KUALA LUMPUR, 14 March 2016 – Hua Yang Berhad (“Hua Yang” or the “Group”), a leading property developer in the affordable housing market, has launched Tower A of its Citywoods project, offering Johorians the opportunity to live in an urban luxury retreat.
Situated just a stone’s throw away from the city centre, this residential landmark successfully harmonises a fusion of contrasting elements by being close to the city and yet removed from the stresses of city living. Launched in September 2014, the serviced residents which sits on 2.21 acres of freehold land comprises two 19-storey towers with a total of 417 units, each with three design layouts.
Hua Yang’s Johor Branch Manager, Casey Wong shared, “Last year, we released Tower B which has enjoyed a positive take-up rate of approximately 90%. We are now pleased to unveil Tower A which boasts the same contemporary design and unique layout. With only nine units per floor and three lift cars, residents will be able to enjoy unparalleled privacy and low-density living. Citywoods’ location which is close to Singapore is one of its strengths, giving residents the opportunity to take in a breathtaking view of the Singapore skyline and the straits of Johor from their apartments.”
“With an estimated Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM216 million, Citywoods has the highest GDV among the different projects that Hua Yang has in Johor, further reaffirming our position in the Southern region. We believe our strategically located and affordable projects such as Citywoods will address the needs of first time home-owners in the market.”
Well-known as an oasis of green within the city, Tower A of Citywoods comes with three design layouts, namely Type A (two bedrooms) at 764 sq ft (square feet), Type B (two + one bedrooms) at 958 sq ft and Type C (three + one bedrooms) at 1,249 sq ft. A 6-storey car park sits on the lower levels of the tower, and residents of types B and C units will get two parking bays, while type A units will have one parking bay. Prices for these units starts from RM383,000 (Bumi lots) and RM446,000 (non-Bumi Lots) onwards.
A whole range of resort-like facilities with first-rate service will be available to residents. At the heart of the complex is an infinity pool, Jacuzzi, as well as an indoor and outdoor gym. Residents will also have access to a barbecue area, a playground and a residential entertainment zone which comprises a function space, games room, KTV as well as an audio and visual (AV) Room. Citywoods’ concept of green urban living is further exemplified by centralised water filter system which will provide clean water to all units, as well as sky gardens on level 11, 15, 19 and 23.
The development has a high level of security with 24-hour patrols, CCTV surveillance and an advanced single-card access system. Each unit also comes with a video intercom and a digital door lock to fully safeguard occupants. The unique design of the semi-detached units further ensures privacy as each unit is a corner unit with main entrances that do not face each other.
Located along Jalan Abdul Samad behind the five-star Thistle Hotel, Citywoods provides excellent accessibility to major highways including the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) and Coastal Highway, alongside nearby infrastructure amenities including schools, hospitals, shopping enclaves, and various tourist attractions such as Legoland Malaysia, Hello Kitty Town, Angry Birds Theme Park and Puteri Harbour Indoor Theme Park as well as various commercial centres.
