RAWANG: Developer Amalan Setar Sdn Bhd has moved forward the launch of the third and fourth phases of Alamanda Parklands to early November, due to the overwhelming response to the first and second phase launches in February this year. The latest phases were initially planned for launch next year.
Alamanda Parklands is a 67-acre freehold landed housing project in Rawang, Selangor. Located between Rawang town and Serendah, the 9-phase development has a gross development value of RM410 million.
Amalan Setar’s director of operations Charles Gopal told EdgeProp.my that the third and fourth phases consist of 165 double-storey terraced houses with a land size of 20ft by 60ft which are priced from RM391,000.
“We have to open up our third and fourth phases early because the response was so good when we first launched the first and second phases. All 234 units of the first phase were fully sold within a short period after the official launch in February,” Charles noted.
The first phase comprised 234 units of double-storey terraced homes with land sizes ranging from 16ft by 55ft to 18ft by 70ft and priced from RM313,020. The second phase offered 126 single-storey homes with a land size of 20ft by 60ft which are priced at RM299,800 onward.
“There were about 3,000 people who turned up at the February launch. We were running out of products and had to open up the second phase which we had planned to launch later,” said Charles.
He attributed the overwhelming responses to the “right product with the right pricing” in an area where people are waiting for new yet affordably priced homes.
“We are not the only development in the vicinity but we are probably the only one to offer double-storey houses at below RM400,000.”
Most buyers were locals or from the surrounding areas, although there were some from Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, said Charles.
The first and second phases will be completed by the second half of 2019.
“The remaining five phases will be double-storey terraced houses and some semi-dees, as well as some shoplots,” said Charles, adding that the entire project should be completed within five to six years.
“We have done so many large-scale landed property projects and have never had one single overhang unit. It is because we listen to the market and design our products according to the needs of the market.
“While keeping the Alamanda Parklands house prices at below RM400,000, we do not compromise on the design and building quality. We design from the buyer’s perspective such as the fully extended kitchen space to save on renovation cost and no balcony so the master bedroom can be spacious,” Charles said.
The developer is confident the upcoming launch will be successful as many buyers are eager to secure a unit even before the launch.
Homes in Alamanda Parklands are individually titled but the development will feature three parks with a total size of 5.63 acres as well as a recreational lake measuring 3.4 acres. Nearby amenities include hypermarket, restaurants and schools.
Alamanda Parklands is 5 to 10 minutes away from the New Klang Valley Expressway’s (NKVE) Sungai Buaya exit. It is also accessible via the newly completed toll-free Templer-Rawang Bypass.
“UMW & Rolls Royce Aerospace are neighbours to Alamanda Parklands. They were instructed by the local authority to build a wider direct access road from the plant to the Sungai Buaya interchange of the NKVE. Our project’s residents will benefit from the direct access road,” Charles noted.
