Keppel Land has entered into a conditional joint venture agreement with Myanmar’s Shwe Taung Group to develop premium serviced residences and offices in Phase Two of Junction City, a landmark mixed-use development in Yangon’s central business district

KEPPEL Land on Wednesday said that it has signed a conditional joint venture agreement with Burmese conglomerate Shwe Taung Group to develop premium serviced residences and offices in the next phase of Junction City.

This is a mixed-use development in Yangon's central business district. Keppel Land's investment in this next phase will be about US$48.6 million.

The collaboration follows Keppel Land and Shwe Taung's first joint venture to develop Junction City Tower, a 23-storey Grade A office building in the first phase of the project. This was topped off in May 2016. When completed early next year, the office building Junction City Tower will offer a net leasable area of about 33,400 sq m of prime office space.

In phase two of the project, Keppel Land will hold 40 per cent stake in the serviced residences and office component, which will offer a gross floor area of about 50,000 sq m. The development will also house the first Sedona Suites in Myanmar comprising about 260 serviced apartments.
