The third phase of Tropicana Aman (Phase 3), the Cheria Residences which has a gross development value (GDV) of RM358 million is expected to be launched in mid-July. The units have built-ups ranging from 3,200 to 3,670 sq ft.
Sitting on 38.5 acres, Cheria Residences will be priced from RM1.35 million.
Besides having energy efficient and eco-friendly features, Cheria Residences will also utilise the reinforced concrete panel technology construction method to ensure a high and consistent quality building structure, said Tropicana group CEO, Datuk Yau Kok Seng during a media briefing after the signing ceremony today.
On top of that, PanaHome will offer air ventilation and heat insulation technology that provides effective flow and circulation of natural cool air, while minimising heat transmission from the ceiling unlike in conventional buildings.
“PanaHome’s PURETECH embedded ventilation system will also filter out dust and air pollutants with the filter’s ability to remove up to more than 95% of harmful air particles,” Yau added.
For security, there will be a video intercom and home network system installed.
“The built-in intercom will enable residents to see who’s at the front door without physically going out and the Panasonic security systems are also connected to the smartphone so you can always check on the house even when you are not there,” said Yau.
As the housing subsidiary of Panasonic Corp, PanaHome has built a total of 470,000 homes in Japan.
“The synergy between Tropicana’s master planning and our intelligent construction technology will definitely add more value to the Cheria Residences precinct in Tropicana Aman,” said PanaHome Malaysia managing director Haruhiko Kuwano.
Residents of Cheria Residences will also be able to enjoy wide car porches that can fit three cars side-by-side, a private 4.73-acre central park and linear garden and linear garden, a 3km pedestrian and jogging track and a dedicated community hall.
On whether Tropicana is looking to collaborate with PanaHome for similar projects in the future, Yau said that the group is not ruling out that possibility.
“We have to start somewhere and we are starting with Cheria Residences for now. We have confidence that PanaHome will deliver good quality work,” said Yau.
Tropicana Aman is an 863-acre mixed integrated township which comprises residential and commercial developments.
To date, the first phase Arahsia Residences has been fully taken up since its launch in May last year while its second phase, the Bayan Residences have been 90% taken up since its launch in August.
Meanwhile, after the launch of Cheria Residences, Tropicana will unveil Sinaria — the first commercial development in the township.
“We think the number of residential units there can support the commercial component and vice versa. They will be 2-storey shoplots on 12 acres, but we don’t have the details yet because the projects is still on the drawing board," said Ung Lay Ting, senior general manager for marketing and sales and business development.
In April 2015, Tropicana Corp signed an agreement with Tenby Schools to develop a 4.1ha international school campus at Tropicana Aman, which will have a capacity of up to 1,800 students. The first intake begins in September 2018.
