PETALING JAYA: Sime UEP Properties Bhd plans to launch the first two phases of its mixed residential development, USJ Heights, next month.
“The development is a gated and guarded concept blended in six distinct precincts.
“Each precinct is held together with a themed garden,” Sime UEP managing director Jauhari Hamidi told StarBiz.
The six precincts will be themed Malay, Balinese, Zen, English, Mediterranean and Highland gardens.
The two phases – USH2A and USH2B – in the Kayangan precinct will consist of units with land areas of 26ft by 80ft and 24ft by 80ft respectively.
The total gross development value (GDV) of the two phases is estimated at RM157mil.
The entire project, comprising 750 residential units in the Subang Jaya conurbation, has a GDV of about RM616mil.
“The development is highly accessible and serviced by planned major roads and transport system,” Jauhari said.
It also forms part of the highly marketable housing zone of the Klang Valley and is “exclusively isolated”.
At present, the site has direct access to the west of USJ and the north of the Federal Highway.
Physical concept of the development included “selective land use and intensity” with residential units having dominant land use, Jauhari said.
The USJ Heights development is expected to have generally low to medium density of 5.5 grounded units per acre.
Special consideration has also been given to orientation, location and distribution of the units.
The designs of the properties were modern contemporary with decorated facade and oversized windows to maximise natural lighting as well as spaciousness with large built-up areas, Jauhari said.
Future phases of the development will include bungalows and more designer homes.
The full development of USJ Heights is expected in 2010.
