SP Setia in US$16.2m Vietnam JV

KUALA LUMPUR: SP Setia Berhad Group's subsidiary, Setia Lai Thieu Ltd is teaming up with Vietnam's Investment and Industrial Development Corp (Becamex IDC Corp) to undertake a mixed-use project in Vietnam valued at US$16.26 million.

The project would be carried out in Lai Thieu, Binh Doung province. The site is 16km north of Ho Chi Minh City and an hour's drive from Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

The development will encompass shophouses, terraced houses, semi-detached houses, commercial centres, club house and apartments which will be for lease and for sale.

"The project is expected to take six years to complete and has a gross development value (GDV) of US$250 million," said SP Setia.

The site is 2.5km from Phase 1 of the Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park with 230 international manufacturers from 22 countries with investments of more than US$1.4 billion. The working population is more than 40,000.

The project will be SP Setia's third project in Vietnam after EcoLakes at My Phuoc Industrial Park, 40 km north of Ho Chi Minh City and EcoXanh at Saigon Hi-Tech Park in District 9 of Ho Chi Minh City.

SP Setia made its maiden foray into Vietnam in mid-2007 when it teamed up with Vietnam’s state-owned conglomerate, Becamex to develop EcoLakes, a 558 acre eco sanctuary, conceptualised after SP Setia’s award-winning Setia Eco Park in Shah Alam.

The success of EcoLakes has reinforced SP Setia's confidence in the Vietnamese property market - in particular that of the Binh Duong Province.
