Mayfair super condo 50% sold

BY DAVID TAN IN PENANG

LEADER Universal Holdings Bhd has sold 50% of its Mayfair super-condominium project at Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, popularly known as Millionaire?s Row.
Group managing director Sean C.H. H?ng said the 5,000 sq ft units, priced from RM1.7mil onwards, were sold to overseas investors.

?The properties were sold during the soft launch about two months back. We will be officially launching the project very soon,? he told reporters after the company AGM here yesterday.
H?ng said the project, scheduled for completion at the end next year, was about 30% completed.
The 29-storey Mayfair project, a joint-venture between Leader and a Singapore-based company, has a gross sales value of about RM85mil. Leader holds a 65% equity stake in the project. Located on a 70,000 sq ft site, Mayfair comprises 49 super-condominiums.
H?ng said the group had also recently sold 50% of phase 2 of the Leader Garden housing scheme in Tanjung Bungah, comprising 67 landed properties such as terrace and semidetached houses, and bungalows.
H'ng said the group had also generated RM13mil from disposing of undeveloped properties on the island.
?The proceeds will be used as working capital for property development and to settle bank loans,? he said.
And in line with the group?s streamlining policies, Leader had recently closed two of its overseas operations - its wire and cable manufacturing facilities in the Philippines and Singapore.
?In the Philippines, we closed because of difficult market conditions, while in Singapore it was related to the high cost of operations.
?What we intend to do now is to export to the Philippines and the other Asean countries from our manufacturing base in Malaysia.
?We have converted our manufacturing business in Singapore into a trading operation, which sells the group?s wires and cables manufactured in Malaysia.''

city stadium also completed!!

Facelift completed after three years

By DERRICK VINESH

AFTER being closed for more than three years for major renovation work, the 47-year old Penang City Stadium in Lorong Kulit will re-open its doors tomorrow (Thursday).

The timber-structure grandstand of the 13,000-seater stadium has been replaced by an elegant three-storey concrete complex which is fully air-conditioned.

Renovation work on the grandstand complex costing RM13mil,
was initially to have started in 1997, but was deferred due to the economic slowdown.

It finally kicked off in March 2001 and was scheduled for completion by June 2002.


The renovated City Stadium in Penang

But, the project was delayed due to utility cable installation problems and the temporary relocation of traders from the adjacent flea market to the stadium car park in Perak Road.

It further hit a snag in September 2001 when the contractors stumbled upon tantalum believed to be worth several million ringgit on an area measuring 2,240 sq m inside the stadium.

The council, then awarded a tender for RM1.42mil to Sya-rikat Kuala Ketil Metal Sdn Bhd to prospect for the tantalum.

Now, the stadium stands out majestically, like a grand old dame that underwent a heavy facelift.

It boasts a spacious lobby area, proper parking bays for coaches and ticketing booths on both ends of the main entrance in Lorong Kulit.

Penang Municipal councillor Khoo Kay Hean said that in 2000, the council spent RM1.9mil to re-turf the field and construct a new synthetic track.

?The new grandstand complex was carried out under Phase I of the project which saw an increase in the number of seats from 1,500 seats to 2,004 seats.

?The 2,004 seats comprise 1,860 terraced seats and 144 VIP seats,? he said.

Khoo, who is council landscape, beautification and recreation committee member said the council had budgeted RM18mil for Phase II of the project which would include replacing the plank terrace seats encircling the stadium with bucket seats according to FIFA standards.

?The second phase will kick off in January next year. It will take 18 months to be ready,? he said, adding that the side entrances in Datuk Kermat Road and Perak Road would also be expanded under Phase II.


Khoo said for the time being, spectators were provided with 300 parking lots at the flea market trading site until a proper multi-storey car park complex was built in Perak Road.

He added that a section from the rectangular-looped Lorong Kulit was fenced up and permanently closed to traffic to allow VIP cars to be parked at the main entrance.

Mohd Khairi Zakaria, the principal architect of KZ Arki-kraf Sdn Bhd, the project architect, said he conceptualised the three-storey grandstand complex design to depict a community building concept rather than one that was overly artistic.

?We have converted the ground and first floors of the grandstand into the lobby area for other use such as dinner gatherings, exhibitions and concerts.

?We also chose large glass panels with louver-like structures that reduce the evening sun glare to make it more transparent and welcoming,? he said.

Mohd Khairi said the ground floor grandstand complex housed two judges rooms, two changing rooms, two interview rooms, two surau, two lifts, a dope-testing room, a first-aid room and two secretariat rooms.

The first floor, he said, housed a VIP lobby, two office units, toilets and an area to sell pre-cooked food.

The second floor, he said, housed a glass box VVIP lounge, an open lounge for disabled people, two media rooms and six viewing rooms which were for rent.

Mohd Khairi said that four mammoth-size floodlights had been recently installed while a RM3mil electronic scoreboard, would soon be put up.
