SHAH ALAM – S P Setia took proactive steps to reaffirm their commitment in building sustainable spaces, namely a surau and Gerai MBSA, to fulfill its communities’ needs. Forming part of the integrated township of Setia AlamImpian, Shah Alam, both amenities were completed in March and November 2023, respectively.
The surau and Gerai MBSA were recently handed over in late 2023 to the Valuation Department, Shah Alam City Council (MBSA), and the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS), respectively, as part of Setia’s corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Highlighting Malaysia’s rich tapestry of cultures and religions, S P Setia Bhd General Manager Dato’ Muhamad Zaili Muhammad Yusof underscores the group’s commitment to integrating the daily and religious needs of their communities in the strategic development of townships. “Our belief extends beyond constructing mere structures; we are the architects of cultures and communal spaces,” he says.
Approximately RM4.1 million has been allocated for the construction of Gerai MBSA and the surau. Spanning an area of 9,530 sq ft, Gerai MBSA comprises 12 stalls and operates as a semi-open F&B hub, supporting local hawkers and catering to the needs of the surrounding communities.
Named Surau Setia Al-Muqarrabin, which means “those who are close to God” in Arabic, the 5167-square-feet prayer facility is designed to benefit the Muslim community in Setia AlamImpian. Equipped in accordance with Islamic principles, it provides a conducive space for the community’s prayer activities, including amenities such as parking area for vehicles, specially-abled individuals and van jenazah, as well as the basic surau facilities namely prayer area, ablution room, and toilet.
Meanwhile, with its recently unveiled community hub and retail space, Setia AlamImpian is poised to become the highly sought-after residential address in Shah Alam. The 1,235- acre integrated township stands as a living testament to Setia’s LiveLearnWorkPlay philosophy, where the current population of about 15,000 residents enjoys the convenience of living in close proximity to growth centres like Shah Alam, Klang, and Petaling Jaya.
Aligned with the township’s concept of “Arts Inspired Living,” one can easily spot mural arts and art sculptures throughout the area. Furthermore, in collaboration with UiTM Shah Alam, Setia AlamImpian hosts an Arts Residency Programme, providing budding artists with opportunities to showcase their talents. An art gallery has also been introduced at the newly launched retail space, LakePoint Central, offering arts students a venue to exhibit their masterpieces.
