TTDI Development Sdn Bhd (TTDI) is all set to launch several projects this year in its run-up to its proposed listing on Bursa Malaysia, expected to be one of the largest property initial public offerings (IPO) slated for 2008.
The upcoming developments include the newly launched Platinum Park and at least four more: TTDI Alam Impian, TTDI Kajang, The Valley in Ampang and Laman Seri Business Park in Shah Alam.
TTDI Alam Impian, a 200-acre mixed development of 1,600 residential units in Alam Impian, Shah Alam, would be launched later this year. The houses would be priced between RM300,000 andRM500,000 for corner units.
TTDI Kajang, a 113-acre freehold residential development comprising terraced and semi-detached houses would also be launched later this year.
The 35-acre The Valley is a 143-unit upmarket gated and guarded bungalow project in Bukit Indah, Ampang. The semi-detached houses called linked villas would be priced from RM2.5mil while the bungalows would be priced from RM3mil to RM4.5mil.
The company has also soft-launched the leasehold Laman Seri Business Park, comprising 46 units of four and five-storey shop offices in Section 13, Shah Alam. It has sold 26 of the 46 four and five-storey shop offices priced from RM2.6mil.
TTDI group managing director Datuk Johan Ariffin is proud of the newly completed 21-acre Laman Seri, as the gated and guarded community has enhanced the image of Shah Alam.
“We believe that we must do better than the previous project, as a developer is as good as its last project. If it does not keep on improving, then it is going to fall by the wayside.” he said.
A recent visit showed nice, three-storey bungalows and semi-detached houses with 14-ft high ceilings that make all the rooms look very spacious. There are electronically synchronised fountains with natural stones for the boundary walls at the main entrance, three playgrounds and three-tier security at the entrance, perimeter and home alarm system.
Phase 1 and 2 comprising 129 bungalows and 70 semi-detached houses have been completed and CF would be issued soon. About half of the 33 bungalows under Phase 3 have been sold during a recent soft launch.
