PROPERTY developer SP Setia received two silver wins at the MIP Planning Excellence Awards (MIPPEA) 2022.
The Setia AlamImpian township development in Shah Alam garnered silver in the Design Excellence Awards (Large Scale Category) while Setia Bayuemas Lake Park in Klang also took the silver in the Placemaking and Public Space Awards (Private Sector Category).
SP Setia executive vice-president for Setia AlamImpian Datuk Zaini Yusoff and SP Setia executive vice-president for Setia Bayuemas Lake Park Datuk Yusilna Mohd Yunus were present to receive the awards at the ceremony held in The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
“With our community’s well-being in mind, we planned Setia AlamImpian to be a self-sustaining township where residents from all walks of life have access to amenities they need in one place,” said Zaini.
“With the LakePoint Central in Setia AlamImpian targeted to open this year, we are excited to bring more offerings including a retail centre, clubhouse and our new Welcome Centre.”
He said the company strived to complement its developments and enhance residents’ lifestyles with features that create a sense of community.
Yusilna added: “Since its opening, Setia Bayuemas Lake Park has become a place not only for exercising but also a conducive outdoor destination where families get to spend their recreational time together.”
Organised by the Malaysian Institute of Planners, MIPPEA acknowledges work and projects that contribute to transforming cities, spaces, communities and the environment.
The Design Excellence Awards (Large Scale Category) recognises projects that are master-planned with a holistic approach to urban planning and create positive influence on the physical built and natural environment by creating liveable places and contributing towards delivering the agenda for sustainable development.
The Placemaking and Public Space Awards honour projects that demonstrate significant improvement on its surrounding physical or environmental quality, contributing greatly to the economic and social well-being of its community.
Setia AlamImpian sits on 499.7ha of freehold land in Section 35 of Shah Alam, Selangor.
The self-sustaining township offers a mix of residential and commercial properties, supplemented by amenities that include Eaton International School, restaurants, grocers, a hospital and warehouses.
Measuring at four hectares within the Setia Bayuemas township, Setia Bayuemas Lake Park is sustainably designed to protect biodiversity by becoming an ideal habitat for birds and local fish species, while acting as a drainage system during downpours.
