Savana @ Utropolis Batu Kawan has amenities that promote green and healthy living
Known as the people’s developer, Paramount Property goes the extra mile in designing a versatile, multidimensional living space with Savana @ Utropolis Batu Kawan, for those seeking an upscale living experience in a dynamic and inspiring environment. Nestled in the rapidly rising township of Batu Kawan, Savana was conceptualised to be practical and stylish with numerous amenities that make for healthy and green living.
One of the residential components of the award-winning Utropolis Batu Kawan, Savana adds an extra notch of vibrancy to Penang’s first university metropolis that houses the UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College.
Located in the southern district of Seberang Perai, Utropolis Batu Kawan represents Paramount Property’s flagship development, a flourishing hub that incorporates leisure, entertainment, retail, education, and residential elements.
This enclave is 1km away from Penang’s second bridge link, the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge and enjoys quick access to the North-South Highway.
The township is also a short walk away from IKEA, Design Village Outlet Mall and the upcoming Columbia Asia Hospital, providing quick and easy access to amenities central to a modern lifestyle. The 36-storey Savana serviced apartment offers everything urban city dwellers expect, including the serenity of their own exclusive enclave.
Targeted at families seeking homes for their own stay or investors, it is well-positioned for capital appreciation prospects and high rental opportunities. The development has a 3.5- acre freehold sprawl and is surrounded by Paramount Property’s ongoing residential developments of Suasana, Sinaran and Sensasi.
Savana has a gross development value of RM329mil for its 522 units of serviced apartments, slated for completion in March 2027.
Designed to suit your lifestyle
One of the unique features of Savana is its versatility in space design, which allows for smooth lifestyle transitions. The dual-key Type C, C1 and C2 units offer flexible space that can be converted into five bedrooms, making it ideal for larger or multi-generational families. Each dual-key unit also comes with two to three car parks with a distinct door-front car park facility. Each unit in Savana is comfortably sized, ranging from 912 sq ft to 1,643 sq ft, with either three bedrooms and two bathrooms or four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The entry price is set at RM541,000 or from RM509 per sq ft, making it attractive for those looking for premium living at a reasonable price. All units come with kitchen cabinets, hood and hob, digital locksets, shower water heaters, and shower screens
Sustainability in its midst
Savana’s contemporary design is both sophisticated and distinctive, accentuating space and maximising living comfort. As part of a development within the enclave of Batu Kawan, one of Malaysia’s eco-cities, Savana has been designed to be green with high standards of sustainability.
Paramount Property has painstakingly fitted the development with energy-efficient LED lights while leveraging natural daylight into its design to reduce energy usage and lower carbon emissions. The development extends its sustainability perspective by providing compost bins and recycle bins to encourage recycling and waste reduction practices among residents.
Also incorporated in the development are charging stations for electric cars, in line with Paramount Property’s aspiration to support the government’s aim to increase EV usage in the nation.
The building is vying for GreenRE certification to affirm its energy efficiency and low carbon green building status, Savana is future-proof as an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) compliant development, a step up for capital appreciation as demand for green real estate comes into the market
Emerging township of the future
A development with work opportunities nearby is always more attractive to buyers. This applies to Savana, which is at Batu Kawan, Penang’s third satellite city. Batu Kawan has a major thriving industrial park akin to that at Bayan Lepas on the island.
A reason for its popularity is its proximity to Penang’s second link bridge linking it to Batu Maung near the Bayan Lepas industrial area and Penang’s International Airport.
The site was first identified by the state government for medium-cost housing units modelled after Singapore’s Housing and Development Board scheme, dubbed Bandar Cassia at an investment of RM2.7bil followed by the construction of the Penang State Stadium, completed in 2000, and the Batu Kawan Industrial Park.
In the next 10 years, the state government has announced its intention to set up 5G infrastructure and full fibre connectivity within Bandar Cassia in Batu Kawan to serve a projected population of 250,000 by 2030. The Batu Kawan Industrial Park, which currently houses 30 multinational companies, provides employment for more than 15,000 people. Plans are underway to develop two more industrial parks. The area is also being earmarked as a medical hub consisting of private hospitals, government hospitals and international standard medical centres to capitalise on Penang’s popularity as a choice destination for medical tourism.
