"The service apartment will have 164 units and the price ranges from RM600 and RM900 psf. The retail component, however, has been sold to a Khazanah Nasional Bhd’s unit for RM44 million," he said after the company's breaking of fast

Zulkifly said UM Land has a landbank of approximately 400ha and 120ha in Johor and Selangor respectively while in Kuala Lumpur it has several parcels with sizes of around two to four ha each.
