KLANG: Gamuda Land Bhd is giving purchasers of its Bandar Botanic houses exclusive use of the township’s newly completed RM30mil clubhouse.
Klang Municipal Council president Abdul Bakir Haji Zin will officially open the “six-star” Bandar Botanic Resort Club, said to be the biggest and the first of its kind resort clubhouse in Klang, tomorrow.
Gamuda Land managing director Chow Chee Wah said the clubhouse, completed early this year, was built on about eight acres near the gated and guarded community of Ambang Botanic.
“The clubhouse is now fully operational. It will extend to the residential community the use of new facilities and amenities, thus enhancing a wholesome lifestyle in this unique parkland township,” he said.
He was speaking to the media during a tour of the clubhouse and part of the 1,240-acre RM3bil freehold township in Klang.
Chow told StarBiz that work on the second phase of the club would begin soon.
Phase two, on about four acres, would have a large Chinese restaurant, a banquet hall and floating gazebo. It would cost RM8mil.
The clubhouse, designed by Belt Collins, an internationally acclaimed design firm, started operation on May 5.
Its facilities include a multi-purpose hall housing six badminton courts, two squash courts, three tennis courts, a room with eight table tennis tables, a 50m Olympic lap pool, large fun pool, changing rooms, reading room, children’s play area and gymnasium.
There is also a fun pub, coffee house and multi-purpose room. The monthly subscription fee is RM72.50, inclusive of 5% service tax.
Chow also announced the soft launch of 132 affordable semi-detached houses this weekend.
These houses, with lot sizes of 36ft x 75ft and 2,529 sq ft of gross floor area, are priced at RM450,000.
