Updated: Mayland's Dorsett Place Waterfront

Studio units specialists, Mayland is back with their latest launch, the Dorsett Place Waterfront at Subang Jaya's edge of the Subang Ria lake gardens. This parkland has been controversial. Owned by Sime Darby, they've been carving parts off the green lung park to construct the expansion of Subang Jaya Medical Center. And just before the 2008 elections, Sime Darby seeked a development order from the previous state government to develop up to 30% of the park for residential as well as commercial purposes. Of course, the land being Sime Darby's they think they have every right what they want to do with it. But not according to many purchasers of the few early phases of Subang Jaya. These purchasers claim that they were enticed by Sime to purchase their plots back then with the promise of this green lung. Now it seems the "promise" is to be broken when money is to be made. So, this became an election issue and the previous as well as current state government has decided to hold back on the approval to develop.

Mayland's plot is at the edge of this controversial park. Unlike Sime Darby, their plot is much more straightforward. Couple of years ago, Mayland took over the Sheraton Towers hotel and rebranded it as their trademark Grand Dorsett. This obviously gave them the valuable car park plot adjacent to the convention center of the hotel.



This car park is to be demolished and the serviced apartment takes over. Typical as Mayland be, there will be over 2,000 units built into these 2 towers. Little info is provided as yet, there will be 10 types:

TYPE A-410 SF
TYPE B1-500SF
TYPE B2-550SF
TYPE C1-543 SF
TYPE C2-588 SF
TYPE D1
TYPE D2
TYPE E1
TYPE E2
TYPE DUPLEX A-919 SF
TYPE DUPLEX B

Prices starting from about RM275k... that is after the 2% + 10% discount during the preview this weekend starting 23rd March 2012.
