Mah Sing Group Bhd launched the first 70 houses in its latest township in Rawang, M Aruna, on Sept 29. The 2-storey link homes, called Aster, measure 20ft by 60ft, with built-ups of 1,666 ft and above.

M Aruna is the developer’s third township in Rawang following M Residence 1 and M Residence 2. They jointly cover a total of 480 acres.

“With the success of M Residence 1 and M Residence 2, and the ready amenities and facilities, we are confident M Aruna will be the next success story for Mah Sing,” said CEO Datuk Ho Hon Sang at a media briefing on Sept 28.

Mah Sing is targeting first-time homebuyers, young families and upgraders for M Aruna. “Aster, the first phase, comprises affordable range homes for first-time homebuyers and young families. We knew that with our fast turnaround business model, we could meet the residential needs of the public,” Ho said.

“Mah Sing was one of the pioneer developers that ventured into Rawang. Back in 2011, we foresaw that with the continued urbanisation of Kuala Lumpur, residential land use was spreading out to the suburbs, including Rawang. Understanding the market demands, we planned and developed mixed integrated townships with a variety of landed properties for families and upgraders.”

According to Ho, M Aruna will be the first project by Mah Sing to use precast technology under the industrialised building system. The benefits include reduced construction time, reduced wastage of materials on site, a smaller labour force required and a cleaner site.

Sitting on a 96.7-acre leasehold tract, M Aruna has a gross development value of RM520 million. The residential township has 805 units including Rumah Selangorku. In the first phase, it will build a total of 117 units of Aster homes, with prices starting at RM506,000.

Phase 2 and Phase 3 will comprise 2-storey link units, measuring 20ft by 60ft and 20ft by 75ft. Other phases will include 3-storey townhouses under Rumah Selangorku and shophouses.

The township will feature a two-acre central park with a treehouse-themed playground, hammocks, jogging track, children’s bicycle park and a basketball half-court.

M Aruna is accessible via the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and KL–Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR Expressway), and is about 10km from the Rawang KTM Station.

Nearby amenities include AEON Rawang (5km away), Pasar Raya NSK (8km), Giant Hypermarket Rawang (10km) and Tesco Hypermarket Rawang (13km). Nearby educational facilities include SK Taman Desa, SJK Kota Emerald, SJK Kundang and SMK Bandar Tasik Puteri.

In conjunction with the launch of Aster, Mah Sing is offering early bird buyers a furnishing assist plan. Purchasers can choose various furnishing packages, ranging from RM15,000 to RM60,000, and get their homes furnished hassle-free. The packages include, among others, built-in wardrobes for three bedrooms, kitchen cabinet, lighting, air-conditioning in the living room and master bedroom, instant water heater and smart home system.
