Amberley, Coral well received

RAWANG: Promakmur Development Sdn Bhd's new offerings of semi-detached homes and 2-storey link homes in Emerald, Rawang has received a good response from buyers.

Promakmur — a joint-venture company between GuocoLand (Malaysia) Bhd and Hong Bee Land Sdn Bhd — said the homes were soft launched during the week running up to the developer's Triple Fortune celebration weekend carnival event on Feb 26 weekend.

"Some 135 units of the Amberley semi-detached park homes and the Coral 2-storey link homes were sold before the weekend — and by Saturday (Feb 26), all the Coral link homes have been sold out," said Promakmur managing director Yeow Wai Siaw in a press release on Tuesday, March 1.

"The excellent response speaks volumes about the increasing appeal of the self-contained township which will have a new Chinese school and a new shopping complex by the end of this year."

The Triple Fortune celebration was held in conjunction with a cheque handing-over ceremony for SJK (C) Kota Emerald, which received a RM2 million donation from the Hong Bee Foundation and Hong Leong Foundation. This was in addition to the RM3.5 million it received from the Education Ministry on Feb 11.

The school, expected to be completed in 2012 will be built on a six-acre site within the township. The school will have 24 classrooms to accommodate around 2,000 students.

Yeow said the Emerald township has been well received, and the developer will be reviewing the overall master plan of the Emerald enclave to leverage on the increasing popularity of the township.

"We will be introducing more exciting and premium homes, including bungalows and super link homes to cater to the discerning needs of sophisticated buyers and investors," he added.

The Amberley and Coral homes are gated communities within the freehold township. The Coral homes have a gross built-up of 1,834 sq ft and are priced from RM368,000 while the Amberley homes have a gross built-up of 2,357 sq ft with prices from RM 643,800.

Emerald is a 1,000-acre township located close to Rawang town and 15 minutes from the Jalan Duta toll. To date, over 1,500 houses in Emerald have been completed and handed over.
