KUCHING: Foreseeing the growing demand for residential as well as commercial property at the Samalaju Industrial Zone, Samalaju Properties Sdn Bhd (Samalaju Properties) is currently developing the Samalaju Eco Park Township.
Ryan Jalla Ridu, the senior marketing and product development executive for the company noted that, “The Samalaju Eco Park was born out of our vision to provide a balanced, healthy and sustainable lifestyle to the thousands working in Sarawak’s energy intensive and heavy industries. The town has been developed with its future residents in mind, by firstly understanding the needs of the current and future community.”
The Eco Park is carefully laid out to receive minimal sun exposure yet maximum daylight and air flow. They are also placed such that each home is a short leisurely walk away from recreational spaces, parks and community amenities, increasing the conveniences of residents.
The full development which is slated to be completed in five to 10 years time is approximately 2000 acres. The township, a first of its kind green township development with a mix of residential and commercial developments, has been planned to cater to lifestyles of the future. The Eco Park will be progressively developed and enlarged to stay updated to changing living trends.
Governing each phase of development is a set of stringent mandatory guidelines focused on environmental, economic and social sustainability.
Planned as a self-contained and fully equipped township, residents enjoy easy accessibility to all their daily needs. Tree- lined pedestrian paths, bicycle tracks and public bus and rail transportation networks connect homes to a multitude of amenities such as F&B services, post office, parks and recreational facilities, allowing residents to enjoy car-free lifestyle.
Having obtained approvals from the Sarawak State Government, construction of the first 160 units of apartments has commenced, and is expected to be ready by the first quarter of 2016.
The commercial centre of the township, which will comprise of a mix of shop-houses, mix-use complexes, markets, shopping centres will be centred on a canal system, with shops being afforded frontages of the canal and river walk. It will provide a conducive environment for a variety of commercial and entertainment outlets and activities and will encompass alfresco dining, street cafes and markets as well as entertainment outlets.
