The look and feel of Malaysian homes are changing. With up to 53% of Malaysians on the lookout to invest in property that matches their lifestyles, property developers in Malaysia need to continuously strive to differentiate themselves to succeed.
One such differentiation is the mushrooming of townships that have seen a resurgence of popularity in the Klang Valley. Due to the decline in land availability as well as increasing cost in urban areas, Malaysians are now looking toward developments in greater parts of the city centre that come with the complete set of infrastructures and amenities.
Country Garden Diamond City is Malaysia's very first Spanish-style inspired villa township with a total of 450 Spanish-style units sprawled across 257 acres. It offers residential solutions for every type of family - whether working couples, young families, or retirees - fully equipped with amenities that cater to a holistic way of life.
"Self-contained townships like Country Garden Diamond City are able to provide a slew of facilities that cater to the needs of residents with quality-of-life amenities encompassing residences, commercial, recreational, healthcare, and educational aspects. There is little need for residents to travel far to access any of these amenities," said Sam Cheng, General Manager of Country Garden Diamond City.
Besides being the first Spanish-themed villa township in Malaysia, Country Garden Diamond City greatly emphasises on the 'liveability' aspect of residents' lives. "And that is why we have chosen to build in Semenyih as it has the potential for a holistic living - close to nature, easily accessible via various highways surrounding the township, and is able to cater to multigenerational living. It is slated to be the next emerging residential hotspot," Sam continued.
Homeowners now have very different needs compared to a few years ago. Their expectations of what needs to be packaged in a township have grown significantly as they desire certain kinds of lifestyles.
With the opportunity to work remotely and flexibly, homeowners are now more willing to work farther away from the city centre as they can get connected anywhere, anytime. This is a huge pull factor for a township like Country Garden Diamond City as it fosters this desired lifestyle of our buyers.
In terms of convenience, the strategically planned township boasts a 57,000 sq. ft. Spanish-themed clubhouse that has all the amenities that residents need. From a private cinema, bowling alleys, badminton courts, basketball courts, squash courts, gymnasium, spa room, and one of the biggest infinity pools this side of the Klang Valley, Country Garden Diamond City is truly a self-sustained township that is well-planned for sustainability.
Developing future townships of Malaysia
A core pillar of the Country Garden Diamond City township is to enrich the quality of life and well-being of the communities who reside there. It aims to present immediate solutions to homeowners covering everything from lifestyle amenities, healthcare, recreational activities, and educational hubs.
Country Garden Diamond City has had a successful occupancy rate of about 60% since its launch in 2016. At a Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM1.8 billion, such success demonstrates the demand for similar townships that is able to cater to future homeowners, something which Country Garden may look into incorporating for its future developments.
