SKYWORLD Development Group is embarking on a journey towards greater growth and expansion.
The group has come a long way since completing its first residence, Ascenda Residences, in 2017, as it aims to be the best city developer through the creation of sky abodes that encase the ultimate sky living experience for homeowners.
“SkyWorld strongly believes that digitisation is the way forward. In line with the consistent innovativeness of the company, we have led the industry and launched Malaysia’s first online unit selection platform dubbed ‘Click-to-Own’,” it said.
The platform was launched during the unveiling of SkyAwani 5 Residence, the group’s fifth affordable development that resulted in a 95% booking rate on the same day that it was unveiled to the public.
SkyWorld’s marketing plans have included an increase in interactions online, catalysed successfully by its Facebook page as well as the SkyWorld Connects application that effectively engages and exchanges customers thoughts and updates, providing quick assistance within a platform that can be used regardless of time and place.
“Due to SkyWorld’s persistence, we had outperformed in company sales during the initial Movement Control Order period.
“This came as a surprise to us as the spike in sales had stemmed from Gen-Y home buyers that are receptive to buying homes online due to the exceptional reputation of SkyWorld’s strong brand name, synonymous with QLASSIC certification,” it noted.
QLASSIC or Quality Assessment System in Construction is an independent method to assess and evaluate primarily the quality of workmanship of building projects based on the Construction Industry Standard (CIS).
As of now, SkyWorld has completed five distinctive developments since its conception namely: Ascenda Residences @ SkyArena Setapak, SkyAwani Residence in Sentul, Bennington Residences @ SkyArena Setapak and more recently, SkyAwani 2 Residences @ Off Jalan Ipoh and SkyLuxe On The Park @ Bukit Jalil.
Correspondingly, SkyWorld has also received commendable QLASSIC accreditations with a score of 85% for SkyLuxe On The Park Residence, the highest score in the “High-rise Residential” Category in Malaysia and a 79% score for SkyAwani 2, the highest score rating within the Residensi Wilayah category in the country.
Due to its diligence in the production of outstanding homes and creating a conducive work culture, SkyWorld has garnered over 40 corporate and industry awards.
This includes Best Profit Growth, two-time winner of Best Overall Champion in All-Star Awards and the WOW Award in the public building category for Arena Sports KL in Setapak during the StarProperty Awards 2020.
The group is also a three-time Best Employer in Malaysia by Kincentric and the Bronze winner of EdgeProp Malaysia’s Best Managed & Sustainable Property Award for Ascenda Residences.
“These acknowledgements are our promise to introduce better standards in construction quality to enhance the lives of our clientele, which is truly the heart and soul of our development planning.
“They also echo the hard work and dedication of the SkyWorld team that has enabled several remarkable milestones, strategically positioning the company for greater growth in the forthcoming years ahead,” it said.
SkyWorld added that it will continuously strive to maintain its position crafting ultimate sky living experiences within sustainable environments.
