Key takeaway: Sime Darby Property Bhd launched Temu, a lifestyle-centric commercial centre in City of Elmina, Shah Alam, on Monday (Dec 5), with an opening ceremony presided over by Sime Darby Property chief operating officer (township development) Appollo Leong, who was accompanied by City of Elmina's senior management team and representatives of Temu's anchor tenants.
Temu has a gross development value of RM159.4 million and consists of 70 units of two- and three-story shop offices with built-ups ranging from 3,074 to 7,753 square feet. During its 2019 launch, all units were fully occupied. Prices range from RM1.76 million to RM3.85 million.
"[Temu] is primed to be the new hangout spot in town and the township's point of convergence, given its strategic location in the booming Shah Alam North Corridor," Leong said in a press statement on Monday. This is a boon for businesses looking to open a shop or manage their operations without having to travel to other townships.
“For the residents of the City of Elmina, living nearby Temu provides greater ease of daily life, and as for entrepreneurs, setting up businesses at locations such as the City of Elmina is definitely a smart investment move,” he added.
According to the statement, the commercial centre is ideal for any type of establishment, including restaurants, department stores, grocers, banks, educational centres, bazaars, cafes, and fitness centres.
Temu's confirmed tenants include The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Pizza Hut, FamilyMart, Miami Chicken, Klinik RH Medic, R Pharmacy, and WLH Grocer, which will operate a one-acre hypermarket chain.
Furthermore, the developer has set aside 3,120 square metres of Temu's development area for green communal spaces. Tenants and visitors will also have access to over 690 parking spaces, bicycle parking, and a disabled-friendly ramp.
Elmina City is a 6,500-acre integrated township development that includes residential, commercial, and industrial developments, as well as parks and a forest reserve.
The Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH), Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), and Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway connect to the township (LATAR).
