SP Setia buying Melbourne site for RM92mil


Australia property is creating lots of news (see my previous posts)… Even our local neighbourhood developer SP Setia Bhd is acquiring land in Melbourne Australia. SP Setia is a well established Property Developer in Malaysia and has Home Developments in Vietnam. Now they are gunning Australia. See excerpt below:

PETALING JAYA: SP Setia Bhd is buying a 0.42ha site in Melbourne’s Central Business District for A$30mil (RM92.4mil) to undertake a high-density inner-city integrated residential and commercial project.

In a statement to Bursa Malaysia yesterday, SP Setia said its unit Setia International Ltd would acquire the land from S.L. Nominees Pty Ltd and Jonquil Pty Ltd.

We will update this when more information is available. Meanwhile, anyone else to join the bandwagon??
