WORLD CITIES DAY Industrial resort with infinite possibilities
WORLD Cities Day is to be commemorated today, as designated by the United Nations General Assembly by its 68/239 resolution.
The day aims to promote global urbanisation and encourage cooperation among countries.
It also hopes to contribute to the sustainable urban development the world over.
This year’s theme of “Innovative Governance, Open Cities” focuses on the importance of urbanisation in global development and social inclusion.
Award-winning i-Park@Senai Airport City seems to have heeded this call — by merging two separate worlds into one successful combination.
Developer AME Development Sdn Bhd was the first to introduce the unique industrial park development concept of fusing a typical industrial park blueprint with that of a resort; giving birth to i-Park.
Here, industrial activities, business operations are intertwined with healthy and relaxing lifestyle.
It will feature clubhouse facilities including gymnasium, swimming pool, studio, multifunctional designs and semi-detached ones, there are also niche and tailor build-to-suit factories for lease or sale, as well as bespoke-built units with clients’ own layouts and specifications.
This saves time in renovation and reduces unnecessary material wastage.
Sustainability and upholding of Green Building Index (GBI) standards can also be seen throughout i-Park.
i-Park@Senai Airport City is strategically located within Iskandar Malaysia, Flagship E and is surrounded by townships Skudai, Senai, Kulai and Impian Emas.
It is linked to the North-South Highway, Senai Desaru Expressway and Johor-Singapore Second Link Expressway or by air via the Senai International Airport and Singapore Changi Airport.
i-Park is near to major ports of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), Johor, Tanjung Langsat and Jurong.
Benchmarked for the future
AME Development has distinctively made the “i-Park” project recognisable as the most sustainable and well-managed industrial park in the region.
It is a role model for future industrial estates.
It is derived from the township concept of “work-&-play” and the planning incorporates numerous aspects of lifestyle right into the working environment.
This is achieved through AME’s comprehensive master planning, management and continuous research and development, to form a community and digitised operation aimed towards a smart, industrial park.
The “i-Park” is dedicated to the needs and demands of purchasers and occupants around the world.
i-Park@Senai Airport City is currently in its planning and construction stage, ready for operators to commence operations.
There are standard types of factories followed by tailormade buildings to be completed later this year.
i-Park@Senai Airport City is a holistically managed and a sustainable industrial park aimed towards the fourth industrial revolution.
It is set to attract industries such as pharmaceutical, R&D centres, electronics and electrical, manufacturing, precision engineering, logistics/warehouses, oil & gasrelated industries, food & beverage, processing plants and packaging internationally.
AME Development began as a boutique industrial developer in the early 90s and is experienced in creating high-quality industrial buildings tailored to multinational clients.
It developed its own “managed industrial park” with comprehensive infrastructure, gated and guarded with integrated amenities, using the “i-Park” brand for all its industrial park developments.
Since 2011, developer AME created the i-Park@SiLC and i-Park@Indahpura, which was recently awarded platinum winner by the Iskandar Malaysia Accolades (TIMA) 2016/2017 for being the “Most Conducive Workplace”.
Its own i-Park@Senai Airport City was recently awarded the “Five-Stars Best Industrial Development in Malaysia”, making it a city worthy of mention during the commemoration of World Cities Day.
