Saujana Rawang offers an out-of-the-city abode

Well spread out: The Botania units comprise Phase 11 of Saujana Rawang township, and will be located nearby the plots allocated for linked shoplots.

For aspiring homeowners who wish to avoid the saturated city market, the Saujana Rawang Township, developed by Glomac, may offer a viable alternative.

The project will be developed under Phase 11 of the township, with intermediate units measuring 22’ x 70’.

Assistant general manager Gary Goh said there would be a total of 160 units built under this phase, although it would be broken up into further sub-phases.

Pleased: Goh (left) and Ezwan at the launch of Phase 11B of the Botania units at the new Saujana Rawang township.

“Right now, we are already fully booked for Phase 11A, which comprises the first 30 units of Botania homes. Phase 11B which was recently launched will have another 27 homes,” said Goh.

He added that the sub-phases 11C and 11D, which comprised 52 units each, could possibly be launched together.

“It will be 160 units in total, and we are expecting this phase to be completed two years from now, by the end of 2013,” Goh said.

The two-storey units are built in modern contemporary style, with four bedrooms, a utility room and three bathrooms.

“The intermediate units are priced at RM419,882, while corner units will of course cost more. This makes Botania an ideal solution for people looking to buy property with a budget of RM500,000.

“They will be able to afford landed property even though it is some distance away from the city,” said sales and marketing manager Ezwan Zainal.

Ezwan noted that there were eight more development phases left for Saujana Rawang as the township had more commercial and residential areas to develop, including medium-to-high priced apartments as well as two lakes which allowed for recreational activities.

“We are also building another access road into the township as the current one can get too congested at times. So the new road we are building will allow residents and visitors to enter Saujana Rawang without traffic problems,” said Ezwan.

It was estimated by Ezwan and Goh that the future development phases would take another five years for completion.

“Our first buyers were primarily bumiputras but we are also seeing many Chinese buyers now showing interest in this township as well,” Ezwan noted.

He explained that recent developments in the area, such as the opening of an Aeon Jusco shopping centre in Rawang had contributed to the influx of buyers into Saujana Rawang, and that the township’s own phased development would further increase the already encouraging take-up rate.

All set for a lasting impact

The Belleview Group is undertaking the development of RM1.724bil worth of property this year for Penang island and Kedah.

Its managing director Datuk Sonny Ho said some RM360mil worth of property projects including All Seasons Park’s final phase, Moulmein Rise and W Residence were planned for the island.

“The remaining RM1.364bil worth of property included the third and fourth phases of the Kulim-Techno City (KTC) project, Amansuri Residences, Aman Central and Star Centro in Kedah.

“Kicking off the launch for Penang island in April is the RM200mil Moulmein Rise project in Pulau Tikus, Penang, a 27-storey iconic structure comprising 84 life-style suites and a two-level podium of retail shoplots, with views of the sea-fronting Gurney Drive,” he said.

Designed architecturally to be a modern building, it would include a host of desirable amenities with five-star features and state-of-art security system, he added.

In May, Belleview will launch the RM100mil Autumn Tower comprising 220 condominium units for the All Seasons Park project in Bandar Baru Air Itam (popularly known as Farlim), Penang.

The built-up area for the units ranges between 850sq ft and 1,323sq ft. The project also features a full range of modern recreational facilities.

Ho said the sales of the Summer, Spring and Winter Towers had been a roaring success, with only a handful of units available.

“The third project launching on the island in June is the RM60mil W Residence on Jalan Utama.

“W Residence comprises eight freehold bungalows with a gated community that provides a safe and secure environment, monitored by closed circuit television cameras and protected by a two-tiered security electronic card system,” he said.

For Kedah, Belleview kicked off with the launch of the RM180mil Amansuri Residences in Alor Setar on Tuesday.

The Amansuri Residences, Ho said, comprised 277 condominiums with built-up areas of 1,248sq ft onwards.

“Equipped with an advanced three-tiered security system, the project has extensive water features, landscaped greenery and a grand guest drop-off atrium,” he said.

Belleview will then launch the RM34mil third and fourth phases of the KTC project at the Kulim Hi-Tech Park in the second half of this year.

Ho said both phases comprised 1 1/2 storey and double storey terraced houses, single-storey and 1 1/2 storey semi-detached houses, and single storey bungalows.

“The KTC project is about 20 minutes away from the Penang Bridge, and is a self-contained township with schools, hospitals, a hypermarket, a recreational park, a golf course and multi-national factories nearby,” he said.

In June, Belleview will launch the RM150mil Star Centro in Alor Setar, a multi-functional commercial centre with 32 units of three-level shop offices and a leading hypermarket as the anchor tenant.

The project is located at the intersection of Jalan Tambang and Jalan Gangsa near the edge of the city on the west side which is accessible from all directions.

Ho said the project would offer a vibrant retail mix of restaurants, lifestyle cafes, banks, telecommunication centres, pharmacy, and personal care outlets.

Belleview Group recently started the construction of the RM1bil Aman Central, the largest shopping mall in Kedah.

The project, located along the busy Lebuhraya Darulaman, will have six floors of retail outlets, providing food and beverage services, entertainment, fitness centre, and bowling alley. All the projects, he added, had received overwhelming response and enquiries.

Meanwhile, Henry Butcher Malaysia (Penang) director Dr Teoh Poh Huat said the sentiments in the property market would remain cautiously optimistic.

“However, there are still a strong propensity to buy in preferred locations and an interest in well conceptualised schemes with good quality finishes and security.

“Presently, foreigners comprise less than 8% of the property buyers in Penang. The foreign segment is expected to grow in tandem with Penang’s popularity as a second home paradise,” he said.
