RM10mil swanky clubhouse

Property News/ 31 December 2011 Leave a comment

DNP Land Sdn Bhd will spend RM10mil on a chic and trendy-looking community clubhouse within its upcoming Jesselton Hills mixed development project in Alma, Bukit Mertajam.

Its northern region general manager K.C. Tan said property owners in the residential scheme would not be charged any membership fee to use the facilities.

“We will only collect a small amount in annual subscription fees from house buyers who wish to use the clubhouse facilities.

“We will also waive their subscription fees for the first two years upon purchasing their unit,” he said during a recent sneak preview of the clubhouse at the DNP Land’s Impiana sales gallery on Jalan Rozhan in Bukit Mertajam.

Believed to Penang’s first stand-alone clubhouse within a housing scheme that is tailored to the needs of its residents, the eco-friendly clubhouse, which overlooks a man-made lake, would be managed by DNP Land itself.

Tan said construction work on the 4 1/2-storey clubhouse, located on a 0.8ha plot of land in the project site, would be completed in two years.

Among its main facilities are a 25m-long swimming pool that is half an Olympic-size pool, a badminton hall with three separate courts, two squash courts and a restaurant that could accommodate 300 people.

Tan said there would also be a multipurpose hall, function hall, gymnasium, Jacuzzi, cafetaria, rooftop terrace-cum-barbeque pit, a skybar, convenience store, clinic, hair salon, library, children’s play area, outdoor fitness station, jogging trails and lake garden.

“We have also allocated rooms to conduct tuition lessons so that residents need not travel far to send their children for such classes,” he said.

Architect Chan Mun Inn from Design Collective Architecture Network Sdn Bhd said the clubhouse was designed to have ample natural light from the sun as well as minimal usage of air-conditioning.

He said the clubhouse layout, which included a basement car park, would be submitted to the Green Building Index under Malaysian Institute of Architects to be certified as a green building.

Chan said that his company, which earlier renovated and turned a double storey link house into DNP Land’s Impiana sales gallery, had won the Malaysian Interior Designers’ Institute’s best design award for the building under the Exhibit and Gallery category in October.

Jesselton Hills, sprawled over a 48ha plot of land, would have 900 housing and commercial units comprising bungalows, semi-detached houses and super-linked housing units.
