(The Star) New project good for area

JOHOR BARU: Property developer Eco World Development Group Bhd recently celebrated the opening of its West Lake Gardens @ Eco Tropics in Kota Masai, aimed at offering beautiful community spaces for the public.
Its chairman Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin said that some RM14.5mil was spent to create a 7.52ha-sized lake, where it doubles as a rainwater harvesting system.
He said the collected water would be used to water the plants at the park.
“The scenic lake was built with numerous facilities such as gazebos, gardens, outdoor gymnasiums as well as a children’s playground, and what makes it more exciting is that the park is open to the public to enjoy.
“We are starting 2017 on a high note and through the development of Eco Tropics.

“Since it was first launched in 2015, Eco World has been steadily working to elevate the image of Kota Masai by improving the facilities for the people to enjoy,” he said.
He added that Eco World’s effort to improve the area has had a positive impact on the neighbourhood’s image and property values, resulting in more and more people keen to call the area home.
“It is our goal to turn this RM5.4bil worth of Eco Tropics into a much sought-after area by improving the accessibility and introducing more amenities,” said Liew in his speech during the opening of West Lake Gardens at Eco Tropics on Sunday night.
He added that Eco World was also planning to bring in a hypermarket to the Eco Tropics commercial zone, which would comprise shop lots and light industrial factories.
“We are always looking forward to upgrade Kota Masai to make it a mixed township inspired by the architecture of The Hamptons resort in Long Island, New York,” he said.
During the event, thousands thronged the area to join in the fun where guests were entertained with lively performances by EcoWorld Symphony Drummers and EcoWorld Choir.
Other activities included street acts, live bands and street bazaars where at the end of the programme visitors were entertained with a six minute-long massive fireworks display.
Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin who officiated at the event, said that the construction of the West Lake Gardens has proven Eco World’s commitment to helping the environment while making a sustainable development.
“This is also in line with the state government’s guidelines where everyone plays an important role in saving and conserving the environment in Johor,” he said.
