KUALA LUMPUR: A new township is set to be the new green lung in the urban city of Kuala Lumpur. IJM Land Bhd (IJM) in a joint-venture with Amona Development Sdn Bhd (Amona) launched the first phase of its mixed-use Pantai Sentral Park development at the IJM Land Prime Property Investment Showcase held in Symphony Lake Suites, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) yesterday.
The first phase, also known as Inwood Residences will comprise of 211 residential condominium units, with built-ups ranging between 1,140 sq ft and 1,975 sq ft for its two- to four- plus one bedroom units. The residential tower will be 38-storeys tall.
“The Inwood Residences units are priced starting from approximately RM700 per sq ft,” Soam said.
Pantai Sentral Park will be located between Pantai Dalam and Bukit Kerinchi in Kuala Lumpur.
The Inwood Residences project is expected to be completed within three to three-and-a-half years and will be able to accommodate about 15,000 residents.
The development stretches over 58 acres of the 274 acres land area and comes with a total gross development value (GDV) of RM2.5 bil.
Divided into 13 different phases made up of seven residential phases and six commercial phases, Pantai Sentral Park will be a green enclave facing a 200-acre forest complemented by extensive green landscaping features.
“Instead of concrete jungles with trimmed trees, your home and office is surrounded by a forest. There will be lush green enclaves to stroll about in safety,” said IJM Land Bhd chief executive officer and managing director Datuk Soam Heng Choon.
The developer emphasised on the security measures of the development designed in accordance to “crime prevention through environmental design” (CPTED) approach.
“Pantai Sentral Park will be lined with closed-circuit surveillance cameras, adequate street lighting and around-the-clock guard patrols for crime prevention and to give the community a heightened sense of security,” Soam added.
IJM will also give priority to sustainability by incorporating the latest green technologies into their construction.
“The development is designed in accordance to the Green Real Estate (GreenRE) requirements by Real Estate and Housing Developer’s Association (Rehda),” he said.
The landscape will see a 3km interconnected pedestrian access cutting through the development which will also mean fewer vehicles will be on the road, therefore reducing the carbon footprint of the township.
The shallow floor plates used in the development promotes energy savings as large windows not only allow a generous amount of natural lighting into the residences and offices, but also invite natural ventilation into the units.

Each room of every unit, he said, will boast scenic views of the forest and surrounding greenery. There will be seven units dedicated to each floor, with six units per floor as the levels go higher.
Pantai Sentral Park is easily accessible from many different highways including the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), Federal Highway, Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Expressway, and Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2).
“Pantai Sentral Park is also strategically connected to other townships adjacent to Kuala Lumpur to the north-east; Bangsar and Damansara to the north; Petaling Jaya, Subang and Sunway to the west; and Cheras to the south-eastern side,” Soam said in a comment about the development’s amenities.
He added that there are plans to build a ramp to facilitate even greater access to the neighbouring areas and beyond.
The project comes with facilities and amenities such as an infinity swimming pool, Jacuzzi, wading pool, sitting terraces, multi-purpose courts, pool deck, gymnasiums, reading rooms, multipurpose halls, and a barbeque area.
