A HOME that encapsulates the best of both worlds.
Imagine waking up to the natural sounds of a forest and enjoying the fresh air that comes with it, and still able to zip across town for work.
For property developer Medan Damai Sdn Bhd – better known as Mahajaya – building dream homes in a mature town next to the lush greenery of Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve in Selangor further cements its mission to serve the community with its unique brand of sustainable living.
“118 Residence is nestled in the heart of Kinrara in Puchong, ” says Mahajaya project and property director Henry Tan.
“With Puchong already being a mature township, there are ample amenities, malls, restaurants and recreational facilities surrounding the development.
“Situated strategically in the Klang Valley, this vibrant township has excellent connectivity, easy accessibility to major highways and close proximity to LRT Stations and public transport.”
Third generation developer
With a proven track record of 20 signature development projects like office buildings, commercial hubs and residential neighbourhoods, Mahajaya aims to make good on its philosophy “to always put innovation, quality and people first”.
Since its establishment in the 1970s, the company spans three generations with Tan now leading the charge.
Initially, Tan’s grandfather Datuk Tan Leong Min’s primary focus as founder was on earthworks, civil engineering and building contractors.
With notable townships like Taman Desa Petaling and Bandar Damai Perdana in Cheras, Tan said, the company has transformed into a well-diversified group involved in various aspects of property development, construction, trading, manufacturing and commercial leasing.
“My grandfather believed that one deserves a roof over one’s head. With his expertise in the construction sector, he was able to build affordable housing for all walks of life.
“Our team is honoured to continue his legacy and we serve with our core values which are people, innovation and quality, ” says Tan.
Mahajaya currently extols sustainable lifestyle projects which incorporate stylish modern buildings with solid practicality.
“We take effort to incorporate practical layout solutions in our floor planning to efficiently maximise space utilisation and purpose.
“Furthermore, the units are meticulously planned to allow sufficient ventilation and natural lighting throughout the entire house, ” he says.
Prosper every day
Mahajaya has long kept to its mission to build quality community-centric developments that will stand the test of time for future generations and it continues to embrace this vision wholeheartedly.
In building a low-density, guarded community like 118 Residence, Tan says it is for “growing families who are currently living in a high rise and are looking to upgrade to a landed property, or multi-generational families who want to live under the same roof or neighbouring each other.
“A home where every conceivable convenience and amenities is around you to grow and nurture through your life experiences with loved ones.”
Meanwhile, prosperity is already in the name of this residential area with a gross development value (GDV) of RM118mil.
“The 118 Residence name was given due to the total number of units of the development.
“The name was taken given its auspicious meaning which when translated directly from Chinese means ‘prosper every day’, ” says Tan.
With a built-up area that starts at 2,251sq ft featuring high ceilings of 11ft (3.4m), these double-storey terrace units have been designed to capitalise on maximising natural light and the breathtaking view of the forest.
“Located just beside the Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve, there is ample fresh air and eye-catching greenery by your doorstep, ” says Tan.
“A high ceiling will give a better sense of a grander and brighter room in which it does not feel cramped.
“In warmer climates like ours, it’s easier to cool homes with higher ceilings – making the house more energy efficient.”
With the standard lot size of 22ft x 75ft, the units also have a sky-light feature which “allows for natural lighting through the stairway area and gives a sense of a brightly-lit and welcoming atmosphere.”
And the houses come with ample space for multi-generational families, contemporary fittings and stylishly crafted interiors which are adaptable to the lifestyle and needs of individual families.
Access to mature township
The use of landscape furnishings – like tree-lined pedestrian walkways, garden parks and a delightful kids playground – are other welcomed features.
Mahajaya’s planning – which prioritises residences and parks, abundance of green spaces as well as commercial amenities – is certainly a plus for buyers and prospective buyers.
118 Residence residence is just some 5km away from shopping malls, hypermart and will see the new addition of Pavilion Bukit Jalil opening its doors this year.
It is also close to international schools and tertiary education institutions, medical centres and the Serdang police district headquarters.
For those who want to lead an active lifestyle, it is also close to the 18-hole Kinrara Golf Club and Kinrara Academy Oval that has hosted some international cricket matches.
It is also strategically situated with easy accessibility to major highways and in close proximity to LRT stations and public transport, which makes the pulsing heart of Kuala Lumpur a mere 20km away.
118 Residence is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2023. Mahajaya’s 118 Residence sales gallery will be open in June. Interested buyers are encouraged to make an appointment via 03-8082 3118 or 012-399 5513 before visiting the gallery.
