East Ledang homes see good sales

East Ledang's twin villa show unit

IN less than a month, UEM Land Sdn Bhd’s (UEM) latest property development, East Ledang at Nusajaya, Johor has sold almost half (48%) of its first phase that was launched late February.

“Fifty percent of our buyers are locals, mostly from Johor and are high income professionals while the other 50% are foreigners, mostly from Singapore,” said Wan Abdullah Wan Ibrahim, managing director of UEM Land.

The RM1.2 billion development takes up 275 freehold acres in Nusajaya and will be developed in seven phases comprising a total of 861 homes. The first phase offers a total of 139 units comprising 52 twin villas and 87 link duplexes.

The twin villas have built-up areas ranging between 3,700 sq ft and 4,400 sq ft while the link duplexes have builtups of between 2,600 sq ft and 3,000 sq ft. The homes are priced at RM870,000 and above and RM458,000 and above respectively.

“Work has already begun at Phase 1, which we are confident of delivering within 18 months. The entire East Ledang would take us between five to seven years to complete,” said Wan Abdullah, adding that Phase 2, comprising semidees and bungalows, is targeted for launch in August.

According to him, the project has an “East meets West” concept, blending tropical gardens and colourful flora from the East with security and ICT technology. The gated development comes with 24-hour CCTV surveillance, guarded and access card entrances, patrolled perimeters, as well as home security systems that come with panic buttons linked to the Central Monitoring System.

Another feature of the project is its 31 themed gardens including a 20-acre forest, wetland gardens, lake gardens and a large lake. “The Central Garden in Phase 1, with its 100-year-old multi-hued Frangipani trees whose whorled trunks resemble sculptures, is one not to be missed,” said Wan Abdullah.

Residents of East Ledang will receive membership for the clubhouse, “The Ledang”. Located at the estate’s entrance, the clubhouse features dining, recreational and spa facilities with a business centre, convenience shopping and a range of concierge-style services. Members may also enjoy panoramic views of East Ledang from “The Tower” at the clubhouse.

Located in south Johor, East Ledang is part of Nusajaya, a 24,000-acre regional city touted to be the largest fullyintegrated urban development in South-East Asia. Nusajaya is located within the Iskandar Development Region, which is connected to Singapore via modern expressways, 20 minutes away from Johor Baru and about three hours car drive to Kuala Lumpur.

Nusa Idaman, UEM Land's other project also within Nusajaya, will be completely launched this year. To date, it has launched six out of eight phases and handed over the first three phases. The remaining two phases will be launched within 2008, said Wan Abdullah. The RM417- million project is expected to house over 2,000 units upon completion.

UEM Land is the master developer of Nusajaya, which is expected to house 500,000 residents by 2025.
