Berjaya Land Berhad (“BLand”) celebrated the Grand Opening of The Tropika Bukit Jalil Commercial yesterday which is set to become a bustling hotspot in the locality. The Tropika Bukit Jalil Commercial is the commercial component of The Tropika Bukit Jalil, a 6.5-acre freehold mixed development by BLand sandwiched between two lushly landscaped green lungs, namely the Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Resort and Bukit Jalil Recreational Park. 

The grand opening of The Tropika Bukit Jalil Commercial was signified by a ribbon-cutting ceremony graced by Mr. Syed Ali Shahul Hameed, Deputy Chairman of BLand and Berjaya Corporation Berhad Joint Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Zin, Chief Executive Officer of BLand, Mr Tan Tee Ming, Executive Director of BLand, Ms Adelene Foo, Chief Executive Officer of Trendcell Sdn Bhd which operates Jaya Grocer (anchor tenant) together with the representatives of other tenants including Mr Calvin Shun, Founder of Osso Bone Care, Mr Jayagobi Shanmugam, Director of Anytime Fitness, and Mr Vince Chow, Founder of Oomph Café & Bar.

The Tropika Bukit Jalil also differentiates itself from other developments with its GreenRE certification, which is in line with BLand’s emphasis on sustainable development. The Tropika Bukit Jalil Commercial consists of 9 units of double-storey shop lots and 11 retail units which aims to cater to the daily needs of the residents in the surrounding neighbourhood. 

“The Tropika Bukit Jalil demonstrates BLand’s continuous commitment to building not only homes but also a thriving community that gathers people from all walks of life to experience a truly inspiring lifestyle for our buyers,” Mr Syed Ali shared.
