09 October 2014

Taste of green living at Tropicana carnival IN conjunction with property developer Tropicana Corporation Berhad's green carnival themed "Redefining the Art of Living", drop by the gallery this Saturday for a rough measure of the developer's values, its concept, purpose and plan for Tropicana Metropark, besides a fun-filled day of environmental-friendly activities to entertain all in the family.

At the launch of the carnival in September, Tropicana's executive director Pam Loh shared a little about its Subang Jaya development, Tropicana Metropark, which is designed to offer more than just a home. "We give our customers a lifestyle... one that is balanced, promotes well-being and provides plenty of lush open spaces," she said. The development promotes healthy living and a balanced lifestyle. One of its outstanding features is its 9.2-acre Central Park in which a lake, which uses a bio-filtration system to harness energy, is nestled within.

The self-sustaining "green" technology helps minimise water wastage and defect unpleasant odours. The park also provides dedicated tracks for cycling and jogging. The entire area was designed with security and crime prevention in mind Ideally located nearby is an alfresco strip consisting of integrated commercial elements including F&B outlets. In 2013, the first phase of the development, Pandora Serviced Residences, was launched. It offered 627 residential units in three different designs, each between 600 and 1,200 sq ft, across two towers. Take-up rate was fabulous with only a couple of units left today.

Tower B of Paloma Serviced Residences, was recently launched. It offers designs and concepts that meet the needs of a wide range of market segments. Purchaser Roger Chew said, "It is in a very good location and even my parents were strongly supportive of my decision to buy a property at Tropicana Metropark. The park is definitely an outstanding part as it truly makes me aware of how important it is to live a healthy life." Echoing the plaudits of many other Tropicana Metropark purchasers, Peter Lim said, "I love the integrated aspect of the development, especially given the size of it I also think it is a great idea for not only residents but people who work there or visit - where they come together in a place and enjoy the various facilities the place has to offer."
