Riveria Sentral to bank on its connectivity

As land in Kuala Lumpur becomes scarce, more and more developers are shifting towards creating all-in-one lifestyle products. Titijaya Land Bhd is among them that recognise the need for such products and plan to integrate this concept in their future projects.

“It is certainly an appealing concept. Today, people are getting busier, hence more buyers and investors yearn for the conveniences offered by mixed-use developments,” says executive director Charmaine Lim.

Building a township around Xiamen University Malaysia

For Sunsuria Bhd, developing the freehold, 525-acre Sunsuria City in Salak Tinggi has been a journey of faith. The core of the township, which has a gross development value (GDV) of RM10 billion, is the 150-acre Xiamen University Malaysia, China’s first overseas campus. The rest of the township will grow around the university.

Most developers look for catalysts for their existing landbank but Sunsuria did the opposite. It found its catalyst — Xiamen University — first, after former housing and local government minister Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting and former deputy higher education minister Datuk Hou Kok Chung had proposed to the university in 2011 to open a campus in Malaysia, before even getting the land on which to build it.
