Senawang investing RM60mil in new project


BY SIMON KHOO IN SEREMBAN

SENAWANG Land Sdn Bhd is investing an estimated RM60mil to develop their latest project – the Senawang Commercial Park (SCP) – in Seremban.  

Senawang Land group managing director Datuk Gan Boon Khuay said one of the main attractions of the project was a proposed family fun park that would be similar to the Mines Wonderland in Seri Kembangan and scheduled to be completed by the end of 2005. 

He told StarBiz recently that SCP was the latest “star attraction” in Senawang, reputed to be the fastest growth commercial centre in the state. 

“SCP is being developed on 17.4ha prime freehold land and divided into four phases of development of which the first two phases have been completed and handed over to the purchasers,” he said, adding that business was already thriving there. 

Gan said Phase Three (a) was almost 65% completed and more than 70% had already been sold.  

“When fully completed, SCP would have 201 units of two- and three-storey shop offices,” he said. 

He said SCP had great business and investment potential as it was strategically located along Jalan Senawang, which was connected to the North-South Expressway and surrounding link roads. 

“SCP has a huge customer base since Giant hypermarket, its anchor tenant occupying 16,723 sq m, opened for business last March, followed by the launching of the first McDonald’s drive-through outlet recently. 

“It is also surrounded by many established residential estates such as Taman Tasik Jaya, Taman Senawang Jaya, Taman Seremban Jaya, Taman Tuanku Jaafar, Taman Rasah Jaya and Taman Seremban,” he said. 

Gan said that about 850,000 people frequented SCP every month and it was expected to be the regional shopping area not only for Seremban residents but also those in nearby districts such as Kuala Pilah, Jelebu, Rembau, Tampin and Port Dickson. 

He said the opening of Dataran Senawang by Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Tan Sri Mohamed Isa Abdul Samad last week further enhanced SCP’s position as a commercial park that combined business and leisure. 

“It is our hope that Dataran Senawang will be a focal point or a meeting place for family members and friends to get together, making it an ultimate landmark not only for Senawang but Seremban as well,” he said. 

Gan said that with the continuous support and assistance from the state government, the company aimed to create a new concept that offered patrons an alternative lifestyle complete with al fresco dining areas, F&B franchises and cafes, together with other retail businesses.  

Gan said other projects that the group had completed were the 162ha Senawang industrial park and the 81ha Taman Tasik Jaya. 

Projects in the pipeline were the 4ha Senawang Business Park (SBP) that comprised a row of two and three-storey stratified showroom-cum-sale offices and a few blocks of service centres of various sizes, he said.  

In addition, he said, the group was targeting to launch phase one of the 111ha comprehensive township project known as Senawang Park City, comprising mixed residential, commercial and industrial development, by the second quarter of next year. 

He said at the planning stage also was a joint-venture residential project with the Seremban Municipal Council that would include a 4.5ha recreational lake garden.
