PUTRAJAYA | Waterfront Residential Development News



Putrajaya Waterfront Residential



- 2007 International competition, first prize
- Architect :Manfredi Nicoletti and Luca Nicoletti -
Studio Nicoletti Associati; with: Hijjas Kasturi Associates
- psf:: RM700-800 persf


Complex resembles fleet of sail boats

The city of Putrajaya is the new administrative capital of Malaysia, a few miles North of Kuala Lumpur. The new city is based on a system of connected islands created by overflowing a very large plantation of oil palms. The Public Administration buildings are in the centre of the islands, the residential units face the water. The main residential complex is conceived like a fleet of majestic Sail-Boats floating in the lagoon. The rib-like structural system forms the outer skin of the Sail-Boats and gives an important contribution to shadow the inner spaces of the various apartments without interfering with the view of the artificially created lagoon. All the apartments face the opposite sides of the Sail-Buildings as to create bilateral ventilation, with positive bioclimatic effects

Another architectural winning award for Putrajaya Waterfront Residential Development Project by italian architect, Manfredi Nicoletti Architecto. The city of Putrajaya is the new administrative capital of Malaysia, a few miles North of Kuala Lumpur. Several Government offices have re-located there to gain relief from the overcrowding and congestion of Kuala Lumpur, which is Malaysia’s largest city.

PUTRAJAYA WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT
From www.architeria.eu
2007 International competition, first prize

The key of the overall planning for the waterfront is the relationship to the waterfront or lakefront.Whilst the buildings on the boulevard predominantly reinforce the alignment of the boulevard, the waterfront planning should tie the boulevard back to the waterfront. The current masterplan creates large building block footprints that remain heavy a reminiscent of old American models. Our conceptual approach is relative to context and tropical climate.

Three factors influence our sketch planning approach: allow permeable building blocks, smaller block sizes and radiate the buildings to enhance the visual corridors and links between the boulevard and the lakefront; varying the building height of ten storey restrictions heightening at nodal points for massing hierarchy; unify the buildings by introducing a canopy roof uniquely tropical. The new urban plan places integration with landscaping and view as priorities. It encourages creating "fingers" of developments towards the water body and infused with park, creating a series of green forecourts.

The urban plan suggests the building orientation and massing provide maximum view toward the water and development across the lake. The massing is broken into smaller components with different heights. This approach will ensure the integration of landscape and building massing. The landscape and public areas will be larger and located in between the building fingers, which will create an interesting "journey" towards the waterfront.

Putrajaya Waterfront Residential Development, Precinct 4 - (New Launch - Introduction)
Thursday, August 21, 2008

There is not much to update on this project yet except that it is open for registration now. It consists of 2 phases in total, with the first phase launching 4 blocks of residential towers. The last 4 blocks will be launched in phase 2 of the development.

Asking prices has been indicated to be around RM700-800 persf, similar to Mont' Kiara prices. That is rather steep in my opinion, especially in this part of Malaysia where properties are rarely ever in demand due to the distance factor from central KLCC, and also the lack of commercial activities there. Putrajaya is our administrative capital of Malaysia, and from that alone, you can guess that it is not exactly a favourite among us Malaysians as choice of abode. What can you expect from the administrative capital other than over-budgeted aesthetics that don't necessarily imply practicality? Amenities are few and far in between, and residential areas are sparse. It is not a choice for expatriates at this point in time, unless the move to relocate all high commissions and embassies to Putrajaya does materialise eventually.

From an own stay point of view, unless you are seriously looking to stay far and away from the city centre, then you can consider Putrajaya. Do bear in mind that for the easiest of facilities and amenities like food alone, you might have to drive a considerable distance. For investment, I really don't recommend it at this moment. Not even for the rental prospects of it for the time being, not until Putrajaya becomes a fraction of KLCC at least with its bustling activities and demand be it commercial or residential. Having said all that, Putrajaya Holdings sure has taken some pains in making this development as seemingly futuristic as it can get, haven't they?

Mulpha’s Leisure Farm, Putrajaya Holdings win Cityscape awards
Written by Rachael Lee
Wednesday, 27 May 2009 14:22

SINGAPORE: Malaysian developers Leisure Farm Corporation Sdn Bhd and Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd had won awards at the 2009 Cityscape Awards for Real Estate in Asia in Singapore on May 19.

Leisure Farm Corp, a unit of Mulpha International Bhd, won in the "Best Best Green Development (Built)" category with its Leisure Farm Resort project.

Leisure Farm is a residential and gated resort development spread over a total of 1,765 acres freehold land in Gelang Patah. This southern gateway to Johor from Singapore has a 36-hole golf course, clubhouse and equestrian facilities.

It has five precincts, comprising of villas with over 11 different architectural and interior design themes, built on bungalow lots measuring 3,000 sq ft to 18,000 sq ft.

This freehold property offers accessibility to Singapore, Johor Baru city and Sultan Ismail International Airport via the Second Link highway, JB Parkway and North-South Expressway.

Meanwhile, Putrajaya Holdings won the "Best Waterfront Development (Future)" category for its Putrajaya Waterfront Development.

The condominium project was designed by Studio Nicoletti Associati and Malaysian-based Hijjas Kasturi Associates. The main residential complex is conceived like a fleet of majestic Sail-Boats floating in the lagoon, with rib-like structural system forms the outer skin of the Sail-Boats

The buildings will be powered using alternative energy and they will emit about 50% less carbon dioxide than other residential projects.There are 12 award categories in Cityscape Asia 2009, spanning from Corporate Social Responsibility, Green Development, Urban Design and Master Planning through to the best developments in Waterfront, Retail, Commercial, Residential, and Mixed Use Project (with a Built and Future award in each category).

This year, two new green awards were introduced. Singapore's upcoming Ocean Financial Centre by Keppel Land International Limited winning the "Best Green Development (Future)" award.

Singapore's luxury residential development, The Sail @ Marina Bay was also recognised as the "Best Waterfront Development (Built)", while CapitaLand's Muchuan Green Hope School was honoured with the "Best Corporate Social Responsibility Development".

For commercial/ retail development, Shanghai ICC was named the "Best Commercial/ Retail Development (Future)", while Elements by Hong Kong's MTR Corporation Limited won the "Best Commercial/ Retail Development (Built)".

India's Sis Danube and Golf Greens-Golf Condominiums and Mandeville Golf Villas walked away with "Best Residential Development (Built)" and "Best Residential Development (Future)" respectively.

Meanwhile The Central by Far East Organisation was awarded the "Best Mixed Used Development (Built)", while Aqua Pearl won the award for "Best Mixed Used Development (Future)".
