Going green outside and inside

An expanse of greenery, water and sky has the power to soothe the soul and curtail dejection and stress. That is why Matrix Concepts does not merely build shelters from the wind, rain and heat, but nurtures a nature-cherishing community that emphasises the welfare of its residents.

Over at the hilltop of Ara Sendayan, the developer has designed houses that overlook lush landscaped surroundings. The 194-acre elevated enclave is located in Matrix Concepts’ flagship township of Bandar Sri Sendayan in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.  

“Any development should preserve and protect the environment to ensure a safe habitat for future generations. It also creates a conducive place that encourages businesses and the community to thrive and grow,” Matrix Concepts Chief Marketing Officer Lim Kok Yee tells

Going green does not end with just the landscaping though. To be self-sustaining is one of the developer’s aims for its developments, hence Ara Sendayan has been planned with sustainability in mind.  Homes are fitted with green features that offer both value and practicality.

Citing the rainwater harvesting system at the semidee homes in Ara Sendayan, Lim says: “It is necessary to adopt measures to conserve water resources in all possible ways. Water is our most precious natural resource.”

Instead of installing high-tech equipment that will drive maintenance cost higher, the company has adopted passive energy-efficient designs for most houses in Ara Sendayan, such as high ceilings and ample exterior windows to ensure a generous inflow of natural air and light.

A rare find

Cadena III is the latest collection of contemporary residences at Ara Sendayan boasting a breathtaking panorama with its hilltop vantage. The guarded neighbourhood features tree-lined pathways, pockets of greenery and scenic lakeside views, while remaining within easy reach of conveniences, amenities and other daily essentials.

A tranquil lake park lies just a few minutes’ walk from the homes. The precinct also offers an abundance of facilities including a treehouse, a badminton court, workout pots and a fun ground for kids.

“Owing to its superior location and views, most developers would construct more exclusive and higher-end properties such as bungalows. Yet in Ara Sendayan, most of the units are link-houses priced around RM600,000,” Lim says.

He points out that such affordable prices for houses on a prime parcel like this are hard to come by in Seremban.

With a GDV of RM59.4 million, Cadena III comprises 59 double-storey terraced houses and 10 double-storey semidees. Prices start from RM658,888 for the former and RM1,288,888 for the latter. Completion of the freehold precinct is estimated to be in 2021.

The terraced houses come in five layouts with built-ups from 2,398 sq ft to 2,778 sq ft, in two lot sizes of 20ft by 75ft and 22ft by 75ft. All units have four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Meanwhile, the semidee units come with a lot size of 45ft by 85ft and a built-up of 3,528 sq ft with four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Since its launch in mid-May 2019, the project has garnered encouraging response, with 60% of the units sold to date.

Poised for growth

Located close to Seremban town, Ara Sendayan is conveniently accessible via the North-South Expressway (PLUS), Seremban-Port Dickson Highway, and the KLIA Linkage. The proposed Paroi–Senawang–KLIA Expressway would also enhance the enclave’s connectivity.

Nearby amenities include malls such as Mydin Hypermarket, AEON Shopping Centre, Tesco Extra, NSK Trade City Seremban and Palm Mall; medical centres such as Columbia Asia Hospital and KPJ Seremban Specialist Hospital; as well as schools such as SMK (Felda) Sri Sendayan, SJK (T) Bandar Sri Sendayan and SJK (C) Tung Hua S2 Heights.

The population in Bandar Sri Sendayan currently stands at 30,000 people, and the number is expected to increase to 120,000 upon completion of the 6,180-acre township.

Housing demand in the township is promising due to its strategic location within the Greater Klang Valley conurbation which extends the Klang Valley to the Southern parts of Seremban.

The 379,087-acre Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0 (MVV 2.0) mega project that covers Nilai, Seremban and Port Dickson in Negeri Sembilan will further boost the profile of Bandar Sri Sendayan with more investments in infrastructure, thus providing better connectivity.

Matrix Concepts also has plans to build a central business district spanning 46ha in Bandar Sri Sendayan.

“We believe that these potential catalysts will drive more homebuyers to Ara Sendayan and Bandar Sri Sendayan. Anchored by such excellent factors, the housing demand in the township remains resilient, not only attracting buyers from Negeri Sembilan, but also from the Klang Valley,” Lim offers.

With its development progressing smoothly, much of Ara Sendayan’s infrastructure is already in place as it reaches its final phase of development.

Following the success of earlier launches, buyers can also look forward to its upcoming offering of double-storey semidees in the Ervina precinct, which is expected to be launched in November 2019.
