Mah Sing expects 2008 to be a good year
Friday October 26, 2007

KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Group Bhd managing director Datuk Leong Hoy Kum is confident that 2008 will be a prosperous year for the property market and the company as well.

“We believe the property market will do well, underpinned by interest from foreigners and increased domestic demand, especially in medium to high-end residential and commercial projects,” he said.

Leong said the spillover projects from the Ninth Malaysia Plan, low unemployment and high savings rates, and the sustained economic growth momentum would all contribute to the property market's positive run.

“This would be boosted further by recent property incentives announced in the 2008 Budget, and Mah Sing will implement several complementary measures to benefit home buyers,” Leong told reporters after the company EGM yesterday.

To complement the Government's 50% stamp duty exemption for the purchase of homes under RM250,000, Leong said the group would be subsidising the remaining 50% stamp duty for the purchase of Mah Sing homes.

The recently announced increase in the Employees Provident Fund dividend could potentially open up more than RM9bil for the property market to tap, he added.

Group chief financial officer Steven Ng Poh Seng said the local property market would be unaffected by the slowdown in the current US economy.

“The US dollar may be weakening, but our ringgit will strengthen because we have a healthy economy,” he said.

The residential and commercial developer currently has 10 ongoing projects, of which four will be launched next year, including The Icon Mont' Kiara, a commercial development cradled within Mont' Kiara and Sri Hartamas; Duta Perdana, a township in Puchong; Southbay Penang, a mix of residential and commercial components on the island;and the Southgate Commercial Centre, a medium-rise office tower block opposite the group's headquarters.

Leong said response to Southbay Penang had been overwhelming, with up to 1,500 reservations received for the commercial/residential units on offer.

He said the group was also confident of robust sales for Southgate, citing the first phase of d7, YTL Land & Development Bhd's debut commercial development in Sentul East, which sold all 100 units in just one hour.

Leong also said the group was planning to expand to east Malaysia.

“Sabah and Sarawak are states with the highest growth rates in Malaysia. Now is the right time for the cities there to upgrade. We would like to replicate and improve our current designs in east Malaysia.”

The Signature Tower

The 27-storey signature tower design comprising Corporate Designer Suites is innovatively designed to be energy efficient, to optimize natural daylight but shielded from direct sunlight, particularly the hot western sun.

It exudes a chic ambience in line with the evolving concept of an urban working lifestyle. A voluminous porte cochere entrance to The Icon Mont’ Kiara sets the scene to welcome guests into an inviting reception. Hallmark high volume ceilings portray a sign of soaring business aspirations and achievements while stone flooring imparts a sense of corporate stability and efficiency. At the foyer area, a business centre takes care of essential business needs, supplemented with boutique service retailers.

As an integrated development, The Icon, Mont’ Kiara is connected to the 3-storey low-rise retail podium with horizontal links to access the SkyGardens and SkyLounge. A multi-purpose space is designed to hold exhibitions and private functions.

A series of SkyGardens will be built on the north façade. With calming sounds of water features enveloped in shallow reflection ponds, these 3-storey colume ceiling SkyGardens are the perfect venues for a short break and also to casually interact with clients or associates.

A SkyLounge with transparent glass façade sits at the penthouse level. Lighted at night, amidst reflective pools, the effects would be stunning like the sparkle of sapphire. This alfresco roof-top lounge with a panaromic view is the perfect place to chill out and will be a vibrant centrepiece for the locality.

The Central Plaza – An avenue of resort-style facilities

A central plaza located at the western side is beautified with lush tropical landscape and adorned with water features leading to endless shops and offices. Architectured for a breezy feel, it makes a memorable venue for concerts, art festivals or open-air dining at night.

The Retail portion

There will be 3 levels of retail outlets and other leisure activities which can service and enhance the work environment. The design will feature generous glazed facades at the lower levels for window displays, whereas the upper level façade will compliment the signature tower to project an integrated appearance. The central plaza will be semi-enclosed, a design feature which will assist in heat dissipation upwards, and draw airflow at the lower levels, thus creating natural cross ventilation and a pleasant breeze.

I think that the problem of this project is the fly-over bridge next to it and also the high power cable line. Many buyers might not like it. But cool ideas or investment intention might sell it. Hoped this project do well.

The Icon Residence sees over 1,500 registrants
By Lam Jian Wyn of
Monday, 08 March 2010 17:57

KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Group Bhd’s maiden residential high-rise venture The Icon Residence (pictured) at Mont’Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, has received over 1,500 registrants of interest since initiating a registration campaign in early January, said group deputy chief operating officer (COO) Teh Heng Chong.

“The registrants are Malaysians as well as foreign investors,” he told

Sporting a unique façade purportedly inspired by Mediterranean cliff-side resort towns, the project, with a gross development value of RM279 million, is slated for a soft launch in mid-May.

Targeted at 35-year-olds within the professional and business circles as well as young families. “We are confident that this new project, with its strategic location and vibrant neighbourhood, will be able to address the pent-up demand for niche-sized serviced suites at value pricing,” Teh added.

Apart from its unique façade, The Icon Residences will also feature 24-hour cutting edge security and comprehensive facilities, he said.

The development offers 300 partially or fully-furnished units on 2.57 acres of freehold land. The units range in size from 850 to 1,800 sq ft, to complement the existing high-rise offerings of larger units, said Teh. The Icon Residence’s indicative pricing is between RM750 to RM900 psf.

“We shall commence construction once we obtain the necessary approvals, which we anticipate to be by end-2Q or early 3Q2010,” said Teh.

Premised on “luxury garden terraces in the sky”, the serviced suites will be housed in uneven blocks interspersed with gardens and connected by bridges. “The design will do away with the long linear effect of the block mass,” he explained.

The Icon Residence is a reconfiguration of what was initially a commercial project The [email protected]’Kiara. To recap, Mah Sing subsidiary Maxim Heights Sdn Bhd had on Nov 3, 2009, called off the en bloc sale of The [email protected]’Kiara for RM285.4 million, to Prompt Symphony Sdn Bhd.
