Dear Friends, Investors and Partners,
Please find the latest update from the Yoma Central construction site below.
We are proud to launch this month a brand new Yoma Central website. We invite you to visit us here, to discover new dimensions to our project and how this fully integrated city quarter at the heart of Downtown Yangon will foster a thriving community of business, lifestyle and cultural interests in Myanmar.
We will also use the website platform to publish regular stories, profiles and project updates. So, if you haven’t already, we can recommend following us on social media to stay up to date with all the latest news and feature articles. You can also find links for our Facebook and LinkedIn page.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to get in touch. We would love to hear from you!

The construction of level 10 has been completed and is progressing at level 11. The Peninsula Residences Yangon is currently 6 floors taller than the adjacent hotel, The Peninsula Yangon.
The first façade panels received customs clearance and are currently in storage awaiting the construction to reach level 13.
We have already started blockwork at level 6 so the first apartments are fast taking shape. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are being implemented from levels 5 and 6 and the Tower 1 plaza area from Alan Pya Pagoda Road is almost complete.
