The man committed to create transformation to communities is Dato’ Kee Lian Yong. He carries a high philosophy in life by being conscientious as he permeates good intention through positive commitment for the society, since indulging in property development six years ago. Kee, a qualified chartered accountant, is proud of his achievements, having said that most of his projects have been completed.
Group managing director Kee is a modest philanthropist, with his responsibilities towards his men and nation at large. He spear-headed his group of companies, KM Land Group, established in 2010, as it escalated to a higher cause with few more development projects in the frontline within the coming years. In total, its gross development value (GDV) has exceeded RM700million with a few more project developments in the pipeline with a projected GDV of RM5billion.
His strategies in creating an uplifted lifestyle and being a trendsetter, has given a lot of exposure in areas of project concept, value, sustainability and amenities for the buyers. KM Land’s area of concentration lie within bringing the city lifestyle to small towns. He has create substantial value to untapped lands and given a metropolitan rebound towards rural development in areas like Sabak Bernam, Sekinchan and Kuala Selangor, with a modern twist.
Among his completed projects include phase 1 of One Kesas that is located in Klang, fully sold. It is a 6.7ha integrated commercial project with a hotel, educational centre, retail and wholesale shop lots, a food haven with F&B dining in an al fresco style, along with the largest premier banquet hall in Klang that accommodates up to 1,600 pax. One Kesas being a social landmark, is currently underway with phase 2, particularly concentrating on lifestyle concepts, with around 75% of its units already sold.
Even though Klang is a matured township, there are no prevailing lifestyle or monumental hubs for the residents to relate or fall back on. A lack of vibrant and exuberating lifestyle can elude the younger generation to move to other exciting and lively cities. Nonetheless, Kee has spotted this as an economic and social exodus for Klang, and decided a change is needed to sustain this gateway.
Kee commented “I spotted that this project land in Klang South with nearby matured neighbourhood such as Bukit Tinggi and Bandar Botanics, One Kesas has a main road frontage and direct access from KESAS highway, and convenient accessibility via Federal Elite highway, South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) and Pulau Indah highway,”
“I can safely reiterate that One Kesas is a piece of essential development. It has a unique one-stop project that minimises movement and secures the outflow of potential economic business entities,” Kee said. He added that One Kesas housed commercial outlets, an alfresco square, education centre, a boutique hotel to accommodate business travellers especially from the logistics sector with its close proximity to Port Klang.
General manager, marketing and strategic planning Katherine Chu added “First time property buyers are attracted to the key features for this commercial property such as 3-tiered security, 1,200 parking bays, open courtyard, educational centre and banquet facilities,”
She further reiterated that despite the current economic slowdown and lending restriction from the banks which caused challenging time for investors, KM Land has been right on the mark to complete and hand over in time to create value and trust for the investors. “I am proud to say that our past projects like One Residence in Sekinchan, SB Perdana at Sabak Bernam and Sungkai Perdana had a great take up rate and helped the town to set a trendy lifestyle amidst its rural appearances,”
“Our upcoming residential and commercial projects in hand include a first of its kind trendsetting lifestyle development with innovative concept located in Kuala Selangor, Sekinchan and an integrated highland eco-tourism project with a land area of 420ha in Cameron Highlands,”said Chu.
Kee firmly believes that a forward looking organisation is committed to projects, developed with quality and value creation and sustainable development. With conscientious and commitment, one can truly contribute to society, and this is what gives him a broader overview to sail through in the future.
