Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. and Mitsui Fudosan Residential Co., Ltd. decided to participate in the “Conlay Project (tentative name)”, a high-rise condominium project (approx. 300 units) in central Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, through their joint venture, Mitsui Fudosan Asia Pte. Ltd. (headquartered in Singapore), and that they have therefore concluded a joint venture agreement with the joint venture partner Eastern & Oriental Berhad (E&O). With the addition of this project, Mitsui Fudosan now has 13 residential projects under way in Southeast Asia, and 15 projects including retail facilities.

This project is a condominium with a total of 298 units in an eastern tower of 29 floors and western tower of 39 floors. The project is located in an exclusive residential area of central Kuala Lumpur that has long been home to second residences of regional nobility and has been developed in recent years into a luxury residential district. The area is adjacent to Kuala Lumpur’s largest retail area (Bukit Bintang) and adjoins the Prince Court Medical Centre, a flagship facility for high quality medical care in Malaysia.

Malaysia has a high level of urban infrastructure development, and the residential real estate market holds great potential for further increase in scale. The Mitsui Fudosan Group has already recorded brisk sales in its ongoing condominium projects, THE MEWS (a joint project with E&O in central Kuala Lumpur) and GEO Residences (located in Daerah Petaling, approximately 15 kilometers from central Kuala Lumpur).

E&O is a leading listed developer company in Malaysia that specializes in luxury condominium development, mainly in central Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Bahru. In carrying out the project together with E&O, Mitsui Fudosan will leverage the expertise it has accumulated in housing development, marketing, and other aspects in the course of conducting business in Japan and Singapore.

The Mitsui Fudosan Group has positioned the overseas business as one of its growth areas. In Asia, the Group also has residential projects in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China. In Malaysia, the Group has ongoing projects including “Mitsui Outlet Park Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (tentative name),” and in China, the Group is developing business including the shopping centers “Shanjing Outlet Plaza-Ningbo,” “LaLaport Shanghai Jinqiao (tentative tame),” and in Taiwan, the “Taiwan Linkou Outlet Project (tentative name).” Under “Innovation 2017,” the Group's long-term business plan for FY2012 to FY2017 announced in 2012, the Group is planning to execute investments of approximately ¥500 billion in Europe, America, and Asia by FY2017.
