Come October 2016, the affluently plush Toul Kork neighbourhood will welcome a new glamourous kid on the block. Hailing from Taiwan, developer Top Team International Development Co. Ltd. will erect a 34-storey, mixed-use development that will feature three underground floors – to conveniently free up the streets for parking space for its residents.

Blending in with the posh environment, Top King Building serves up its own brand of luxury, comprising premium residential units, lush office spaces, and an entire floor on the 14th level solely dedicated to be a relaxation arena. This entertainment complex will have a Chinese-Western buffet restaurant, a separate cafeteria, three multifunctional rooms, as well as other multipurpose facilities and amenities.

Its unique mixed-use elements are balanced, with the second to 13th floors reserved for office space, while residences begin from the 15th to the 33rd level. Each residential floor comprises 21 units, rounding up to a total of 399 units of one and two-bedroom layouts. A balcony in each 60.9 square metre one-bedroom unit ensures you get the best view of the bustling capital city.

No upscale condominium or mixed-use building is ever complete without a rooftop pool or a lounge bar. Top King promises the highest swimming pool – an infinity one, at that – in Toul Kork on its 34th rooftop level dubbed the official entertainment centre, where residents can kick back and laze their free time away while sipping on cocktails ordered straight from the accompanying SKY bar.

As for the first and second levels, residents are free to exercise their retail desires at the shops spanning both storeys.

With recent earthquake scares in nearby country Myanmar, the developers of Top King have taken measures to ensure that their debut project makes its residents as safe and secure as possible. The building’s foundation structure will be a foundation pile of 30 metres, with an additional basement raft foundation encircling a continuous wall construction to prevent potential earthquakes from damaging the building’s foundation.

Residents of Top King need not fret about options for their lifestyle necessities; with various international banks, schools, universities, clinics, and the T.K Avenye shopping mall directly opposite Top King, its location is at the zenith of opulence. For enhanced security, nearby Street 289 houses a military police headquarters.

Slated for completion in 2019, Top King at Toul Kork is a promising haven for those seeking unparalleled leisure, relaxation, and recreation within their own residential compound.

Construction workers hard at work in Phnom Penh. The real estate boom is creating jobs for more than 200,000 Cambodians. Pha Lina

The real estate and construction sector continues to be an important driver for job creation in the Kingdom, with the industry creating employment for more than 200,000 Cambodians during the non-harvesting season, according to the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction (MLMUPC).

Lao Tip Seiha, undersecretary of state for the MLMUPC, said recently the real estate and construction sector was providing jobs for many Cambodians who are temporary migrants from the provinces.

When not in the farming season, they flock to the capital in search of laborious but better-paying jobs. In the rainy cum harvesting season, these workers return to their sustenance of agriculture work in the provinces.

Thus, the real estate and construction sector has become one of the largest contributors to the improving economic health of Cambodia, coming in behind the garment and tourism sector. The garment sector provides employment for an estimated 800,000 people.

Touch Samnang, project manager of local real estate and construction conglomerate Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC) which employs more than 10,000 people, said most workers in this particular sector are Cambodians.

These low-skilled workers command an approximate 14,000 to 16,000 riel ($3.50 to $4) a day, while labour wages for general and skilled workers range from 16,000 to 40,000 riel ($4 to $10) per day.

Samnang also noted there has been an increase in labour wages for local workers these past few months which have helped enhance their overall livelihoods, but did not disclose the exact amount as these wages vary from company to company.

Meng Chamroeun, head of OCIC’s Olympia City development, said most Cambodian workers have not gone through proper training, leading to the inferior quality of their work, and, in turn, receiving wages in the lower rung.

“Regardless, some Cambodian workers do provide quality work, but because this sector needs many workers, we are lacking workers or skilled workers who are Cambodian,” he said.

“Wages earned by Cambodian workers are based on their skills and experience, but the average labour fee has increased, although minimally, in the last few years.”

While it is encouraging that the real estate and construction sector is prospering, there have been negative repercussions rippling through an otherwise blooming industry.

