Iskandar Malaysia records RM208 billion in committed investments

JOHOR BARU, 2016 August 14 — Iskandar Malaysia has recorded RM208 billion in committed investments from 2006 until June 30 this year, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Najib, who is also the Co-Chairman of Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA), said of the total, 51% or RM106.43 billion represented investments that have been realised.

“(Of the total committed investments) Local investors contributed RM124 billion while 40% (RM84.05 billion) came from foreign countries, which showed confidence of our neighbour and other countries in the world,” he said in a speech at the launch of Iskandar Malaysia Greenland Smart City Experiential Centre (SMARTXP), Helios Cove in Permas Jaya today.

Also present were Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, IRDA Chief Executive Datuk Ismail Ibrahim and Greenland Group Chairman/President, Zhang Yuliang.

Najib said the huge investments reflected the country’s strong economic fundamentals especially with the government strengthening the economy by removing subsidies on petroleum and gas, implementing the Good and Services Tax (GST) and diversifying the economy.

Despite receiving a lot of criticism and being exploited by some quarters including former leaders, the GST has become Malaysia’s saviour following a sharp drop in oil and gas prices, said Najib, who is also Finance Minister.

“They knew it was the right thing to do but they claimed that it was not,” he said, adding that the government has been able to withstand the global headwinds and remains on track in achieving its vision to become a high-income nation.

On Iskandar Malaysia, Najib said between 2007 and 2015, it created a total of 682,169 jobs in various sectors mostly in manufacturing, hospitality, food and beverage, as well as education.

Meanwhile on the smart city, the prime minister said there was a need to develop the smart city concept in the future as 90% of the country’s population would be living in the cities by 2020.

Citing research studies, Najib said of the nearly 32 million people in Malaysia, 74.5% were currently staying in the cities and urban areas.

“This number is expected to increase to 90% by 2020. In other words, there are 21 people, either migrating to the cities or being born, every hour and this translates into 504 people a day and 183,960 people in a year.

“So, the demand for smart city infrastructure will be tremendous and vital,” he said adding that he was pleased to see Iskandar Malaysia has come out with the SMARTXP concept.

The SMARTXP, which is open to the public from today, allows visitors to experience smart city living with the latest technology including virtual reality experiences as well as interactive game.

UMLand still Positive about Iskandar Malaysia


UMLand operates two development divisions, namely the Township and Niche Divisions and a construction and building materials division called UM Land Builders Sdn Bhd. The group has over 1,800 acres of undeveloped land in both Township and Niche Divisions.

The group has undergone a big restructuring exercise with Dennis Ng being named the new Group Managing Director.

“The vision remains the same but with the new structure, we will be venturing into new businesses and targeting new customers,” said Dennis in a meet and greet session with members of the press, recently.

Currently, UMLand is actively developing a mixed development project Suasana Iskandar Malaysia in Johor Bahru City Centre, a multi-phased mixed development UMCity Medini Lakeside in Medini, Iskandar Malaysia, a modern integrated industrial park, Johor Halal Park in Pasir Gudang, and Seri Austin and Seri Alam Townships. Also in the pipeline is the development of The Waves @ Puteri Harbour as well as Viridea Lakeside in Medini.

“We continue to believe in Iskandar Malaysia and we’ve been here for a long time and we’re looking at the long term prospects. We have a number of new projects coming up in Iskandar Malaysia which will be announced in due time,” said Dennis.

Dennis also added that the property market as a whole is sluggish but with the recent announcement from Bank Negara on the reduction of the Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) will be helpful. The recent signing of the High Speed Rail MoU will also help bring a lot of interest from Singaporean investors.

“We expect the market to remain on the challenging side, but the expectation is that once the market gets better; it will get better quick,” said Dennis.

Property market slowdown to remain in second half 2016

The downtrend of the property market in 2015 which continued in the first half of 2016 is expected to remain for the rest of 2016.

“In the present uncertain economic scenario, the outlook of property market for 2016 is expected to be in similar momentum,” said the Valuation and Property Services Department director general Datuk Faizan Abdul Rahman.

“The overall market activity is anticipated to be further toned down. Nevertheless, the residential sub-sector will continue to dominate the market segment, with affordable housing taking the limelight,” he said during his presentation at the Malaysian Property Summit Mid-Year Review 2016 today.

He said a price correction can be expected as more supply of affordable housing by both public and private sectors enter the market while the slow growth in the House Price Index (HPI) will continue further.

The growth in HPI has been on a declining trend since the third quarter of 2013, when index points grew 12.2% year-on-year. In the fourth quarter of 2015, index points grew 7.2% year-on-year.

Faizan said the preliminary growth for first quarter of 2016 is 6.8% year-on-year. He said a favourable year-on-year growth range would be 3-5%.

Johor aims for third link with Singapore

JOHOR BARU, July 26: Johor will submit a ferry terminal service proposal to the federal government this year in its efforts to start a third link with Singapore.

Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin said this after attending a Hari Raya gathering organised by the management of the Larkin bus and taxi terminal at a hotel here today.

“The proposed ferry terminal site will be at Kong-Kong, Masai, and will be a third link for Johor and Singapore after the Causeway and Second Link in Tanjung Pelepas,” he added.

He said the ferry service is not only for passengers, but also to transport cars.

