"In addition, it is an example of yet another successful turnaround and revitalisation of what was previously an abandoned development into a commercially viable economic contributor," Dato' Leong added.
Metrasquare was an abandoned project under Plentifield Marketing, which Sheng Tai International took over in 2017 in order to develop Metrasquare further. However, the previous developer abandoned the development when it was half completed.
Sheng Tai International came in and revitalised the project, from settling all the bad debts and Guaranteed Rental Return (GRR) scheme of the initial investors to restrategising the masterplan Metrasquare.
