THE Y Cantonments town villas in Cantonment Road, Pulau Tikus, Penang, drew many prospective buyers during the launching of its show unit.
Each high-end five-storey unit comes with a private garden, a private lift and an infinity plunge pool.
The project, comprising 20 prestigious and eco-friendly units, was designed by architect Datuk Dr Ken Yeang, a pioneer of ecology-based green design and master planning.
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, who was present at the launching, voiced his support for Yeang’s green design.
“The Y Cantonments town villas are rated under the Green Building Index because of several aspects like climate response, low energy use, rainwater harvesting, natural daylight, passive solar shading and water saving features.
“The project is in line with the state’s aim to achieve sustainable living.
“Penang is the first green state in Malaysia with the highest recycling rate at 32%,” he said at the opening of the show unit on Saturday.
Dr Yeang said the house was designed to provide ample space for big families as each unit had 5+1 bedrooms.
“The elevator is disabled- friendly as it is big enough for wheelchairs.
“Families can spend quality time having barbecue parties on the rooftop patio,” he said, adding that there were only 12 units left for sale.
Also present at the launch of the show unit was world-renowned shoe designer Prof Datuk Jimmy Choo, who owns unit no. 7 of the project.
Choo said he was looking forward to the completion of the project.
