04 March 2011

Business Times Latest commercial development reflects region’s investment pull Medini, the flagship development of Iskandar Malaysia, has received a further boost in the form of a RM688 million (S$285 million) commercial development to highlight the growing attractiveness of the region to investors. The agreement for the 10.3 acre development, situated in the region’s financial and business centre, was signed yesterday between Global Capital Developments (GCD), which is the concession holder tasked with the development of Medini, and Platinum Meadow, a wholly owned subsidiary of leading Malaysian construction and property development company WCT Berhad. This latest project strengthens WCT’s growing presence and reputation in the region, as the company already has a joint venture deal with Iskandar Investment Berhad (IIB) to develop 1Medini – the city’s first residential development – and takes the gross development value of its projects in Medini to RM1.3 billion. ‘As an internationally recognised company, WCT’s presence in the Medini Business District raises the value of commercial development in and around Medini, Iskandar Malaysia,’ said Keith Martin, chief executive of GCD. ‘The inking of this investment deal with GCD forms part of the company’s business plans to expand its property development presence in the southern region and to complement the development of 1Medini Residences,’ said WCT managing director Taing Kim Hwa. Just last week, GCD had attracted another big name investor to Medini. It had reached an agreement with Pantai Holdings to develop Gleneagles Medini Hospital. The RM500 million deal will see the 300-bed private tertiary hospital developed across 15 acres of land in Medini North and positioned as one of the premium hospitals under Parkway Health. These developments will enhance the impressive list of projects in the Medini Business District, which includes a media village cluster development intended to support Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios. The studios are a US$150 million film and television production facility that is expected to create more than 3,000 jobs. Besides these developments, Iskandar Malaysia has major investments in manufacturing and lifestyle projects, such as the RM1.5 billion stainless steel plant joint venture between Spanish stainless steel maker Acerinox and Japan’s Nisshin Steel, and the RM750 million theme park Legoland Malaysia, which is expected to open by 2012. GCD, which represents investors from the Middle East and Malaysia that include IIB and the Abu Dhabi government investment company Mubadala, is optimistic about attracting more investments to Medini. ‘The quality and range of business, leisure and social infrastructure, combined with the development’s proximity to Singapore and rapid transit connections throughout Malaysia and the region, make Medini a very compelling proposition,’ Mr Martin said. GCD is now conducting a feasibility study to develop Plaza Medini, a two million square feet commercial mixed-use project consisting of office space, hospitality venues, serviced apartments and retail outlets.
