Wong shared: “As Residensi ZIG is our biophilic-themed residence, it focuses on creating an environment where the building occupants can reconnect and immerse themselves with nature to improve their physical and mental well-being.”
The development’s green areas are not just provided on the ground and podium level but also at the mid-level (levels 35 and 37) and up to the roof for the occupants to enjoy. Emulating the rainforest, the different layers from the ground to the top (emergent layer) provide shelter and livelihood for different living organisms.
Moreover, Residensi ZIG’s biophilic design revolves not only around adapting flora around the development. Natural sunlight and natural ventilation are part of nature as well. The tower is orientated to avoid direct sunlight while still providing indirect natural lighting into the units. A ‘no air well’ design approach enables and significantly improves natural ventilation for the common corridor and the units as well.
Residensi ZIG’s essential amenities are aplenty and tailored for the whole family and the community, including a 50m lap pool with a beach-inspired entry, an intergenerational playground, an indoor games area, and a central park with a designated picnic corner.
For those with an active lifestyle, the development comes with badminton courts, a trendy indoor gym, a wellness corner with yoga decks, exercise stations, a hammock corner, a Tranquil Garden with a meditative deck, a tea corner, a herbs garden for those who prefer to wind down after the daily grind.
Situated in the township of Kiara Bay, which is also within the mature neighbourhood of Kepong, Residensi ZIG is easily accessible via highways such as the Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE), Selayang-Kepong highway and DamansaraPuchong Expressway (LDP).
Residensi ZIG falls under the RISE Series of UEM Sunrise’s Happy+ product series. Homes within this series are designed as flexible and agile spaces able to shape and shift to suit your lifestyle with more value built in. These attainable homes embody practical living with an environment of simplicity, recreation and convenience.
With an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM 646.2 million, Residensi ZIG is scheduled to be completed sometime in Q4 2027. Announced in 2019, Kiara Bay is UEM Sunrise’s flagship township in the mature and historic neighbourhood of Kepong. Spanning 29.4 hectares (72.74 acres), the current township plan has 15 developable plots, roads, green pathways, and open spaces.
Considering the pandemic and market sentiments, UEM Sunrise, together with its joint-venture (JV) partner, Melati Ehsan Group, has plans to echo the “liveability” concept of Kiara Bay with a focus on connectivity, community, and sustainability. The replanning of Kiara Bay will consist of 13 plots of developable land, among others and is currently under review by the authorities. UEM Sunrise will provide updates in the near future.
