First phase Alora Residences is nature-inspired and smart-home ready
The rainforest is a lively web of diverse living organisms thriving on their interdependence on one another and at the same time, being uniquely individual. Translate the workings of the rainforest into a city habitat and you get 2Fifth Avenue at USJ 25, a masterplanned mixed-use development by MCT Bhd that is eco-conscious, connected to the city pulse and self-sustaining with signature communal and retail spaces.
Located at the juncture of USJ25 and USJ21, with the USJ21 LRT Station just 300m away and the Main Place Mall USJ just across the road, the development enjoys easy access to ELITE Expressway, LDP highway, Federal Highway, and Persiaran Kewajipan. Well-known Subang Jaya amenities, including the SEGI College Subang Jaya, Inti International University and Colleges, Taylor’s University, Subang Jaya Medical Centre, USJ Taipan and SS15 Courtyard are all within 10km from the development. 2Fifth Avenue will also provide a covered walkway to the LRT station for the convenience of commuters.
Spanning 13.36 acres with a GDV of RM3bil, 2Fifth Avenue is unveiling its first phase, the Alora Residences serviced apartment. Built on 2.68 acres of freehold land, there will be 770 units in two towers with unit sizes from 932 sq ft to 1,457 sq ft. There also will be eight signature retail units on the ground level, one of which is slated for a drive-through tenant. Alora Residences’ foundational green credential is the GreenRE Gold certification garnered by incorporating extensive energy efficiency measures and green designs. The common areas are fitted with energy-saving light fittings and the blocks use a regenerative lift system to save energy, while units have outwards-facing living rooms and most of the bedrooms to optimise natural lighting and ventilation. Using architectural coping as a shading feature, heat penetration into habitable spaces is reduced to comply with GreenRE ratings.
Moreover, attention is also paid to the area of water efficiency. Residents will be benefiting from access to good quality water with the provision of ready-to-drink filtered water as well as WELS-rated fittings in the units to minimise water wastage. In addition, Alora Residences will be using the rainwater harvesting method to water the landscape.
For comfort and ease, the units are equipped with smart switches in the living room and have smart-home-ready infrastructure for an upgrade anytime. Another forward-looking feature is the provision of EV chargers to further reduce carbon footprint. Residents will also be using a smart app for security and engaging management services.
At the facility space, greenery is not mere landscaping. To achieve the best verdant quality, the trees and plants are specially selected from local species for better growth and ease of maintenance. Their respective placement and relative density are methodically planned to absorb CO2 and release oxygen for better air quality.
With a total area of more than 32,000 sq ft, the facility podium at level 10 and rooftops are designed to mimic a tropical garden that overlooks the cityscape, featuring a resort-like Horizon Pool, outdoor lounge with swinging chairs by the cascading waters, cubicle bonding pods at the rooftop garden and the sky gym, to name a few in the list of its 26 facilities.
Within the larger masterplan, an ecosystem comprising retail precinct and three communal spaces are being planned. With the rainforest as the guiding model, all components have a distinct greenery concept designed to be functional and supportive of the space and its users. The retail precinct, with relatively heavier footfall traffic expected, will be balanced by multi-tiered greens resembling the sunken oasis. The Sanctuary Park will be lined with trees to provide shaded areas alongside the open spaces, while two other communal parks, one of which will be the pet-friendly park, will serve as the green lungs for the entire development.
With such care being put into the development, Alora Residences and 2Fifth Avenue as a whole will be a hub for a sustainable and healthy way of living, providing residents a thriving ecosystem to live, shop, play and socialise just like the self-sustaining rainforest. Alora Residences' unit configuration comes in three bedrooms and four bedrooms, with one or two car parking bays allocated. This allows for a wide range of home buyers from bachelors to small and mid-size families as well as empty nesters looking for a more manageable home that comes with a healthy surrounding.
The units’ starting price is from RM694,000 and with completion targeted at Q3 2027. For more information, visit https://2fifthavenue.com/.
