Situated in the southern part of the Klang Valley, Gamuda Cove by Gamuda Land is enveloped in verdant greenery and has forward-thinking developments and design. With its impressive facilities and sustainability efforts, it is poised to become a leading smart city and sanctuary for urban dwellers in the Klang Valley.
The 1,530-acre township will offer features such as carbon-free public transport, a dedicated covered pedestrian walk/bikeway to promote safe and healthy living, an electric vehicle charging station and the use of renewable energy in its garden offices and town square façade.
It is strategically located and has direct access to the Elite highway and the upcoming 2km Cyberjaya link. It is also just a 20-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and is close to logistics hubs and centres, making it a township for the future and a model space for living and working.
In addition, its latest offerings, Townsquare and the SplashMania water theme park, are set to make Gamuda Cove a bustling, highly coveted business centre in the region.
Tourism and retail the catalysts for Townsquare
Part of Gamuda Cove's commercial hub called Heart of Cove, Townsquare is a European-inspired commercial, leisure and entertainment centre.
It is divided into three sections - The Street, The Alley and The Plaza - and will feature a variety of shops, small eateries, bistros and cafés in a European-style al fresco setting, in a temperature-controlled environment of 28 degrees Celsius. Canopies, softscapes, skylights, fans, ventilators and a dry fountain are among the many smart elements used to achieve this optimal temperature.
Spread over 7.49 acres, Townsquare will comprise 100 units with built-ups ranging from 2158 to 6246sq ft. It is due for completion by 2024.
A distinctive feature that will ensure Townsquare's vibrancy is the fact that it will be connected to SplashMania, which is set to become Asia's largest rainforest-themed water park when it is completed next year.
The 18-acre theme park, other nearby facilities and the overall township will attract a significant crowd from its catchment areas. There is expected to be a total of 1.3 million unique visitors from SplashMania, Discovery Park and Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands; 650,000 daily visitors from areas within a 10km radius of the township such as Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and USJ in Subang Jaya, and also from nearby KLIA. The group anticipates a total of 100,000 residents in Gamuda Cove by 2030.
Collectively, Townsquare and SplashMania will be the catalysts to make Gamuda Cove a top tourist destination for locals and international visitors alike. In addition, Discovery Park and Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands will offer outdoor adventures and eco-activities in the township such as horse riding, boat cruises, camping and cycling.
Gamuda Cove, which has a gross development value of about RM20 billion, will be developed over the next 20 years. Located between the Kuala Langat Forest Reserve and Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands, it will have more than 23,000 residential units, which will consist of landed properties, terraced houses, semi-detached houses, cluster houses, bungalows, lakeside residences, serviced apartments and affordable homes.
Sustainable and convenient amenities
Apart from Townsquare and SplashMania, Gamuda Cove will also have amenities such as cafés, retail outlets (opposite the Garden Office), open green spaces and parks, a community pavilion for business meetings and social gatherings, wellness centres, an education hub and grocers as well as international and Chinese schools nearby.
Just 10 minutes from the Central Business District is the 90-acre Forest Park at the southern part of Gamuda Cove. It will have an education and learning centre within the Wetlands Arboretum. Additionally, residents will be able to enjoy the rich biodiversity of the 1,111-acre Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands.
The working community will also have access to the parks in the retail area in Townsquare, the 60-acre Central Park and more pocket parks, which are suitable for gatherings and idea exchange.
The township promotes a 10-minute commute lifestyle, with streets designed for walking. It will also have a zero-carbon transport network - an electric tram system and 250km of cycling and pedestrian routes - to connect Heart of Cove to other districts in the development.
In addition, Gamuda Land is committed to delivering the Gamuda Green Plan and technological innovations that are sustainable, practical and beneficial to the community. These will include energy-efficient buildings, zero carbon/vehicle-free lanes, walking and cycling paths, and the use of alternative energy sources and solar-powered photovoltaic panels.
With all these features, the developer is confident that Gamuda Cove will be the most desirable green township in southern Klang Valley, where business opportunities abound for those who truly understand what a vibrant city integrated with nature offers.
To commemorate the unveiling of Townsquare, there will be a virtual event, featuring SplashMania, on Gamuda Land's Facebook page at 2pm on Saturday, Oct 16, 2021. This will be followed by an exclusive webinar series on the mindful planning of Heart of Cove. Together, these will provide interesting insights into Townsquare and SplashMania.
