THE TWO, which would have the largest international indoor theme park in South-East Asia, with outdoor and indoor swimming pools, as well as the largest mall in Malaysia is set to be a tourist hub when it is completed.
This new lifestyle project, which sits on a 20.4ha piece of land, is an ambitious project by developer DA Land.
Located within a few kilometres of Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur, The Two is expected to be the new hub for tourists and shoppers alike.
The development comprises two phases – Phase 1A and 1B.
Phase 1A is the heart of the shopping mall with a focus on entertainment, dining and shopping through integrated developments such as the outlet mall and indoor and outdoor theme parks.
The outdoor, semi-outdoor and indoor theme parks with exhilarating water rides and adventure sports form the Theme Park Resort.
Meanwhile, Phase 1B boasts a hotel, serviced residences and a showroom office. Unlike other shopping complexes that are primarily directed to the surrounding neighbourhood area, The Two welcomes residents and non-residents with its easy accessibility.
Located beside the North-South Expressway, The Two aims to be the pitstop for local and international tourists travelling along the highway.
Furthermore, residents of surrounding neighbourhoods can drive up to the nearby Rawang toll, which is only 15 to 20 minutes away from the Duta toll, the Damansara toll and the Bukit Jelutong toll.
The theme parks are designed by the Sanderson Group, which has worked on parks such as Disneyland in Tokyo, Japan; Warner Brothers’ Movie World on the Gold Coast, Australia; and Universal Studios in Sentosa Island, Singapore.
The 600,000sq ft indoor theme park will be the largest in Asia when the project is completed.
The project will be constructed in four phases over eight to 10 years. The first phase (GDV: RM2bil) comprises a mall, indoor and outdoor theme parks and hotels. It will take approximately four years to complete.
The Two’s integrated commercial development was officially launched by Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz in a ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.
Mohamed Nazri was quoted as saying that the RM5bil theme park, wholesale city and outlet mall was the only integrated lifestyle project in Selangor that met stringent Economic Transformation Programme application processes.
DA Land chairman Tan Sri Mohd Radzi Sheikh Ahmad and chief executive officer Derek Chew said the company had been selected to be involved in the ambitious plan.
On the DA land website, there were more than 30 news reports on the project.
A visit by StarMetro to the site in Rawang saw land at the proposed area being cleared for development.
However, the developer was unable to be reached for comments.
Meanwhile, Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) Town Planning and Development Department officer Ahmad Faizal Roslan said approval for the project was at its final stage as only a few more documents were needed from the developer.
“The main document is an undertaking letter. We in the council are also excited about this project that could transform Rawang.
“We are in the process of giving the Development Order for this project if all the requirements are met.
“This project would definitely benefit MPS in terms of income and Rawang, as a town, boosting the tourism industry here,” he said.
The Two sales gallery is located at Pelangi Sentral, Pelangi Damansara, PJU6, Persiaran Surian in Petaling Jaya.