Just last month, the general department of immigration of the Ministry of Interior issued a report that over 10,000 illegal workers – 90 percent of whom were Vietnamese – have been deported since the start of this year, the bulk of which were working in the construction sector.

The almost decade-long, drama-shrouded Gold Tower 42 is an icon in itself. Photo supplied

A knight in shining armour could be on the horizon for the besieged Gold Tower 42, but the long-running saga looks set to continue in the absence of any formal offers.

The development, which has been little changed since its 2010 suspension, has yet to pick up from where it left off on the 32nd floor, out of the planned 42 floors.

The Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning, and Construction (MLMUPC) is attempting to put an end to the woes that have engulfed the tower, persistently calling on the heads of the project’s developer Yon Woo Co. Ltd. to keep up with their promises of maintaining discussions with the ministry in an attempt to come to a resolution.

At the CamBuild ’16 construction exhibition held at the Diamond Island Exhibition Centre last weekend, Pen Sophal, secretary of state for the MLMUPC, said that MLMUPC senior minister Chea Sophara had been informed of potential investors keen to take over the comatose Gold Tower 42.

“The ministry has enough legal framework to force the completion of the construction, but it is the government’s objective to go with the softer approach in order to garner more international investors,” Sophal continued.

Nevertheless, no further details were given on the nature of this legal framework and what legitimate prowess it has to continue pushing for the eventual completion of the project.

Post Property was referred by Seng Lot, spokesman for MLMUPC, to Huy Nara, general secretariat of construction, who has been tasked by Sophara to oversee the entire issue, including calling for a formal letter from Yon Woo entailing negotiations and monitoring investor interest in the project.

Nara could not be contacted for information on further details of the mystery potential buyer for the development through his personal phone.

Cheng Kheng, chairman of Huttons CPL’s board of directors, said all hope was not lost for Gold Tower 42: “If there is no hope of completion, it is still okay because the construction is in a very good location that even I would want to buy the project, if all else fails.”

He continued, “Before this, the company that invested in this project had come and discussed it with me, but I told them that I can only help in selling the building if it’s completed; I cannot help them if there is no hope of completion.”

Kim Heang, president of the Cambodian Valuers and Estate Agents Association, confirmed there were investors looking to purchase the incomplete project, but are hesitating because the ministry has yet to resolve the matter with Yon Woo.

He continued, “The MLMUPC and the Ministry of Economy and Finance should come together and discuss how to solve this problem because it has already become a disease, so should we cut off our arm? Or should we keep feeding the pathogen until it eats us alive?”

“If the project is solid and open to the public to bid and buy, I’m sure that there will be a lot of buyers because from what I know, there are many people who want to buy this project right now.”

The Gold Tower 42 project was tipped to be Cambodia’s tallest building – at 192 metres high – when it initially broke ground in 2008. While construction came to a halt in 2009, the development has been stop-start for years.

An anonymus real estate industry insider speculated in front of Post Property earlier this year that while foreign developers would steer clear of such a dogged development, only a local developer with adequate resources might snatch up Gold Tower 42 and complete it without relying on initial speculative funding from project pre-sales – a local developer with direct access to funds of a local commercial bank of which kind there is only one, he said.

Mr Por Lim, General Manager of Starbucks Cambodia, remarked, “We are excited to bring the Starbucks experience to even more customers in Phnom Penh when we open our doors at EXCHANGE SQUARE.”

The building’s topping out ceremony, held on June 28, was attended by government and embassy officials, along with partners and business leaders, in a show of support for the development. Mr Pieter Claudel, Director of Yves Rocher, added, “Given EXCHANGE SQUARE’s central location and its attractive tenant mix as well as the quality construction and parking provisions, we are confident that the development will provide visitors with a great and an all-encompassing lifestyle experience.”

As Mr Robert Garman, Executive Director of Hongkong Land noted, “Across Southeast Asia, we have for many years been building world-class office and retail space. We are now transferring this expertise to EXCHANGE SQUARE in Cambodia, which will transform this part of Phnom Penh by attracting new businesses, retailers and customers.”
