Property News/ 14 February 2011 Leave a comment


Mah Sing Group Bhd (8583), Malaysia's fifth largest property developer by revenue, is ready to roll out RM3 billion worth of new launches this year on positive domestic economic outlook.

Group chief executive and managing director Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum said he was bullish on sales moving fast paced as ripple effects from recent government initiatives will bring more to buy properties.

Speaking to Business Times, Leong said initiatives under the Economic Transformation Programme and 10th Malaysia Plan should boost property demand with expected increase in job creation, urbanisation, the standards of living and income level.

He expects wealth creation from the local stock market to also have an impact on the property sector as gains are invested in physical properties.
"The property market has done well in 2010 and we are confident that the momentum is sustainable into 2011 as the current buying pattern is backed by fundamentals of the economy and purchasers," Leong said.

Leong feels there will be sustained demand in mid-tier to high-end properties, both landed and high rise in the residential, commercial and industrial segments.

Mah Sing's new launches will comprise a mix of landed residential, niche size serviced residences, shop offices, retail units, small office/home office and industrial.

Leong said projects featuring lifestyle elements and community living with facilities like a clubhouse and pool will continue to do well.

To meet the demand in this segment, Mah Sing will offer Garden Residence in Cyberjaya, Kinrara Residence in Puchong, One Legenda and Hijauan Residence in Cheras, and Legenda@Southbay on Penang island.

These projects will feature superlink homes, semi-detached homes and bungalows.

Mah Sing will also offer smaller units for serviced residences and condominiums in the second half of this year to provide easier entry for investors, leading to higher take-up rates. Here, it will roll out M-City@Jalan Ampang, Leong said.

The company will also launch Icon Residence and Ferringhi Residence in Penang, and Austin Suites in Johor Baru, Johor.

For commercial projects, Mah Sing intends to launch Star Avenue in Damansara, and Icon City in Petaling Jaya in the first half of this year.

Meanwhile, the third industrial project under the iParc series, iParc3@Bukit Jelutong, will be launched by mid-year.

Leong said in line with the company's strategy of a fast turnaround, it will preview these new projects soon, while scouting for prime land.

"Although our landbank is enough to sustain us for the next seven years, we are looking for sizeable pieces of land and we have the balance sheet to fund the acquisition," he said.

Mah Sing, which has a cash pile of RM233 million, made 10 land transactions involving 118ha for RM756 million last year.
