Visitors will enjoy the state-of-the-art architecture amidst the peaceful surroundings that embody the spirit of sustainability that we uphold strongly at S P Setia and Setia EcoHill,” Koh added.
The overall splendid design of EcoHill Walk is inspired by the Grand Canyon, where the massive steep canyon walls flanking each other create a valley that is vibrant and alive, bursting with activity and movement in its hollow. In similar fashion, EcoHill Walk is designed to simulate a structural canyon where activity is rife in its central walkway lined by the commercial retail shops facing each other. Just as being at the Grand Canyon is about taking in its grandeur, Ecohill Walk offers a lively mix of a man-made stream, water sculptures and lush landscapes between a “canyon” of commercial retail shops that serve as an attraction on its own beyond its commercial purposes.
EcoHill Walk is located in Setia EcoHill a carefully planned sustainable township spread over 673 acres. Conceptualised and developed as an eco and self-sustained township, Setia EcoHill has flourished over the past three years, delivering the RM80 million LEKAS-EcoHill Link, landscape, waterscapes and themed gardens, an international school as well as over 1,300 homes to its first phase’s customers.
