The launch of the clusters Amanda and Btari - consisting of 400 residential housing units - in the Summarecon Bandung project was well received by the market last week. Within five hours all units were sold. The Summarecon Bandung project is an ambitious integrated city which includes residential areas, commercial areas and mixed-use areas in the Southeastern part of Bandung (West Java). The company behind this project is publicly-listed Summarecon Agung, an Indonesian real estate construction and development company.
The launch of the first two clusters of the Bandung project added about IDR 650 billion (approx. USD $47 million) in marketing sales (with a gross margin of 40-50 percent) for Summarecon Agung. Before the end of the year the company is also expected to launch the sale of two more clusters: the Condovillas (low-rise apartments) in both Summarecon Bekasi and Summarecon Serpong. Combined, these three projects are estimated to generate IDR 1.47 trillion (USD $107 million) in marketing sales. When added to marketing sales that were made earlier this year, then total sales rise to IDR 4.5 trillion (provided that all units will be sold).
The planned high-speed railway between Jakarta and Bandung has a very positive effect on the Summarecon Bandung project as the price of land in Bandung immediately rose after the Indonesian government confirmed that the train project will go-ahead. Initially, Summarecon Agung estimated that it could sell property in the Bandung project based on a price of IDR 6 million (USD $438) per square meter. However, after it was confirmed that Indonesia's first ever high-speed train will run between Jakarta and Bandung, the price rose to IDR 6.5 million per square meter.
In order to collect funds for further development of Summarecon Bandung (as well as other projects), Summarecon Agung may choose to conduct an initial public offering (IPO) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange for its subsidiary Summarecon Investment Property before the end of 2015 or in early 2016.
