PETALING JAYA (Aug 3): Sunway Bhd’s real estate arm Sunway Property is setting up a regional office and sales gallery in the northern state of Malaysia, Penang, which is scheduled for completion in April 2017, the developer said in a statement yesterday.
In support of the local government’s green initiatives, Sunway Property is building a 2-storey office with a “sustainable design setting” on a 20,000 sq ft parcel at Jalan Anson beside Wisma TNB, it said.
The company added that it also aims to obtain the Green Building Index certification for its office building and is working towards complying with the Green Office Project — a rating tool developed by the Penang Green Council to promote adherence to sustainability principles.
Sunway Bhd managing director of the property development division for Malaysia and Singapore Sarena Cheah said, “We are pleased to finally reveal our plans for Sunway Property @ Anson to all Penangites.
“The office and sales gallery will provide a state-of-the-art facility that offers convenience and quality experience for our customers and visitors to better understand our integrated products across various regions in Malaysia.”
Meanwhile, Sunway Property also unveiled the “We are Sunway” campaign, gathering the group’s business units in Penang, namely property, hospitality, retail, healthcare, education, and manufacturing and trading to provide a sustainable living for Penang’s communities.
“Aside from being a developer, we are also co-investors in the communities we build. Through our unique Build-Own-Operate business model, our communities will be assured that we are here to stay for the long run with a lifelong commitment to grow together with them, Cheah added.
“We believe through our forward-thinking view, expertise in creating integrated and sustainable townships and developments as well as our master community developer proposition, we are able to bring our best integrated developments to the local communities as well,” she added.
