Company: Selangor & Federal Territory Eurasian Association (SAFTEA)
SAFTEA broke ground for its new clubhouse at Jalan Bangsar Utama 8, Bangsar Utama, Kuala Lumpur.
Tentatively named Bangunan SAFTEA, the clubhouse will feature sports amenities and facilities to accommodate the association’s ongoing social and cultural activities. It will also function as the central meeting place for Eurasians nationwide, including the Eurasian Association chapters in Melaka, Johor, Penang, Sabah, Sarawak, and even Singapore.
The planned development includes SOHO suites and retail outlets, which will be launched for sale to SAFTEA members and the public. This will provide the association with a sustainable income, besides contributing towards the modernisation and urban development of this part of Kuala Lumpur.
Preliminary cost estimates to build the clubhouse and to develop the land are within the region of RM30 million. Ongoing fundraising efforts are aimed at raising RM1 million for the commencement of construction of the building.
