Visionary builders of tomorrow

Defining excitement – BBCC is the lifestyle hub of vibrant districts.

Eco World is a trusted brand among property buyers for good reason. It pays attention to the finer details of property development that is expected by discerning buyers.

Property buyers and investors alike are attracted to the superior design concepts featured by Eco World Development Group Bhd (EcoWorld) meeting the aspirations and needs for a superior lifestyle.

The company places importance especially when it comes to the entrance statement of townships, ensuring that it is grand, fully gated, and secured with access card system, security guards, and video surveillance.

EcoWorld’s townships make grand statements that leave an impression on its residents and visitors.

At EcoWorld, components that may be usually overlooked, such as roundabouts, are turned into beautifully landscaped masterpieces, reflecting the unique theme of their respective townships.

These design additions also stand as a welcome statement to residents, as well as visitors, before dispersing into a particular precinct. Gazebos are transformed into stately ornaments providing shaded venues for residents to meet and foster strong community spirit, apart from linking walkways to parks, lakes as well as waterways.

Exclusive clubhouses with extensive facilities are also a familiar feature within the developments showcased by EcoWorld, with some projects offering more than a clubhouse, where each precinct of a township may have its very own, ensuring exclusivity. Linear parks are also found across the entire expanse of EcoWorld townships, while the back lanes of landed homes are turned into beautiful gardens, providing extra greenery.

Conservation of nature has always been an important feature in EcoWorld developments across the board. An example of such execution is Eco Sanctuary, EcoWorld’s 308.72-acre luxury township developed in Canal City, Shah Alam.

The property group had made conscious efforts in conserving surrounding environment areas during the township’s planning stages, by engaging the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) to conduct an inventory survey on the development site, resulting in 52 species of trees and a total of 1,067 trees successfully being replanted.

The “eco” emphasis of this project also lies in the green features implemented which include constructing homes in a north- south orientation, using large windows for cross-ventilation in homes, as well as using fittings such as solar water heaters, LED streetlights, rainwater harvesting tanks, as well as designating recycling compartments.

EcoWorld has approximately 7,443.9 acres of land bank with a total gross development value (GDV) of RM81bil. Currently, the developer is focused on areas such as the Klang Valley, Iskandar Malaysia as well as Penang. As of now, the developer has a total of 17 projects comprising affordable, upgrader, as well as luxury homes, integrated high-rise developments, as well as green business parks.

EcoWorld is creating opportunities for the property buyers of today by providing different options to suit diverse appetites. For example, Eco Sky condominiums, being developed off Jalan Ipoh in Kuala Lumpur, is targeted at urbanites looking for wholesome city living, where all the conveniences of a modern lifestyle are available, right at one’s doorstep.

Over in Iskandar Malaysia, the developer is popular for its EcoBusiness Park series. As for larger upgrader markets, the developer is known for its townships that are dubbed Eco Majestic and Eco Sanctuary, located at Semenyih and Shah Alam respectively.

EcoWorld is currently focusing on a handful of key developments, which include Mellowood in Eco Majestic that features luxurious park homes inspired by black and white houses of the straits era and The Parque Residences in EcoSanctuary – launched last month and selling from RM400,000. The Parque Residences offers resort-style living amidst a 12-acre reserved green space as well as a sanctuary styled clubhouse, holding approximately 12,000 sq ft of facilities exclusively for residents.

The developer plans to launch an exciting Kuala Lumpur project in the first half of 2016. This project is dubbed Bukit Bintang city centre (BBcc), a lifestyle hub of vibrant districts consisting of a retail mall, hotels, offices, parks and gardens as well as transit hub. The development will pose as the centre for art, culture, business, and leisure.

EcoWorld places its buyers at top priority, placing strong emphasis on security, as well as good connectivity, by improving the accessibility and infrastructure to main roads and highways that lead to their developments, aside from choosing either matured or growing neighbourhoods, complete with amenities such as schools, shops as well as hypermarkets.

Getting to an EcoWorld project site is easy, as all its developments are located strategically, with easy accessibility to connecting routes. An integration effort by EcoWorld, with regards to connectivity, is the Eco Majestic Red carpet Bridge constructed at Eco Majestic, which opened in March this year, not only makes accessibility into the township a breeze, but also to serve as a warm welcoming statement to residents, as well as visitors.

This bridge is part of a new link road from the Semenyih Toll (Exit 2101) that will shorten travelling time substantially for those coming to Eco Majestic, avoiding much of the heavy traffic on Jalan Semenyih.

The developer has also spent approximately RM10mil to date for the upgrading of the Bandar Tasik Kesuma junction leading into the township’s east gate Entrance.

The group is also working towards the opening of a dedicated LEKAS-Eco Majestic Interchange, expected for completion in the second quarter of 2016. This dedicated interchange is approximately five kilometers from the current Semenyih Toll (Exit 2012A) and will lead directly into the township’s commercial precinct, reducing the travel time from Eco Majestic to Kuala Lumpur to just 30 minutes.

EcoWorld has also come up with four financing plans under the EcoWorld Easy Premium Home ownership programme. The first plan is the ‘Affordable plan’, where buyers are given the chance to pay down payments using credit card, stretched across a 36-month interest-free instalment period.

Next is the ‘Easy plan’, where buyers are given an option to pay a lower monthly repayment via stretching the repayment period to five years. The third option for purchasers is the ‘Upgradable plan’, where a short-term secured loan is designed to bridge temporary cash short fall when upgrading to an EcoWorld home product. Finally, the developer offers the ‘Flexible plan’, a flexi- loan that integrates a home loan account with a savings or current account. - BY VIKNESH ASHLEY (StarProperty)
