PETALING JAYA: Property developer Gamuda Land Sdn Bhd has begun the process of handing over the first phases of two of its townships – Gamuda Gardens in Sungai Buloh and twentyfive.7 in Kota Kemuning.
Lucent Residence in twentyfive.7, a 257-acre self-sustained township, was launched in 2017 comprising 181 units of superlink homes and 98 units of semi-detached houses. About 80% of Lucent Residence is sold to date. This RM4.2bil township is expected to be fully completed by 2030.
On the northern side of Klang Valley, Gamuda Gardens will see the delivery of vacant possession (VP) for 562 units of two-storey terrace homes in Village Homes precinct.
The precinct has direct access to the waterfront village, clubhouse and a 50-acre pet-friendly central park. These homes were launched in 2017 and more than 83% has been sold to date.
Gamuda Gardens is a 15-year development planned with seven precincts and an estimated gross development value of RM10bil.
“We warmly welcome our new community to their new homes which we are glad to say befits their new normal lifestyle. The feedback that we are receiving from our customers tells us that they highly anticipate the handover and can’t wait to move into their new homes, especially after experiencing the movement control order (MCO).
“This assures us once again that with mindful town-making, a good town such as Gamuda Gardens and twentyfive.7 take into consideration people’s lifestyle beyond their home place. When we handover today, our parks are ready, placemaking and infrastructure are in place, essentials such as F&B (food and beverage) and grocery are nearby. When people visit our towns, they will get a feel for the town’s personality and they will want to be a part of it,” said Gamuda Land CEO Ngan Chee Meng.
During the handing over process, strict standards of procedures will be administered closely throughout the entire process. Every customer is advised to pre-reserve their desired date through the Gamuda Land Mobile App as limited slots are available each day to comply with the physical distancing mandate.
One change that the pandemic has brought upon is the appreciation for nature as well as a more generous living space, according to Ngan. Besides having direct access to the central park, homes in Gamuda Gardens and twentyfive.7 feature practical layout, making it easier for residents to convert the home space according to their respective lifestyle, he said.
Windows and skylight are placed to maximise natural daylight and views of the outdoor greenery. Linear parks in both townships allow more access to green and open space within the precinct, improving the overall well-being of the community.
Residents with pets will appreciate the pet-friendly spaces in both townships where their pets will have space to run around.
“We understand that handover is probably the most crucial process of our customers’ property ownership journey with us as it is the first time they will be seeing their dream home after months of anticipation.
“We are glad to be able to keep to our promise and deliver vacant possession at this time when we can give our customers something exciting to look forward to,” added chief operating officer Aw Sei Cheh.
Residents have to say
The first family to receive their keys to their new home in Gamuda Gardens are Sha’arin Razali Wong and celebrity Yasmin Hani who decided on Gamuda Gardens due to its location.
“As we lead hectic lives, especially with two young children, we were looking for a place where we can have a balance of serenity in our home but still being well-connected to the city.
“When we first came here, we were immediately sold by the natural beauty of Gamuda Gardens, and to our surprise, it wasn’t too far from PJ (Petaling Jaya). Our children especially love the central park, and we appreciate that the masterplan of this township includes essentials such as commercials, school, clubhouse, retail, food,” said Yasmin.
At twentyfive.7 Chong Leong Hwee was the first resident to receive her keys to her Lucent Residence unit.
Chong said: “We chose twentyfive.7 out of the many developments around this area due to Gamuda Land’s good track record. What attracted us was the environment that we saw when we first visited this township.
“We like that our home feels serene with the lakes and parks yet our family also love to spend time at the mall, so this place is great. We won’t have to drive around looking for a car park spot at the mall. We can just take a leisurely walk across the central park and will be there in a few minutes plus there are lots of trees here so we can enjoy a comfortable walk.”
