Ridgefield Residences

Tropicana Corporation Bhd’s Ridgefield Residences is designed in line with its mission of redefining the art of living through enhanced living spaces. This gated and guarded community lies within the 199-acre Tropicana Heights master plan development in Semenyih, Selangor.

Ridgefield comprises 40 semi-D homes and 178 units of townhouses. The three-storey semi-Ds come with double volume living and dining areas, a rainwater harvesting system and panoramic views of the surroundings. The three- and four-storey townhouses sport an elegant and contemporary façade and a 25-foot-wide frontage, with park or lake views. The townhouses were designed for spacious built-up and maximum land efficiency.

The site is woven together using strategic layouts and orientation to maximise views of the 16-acre central park, the highlight of the overall development. Ninety-two homes, or about 42 per cent of the total units, have a direct line of sight of the central park, while efficient placement minimises the number of east/west-facing units.

An 80-foot-wide linear park is integrated with continuous meandering walkways and jogging tracks, which allow pedestrian-friendly traversing of the development. Facilities include playgrounds, a management office, and a multipurpose hall with a dynamic roof form, among others. These allow for a vibrant mix of activities to foster a strong sense of community within a secure environment.

The entire master plan is built on a former golf course, which can be undulating. Ridgefield’s site slopes down gently from the north-eastern side towards the south-western side, with a difference of 6.3 metres in levels. The layouts of the buildings have been thoroughly studied, and the four-storey townhouses are carefully positioned to negotiate the terrain, achieving a balanced cut and fill throughout the site.

In line with the developer’s sustainability policy, all materials used are sourced locally wherever possible. Heavy investments in road infrastructure and the central park have been made to improve connectivity and quality of life.
