New heights for Kajang
Developer to launch first phase of 10-year project

TROPICANA Corp Bhd is bringing its brand of high-end development to Kajang with its upcoming launch of Tropicana Heights Kajang.

Tropicana executive director of marketing and sales Pam Loh said the new development in Kajang will pursue a balance between city convenience and welcoming communal warmth.

"We have put in a lot thought into understanding our target market's lifestyle and the design of this development reflects that lifestyle," Loh said.

Tropicana Heights Kajang, with an estimated gross development value of RM2.3 billion. sits on 199 acres of freehold land, which was previously the Kajang Hill Golf Club.

The project, which is expected to take about 10 years to complete, will feature a market square, landed residential property, condominiums, neighbourhood schools as well as significant green areas.

The area is easily accessible via the SILK and Lekas Highways and flyovers and upgrade of roads have been proposed to service the nearby developments.

The launch of its first phase. Fairfield Residences, is slated for tomorrow, loh noted that registration and enquiries on Tropicana Heights Kajang are already pouring in as the Tropicana branding is recognised for its quality and innovation.

With the launch of the first phase. Tropicana is also expected to open its show village soon to showcase its Kajang property.

Fairfield Residences will encompass 25 acres of land and will feature two-storey and three-storrey terrace homes.

The terrace houses will be priced from RM736.000 to RM1.4mil per unit with sizes starting from 2.135sq ft.

While this translates to an average price of RM360psf which is on the high side for a property in Kajang, Loh points out that the pricing is a reflection of the quality of Tropicana Heights.

Fairfield Residences is planned as a tow density residential area with only about 11 units of homes per acre. The first phase will be a guarded community with only one entry and exit point.

In line with the developers vision for a green development, a sizeable part of Tropicana Heights Kajang has been allocated for green space. This includes a 16 acre central park flanked by mature trees transplanted from the existing golf club. The central park will also feature a children's playground, fitness garden, futsal court and spice garden among other things.

There will also be a l.5acre community linear park within Fairfield Residences itself.

Tropicana is well-versed with high-end products. The developer pioneered the concept of resort-themed developments in Malaysia with the introduction of its 625 acre Tropicana Golf & Country Resort in 1992. Tropicana has since moved on to develop a myriad of other projects including Tropicana Indah Resort Homes in Petaling Jaya and mixed developments in Penang and Johor.
