Mah Sing Group (Mah Sing) organised a Hot Air Balloon Fiesta which provided free rides to hop on a hot air balloon as an innovative way to show the advanced development progress of the Group’s biggest township in the central region at Southville City, Bangi.
Some 3,000 visitors thronged the sales gallery over the 3-day-long weekend (30 April – 2 May) and were treated with delicious refreshments from a variety of food trucks, as well as complimentary caricature and face painting sessions.
Many not only got to enjoy the complimentary hot air balloon rides but also had a chance to have a bird’s eye view of the development progress of the self-sustaining township.
Mah Sing’s Southville City@KL South aspires to create a cohesive master planned township which delivers a conducive and safe environment with convenient accessibility. In keeping with its lush green concept, Mah Sing is only developing 50 per cent of the 428 acres. The remaining land will be left in its natural green with landscaping facilities such as a river boardwalk and jungle trek. The township also aims to draw both multi-generation living and the working community.
Speaking at the event, James Bruyns, Director of Sales and Marketing said “Southville City@KL South is a gated and guarded integrated township which promotes urban lifestyle just outside the city center. In addition to affordable living in an exclusive setting, we also provide vast greenery in our township.”
“Through a cohesive approach in master planning and the size of the township, we have the opportunity to create value adding features. For example, we have innovative landscape designs for a safe and conducive environment for both pedestrians and cyclists. We also have the opportunity to master plan and bring together the right products which will activate both the morning and evening catchment for business sustainability, resulting in an appreciating value for the investment.” said Bruyns.
The entire development has a gross development value (GDV) of RM11.1billion comprising a total of seven phases. In addition, the 10 acres Summit Park will also be completed and ready to be enjoyed by the community moving into Southville City by 2017.
