Project Details

Scale model of Ridgefield Residences

Unlike Parkfield Residences, the homes at Ridgefield Residences are not supported by a pocket park. There are a total of 178 linked townhouses, lined in single rows, at Ridgefield Residences. Exhibiting a modern exterior, these dual frontage homes are either adjacent to a 750-metre lake, face the front façades of houses, or are fringed by a linear garden back lane that stretches up to 80 feet. Having a dual frontage heightens ventilation and sunlight exposure, while providing maximum views.

The pull factor of Ridgefield Residences is its extra privacy due to its low density arrangement, and a larger open space and landscaping. Rooms with attached bathrooms are purpose-built to look and feel spacious and exude comfort. All townhouse units either face a south, east or west orientation.

A Type A3, the 3-storey townhouses occupy a land size of 25’ X 85’. There are 2 different units within this structure – divided into a lower unit, and an upper unit. On the ground floor is the lower unit and on the first floor is the upper unit. The space of the front porch (which can park four cars) takes up some of the space of the lower unit, therefore it has a smaller built-up of 1,993 sq ft. The upper unit has a bigger built-up of 2,446 sq ft.

The only difference between the two units is that the lower unit has a terrace and the upper unit has a balcony. The uppermost floor has 2 balconies, one at the front and another at the back. They also enjoy the benefit of a roof garden.

A Type B1, 4-storey townhouse, sit on a land size of 25’ X 90’. The upper unit commands a larger built-up of 2,419 sq ft. The lower unit has a built up of 2,652 sq ft. The difference between a 4-storey townhouse from a 3-storey one is the addition of a lower ground floor. Taking up approximately one-third of the space, the lower ground floor makes a good family room or guest room.

There is also a Type B2 4-storey townhouse. Commanding the same land size as a Type B1, Type B2 units come with built-ups of 2,419 sq ft (for the upper unit), and 2,653 sq ft (for the lower unit).

Even though Tropicana Heights is gated and guarded with parameter fencing and CCTV surveillance, each Ridgefield Home may have its own fencing too. Each home is also equipped with an alarm system and pre-installed 3-phase wiring.

Accompanying the 178 townhouses at Ridgefield Residences are limited units of 40 lake-fronting and 3-storey, dual frontage, semi-detached homes. Ridgefield Residences is due for a launch in late July, 2016.

About the Development where Ridgefield Residences resides

The former site of the Kajang Hill Golf and Country Club takes on a new lease of life. Known as one of the few remaining golf parcels in Kajang, the land is currently being transformed into Tropicana Heights. The beauty behind this evolving development is that although the properties will be new, the site comes with matured greenery that is as old as the golf club. This means that Tropicana Heights blends into the existing ecosystem. Species of flora and fauna that you may find here include the Raintree, Pulai, Khaya, Yellow Flame, and Tembusu, of which some have been relocated and replanted.

The focal point of the entire development is a 16-acre park. Dubbed as the Central Park, it is sub-divided into several zones. There is a Chill Zone, with a look-out pavilion, Lily pond & willow garden, viewing bridge, cascading waterfall, amphitheatre lawn, and fountain. There’s also West Lake Active Zone, featuring a fitness trail, sports lawn, basketball court, fountain, floating gazebos, children’s playground, sloped lawn, burbling brook, an open field, and Market Square.

Then there is also the Central Zone, with trellis, fountain, community hall, and recreational hub. Next is East Lake Promenade Zone, which offers park lane bays, boardwalk, a 288-metre promenade, viewing bridge, cascading waterfall, fountain, floating gazebos and wooded trail.

Finally is the concrete-paved jogging track, dotted with resting benches along its path, as well as bicycle stations. And bicycle stations would not be complete without bicycles to take you around this well-landscaped and green development would it?

Tropicana Heights is a sprawling landed development spread across 199 acres of land that was formerly a golf course. Neighbouring this development is Semenyih’s Bandar Technology Kajang. Companies located here include Wanpow Plastic Industries Sdn Bhd, French Fries (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, KMK Rubber Manufacturing Sdn Bhd, the largest rubber manufacturing company to be stationed in this area.

Neighbouring developments is a landed project named Hill Park Kajang by MKH Berhad. MKH Berhad is a formidable local developer with a long list of projects in Kajang and has since the very beginning, turned this once secluded town into a habitable residential haven with affordable and stylish homes.

Bandar Technology Kajang, and the land in the vicinity are bounded by several highways. There is the SILK Highway, Cheras-Kajang Highway, Kajang-Seremban Highway, North-South Highway, and South Klang Valley Expressway. These highways have made Kajang and Semenyih very accessible to city-dwellers to set up a second home outside of the city centre of Kuala Lumpur.

The drive between Tropicana Heights and the city centre, via the Cheras-Kajang Highway, is under 40 minutes (in smooth traffic conditions).

The surrounding residential districts are Semenyih, Bandar Baru Bangi, Cheras, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Serdang, Seri Kembangan, and Bukit Jalil. The nearest educational institutions include Rafflesia International School, Nottingham University, and German Malaysian Institute.

One of these stations is located at the KTM Commuter station and will also serve as an interchange station. The third is located in an established township called Saujana Impian. This station is called Sungai Kantan.

Under construction in the vicinity is a flyover to Persiaran Bangi. The expected completion date is in 2017. A second infrastructure improvement is also taking place near the development, which involves a bridge upgrade into 4 lanes connecting to Jalan Bandar Teknologi. This is expected to be done in 2017.

Summary

Kajang has been developing and changing in the past 30 years. This town is well-suited for people with large extended 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 to upkeep the external facade of the homes and maintain the surrounding landscapes and look. Therefore, if you love the concept of living in a gated and guarded development whilst holding a strata title, and long to belong to a tight-knit community, then Tropicana Heights is the place for you.
