    NTUC Choice Homes


    A sizzling property market that has seen resale values for non-landed private homes in Singapore jump nearly 10 per cent in the first quarter this year over the preceding three months has highlighted the important role that NTUC Choice Homes Co-operative plays in helping families improve their lifestyles.

    The 9.5 per cent jump in resale values to an average $460 per square foot (psf) is the highest quarterly jump since 2000, with property experts anticipating this to grow by another 2-3 per cent in the next quarter.

    Rapidly rising property prices were, in fact, the original impetus back in the early 1990s for the creation of the Choice Homes Co-op.

    Private property prices surged by 36 per cent in 1993 and 42 per cent in 1994 putting affordable housing out of reach for a great many Singaporeans.

    With rising affluence, a growing number of Singaporeans aspired to live in private housing but simply could not afford it.

    Because private property developers build projects for the sole purpose of making profits the NTUC saw a niche role it could play in helping more Singaporeans meet their aspirations by delivering quality housing at fair and affordable prices.

    NTUC Choice Homes was launched in July 1996 with then NTUC chief Lim Boon Heng saying its creation would help set benchmarks for the price and quality of mid-ranged condominiums and apartments.

    'By providing an alternative, we hope it will have some effect on moderating prices in the market,' he said.

    This was proven correct with the launch of the first two projects - Simei Green and Yew Mei Green at $410 psf and $430 psf respectively - resulting in developers of nearby properties dropping their prices to attract buyers.

    By end-2003, NTUC Choice Homes generated some $4 million in savings for more than 2,000 homeowners, a number that has grown significantly as the co-op now focuses its attention on property acquisitions to replenish its land bank.

    'We will pursue land purchases where the timing, price and attributes of the site are attractive, the purchase feasible and will meet the demand of genuine home-owners,' said NTUC Choice Homes' board chairman, Ng Ser Miang.

    This will be done through purchases from the government or through collective sales, said NTUC Choice Homes CEO Margaret Goh recently.

    'The mass market has improved considerably and activity has picked up. This is largely due to the spill-over effect from luxury housing,' she pointed out.

    'There is a wide price gap now, between luxury and mass market housing, and hence it is deemed as more affordable, and definitely more attractive as a property purchase decision,' she added.

    Sim Lian Group


    Sim Lian Group Limited is one of Singapore's most established property development and construction companies, backed by an outstanding track record in construction that spans three decades.

    The Group's evolution into an established player in Singapore's property sector was marked by its listing on the Mainboard of the Singapore Exchange in 2000. This standing is reflected in the Group's broad portfolio of developments today, embracing both freehold condominiums in prime districts as well as public housing.

    To date, the Group has successfully launched seven well-received projects. Among them are: The Dew Executive Condominium, The Jade, The Pearl @ Mount Faber, Viz at Holland and Bleu @ East Coast.

    Last year, the Group became the first private developer in Singapore to embark on the pilot HDB's Design, Build & Sell project. The Premiere @ Tampines underlines the Group's commitment to continual innovation and was a resounding success, attracting applications almost tenfold that of the units available.

    Most recently, the Group launched Carabelle with great success, selling out all units of the contemporary West Coast condominium within one month of the launch.

    Today, the Group's two core activities of property development and construction are highly synergistic, allowing the sharing of resources and the creating of greater efficiencies on various fronts. As a result, the Group is a well-rounded business entity that is able to offer greater value to its customers.

    With this, Sim Lian Group has carved out a formidable niche in the market, having won the confidence and esteem of homebuyers and having garnered a reputation as a progressive, customer-oriented company dedicated to providing innovative and high-quality developments.

    Ahead, the Group will continue to dedicate itself to the mission of: Creating Space, Creating Homes.

    Sunway City


    RESPONSIBLE for Malaysia's first Integrated Resort constructed within Kuala Lumpur itself, which won several international awards, Sunway City Berhad is today regarded as one of the most sophisticated and diverse real estate developers in the country.

