GAMUDA Bhd’s property development arm of Gamuda Land expected to complete The Amber Residences by March next year. 

Its CEO Ngan Chee Meng said the high-rise project built using Gamuda’s digital Industrialised Building System (IBS) currently has received 70% of take-up rate. 

The project is developed in its township twentyfive.7 in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. 

“We feel very proud because we provide an end-to-end solution, centred on our IBS factory in Banting. 

“Why we did digital is based on the building information modelling which enables the team to design, customise, share and produce a wide range of precast pro- ducts according to the customer specification in half the time and the superior quality,” he said during his speech. 

More importantly, the usage of this technology minimises waste to only 1% which shows their commitment to innovation and construction excellence under the Gamuda Green Plan 2025. 

“The 100% IBS adoption across all our developments is key to part of this Gamuda Green Plan. 

“It was launched in June, this year’s World Environment Day and we have committed in five years’ time to reduce carbon emission by about 40%,” Ngan said who is confident that this technology is the key to creating greener buildings. 

One can view the vibrancy of twentyfive.7 from the top of Amber Residences which Ngan believes serves as the heartbeat of the projects within the vicinity, which includes Quayside Mall and the 2.8ha pet-friendly Quayside. 

The apartment was launched back in May 2019 and it caters to young families and working professionals. 

It consists of two residential towers with a total of 596 units while the service apartments consist of air-conditioners and fully-fitted kitchens. 

There is a retail podium comprising 34 double-storey shop lots below which sells essentials and conveniences such as grocers and hardware operators. 

“At Gamuda Land, we mindfully masterplan our townships to put everything within easy reach, encompassing the home place, the workplace, the shopping place, the park place and more, because we believe that when we get the places right, the town works. 

“This is seen in Amber Residences, not just in its retail podium but with key recreational and commercial components such as the Buzz.ar and Quayside Mall within a 10-minute walk,” Ngan explained. 

Moreover, the township also features Buzz.ar which is a community hangout place which has bicycle rental services, pet grooming services and more. 

The area also offers different areas of the township’s central lake and Aurira Rhythms water screen projection show through restaurants. 

The Loop which connects the Buzz.ar and Quayside Mall to twentyfive.7’s residential space is a 7km network of pet and wheelchair-friendly walkways designed to foster sustainable mobility throughout the township. 

At the same time, this network aims to reduce the carbon footprints in the township. 

Gamuda Land is also planning to build “Levane Residences” which are Nordic-inspired double-storey linked homes as well as Carousel and Waterfront Superfly. 

“In addition to our commercial components and placemaking efforts, we will continue delivering value to our homeowners and residents through beautification exercises for grand entrance and landscaping areas in residential precincts like Luxura and Lucent Residence, towards positioning twentyfive.7 as the Epitome of Luxury for home seekers in the Klang Valley,” said Ngan. 

Since October last year, almost 170 units of Lucent Residence have been handed over while the first phase of Luxura is expected to be handed over by the middle of next year. 

Comprising 104ha of land, twentyfive.7 is Gamuda Land’s first township development in Malaysia built in 1995. 

It is strategically connected to major routes such as the Kemuning- Shah Alam Expressway, North-South Expressway Central Link, the South Klang Valley Expressway, Shah Alam Expressway and the West Coast Expressway.
