For the upcoming projects, they consist 3,648 units that will be released from May to November 2016. Located in Bayan Lepas, these are near the Penang International Airport as well as the first and second bridges, he noted.

In particular, the company intends to unveil the RM495 million Forest Ville project in May, followed by the August launches for the RM300 million Amarene project, the RM550 million Queens Residences and the Bukit Ayun Development, which has a gross development value (GDV) of RM1 billion

Except for the units at Queens Residences and Bukit Ayun, which will be priced from RM600,000 to RM900,000 each, the houses in the other projects will cost between RM450,000 and RM600,000.

In addition, the developer plans to release 10,000 units of low-cost homes costing below RM400,000 in Penang Island in the next few years that will have a combined GDV of around RM3.8 billion.

Meanwhile, the company will embark on a corporate exercise in 2H 2016 that would result in the injection of RM1 billion worth of properties into its subsidiary, Ideal United Bintang Bhd (IdealUBB).

“This is part of an on-going corporate exercise over five years to turn IdealUBB into a property company. We will initiate the corporate move after June when IdealUBB closes its second quarter,” said Ooi.

He added that IdealUBB would eventually own the aforementioned 10,000 affordable homes, likewise for some of the condominium projects in Penang this year.
