SUBANG JAYA (July 9): Sunway Property, the real estate arm of Sunway Bhd, aims to launch six new projects and phases in existing projects worth RM1.5 billion in the second half (2H) of this year, said managing director of the property development division Malaysia/Singapore Sarena Cheah at a media briefing today.

“Amidst the softer sentiment, we are pleased to see that there is still demand for our properties. We believe that the positive reception that we have received is due to our build, own, operate business model, displaying our commitment as a holistic master community developer,” she told reporters.

Sarena Cheah Sunway“We will continue to monitor the market in the next six months, while we target our new launches to start from RM500,000,” she added.
