Bina Puri Holdings Bhd introduced The Valley @ Bentong, Pahang, on March 3. Established by its subsidiary, Karak Land Sdn Bhd, the agriculture-based venture will have homesteads and farms, and occupy 1,600 acres. With a gross advancement worth of RM152.7 million, it is set to be a homesteading neighborhood.
According to Bina Puri group executive director Datuk Matthew Tee, The Valley is going to comprise 4 elements or zones. The first, called “The Kerau”, will cover 600 acres – divided into Stages 1 and 2– and feature homesteads. It is called after Sungai Kerau, which streams from the west to the east of the location that is being developed.
Bina Puri acquired the land in 2013 and soft-launched Kerau Stage 1 in December 2016 with an overall of 158 lots. Each lot has a land area of one to 2 acres, or 43,560 to 87,120 sq ft.
Amenities and infrastructure such as a clubhouse, roads, roadways and drain supply will be provided by the developer but the landowners will have to undertake the carry out of the physical structures on their parcel themselves.
Aside from the homestead development, they have also assigned about 230 acres for cash crops and a durian plantation at Zone 2. Stage 1 (100 acres) will have 2,600 trees while Stage 2 (100 acres) will have 2,500. The very first harvest is expected within 5 to six years.
For Zones 3 and 4, we have actually sold 433 acres of the leasehold land and the balance 333 acres will be scheduled for potential developments.
The Valley is an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, with simple access to the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway.
