Magna Prima eyes good, small plots of land in Klang Valley

MAGNA Prima Bhd, a property developer, said there are still many pockets of land available in the Klang Valley that fits its strategy.

"If you are talking about those 500-acre lands, then it will be difficult to find. But if you look closely, there are many good, small plots of land in the Klang Valley that are suitable for smaller property projects like townhouses and apartments, which is what we are focussing on.

"As long as you are not in a hurry, know the prices and market well, you will be able get good value from the land," said chief executive officer Yoong Nim Chee after the company's extraordinary general meeting in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, yesterday.

Yoong said the local property market, especially in the middle to higher income segment, has improved this year and expects the company to benefit from it.
But it is also seeing demand from first time buyers who are only willing to pay between RM200,000 to RM300,000 per unit.

He expects the company to perform better than last year, when it registered a net profit of RM6.67 million, a decline of more than 70 per cent against 2008 net profit of RM27 million.

For the rest of the year, the company will launch several residential properties, including D'Sierra in Selayang, One Villa at Shah Alam, One Jalil at Bukit Jalil, Magna City off Jalan Kuching, Kuala Lumpur, as well a commercial property in Shah Alam, which will be rented out.

The D'Sierra project, a 3-storey townhouse development, is expected to have a gross development value of about RM70 million. The project is expected to be launched within two months. The EGM held yesterday was to secure shareholders' approval to buy the land for the D'Sierra development.

Magna Prima is also planning to launch a high-end property project near the KL City Centre area in the near future. The project will be the company's second project within the KLCC vicinity, since the Avare development which was done a few years ago.
