Transforming Port Dickson


PORT DICKSON is set to undergo a major transformation to become a revitalised, vibrant tourist attraction as TSR Capital Bhd has invested more than RM1bil for a waterfront project in the seaside town.

Datuk Wan Abd Razak Ismail, director of TSR Ocean Park Sdn Bhd, said that the project, to be completed within 10 years, will feature a modern and sophisticated concept to boost tourism in Malaysia. TSR Ocean Park is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TSR Capital.

“This project’s emphasis is more towards in-bound tourism and I believe PD has the potential to be developed into a wonderful tourist destination,” Wan Abd Razak said.



The project: TSR Bina Sdn Bhd Group accountant Ng Kim Keong (left) and Datuk Wan talk about the proposed master plan for the waterfront project.

“Tourism is the seventh-largest contributor to the Malaysian economy, contributing RM37.4bil to gross national income last year.

“It is definitely not a blind investment as this project will revamp the coast of PD,” he said.

The PD Waterfront project, a fully integrated development covering 60 acres, will feature shopping, food and beverage, accommodation, and entertainment outlets aimed at drawing tourists and locals alike.

The total gross development value (GDV) of the whole project is expected to reach RM1.07bil.

In the first phase of the project, with a supermarket, restaurants and beach front retail shops, has already been completed. Restaurants and franchise businesses such as, McDonald’s, Tutti Frutti, Dominos’ Pizza, Papparich, and restaurants offering foreign cuisine have opened for business.

Another 64 units of shophouses are near completion, with 70% allocated for non-bumiputera investors. Once completed the shophouses will offer up to 130,000 sq ft of leasable space.

According to Wan Abd Razak, previously there had been not much improvement in terms of property values in PD and there were few investors interested in the area.

“We hope that this project, which is categorised by the Federal Government as a public-private partnership project, will revive the situation to create more confidence in investors,” he said.

“Once the investors become interested in the area, it will accelerate the whole development, creating critical mass for the project,” he said.

Moving forward, the company is proposing to develop serviced suites, hotels and a range of small office/flexi office units by the end of the year to cater for the growing number home buyers, young professionals, investors as well as tourists who come to Port Dickson.

The waterfront project incorporates state-of-the-art designs and makes use of the coast to feature a waterfront promenade, floating villas and water chalets that exude a resort ambience.

Wan Abd Razak said the offerings will cater to contemporary lifestyles while creating a one stop attraction for tourist as well as locals.

“The development will change the image of the town and create a lot of job opportunities for locals and improve the income of the local population in terms of business,” he said.

“The enhanced features capitalising on the waterfront will definitely attract locals and tourists to go to Port Dickson during the weekends,” he said.

He added that the 150 to 200 units of serviced suites sized at 600 sq ft to 2,000 sq ft will feature unique designs and concepts.

The pricing for the serviced suites, with a GDV of RM90mil, will be announced when they are launched for sale.

The company also plans to develop a boutique hotel and harbour hotel just beside the sea with waterfront views to cater for tourists who wish to stay longer in PD.

The company said it will invest around RM40mil for one of the hotels before developing the next one.

There will also be a convention and function hall for special events.

“The new township will be the centre of attraction with enhanced facilities and infrastructure. This will increase the numbers of tourist visits each year and allow us to tap local spending power,” he said.

“We are also going to complement other projects and outlets by offering attractions to enhance the service sector.

“It is definitely a long-term investment and the project will bring a positive outcome to the area,” he said.

Called to the sales office and checked the pricing. Ranging from RM180k to RM500k. Seems a bit expensive in Port Dickson/Seremban area. But in Klang Valley today 300 -400k only can buy medium cost apartment. And this one not just in front of the sea and in a tourist hotspot. Decided to register for this coming launching for early bird discount. Think not going for my own residential, but for investment.

Port Dickson waterfront project progressing well

1/11/2012


NEW LOOK: Shopping malls, entertainment outlets, hotels set to transform area

PORT DICKSON: THE first phase of a RM1 billion waterfront project which will change the facade of this seaside town will be completed by year-end.

The project, which is 90 per cent completed, will transform the scenic town into a revitalised tourist attraction, TSR Ocean Park Sdn Bhd director Datuk Wan Abd Razak Ismail said.

"We expect the project to be completed within 10 years. However, we are progressing phase by phase and are hoping to bring forward the phases according to the demand," he said.

TSR Ocean Park is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TSR Capital.

The waterfront project, a fully integrated development covering 24.28ha of land, will feature shopping complexes, food and beverage outlets, service apartment and hotels, as well as entertainment outlets.

The total gross development value (GDV) of the project is expected to reach RM1.07 billion.

Razak said the project aimed to attract tourists, while also turning Port Dickson into a modern and sophisticated spot.

"The idea is in investing in a major revamp of Port Dickson. We believe that with this vibrant new look and development, investors will come in droves and accelerate development in the area even faster."

Razak said in the first phase, a waterfront supermarket, food outlets and 25 units of beachfront retail shops was open for business.

"This includes restaurants and franchises such as McDonald's, Dominos Pizza, Tutti Frutti and Korean food outlets."

He said 32 units of shophouses were already completed while another 32 were still in the pipeline.

The shophouses, in which 70 per cent were allocated for non-Bumiputera investors, are up to 130,000 sq ft.

Razak said TSR Ocean Park Sdn Bhd had also sealed an agreement with the government on the Public Private Partnership early last month.

The company, he said, had secured a RM57.4 million grant to build a waterfront resort as part of the project.

The facilitation fund, he said, which was given by the Public Private Partnership Unit under the Prime Minister's Department, would be used for upgrading works for the treatment of a stormwater drainage system within identified catchment areas in the Port Dickson town centre.

"This is crucial to provide better ambience for the people in Port Dickson."

He said the grant would also be used for the construction of a new ocean theme park and garden, hotel with 250 rooms and service suites, convention centre and 100 units of water villa chalets.

The company was also proposing to develop serviced suites, hotels and small office units by year-end to cater to the growing demand of house buyers, young professionals, investors and tourists.

The company, he said, was also planning to develop a boutique hotel and harbour hotel by the sea with waterfront views.

"It is a long-term investment, but every sen is worth spending."
