BTW Meongdong is a district in Seoul, South Korea. It covers 0.99 km² with a population of 3,409 and is mostly a commercial area, being one of Seoul's main shopping and tourism districts.[1] In 2011, 2012 and 2013, Myeong-dong was listed as the ninth most expensive shopping street in the world.[2][3][4] The area is known for its two historically significant sites, namely the Myeongdong Cathedral and the Myeongdong Nanta Theatre.[

See Hoy Chan and 4 storey shoplots in Damansara Uptown

How many of the 394 4 storey shop-offices in Damansara Uptown business hub does See Hoy Chan owns in addition of the multi-storey office towers (other than TH Damansara which had been sold to Tabung Haji), Uptown 7 (multi-storey carpark), the upcoming Uptown 8 office tower?

According to the Edge Property, See Hoy Chan currently owns 53 of the 394 (12.5%) 4 storey shop-offices in Uptown Damansara.

See Hoy Chan & Uptown going for listing?

Paramount Gardens, See Hoy Chan and Bandar Utama are all owned by the scions of the late China born Teo Soo Cheng (but all are independent of each other with no one of the 3 companies owing share of the other 2. Paramount Gardens is already listed on the KLSE so it is no surprise that there other 2 may including SHCSB want to list theirs as well.

So it was no surprise when there were rumors that speculated SHCSB may w`ant to go for listing on the KLSE when the whole of Damansara Uptown is fully developed. Is now the time when the last plot of empty land is being developed into Uptown 8, an office tower?

If news of this new update on See Hoy Chan and Uptown Damansara as reported in theedgemarket.com is accurate then this SHCSB will soon become a reality:
https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/newsbreak-see-hoy-chan-looking-reit-listing

It had been reported that See Hoy Chan is seeking a senior REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) manager to spearhead the listing of See Hoy Chan properties into a REIT on Bursar Malaysia.

Will that come to pass? Only time will tell but I am guessing that will be a reality soon as SHCSB already have enough assets to justify a listing.

Starling birds murmuration - reasons for Starling Mall name.

Starling birds are little social songbirds which tend to flock together. See Hoy Chan, the developer of the Starling Mall wants their boutique mall to be a place for

Because wants people (which are also social creatures) gather together, they have created lots of open air parks with grass and trees at both ground floor as well as the top floor where MBO cinema is located. See Hoy Chan, the developer, called their parks the Chirp Park.

The Uptown Secret Garden's koi pond had been filled up and now feature an open stage with grassland for people to gather for events.

BTW it is very interesting to see how starling birds fly together in murmuration (flock) and below I will embed a video which I initially obtained from a Whatsapp chat which was then uploaded to Youtube plus some "no known copyright restrictions" photos from Flickr showing the starling bird as well as murmuration (flock):



No... these aren't storm clouds.
They are tiny songbirds known as starlings.
Starlings flock together in thousands.
Their shifting movements are called "murmurations".
How can they fly so close without bumping into each others?
It's a mysterious miracle!
The mystery has fascinated scientists in many fields.
Biologists, physicists, and engineers have all tried to solve the problem.
One theory is that individuals birds follow their neighbors' lead
There are nearly 120 species of starlings.
You can find multiple starling species within the same murmuration.
During murmuration, starlings are constantly on the move.
The unpredictablility of their shapes is a mesmerizing phenomenon.
