Posh: The semi-detached houses by BSG Property in Tanjung Bungah.

BOON Siew Group Property’s (BSG) NineTen project comprising 40 semi-detached houses located in Tanjung Bungah will be completed by July.

The project, which is part of the upcoming 48.5ha Permai Village township, will have the Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC) and Tenby International School (scheduled for completion in August) as “neighbours”.

BSG property business development manager Koay Wei Loong said the units, aimed at the middle and upper middle class, have been bought by locals and foreigners mainly from Europe, Hong Kong and Singapore.

“We made sure that everything is of the highest quality, because these buyers are usually very choosy. Most of our buyers are also repeat customers.

“Besides buying for occupancy or as a holiday home, the customers will sometimes buy it for investment,” he said after holding a private preview for selected guests recently.

BSG property executive director Alfred Chew said that the units priced from RM2.4mil to RM5.8 mil are almost completed.

Luxurious: Houses in NineTen project come complete with swimming pool.

“We have sold 60% of the NineTen project. Landed property in Penang is in demand because of land scarcity on the island. These days, we see that buildings in Penang are moving upwards,” Chew said.

GUH seeks more land for property projects

WHILE GUH Holdings Bhd continues to look at its printed circuit board (PCB) division as the primary driver of growth this year and in years to come, the firm continues to expand its landbank for other activities.

Managing director Datuk Kenneth H'ng Bak Tee said for its PCB business, the company will move into niche, better pricing and future trend products such as light emitting diode (LED)-based special tuners and power supply.

"In further restructuring our clientele base," he noted, "we are moving away from Taiwanese and Chinese clients who are generally known for their low pricing and being bad paymasters."

While South Korean clients are basically associated with average pricing and are good paymasters, H'ng said the focus would be more on Japanese, the US and European clients who are known for not only good pricing, but also for being good paymasters.
On the property development side, GUH is looking at acquiring land in the Klang Valley, Penang island and upcoming spots in Seberang Prai.

He said GUH's Taman Bukit Kepayang development in Seremban, has so far seen development of 120 hectares and there was a balance of about 108 ha left to be developed over the next six to seven years.

"We want to maintain our current build-and-sell strategy for residential and commercial development," he added.

On GUH's plantation activities, H'ng said the 154 ha of plantation land in Kedah, acquired as a testing ground, had proven to be very successful and boasted industry-standard yields.

"We are now looking to increase the estate size to between 1,200 ha and 2,000 ha in order to achieve meaningful economics of scale," he added.

Oversea Enterprise To Sell Shop Offices For RM5.65 Million

KUALA LUMPUR -- Oversea Enterprise Bhd's wholly-owned subsidiary, Restaurant Oversea (Imbi) Sdn Bhd, has proposed to dispose off four units of two-storey shop offices located in Kuchai Business Park here for RM5.65 million.

The sale and purchase agreement was entered into with Yayasan Dazhi Monday, Oversea Enterprise said in a filing to Bursa Malaysia.

It said the properties were acquired on Feb 21, 2006 and its disposal would result in a loss of RM3,000 to Restaurant Oversea.

"The proceeds arising from the disposal is intended to be used for the working capital of Restaurant Oversea and is expected to be utilized within a period of 24 months from the date of the sale and purchase agreement," it said.

As for the rationale for the disposal, it said: "The location of these properties were found to be unsuitable for the intended business activities of Oversea and its subsidiaries and the current rental income derived from these properties was low.

"The disposal would generate additional cash reserves for Restaurant Oversea's working capital purposes."
