Business, living and leisure converge at Tropicana Gardens
Over 20 years of experience in the property industry and having pioneered resort-style living via the Tropicana Golf and Country Resort has culminated in Tropicana Corporation Bhd crafting a distinctive DNA.
True to form, its transit-orientated mixed development known as Tropicana Gardens is the very embodiment of that DNA with the emphasis on accessibility, connectivity, innovative concepts and designs, generous open spaces, amenities, facilities, multi-tiered security and quality.
Situated in the affluent address of Tropicana Indah, next to Kota Damansara, Tropicana Gardens is an award-winning transit orientated development (TOD) encompassing residences, offices and a shopping mall complemented by the serenity of lush landscaped gardens.
It also has a dedicated direct linkage to the Surian MRT station via a covered walkway. The mixed integrated development pushes beyond the typical confines of the blended business and lifestyle concept by providing tenants with the ability to “work, live, play, shop and entertain” at their doorsteps.
The attached shopping mall that is now open offers an impressive total built-up area of over a million sq ft sprawled across five floors. Included in the mix are Village Grocer, MBO Cinemas, as well as notable food and beverage (F&B) options.
The plethora of retail outlets will satisfy all ages of the community. Inspired by the organic forms of the Grand Canyon in the USA, the mall breaks away from monotony with a non-linear path leading to both ends, and instead uses a circular motion. The exterior is similarly akin to a canyon with a cascading facade flowing down a winding path inhabited by alfresco shops.
Interestingly, the unique curved canyon design is not purely an aesthetic feature as it serves a practical purpose to draw a cool breeze into the open area below. The design is in line with other sustainability efforts such as specialised glass to reduce solar heat gain that have contributed to the development attaining a higher Green Building Index (GBI) rating.
The seamless incorporation of nature into the architecture also transcends to the office and residential common areas. This includes terraced landscapes influenced by Japanese-themed Zen gardens and water features, lending to the development’s signature of Urban Gardens. The 397 small-office-flexible-office (SoFo) units come with a built-up of 452 sq ft to 858 sq ft, including individual washrooms and the versatility of a flexible layout via an open-plan concept catered to business needs.
Additionally, business owners concerned with disruptions by residents can put their concerns to rest given separate entrances and facilities for the SoFo units and serviced residences. On the other hand, the 630 units of serviced residences offer a selection of one to three bedrooms in a contemporary layout and a built-up area of 556 sq ft - 1,111 sq ft.
The largest units are also available in a dual-key concept for added functionality and privacy to homeowners. Melt the stresses and fatigue of life away with the resort-like ambience of the facilities that include a lounge overlooking the Petaling Jaya cityscape and Seri Selangor golf course. Residents can also take solace that no expenses were spared in terms of security given the multi-tiered security features, access card and CCTV surveillance.
Besides the inter-linked MRT station, the ease of accessibility is another prime factor to consider residing in Tropicana Gardens. Nestled in a prime location next to Kota Damansara means the development is accessible via four major highways; namely the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), Sprint Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and Penchala Link.
Families have an array of educational institutions in the vicinity to choose from such as St Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia, British International School of Kuala Lumpur, HELP International Schools or Sekolah Sri KDU as well as various higher education establishments.
Being spoilt for choice seems like an understatement in this instance as retail, entertainment and lifestyle experiences don’t just end at the attached mall. The Curve, IKEA, Sunway Giza Mall and 1 Utama Shopping Centre are just a few minutes away by car.
Exceptional convenience and rail connectivity coupled with a highly sought-after location are the key ingredients that often serve as a catalyst for a property’s value appreciation, and Tropicana Gardens ticks all the right boxes. Slated for completion in 2024, the multi-faceted development presents an enticing option for homeowners and investors alike.
