A family affair with international flair
The launch was organized as a complete family affair, with buyers streaming into the show units and property gallery continuously while the children were entertained by clowns, magicians and various activities such as face painting and bumper boat rides. Treated with free flow of cotton candy and pop corn, the crowd was also entertained with the exquisite performance of world renowned violinist, Ms Joanne Yeoh together with other performances which included a strings quartet, belly dancing by young professional dancers and jazz numbers.
Situated in the heart of Petaling Jaya, Icon City offers a contemporary live work and play concept within a green and sustainable development. The market catchment is extensive, including matured and affluent neighbours such as Kuala Lumpur, Subang Jaya, USJ, Shah Alam and Damansara.
“Icon City shall be an integrated development as buyers like this concept. We are investing on a comprehensive traffic dispersal system to improve access, and this will greatly ease the congestion issue that had plagued this location for the past few years. Some analysts and industry experts have opined on the potential for the third MRT line from Kuala Lumpur to Klang to pass through the project, and if that materialize, would greatly enhance the access to an already well connected project,” said Mah Sing Group Managing Director cum Group Chief Executive, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum.
“As connectivity is a major appeal, Icon City’s strategic location with accessibility via a network of highways such as NKVE, ELITE, NPE and KESAS and public transportation via road or rail such as the Seri Setia and Setia Jaya KTM stations and Kelana Jaya LRT station, would serve the business community and residents well. We expect to open registration for the serviced residences with sizes ranging from 563sqft to 1,779sqft by 3Q2011,” said Andy Chua, Mah Sing’s Chief Operating Officer.
Icon City is poised to be amongst the first in the Southeast Asia to be certified by Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED), USA and Green Building Index (GBI), Malaysia and Green Mark, Singapore and be the ultimate integrated development in Petaling Jaya.
The show gallery is now open to the public from 10 am to 6pm daily.
