EASTERN and Oriental (E&O) Bhd is proud to introduce ‘Arica’, its latest lifestyle venture, following the outstanding success of ‘The Meg’ project on Andaman Island.
Strategically nestled within the Gurney Green commercial precinct of the island, this freehold development will encompass a total of 380 meticulously crafted and fully furnished residences. The residences vary in size, ranging from 947 sqft to 1,259 sqft, offering two and three-bedroom layouts meticulously designed to cater to contemporary lifestyles.
Yet, what truly sets Arica apart is its unwavering commitment to embracing eco-conscious living and promoting sustainability. The multitude of eco-friendly attributes has resulted in both this property and its neighboring counterpart, The Meg, achieving GreenRE Platinum Provisional Certification in the Residential category. This recognition underscores E&O’s dedication to establishing a thriving green community.
According to the company’s Director of Development and Construction Management, Mr. Michael Tan, the incorporation of vertical gardens and outdoor spaces within the structure not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also fosters a sense of serenity and overall well-being. “Arica’s units feature high ceilings to maximise natural lighting and ample windows to facilitate ventilation, reducing the reliance on artificial lighting and air conditioning,” shared Tan.
Across Andaman Island, high-efficiency external lighting will be employed, requiring less energy and contributing to the reduction of the community’s carbon footprint. Given the island’s pedestrian and cyclist-friendly layout, with broad promenades and full accessibility, residents have the flexibility to explore various modes of transportation beyond cars.
“All these elements will significantly enhance the overall quality of life for Arica’s residents,” Tan emphasised. He believes that Arica’s appeal extends to a diverse range of buyers, from young families starting their journey to career-driven individuals seeking advancement, astute investors seeking stable returns, as well as downsisers and empty-nesters in pursuit of more manageable properties.
A thoughtfully curated selection of amenities has been designed to cater to these diverse target audiences. These amenities range from business lounges to daycare services, rooftop gardens, fitness areas, barbeque pits, a jacuzzi, lap pool, and more.
“Our vision is to create a neighbourhood that offers an elevated lifestyle for residents at every stage of their life’s journey. With over 36.42 hectares of green spaces on the island, residents can relish the outdoors in parks, playgrounds, and pocket gardens, all enhanced by the refreshing sea breeze and meticulous landscaping.
“Connectivity and accessibility are also integral to our development, with two bridges connecting Andaman Island and Penang Island to facilitate daily commutes. Furthermore, Arica’s apartments are delivered fully furnished with essential fittings, from built-in cabinets to appliances and furniture,” explained Tan. “This turnkey approach simplifies the move-in process and offers investors the opportunity to swiftly capitalise on rental opportunities and generate income.”
Residents choosing to make Arica their home will also benefit from the convenience provided by Temu, The Meg’s front retail space. Future phases will introduce commercial amenities encompassing workplaces, education, hospitality, health and wellness facilities, retail outlets, cafes, and restaurants.
“Andaman Island is envisioned as a meticulously designed and master-planned island that harmoniously blends serene island living with the vibrancy of urban life. Guided by a vision for future generations to thrive, we remain committed to the principles of green living and community building, reaffirming our dedication to creating a lifetime of exceptional living experiences,” concluded Tan.
