Canadia's Siem Reap project to open June

A US$15 million development project in Siem Reap to erect a two-storey centre, containing 163 residential and business units, will be completed by June this year, a project manager of Canadia bank told the Post Wednesday.

The Angkor Shopping Arcade – construction on which began in June of 2008 – will be ready to receive residents and customers as early as this summer at its 2-hectare location west of the Siem Reap city centre on National Highway 6, said Sok Sambath, project manager of Commercial Housing and Building for Canadia Bank.

“As of current, the Angkor Shopping Arcade is 95 percent completed, with most of the unit spaces already sold,” said Sok Sambath.
The price tag for individual units ranges from US$115,000 to US$125,000.

Kerk Narin, general manager of Bonna Realty Group and secretary of the National Valuers Association in Cambodia, said the project would face low demand due to the continued property slump.

“People will need to save up a lot of money to buy a unit in the centre,” he said.
