BANDAR Enstek aims to be a low-carbon township as it plans for eco-friendly features of solar-powered lighting and rainwater harvesting at its new clusters of resort-like clubhouse, villas and bungalows.
“Wherever possible we now want to incorporate natural lighting, recycle building materials and have the buildings powered by renewable energy like solar,” TH Properties chief executive officer Zaharuddin Saidon said.
On immediate plans for the company, he said, a RM150 million residential project comprising terraced, double-storey linked and semi-detached houses will be launched later in the year.
“We’ll design these luxury villas with Green Building Index certification in mind,” Ascenteus managing director Faizan Khan said.
The gross development value of the 80ha project, estimated at RM1.2 billion in Bandar Enstek, Nilai, will be carried out in three phases. About 10ha will be set aside for the country club, while the remaining area will be used for luxury residences.
TH Properties Sdn Bhd, the overall developer of Bandar Enstek, had in July 2009, signed an agreement with GHM Ltd to manage the luxury-themed country club.
“We plan to have 40 villas and residences in each phase. This development is expected to be complete by 2015,” Faizan told reporters at the management and branding agreement signing ceremony between Ascenteus, Davanam Constructions and GHM Ltd.

The 2,046.4ha Bandar Enstek township, launched a decade ago, is expected to be fully developed by 2025. To date, 30 per cent of the land is built up and well-populated.
