Developer's Background

MK Land Holdings Berhad (MK Land), is headed by YBhg Tan Sri Datuk Hj. Mustapha Kamal, who has been actively involved in the property industry for over 19 years under the banner of the EMKAY Group. Today, the Group has a diversifled porfolio of projects, which includes affordable housing, lifestyle living, commercial development, resorts, a water theme park, and property investments.

MK Land made its debut on the main board of Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange on 27 August 1999 with the injection by EMKAY Group of 3 major projects, Damansara Damai, Taman Bunga Raya, and Bukit Merah Laketown Resort. The EMKAY Group will be consolidating its property development business by injecting almost all of its remaining property development projects into MK Land. With this second injection, MK Land would have a total of 9 projects covering the states of Selangor, Perak and Kedah amounting to a total of 6.559 acres (2,654 ha) of land bank for development. The Gross Development Value of these projects to be developed over a period of 15 years is approximately RM19.7 billion. Six(6) more major projects, through 4 companies from the EMKAY Group, namely Saujana Triangle Sdn. Bhd., MK Development Sdn. Bhd., MKN Properties Sdn. Bhd. And Malika Holdings Sdn.Bhd. have been approved for injection into MK Land portfolio in November 2001. This second injection is pending completion very soon.

With the completion of the second injection MK Land would become firmly entrenched in the property development industry by being one of the largest public listed property companies in Malaysia with a paid up capital of RM1.174 billion.

In April 1995, the EMKAY Group, signed a Privatisation Agreement with the Selangor State Government to develop 50,000 units of low-cost homes on a 'Fast Track Basis'. Medan Prestasi Sdn Bhd. Was the vehicle that undertook this project and is now wholly owned subsidiary of MK Land. Since then the Group has emerged as one of the major developers of affordable homes (which comprise of low-cost, low-medium cost and medium-cost).

In Addition, as part of MK Land's commitment to provide excellent after sales service, a Customer Service Department has been set up to provide comprehensive services to all its valued customers. The objective of the Department is to ensure that any complains arising during the defect liability period are resolved promptly and satisfactory. The department also inspects all properties to ensure that there are no defects prior to the handing over of keys.
