For over two decades, Gamuda Land has been building up a proven track record of delivering innovative developments and creating holistic, sustainable township communities – in Malaysia and across the region.
As a town maker, we create places that people will call home, want to be a part of, grow up and grow old in.
Making a Good Town
A town can mean different things to different people.
What’s important is that a town has to be about special places, great placemaking.
When we create great gathering places
When we lay out the parks and lakes to open up to each neighbourhood
When we apply architecture and craft beautiful streetscapes
When we have a town square that draws people together
We start to create a personality for the town.
So, when people move in and live there, they’ll experience a real difference.
They’ll get a feel for the place and want to be a part of it.
Listening To What the Land Has to Tell Us
An important part of our master planning is listening to what the land has to tell us.
Our land has blessed us with many resources – rolling terrain, beautiful hills, lush wetlands.
So, we are able to work with nature.
We bring the water that runs off the land to flow it into natural ravines between hills to create lakes.
We preserve the hills in our towns so we are able to have hilltop homes just as we have lakeside homes.
The trees that were there long before we came, we preserve them and only transplant if we need to.
As such, the essence of the place remains unchanged, only enhanced.
So, by listening to the land, it allows us to create enchanting opportunities.
When We Get The Places Right, The Town Works
So, we think not only of the home place. We think of the work place.
The play place.
The shopping place.
The park place.
The learning place.
We need mindful planning and to be able to bring all these places together thoughtfully.
They have to be organized around a ‘town square’, often by beautiful lakes with a waterfront and a promenade, to give the town a sense of place.
It’s our way of connecting you with friends and the community, with nature and with yourself.
A good town is a connected town
Town making is not just about construction.
To do it right, we have to think through the connectivity.
And there is an art to it.
There has to be an infrastructure masterplan
that ensures easy accessibility.
Right from your home to the highway
and all the neighbourhood stops in between.
To virtually connect people to one another is just as important.
So the masterplan has to have the right technology and solution.
As a town maker, we make decisions today
that affect people and that could be forever,
so you have to be very mindful in planning
It is our way to look at the details to make the town work.
A Town Is Community
The common ground for everyone in a town is the community.
Where people know one another
Where they live and play together
Where they look out for each other.
As a town maker, we are creating a place for everybody.
They can be growing families, retirees, young married couples, single adults and busy people in the workforce.
Because a town is all about people and diversity.
That is why our planning principles – from the masterplan to architectural design – allow for these interactions and promotes that connectivity to others. You will know your neighbours.
The streets are not just designed for cars, walkability and bike-ability are just as important to us.
When you walk out the front door, down your street and to the town square – we want you to experience a fascinating journey every time.
That’s the joy you have as a community in our towns.
Ultimately a happy community makes a good town.
And that is what’s important to us.
