“Building orientation would take into consideration not only views offered by the sea and golf course but the sun as well. The most appropriate material for the developments would then be proposed for eventual use during construction.”
Khong added that amenities would be built within “comfortable walking or cycling distances for each phase of development. To encourage residents to adopt non-motorized forms of transport, appropriately designed tracks or footpaths are planned. The usage and promotion of environment-friendly vehicles will also be considered.”
