KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Sunrise Development Sdn Bhd (SDSD) has shortlisted architectural companies to send in their designs for its RM1 billion mixed development project in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam.

The five are award-winning architectural firms namely BIG, J&H Boifills, Benoy, DP Architects and Hijjas Kasturi who are renowned for their forte in commercial developments and excellent achievements.

"Our design participants were selected based on their vast and relevant experience in the comprehensive mixed development, international exposure and commitment to sustainability," Sunrise Bhd's executive chairman Datuk Tong Kooi Ong said in a statement Wednesday, Aug 11.

The shortlisted architects are expected to present their design concept to the SDSD board of directors on Friday, and the winner will be announced at a later date, he said.

On the project in Bukit Jelutong, which will be a 50-50 joint venture between Sime Darby and Sunrise, he said the company was confident of it being as successful as its other projects.

"Having completed three commercial developments under the Sunrise brand, we are confident of replicating our success in Mont'Kiara to other geographical location, setting the benchmark for creative, contextual design and achieving a sustainable development of long-lasting architectural quality," he said.

Bukit Jelutong is a self-contained and an excellently planned community spread over 2,200 acres of prime freehold land.
