The Glades by Sime Darby Property Berhad (“Sime Darby Property or “Company”) is a 56-acre development with unique environment of peace and tranquility, nestled within the self-contained township of Putra Heights in Subang Jaya. Master-planned with a low density of only eight units per acre, the freehold, gated-and-guarded enclave has excellent connectivity and accessibility to commercial hotspots, hospitals, international schools, and public transportation hubs.

A desirable location and sound masterplan are just some of the reasons why The Alcove, The Glades’ first condominium development, achieved 100% take-up for all 72 units during the recent pandemic. The low density, 6-storey development resonated well with families and ‘down-sizers’ looking for a balance of nature and convenience with a tropical resort lifestyle. In fact, The Glades’ irresistible appeal is also evidenced by the strong demand for The Residences, the luxurious 3- storey bungalows that were launched during the pandemic, and now with only five units left.

Hot on the heels of such success stories, Sime Darby Property is now previewing ‘The Serenade’, its final condominium offering within The Glades.

Sime Darby Property Group Managing Director, Dato’ Azmir Merican said that the exclusive project reflects the Company’s customer-first approach and meticulous attention to detail when it comes to design and development.

“When designing The Serenade, we clearly identified our potential customers and extensively researched their wants and needs, as well as how they would interact with spaces on a day-to-day basis. We saw that post-pandemic, homeowners are looking for larger floorplans with layouts that offer a clear separation of personal, work, and family spaces. In addition, green areas, pocket parks, and recreational features such as jogging and cycling tracks and fitness facilities are more important than ever as health and wellness take a stronger precedence in our lives,” he said.

Units within The Serenade offer larger build-ups ranging from 1,335 sq. ft. to 2,465 SF. Image from: Sime Darby Property

In line with these findings, The Serenade offers larger build-ups ranging from 1,335 sq. ft. to 2,465 sq. ft., perfect for families who want to upgrade as well as empty-nesters looking to downsize from a landed home. Rooms are designed to easily convert into home offices, and 20 select units come with their own private garden. Type A offers three bedrooms and three bathrooms while Types B & C offer 3+1 bedrooms and four bathrooms. Type D and E offer 4+1 bedrooms with five bathrooms and feature a modern dual key design appealing to multi-generational families. Selected Type C units also come with indoor-outdoor ‘lanai’ areas that overlook the landscaped greenery of the central Garden Plaza.

The development was planned with exclusivity in mind, hence the low density of 122 units spread across five blocks, with only two, four or six units per floor. The building design maximises natural lighting and ventilation while maintaining privacy; and incorporates sustainability and innovation features such as rainwater harvesting, automated waste collection system and children with disabilities-friendly playground.

All residents of The Serenade can look forward to the promise of resort-style living with access to The Glades Clubhouse, equipped with gym, sauna, jacuzzi, multi-purpose hall, tennis courts, as well as a stunning 50 metres infinity pool fronting an expansive view of tranquil waterways.

Prior to The Serenade, Sime Darby Property successfully launched two high-rise offerings last year, indicating that demand remains strong for high-rise developments in prime locations. Jendela Residences at KLGCC Resort saw 80% take-up for its first phase upon launch, while Maya Ara Residences in Ara Damansara saw an incredible 90% take up on the day of launch. With limited units available, as well as being The Glades’ final condominium offering, The Serenade could well be the last chance for lifestyle upgraders to live in this exclusive community at a relatively affordable price point.
