BUYERS looking to invest in homes where they can be closer to nature should look into Sunway Cassia located in Batu Maung, Penang, which is built with the green concept in mind.
True to its theme, the developers of Sunway Cassia, Sunway City Berhad, has set up 0.8ha (two acres) of Nature Reserve Park in its vicinity where residents can jog or go jungle trekking to unwind after an arduous day at work.
According to Sunway City general manager Tan Hun Beng, the nature park is the first of its kind in Penang and the concept would be well received by buyers and investors.
“Besides designing a conducive home, the environmental aspect is also very important as you do not want to come home to an unpleasant environment,” said Tan.
“The environment has to blend in with the home and this will make residents who live there feel fresh and energetic whenever they come home.”
The Sunway Cassia is divided into two phases whereby Phase 1 will involve the completion of 33 units of three-storey terrace houses with a built-up area of 2,808sq ft to 3,265sq ft. The price per unit will start from RM850,000 onwards.
Phase 2 of Sunway Cassia is expected to be completed in 2012, while other future developments for Sunway City include Sunway Merica in Sungai Ara and Sunway Aspera in Sungai Batu.
For Sunway Merica, there will be 98 units of three-storey terrace houses as well as semi-detached units.
Expected to be completed at the end of the year, the Sunway Merica units have a built-up area of 2,715sq ft to 3,021sq ft for the terrace houses priced from RM919,700 onwards, while the three-storey smi-detached units will be of 3,973sq ft at a starting price of RM1.5mil.
The Sunway Aspera consists of 85 two-storey and three-storey terrace house units, with a gross built-up area of 1,840sq ft to 2,718sq ft for the two-storey terrace houses, and about 2,040sq ft for the three-storey houses.
Expected to be completed by next year, the project is within proximity to the Penang Interna-tional Airport via Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah and the second Penang bridge link in Batu Maung.
