Hijauan Saujana expects post-CNY sales boost
PETALING JAYA: Following the official launch of the RM150 million Hijauan Saujana serviced apartment development within the freehold Saujana Resort earlier this month, Esquire Corner Sdn Bhd is targeting a 50% sales performance after the Chinese New Year celebrations next month.
Its manager Jennifer Toh told theSun it expects activity in the property market to pick up after the festive celebrations.

“The 200-unit project was soft-launched last October and the first block of 88 units was opened for sale. We have achieved about 30% sales despite the year-end holiday period,” she said, adding that its buyers, both local and Singaporeans, were attracted to Hijauan Saujana’s affordability, with average prices between RM370 and RM430 psf.
While Toh admitted that it is also facing competition from similar offerings within Saujana Resort and Ara Damansara, the developer has lined- up several marketing options to entice customers.
“While our prospective customers can opt to purchase a bare unit for their own use, we are also offering to do up the units with furniture and fittings at an additional cost of RM35,000. This is to entice those who are looking for investment units,” she said.
The developer is also going to offer the option of a guaranteed rental yield of 6% annually for two years that is only applicable for those who take up the furnishing option.
“This is an attractive deal as it will guarantee rental income for investors for two years. Based on our studies, amenities such as the Japanese international school and golf course provide this area with a good rental catchment,” said Toh, adding that the developer plans to keep the remaining 112 units in the second block for recurring rental income.
Sited on a 5.5-acre tract, the serviced apartments are housed in two blocks of 10 and 12 levels. With four types to choose from, the units come with built-ups ranging between 1,700 and 4,200 sq ft.
Those on the podium level, with builtups of 1,700 sq ft, enjoy direct access to the garden, and prices start from RM700,000.
Meanwhile, the average price of typical units with 1,700 sq ft built-ups are from RM600,000.
These come with three ensuite bathrooms, a maid’s room as well as a powder room.
The developer says that each unit will also enjoy exclusivity, with a private access lift from the lobby to their doorstep. The project boasts a low-density of 36 units per acre.
There are also 1- and 2-storey penthouses priced from RM1 million and from RM1.7 million respectively. The smaller unit, with built-ups of 2,600 sq ft, comes with a 600 sq ft rooftop terrace while the larger 4,200 sq ft unit has a 450 sq ft rooftop terrace. All units come with storage space of between 80 and over 100 sq ft situated on the ground or parking levels. The maintenance fee is set at 30 sen psf and is inclusive of the sinking fund.
Amenities include swimming and wading pools, a jogging track, clubhouse, gym, tennis court and barbeque pits. Hijauan Saujana is also broadband ready and enjoys easy access from the NKVE, LDP and Federal highways.
Hijauan Saujana is Esquire Corner’s second residential project located within Saujana Resort. It first offered Maplewoods at Saujana, a gated 2-storey semidee development, on an 11-acre tract.
According to the developer, a standard semidee with a land area of 4,000 sq ft and built-up of 3,600 sq ft was sold for RM1.7 million on the secondary market recently.
Similar units were launched three years ago at RM1.28 million.

Esquire Corner to launch Hijauan Saujana

KUALA LUMPUR (June 22): After some delay, Esquire Corner Sdn Bhd is set to officially launch Hijauan Saujana, a freehold serviced apartment project nestled within Saujana Resort near Ara Damansara, Selangor, this weekend. The development has a gross development value (GDV) of RM326 million and spans 4.82 acres (1.95ha).
The developer had initially held a preview for Hijauan Saujana back in 2007 at the height of the global financial crisis but following a less than favourable response, it decided to go back to the drawing board to replan the project and wait for market conditions to improve.
"We believe this is the right time to launch Hijauan Saujana. Previously, we had a totally different concept and target market. The previous development plan was for a rather upscale project, the units were huge, with sizes starting at 1,700 sq ft," said Shawn Yee Chun Syan, executive director of Esquire Corner.
He added that the replanning process for the development has been very market driven. "We now offer a good mix of unit sizes. Since introducing smaller units, the project has seen good response. About 70% of the studio units have been taken up prior to the official launch while 36% of the larger units have been sold."
Yee attributed the encouraging sales of the studio units to their lower entry level, which makes them affordable to single urbanites or young couples.
The development comprises three towers housing 539 units. There are 11 layouts with 209 units of one-bedroom apartments and 300 units of three-bedroom apartments with sizes from 621 sq ft to 1,879 sq ft. Prices start from RM311,260 to RM803,850. Maintenance is set at 18 sen per sq ft while the sinking fund is 10% of the maintenance fee.
Facilities at Hijauan Saujana include a clubhouse, kindergarten, multipurpose hall, an 80m infinity pool, playgrounds, laundry room, gym and a tennis court. The development is located next to Glenmarie Court and is in close proximity to various amenities including a mall, medical centre, three golf courses as well as the Japanese School of Kuala Lumpur.
Esquire Corner was founded in 2004. Other developments under its belt include the gated and guarded Maplewoods at Saujana also within Saujana Resort. It spans 11 acres and houses semi-detached homes. Prices for the homes have more than doubled to RM2.7 million from the initial launch price of RM1.2 million.
The company has also built a 115-acre mixed township in Johor called Taman Pulai Emas which currently enjoys a 90% occupancy. It currently has a four-acre plot located within the Iskandar Malaysia region, Johor, which it hopes to develop into a serviced apartment in the near future.
