PETALING JAYA (June 27): An exciting mountain biking park amidst nature at Setia EcoHill 2, Semenyih, Selangor has earned a Gold of the EdgeProp-ILAM Malaysia’s Sustainable Landscape Award 2020 at EdgeProp Malaysia’s Best Managed and Sustainable Property Awards 2020.
The award results were announced at a virtual awards ceremony hosted on EdgeProp Malaysia’s Facebook page on the evening of June 27.
The Adventure Park at Setia EcoHill 2 was previously an oil palm and rubber estate. With the help of landscape architectural firm Praxcis Design Sdn Bhd, developer S P Setia Bhd not only successfully carved a mountain biking track out of it but also regenerated the forest by infusing biodiversity to create a new healthy ecosystem.
Completed in December 2017, the activity-based public park has become a place that draws people to visit in Semenyih. People often come here for mountain biking, jungle trekking, bird watching and to enjoy quality outdoor time with family.
S P Setia executive vice president Datuk Tan Hon Lim said the developer constantly strives to place sustainability at the forefront of its developments, and winning the award reinforced its conviction that it is the right thing to do.
“We would like to congratulate our landscaping architect for this deserving win. We are very proud of the team who worked on the Adventure Park which is has proudly been the backbone of the Setia EcoHill 2 development,” Tan told EdgeProp.my after the virtual awards ceremony.
Other Gold winners of the EdgeProp-ILAM Malaysia’s Sustainable Landscape Award 2020 are Horizon Hills, Mont'Kiara Palma and Windows on the Park.
EdgeProp Malaysia’s Best Managed and Sustainable Property Awards 2020 is organised by EdgeProp Malaysia and is brought to you by partner Nippon Paint Malaysia. Supporting partners are Panasonic Malaysia and KipleLive, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Packet.
The winners received their trophies from guest of honour Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin.
