When it comes to landed homes, integrated high-rise developments, and green business parks, property developer EcoWorld is dedicated to completing one's living experience

Their portfolio includes everything property, from conventional townships that offer innovative home concepts to exciting commercial offerings.

One such product offering by EcoWorld, known as Co-Home, is a revolutionary idea of a hybrid landed living concept. Keep reading until the end of this article to find out more about Co-Home units.

With a total of 20 ongoing projects in the Klang Valley, Iskandar Malaysia, and Penang, you'll find that most EcoWorld developments are created with the consumer in mind, taking into account what homebuyers are looking for in a forever home.

For instance, if you're planning to stay in Johor, Eco Tropics is a great township that boasts breathtaking landscapes and a 30-acre community park

Watch the video below to see what Eco Tropics has to offer:

Nestled in the heart of Pasir Gudang, the gated and guarded, fully integrated, and self-sustaining township is connected to three major highways, making it easier for its residents to reach the main city. This includes the Pasir Gudang Highway, Senai Desaru Expressway, and the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) Expressway. 

As for surrounding amenities, getting your groceries will be a breeze, as Lotus's Hypermarket is just a stone's throw away. Those living with elderly parents who require frequent trips to the hospital will find that healthcare institutions such as KPJ Pasir Gudang Specialist Hospital and Regency Specialist Hospital are nearby, making it convenient for young and elderly families alike.

Like most EcoWorld townships, Eco Tropics is set to become a thriving township with plenty of conveniences to offer their residents.

Eco Tropics, along with other integrated townships, are all a reflection of EcoWorld's Design, Nature, and Art (DNA) campaign

From their majestic grand entrance statements and signature roundabouts, to their landscaped waterways, parks, and gazebos, the developer has made it a point to incorporate design, nature, and art elements throughout their townships.

Plus, their 'Together We Create The Best Lifestyle in Iskandar Malaysia' campaign aims to offer innovative products for both residents and entrepreneurs. From innovative home products with functional layouts to commercial and industrial spaces optimised for a business advantage, EcoWorld Iskandar Malaysia has something for young homeowners, growing families, or aspiring entrepreneurs. 

You'll be able to find what you're looking for and more, all within an EcoWorld signature township equipped with the best of Design, Nature, and Art.

Innovative homes such as Co-Home units are designed to address the two main needs of aspiring homebuyers; a landed living lifestyle and affordable living

Short for co-creation homes, it was also built to suit multi-generational households, all while preserving personal space between families.

Understanding the market needs, EcoWorld brought this concept to life and packaged it with attractive price points for young families and first-time homebuyers.

In case you were wondering, a Co-Home consists of one upper unit and one lower unit, where each family can separately own either unit. Malaysians who prefer having absolute privacy in their homes and do not wish to share their living spaces will find that owning a Co-Home unit comes with plenty of benefits.

So, how does it work? The two-storey terraced house allows up to two families to occupy either the upper or lower level.

For example, if you want to be close to your parents for peace of mind while ensuring privacy, you can choose to stay on the upper floor, while your parents stay on the bottom floor. This can be especially convenient for elderly parents' mobility without the risk of climbing stairs in their old age.

Co-Home units aren't limited to relatives, as you can also make arrangements with friends to purchase both storeys of a Co-Home, provided you agree on the preferred level. Or, if you're just looking for a unit for yourself, a Co-Home is a great way to get a landed property, at the fraction of the price!

In regards to its overall design, you'll find that most Co-Home units have a three-bedroom, two-bathroom layout, similar to a condominium

Aside from that, they also have spacious and practical layouts that are wider than a typical townhouse's 24ft to 26ft size. And you won't have to worry about parking space either, as a Co-Home can accommodate up to four parking lots, ensuring plenty of space for residents.

Basically, living in a Co-Home ensures you get to enjoy all the conveniences of a townhouse, double storey house, and condominium. ;) 

Those on the lookout for affordable landed freehold homes will be able to pay lower monthly instalments for their Co-Home unit

Having enough cash reserves to purchase a property is an issue most first-time homebuyers face, but it doesn't have to be that way. With Co-Home units, you can easily enjoy affordable living because it allows you to split the cost of a landed property.

For instance, the township of Eco Tropics houses a collection of Co-Home units with prices starting from RM350,000*. With monthly instalments for as low as RM1,300*, it's that much easier to get your hands on a landed property without breaking the bank.

*Terms and conditions apply.

The best part? These stratified units can be found in lush-filled and gated and guarded townships throughout Malaysia

With EcoWorld's townships, you'll get the added advantage of staying in townships that are away from the hustle and bustle of city life, all while feeling safe and secure in your home.  

Aside from providing innovative products such as Co-Home units, most EcoWorld townships are built with the consumer in mind. This includes incorporating plenty of green landscaping for a serene environment and nearby commercial lots, perfect for families who want to live in a peaceful and thriving neighbourhood.