    Sunway City is part of the Sunway Group, which was established in 1974 as a small tin mining company with a paid-up capital of 100,000 ringgit. Led by founder and chairman Tan Sri Dato' Seri Dr Jeffrey Cheah, the group has today grown into a thriving conglomerate that has a market capitalisation of 2.3 billion ringgit.

    Its core businesses include property development and investment, leisure, entertainment, hospitality, healthcare, tertiary education, civil engineering and construction, building materials, trading and manufacturing, quarrying, information technology and toll concession.

    Underlying this worthy corporate endeavour is the Group's business philosophy of giving back to the community it serves. The Group's 3R social responsibility programme is clearly evident in education through the creation of Sunway Education Trust Fund; preservation of environment through recycling programmes; job placement for special children; and countless fund-raising events and charitable activities.

    It was voted Top 10 Property Developer in Malaysia for four consecutive years and was named by Euromoney as among the Top 3 builders of high quality, profitable and exciting projects in Malaysia.

    It transformed Bandar Sunway, a disused 800-acre mining brownfield, into a thriving Integrated Resort with commercial value at 3 billion ringgit. The jewel in the crown is the Sunway Lagoon Resort, Asia's most magical themed IR with 7 million square feet of sprawling facilities including hotel accommodation to suit all budgets and needs, a mega shopping mall featuring the country's only ice-skating rink, and Asia's best theme park that hosts breathtaking attractions such as the world's largest man-made surf beach capable of generating 8-foot high waves. There are two world-class universities, including Australia's Monash, and a state-of-the-art medical centre.

    Sunway City's strength has attracted many renowned international partners, with whom unwavering trust has been established. They include the Singapore government's wholly- owned real estate investment arm, GIC Real Estate, Kuwait Finance House and The Employees Provident Fund (EPF).

    Sunway City has a pool of good yielding assets that will be a strong candidate to launch the largest Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in Malaysia worth about 3 billion ringgit.

    Credo Real Estate


    Established just five years ago by founder and managing director Karamjit Singh, Credo Real Estate, has become a market leader in collective or en bloc sales. According to Mr Singh, the firm was set up with the objective of focusing on real estate investment sale transactions, including redevelopment sites, collective sales, and investment grade buildings and space.

    The company is led by a dynamic team of four directors, Karamjit Singh, Tan Hong Boon, Yong Choon Fah and Wee Sing An, with real estate industry experience spanning across marketing investment properties, collective sales, consultancy, research, auction and valuation. It helps put up for sale retail, office, residential and industrial premises and good class bungalows.

    Mr Singh says it is the 'credo' or doctrine of the company to be successful in the highly specialised field of real estate consultancy, by providing its clients innovative, distinctly responsive and value-adding commercial solutions to real estate investment challenges.

    The company is committed to maintaining high professional integrity in its dealings with the ability to provide flexible and tailored services to suit its clients' objectives. Credo Real Estate's strength lies in the ability to critically analyse the various potential of an asset before recommending a tailored course of action to seek out the best buyer.

    The point of differentiation for Credo Real Estate includes the willingness to spend time to assist home-owners increase the value of their properties, resulting in favourable outcomes for both buyers and sellers. Since its first en bloc deal - Carlisle Lodge near the Novena MRT Station which was sold for just under $20 million - Credo Real Estate has been involved in more than three dozen such deals.

    The company is now moving up the ladder with mega projects such as the proposed en bloc sale of Elizabeth Heights in Cairnhill Road for about $600 million and the mother of all en bloc sales, Farrer Court, which it believes could fetch up to $1.5 billion.

    Ascendas

    OVERVIEW

    Gateway to India and China

    ASCENDAS, an innovative business space provider, is set to double its assets, grow funds and expand its footprint across Asia.

    Looking after the needs of more than 1,300 customers in Asia, Ascendas has earned a reputation for being the gateway to Asia for companies looking to locate in the region.

