This is a testament of the market’s confidence in our brands: in both M101 and also Hasbro. We have also received a significant interest from Hong Kong through another partner agency, Metrohomes. Overall, we are only opening 100 units for sale. Due to overwhelming interest, we are reserving 10 units for the local market so that Malaysians also have an opportunity to be part of the World’s first Monopoly-themed hotel.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partner agencies for their confidence in us. The group purchase today was the fruitful efforts of ANB Group, who also recently signed an en bloc purchase of RM100million for M101 Skywheel.” Dato’ Seth added.

Situated at Bukit Bintang, Monopoly Mansion by Sirocco, Kuala Lumpur will feature 255 rooms. The overall look and feel of the hotel will resonate of the distinctive character of Mr. Monopoly’s energetic, charming, experienced and successful lifestyle with class in a 1920s Gatsby feel – harkening back to Monopoly’s origins.

This allowed us to offered special discount to our purchasers which encouraged them to make payment of more than 80% upon signing the sales and purchase agreement,” said Dato’ Jay Teoh, CEO of ANB Group.
