At this point in time, there is still strong demand for landed properties

GLOMAC Bhd will launch 120 units of double-storey terrace houses under its Dahlia Sari project in Saujana Perdana on Feb 10.

Its COO (operations) Zulkifly Garib said there is still strong demand for landed properties.

“At this point in time, the market is still skewed towards landed houses that are between the price of RM500,000 and RM600,000, and mostly are double-storey terraces.

“The response for this bread-and-butter housing has been quite good,” he said in a virtual press conference yesterday.

Dahlia Sari offers units with four bedrooms and three bathrooms within a built-up area of 1,815 sq ft for intermediate units up to 2,175 sq ft for corner houses. The land area is 22×75 sq ft.

The price starts from RM528,000 for an intermediate unit, with targeted completion by the first quarter of 2023 (1Q23).

Dahlia Sari has a gross development value (GDV) of RM80.2 million. Zulkifly said Dahlia Sari aims to offer a family home as it is designed to be flexible with a larger guest room and seamless layout concept from the living area up to the kitchen.

Zulkifly said Dahlia Sari offers ample space for families to accommodate the new working conditions from home that may stay in the future.

Dahlia Sari is a part of the 200 acres (80.94ha) Saujana Perdana development which will consist of 2,018 residential units and commercial properties on completion.

Saujana Perdana annexes Bandar Saujana Utama and both developments have residential homes of 20’x60’, 20’x70’ and 22’x75’ terrace houses, and townhouses with a land area of 24’x60’.

Both Saujana Perdana and Bandar Saujana Utama currently have occupancies of more than 93% and are expected to reach a population of 55,000 by the end of this year.

Dahlia Sari offers numerous amenities within its proximity such as schools, places of worship, healthcare facilities and convenience stores, as well as parks and open spaces to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

It can be accessed via Persiaran Mokhtar Dahari, Guthrie Corridor Expressway, Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway, New Klang Valley Expressway and Damansara-Shah Alam Highway.

To date, Glomac has launched a total of 1,240 units of double-storey terrace homes in Saujana Perdana with a total GDV of RM700 million.

Zulkifly said the HappyNest digital campaign launched in November last year had successfully attracted investors to purchase properties from Glomac, following the highly successful take-up of Mawar Sari and Tresna Triandra, both of which were launched during the pandemic.

Mawar Sari, which was launched in October last year and offers 120 units, has a 95% take-up rate to date.

Zulkifly said Dahlia Sari will be the last of the “Sari” development series as well as the final batch of landed houses that the group has in Saujana Perdana.

“Within Saujana Utama, we still have 65 acres of land but we have yet to name the enclave. Hopefully we can launch it by the end of 2021.

“We still need to do some construction work on that area which will be for landed housing as well. It will be slightly different in terms of concept compared to what we have done in the past within Bandar Saujana Utama,” he said.

Zulkifly said Glomac is also anticipating the launch of another “bread-and-butter housing” called Saujana KLIA which will take place before the end of this month.

“Our financial year ends on April 30, so we are in the middle of doing business plans for the next financial year which will begin in May.

“There will be other launches but we are still cautious about it due to the pandemic,” he added.
