan Gelugor which needed to be developed.

He said that Kenanga Wholesale City Sdn Bhd is willing to bear half of the cost of building the road if City Hall approves the project.

"We hope that City Hall can work together with us to build the road," said Bong.

Once completed, the new road will connect Jalan Gelugor to Jalan San Peng.

Bukit Bintang member of parliament Fong Kui Lun said he would write to mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail to get the approval to build the road.

The main textile merchants of Kuala Lumpur

This project is interesting for its unusual and most historic location, famously known for many many years as a place where all of the main textile merchants of Kuala Lumpur would come to trade their wares, but also for its most unusual scale, a structure that is almost virtually 23 stories tall, over 1 million square feet of gross area, for which at least half are retail lots. Almost everything traded in these stores are textile based products, jewellery stores and small items catering for the local fashion entrepreneurs. Similar centres exists elsewhere in the region, but this would be Kuala Lumpur's first.
