A tale of healthy township

As the City of Elmina was planned by the brainchildren of Sime Darby Properties Sdn Bhd, little did anyone know that the township was built upon great care to balance between the environment and healthy living.

Brought to view how life could be at the City of Elmina, Eco Club Malaysia experienced first-hand on Sime Darby’s dedication to raise its community’s quality of life via its intelligent architecture in a health and wellness retreat within the development.

The architects behind the township featured triathletes Sue Teoh and Jensen Lee, YogaOneThatIWant Studio’s founder Atilia Haron, PurelyB’s co-founder Marissa Perry, Permaculture Perak co-founder Amy Tan, and TRCRC executive director Dr Dzaeman Dzukifli.

The retreat offered a myriad of activities for guests of Sime Darby, including cycling activities, yoga session, community gardening, tree planting as well as a healthy cooking session all held in different locations within the City of Elmina.

“The city will feature a 90km path exclusively for jogging and cycling activities for the community of Elmina, which also features a park that directly connects to the vast forest reserve in the area,” said Appollo Leong, head of Elmina Cluster 1 project.

With more than 40 years of experience in the development industry, Sime Darby has truly gone a long way since it laid its first brick towards sustainable communities.

Spanning over more than 2,000 hectares and a gross development value of RM36bil, the City of Elmina will be the new light within the Shah Alam district with the creation of 36,000 new homes that is expected to home more than 150,000 people as well as a 121 hectares’ commercial hub.
