Khazanah and Temasek announce strategic joint investments in real estate
Khazanah and Temasek commit to joint developments in Iskandar Malaysia and Singapore
 
MEDIA RELEASE
 
SINGAPORE - Khazanah Nasional Berhad (“Khazanah”) and Temasek Holdings (Private) Limited (“Temasek”) are pleased to announce the establishment of M+S Pte Ltd (“M+S”) and Pulau Indah Ventures Sdn Bhd (“Pulau Indah”).
 
Owned 60:40 by Khazanah and Temasek respectively, M+S will develop land parcels in Marina South and Ophir- Rochor in Singapore. Pulau Indah, a 50:50 joint venture between Khazanah and Temasek, will develop projects in Iskandar Malaysia in Johor.
 
These joint developments were supported by the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Singapore in their Joint Statements of 24 May 2010, 22 June 2010, 20 September 2010 and 27 June 2011.
 
M+S develops two key sites in Singapore
 
M+S Pte Ltd will develop four land parcels in Marina South and two land parcels in Ophir Rochor, each as an integrated development.
 
An indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of UEM Land Holdings Berhad (“UEM Land”), a real estate company within Khazanah’s portfolio, and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd (“Mapletree”), a Temasek portfolio company, have been appointed to oversee the marketing and development of the project at Marina South. For the Ophir-Rochor site, UEM Land and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of CapitaLand Limited (“CapitaLand”), another Temasek portfolio company, have been appointed to oversee the marketing and development.
 
Khazanah and Temasek are both committed to the successful commercialisation of these land parcels, which will include office, residential, hotel and retail components.
 
The gross development value of the project with a permitted gross floor area (“Permitted GFA”) of up to 501,020 sqm is estimated at approximately SGD11 billion (RM27 billion), subject to design and development plans.
 
Pulau Indah develops two new sites in Iskandar Malaysia
 
Khazanah and Temasek have worked together since last May to identify suitable sites in Iskandar Malaysia for joint commercial development. Two sites, one in Medini North and the other at the Heritage Cluster in Medini Central, have been confirmed.
 
Pulau Indah intends to develop serviced apartments, a corporate training centre, and commercial, retail, residential and wellness-related offerings on these sites. Khazanah and Temasek are currently in discussions and negotiations with potential partners and operators for the various components to maximize the commercial potential of the location.
 
The gross development value of the Iskandar project with a Permitted GFA of up to 1,365,675 sqm is estimated at approximately RM3 billion, subject to design and development plans.Planning and design works for the projects had commenced in 1Q/2011. With the signing of these agreements today, the projects will move towards design and further implementation and delivery of the initial phases over the next five years.
 
Khazanah’s Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato’ Azman Hj Mokhtar, said: “We are honoured to be undertaking these exciting developments at these key sites in Singapore and Iskandar Malaysia with our counterparts from Singapore, Temasek Holdings. The development in Iskandar with Temasek will be highly complementary and builds on the momentum of existing and planned projects in Iskandar Malaysia, in which Khazanah has been involved since 2006. Both these projects mark our first joint development investment with Temasek, and we look forward to a strong and fruitful partnership in both Singapore and Iskandar Malaysia.”
 
Ms Ho Ching, Executive Director & CEO of Temasek, added: “Both the Khazanah and Temasek teams put in tremendous effort, working very closely together to develop the best ideas possible for our joint projects. We were also very fortunate to have the expert and highly professional support of leading real estate companies like UEM Land from Malaysia as well as Mapletree and CapitaLand from Singapore. I am also especially grateful for the guidance, advice and support of very experienced industry leaders who will guide the Singapore developments as key Board members of M+S. I look forward to the successful development of the projects both in Johor as well as Singapore."

M'sian and S'porean units join to unveil RM7bil DUO project
It is to complement Marina Bay and Raffles Place business clusters
SINGAPORE: M+S Pte Ltd has unveiled the design of DUO, an integrated development with a gross development value of S$3bil (RM7.51bil) at Ophir-Rochor, the up-and-coming downtown that complements the Marina Bay and Raffles Place business clusters.
DUO is developed by M+S, a joint investment by Khazanah Nasional and Temasek Holdings, with Capitaland Ltd and UEM Land Holdings appointed as project managers.
The development is designed by internationally acclaimed architect, Ole Scheeren.
Preparatory work on the project has already started and is due for completion in 2017.
DUO will consist of two towers, one housing component comprising 660 premium residences.
The other offerings include prime Grade A office space designed to meet a Green Mark Platinum rating, a 300-room five-star hotel and unique retail gallery, all set within a park-like environment.
The name DUO reflects the two towers at the heart of the development and the architect's vision to create a design that relates to the contemporary aspect of the neighbouring central business district (CBD) and the historical surroundings of Kampong Glam.
In his address at the launch, M+S chairman Tan Sri Azman Yahya said: “We are committed to delivering a development that strikes a sensitive balance between the preservation of this significantly historical and vibrant area, while at the same time enhancing it with mixed-use facilities that are relevant to the future needs of Singapore.
“Striking a balance is challenging but we are confident of meeting the task with our team of local and international consultants together with our design architect, Ole Scheeren.”
“We are confident that it will attract both local and foreign residential buyers looking for sound investment, and businesses seeking Grade A commercial space with excellent facilities and connectivity at competitive pricing,” he added.
With a gross floor area of about 1.8 million sq ft, DUO will be directly connected to the Bugis MRT interchange's East West Line and upcoming Downtown Line via unerground pedestrian linkways, providing easy access to the CBD, Marina Bay and major shopping, dining and entertainment areas at Orchard Road and Singapore River.
The construction loan for the project will be financed by eight banks DBS, OCBC, UOB, Maybank, ANZ, Sumitomo Mitsui, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi and CIMB.
Speaking to reporters later, Azman said: “We do expect strong demand for the project, which is expected to be launched next year.”
In terms of pricing for the residential and office units, he said it would be announced prior to the launch.
On the hotel operators, Azman said: “We are talking to several operators and details on the matter will be announced sometime next year.”
Introducing the design concept, Schreen said the development incorporated environmental strategies through passive and active energy-design and naturally ventilated spaces.
The development has already been recognised internationally, bagging the Silver award in “Best Futura Project” category at the recent MIPIM Asia Awards 2012, an acknowledgement that celebrates excellence and innovation in real estate development. - Bernama
