Cora precinct at Eco Ardence to be unveiled this May


SHAH ALAM: Eco World Development Group Bhd (EcoWorld Malaysia) is expected to unveil a new phase of landed homes at its Eco Ardence township next month (May).

Located in Setia Alam, Selangor, Eco Ardence is a joint venture development by EcoWorld and Cascara Sdn Bhd. The township development has an estimated gross development value of RM8.5 billion and will be developed over the next 10 to 15 years.

Targeting young families and upgraders who are seeking resort-style homes, the new housing precinct called Cora will have a total of 250 units of landed homes with a modern contemporary design and Zen-inspired landscaping and water features.

The 41-acre freehold Cora precinct comprises 102 units of semidees, 44 units of bungalows and 104 units of garden homes. The project’s planned completion is in 2022.

Eco Ardence sales and marketing senior manager Ryan Au Yong said the first phase of Cora will be launched first, offering 71 units comprising 44 semidees and 27 bungalows.

The semidees measure 35 ft by 80 ft and come in four layout choices with built-ups ranging from 2,567 sq ft to 2,719 sq ft. Their indicative selling prices start from RM1.9 million.

The bungalows, which have a lake view, are on two land sizes – 50 ft by 85 ft and 56 ft by 95 ft. They come in five layout choices with built-ups ranging from 3,363 sq ft to 4,343 sq ft, and with indicative prices from RM2.9 million.

According to Au Yong, the garden homes will be launched later. They have a built-up size of 2,411 sq ft and are indicatively priced from RM1.6 million.

Eco Ardence divisional general manager Liew Tian Xiong told that the growing population in the Klang – Shah Alam corridor have resulted in a rising demand for lifestyle homes with safety features, recreational facilities and vibrant outdoors, by young families or upgraders.

The gated-and-guarded Eco Ardence incorporates safety features that are not only aimed at preventing crime but to ensure the safety of residents when they move around in the community.

Liew shed light on one example; instead of back lanes, pedestrian-friendly linear gardens allow residents and their families to enjoy the space without worrying about oncoming traffic.

“Like previous phases of Eco Ardence, over 20% of the land in this phase will be green areas,” he added.

Cora is a low-density housing precinct with fewer than six houses per acre.
Meanwhile, Eco World introduced its lifestyle lab concept called Ardence Labs last year to bring in retail and entertainment elements to the township, allowing people in neighbouring areas to familiarise themselves with the township’s lifestyle concept.

“Ardence Labs is important for the township as it is a move to create a location which could bring more value to all stakeholders – future residents, tenants and neighbouring communities. The Labs is doing well and we will be incorporating more wellness components soon,” he said, adding that the company is looking to bring in aged-care, family care and physiotherapy services.

Meanwhile, the 533-acre township will welcome its first batch of residents soon, at its first housing precinct Aeres which was launched in 2016. All 432 landed homes which were sold out within a year will be handed over to their owners this October. The second housing precinct called Dremien, launched in 2017, is expected to see handover in October 2020.
