Sime Darby Property’s first phase of ready-built factories in Elmina Business Park, Twin Factories, secured an impressive 70% take-up rate during its weekend launch recently.

28 out of 40 units, with a total Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM90.15 million, were booked during the weekend of 26 and 27 September. The response from the market was encouraging with prospective buyers queueing to select their preferred unit hours even before unit selections were open to the public.

The Twin Factories in City of Elmina, Shah Alam is made up of modern, freehold semi-detached factories with lot sizes of 70’ x 150’ and 70’ x 160’. It boasts elegant facades of fair-faced bricks and clean lines for a modern business image and a versatile tri-functional design that incorporates large, unobstructed warehouse space, a reception hall and office area with double volume ceiling height.

Other notable features include convenient front-loading access with motorised roller shutter, a high floor loading of 10kN/m2, 3-way opening for easy circulation of goods, a lift pit provision for future passenger lift installation and designated parking bays for trucks within the property’s compound. Factory owners can be assured of efficient transportation and logistics with a 30.5m wide road reserve and ample parking for passenger vehicles outside their premise.

With built-up areas from 6,000 sf to 6,450 sf, Twin Factories is ideal for warehousing, logistics, or production facilities. Pricing starts from RM3.04 million (after sales rebate and before Bumiputera discount), and purchasers can enjoy an easy ownership package as the Memorandum of Transfer (MOT) and Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA) legal fees are borne by the developer.

Sime Darby Property Group Managing Director Dato’ Azmir Merican noted that the traction gained by the first industrial project in Elmina Business Park in just one weekend is very encouraging, giving the Group a boost in confidence that upcoming projects could attract similar responses.

Azmir said: “Elmina Business Park is our vision of a full-fledged industrial park with a holistic industrial system. Its presence in the City of Elmina allows us to create a symbiotic relationship between the residential and industrial sections offering a place to live for those working here and create job opportunities for the growing population in and around our township.”

He added that the Group sees itself as a major player in industrial properties as there are not many new supplies. Existing industrial areas around the City of Elmina are either matured or overcrowded. As a well-organised and holistic industrial park, Elmina Business Park is the ideal location for those in neighbouring areas like Sungai Buloh or around Shah Alam, to shift their business to or start anew in a well-connected and managed area in the Klang Valley.

The Twin Factories is centrally located within Elmina Business Park, with easy access to Jalan Kuala Selangor and the Paya Jaras interchange on Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE).

Elmina Business Park is a 1,500-acre freehold, master-planned industrial estate, which incorporates the same wellness-centric approach as the City of Elmina. It is the first-of-its-kind masterpiece that is both business-centric and people-oriented.
