KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 1): Australia-based EXAL marked its entry into the Malaysian property market late last year with a sustainable space for multi-generational living, the SÓL Estate project in Kuching, Sarawak.
According to a media release by EXAL, managing director Albert Ko is “bringing EXAL back to his roots” in the Land of Hornbills via SÓL Estate.
“For me, coming home to Kuching, was like rediscovering a part of me that had been missing for decades,” Ko said in an earlier report during the launch of SÓL Estate last year.
A boutique developer which had its origin in Western Australia, EXAL brings a combined experience of over 25 years in real estate to this project.
“Operating with the vision of providing clients better ways of living, beyond buildings, EXAL consistently strives to seek mutual gains with its partners and stakeholders,” stated EXAL. Currently, EXAL has 12 development projects under its belt with completed projects and on-going projects.
This includes single-unit and townhouse properties, apartments, such as Midland Heights, Yugo Waterford, and de Central, Beckenham, mixed developments —Infill Developments—, and township projects.
Back in Malaysia, SÓL Estate is situated on Arang Road West, Kuching. The RM365 million residential project covers 28.5ha and boasts meticulously crafted solar-orientated structures with a beautifully functional design.
“Prioritising sustainable, multi-generational living, through SÓL Estate, EXAL seeks to harness the unexplored potential of Sarawak’s property market,” said EXAL.
“We pride ourselves on creating developments with integrity — development projects which are curated based on the core values of our company — professional expertise, whole life cycle service and commitment,” said Ko.
“Our team utilises our professional expertise and background in project delivery, legal, finance, and real estate to best serve our clients. At the same time, we understand that the property development cycle is a multi-layered process, and we work towards adding value to each phase of the development value chain, and committing ourselves to excellence and integrity in every project we undertake,” he added.
SÓL Estate currently features 269 bespoke homes across three phases, with 70% of the phase one properties sold, while the rollout for phase two is slated for 4Q2023.
Some of EXAL’s projects in Australia, which are currently ongoing include:
* Waterford Purpose-Built Student Accommodation, which is located at the doorstep of Curtin University and Canning College. The proposed development comprises private student rooms and several retail outlets, and will be the first privately operated student accommodation within close proximity to the university, providing safe and secure accommodation to students of the university.
* Melvista on Broadway, a proposed boutique residence consisting of 25 spacious apartments and 2 luxury penthouses, as well as commercial facilities. This development marks a new benchmark in contemporary architectural elegance and incorporates state-of-the-art sustainability features, boasting a NatHERS Rating of up to 8 stars.
