NESTLED in Sungai Long within
the south of Cheras is a residential
project unlike any other called
Twin Palms Sungai Long.
Lush, green-lined walkways and
mature landscaping come together
seamlessly with a host of lifestyle
amenities and round-the-clock
security, creating a haven for
residents in any one of the nine
residential phases.
In line with the aim of fostering
a holistic living environment for
residents, those living in Twin
Palms Sungai Long are able to
enjoy the residents-only clubhouse,
take a jog along the Linear Park, or
simply take the children to a
playground while enjoying the
sights and sounds of the green
outdoors.
Residents are also encouraged to
bond and interact with others in
the community through the many
social events organised by the
Property Management Team. This
includes Twin Palms Family Day,
Scavenger Hunts, Festivities Get
Together and more.
Twin Palms Sungai Long was
envisioned with a resort home
concept in mind and, today, has
matured into a development where
community members can work,
play and live their dream.

Secure and connected


Twin Palms Sungai Long is easily
accessible via the SILK Highway,
Cheras-Kajang Highway, Grand
Saga Highway and Lekas Highway.
The gated and guarded
community consists of nine
residential phases, including
superlink, semi-detached and
bungalow homes.
These total to 573 landed homes
built on freehold land, with the
first phase completed in September
2009, after which residents
immediately started moving in.
Since then, 95% of the completed
units have been occupied or are
undergoing renovation.
Residents come home to a cosy
enclave that promises peace of
mind, thanks to 24-hour security
and perimeter CCTV surveillance
of the private neighbourhood.

ECOHILL Walk is poised to become
the first concept-driven integrated
commercial development in
Semenyih, introducing vibrant,
seamless connection between
retail, commercial and residential
spaces in the fast-growing Setia
EcoHill township. Upon completion
in 2020, EcoHill Walk will be an
iconic project in Semenyih.
The 17.5-acre (7.1ha)
development with a gross domestic
value (GDV) of RM900mil
comprises 890 serviced apartment
units, 80 units of three- and fourstorey commercial retail shops, a
neighbourhood mall and a
premium entertainment
centrepiece attraction that brings
all elements together in a symbiotic
coexistence.
Koh Sooi Meng, general manager
of Setia EcoHill Sdn Bhd, explains
the unique concept that inspires
S P Setias latest commercial
development: EcoHill Walk takes
its architectural inspiration from
the study of the Grand Canyon,
where the massive, steep canyon
walls flanking each other create a
valley that is vibrant and alive,
bursting with activity and
movement in its hollow.
In similar fashion, EcoHill Walk
is designed to simulate a structural
canyon where activity is rife in its
central walkway, lined by the
commercial retail shops facing
each other.
The project team ventured
overseas to study and derive
inspiration from other reputable
concept-driven projects, including
Galaxy Soho @ Beijing, China.

Commercial advantage
EcoHill Walk is the perfect place
to embark on your business
venture, be it an office, retail or
food and beverage (F&B) outlet.
Eighty units of three- and fourstorey commercial retail shop lots
to be launched this month are
available, each with a built-up area
from approximately 4,500sq ft
(418.1sq m) and lot size from
8,400mm x 17,000mm.
The generous 15ft (4.6m) to 22ft
(6.7m) high ceiling layout in the
ground floor allows owners to
expand their business
opportunities as they see fit. Each
unit is also fitted with an exhaust
shaft, which makes every unit
ready for F&B businesses.
A 10ft (3m) wide retail corridor
outside each unit provides space
for product promotions or al fresco
dining as well as easy connectivity.
There is also a particularly
exciting prospect for units facing
the beautiful view of the manmade
stream, water sculptures and lush,
landscaped pedestrian walkway.
The pedestrian walkway offers
an inviting space for businesses to
engage the community. With its
seamless connectivity, the walkway
encourages movement in a
refreshing and welcoming
ambience, which is also safe as it is
void of vehicles.
Additionally, link bridges extend
the convenience of reach between
the serviced apartments,
neighbourhood mall and
commercial retail shops, providing
a secure environment for all.
Dedicated shared lifts promise
convenience for owners and
customers, as do escalators that
ease movement while encouraging
visitors to further explore
businesses within the
development.
The maintenance service lifts in
selected blocks, on the other hand,
are particularly for loading and
unloading purposes.
With more than 2,000 parking
bays, each commercial unit will
have a minimum of three car park
bays for convenience.

development
unlike any

Semenyih.

