KUALA LUMPUR: City developer SkyWorld Development Bhd (SkyWorld) has won four awards at the StarProperty Real Estate Developer Awards 2023, cementing its position as a formidable force in urban development.
Held at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur on May 18, SkyWorld was recognised for their work and emerged the winner for:
- Ranked No 1 in the All-Stars Award (non-listed company category)
- The Frontier Finder Award (Excellence) for SkyBlox @ SkySanctuary, Setapak
- The Business Estate Award (Honours) for SAMA Square @ SkySanctuary, Setapak
- The Skyline Award (Honours) for Curvo Residences @ SkyArena, Setapak
“These wins have given us a much-needed boost and encouragement to continue doing what we do best as a city developer. As we strive to create innovative products for better living, I would like to acknowledge the team whose hard work and commitment has been crucial in making this happen,” said SkyWorld chief executive officer Lee Chee Seng after receiving the award from Deputy Local Government Development Minister Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir.
There are two exciting projects under the SkySanctuary master development that SkyWorld Group is proud of - SkyBlox and SAMA Square, he said.
A revolutionary concept, SkyBlox was created with sustainability in mind to become one of Malaysia’s first truly sustainable homes for urban dwellers. Its goal is to turn vacant lands into temporary living experiences with a design that is easily removable and relocated to another site by using prefabricated design with a modular system.
“We spent a lot of time, from conducting feasibility studies to product development, design planning and optimisation, to the final product launching to refine the idea of reusing the home in an effort to promote sustainability,” shared Lee.
The strategy is to utilise the unutilised land temporarily for a period of 7 to 10 years while creating a vibrant living landmark before it is fully developed into a future permanent housing.
“SkyBlox is uniquely designed to address high rental issues within the city where it is able to provide affordable and flexible accommodations that are coupled with the latest facilities,” Lee added.
SkyWorld sets itself high standards in pushing the sustainable envelope with SAMA Square, targeted to launch during Q3 of 2023. SAMA Square is expected to play a crucial role in creating vibrant and sustainable communities by providing a range of amenities and services that enhances the quality of life for residents and visitors. It serves as a gathering space for locals and multi-generational users, while focusing on unique experiences of Shop, Appetite, Market and Activities.
Architectural forms and streetscapes at SAMA Square create a contemporary urban space that helps drive economic development in Setapak, creating job opportunities, and contributing to the local economy, which in turn increases property values and the overall quality of life within the area.
“We see SkySanctuary master development as an essential component of its mixed-use projects, and emphasise on the importance of creating high-quality, sustainable, and community-oriented commercial spaces. With a vision to become the epitome of simplicity as the Always Best City Developer with a clear purpose to Make Living Better, SkyWorld is committed to delivering an exceptional living experience in the city which is aligned with our brand pillars - Sky Living Experience, Innovation, and Value Creation,” Lee shared.
