Robert Kuok’s PPB Group Bhd proposed to tear down the Ming Tien Food Court at Taman Megah and redevelop it into a mixed development comprising 31-storey serviced apartment and retail space.
The freehold site, measuring 3.36-acre, covers the popular Ming Tien Food Court, Michael’s Badminton Academy, the discount store Fun Cheer and pet store The Pet Family. The project is targeted to launch in second half of 2017, the proposed development is expected to generate GDV of RM500 mil to the group. Work is expected to commence after Ming Tien’s closure on 31st Oct 2017, and the project is scheduled to take four years to complete.
The 228 units of serviced apartment will be built on top of a 7-storey car park podium. The retail podium will have one block with 4-storey and the tenant mix will be mainly grocer, healthcare, restaurants and food court. Ming Tien hawkers would be given the option to run their stalls at the planned food court upon completion. The 2-level basement car park will have 440 parking bays to cater to shoppers, Taman Megah market goers and visitors. On the top floor of the retail podium, there will be a multipurpose community hall with six badminton courts for the enjoyment of surrounding community. PPB Property will manage the community hall and retail space to ensure there is right mix of tenants. PPB targets to bring in a premium grocery store to cater to the immediate community as that is not available at the moment.
The project is expected to be well received as there is not much freehold development in the surrounding area. The site is also very strategic with easy access to Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong, and Taman Bahagia LRT station is just 400m away. For those who love convenience, Taman Megah Market is just right next to the site and the site is also surrounded by matured commercial shoplots with plenty of eateries, banks and stores.
