Green Residence, Cheras

Image source:

The Green Residence in Cheras is a low density condominium with 596 units spread over nearly ten acres of freehold land. Built by Binastra (The Reach @Titiwangsa, The Park @Bukit Serdang, Cybersquare @Cyberjaya), this new residential property offers sizes ranging from 1,127 sq ft to 1,557 sq ft.

The facilities are not of the typical run-of-the-mill Cheras apartment; it boasts of a spacious green area with more than 7,000 sq ft of aromatic gardens, a humongous 13,000 sq ft children’s playground and 1.4km trails. Additionally, there is a swimming pool (positioned as a “water park”) with five aquatic splashes and two water playgrounds. There are also basketball and badminton courts.

The Green Residence is located on Cheras 9th Mile (Batu 9), and is connected to the rest of the civilization via the Cheras-Kajang Highway. There is also a planned MRT in the works. No pricing information available at the time of the publication of this article.

Areca Contempo Homes

Areca Contempo HomesA maiden project of Areca Properties, the Areca Contempo Homes are a gated and guarded residential project in Cyberjaya. There are 700 units of terrace houses to be built on two parcels of land of about 75 acres over the next five years. Approximately 25% of the land is reserved for landscaping and amenities, which include the usual clubhouse, playgrounds and BBQ pits.

Areca Properties is collaborating with Nadayu (Nadayu Melawati, Nadayu92 Kajang, Mutiara Upper East) as well as Setia Haruman (the master developer of Cyberjaya). The terraces homes are built ready-to-move, and are furnished with a suite of Bosch appliances.

Unit sizes and pricing information is unavailable at the time of publication. We do reckon that the prices would probably match those of Garden Residences, Mah Sing’s landed project also in Cyberjaya (which is fast reaching the RM450 PSF). Is Cyberjaya getting too glut-ty already? Well, that’s the topic for another day. 🙂

Condominium Berjaya

Condominium Berjaya is built by Exopuri. Is it somehow linked to Vincent Tan’s Berjaya? We have no idea. According to people we know, Exopuri is developer with a couple of landed and high rise projects in the northern region, with some apartments in Bukit Mertajam and integrated developments in Bukit Tengah and Lunas.

Condominium Berjaya, Bukit Mertajam


This condominium is a 26 storey tower in Bukit Mertajam housing some 147 units with sizes from 1,429 to a gigantic 3,793 sq ft. Slated to be completed in 2016, prices are at RM290 PSF thereabouts. There are four designs and layouts to choose from if you’re after the “typical” unit. For those looking for duplex and penthouses, there are three and two designs respectively.

Each unit boasts of the sea or the city view, and comes equipped with broadband and Astro connections already plugged in for convenience. Facilities include a sunset deck, a sky lounge as well as an infinity swimming pool.
