Yoma Central Newsletter - September 2020
Dear Friends, Investors and Partners,
This month we would like to share the progress on site prior to 21 September Stay At Home Order issued by MOHS, as well showcase the profile of our Project Manager, Mr Ko Ko Win Swe Tun and announce the arrival of an International Sales Director Mrs Cindy Chick.
In an effort to support our neighborhood Yoma Central Project has donated urgently needed cash, PPEs and accessories worth 5.1 million MMK to Pabaden Township Covid-19 Control and Emergency Response Committee on 21 September 2020. The chairman of our township’s Covid-19 Committee accepted the donation with adherence to social distancing regulations.
Just before the Stay at Home Order the construction work has been progressing on all four towers (with The Peninsula Residences now coming up to level 15), the basement and podium. We have also begun the second phase of mechanical, electrical and plumbing works on site and cheered the completion of the Energy Centre at Tower 3. For more details, see the construction report below.
Despite the pandemic the leasing activities for both office and retail have been making good progress.
