Damansara Perdana to see new wave of development

MK LAND Holdings Bhd is planning a new wave of development at its integrated Damansara Perdana township in Selangor and this includes the launch of more than RM5 billion worth of properties over the next decade.

While the company is targeting purpose-built buildings to enhance its margins, its focus for the next 10 years will be to develop Armanee Terrace Condominium and Rafflesia for RM3.5 billion, its chief operating officer for central region, Fatimah Wahab, said.

Launches at Damansara Perdana have been slow since 2007, as MK Land was consolidating its position to focus on other key aspects of its operations.

Since July 2008, a repositioning was carried out with the view to bring the company to a better strategic and financial position to meet the challenges ahead.
The township, which is 44 per cent developed, has accumulated sales in excess of RM2 billion since its launch in 1996.

Fatimah told Business Times that she is optimistic that the luxurious Armanee Terrace and Rafflesia projects, which are supported by a high-end integrated security system and surrounded by greenery, will be the main driving force for growth at Damansara Perdana.

The township has received encouraging response from home owners and investors due to its offerings and location, being in the prime area of the Damansara Perdana enclave amid a primary forest - best of the best location in Damansara Perdana, Fatimah said.

The Balinese-inspired Armanee Terrace features homes with sky gardens and broadband-ready features. It is the first high-rise development in Damansara Perdana with a garden in every unit.

Rafflesia is MK Land's first landed residential property at the township.

"We did a market survey on what people want and upon conclusion, learnt that they are looking for properties like Armanee Terrace and Rafflesia which has, among others, high returns on investment," Fatimah said.

She added that properties in Damansara Perdana would usually appreciate by 25-30 per cent upon completion, making them appealing to buyers.

Armanee Terrace will feature several condominiums in a horseshoe offering various designs of exclusive units.

The first block has been constructed and handed over to buyers in 2007, while the second block, comprising 518 units, is under construction and being offered for sale.

Fatimah said the last two or three blocks may end up as boutique developments or duplexes where it will offer less units but with bigger built-ups.

On Rafflesia, MK Land will offer a total of 460 units of triple-storey semi-detached modern homes.

It launched the first batch of 56 houses, priced from RM1.4 million each in 2007 with 60 per cent sold.

Fatimah said the company will launch 60 new units in July, each priced from RM1.8 million.
