unway Iskandar, dubbed Nature’s Capital City represents Sunway Group’s largest township yet in ASEAN’s next strategic growth centre known as Iskandar Malaysia in Johor. Spanning across 1,800 acres of land with a gross development value (GDV) of RM30 billion, the integrated mixed-use development envisioned by the group has turned into a very present reality. Seen as a culmination of Sunway’s extensive experience in master-planning communities, the epitome of a liveable city complemented by the valuegenerating hub has been integrated with six beautifully-crafted precincts. Once completed, it will comprise world-class key components including educational institutions, leisure hotspots, healthcare and recreational facilities so there is something for everyone. Not to be left out are buyers from the younger generation known as Millennials who are seeking to be part of the action here. Understanding the need to cater to the younger generation, the group’s Sunway Property launched the unique integrated Sunway GRID development. Spanning across 5.2 acres, the residences represent the first build-andbuy online homes. When the website was launched, the response to this innovative concept of allowing purchasers to book their preferred unit and customised it online from anywhere in the world without the need to visit the show gallery received overwhelming response. One such satisfied buyer is Ryan Teo who managed to log on to Sunway GRID’s website at www.sunwaygrid.com during the latest launch of Sunway Iskandar. After booking his preferred unit online, Teo was thrilled to discover that within minutes of sealing his purchase, destiny saw to it that he would welcome his first baby on the same day. “I personally wish to thank Sunway Property for introducing the first build and buy online concept for Sunway GRID. It is very convenient and I managed to book my unit online while waiting for the arrival of my baby at the hospital. “This made 11.11.2017 one of the most remarkable days of my life as I got my baby and a house on the same day!”
Sunway staff assisting customers with the first online booking system application introduced by Sunway Property relates the happy new father. He says that the decision to purchase the unit revolved around the fact that it is one of the most affordable residential developments in Medini which allows one to customise the rooms, furniture and more according to one’s own needs. “Sunway GRID is a space that we imagine will bring a community of youths to come together to commune, exchange ideas, and flourish their personal and business ambitions. “This is the first time that we have designed a fully youth-centric development and created digitallycustomisable homes. This enthusiastic response from the market encourages us to come up with even more innovative products for Sunway Iskandar,” shares Gerard Soosay, CEO of Sunway Iskandar.
