Dubbed as a smart garden city, the federal administrative capital of Putrajaya has been evolved from its humble beginning as a palm oil plantation into a world-class city. Located in the 25 kilometres south of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya now hosts the key government machinery, as well as interesting landmarks and places of tourist attraction.
In an endeavour to turn Putrajaya into a vibrant and dynamic administrative hub, many developments and activities have taken place across the city. As the city continues to grow, plenty of vacant lands has yet to be tapped into its full potential, including the 11.5 hectares of lakeside land adjacent to the lofty Steel Mosque of Precinct 3.
A master plan design has been mulled to introduce a commercial vibrancy into the scenic lake edge in Precinct 8, as a new and thriving mixed commercial lakeside development of Putrajaya. Capitalising the two-kilometre stretch of waterfront, it is seen as an opportunity to transform the cityscape by establishing a waterfront commercial interspersed with a series of landscape node and linear courtyard to expose the inner layer of commercial precinct.
Inspired by the water ripple, a small wave effect on the water surface, the development has been planned to coexist harmoniously with the surrounding contexts. The master plan introduces an array of commercial outlets from shop lots, a centralised entertainment centre and a block of office and hotel tower. While five blocks of residential towers also act as the stately backdrop for this waterfront development.
