The three-storey commercial offices and retail outlets fronting Persiaran Cassia Barat will provide the much-needed provisions, F&B and other services for the students and campus community.
To cater for the accommodation needs of the students, 775 units of the serviced studio are placed in the two tower blocks, to be available in three types of layout design ranging from 46 square metres (500 square feet) to 67 square metres (726 square feet). The largest unit layout comes with dual-key feature.
Equipped with a swimming pool and elevated gymnasium at the top podium floor, the Utropolis Batu Kawan is poised to be the epitome of urban campus development with its contemporary design and lifestyle features. The vivacity of this development is further manifested in the use of feature panelling walls onto the façade of carpark podium.
