PETALING JAYA: IJM Land Bhd is set to officially launch a trio of property projects worth RM355 million in the heart of Seremban next month.
Properties in the three projects, namely Saujana Duta, Kalista Residence and Seri Binjai, will be offered for sale on October 5, 13 and 23 respectively.
IJM Land general manager for central region, Hoo Kim See, expects an encouraging take-up rate for the projects.
"As land in Kuala Lumpur is getting scarce, urban housebuyers are now shifting their attention to the outskirts, such as Seremban, which is only an hour's drive from the city centre," said Hoo.
Ideally nestled at the peak of S2 Heights, approximately 122 meters above sea level, Saujana Duta Phase 1 comprises 200 units of three-storey semi-detached units (Semi-Ds) and bungalows. It offers owners a spectacular and picturesque view of Seremban 2.
S2 Heights, which is next to Seremban 2, comprises 600ha of freehold land and will offer development opportunities for IJM Land in the next eight to 10 years.
"Another unique selling point of Saujana Duta is that it is adjacent to a 12ha recreational hill park," he said, adding that the projects have secured 50 per cent of sales during the soft launch recently.
He expects another 10 Semi-Ds to be taken up during the launch. The property prices range from RM1.5 million to RM3.3 million for a Semi-D unit and bungalow respectively, with a built-up area of between 4,038 to 7,060 sq ft.
Meanwhile, Kalista Residence Phase 1 is the first gated and guarded high-rise development in Seremban 2 township. It comprises 208 units of modern apartments and comes with condominium facilities.
Kalista units have built-up areas starting from 914sq ft, priced from RM250 per sq ft.
"All units come with one or two covered car parks depending on unit size and floor level."
In the middle-end landed property range, IJM plans to launch RM95 million Seri Binjai Phase 1 on a piece of 23.2ha freehold land at Rahang. It comprises 120 units double- storey link houses with built-up areas ranging from 2,132sq ft to 2,607sq ft, as well as 38 units of double storey Semi-Ds. The Seri Binjai properties are priced from RM200 per sq ft.
These projects will take approximately two to three years to complete.
