BCB targets Klang Valley

KLUANG: Johor-based property developer BCB Bhd will focus on building its presence in the Klang Valley property market over the next three to four years.

Group managing director Datuk Robert Tan Seng Leong said the company was confident it would be able to compete with established players in the Klang Valley.

He said BCB was in the midst of setting up a permanent office in Mont' Kiara, Kuala Lumpur to mark its commitment to become one of the major property players in the Klang Valley.

It is only natural for us to move beyond Johor and our presence in the Klang Valley will open up opportunities for us to venture into other states including Penang, Tan told StarBizWeek after the company AGM on Wednesday.

He said BCB would be launching two maiden property projects in the Klang Valley in the third and the fourth quarters of 2011.

The first project comprises three bungalows, priced from RM3mil, at Lorong Awan Jawa, Taman Yarl.

The second project is Secret Garden @ Kiara on a 2.02ha site beside Solaris Mont' Kiara, which consists of 352 condominium units in five 30-storey blocks with a gross development value of RM500mil.

Tan said the units, with built-up areas ranging from 1,400 to 4,000 sq ft would be priced at RM650 per sq ft and BCB expected the project, when completed in three years, to generate a pre-tax profit of RM100mil.

Being the new boy on the block, our selling price per sq ft is slightly lower than what the established players offer and we believe this will be our strong point to attract buyers, he said.

He said BCB had engaged building consultants and landscape architecture companies from Shanghai for Secret Garden @ Kiara and would award the construction of the project to a leading Japanese or South Korean contractor.

Tan said BCB would bank on its close relationship with property companies in China, especially from Beijing and Shanghai, in marketing the project to buyers in China as many rich Chinese were looking to buy properties in South-East Asia.

He also said BCB was actively looking for land in the Klang Valley for future development and was willing to undertake projects on joint-venture basis with land owners.

For the financial year ended June 30, BCB recorded net profit of RM2.12mil on revenue of RM91.07mil against RM3.6mil and RM93.07mil respectively the previous year.