    Citibank, Infineon and Nokia are among the companies that have taken up space with Ascendas in several markets - be it Singapore, China, India or South Korea - a clear testimony to the company's extensive Asian network.

    Having pioneered the technology park concept with the Singapore Science Park in 1980, Ascendas ventured into India 14 years ago with another groundbreaking concept of the Work-Live-Play environment, catering to the country's budding IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) sectors. Thus the International Tech Park Bangalore (ITPB) was created, opening its doors in 1994.

    Ascendas believes and was told that the ITPB played a catalyst role in the growth of India's IT Park industry, and also the development of Whitefield - where the ITPB is located - as India's own Silicon Valley. Today, the park in Bangalore hosts a community of over 20,000 people working for multinationals and leading Indian corporations.

    Chong Siak Ching, president and CEO of Ascendas Pte Ltd, said: 'From the ITPB, which is Ascendas' maiden and flagship project in India, we gained valuable insights on the Indian market.

    'This experience has helped us immensely in expanding our business-space offerings across India, with seven parks in five cities, and still expanding into more cities.'

    The business space specialist now manages about 4.7 million sq ft of space in India and plans to double this size in the next two years.

    Similarly, Ascendas has established a strong track record in China over the past 10 years. It pioneered the Ready-Built Facilities concept at Ascendas-Xinsu in Suzhou Industrial Park and has since extended its footprint to 10 Chinese cities.

    Ascendas currently manages about 5.8 million sq ft of space in China and Ms Chong said the company plans to triple the space under its management in the next five years. 'Our flagships like the Singapore Science Park and India's International Tech Parks have established us as the science and IT park brand for knowledge businesses. We are now extending our forte in science and IT park development to China,' she added.

    A major new development, the Dalian Ascendas IT Park (DAITP), will emerge in the next few years to become an iconic equal to ITPB. As Ascendas' first IT park in China, the 35-hectare Dalian park is being developed in phases to meet market demand. It will release a total of 500,000 sq m of high quality space to accommodate more than 30,000 IT professionals when fully completed in five to eight years' time.

    Growing asset light

    With increased investor appetite for Asian real estate, Ascendas is capitalising on the investment opportunities to grow its fund management business outside Singapore. In June 2005, Ascendas set up its first private real estate fund, the Ascendas India IT Parks Trust, seeded by two of its prime IT parks in India, namely the International Tech Park Bangalore and The V in Hyderabad. The fund, which subsequently acquired CyberPearl IT park in Hyderabad from Ascendas' Indian stable, continues to grow.

    In South Korea, Ascendas set up its first Korea Office Fund in October 2006, seeded by an 82 per cent share of office space in Anam Tower, which is located in the upscale Yeoksam-dong area of Gangnam district. Two office buildings located in the central business district, Citibank Center and Dadong Center, were recently injected into the fund, growing its asset size to 181 billion Korean won, which is 36 per cent of its targeted asset size of 500 billion Korean won.

    Ms Chong said: 'Over the last five years, we have been transforming ourselves from a traditional property developer into one that is asset light, and also one that allows us to leverage on third-party capital to grow across Asia. Through this strategy, we can expand our footprint to offer customers a better service, as their partner in multiple markets.'

    Ms Chong also said: 'Fund management is an integral part of our core business and we believe that investment vehicles such as real estate funds provide a win-win solution for us and our investors, who can participate in owning high quality assets.

    'As we expand our business with more projects in existing and new cities, we will also actively explore ways to grow our capital to fuel our expansion.'

    Ascendas today manages a total of $5.7 billion worth of assets. It has set its sights on doubling this to $10 billion by 2010.

    Where Business Meets Lifestyle

    TO stay ahead of its game, Ascendas adopts a product strategy where the company provides more than just physical infrastructure within its IT parks. Its unique 'International Business Lifestyle' is a broadened offering of the Work-Live-Play concept.

    Extensive lifestyle amenities such as gyms, retail malls, dining outlets, delis, banks and convenience stores are integrated within the IT parks. Lively activities abound, including rock concerts, fashion shows and healthy lifestyle programmes as part of the annual calendar to create a vibrant lifestyle for employees at the parks.

