Star City Zone B


Opening new horizons

Dragages Singapore Pte Ltd in joint venture with SPA Project Management Pte Ltd, has been awarded by Thanlyin Estate Development Ltd the design and build for the second phase of Star City, a prominent residential estate featuring 4,980 apartments, car parks and communal facilities located along the Pagu River in the outskirts of Yangon, Myanmar.
The Dragages Singapore led joint venture, BYMA, will undertake the engineering and construction of 3 blocks of 8 storey buildings, and 2 blocks of 12 storey buildings totaling 114,000 m2 of gross floor area together with associated infrastructure. Work started in 2013 and the project is due to be completed less than three years later.
BYMA combines the development expertise and local knowledge of SPA Project Management Pte Ltd with the large-scale international construction experience of Bouygues Construction. 
Thanlyin Estate Development Ltd and SPA Project Management Pte Ltd are part of Yoma Strategic Holdings, a leading business corporation with real estate, agriculture and automobile dealership interests in Myanmar listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Securities Exchange Trading Limited (SGX-ST).
This is Dragages Singapore’s first contract in Myanmar following the opening of the country and the suspension of international economic sanctions.
Technical Expertise

More than 500 staff and workers will be employed on the project and will be trained to modern construction techniques. Know-how transfer will be one of the key factors to the success of the project, as well as an important part of BYMA’s contribution to the development of this emerging country.
