Prospective and value-for-money homes anybody can afford to own…
Whenever there is an economic downturn, there is an inevitable slowdown in real estate development as prudent financial investment takes over – in spite of the myriad of options available to consumers in the property market. In this challenging climate, IJM Land shines in its latest residential offering, aptly named PENDULINE – a double-storey link house development at Bandar Rimbayu that is conceptualised to be modern and welcoming, yet offers landed homes at a reasonable price. Renowned as a reputable township, Bandar Rimbayu is typically divided into four precincts – Flora, Fauna, Bayu and a Commercial Hub.
PENDULINE, a term which derives its designation from a little bird inhabiting the territories of Eurasia, Africa & North America, was coined after the FAUNA element and is also the first development within the FAUNA precinct.
Security & Peace of Mind
The PENDULINE homes have been planned as two phases separated by 5.4 acres Central Park and each phase is designed as an exclusive enclave with its own entrance and exit point. This allows future residents, with cooperation from their respective Residents’ Association (RA), to potentially turn PENDULINE homes into a “gated and guarded” community.
With the support of IJM Land, the construction of perimeter fencing and guard house will be subject to RA formation, as well as the approval of relevant authorities. Designed with new young home-owners in mind, the double-storey link homes feature 2’x2’ porcelain tiles for the living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms, including concrete imprints at the car porch. Air-conditioning points are available in the bedrooms and living rooms, while every bathroom features a water heater point.
According to Mr. Shuy Eng Leong, Chief Operating Officer of Bandar Rimbayu Sdn. Bhd., they are able to offer these homes at an attractive and competitive price by going back to basics – incorporating practical design methodology, as well as optimising on buyers’ requirements instead of catering to their desires per se – and inclusive of iterative value engineering processes without compromising on building quality.
Since registration opened last November, PENDULINE has received encouraging response from the general public. 132 units were open for initial launch and with almost 90 percent take-up rate, whilst another 114 units have now been released – of which approximately 50 percent of units are still available and up for grabs. Each of the double-storey link homes is built on a land area of approx. 20’x70’ and comes with designs ranging from a gross built-up area of 1,771 to 2,022 square feet. The selling price starts from RM 644,800, which is a relatively low price per square foot for a landed property as compared to new project launches within the Kota Kemuning area.
A total of 8.4 acres of central park and pocket parks have been allocated, which cater to outdoor activities for all ages, and includes a neighborhood square, a football field, a multi-purpose court, a futsal court, an integrated playground, a walkway/ jogging track and an outdoor gymnasium.
Residents will also be accorded special privilege to join the Rimbayu Club Village that will be featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool, badminton courts, squash courts, gymnasium, dance studio, family karaoke, and much more which are expected to be ready by 2018.
PENDULINE certainly a wise choice for new homeowners as Bandar Rimbayu township is easily connected via five major highways – KESAS, LKSA, SKVE, ELITE and the proposed WCE. In addition, each home in PENDULINE will be equipped with cutting edge ‘fibre-to-home-infrastructure’ (FTTH) for an effortless and hassle-free internet surfing.
Enhancing Community Living
The essence of a close-knit community together with a reassuring neighbourhood is the fundamental key to IJM Land’s quest in its development of Bandar Rimbayu.
With this in mind, IJM Land has been organising a variety of social events and family activities to create a feeling of awareness and togetherness among residents of Bandar Rimbayu. Among the main events were Pets Out Day, Fun Run, Big Fun Day and weekly Zumba classes on every Sunday 8.30am. IJM Land will continuously organise various activities for its residents at Bandar Rimbayu.
The first commercial project in Bandar Rimbayu – BLOSSOM DRIVE, comprising 48 units of 2 & 3 storey shop-lots, is scheduled for completion in 2018. The next up-coming commercial project called BLOSSOM SQUARE consists of 88 units of 2 & 3 storey shop-offices with land areas of 22’ X 70’ and 22’ X 75’ respectively, will be launched in Q2 2016. BLOSSOM SQUARE is now open for registration. The general public may logon to www.rimbayu.com for more info about PENDULINE and BLOSSOM SQUARE.
“This is the product that the market is looking for during the current economic slowdown. With an outstanding value for money proposition, we are sure that PENDULINE homes will entice prospective buyers eyeing either for own stay or investment. There has never been a better opportune time for the young generation to buy as houses in this attractive price range are hard to come by nowadays,” said Edward Chong Sin Kiat, Managing Director, IJM Land Berhad.
