Sunway Property, the property arm of Sunway Bhd, completed the country’s first luxurious pre-fabricated home, Sakura Residence in Sunway Iskandar, Johor Bahru.
The project, a joint venture with Daiwa House Malaysia Sdn Bhd, is located within Sunway Iskandar’s Parkview Precinct and will be a private gated community with a total of 100 pre-fabricated double-storey bungalows and semi-detached houses.
According to Daisuke Usugi, managing director of Daiwa House and chief executive officer for the JV company Daiwa Sunway Development Sdn Bhd, living quality was the core consideration when designing these pre-fabricated houses.
Usugi said the unique aspects of using pre-fabricated technology include high precision structure, shorter delivery timeframe, well ventilated design, energy-saving and clean living environment.
Sakura Residence would also be the home to Japanese inspired community centre and jogging track, along with other world-class amenities encompassing the Parkview Precinct.
Chief executive officer of Sunway Iskandar, Gerard Soosay, said Sunway Iskandar will be developed in six precincts, The Lakeview, The Capital, The Parkview, The Riverside, The Seafront, and The Marketplace.
“Each precinct is designed to be a self-sustaining integrated township like our award-winning Sunway City where key components such as educational institutions, leisure hotspots, healthcare and recreation will be incorporated,” he said.
Gerard said Sunway Iskandar is by far the largest project by Sunway Property, spanning 1,800 acres of land with a gross development value of RM30 billion.
“It offers a world-class city balanced with the beauty of nature, making it a truly Nature’s Capital City in Iskandar, Johor,” he said.
Sunway Iskandar has excellent connectivity to the residents and business owners with only 5km driving distance to the Second Link via the soon to be completed Coastal Highway Southern Link opens in the first quarter of 2017.
