Opal Damansara wins two prestigious awards

KUALA LUMPUR: Sunway City Bhd's (SunCity) Opal Damansara semi-detached condominiums in Sunway Damansara recently won two prestigious property awards from both the Asian Habitat Summit 2010 and the World Association of Chinese Architects (WACA).

The 248-unit condo was developed by SunCity's subsidiary Sunway Damansara Sdn Bhd, and was designed by Arkitek Maju Bina.

During the Third Asian Habitat Summit 2010 at Fukuoka, Japan, Sunway Opal Damansara Condominium was awarded the 2010 Green Asian Townscape Award. The Asian Habitat Summit — a forum held once every two years — had the theme "Green Asia: Picturesque Cities" for the current session.

The organisers of the 2010 Green Asia Townscape Award were the Fukuoka Asian Urban Research Centre; United Nations Habitat for Asia and The Pacific; the Asia Townscape and Design Society; and the China Real Estate Association.

Simultaneously, Opal Damansara also won WACA'S 2010 Design Grand Award of Chinese Residential Projects. WACA is a platform for elite Chinese architects in the world to publicise their achievements and expertise. Through interaction and academic exchanges, WACA hopes to raise the innovation and creativity amongst architects to serve the community.

SunCity property development division managing director Ho Hon Sang said, "We are pleased that Opal Damansara has won these awards, which reflects the recognition that this innovative design promotes a green and sustainable lifestyle. We are also pleased with our collaboration with Arkitek Maju Bina, who have provided solid consultation advice to enhance the living features for residents.

"A lot of thought and effort has been invested in this project to create a practical living environment that is both contemporary and functional. Moving forward, homebuyers can certainly expect more innovative property development projects from the Group that echo these same values of excellence."

The semi-detached concept — where every unit in Opal Damansara is a corner unit — has proven to be popular and well received, SunCity said. Residents enjoy a wide array of facilities including landscaped gardens, a children's play area, swimming pools, gymnasium, tennis and badminton courts, reading room, multi-purpose hall, surau and a gazebo.

Opal Damansara is located within the 400-acre integrated Sunway Damansara township, with good access and proximity to facilities, commercial centres and shopping malls.

SunCity is a property developer with a portfolio of residential, commercial, retail, leisure and healthcare properties. It recently injected eight of its prime investment properties into Sunway Real Estate Investment Trust (SunREIT).
