Overwhelming response to EcoSky and EcoBotanic

KUALA LUMPUR: EcoWorld Development Sdn Bhd, a company linked to Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin, yesterday launched two property projects — one in Kuala Lumpur and the in Iskandar Malaysia — with great fanfare.

Marking the grand opening of the company’s highly-anticipated maiden development in Kuala Lumpur is [email protected] Gallery, which is an integrated mixed-use development situated on 10 acres (4.04ha) of prime land in Jalan Ipoh.

The developer also officially launched its flagship township development, EcoBotanic, in Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia.

“More than 5,000 people turned up to witness the grand opening of the EcoSky gallery and to have a preview and register; and approximately 10,000 have turned up to ballot for EcoBotanic and all international lots are sold out,” said Datuk Chang Khim Wah, EcoWorld CEO.

“Launches of EcoWorld Gallery in Kuala Lumpur and EcoBotanic in Iskandar Malaysia went very well,” he said.

The EcoSky development comprises retail units, offices and residences. It was designed as a 360º lifestyle hub for a vibrant, upwardly mobile community. The project is located between two KTM stations and within minutes of major highways such as the MRR2, NKVE and the Plus Highway.

Other amenities in the vicinity of the EcoSky development are Tesco, AEON Big Kepong, Jusco Metro Prima Shopping Centre as well as the Selayang Hospital.

The first phase of the 270 acre eco-friendly EcoBotanic township offers a total of 624 residential units which consists of 498 cluster homes and 126 semi-detached homes. Each residence comes with a personal verandah and is equipped with a plethora of green features.

“EcoBotanic will have a botanic theme with gardens and parks. The houses are inspired by colonial architecture and there is a butterfly-shaped lake as its centrepiece,” said Chang.

“The green concept in our developments has been very well received by the public based on customer feedback,” he said, adding that the second phase of EcoBotanic is open for registration.

This second instalment of the development features a three-tower high-rise residential building called EcoNest and a commercial zone with limited retail outlets named EcoBoulevard.
