Lively collaboration for Gamuda's latest development
GAMUDA Land has entered into partnership with six parties to liven up its Gamuda Cove township launched in September.
The developer announced that a 20ha recreational area called the Discovery Park will become its first tourism and hangout spot within Gamuda Cove.
Gamuda Land recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the six partners at Kota Permai Golf and Country Club, Kota Kemuning.
Signing the MoU with Gamuda Land's chief executive officer Ngan Chee Meng were Invade chief executive officer Kent Teo, Kitchen Mafia founder Sherson Lian, Aerophile Group general manager Matthieu Gobbi, Blastarcars Malaysia chief executive officer John Wong Tue King, AKA Balloon chief executive officer Nur Izzati Khairudin and Caravan Serai managing director Chua Teik Huang.
They will provide key activities in the Discovery park, such as Blastacars Drift Kart, the Aerobar, glamour camping (glamping) as well as hot air balloon rides.
Discovery Park is designed as the next tourism and entertainment centre for the Southern Klang Valley and will offer thrills, fun, spectacular sights and even nature spots.
Ngan said when the Gamuda Cove project started about two years ago, "one of the things we realised is we need to bring vibrancy to our townships and this (Discovery Park) is the best way to bring in entertainment and leisure."
Ngan also shared that Gamuda Cove is the culmination of a 20-year experience of learning from all its projects.
"Most importantly," he added, "is bringing new elements that make sense to new generations.
"We have a nice range of Malaysian food that will be very attractive to a lot of tourists.
"So we see that opportunity to showcase Malaysian hospitality and what Malaysia has to offer. We'll bring many things Malaysian into the Discovery Park."
As a taste of the excitement to come, AKA Balloon prepared two tethered hot air balloons on the golfing greens for VIPs and guests to experience a hot air balloon ride.
Ngan said Gamuda Cove provided an opportunity as it lies at the gateway of Kuala Lumpur where tourists come and go, as well as those travelling north and south of Malaysia.
"We seek to make it more vibrant, which will bring in a lot of people, a lot of footfall, a lot of activities that at the end, will make sense for people to stay there, to make a home of the place.
"Their home will become part of the leisure, entertainment and work within the area," he said.
Ngan also shared that as the Discovery Park is part of the bigger business centre district of Gamuda Cove, there will be opportunities to add other components such as hotels, retirement homes and education institutions like universities.
He also said companies can become inspired by the development and choose to set up businesses in Malaysia to invest.
"Hopefully they will make an address in Gamuda Cove. That's our ultimate aim," he added.
