KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Group Bhd’s Southgate Commercial Centre and Aman Perdana projects saw the lifestyle developer winning two coveted awards in the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2009.
Southgate in Kuala Lumpur was recognised as “Best Office Development in Malaysia”, whilst Aman Perdana in the Meru-Shah Alam corridor was named “Best Mixed Use Development in Malaysia”.
The awards, organised in association with CNBC Arabiya, would be presented to the winners at a gala dinner at the Marina Mandarin in Singapore on July 16.
Mah Sing said in a statement on April 29 the awards proved the group’s continued commitment to raise the benchmark as a premier lifestyle developer.
The Asia Pacific Property Awards 2009 was part of the International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious competition dedicated to finding the best real estate professionals across the globe.
Mah Sing was named a winner of these coveted awards for three years from 2007 to 2009 which proved that Malaysia was not only able to compete at this level but also excel in this highly competitive Asia Pacific property arena.
Its innovative product development and quality of finishes, as well as committed customer service saw the group taking top honours in the property category in recent The BrandLaureate 2008-2009 awards.
The group also won in three categories in the Euromoney Liquid Real Estate Award 2008, which were Best Developer, Overall – Malaysia; Best Office/Business Developer – Malaysia and Best Mixed-Use Developer – Malaysia.
Mah Sing group managing director Datuk Seri Leong Hoy Kum said the group was gratified to be recognised for its development on an international level.
“Buying a property is quite probably the most significant personal expense anyone is likely to make during their lifetime. As a developer that is setting global standards, we will continue striving to live up to our buyers expectations by offering quality properties.
“Coming hot on the heels of our recent win namely Best Brand in Property in the prestigious The BrandLaureate Awards 2008-2009, these awards serves to encourage us and allow us to stand out in the crowded market place. We will continue to build a leadership position for Mah Sing Group Berhad whilst contributing to branding Malaysia globally,” he said.
Mah Sing, meanwhile, extended their “Easy Home Ownership” campaign to June 30, 2009. The campaign is a financing programme for their residential and commercial properties.
Of the purchase price, buyers are required to pay only 5% for residential properties, and 15% for commercial properties, with the balance payable upon completion of the properties. For completed residential properties, buyers can reduce their monthly installment payments by servicing only the interest on their loan amount for the first five years. Mah Sing Group will absorb the legal fees for the sales and purchase agreement, loan documentation, and memorandum of transfer for selected properties.
Mah Sing Group has 16 projects in Klang Valley, Penang island and Johor Bahru with RM3.8 billion worth of remaining gross development value and unbilled sales as at Dec 31, 2008.
