IJM Land's Riana South Scales the Height for Tropical Living

There is something undeniably exciting when buying your own home. You will begin to consider the location and how accessible the area is. What if the location made it easier for you to commute? What if it had all the amenities that you've ever wanted in a house? Even better, what if it was rubbing shoulders with a forest? If you had all of these things ticked in a box, how would you feel? Riana South wants to know.

Riana South is IJM Land's latest condominium development, which is situated right next to the majestic Sungai Besi Forest Reserve. Here, the two condominium towers and podium are carefully positioned along the slopes, so that the complex integrates with nature, rather than encroach upon it. On top of being side to side with a forest reserve, the condominium is just in front of UCSI University making it perfect for young families and students alike.

Due to the condominium being very close to UCSI University, it boasts a good rental return with more than 10,000 students in search of a place close to their university. The full-fledged facilities of the building include a futsal court, basketball court, a gym and an Olympic-sized pool all made for the convenience of their residents. With a low density of 536 units only, homeowners can also enjoy up to two parking lots with each unit.

In line with this sustainable sensibility, these individual condominiums are designed as habitats, which is symbolic of their natural surroundings. This is apparent in the 536 units at Riana South, each covering a floor area ranging from 947 square feet to 1,238 square feet. Priced from RM665,000, the 3 + 1 bedroom units are ideal for upwardly mobile young couples. The units are styled with a heavy reliance on natural materials and colours, and the scheme effortlessly flows from room to room, creating a welcoming ambience.

Upon entering the show unit foyer, you are greeted by a spacious family area; the kitchen, dining and living rooms are aligned to maximise the use of space. A small yard, as well as a utility room, is located off the sides of the kitchen which provides options to suit individual arrangements. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, as well as the second and third bedroom with their shared bathrooms, is set away from the main entertainment spaces, accessible only through a corridor, to provide a sense of privacy for the unit's occupants.

According to Dato' Hoo Kim See, Senior General Manager (Central Region) of IJM Land, "When IJM Land envisioned this development, we were determined to honour the natural paradise around Riana South. The contemporary and modern design throughout the unit is complemented by the natural light that floods in through the large picture windows. This essence of tropical chic is then magnified by the verdant views of the surroundings. With an expected the completion year of 2021, Riana South is a much sought after, low density, guarded development which truly embodies its natural surroundings. But it is the additional thoughtful touches that make this an outstanding development and these include a rainwater harvesting system, a high definition SMATV provided to all units and Gen-set power supply for emergency systems.”

He then continued, "This will be a habitat that gathers the varied and individual lifestyles of our occupants into communal spaces punctuated with pavilions and verandas. This narrative has proven to be very favourable by the people as more than 70% of our units have now been sold. We look forward to having more families and students join our community as we are determined to fulfil their homely needs.”

Located at Taman Connaught and adjacent to Alam Damai, Bukit Manda'rina is a mere 12km to Kuala Lumpur and 13km to Petaling Jaya and is easily accessible from East West Link (Connaught Highway), Cheras-Kajang Highway and the Middle Ring Road II (MRR II). Riana South is surrounded by the full gamut of established infrastructure including the national type and international schools, local and private universities, malls and hypermarkets, government and private hospitals and is a short hop away from Terminal Bersepadu Selatan. This Integrated Transport Terminal is equipped with electronic information display boards and various modes of transportation in one location, such as the LRT, KTM Commuter, KLIA Transit, bus and taxi services.

Evidently, Riana South is inspired by style and individuality and incorporates a versatile and modern design. The residence is ideal for families and professionals, which merges the convenience of an active lifestyle and the space for relaxing recreational activities. The development allows the residents to enjoy the nature's tender embrace and luxuriate in the best of urban lifestyles. Due to this, the development has thus far received an overwhelming response from the public because of its unique offerings and accessibility. The ideation and planning behind the development have been done so that the comfort and convenience of the residents are ensured by all means.

On the 18th of August, Riana South will be organising an official launch event of its development. From 2 pm to 4 pm, members of the public are encouraged to visit Riana South Sales Gallery to enjoy a durian-filled weekend! With food trucks surrounding the area, you are bound to have your hunger replenished with the many options available. The best part is, all proceedings will be donated to selected orphanage houses in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
