MITRALAND Group is investing RM11 million to develop the 3.2ha Lakepark @ Gravit8, its RM1.3 billion lifestyle integrated development in Port Klang, Selangor.
The Lakepark, which is a collaboration between Klang Municipal Council (MPK) and Mitraland, will feature a lush landscaped lake, integrated walkways as well as a jogging track and fitness stations, thereby offering residents and the public more recreational and outdoor opportunities.
Surrounding the Lakepark are themed serviced apartments, SoVos, retail mall, corporate office towers and a boutique hotel.
The Lakepark would also act as a water retention pond, said Mitraland chairman Datuk Johan Ariffin.
Mitraland would maintain the Lakepark at its own expense for five years before handing it over to the relevant authorities, said Johan after the ground-breaking ceremony officiated by MPK president Datuk Mohd Yasid Bidin in Port Klang here, recently.
Designed by Walrus Design, whose past works include the Kota Kemuning Wetlands, Desa Park City Central Park and Tropicana Metropark, Lakepark will combine elements of aesthetics and functionality that will appeal to young urbanites.
“Lakepark will enhance the value of our Gravit8 properties while introducing a perfect setting for community activities and leisure,” said Johan.
Meanwhile, Mitraland also contributed to the less fortunate during the event.
A total of eight charitable funds and organisations received donations worth RM90,000 from Mitraland.
The recipients were New Straits Times English Development Programme, Star Foundation, Sin Chew Foundation, Nanyang Press Foundation, The Edge Education Foundation, Lions Education Fund, Pertubuhan Al-Khaadem and Kiwanis Club TTDI.
