Project Details

Ayera Residences is the first landed residential project in Tropicana Danga Cove. The 48-acre freehold project offers 577 units of double-storey terrace house across 3 phases – Phase 1, Phase 2A, and Phase 2b, with land plots sizes of 20’ x 70’ and 22’ x 70’. Units were priced from RM586,000, and each will have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The launch price for Phase 2b started from RM602,000, with rebates available within a limited duration.

The interiors of Ayera Residences are designed to optimise the versatility and functionality of space, with each of the 4-bedroom units featuring an additional family hall or loft on the upper floor (with wider options for homeowners to choose from), while the individual pocket gardens provide an ideal outdoor space for relaxation. The pocket garden is beside the living room, and can be transformed into a fish pond, or a garden of your liking. The sunlight from this area will also help to brighten up the living room, and improve air circulation in the house.

There’s double-volume 10ft high ceiling at the dining area, with a window that opens to the pocket garden. Each unit comes with a dry kitchen, and a fully extended wet kitchen, which saves on renovation costs. The 3 bedrooms on the upper floor each come attached with a fully tiled bathroom.

As for landscaping, it relies on geometric shapes and soft lines to convey a minimalist, natural ambience. Amenities within the development include a linear park, jogging tracks, and a playground.

Ayera Residences bagged the Highly Commended award for Best Housing Architectural Design, and won the Best Mid End Landed Development (Southern) category in the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) 2020.

Commenting on the decision, the judges noted that “Ayera Residences is a prime example of how minimalist architecture and landscaping can create light, spacious rooms that are both highly versatile and functional. Tropicana Danga Cove creates 2-storey homes in suburban Johor, knowing what elements count, and excelling in these factors in terms of design and quality.”

Location

Ayera Residences is located strategically between Flagships A and D of Iskandar Malaysia, and this means that the project is surrounded by mature townships such as Bandar Baru Permas Jaya, and Bandar Seri Alam. It is also just about 10 minutes away from Johor Bahru city centre via the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) and JB East Coast Highway. Residents can also get to other parts of Johor Bahru via the Pasir Gudang highway.

Tropicana Danga Cove is one of the state’s most ambitious mixed-use townships. It offers a combination of lifestyle properties, including commercial blocks, a destination shopping mall and of course, residential districts. Plus, the township is a short drive to Singapore, and Senai International Airport. The Causeway Link is about 15 minutes from Ayera Residences.

The community will benefit from a network of sky bridges, parks, waterways, and sidewalks, providing connectivity to and from the commercial, lifestyle and residential zones.

Analysis

Given the recurring imposition of MCO, a recovery of the residential market is likely to be delayed to in 2022. The residential secondary sector is expected to remain the key driver of Johor’s property market, with landed terrace houses being the segment that’ll remain stable, as it had performed well in the past few years.

All things considered, the extension of the Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) to the end of 2021 could stir some market interest. In the event the borders between Johor and Singapore open up once the pandemic is contained, that is also likely to increase sales take-up for housing in Johor.

In April 2021, the developer launched the Tropicana FreeDOM campaign that offers big savings on move-in-ready units. It allows buyers to enjoy zero down payment, up to 50% rebates, 100% financing with Maybank Islamic’s HouzKEY programme, and  free maintenance of up to 10 years.

The campaign is mainly for the developer’s completed projects. Customers can also enjoy 2% referral rewards by introducing the properties to family and friends. The participating projects include Tropicana Danga Cove in Iskandar Malaysia.