“With this, we will have a water taxi service between Kong-Kong and Changi ferry terminal in Singapore,” Mohamed Khaled said.

He added it will take about 20 minutes to reach Changi ferry terminal via the Kong-Kong waterway, which will help ease the heavy traffic flow on the existing two crossings.

He said Kong-Kong is a suitable site for a ferry terminal site as it is located at the eastern part of Johor and will be complimented with the two checkpoints at the southern part of Johor.

“If we get the green light from the federal government, preparatory works may start next year,” Mohamed Khaled said.

Earlier, Mohd Najib Abd. Rahman, chairman of the terminal management, said there are 400 taxi operators travelling from JB to Singapore daily from the terminal.

“Our biggest challenge is the traffic jam at the JB Causeway as it takes us about two to three hours to go through the two checkpoints (JB Causeway and Woodlands checkpoint) before driving into Singapore,” he said.

UEM Sunrise’s Melia received excellent sales


UEM Sunrise Bhd will focus on strengthening its fundamentals to steer growth, amid the challenging property market this year.

Executive Director Datuk Izzaddin Idris said the company had outlined some key priorities to focus on this year among them — establishing a comprehensive marketing strategy, intensifying systems and processes to ensure timely and quality delivery to build its reputation as a value-driven developer.

In a statement Monday, he said the company expected the demand for the property sector to remain subdued as the Malaysian economy slowed, tight lending conditions continued and consumer, as well as, business sentiment remained passive.

Iskandar Puteri development will remain the company’s long term growth driver hence planning to intensify the development of Gerbang Nusajaya into the commercial and business engine of Iskandar Puteri and gateway of Iskandar Malaysia.

“UEM Sunrise would also continue its efforts to diversify its range of products this year such as the Melia Residences in Gerbang Nusajaya as it received overwhelming response from buyers,” said Izzaddin.

Melia Residences is a five phase development project with a total gross development value (GDV) of RM573 million.

“The first three phases comprised 66 landed strata units and a GDV of RM280 million. After seeing close to RM206 million in sales from the first two phases within two days of launching, the third phase, launched in late April already has a 50 per cent take up,” he added.

Apart from the launch of subsequent developments and clearing out inventories, the company would also strategise its growth by collaborating with strategic partners, to add value to its ongoing projects.

Izzaddin said in view of the current consumer and market sentiment, UEM Sunrise was also looking to foster its organic growth via property related businesses.

“The current property down cycle is an opportune time for us to concentrate on creating a recurring income base for the company by leveraging on our existing projects such as our retail businesses (Publika & Mall of Medini).

“We will also expand our revenue from property management, project management, leasing services and hospitality,” he added.

Singapore property in the downhill trend

More newly completed and even uncompleted homes are going under the hammer as the Singapore housing market contends with an oversupply from the property boom years and a weak rental segment.

A total of 13 properties either completed in the past three years or still being built have been put up for mortgagee sale so far this year, according to JLL data. This is the same number as for all of last year and a sharp rise from just three in the same period last year.

A mortgagee sale occurs when a home borrower defaults on loan payments and the bank arranges a forced sale to recover its money.

Among the new completions up for mortgagee sale last month was a four-bedroom unit at Silversea in Marine Parade, completed in 2014. The unit went for $3.9 million or about $1,529 per sq ft.

Also up for sale was a three-bedder at OUE Twin Peaks, the first time a unit at the project is on the block. It was completed last year.

Uncompleted developments coming up for mortgagee sale include a bungalow in Mimosa Crescent in Yio Chu Kang and a pair of semi-detached houses in Serangoon Gardens, to be presented at JLL’s auction this month. And Knight Frank is handling the bank sale of a three-bedder at Sky Vue in Bishan, which will be completed next year.

Last year, just one mortgagee sale home was uncompleted – a one- bedder at Hillsta in Choa Chu Kang.

“At least three years after the property boom years of 2011 to 2013, the market is feeling an influx of newly completed projects,” said Ms Mok Sze Sze, JLL head of auctions for Singapore.

Some investors are off-loading stock four years after buying – just past the period when they would incur seller’s stamp duty.

Of the owners’ sales at auction so far this year, about 10 units were completed in the past three years, JLL found. Of these, eight are being sold on a vacant possession basis.

These include a one-bedroom penthouse at Guillemard Edge, a three-bedroom unit at Bartley Residences and two of three retail or restaurant units at D’Leedon.

Some newly-completed units on offer include apartments of over 1,500 sq ft, which owners find difficult to sell as prices are typically above $2 million, said Ms Grace Ng, deputy managing director at Colliers International.

Some are penthouses, bought off-plan she said. “Upon completion, the vendors experience difficulty in renting and selling them due to the undesirable layout.”

Other new properties are one- bedders priced at $1 million or below, such as small-office-home-office units at euHabitat in Eunos and The Greenwich in Seletar – both up for mortgagee sale this year. euHabitat was completed last year; The Greenwich in 2014.

During the boom, investors were drawn to shoebox apartments, given their low overall prices. But investors who are servicing more than one loan may be feeling the heat from the increasingly competitive leasing market. “Some are unable to secure tenants or are forced to accept lower rents. They could find it a stretch to service their mortgages,” said Ms Ng.
