Hunza eyes RM1.4bil revenue from 3 mixed developments

Property News/ 22 September 2013 Leave a comment

Hunza Properties Bhd expects about RM1.4bil in revenue from its three mixed development projects in Tanjung Bungah, Seberang Perai and Kepala Batas over the next three years.

Executive chairman Datuk Khor Teng Tong said Hunza would be focusing on its key property market in the northern region where the group has about 364.2ha of landbank.

He said these three projects – Alila 2 in Tanjung Bungah, the Juru projects in Seberang Perai and Bandar Putra Bertam in Kepala Batas – would contribute significantly to the group’s revenue over the next three years.

“With the robust Penang property market and the increasing demand for the state’s properties, we foresee that revenue contribution from these three projects will be around RM1.3bil to RM1.4bil in the next three years,” he told reporters after an analyst briefing on the group’s financial results yesterday.

Khor explained that the Alila 2 projects, with a gross development value (GDV) of RM450mil, would have two blocks of 270 residential units on four hectares of land in Tanjung Bungah.

He said the 14.5ha in Juru would comprise residential units, hypermarket, hotel and two-storey shoplots, while the Bandar Putra Bertam projects with a GDV of over RM200mil would comprise residential terraced and commercial units.

“All these projects will be launched within the next three years as construction work is expected commence in 2014,” he said.

On Hunza’s Bayan Baru land, he said the group was currently in the process of relocating the estimated 800 squatter households, and the project was expected to commence in 2016.

Meanwhile, Khor said he was optimistic that the Gurney Paragon Mall would achieve full occupancy next year from the current 75% to 80%, citing the positive market and demand from prospective tenants as Gurney Paragon Mall offers a different experience of shopping and entertainment in the heart of Gurney Drive.

“We are confident of achieving 98% to 100% next year, as the mall is fully managed and owned by Hunza, a Penang-based developer, thus giving confidence to potential tenants,” he said.

Located along Gurney Drive, the iconic development on a 4.08ha piece of freehold land was launched on July 23. It offers premium lifestyle shopping, and houses al-fresco dining areas with leading international retailers built around the restored St Joseph’s Novitiate, a heritage building with unique architecture. – Bernama

    Are you sure younare proud? Rumours has it that he is going to sell it to Capitaland. Anyway, even if its a false rumour, just ask around the tenant there. They will tell you how bad their business was. The only tenant with good business is those F&B.

    It is bad news if they are going to sell it to capitaland. Which
    make most of the malls are controlled by capitaland in Penang.

    Jennie :Hi,
    Does anybody know where will this Juru project to be located?

    They want to develop Juru? Where? If true, this is a good news to change the landscape of Juru. Not easy to develop Juru area due to traffic congestion, road is too narrow, foreigners placement and chicken farms. Whatever it is i believe with this developer reputation.

    The road leading to my Residency Cendana is very wide, but traffic congestion from the Perkampungan Juru towards Juru Light Industrial i would say its a madness due to the narrow road and traffic light. The current road and flyover leading to Juru Light Industrial will be not enough to cater during peak hour.

    Along Jalan Kebun Baru Juru starts from traffic lights the road is too narrow but width up to Residency Cendana then back to narrow until Juru Heights and stuck there. Width of the road just in front of the Residency Cendana. what I know in this area is too many foreigners

    For those buying properties in mainland, just take note.

    “…..With high-voltage power lines, the structure is believed to produce electromagnetic field (EMF) that is hazardous to people’s health. The exact measure of radiation exposure can be calculated by the voltage, current levels and distance from the property.

    There have been a few case studies linking the home distance with detrimental health effects. The majority of experts advise pregnant women to stay away from such places to avoid possible health risks. If one still thinks of buying, then it’s best to acquire an EMF meter to test out the radiation exposure yourself….”