Seamless, vibrant integration


These stratified shop lots are
expected to be completed by the
end of 2020 and are each available
from RM2.474mil onwards.
The developer has introduced
well-thought out sales packages to
encourage investors to start
investing in this signature
development.
Approximately 150 prospective
customers attended the EcoHill
Walk launch preview on Nov 6,
where they were able to hear from
the master and landscape
architects of the project as well as
view a sales package presentation.
This event marked the official
opening of EcoHill Walk to the
public interested parties can now
visit the Setia EcoHill Welcome
Centre for enquiry and booking
purposes.

Supporting community
growth
Business owners will enjoy the
central location of the development
within Setia EcoHill, drawing upon
the fast-growing population of the
township and its neighbouring
communities.
With its unique and iconic
landmark position, it has the
potential to become a regional
lifestyle hub that not only benefits
those living in Semenyih, but
people in Kajang, Bangi, Cheras,
Seri Kembangan, Nilai and
Seremban.
The township opened in January
2013 with its maiden project
Arroyo Garden, which featured 224
bungalow units.
A total of 1,300 houses have been
handed over as at the end of last
year, with another 3,000 units

under construction and targeted


for delivery between next year and
2018.
The demand for houses in this
area is still very high despite
overall market slowdown due to
Setia EcoHills appealing green
features, good product mix that
meets market demand, welldesigned township masterplan and
reasonable pricing, says Koh.
An estimated 10,000 new
residential units will be delivered
in Semenyih within the next four
years to serve the estimated
population increment of 40,000 to
50,000.
By 2020, it is projected that
300,000 of the population would be
within a 15-minute driving radius
of EcoHill Walk. This indicates the
great potential of the development,
especially considering its unique
offering and easy accessibility.
In tandem with this, S P Setia has
also enhanced other lifestyle
amenities in building a sustainable
township with admirable
infrastructure within Setia EcoHill.
Primary of these is the EcoHill
Walk Mall, poised as the next
entertainment hub with four
storeys of shops linked seamlessly
to the other components of EcoHill
Walk.
The 260,000sq ft (24,154.8sq m)
neighbourhood mall complements
the retail outfit of this commercial
development, where business
concepts in F&B, retail, wellness
and fitness, services and healthcare
will come to life.
The centrepiece of EcoHill Walk,
situated directly opposite the mall,
is called The Gem @ EcoHill Walk.
With its unique diamond faade,
this 23,000sq ft (2136.8sq m)
building is set to become a

premium entertainment
centrepiece that will be the focal
point of the project.
The Gem is anticipated to attract
visitors to EcoHill Walk here, they
can enjoy a fantastic view of the
surrounding waterscapes while
indulging in entertainment and
fine dining options.

Accessibility adds viability


The Lekas EcoHill Link a
dedicated highway interchange to
the Lekas Highway was opened
to the public in August last year to
enhance connectivity to and from
the township.
On the education front, Tenby
International School started
operation in September while
R.E.A.L Kids is expected to open its
doors in 2018.
Also anticipated that year is Club
360, which is set to be one of the
largest community clubhouses
within the Klang Valley.
Next year, another commercial
development called EcoHill Taipan
will make its debut, featuring 56
units of three- and four-storey shop
office lots.
Easy access to EcoHill Walk
makes the development a viable
investment option that will enjoy
patronage from within Setia
EcoHill and the mature
neighbouring townships within
KL South, says Koh.
The project is situated between
the Lekas Highway and Jalan
Semenyih, approximately 2km
from Semenyih town and 4km
from Broga Hill and The University
of Nottingham Malaysia Campus.
The newly opened Lekas EcoHill
Link strategically connects the
township to the Kajang-Seremban

(Lekas) Highway, making it


accessible to the Kajang Dispersal
Link Expressway (SILK), South
Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE),
Cheras-Kajang Highway
(Grandsaga) and North-South
Expressway (PLUS).
The upcoming East Klang
Valley Expressway (EKVE),
which is anticipated to be
completed by 2019, will further
enhance the connectivity of Setia
EcoHill by reducing the distance to
Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC)
and major towns such as Ampang.
Setia EcoHill is approximately
10km from Kajang and Bangi,
20km from Cheras and Putrajaya,
30km from Seremban, 35km from
Kuala Lumpur and 40km from
KLIA.
Koh says that this increased
connectivity has cast a limelight on
the suburbs, which leaves a
positive impact on Setia EcoHill.
Most of our homebuyers
come from Cheras, Sungai Long,
Ampang, Kajang, Seri Kembangan,
Bangi and Puchong, which
shows that a large portion
of the population is starting to
move away from the city to
embrace a serene lifestyle in
developing suburban areas such as
Semenyih.
In line with this, more than 10%
of the total development of this
1,683-acre (681.1ha) land is
reserved as greenery and public
parks for residents to enjoy, while
15% of land allotment goes
towards building commercial and
office lots to create working
opportunities and support
population spending, says Koh.