    BS Capital Group

    OVERVIEW

    BS Capital Group gained prominence as a boutique property developer in September 2003.

    Despite being a newcomer to the scene, the company has made waves in the property scene by purchasing 276,118 square feet of prime land in the Bishopsgate area - one of the choicest areas for bungalows in Singapore. The most recent feather in BS Capital's cap is the acquisition of 95 Sophia Road through a collective sale.

    The development is conveniently situated within walking distance from Plaza Singapura and The Cathay. BS Capital is planning to launch the new project this year.

    The developer recently launched its first two luxury projects.

    Lumiere, which sits on the former HMC Building site is located off Shenton Way, and The Arc at Draycott.

    Both developments have since garnered enthusiastic market response, especially the Soho-styled Lumiere.

    The 99-year leasehold Soho apartments saw its first-phase release snapped up within hours on the first day.

    The overwhelming response has prompted the developer to release additional reserved floors for sale. The BS Capital brand is the abbreviated namesake of the company's highly successful maiden Bishopsgate project.

    The group says it aims to be synonymous with quality and functionality and hence their concerted efforts and focus on high-end and city living projects.

    BS Capital has successfully launched three projects and will continue riding the inner-city living lifestyle boom.

    GuocoLand

    OVERVIEW

    GUOCOLAND Limited, which has property operations in Singapore, Malaysia, China and Vietnam, has established itself as a major regional developer over the last 19 years.

    Majority owned by the Hong Leong Group Malaysia since 1988, GuocoLand's core business comprises property development, property investment, property management and property-related activities in the region.

    On November 18, 2002, the company changed its name from First Capital Corporation Ltd to its present name of GuocoLand Limited to better reflect its focus as a property company and to better identify it with its parent company, Guoco Group Limited, a public company listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.

    GuocoLand was a pioneer in the development of 99-year leasehold condominiums in Singapore, targeted primarily at Housing Development Board upgraders.

    The Group has successfully developed and sold over two dozen residential developments here, yielding more than 7,400 homes and has established itself as a major developer in the private residential property market in Singapore.

    Last month, it entered into a conditional agreement to acquire Leedon Heights condominium, off Holland Road and Farrer Road, for $835 million. Its current land bank on the island is about 246,000 sq m of saleable area.

    As at end-June 2006, the company had total assets of about $2.7 billion, including $1.1 billion in shareholders' funds. The company's current market capitalisation is about $3.5 billion.

    It has also been active in sourcing for land parcels overseas. In China, it recently secured conditional agreement to develop a prime site at Dongzhimen in the centre of Beijing. GuocoLand will be pumping US$1.3 billion to turn it into a huge 600,000 sq m iconic integrated development in the Chinese capital.

    The Group, which has had a presence in China's real estate sector since 1994, has investments in Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing. In March 2007, GuocoLand made its first foray into Tianjin when it entered into a conditional agreement to acquire a 26,000 sq m plot of land, bringing the Group's total land bank in China to about two million sq m Gross Floor Area.

    In Malaysia, the Group acquired a stake in GuocoLand (Malaysia) Berhad (GLM), previously known as Hong Leong Properties Berhad, in 2004. GLM, which is listed on the main board of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad, became a subsidiary of GuocoLand after a successful general offer in 2006.

    The property portfolio held by GLM, its subsidiaries and its joint ventures and companies in Malaysia comprise mainly residential and commercial assets.

    Approximately 11,772 acres of land are available for residential and township development, including 8.4 acres of freehold land for an integrated project in Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.

    As part of its plan to move into areas with recurring income, GLM set up the Tower Real Estate Investment Trust (Tower Reit) in April 2006 to manage third party assets. Tower Reit is also listed on the main board of Bursa Malaysia.

    The company has also ventured into Vietnam where it currently has a land bank of about 240,000 sq m GFA.
