The main thrust of Farlim's activities is the development of a new township known as Bandar Baru Ayer Itam on the island of Penang. The township is located in a targeted growth area, three miles from Georgetown.
It represents the single largest development undertaken by a private sector developer on the island, covering 356 acres and comprising approximately 13,000 residential and commercial units.
Bandar Baru Ayer Itam is being rapidly transformed into a fully-integrated township which comprised a commercial centre offering various services like hypermarket, banks, pharmacies, clinics, restaurants, post office, petrol kiosk, kindergartens, police stations and many others. The development in the Bandar Baru Ayer Itam township is expected to be completed by the year 2010.
To date, we have launched 13,046 units of residential and commercial properties in Bandar Baru Ayer Itam. Total number of units sold to date is 13,045 units with a total sales value of RM1.141 billion.

The project was completed in 1992 with a total sales value of RM61.25 million.
