ISSUE 1, PROPERTY
Sunway City Ipoh (SCI), the largest integrated township in Perak, unveiled projects with a total gross development value (GDV) of over RM500 million within the next three years.
Among the new developments unveiled were the expansion of The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, Lost World Outlet Mall, Lost World Serviced Apartments with hotspring facilities, and Hilltop Homes.
An economic boon to Ipoh and Perak
“The new developments will further boost critical mass and breathe more business and employment opportunities into the thriving township of Sunway City Ipoh, furthering our vision to be Perak’s socioeconomic growth engine as a master community developer,” said Wong Wan Wooi, Senior General Manager, Sunway City Ipoh.
A 30-acre development comprising Lost World Outlet Mall and Lost World Serviced Apartments will complement the existing components within Sunway City Ipoh. These are strategically positioned adjacent to the two world class resorts of The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat and Lost World of Tambun (Theme Park, Hotel & Spa) incorporating a riverside al fresco boulevard. Totaling 600,000 square feet in gross floor area (GFA), the development will feature more than 3,000 car parking bays. It is expected to commence in 2016 and will take approximately two years to complete.
The four-block Lost World Serviced Apartments encompassing more than 1000 units will be positioned to face the luscious, undulating hills, river and greenery with a collection of premium units overlooking the Lost World Water Theme Park. The development will have a dedicated entrance for its residents and a grand lobby with a green natural street-scape. The podium level will house a range of facilities such as natural hotspring “onsen” pools, an infinity swimming pool, multipurpose hall, gymnasium, sauna rooms and podium garden. The apartments range in size from 600–1,200 square feet.
The Hilltop Homes will add another 1,000 units to the existing 1,200 units of residential homes in Sunway City Ipoh.
The RM74 million Serene Villas residential development, which consists of 88 units of semi-detached clusters and superlink units, is currently underway. It is another eco-friendly, low-density, gated and guarded development.
