SkySierra Residences (The Valley) stands as SkyWorld's tallest building to date, also achieving the company's highest QLASSIC score at an impressive 86%.

Specialising in city-centric developments, SkyWorld focuses on building quality properties

In tandem with its population growth, Malaysia is also one of the most urbanised countries in Asia. In 2021, more than 75% of Malaysians lived in urban areas and cities. This growth is expected to pick up pace, as residents from rural areas migrate to urban areas for better employment opportunities and economic growth.

In such landscapes, SkyWorld Development Bhd is one city developer that capitalises on such urbanisation. Since its inaugural project launch in 2014, this newly public-listed urban developer has consistently grown stronger, earning recognition for its unwavering commitment to delivering innovative and high-quality homes to communities in the city. 

Specialising in city-centric development, the company focuses on creating quality high-rise residential, commercial, and affordable properties. To date, SkyWorld has delivered more than 7,600 units and has current and upcoming projects strategically situated in Setapak, Sentul, Setiawangsa, Jalan Ipoh, Taman Desa, and Bukit Jalil. 

With a total land bank of 55.66 acres in Kuala Lumpur city, the developer has successfully launched 14 projects, boasting a gross development value (GDV) of RM5.9bil. Out of these, eight projects have been completed, while 6 are currently in progress, showcasing the company's sustained momentum. 

SkyAwani 2 Residences was recognised as the FIABCI World Gold Winner  in the affordable housing category at the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence  Awards 2023. Receiving the award was SkyWorld chief executive officer Lee  Chee Seng (right).

Uncompromised Quality 

The company's dedication to quality is evident in its construction projects, consistently meeting and exceeding certification standards. When speaking to StarProperty, SkyWorld chief executive officer Lee Chee Seng shared that SkyWorld places utmost importance on the quality of all its projects. 

“Quality in the construction industry can be difficult to quantify or score. However, we believe that a good benchmark for assessing construction quality is the Quality Assessment System in Construction,” said Lee. QLASSIC, as it is commonly known, is overseen and scored by Malaysia’s very own Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB). 

Lee continues, “At SkyWorld, every product, including our affordable homes in the SkyAwani series, undergoes rigorous QLASSIC assessments and we are proud that many of our projects exceed the certification standards set.” 

Some of the scores include: 

  • SkySierra Residences (The Valley) achieved 86% 
  • SkyLuxe on the Park Residences scored 85% 
  • SkyWorld Quality Centre also managed 85% 
  • SkyMeridien earned 82% 
  • Arena Sports KL @ SkyArena attained 81% 
  • SkyAwani 2 Residences achieved 79% 
  • SkyAwani 3 Residences obtained 79% 
  • Bennington Residences @ SkyArena earned 78%
  • SkyAwani 1 Residences scored 76% 
  • Ascenda Residences @ SkyArena managed 76% 

As proof of its commitment to quality benchmarking in the local property industry, the company built SkyWorld Quality Centre - first-of-its kind in Malaysia. Signifying SkyWorld's commitment to QLASSIC, the centre acts as a quality benchmark for all SkyWorld developments besides showcasing compliant and non-compliant workmanships.

Awards and accolades

Its notable achievements extend beyond Malaysian shores. In June this year, SkyAwani 2 Residences was named the FIABCI World Gold Winner in the affordable housing category at the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2023 in Miami, USA, known as the Oscars of the real estate industry. 

SkyWorld has also been honoured as one of the Top Ten Developers in BCI Asia Awards for four years. In addition, The Edge Malaysia Top Property Developers recognised SkyAwani 3 Residences and SkyAwani 2 Residences, both receiving the Affordable Housing Excellence Award. SkyArena was acknowledged for contributing to the regeneration of Setapak, receiving the Place Regeneration Award. 

And SkySanctuary, the first natureinspired development in Setapak, received the Landscape Development Award at the 13th Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards. 

Not only recognised for its property developments, Lee pointed out that SkyWorld has also been recognised as a 4-Time Kincentric Best Employer in Malaysia, highlighting its commitment to providing a positive workplace environment. 

Projects in the pipeline 

Lee emphasised that his team is currently concentrating on two pivotal projects, namely SkySanctuary and Curvo Residences, both situated in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. Marking the urban developer's inaugural venture into property investment, SkySanctuary is slated for the retention and management of its commercial units. This expansive 40-acre development encompasses residential parcels alongside commercial space and a substantial 2.92-acre park. The residential components are designed with multi-generational living elements, while the commercial segment introduces innovative concepts like shared living spaces and a vibrant hub featuring cafes, restaurants, and shops.

SkySanctuary Central Park underscores the developer’s dedication to sustainable development, emphasising residents’ well-being and enhancing healthy living through expansive green spaces that establish a meaningful connection between people and nature. 

Curvo Residences represents the third and final residential phase within the 28-acre SkyArena, the inaugural integrated township in Setapak that incorporates the SkyArena Sports Complex. With an eye-catching facade melding two high-low towers, Curvo Residences epitomises a comfortable and sustainable living environment. Innovative features include an automated waste control system, intelligent lifts, and more. The project comprises two residential blocks, housing a total of 830 condominium units. 

As at print, the developer is working on delivering two projects, SkyAwani 4 Residences and SkyAwani 5 Residences, both located in Setapak and Sentul respectively. As SkyWorld looks ahead, its commitment to innovation, sustainability, and excellence remains steadfast, said Lee. “We are cautiously optimistic but resolutely prepared to forge ahead and embrace new challenges so as to achieve even more milestones in the upcoming year.”
