Setia Ecohill

The long awaited Setia Ecohill terrace, semi-D and bungalow wait is finally over on 11 October 2013 when the registrant got a surprise sms message from the Setia Ecohill group as early as 6.46 am. Instead of usual stance of balloting, they adopted the first-come-first serve sales procedure with interested registrants only needs to provide RM20K cheque bearing name Setia Ecohill Sdn Bhd. Crowds congregated in as early as 7 am with the number breaching 401 out of 428 units offered for terrace by 10.30 am. By noon all terraces were sold out including 100 reserved purchasers for dropout units. The Setia Ecohill management has taken very good effort to keep the launching as discreetly as possible with most of their staff not even aware of the launch. We were told that even the food caterer was told to prepare food in very short notice.

In short, the launch of Setia Ecohill caught everyone by surprise. Anyway, the selling process was done in systematic and organized manner with barcode system implemented for electronic booking but we have to endure long wait for the staff for the processing part. The first day of purchase was restricted to booking and the second day was for unit selection. The restricted queue and booking area helps to prevent chaotic finger mapping or multiple units reservation by unscrupulous individual. Each purchaser was allowed only one unit and allocated with a barcode. They were not allowed to change their unit once the scanning was done into the computerised system.

Key informaton on Setia EcoHill

Setia Ecohill has a total area of 753 acres of freehold land with planned 673 acre of township with facilities and Setia has pledged 80 acres for parkland with greeneries. Setia Ecohill is a thoughtfully planned eco township with a low density of less than 10 units per acre. Situated between Jalan bangi and Jalan Semenyih, Setia Ecohill is conveniently located opposite the Semenyih Tesco hypermarket, about 3 km away from Semenyih town or 4 km from Broga hill and Nottingham University. At present, immediate access to Setia Ecohill is via Jalan Semenyih.

In the future LEKAS-Ecohill link will strategically connect the township to the LEKAS highway, making it accessible to SILK, PLUS and LDP. Based on highway speed limit, the estimated travel time is 10 minutes to Bangi, 15 minutes to Kajang, 20 minutes to Cheras, 22 minutes to Putrajaya and 30 minutes to Kuala Lumpur. The whole plan was seem to have picked up from the previously successful Setia Alam. If Setia Alam overwhelming success was attributed by great number of rich Klang folks upgrading their abode, then Setia Ecohill will have to tap into the rich population of the quiet southern part of the Klang Valley which is unprecedented at this moment.

As the information is overwhelming the review shall be posted in two parts. Here we will cover terrace. Below is the snapshot of the terrace model and number of units offered for the public, associates and staff alike. Favourable units having desirable number based on superstition, south-facing and facing waterways are dearer by RM3K and RM5K. Corner lot pricing is more expensive by RM120K for extra land area of 15 feet or RM150K for extra land area of 20 feet. Semi-D and bungalow residents have the option to join the clubhouse membership by paying monthly fees which is unfinalised at this time of writing.
