Launched in mid-2016, Cheria Residences is phase 3 of a landed property development in the heart of Tropicana Aman, a township spanning 863 acres adjacent to Kota Kemuning.
Gamuda Land, the master developer of Kota Kemuning, initially acquired the 1,800 acres of former palm oil estate in 1995 and has since transformed it into one of its award-winning townships in Malaysia. The accessibility to Kota Kemuning was further enhanced with the construction of Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) by Gamuda in 1996.
Today, Kota Kemuning has flourished into a self-sufficient integrated township that is defined by great landscapes fringed with lush greenery. Pathways and open spaces are what make its neighbourhoods pedestrian-friendly.
One of the malls in Kota Kemuning is Gamuda Walk, the first neighbourhood mall ever built. The Kota Kemuning Wetland Park was built not merely for aesthetic or entertainment purposes but has a secondary function as a flood management solution during thunderstorms.
Commanding a gross development value (GDV) of RM358 million, Tropicana Aman is a sprawling development with both landed and commercial properties. Taking up 38.5 acres, gated and guarded Cheria Residences will feature 272 double-storey semi-detached homes, which are sub-divided into 2 types.
These semi-detached homes also come with 2 differing layouts – a choice of single or dual frontage ranging from 3,200.35 sq ft (Type B) to 3,670.41 sq ft (Type A). There is Type A, which sits on a lot size of 40’ X 85’, and Type B which occupies lots of 38’ X 80’.
The orientation of Type A and Type B is slightly different in that Type B homes are aligned next to back lanes which are modified into 10 ft to 35 ft wide linear parks. Type A, on the other hand, are located nearer to the communal spaces at the centre of Cheria Residences – consisting of a community centre, kickabout lawn, reflexology path, parcourse, children’s playground, visitor’s carpark, and feature gazebo.
The density of Cheria Residences is 7 units per acre. Cheria Residences is situated next to Tenby International School. Equipped with facilities and international oriented programmes for pre-school, primary and secondary, the school’s first intake is in September 2018. The school can accommodate up to 1,800 students.
The Type As are double-storey semi-detached homes with 4 + 1 bedrooms, a study, and 5 + 1 bathrooms. The front porch can park up to 3 cars. The Type Bs are double-storey semi-detached units with 4 +1 bedrooms and 5 + 1 bathrooms, excluding the study.
What makes Cheria Residences’ semi-detached units one-of-its-kind is its internal ventilation (where one of its function is heat insulation in the ceiling), and home network and security system (using motion sensors, cameras and video intercom) devised under Panasonic Homes and Living. This in-house air circulation system is PureTech Technology from Japan.
This is made possible by a partnership between Tropicana Corporation Berhad and PanaHome Malaysia Sdn Bhd. As a subsidiary of Panasonic Corporation, PanaHome has already built 470,000 homes in Japan.
Parks, lakes, water. This is pretty much the essence of Kota Kemuning which was invented by Gamuda Land, a well-known wholesome master planner. Gamuda Land has successfully expanded to Singapore, Vietnam and Australia, with properties encompassing residential, retail and commercial.
Notable landmarks and amenities in close proximity to Kota Kemuning is the Kuala Lumpur Chinese Taipei School in Bukit Rimau Seksyen 32 in Shah Alam. This is a Taiwanese international boarding school for primary and secondary levels. The school also comes with dormitory facilities. The language of instruction are Mandarin and English.
Then there’s also Kota Permai Golf and Country Club and Bukit Kemuning Golf and Country Resort, regional hospital Columbia Asia Hospital, and AEON Big Hypermarket.
Gamuda Walk at Persiaran Anggerik Vanilla is an excellent place to chill out with friends as there are a lot of dining options there. There is also a Mr. DIY and AEON MaxValue, along with a Jaya Grocer and Village Grocer nearby.
Stretched over 1,800 acres of land approximately 42 kilometres south-west of Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kemuning is accessible via several major highways such as Lebuhraya Shah Alam (KESAS), Expressway Lingkaran Tengah (ELITE), and the proposed West Coast Expressway (WCE) – which will link Banting directly to Taiping.
According to www.wce.com.my, WCE spans 233 kilometres. Along this stretch, there will be a total of 20 toll plazas and 21 interchanges. WCE is connected to PLUS, SKVE, NKVE, NNKSB, LATAR, and KESAS. This large-scale infrastructural project costs RM5 billion, and is estimated to be ready in 2019.

The thriving and fast gaining in popularity Kota Kemuning has been developing and transforming swiftly since 1995. This well-planned master township is well-suited for people with large families who are looking to purchase a home for their own use.
Homes under strata title tend to share similar designs. The general difference between holding a landed strata title and a landed individual title is that homes under a strata title is managed by a joint management body that is responsible for upkeeping the external facade of the homes and maintaining the surrounding landscapes and look.
Therefore, if you love the concept of living in a gated and guarded enclave within a biking and walking community, and long to belong to a tight-knit community, then Cheria Residences at Tropicana Aman, which is just right next door, is worth considering.
