Edumetro, previously known as Remix 2, was officially launched on 28 April this year at its sales gallery in Da Men Mall, Subang Jaya. The event saw many takers of the remaining units of SoFO at The New Duo.
Edumetro is a mixed use development consisting of four towers: Tower Suites A and B (The New Duo), Tower Suites C, Tower D, Tower E, a 3-storey podium and 4-storey basement car park. Before the launch, about 50% of The New Duo dual key units were already sold. Tower C was sold out by the original developer while Tower E will be launched soon.
Early this year, HCK Builders Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of HCK Capital Group Berhad, took over as the new developer of Empire Remix 2, which would have otherwise ended up as a stalled project. Edumetro will be in addition to our 3 education cities already under construction – edusentral at Setia Alam, edusphere at Cyberjaya and eduenclave at Ipoh. Another project, edudamansara, is expected to be also launched soon at Subang 2.
Instead of retaining the mall previously slated to occupy the entire podium, edumetro will be divided into three components – an education component, a unique co-working /lifestyle space and retail outlets.
The school will also occupy the 12-storey Tower D. It is expected to provide better investment value since there is already a glut in retail-commercial space. The smaller percentage of retail outlets retained in the podium shall provide support services for the occupants of edumetro as well as the parents and students of the school.
The construction works of the entire project will take about 28 months from scheduled commencement on 1st April and it is targeted for vacant possession delivery by March 2022. “With the rebranding, the estimated GDV of edumetro is about RM850 million, reflecting the property value in the surrounding areas,” said Mr Clifford Hii, Group Executive Director of HCK.
