PUCHONG (Jan 12): Hillcrest Gardens Sdn Bhd will be launching its latest high-rise residential project at its township Taman Puchong Utama in Puchong, Selangor this weekend.
Hillcrest Heights is located on a 7.58-acre freehold site in Taman Puchong Utama and has a GDV of RM387 million.
Comprising two blocks of 37 storeys each, the project offers 510 condominium units that come with a minimum of two car park bays per unit. There are three design layouts to choose from — 1,011 sq ft (2+1 bedrooms), 1,248 sq ft (3 bedrooms) and 1,367 sq ft (3+1 bedrooms). The selling price is from RM595,000 or RM588 psf onwards.
“The development is freehold. There is limited freehold land remaining in Puchong for development. It is also a low-density project with only 67 units per acre.
“The low-density nature of Hillcrest Heights offers an exclusive and luxurious feel to the development, without the extravagant luxury property price tag,” Hillcrest Gardens executive director Frank Goon told EdgeProp.my.
He added that the project also boasts a Green Building Index (GBI) Gold rating. “It is not common for developments of this pricing to offer such sustainable features normally only found in higher-end projects.”
Its main design concept features an internal air-well in the tower core to facilitate natural air flow with cross and vertical ventilation. The back areas of each unit (for cooking, drying of clothes and air-conditioning system) will be consolidated at the central core.
“This will help keep the building facade neat and clean, and help the warm air to rise at the central core. The energy from the air-conditioners will help dry clothes and for the bigger units, the use of a heat exchanger air-conditioning system will produce free hot water,” said Goon.
Meanwhile, the project features facilities such as tennis court, swimming pool, badminton hall, fitness centre, yoga deck, barbecue area, herb garden plaza, function room, playground and Jacuzzi.
The project is also equipped with fibre optic broadband telecommunication, centralised satellite master antenna for TV with Astro HD capability, RFID access control, two-way audio intercom and CCTV surveillance system.
Amenities in the area include shopping malls, a RAPID bus transport hub, schools, a hospital and a light rail transit station.
According to previous reports, the project was supposed to be launched by 2016. Commenting on the delay, Goon said the construction of the Rumah SelangorKu at Taman Puchong Utama had taken prority. Besides, the developer had also decided to upgrade the design of Hillcrest Heights to achieve the GBI Gold Certification, which was successfuly obtained in September 2017.
“In view of the postponement, the company took the opportunity to rebrand in line with its emphasis on green buildings. This resulted in the change of the project name from Puchong Heights to Hillcrest Heights,” said Goon.
The project is slated for completion in December 2021.
