KUALA LUMPUR: Sunway SPK Homes is in the midst of obtaining the Malaysian Green Building Index (GBI) certification for its residential project Sunway SPK 3 Harmoni in Bandar Manjalara, Kepong.
Sunway City Bhd’s property development division managing director Ngian Siew Siong told theedgeproperty.com that the 180 townhouses, spread over 11.6 acres of freehold land, will sport solar hot water, cavity walls, louvered sun-screens, light green-tinted glass, roof space ventilation louvers and rain-water harvesting.
In addition, all units will be built with a north-south orientation to limit heat build-up inside the houses to reduce the need for mechanical cooling.
The gated and guarded residential development is targeted for a soft launch sometime this month. It will comprise 3-storey townhouses spread over 11.6 acres of freehold land, built at a cost of RM150 million. Each townhouse will contain two units of one and a half stories each.
Each unit comes with three plus one bedrooms and four bathrooms, with a built-up area of 2,290sq ft to 2,580 sq ft. Lot sizes come in either 26 ft x 87 ft or 26 ft x 97 ft, depending on the length of the driveway.
“Each townhouse at the central two rows will face a central linear garden which is 40 ft to 70 ft wide, meandering walkways and lush park landscaping while the north-most and south-most rows face a linear garden which is 20 ft to 40 ft wide,” he said while declining to disclose the price of the units.
The project is developed by Sunway SPK Homes Sdn Bhd, a joint venture (JV) project between Sunway City Bhd (50% equity) and Sharikat Permodalan Kebangsaan Bhd (SPKB) (50% equity). The vehicle was set up to develop four land parcels in Bandar Manjalara measuring 63 acres.
Under the JV terms, SPKB will contribute the development land while Sunway SPK Home will contribute to and bear the entire cost and expense of developing the land.
