Malaysian property developer Gamuda Land is expanding internationally with a plan to erect at least five new overseas projects annually from 2023 onwards.

Gamuda Land CEO Ngan Chee Meng explained that the expansion was part of the developer’s five-year business plan to achieve annual sales figures amounting to RM8 billion.

The developer will be diversifying its markets in countries like the United Kingdom (UK) and Australia with the launch of two new properties:

West Hampstead Central, London

Featuring an architectural design that is inspired by that part of London’s vernacular mansion blocks and traditional craftsmanship, West Hampstead Central pays tribute to both English heritage and contemporary design that embraces the future.

West Hampstead Central features 101 units of one and two-bedroom apartments.

The property was designed with modern building techniques for greater energy efficiency and sustainability features as well as structures that maximise the natural light available for every unit while keeping residents connected to nature through extensive landscaping within and surrounding the development.

West Hampstead Central enjoys a prime location within London with many of the capital’s top attractions and neighbourhoods located within walking, biking or a quick tube ride away.

It’s also well-supported by overground, rail and tube stations that’s just within 2-min walking distance to make travelling for work or leisure easy for everyone living there.

It’s also within walking distance from independent shops, bars, restaurants and cafes, boutique gyms, fitness studios, art galleries and green spaces.

The property is also close to London’s Finchley Road which is home to large supermarket branches and is only a mile away from the quaint alleyways of Hampstead Village.

Hampstead Heath, one of London’s most iconic green spaces spread over 800 acres in size is also located within close proximity to the development which is just 11 minutes by bike.

Here, there’s an abundance of nature, woods and meadows and inspiring landscapes to ramble through.

West Hampstead Central is also well-positioned for educational opportunities, with a wide choice of schools, colleges and universities within easy reach. The renowned London Business School is only a mere 15 minutes away by bike.

Located approximately 1.2km from the Melbourne Central Business District, The Canopy on Normanby is located in an up-and-coming precinct within Fishermans Bend, Australia’s largest urban renewal project in the heart of the city

The property houses 213 units of one, two or three-bedroom apartments planned over 20 levels and showcases a host of green-building features as well as incorporating biophilic designs to connect residents with nature.

Designed by Hayball Architects, Oculus and Hip V. Hype, the project will feature a biophilic spine throughout the development with dedicated areas for work and recreation amongst green spaces.

Cascading green walls will be a dominant feature throughout corridors, lobbies and terraces. A deck atop the development will feature lush green planting and resident amenities such as a Japanese-inspired onsen, urban farming beds as well as a meditation and wellness studio.

In collaboration with the City of Port Phillip’s Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Fishermans Bend Taskforce, Gamuda will also deliver a new 3,000sqm public park that will see a section of neighbouring Johnson Street permanently closed and transformed into an open green space for the community.

The park will be home to over 6,000 carefully selected native trees and plants.

A special preview of these properties will be held from 1 – 2 October at the Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

Chee Meng said that mature markets like the ones in Australia and the United Kingdom present a host of opportunities for the developer to apply and showcase its mindful planning and sustainability expertise.

The properties are said to feature the best in modern architecture and are built to be green with minimal environmental impact with Gamuda’s “listening to what the land has to tell us” development principle.

Our climate change agenda has steered us to be a bit more focused on our goals and the outcomes we hope to achieve in our endeavours. In 2021, Gamuda, as a group, shifted our strategies to further define environmental, social and governance (ESG), with a clear set of targets to map our path to the ‘green economy’ via the Gamuda Green Plan.
