PETALING JAYA (June 25): As at 10.30am, 50 units of the landed homes at Setia EcoHill 2's first phase, Springfield Residences, were booked.
A crowd of about 200 prospective buyers waited at the township's sales gallery in Semenyih since 6am to book their units, with some even camping overnight, said Setia EcoHill deputy general manager Koh Sooi Meng.
"We are excited to see the good turn up. Setia EcoHill 2 offers good concept and lifestyle living, we are certainly confident of the take up of the first phase (of Setia EcoHill 2)," he told TheEdgeProperty.com.
The sales gallery opened its doors at 7am today instead of the usual 10am for buyers to get their queue numbers, which will enable them to choose their units, he said.
"The signing of the sale and purchase agreements are expected to take place next month," he said.
First in the queue was business owner Ting, who said he was here since last night.
"My wife, son and daughter and I were here since 8pm last night. We saw the (partially) completed Setia EcoHill and really like the concept, infrastructure, facilities and the environment here. We came here earlier because we can’t afford to miss this," he told TheEdgeProperty.com after he completed the bookings for two semi-dee units.
Springfield Residences comprises 258 units of 2-storey terraced homes and 96 units of 2-storey cluster semi-detached homes, priced from RM553,000 to RM668,000 and are scheduled for completion by mid-2018.
The terraced homes will come in three designs with built-ups for the units starting from 1,859 sq ft to 2,148 sq ft while the semi-dees will have built-ups of 2,028 sq ft.
This phase has a gross development value (GDV) of RM228 million and will occupy 180 acres of the 1,010-acre Setia EcoHill 2, which has a GDV of RM5 billion.
Nearby amenities include hypermarkets such as Tesco and eateries such as McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and KFC. Some of the educational institutions nearby include SK Kampung Rinching, Nottingham University (Malaysian campus) and Universiti Putra Malaysia.
