SIP Phase 1 due for completion by year-end

KUCHING: The much anticipated first commercial hub in Samalaju Industrial Park (SIP), Bintulu is progressing as scheduled.

The construction of Phase 1 — the three- storey commercial units — would be completed by year- end.

Buyers of these limited units are expected to move in and commence business operations within the first quarter of next year.

Located approximately 60km from Bintulu, Samalaju Central is part of a 81-acre mixed development project of three-storey commercial units, semi-detached and detached industrial units, and vacant industrial lots.

Samalaju Central is within a 5km radius from the pioneer batch of energy-intensive industries such as OM Materials (Sarawak), Tokuyama, Press Metal, Pertama Ferroalloys and Sakura Ferroalloys that are or willsoon-be operational — making it the perfect location to serve these multi- billion ringgit investors.

Samalaju Properties Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Goh Chii Yew said: “Samalaju Central is a 129-unit commercial development project where Phase 1, consisting of 34 units, has achieved approximately 66 per cent overall completion, while works on some of the blocks have reached an advanced stage of 70 per cent completion.

“Each commercial unit comes with a 99-year lease, individual title and all floors are approved for commercial use. Varied gross floor area ranges from 368 to 674 square meters, and attractive selling price that starts from RM892,000 per unit after rebate and inclusive of six per cent GST ( Goods and Services Tax) — making these commercial units in Samalaju Central well sought after by the discerning public.”

Buyers who pay booking fee from now until Aug 31 stand a chance to get additional cash rebate worth RM8,000 on any unit purchased. The lucky seventh buyer stands a chance to win additional gifts from the developer.
