Lofty elegant homes with eco-friendly features

Luxurious green living awaits future residents of Alila2’s exclusive ‘bungalows and semi-detached homes in the sky’ in upscale Tanjung Bungah, Penang.

Developed by Nilai Arif Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Hunza Property Bhd, it combines the comforts of modern resort lifestyles with lush greens and eco-friendly concepts.

Its 270 lavish residences are housed in a pair of 33- and 34-storey towers, built on 9.8 acres of freehold-elevated land in the suburb of Lembah Permai.

Sized from 1,905sq ft for typical units, and up to 5,789sq ft for the penthouse, they are among the choice offerings at the Fair 2016 from tomorrow to Sunday.

All units are designed with contemporary elegance and offering brilliant views of surroundings, and are limited to five per floor.

Thus, residents are assured of a peaceful, low-density environment well cocooned from the hustle and bustle of the city.

But the best part about living in Alila2, set for physical completion towards the end of 2017, are the green features that reduce overall environmental impact.

Residents can take comfort in knowing that various measures are employed to lessen the consumption of precious resources like water and electricity.

Both towers are designed to conform to MS1525, Malaysia’s Code of Practice on energy efficiency, and incorporate shading devices and special glass.

This allows natural light into units whilst cutting down direct sunlight to create thermally comfortable environments with less need for air-conditioning.

Common areas like the car park and corridors are installed with energy-efficient T5 light fittings with photocells and timers, so they only light up when necessary.

Low VOC, sustainable and eco-labelled building products are used where possible, and 50% of wood-based materials are approved by the Malaysian Timber Certification Council.

Rainwater collection systems and a retention pond are built- in to collect precipitation, with the water then recycled for landscaping purposes.

And once residents move in, there will be designated recycling bins to encourage separation of waste, because recycling starts at home.

About 47% of the total land area would be covered in trees and gardens, providing a lush ambience for one to enjoy the best in life.

The facilities here make it feel like an unending holiday, including a vast infinity pool with cascading waterfall, aqueduct feature and Jacuzzi beds.

All these are surrounded by verdant landscaping much like a magical waterfall area deep within a forest.

Young ones will have much fun with the water play equipment and wading pool, alongside forest-themed appliances and contraptions that encourage spending time outdoors.

A two-storey lounge area with barbecue and dining facilities, as well as a green deck, are excellent venues for entertaining family and friends.

Other facilities provided are a tennis court, half basketball court, timber decks with hammocks, sky gourmet area, mini theatre, terrace garden, water massage room, yoga deck and games room.

The development also has round-the-clock security with card access to units and smart home features installed within.

Alila2’s prime location is close to various amenities and hot spots like Batu Ferringhi, Pulau Tikus, Gurney Drive and George Town.

There are many eateries, schools, and retail shops in the vicinity, while shopping, banking, healthcare and other facilities can be found in nearby townships.
