WHAT comes easy won’t always last. And what will last, won’t always come easy. This saying reflects the work philosophy of Datuk Ng Thien Phing, the founder and group managing director of SkyWorld.
From humble beginnings, he has toiled to become one of today’s most promising city developers. And SkyWorld has made a mark with its niche ‘sky living’ developments.
“I was born into a family of five in Kuala Krai, Kelantan. My father was a hardworking lorry driver and my mother a modest homemaker,” said Ng.
“I am the eldest sibling and only son. We lived in a small one-bedroom rented house.
“Our friends and neighbours would talk about buying new toys, clothes and bicycles. Our family’s priority was to own a home.”
Open door and teamwork
Ng is the type of boss who believes in teamwork and keeping his office door open.
“At times, being open to new ideas and entrusting my team have its perks. I place much emphasis on staff selection and then see to it that everyone has a positive outlook that is aligned with our vision & mission.
“I welcome suggestions from employees on how to further develop the company, taking into account the importance of good location in a practical yet cosy setting for our purchasers.
“We end up with unique high-rise homes featuring designs that once existed only in landed properties, such as higher ceilings, bespoke balconies and locker rooms next to your car park. Some of our units even have private car park located next to the unit and our smaller studio units (part of dual-key units) even comes with balconies!”
Making the right move
Ng is a firm believer in getting the right people, and making the right move at the right time and place.
Since young, his inspiration is to create a better communal living space where everyone lives together in harmony.
“It took six years to set up a management team comprising top industry personnel, lay the foundation of a strong talent pool, and actively explore quality land banks which SkyWorld now owns,” said Ng.
Though shaped less than a decade ago, SkyWorld has recorded positive growth and reached new heights.
“Our winning formula is location, location, location. We decided to select land banks within KL city, and positioned ourselves as a city developer,” explained Ng.
Additionally, SkyWorld stands by its three key pillars of value creation, sky living and innovation.
The company aspires to be the best city developer in Malaysia that offers sky living within a sustainable environment.
The only reason why SkyWorld has opted to build abodes in the air is because all its land banks are inside the city and the only way is to build up.
As a city developer, Skyworld is transforming the skyline and providing exclusive sky living experiences to its purchasers.
Ng said: “Not many developers in Malaysia are in a niche position like us.
“We have more than 137 acres of quality land bank in Kuala Lumpur. With such a unique and strategic landbank, SkyWorld complements larger township developments through the creation of integrated city developments,” Ng concluded.
Get ready to experience a higher quality of life
Currently the developer boasts varied projects that are enjoying positive take-up rates which include – Ascenda Residences @ SkyArena, Setapak; SkyAwani Residence @ Sentul; SkyAwani 2 Residences @ Off Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur; Bennington Residences @ SkyArena, Setapak and SkyLuxe On The Park @ Bukit Jalil.
Looking to the future, SkyWorld is planning to launch a handful of integrated developments worth an estimated GDV of RM1.6 billion which would be released beginning from the third quarter of this year in Taman Desa, Setapak, Bandar Baru Sentul, and Setiawangsa.
