What would make a person gravitate towards a particular place? Would it be the numerous amenities in the surrounding area, satisfying all needs and wants? How about the environment, either surrounded by upbeat vibrancy or verdant serenity? Whatever the reason, discerning homebuyers will be able to find all that and more under one convenient address: Gravit8.

This up-and-coming development looks poised to change the landscape of Klang South, ushering in a new phase of a dynamic and modern era. Here is where living, leisure, work and entertainment can be found, all in one spot. With a simple play on the word “gravitate”, the number “8″ was also included in the name as an allusion to the eight planned high-rise towers which will surround a landscaped lake.

“We believe that once the entire development is complete, Klang folks and the surrounding communities will be drawn towards Gravit8. The contemporary maritime-themed concepts injected into this project will serve as a natural pulling force. Exciting the senses of the visitors, allowing them to enjoy the facilities and to patronise the retailers/shops available, is what we aim to achieve,” enthuses Mitraland Group Sdn Bhd CEO Chuah Theong Yee.

With a total gross development value (GDV) of approximately RM1.3bil, Gravit8 is a mixed development comprising service apartments, SoHos, hotel, retail outlets, shopping mall, corporate offices as well as a proposed medical centre next door to the development, allowing it to be completely self-sustaining. By transcending the typical developments in the surrounding vicinity, residents and visitors will be spoilt for choice by the number of activities and areas in which they can spend their quality time.

Indeed, Mitraland has engaged only the best experts in landscaping and designing, in order to create a lush sanctuary that blends both earthy and water elements together. In the heart of Gravit8 is the splendid eight- acre lake, which will not only be a visually impactful icon, but also the perfect social gathering point for people from all walks of life. A massive aquarium will be placed in the two-storey Pier 8 retail mall, serving as the main attraction.

The two-storey retail mall boasts clean contemporary designs and will house the first-of-its-kind seafood and local delicacies haven in keeping with the maritime theme.

Mother Nature is welcomed into the development with the addition of a three- acre green deck on the podium of the service apartments. This is where the full clubhouse facilities are housed, where residents will be able to enjoy the swimming pool, multifunction hall, gymnasium and mini- library, to name a few. In the mall itself, there will be an al fresco food haven that brings together all the best seafood offerings and local delicacies.

The first phase of the development saw 22 units of three- to five-storey shops launched, while Phase 2A consists of the residential aspect: two 32-storey towers housing the service apartment units. Keeping in accordance to the prevalently maritime theme, the towers are named “Nordica” and “Adria”, and have distinct nautical touches woven into the design of the towers. The units come in built-up ranging from 600 sq ft to 1000 sq ft, and will have various layouts to suit the needs of each owner.

These lofty plans to bring a lifestyle project of such a large-scale to the Klang South community will be the talk of the town, especially since Mitraland has priced the units below RM500,000, allowing for residents to enjoy in the lap of luxury, but at an affordable rate.

“We decided to permeate Klang South as we truly believe this is a new growth area, like how we had envisioned Cheras South or Balakong to be when we were developing C180. With Gravit8 making its presence felt, we aim to breath new life into Klang South and thus make it the new epicentre – a place that will fulfil the needs of the community,” says Chuah.

With a strategic location in Kota Bayuemas, this 15-acre freehold development is merely sited one km away from the proposed Johan Setia LRT station, in addition to being next to the Shah Alam Expressway (Kesas). The main advantage though, is the direct connection to major highways that makes travelling to any other parts of Klang Valley effortless. Residents and visitors alike will be able to reach other established areas such as Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam, Petaling Jaya and the Kuala Lumpur city centre with ease.

The vibrant concept of Gravit8 is one of its drawing factors, enticing people from all ages and walks of life to come and enjoy the cohesive blend of facilities and amenities.

Gravit8 is proportionately balanced to cater for not only the young working adults who are looking to invest in their first property, but for business-minded investors as well. With a cohesive mix of multiple sections that have a unique maritime theme, it will not only create a calming effect, but can also serve as a great educational subject – as seen by the life-size aquarium at Pier 8.

The best of both worlds – urban facilities set in a naturally lush surrounding – gives residents the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds! - BY CAITLYN NG LI YUIN (StarProperty)
