Ode to nature

Live, laugh, share and grow in the latest social heart of Kajang.

When it comes to the creation of exquisite homes located in a master plan that aims to foster a wholesome lifestyle, Tropicana Corp Bhd is right on track with its upcoming gated and guarded development, Tropicana Heights.

Since 1992, the company has pioneered resort-themed lifestyles in each of its exceptional developments, alongside a unique DNA that has raised its profile to one of the leading property developers.

Continuing in that vein, a fine balance of urban city convenience and welcoming communal warmth is what makes this development stand out from the rest. At the luscious enclave, sited on 199 acres of prime freehold land, one can expect to find residential, commercial and recreational spaces coming together to establish a wholesome, fulfilling life for its inhabitants.

Ensuring that Tropicana Heights replicates the same success as its predecessors, every little detail is carefully considered in the crafting of a green-inspired community, where nature is appreciated and relationships are cherished. Inviting green spaces are interspersed with scenic walking trails and a 80-feet panoramic boulevard, encouraging family closeness and fostering neighbourly interactions.

Built on what was formerly the Kajang Hill Golf Club, Tropicana first studied the contours of the land and decided to keep the original landform when designing Tropicana Heights. Enveloped in the verdant beauty of pristine valleys and hills, here is where the residential precincts are anchored around a landscaped 16-acre central park.

“Tropicana decided to build part of the central park first before any of the other components. This is a move rarely seen in other projects, but we did so in order to show visitors and prospective buyers the promise of quality we have made coming to fruition. Seeing is believing, and we wanted to create a holistic ambience first, that is a symbiosis between the architecture and the environment,” says Tropicana sales and marketing business development senior general manager Ung Lay Ting.

This tranquil park is complete with a 2.3 km-long walkway which encircles a 750-meter linear lake that forms the breathtaking focal point. It is home to plenty of thoughtful touches such as a wide variety of thematic gardens, children’s playground, manicured meeting spaces, pavilion as well as a floating gazebo and platform. There is also a two-acre recreational hub that provides a sanctuary out-of-home with plenty of activity options: Olympic length swimming pool, tennis and badminton courts and sauna, to name a few.

It’s only befitting that a resort homestead with a gross development value (GDV) of RM2.18bil is transformed from a former golf course, given the company’s first ever flagship development. By reestablishing the natural flora, aquatic life and ecosystem, residents and visitors alike will be able to appreciate the seamlessly spacious pedestrian walkways, all of which are complemented by beautiful landscaping, water features and gorgeous parkland views.

With sumptuous yet attentively- conceived parkview homes, lakeside condominiums, a market square and neighbourhood schools, all conveniences are located within easy reach. Two phases have been launched so far, the first of which is Fairfield Residences and the second being Parkfield Residences.

The former is an enclave of two- or three-storey terraces with built-up ranging from 2,135 sq ft to 3344 sq ft, where layouts are kept functional and flexible, suitable for a wide array of families and lifestyles. A double volume ceiling in the living area creates an airy expanse and grand first impression that can be perceived throughout the classic yet elegant homes.

The latter is a community of two-storey terraces and three-storey linked semi-Ds, with capacious open-plan built-up ranging from 2,203 sq ft to 3,079 sq ft fit for luxurious living. With a dedicated 4.8-acre private community park located within the secure boundaries of this gated neighbourhood, indulging in the simple pleasures of life with loved ones is now a reality.

Connectivity-wise, Tropicana Heights enjoys some of the best accessibility as it is located seven km away from Kajang and the Semenyih town centre, putting it within close proximity to major road networks and transportation hubs. It is surrounded by a host of shopping, dining, entertainment, healthcare and educational amenities.

The upcoming Klang Valley MRT and KTM stations in Bandar Kajang, proposed flyover to Persiaran Bangi and upgrading of the bridge to Bandar Teknologi to four lanes will also benefit the residents of Tropicana Heights. What is more, there is an estimated RM60mil upcoming flyover that will allow access directly to Persiaran Bangi, with the costs shared by a few developers in the area.

Tropicana Heights is a self-sustained master plan that abounds with featured facilities and amenities for everyone to immerse themselves in conversations, activities and togetherness. - BY CAITLYN NG LI YUIN (StarProperty)