Recipe
for success
By THERESA BELLE

THE trend of moving away from


the city and into the suburbs
breathes new life into previously
less developed areas.
In South East Kuala Lumpur,
located less than an hours drive
from the city centre, districts such
as Kajang, Semenyih and Bangi
are seeing increased attention
from developers and property
seekers.
Property Focus: South East KL
weighs the factors contributing to
the facelift of Kajang, Semenyih,
Bangi and surrounding
townships.

Attractive to developers
The growing presence of major
property developers plays a key
role in the transformation of
South East KL districts from
sleepy suburbs to sustainable
living hubs.
S P Setia, Tropicana
Corporation, IOI Corporation,
UEM Sunrise, Naza TTDI Group,
Sime Darby Property, Gamuda
Land, Ireka Corporation and Lum
Chang Group are among the
developers that build this driving
force.
When asked what makes this
area attractive to developers,
Setia EcoHills general manager
Koh Sooi Meng explains that it is
a simple matter of land

availability and housing demand.


Not only are there ample land
banks in these areas, there are
actually no more big chunks of
land in the city suitable for
township development. At least
1,000 acres (404.7ha) are needed
for a township, which can hardly
be found within Kuala Lumpur or
surrounding developed areas, he
says.
Improved infrastructure and
highway connectivity means that
these areas are opened up to city
dwellers, allowing them to find all
necessary living amenities close to
the city centre and the Klang
Valley, where most business
activities are centred.
Amenities in and around the
area such as malls, educational
institutions and natural
recreational attractions make
Kajang/Semenyih townships selfcontained, says Anwar Syahrin
Abdul Ajib, managing director and
chief executive officer of UEM
Sunrise Berhad.
These residential projects will
support the spillover from mass
housing developments in southern
Klang Valley, which includes
Cheras, Ampang, Seri Kembangan,
Kajang and Puchong mature
areas fast reaching full capacity.
Potential buyers come from
congested areas seeking betterplanned townships and this creates
a great market for developers in
less known suburbs.

We believe that rapid


population growth in the area is
spurring the growth of Semenyih,
with the current Ulu Langat district
population representing about
21.2% of Selangors total
population.
Semenyih alone has a
population of 68,000 and large
retail shops have opened up,
adding to the areas attractiveness
and boosting further growth, says
Anwar.
He adds that the recurring pull
for developers choosing to build
here is the availability of land for
development at competitive and
attractive prices.
This provides opportunities for
developers to plan and develop
new comprehensive and integrated
townships that will cater to the
growing demand for affordable
and mass housing. This demand
follows the recent spike in prices
for landed properties in selected
locations within the Klang Valley,
he explains.

All in the concept


With property development
activities growing in the suburbs,
future property buyers can rest
assured that they will be privy to a
variety of options in choosing a
house, whether for dwelling or
investment.
Developers do not simply sell
homes, they sell concepts. The big

players have latched on to the


ideals of modern homebuyers and,
to many in these markets, selfcontained townships offer the most
bang for their buck.
The younger generation may
not have big funds to acquire
property in major towns or cities.
Instead, developing areas such as
Semenyih provide better options
within their budget.
There is also the home upgrader
who currently lives in an
apartment and would like to move
to a landed property to expand his
family, says Koh.
Setia EcoHill, for example,
attempts to provide the perfect
balance between work and natural
leisure with 10% of the total
development reserved for green
pockets and recreational parks to
encourage greener community
living.

Personal haven
Buying early into new, promising
townships is a common trend
among new families, but the
appeal is not limited to any
particular demographic in fact,
Koh explains that even
businessmen or retirees have
displayed increasing interest in
such residential developments as
they enjoy the natural, serene
environment where they can get
away from the hustle and bustle of
city life while still having access to

good infrastructure.
Anwar adds, A township
development acts as an iconic
symbol for the company, as it is
proof that the developer is diligent
in its commitment to not just
provide property, but build
communities.
Integrated developments are
preferred as prospective buyers
seek affordable quality
developments in view of the
shrinking purchasing power, but at
the same time, facilities and
infrastructure built within the
township could boost prices given
the convenience provided.
Thanks to the growth of these
concept-driven township
residential projects, potential
owner-occupiers are able to choose
their haven in Kajang, Semenyih,
Bangi or the surrounding areas.
If you are wondering how to
begin making this decision,
remember that it all starts with
research into the area of choice.
Do some homework study the
master plan and potential
development of amenities that
could improve the future value of
the property such as public
transportation upgrades, schools,
security and commercial
developments.
Also, check the developers
portfolio for successful similar
projects handled by them
empirical evidence is very telling,
advises Koh.
