SETIA ALAM: Property developer Suntrack Development  Sdn Bhd (Suntrack) believes that multi-ability, multi-generational, inclusive homes are the new norm especially in the age beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.

Unveiled Tuai Residence in Setia Alam, Shah Alam, Suntrack’s latest project was designed with a strong emphasis on  safety for children and the elderly, accessibility and independent living for all ages and  abilities, and community building. 

“The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly brought some basic, yet crucial issues to light. For example,  we all now know how it feels to be isolated and restricted to the confines of our home. 

“This is  often the fate suffered by seniors and the differently-abled in our community, due to limitations in  the access to facilities as well as a lack of communal spaces. Sadly, the ecosystem generally doesn’t support them and the inaccessibility stifles their ability to be productive and active members of  society,” said Suntrack CEO James KK Tan.

After almost three years of research into limitations in accessibility at homes, the 330-unit Tuai Residence with a gross development value of RM194mil,  was  designed with attention to details for an inclusive environment, he said.

As a result, specific bedrooms and toilets within each condominium unit are  designed with spaces large enough to cater for wheelchair turning radius. Other features include wider doorways, ramps to access car parks, large electrical switches at 1.2m height and tac tiles on floors in common corridors. 

In addition, Tuai Residence maximised safety precautions like fire sprinklers into common areas and inside each unit. Every floor is equipped with a protected fire-refuge area for those unable to run down stairs to converge while waiting  for rescue efforts. Fire staircases are also designed for stretcher-use. 

Another extra-mile feature that caters to the wellness needs of the community is a Care Office on site, manned by a registered nurse and trained caregivers for medical emergencies from its collaboration partner, Cality Care, an Australian  company providing home-care. 

Care Office staff are trained in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator usage for emergencies. Cality Care also provides home care from low to  high care for the residents, on separate charges. 

Tuai Residence aims to promote community building and encourage intergenerational  friendships between young and old residents. 

Its facilities aim to  encourage communal activities such as line dancing, tai chi, communal cooking, group yoga and  community gardening. 

The development is designed with a Clubhouse for get-togethers, generous  numbers of meeting and multi-function rooms, swimming pool and gymnasium, multi-sports hall  for badminton, ping pong and basketball as well as communal herb gardens and a communal  kitchen. The activities will be managed by a dedicated Tuai Community Manager. 

Developed on 6.6 acres of freehold land,  the project has a low-density of 50 units per acre. It is expected to be completed in 2023.  Priced from RM490,000 onwards, the units range from 1,109 sq ft to 1,927 sq ft.
