PAPAR: The mixed development of WSG Group - Parklane City and Benoni Commercial Centre (BCC) - have great potential to be developed as another small new township in Papar apart from Kinarut and Kimanis.

In total, both have more than 1,000 residential properties in the form of condominiums and terrace houses as well as commercial shoplots, hypermarkets, a nine-hall cinema and  commercial banks that will create a few thousand job opportunities here, upon completion.

WSG Group managing director Datuk Susan Wong Siew Guen said the development has good prospect and features to be recognised as another new township here.

She said the development in Parklane City would start to be a thriving and prosperous place once its 24 units of three-storey shoplots is completed by next month, followed by 10Star Cinemas by March next year, McDonald’s by June next and Servay Hypermarket by December next year. 

Susan said, recently, top management of 4Fingers Crispy Chicken, led by its executive chairman Rohan St George, visited Parklane City sales gallery and expressed its interest to open an outlet in Papar. 

“The fast food restaurant is keen to open its outlet at a three-storey shoplot in Parklane City in January, and will operate a drive-thru later.

“With this upcoming business, Parklane City and Benoni Commercial Centre will become a haven for food lovers,” she said.

Susan said more and more businesses are eager to operate in Parklane City as the three-storey shoplots are about to obtain occupancy certificate (OC) by the end of the year. 

“Next year, Parklane City will be even more prosperous with the opening of new shops,” she said that after handing over keys to the owners of the newly-completed Benoni Gardens Tower B here, recently.  Also present was WSG Group director Vanessa Wong.

Majority of the homeowners cited the strategic location of Benoni Gardens which is very close to the Pan Borneo Highway and short-walking distance to buy groceries as among their main reasons for purchasing the property. 

Kevin Yong, 32, from Keningau who works in a fertiliser factory said he bought the unit because of the location which is not far from Keningau and good return of investment in the future following growth of development in the area.

He said the variety of shops in BCC is a positive plus factor for good investment as he is considering to rent out the unit to earn extra income.

For Muhammad Akmal Wafi Azizmai, 27, a teacher at SMK St Mary, Limbahau and his wife Syazwani Sarni, 28, who is teaching at SK Rancangan Klias, Beaufort, are eager to move into their new home with their two children. 

Rohenah Adek, 35, who is a teacher at SMK Takis, said she and her husband, who is an oil palm smallholder in Keningau can’t wait to move into their unit which is near her school and not far from his workplace.
