Mah Sing gets nod for addition at Southville City

KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Group Bhd has increased the gross development value (GDV) of its 428-acre (173.2ha)   Southville [email protected] South project in Bangi, Selangor by 62% to RM8.3 billion from the initial RM5.13 billion after it secured the approval of the authorities for the township’s master plan, which now includes a 2km stretch of commercial development fronting the North-South Highway.

The take-up rate has been encouraging for Phase 1 of Southville [email protected] South, which includes the Savanna Executive Suites, with RM600 million sales achieved, said Mah Sing in a statement yesterday.

“Construction has commenced for Phase 1 of Southville [email protected] South. The approved direct interchange is estimated to be completed simultaneously with the completion of Savanna Executive Suites,” the property developer added.

Phase 2 of Southville City, called Avens Residence, comprises 196 units of 2½-storey and 3-storey link homes. Over the weekend, 80% of the 80 units out of 112 two and a half-storey link homes opened for pre-selection were

taken up, recording sales of RM61 million. Avens Residence is due for official launch in mid-June.

“It is Mah Sing’s master plan to develop Southville City as a self-contained haven, slightly outside the city where parents can raise their children in a holistic suburban lifestyle, and still easily travel to the city for work purposes,” Mah Sing group managing director and chief executive Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum said in the statement.
