Bina Puri completes twice-abandoned project

KUALA LUMPUR: The twice-abandoned Main Place Residence in Subang Jaya, Selangor is finally ready for occupancy after 16 years.

The RM291 million project, which stalled despite two developers having earlier attempted to complete it, finally saw its completion by its third developer Sumbangan Lagenda Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Bina Puri Holdings Bhd, with the handing over of the Certificate of Fitness and Occupancy from the Subang Jaya Municipal Council yesterday.

The 34-storey building comprises 1,211 studio, two- and three-bedroom units, with sizes ranging from 418 sq ft to 1,535 sq ft; five-storey car parks; three-storey retail podium as well as two-storey basement car parks.

Bina Puri chairman Tan Sri Wong Foon Meng said the group completed it with better improved facilities for the benefit of the buyers.

“Most of the facilities designed by the previous developer more than 16 years ago had become outdated in this present day and age,” he said in a statement yesterday.

“Residents now benefit with speedier high-speed lifts, a larger Olympic-sized swimming pool as well as complementary facilities to include a residents’ hall, cafeteria, gymnasium and sauna room, children’s playground, and squash court,” he added.

Sumbangan Lagenda said over 90% of the residential units have been sold. The units are priced between RM300,000 and RM850,000 each. — by Adela Megan Willy
