To be located at Gopeng, Perak is currently in the process of building the first ever motor sport-theme modern integrated township development in Malaysia called the T-City; a joint project between Goodland Group Limited and Citrine Capital Pte Ltd.
The RM15.1 billion project encompasses a total of 456 acres and once completed, T-City will have a few main key elements which include motor sport facilities, entertainment hub, an automotive centre, retail and F&B outlets, hotels including service apartments and condominiums, a land transport terminal, a school, parks and a hospital.
According to Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri DiRaja Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, the project will help Perak to capture growth opportunities and meet the rising expectations of the tourism market.
“For three consecutive years, Perak has recorded the highest arrival of domestic tourists compared to other states. The recent accolade that Lonely Planet gave Perak by listing it in their ‘Must Visit Region 2017’, it will hopefully boost up the number of international tourists too,” said Zambry during the groundbreaking ceremony of T-City recently in Gopeng.
During the ceremony, Executive Chairman for Goodland Group Limited, Tan Chee Heng believed that T-City will generate economic multipliers to boost the socio economic prosperity of the state and national economy.
“While the motor-sport facilities will be the catalyst of T-City, the main business driver for the implementation of Phase 1 will be the automotive centre which will be positioned as Malaysia’s largest business venue for new and pre-owned cars, auto parts and service centres,” said Tan.
The event also saw Goodland Group Limited donate RM50,000 to Yayasan Bina Upaya Darul Ridzuan (YBU).
