Taking multi-generational, communal living to a whole new level
There are those who define a development from the structure it represents. Then there are those who understand that housing is not about the building, but building for the people. This is the driving force behind Tuai Residence, which revolves around a community celebrating togetherness, and reaping happiness in every season, just as the name suggests.
Beginning with the young greens, all the way to the golden matured plants, all are cared for on the same plot of land, much like how it is at Tuai. Here, independence and diversity are celebrated with MAGIC (a term coined by American gerontologist, Dr Bill Thomas), an acronym for Multi-Ability, multi-Generational, Inclusive Community.
The young and old alike can live in an environment that is equally accessible, usable and most importantly, safe for all. In other words, physical differences and abilities have little bearing in Tuai. Everyone has a claim.
Safety for all ages
A low-density development, Tuai Residence registers at only 50 units per acre. These multi-generational condominiums are specially designed for the comfort of three generations. The condominium hosts a total of 330 units, and they come with built-ups ranging from 1,109 sq ft to 1,927 sq ft, three to five bedrooms, and two to four bathrooms.
Most striking is the liberal application of universal design, not only within the homes, but encompassing the entire development. Bathrooms and kitchens are purposefully built with more space to accommodate the radius of a turning wheelchair. Slight ramps have also been integrated into the units, bedrooms and bathrooms. Then there are the large-gang switches at wheelchair height.
This wheelchair-friendly environment offers the convenience that inspires a healthier and more independent lifestyle in your golden years. Slip-resistant tiles are further added to ensure the safety of the elderly. As an added precaution, fire sprinklers are incorporated as a foresight towards any fire hazard. Speaking of fire, there is also a protected fire refuge area allocated on every floor for wheelchair users and seniors.
In consideration to the occupant’s health, low volatile organic compound paint is used for the interior walls. Moreover, every unit is north-south oriented to minimise heat generation. Additionally, Tuai Residence thoughtfully employs the point-block design so that residents in any unit are not more than three units away from the nearest lift.
No one gets left behind
Everyone knows each other at Tuai Residence. The facilities and design of the development come together as a whole, cultivating a friendly community. There is ample opportunity to mingle and interact. Get productive at the communal herb garden. Meet and chat at the resident lounge area or host other creative activities at the multi-function room.
If that is not enough, then head over the traffic-free sheltered link bridge connecting Tuai Residence to other points of interest. Walk over it to attend classes, replenish groceries, or perhaps accomplish a task as simple as fetching a cup of coffee. Your trip is bound to be seamless, leisurely and safe. With regards to safety, there are times when we may live alone but require help.
The Care Office located on-site is complete with nurses and caregivers trained in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator. You can also perform your routine checkups here. This unique feature is enhanced by the wealth of hospitals nearby, such as the KPJ Klang Specialist Hospital, Columbia Asia Hospital, Sentosa Specialist Hospital and the Avisena Specialist Hospital Shah Alam. At Tuai Residence, you will never face your twilight years alone.
All within reach
Located next to the township of Eco Ardence, Tuai Residence presides on a prime spot approximately 30 minutes from the KL City Centre. The surrounding area is replete with shopping and leisure elements, such as the nearby Setia City Mall, Tesco Setia Alam, Ardence Labs, Sunsuria Forum and the night market. Education for the children is made accessible through the primary, secondary, international and vernacular schools within easy reach. With regards to connectivity, the development is further connected to the New Klang Valley Expressway, Shapadu Highway and the Guthrie Corridor.
