KUALA LUMPUR (June 2): Hua Yang Bhd is on track to begin construction of a high-rise mixed-development project in Selayang with a gross development value (GDV) of RM800 million after shareholders passed the ordinary resolution that will give effect to the proposed acquisition of a piece of land measuring 8.09 acres in Selayang.
The land will be purchased entirely by cash of RM120 million, which will be raised through internally-generated funds or from the Sukuk Murabahah programme or a combination of both. The resolution was passed at the group’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) today.
In a statement following the EGM today, Hua Yang chief executive officer Ho Wen Yan said that the shareholders’ approval marks an important milestone that puts the group a step closer towards realising its plans for the land located along the major Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2).
“We intend to cater to the growing demand for affordable priced homes, especially from the younger market and middle-income segment. To achieve this, we will be building vertical communities that are appealing to contemporary urban lifestyles in an area that offers unparalleled access to major highways and roads as well as to modern amenities,” he said.
Development for the project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016, with a targeted completion of between five to seven years. The development will comprise four blocks of serviced apartments with 1,264 units, club facilities with a multi-storey car park, and two levels of retail commercial area consisting of 154 units of retail outlets.
As at 11.57am, Hua Yang (fundamental: 1.7; valuation: 2.4) rose 0.49% or one sen to RM2.07, for a market capitalisation of RM543.84 million.
