Seri Kasturi Apartment, Selangor, Malaysia
As a realisation of S P Setia’s vision of redefining public perception of affordable housing, Seri Kasturi has set new benchmarks for the property development industry in Malaysia.
Seri Kasturi is a 16-acre medium-cost apartment development situated in a pleasant precinct in the northern sector of Setia Alam, an award-winning township in Malaysia. It is a relatively low-density enclave that comprises four 11-storey blocks of 3-bedroom, 2-bath apartments and a clubhouse cum community centre complete with an Olympic-length swimming pool. It is in the immediate vicinity of a commercial centre, public parks and forest reserve, with great schools, career and business opportunities and excellent facilities just a short distance away.
By leveraging on good planning, design and pre-fab construction, we have successfully created an affordable housing model that far exceeds expectations. The use of Industrialised Building System (IBS) lowered construction costs and increased construction speed while ensuring consistently high standards of quality. The design and layout prioritised egalitarianism, aesthetics and livability, not just to ensure the residents’ comfort but also to engender a sense of community and pride.
Ultimately, by providing affordable homes that punch far above their weight in terms of features and facilities, Seri Kasturi offers home buyers in the medium to low-income groups the opportunity not just to fulfil their aspirations for a better quality of life but also to take steps towards wealth creation.
Since the successful launch of Seri Kasturi, other affordable housing developers have adopted a similar model for their new projects, proof that we are making a positive difference for the benefit of society.
