RM48bil gross development value for SIC project

GuocoLand MD says the project destined to be a model city of the future

PETALING JAYA: GuocoLand (M) Bhd, the property arm of Hong Leong Group, will be developing the Sepang International City (SIC) with a gross development value of RM48bil.

GuocoLand said in a statement that the proposed project would span about 1,620ha in the southern corridor of Selangor and would be developed over 18 phases.

Full completion of the project is expected to take 15 to 20 years.

“The seafront development will include commercial, business, residential and leisure developments, a hub for institutions of higher learning and a large world-class urban park that will be modelled after the Central Park in New York City,” it said.

GuocoLand managing director Yeow Wai Siaw said the SIC would serve as the catalyst for the growth and future development of Sepang and its surrounding areas.

“SIC is destined to be a model city of the future, not only in Malaysia but in this region. We are very honoured to undertake our second entry point project (EPP) initiative,” he said.

The EPP is part of the new 21 Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) projects announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at an ETP progress update briefing earlier this week.

More than 500,000 people are expected to live and work in the SIC.

The project would be supported by direct transport links to the KL International Airport, Kuala Lumpur and other major points in greater Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley, it added.

GuocoLand's other projects include Damansara City in Damansara Heights, Commerce One along Old Klang Road, the Emerald master-planned township in Rawang, PJ City Corporate Hub in Petaling Jaya and Amandarii in Kajang.
