Waterside homes win design nod


PINGGIRAN Bayou Village Homes, a 2.7-hectare enclave of 122 courtyard homes in the Malaysian town of Gelang Patah, has won the Fiabci Prix d’Excellence 2008 Award in the Best Residential category.


Past winners of the award include New York’s Trump World Tower, Australia’s Twin Waters Sunshine Coast and Singapore’s Caribbean Bay at Keppel.


Located 15 minutes away from the Second Link, Pinggiran Bayou is a double-gated, guarded community lining a linear waterway and fronting the Canal Park. It is a development within the Leisure Farm Resort owned and developed by Mulpha International Bhd. The Leisure Farm Resort aims to bring nature to the doorstep by setting its facilities against 113.3-ha of natural mangrove, canals, orchards and plantations. It has previously received several local and international awards recognising its commitment to being eco-friendly.


Also in the pipeline for the resort, which already includes a 36-hole championship golf course and a 10.1-ha equestrian and country club, is a five-star hotel and a marina complex for waterfront living. When completed, the 710.6-ha freehold property is set to have a population of 30,000 people. ‘We found that the social effect was better when you have a density of less than 22 units per acre, so we limited Pinggiran Bayou to 122 units in six acres, to have a better chance of creating a community,’ said Mulpha International’s property division general manager, Ronn Yong.
