Tropicana takes inspiration from one of the world’s most liveable cities, Melbourne
Taking inspiration from the world's most liveable cities, Tropicana Corporation Bhd (Tropicana) is incorporating the best aspects of these cities into its projects. A prime example is its 88-acre freehold Tropicana Metropark, which is already giving the city of Subang Jaya a breath of fresh air.
Comprising residences, commercial and education elements, as well as ample greenery, the thriving township takes inspiration from one of the world’s most liveable cities – also Australia’s most liveable city – Melbourne and the Yarra River.
Thus far, Tropicana has completed six phases within Tropicana Metropark. These include the township’s Urban Park, the Sri KDU International School, the 627-unit Pandora Serviced Apartments, as well as 571 Paloma Serviced Residences and 16 Courtyard Villas in 2017; the Tropicana Metropark Link in 2018 and the most recent addition of the 587-unit Paisley Serviced Residences.
Nature and nurture
Tropicana Metropark positions liveability and community at the front and centre, establishing a sprawling 9.2-acre Urban Park, which makes up more than 10% of the township’s acreage, to bring residents closer to nature.
Consisting of a man-made lake and park, the Urban Park was constructed to not only enhance the development but also create a holistic element throughout the development.
Easily accessible from every part of the township and pedestrian-friendly, it reflects Tropicana’s efforts to facilitate a healthier lifestyle among residents by encouraging walking, instead of vehicles.
To further add to the convenience, the township has also introduced a unique park-front retail experience for the Tropicana Metropark community and its immediate surrounding neighbourhoods of Subang Jaya, Shah Alam and Glenmarie.
Acknowledging the role of education in establishing a strong base for the path of success among the nation’s next generation of talents via academic and character excellence, Tropicana Metropark has set its sights to focus on education through the Sri KDU International School.
The international School, which provides foundation year to year 12 programmes in the English language to students between the ages of three to 18, seeks to empower a diverse and inclusive community of safe, happy and successful learners who aspire to positively impact others.
This is in addition to its excellent accessibility, as it is in close proximity to six major highways – one of which is thanks to the purpose-built direct Tropicana Metropark Link that connects Federal Highway to the township, which helps shorten the commute time for its residents and visitors.
Incorporated in 1979, Tropicana was listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd in 1992 but rebranded itself in 2013.
The property player has since transformed into one of Malaysia’s leading conglomerates with diversified business interests in property development and management, property investment, recreation and resorts, investment holdings and many more.
With over 40 years of celebrated excellence in development quality and innovation, Tropicana prides itself in presenting the latest and ﬁnest masterpieces that promise a new dimension of lifestyle privileges and indulgences.
Owing to its exemplary standards, the Tropicana name has become synonymous with prestige and premium investment value. In fact, to property owners, the Tropicana address can be a source of pride, a symbol of status and a legacy of their life's achievements.
The signature hallmarks of its developments lie in the prime locations and desirable lifestyle proposition it offers to residents.
Today, Tropicana has fully embraced the sustainability agenda as it has integrated and infused its operations and developments with best practices when it comes to environmental, social and governance considerations.
Not only are the Tropicana Metropark’s residential blocks certified to be green buildings, but they also leverage green energy innovation through natural processes and sustainable design.
At the same time, it has contributed to the preservation and transformation of an industrial factory into a sales gallery. The site, located in Subang Jaya, was previously a factory. Under Tropicana’s efforts, a portion of the structure has been partially preserved, recycled and retrofitted into a property gallery, which won an award from Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia.
Moreover, Tropicana Metropark – in a brilliant salute to its name – positions its Urban Park as the focal point for social interaction, building a bridge between people and nature that serves to foster a community with an appreciation for the environment.
Guided by Tropicana’s unique brand and DNA, the award-winning township remains focused on delivering long-term sustainable values.
Among the accolades it has received include the Neighbourhood Award category’s Best Boutique Township (Merit) at the StarProperty.my Awards 2017, which honours the crème de la crème of the country’s property developers and their progressive projects that promote sustainability, among other aspects. This award in particular celebrates developments that exhibit innovative designs while incorporating contemporary comforts and lush landscaping along the way.
Another notable award recently won by Tropicana Metropark hailed from the Asia Property Awards 2021, for the Best Mid End Condo/Apartment Development (Central) and Best Retail Development.
Meanwhile, the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards 2017 saw the development winning Best Mixed-use Development. During the iProperty Development Excellence Awards (iDEA) 2017, Tropicana Metropark clinched the coveted Best Mixed Development Award and People’s Choice Award.
