Pioneer in SMART living at the integrated commercial development

The communities are centred around various transportations with walkable distances to the CIQ complex, bus terminals, the upcoming Bukit Chagar Rapid Transit System (RTS) station and the Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD).
The 1.42-acres freehold development is also the first in JBCC to introduce SMART living concept, which combines integrated technology with premium lifestyle to give residents the best of both worlds within easily accessible vicinity. In partnership with UMLand and Samsung, each Suasana residential unit is equipped with revolutionary smart home features that allow residents to take control of their homes’ securities, entertainment and energy management with just a tap on their mobile phones.

The sizes of the units range from 644 square feet to 1,235 square feet, which are priced from RM 1,100 per square feet.
