Twelve awards winner, The Haven, recently held an event to celebrate the completion of its first of three Lakeside Residency Towers, the Acacia, together with its other completed support amenities which include the clubhouse, swimming pool and jogging track.
The event was royally graced by the presence of their Highnesses the Raja Muda of Perak, Raja Nazrin Shah and Raja Puan Besar of Perak Tuanku Zara Salim. Also present was State Exco for Local Government Dato’ Dr Mah Hang Soon, State Secretary Dato’ Abdul Puhat and Ipoh Mayor Dato’ Roshidi Hashim.
The Haven CEO, Mr Peter Chan, in his address, thanked the local authorities for their continuous support extended throughout the development of the project. Chan also acknowledged his appreciation to the purchasers of the units for displaying their “discerning perception, love of nature and trust” in their purchase.
The Haven was officially launched in 2011 as a world-class luxury condominium amid much scepticism of the development’s desirability and viability for Ipoh. Nevertheless, Chan pushed forward promoting the project together with Ipoh as “The Best Vacation and Retirement Location”. Additionally, The Haven’s location amidst a pristine green location with its own millions-year-old limestone hill, a 140-foot karst formation rising from the crystal clear lake (since named Rockhaven), was a strong marketing point.
Combined with Chan’s insistence on quality, The Haven has garnered 12 local and international prestigious awards, the latest being “Best Condo Malaysia”.
Chan’s attention to detail also extended to the night’s event as guests were ushered to their seats by ‘Angels’ and Raja Nazrin was presented the key to light up the completed Acacia block by a ‘Mermaid in the Lake” and officiate its completion. Three of the early buyers of the units were then presented the keys to their apartments.
As the guests went about their dinner, they were serenaded by the Perak Philharmonic Orchestra led by conductor Eugene Pook. After dinner, guests were seen strolling around the lake on the completed walkway.
Based on the night’s activities, all of Chan’s efforts and vision were realised. Eighty five per cent of the three towers have been sold while the remaining two towers Banyan and Cycas are expected to be completed by August this year, six months ahead of schedule.
Even though only one block is completed, it is fair to state that The Haven has arrived.
