Residential project in Batu Maung to feature green elements

THOSE looking for a green haven away from the hustle and bustle of city life should consider Sunway Cassia in Batu Maung.

Developed by Sunway Berhad, the sprawling, freehold residential project spans 9.36ha (23.13 acres) and is strategically located near the second Penang bridge and the Penang International Airport.

According to the company’s property development division general manager Tan Hun Beng, they will be opening up Phase 2 of the project for registration during the upcoming Star Property Fair 2012.

To be launched in the fourth quarter of this year, it comprises 59 units of three- storey terrace homes with gross built-up areas of 281.3sq metres (3,028sq ft) and 310sq metres (3,341sq ft), and priced at RM1mil onwards.

It is easily accessible via Jalan Permatang Damar Laut, which connects with Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway and the Penang Bridge.

The project’s main feature would be its green elements.

“There will be a generous, 0.8ha (2 acres) natural park, along with smaller pocket parks and thematic gardens throughout the development – one of them being the Spice Garden which imbues the place with wonderful aromas.

“With the scarcity of land on Penang island today, it is rare to have such a big plot of land allocated for leisure.

“In addition, units will also have green building features like rainwater harvesting and solar hot water systems,” Tan said when met at his office recently.

Among the units’ other features are modern designs aesthetics, practical layouts, wide windows to aide natural ventilation, spa-cious family areas, separate wet and dry kitchens, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathrooms.

The company will also be showcasing its Sunway Wellesley project in Bukit Mertajam on the mainland.

Spread over 24.2ha (60 acres), it is a mixed development of landed and high-rise residences with commercial shop offices.

Phase 1, to be launched this month, comprises 31 units of three-storey shop offices, priced at RM1.2mil, and it is available for booking during the fair.

According to Tan, the project fronts the main thoroughfare of Jalan Muthu Palaniap-pan, and is a stone’s throw away from the old, Bukit Mertajam township, with well-established retail, F&B outlets and banks all in close proximity.

The Penang Bridge, Butterworth-Kulim Expressway, Summit Hotel, Sunway Carnival Mall, AEON Jaya Jusco, Tesco Bukit Mer-tajam, specialist hospitals and national and private schools, are all within a 10km radius.

Tan pointed out that the shop offices would be built around a covered central atrium, giving each unit dual frontage. The atrium will also play host to all kinds of events.

“We anticipate that it’ll become the new lifestyle hub that spices up the area with a new ‘happening’ ambience. The rejuve- nating effects will inject life into the old Bukit Mertajam area,” he added.

The first phase is expected for comple- tion in 2014. The company also expects to roll out Phase 2 either at the end of this year or beginning of next year.

During the fair, they will be offering rebates of up to 10% on selected projects.

Touted as Malaysia’s premier showcase for stylish living, the four-day extrava- ganza will be held at Gurney Plaza and the adjoining G Hotel from July 12 to July 15.

Organised by The Star for the 10th year, the fair will be open to the public from 10am to 10pm daily. Admission is free.
