KotaSAS transforming an old plantation into an integrated and comprehensive enclave
Turning the former Ladang Kurnia Setia Bukit Goh in Kuantan Pahang into their vision of a modern Kuantan, Kota Sultan Ahmad Shah Sdn Bhd (KotaSAS) is well on its way to turning over 2,000 acres into an integrated and comprehensive township.
A wholly owned subsidiary of Tanah Makmur Bhd (TMB) – with a principal focus on the plantation industry, is now turning its gaze towards agribusiness – the KotaSAS township’s gross development value is estimated to be RM4bil over 15 years.
KotaSAS aims to provide about 8,000 residential units to approximately 40,000 residents including multiple residential phases offering quality mixed units of linked, duplex, semi-detached and bungalows all ranging from one to two-and-a-half-storey buildings extolling comfortable living to its residents.
“With 2,165 acres of KotaSAS land bank, we aspire to provide the best quality of residential and commercial properties to the vision of modernising Kuantan by setting this township as the new administrative capital for Pahang.
“The epitome of a self-sustained township, KotaSAS aims to enhance, revitalise, and elevate the community of Kuantan to new modern vibes – with over 2,612 completed residences and a current population of 15,000 residents,” said TMB group chief executive officer Datuk Shahrul Nizam Abdul Aziz.
Building a modern-day township
With the experience of more than 12 years in KotaSAS development, KotaSAS is committed to providing one of the best facilities, utilities and events in town ensuring the exclusivity of the township.
KotaSAS has incorporated smart home systems and infrastructure as the key enabler to achieve its vision and it is a township with the largest smart living system on Malaysia’s East Coast in partnership with Wawasan Intact Properties (Pahang) Sdn Bhd (Wawasan Intact Group).
Since the beginning of crafting the masterplan of the township, KotaSAS aimed to create a well-curated township featuring important facilities and utilities such as schools, mosques, state administrations, petrol stations, commercial centres, sewage treatment plants (STP), reservoirs, cemetery and bus stops among others.
It was also important that the township feels secure, which is why KotaSAS also included citywide CCTVs and guarded neighbourhoods with a 24-hour auxiliary police patrol.
Meanwhile, the township also reflects KotaSAS’s social responsibility with primary and secondary schools, recreational parks and lakes and sports facilities to benefit its community.
It also offers a green and healthy environment with landscaped parks and jogging tracks which would accentuate a healthy lifestyle.
Besides that, the township also includes a Central Business District that spans some 280 acres, offering key iconic catalysts such as Pusat Pentadbiran Sultan Ahmad Shah (PPSAS), Masjid Bandaraya and Kompleks Pusat Islam Pahang, and East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), retail malls and office suites.
To amp up the convenience of its residence, the township also has a Tasek Commercial Centre is touted as the first lifestyle retail destination that offers great options in restaurants and convenient services such as TMG Supermarket, Mr DIY hardware store, Family Mart and 7-Eleven Store among others to elevate the community's quality of life.
KotaSAS will also house the main East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) station in Kuantan, connecting Port Klang on the west coast, through KotaSAS and northwards to Kota Bharu, carrying both passengers and freight.
“We anticipated its operations by 2026, just in time to welcome a new generation of dynamic growth in KotaSAS and Kuantan.
“We are currently developing the second State Mosque which is located near the Sultan Ahmad Shah Administrative Centre, which will be widely utilised as a religious complex governed by Majlis Ugama Islam dan Adat Resam Melayu Pahang (MUIP),” added Datuk Shahrul Nizam.
