PETALING JAYA: Eco World Development Group Bhd will launch Phase 2 of its Johor development, Eco Botanic, in August. Phase 1 of the project, comprising 492 cluster homes and 124 semi-dees, was launched in September 2013 and is fully sold.

The project is situated on a 325.1-acre tract in Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia, next to EduCity.

Eco World president and CEO Datuk Chang Kim Wah said Eco Botanic has achieved over RM1.116 billion in sales as at May this year.

“We believe that demand for landed homes with attractive design concepts, security and good accessibility to major highways, will still do well,” he said.

Of the 20% of foreign buyers for Phase 1, a majority are from Singapore.

Phase 2 comprises 184 units of 2½-storey super-linked houses. They have a built-up area starting from 2,700 sq ft and come in two layouts of 26 ft x 75 ft, and 28 ft x 75 ft. Prices start at RM1.2 million. 

Drawing inspiration from classic English country homes, the houses have ceilings up to 13 ft high, Chang said.
The houses sit on an elevated platform, with the driveway and a 14ft garage on the lower ground.

Chang explained that this configuration frees up the front of the house for landscaping.

“The front garden concept offers unobstructed views of nature from the living hall, while every master bedroom also has an uninterrupted view,” he said.

The houses come with a solar water heater and rain water harvesting system, and have a north-south orientation to ensure ample natural light and ventilation.

Facilities include a residents-only clubhouse with gym and pool, jogging trails, bicycle lanes, external parcourse fitness equipment, maze garden and butterfly-shaped lake. 

Eco Botanic is a fully strata-titled, gated township. The development is scheduled for completion over nine phases by 2020. It has a total gross development value of RM3.794 billion and is accessible from major highways, including the Iskandar Coastal Highway, Pasir Gudang Highway, Skudai Highway, North South Expressway and the Second Link Expressway.

Eco Botanic is five minutes from Marlborough College and Columbia Medical Centre, 10 minutes from Legoland Malaysia and Puteri Harbour, the state administrative centre, Mall of Medini and golf courses, and 20 minutes to the Senai International Airport.

“We are already previewing the super-linked houses in Phase 2 and the new concept and design have been very well received. We are confident that sales [for Phase 2] will be good,” Chang said.
