In the ancient days, water sources have always been the trigger points of settlements. Although this may no longer be necessary with the convenience of piped water systems, studies show that water does have a therapeutic effect and people who live near it have better health and well-being.
Banking on the draw of water, Sunway Property offers Emerald Residence, a splendid lake view living proposition within Sunway Iskandar, Nusajaya, Johor.
Strategically located within Sunway Property’s largest integrated township, Sunway Iskandar’s lakeview precinct, this project is exquisitely crafted for those who desire contemporary living enhanced with conveniences and accessibility in an exclusive community.
To be the first landed homes in the 1,800-acre township, Emerald Residence will feature luxury homes with built-ups from 1,919sq ft to 4,192sq ft, priced from RM1.4 million.
The upmarket enclave, which has a gross development value (GDV) of RM330 million, offers a total of 222 units of spacious homes.
Nestled in 22 acres of lush landscape on a hilltop, Emerald Residence will be home to a series of link, link semi-detached and link garden villas, as well as semi-detached units, which collectively boast a modern communal living experience that is close to nature.
According to Gerard Soosay, chief executive officer of Sunway Iskandar, the residential development will offer a majestic lakeside and natural ambience next to the tranquil Emerald Lake Garden with sweeping views and modern retail convenience right at one’s doorstep.
“The Sunway Iskandar skyline is rapidly changing as the township progresses with the Citrine mixed development and Sunway International School. We are currently on track with our development and the introduction of our low density property is a timely addition as the school, retail and residential properties in the township come together. Once future residents move into their homes, they will be able to enjoy the ready amenities for them to live, learn, work and play with their families,” Gerard said.
To be completed in 2018, the guarded and gated neighbourhood will be situated close to retail amenities, quality education and an upcoming theme park for the enjoyment of families.
Emerald Residence will be the first Astro-Ready Home in Sunway Iskandar with the plug-and-play facilities.
In terms of accessibility, Gerard said that that aside from the Coastal Highway Southern Link (CHSL) completion in 2017, more commuting plans are in the pipeline to provide greater accessibility for the community.
“We are currently working closely with Causeway Link, ensuring there will be buses catered for residents working and travelling to Singapore once the community moves in next year,” he said.
To complement this residential component, the Emerald Collection will also feature the Emerald Boulevard, which is the first commercial retail shop development in Sunway Iskandar.
Fronting the main road towards the seafront precinct and future theme park, the 88 exclusive urban retail shops are now open for sale with price starting from RM1.8 million.
Following the recent Sunway Property Certainty Campaign, the developer will be offering options of its innovative packages to keen homebuyers for the landed homes in Sunway Iskandar.
“Public who are interested to find out about the offerings can visit the Sales Gallery for more information,” Gerard said.
Sunway Iskandar is one of the largest township projects with a GDV of more than RM30 billion over 1,800 acres of land, offering a world-class city balanced with the beauty of nature, making it a truly Nature’s Capital City in Iskandar. It is a development strategically located along the largest seafront stretch in Nusajaya.
Sunway Iskandar is expected to provide excellent connectivity to the residents and business owners with a driving distance of only five minutes to the Second Link via the proposed Southern Access.
A total of 700 acres, which accounts for 40 per cent of the project, is reserved as green space of equatorial rainforest integrating into the township with natural elements such as the emerald lake, lush green forest, Pendas River and Straits of Johor.
