PASIR GUDANG, 8 August – The launch of Mah Sing Group’s (Mah Sing) largest township, Meridin East over the weekend saw the township’s double-storey link homes, The Greenway, reach an impressive 85% take-up rate. Greenway comprises 492 units of double-storey link homes with built-ups from 1,595 square (sq) feet (ft) to 1,648 sq ft, with 4 bedrooms. The homes are priced from RM357,000.
The successful launch of Meridin East’s The Greenway, follows Mah Sing’s previous launches of Cerrado Residential Suites Tower A, Southville City in Bangi and final tower of Lakeville Residence in Taman Wahyu where both developments reached take-up rates of 100% and 92% respectively.
The launch of the Meridin East’s Sales Gallery and Show Village was officiated by Chief Minister of Johor, Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled bin Nordin and saw thousands of visitors attend the opening in Pasir Gudang to choose their preferred homes.
Group Managing Director of Mah Sing, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum shared that the launch represents a historical milestone for the Group. “Meridin East is our largest township and its launch marks a milestone for the Group. We have invested significantly to provide the best for our homeowners, among which include the RM30million Sales Gallery which we officially opened over the weekend. The Sales Gallery will be converted into the township’s community clubhouse over the next three to five years.”
“We are also glad to see the positive reception the public has shown for our Greenway double-storey link homes. The enhanced infrastructure and added accessibility into Meridin East will be a strong pull for the township. The Group is already upgrading Jalan Kong Kong and the next phase will involve developing a proposed direct slip in and slip out from the Senai-Desaru Expressway (SDE) spur road, benefitting Meridin East’s residents and the surrounding community,” said Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong.
Direct Link from the Senai-Desaru Expressway
Mah Sing is currently widening Jalan Kong Kong to a 40-meter, four-lane thoroughfare. The proposed direct slip in and slip out from the SDE spur road at the Cahaya Baru Toll into Jalan Kong Kong is set to improve accessibility for Meridin East’s residents heading towards or coming from Tanjung Langsat.
The Federal and Johor government’s initiatives will also spur growth in the region. The proposed Johor-Singapore Rapid Transit System is scheduled to be completed in 2018 while concrete deliberations are underway for a proposed third link bridge from Desaru/Pengerang to Singapore. The Johor government also recently announced a proposed ferry and water taxi services from Kong Kong, Pasir Gudang to Singapore’s Changi Ferry Terminal. All these will see Meridin East become an in-demand location for those who work in both Johor and Singapore.
Meridin East, A Sustainable Community
Meridin East is situated in Pasir Gudang, Iskandar Malaysia, a gated and guarded township to be developed over the next 12 to 15 years. The 1,313 acre integrated mixed development has a Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM5billion and is Mah Sing Group’s biggest development by acreage. As Meridin East is located within close proximity of the booming Pasir Gudang Industrial Hub and Tanjung Langsat Industrial Park, it will play an important role in addressing the need for homes for workers and families in the respective areas.
Besides facilities and amenities for a complete and sustainable development, Meridin East will provide residents with a lush green environment and a wide selection of activities to encourage exercise and healthy living. The Group plans to plant several thousand native trees around the townships Mulberry lake to preserve and enhance the natural flora and fauna. The township also has 110 acres allocated to develop various activities for its residents to exercise.
