This marvelous Singapore-based company acquired the piece of land in Puteri Harbour from UEM Land Holdings Bhd for RM93.33mil, it said in a statement. Pacific Star plans to develop exclusive waterfront apartments, small-office-home-office (Soho) units, as well as a lifestyle retail centre.
The company said it started negotiations with UEM Land in early 2011.
The project consists of three 25-storey apartment towers with about 800 apartments ranging from one bedroom to four bedrooms. Another two low-rise four-storey blocks will house the Soho units. All apartments and Soho units will face the marina, sea, Straits of Johor and skyline of western Singapore.
Meanwhile, the two-storey commercial lifestyle retail centre spans approximately 120,000 sq ft, with about 80 planned retail units.
The development is situated at a strategic waterfront location in Puteri Harbour and within five minutes walk to the Puteri Harbour Custom, and the Immigration and Quarantine Centre.
“Our integrated waterfront project will bring a slice of affordable luxury to the centre of Puteri Harbour, catering to the accommodation needs of discerning Malaysians, Singaporeans and the growing expatriate community in the Iskandar region. This unique project will spearhead our development business in the Asean countries and we look forward to launch the sales before year-end where we aim to achieve a GDV (gross development value) of more than RM1.18bil,” president and Pacific Star Group chief operating officer Glen Chan said.
UEM Land chief executive officer and managing director Datuk Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim added that Pacific Star’s project will bring development momentum up by another notch in Puteri Harbour.
