For FAM Holdings, property development is more than constructing buildings. It is about maximising the potential of a location to its fullest and creating welcoming environments - transforming it into a venue that serves several purposes, whether residential, commercial or industrial.

Since transforming the once-underdeveloped area near Malaysia's tourist hot spot Batu Caves into a thriving estate bustling with activity, FAM has continued to uphold its belief in value creation.

Established in 1981, FAM develops lifestyle properties, including mixed-use developments, affordable housing and entrepreneurial parks, that offer more value to clients. Its project, Taynton Harmoni, offers city dwellers their own private sanctuary as a respite from their fast-paced routines. A gated community in Klang Valley in Kuala Lumpur, Taynton Harmoni features 16 boutique bungalows amid pockets of lush greenery.

"Taynton Harmoni differs from apartment building developments because it embodies community living," says Liew Hoong, CEO. "People seek human interaction and happy environments nowadays, which is what Taynton Harmoni offers."

Building on its track record in Malaysia, FAM has forayed into international property development ventures. In cooperation with the local government, FAM is in negotiations to plan for a HK$374 million mixed-development project in the central business district of Heyuan.

Property development is only one of FAM's many crown jewels.

It also specialises in investment holdings, operating and managing palm oil plantations, timber extraction, trading, travel and leisure, and information technology. FAM also helped the Democratic Republic of the Congo to sustainably commercialise its resources. The initiative resulted in infrastructure development, creation of jobs and livelihood opportunities in the country.

With deep ties in Congo, FAM opens doors for international investors to support the growing mining, construction and plantation industries there.

"We want to help Congo expand its network to Asia. We welcome partners who want to take part in this exciting phase. Opportunities await," Liew says.
