Lido Waterfront Boulevard Sendirian Berhad, a subsidiary of property developer Tropicana Corporation Berhad (“Tropicana”) announced recently that it has successfully constructed and completed the flood mitigation system in December 2020.
After thorough checking, the system is ready to be handed over to the local authority, Majlis Bandaraya Johor Bahru (“MBJB”). This system will aid the Johor government in their flood prevention effort as well as providing a sigh of relief for the Johor community. This initiative reinforces Tropicana’s commitment to redefine the art of living and caring for the community.
Lee Han Ming, Tropicana’s Group Chief Executive Officer shared the company’s commitment to alleviating the life of the Johor community and thanked MBJB for their good support.
“Staying true to our Tropicana mantra, we aim to redefine the art of living by providing a safe and wholesome environment for our community to live and prosper. This handover exercise marked an important milestone for our Tropicana development in Lido Waterfront Boulevard, Johor.
“This newly built flood mitigation system is well-equipped to trap garbage and prevent it from flowing into the sea. This will also help to improve water quality, ending pollution, and saving marine lives. To ensure the system works properly, we have also installed a pump control board and SCADA /CCTV monitor system in the pump control room. We are grateful to MBJB’s support and we are confident that together, we will raise the bar in mitigating flood.”
YAB Dato’ Haji Hasni Bin Mohammad, Menteri Besar Johor affirmed and appreciated the efforts of Tropicana’s building the flood mitigation system for the local community. “By having this flood mitigation system, it will help to ease the flood problem that we have faced over the years at the upstream of Sungai Chat and Sungai Abdul Samad. This system is beneficial for our Johor community.” he summarised.
Lido Waterfront Boulevard is a unique development by the sea which embraces the city lifestyle and waterfront living. Designed to create an integrated waterfront mixed development destination with 2.4km of beautiful coastal promenade in Johor Bahru, this 163-acre development site features a mix of residential serviced apartments, hotels, offices, and retail shopping, complemented by a recreational facility, public park, and an iconic cultural centre.
To add more good news to the Johor community, Tropicana has recently partnered with Raffles American School and Raffles University to provide its homebuyers with attractive rebates when they signed up their children in this education centre.
