Langauge - VVIP Preview

What is VVIP Preview?

VVIP Preview is an invitation extended to interested buyers before its actual launch. Upon registration, you will be one of the first to visit the show flat before it is officially launched to the public and will have the priority to select unit(s) of your choice. The VVIP Preview allows the developer to gauge the response from the public before the project is officially launched. Therefore, VVIP Preview is the best time for the buyer to view, choose and book an unit as the prices during the official launch are generally higher.

Why VVIP Preview?

It is highly recommended for all buyers to register for the VVIP Preview. Priority booking greatly increase the chances to secure the unit of your choice as there may be other buyers also looking at same unit. It is a norm to have popular units (better stacks or facing) sold on the preview day. You can be assured that there are absolutely no obligations in this procedure. If you decided not to proceed with your purchase due to any reason, your cheque will be returned to you on the spot.

How does VVIP Preview works?

I will provide a personal presentation of your interested project and assist you in choosing your preferred stacks and storeys upon meeting up. I will fill in the authorization form on your behalf and make copies of buyer's Identity Card for registration of VVIP Preview. "Passport is also required for oversea project" Cheque will be collected during this time.

We will keep you updated and invite you back to the showflat on the day of Preview. Either we will proceed with the purchase for you if you are satisfied with the unit or we will return you your cheque at the showroom. There is absolutely no obligation and it only serves to benefit you as a potential buyer.

To register for VVIP Preview Invitation, kindly go to the "Contact" page.

Iskandar Malaysia - Columbia Asia

Columbia Asia

Columbia Asia, owned by the principals of Columbia Pacific Group, Washington developer and operator of health care and retirement housing facilities throughout the world, is an international private healthcare company incorporated in Malaysia in 1996. Its first medical facility, the Columbia Asia Extended Care Hospital-Shah Alam was launched in Malaysia in 1998. Now, the company has 23 healthcare facilities (hospitals, clinics and extended care facilities) in four countries namely Malaysia, India, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Columbia Asia Sdn Bhd is 30% owned by the Employee Provident Fund (EPF) and 70% by a US-based fund, the International Columbia USA LLC (ICU), which comprise over 150 individual and institutional investors.

Leading the way in private healthcare trends, Columbia Asia offers optimum and affordable medical services through its community hospitals and clinics. With modern amenities and highly trained doctors and nurses, these hospitals are located in residential areas, making quality private healthcare more accessible and efficient for patients. New medical technologies decrease the level of invasive treatments, reducing the length of hospital stays. Moreover, rate structures are transparent and comparatively lower than the standard model for private healthcare. Each Columbia Asia medical facility also houses no more than 100 beds per hospital. The hospitals may be smaller in comparison to other private hospitals but the concept behind its simplicity leads the way towards healthcare trends in the future – efficient, accessible and cost-effective. As such, its objective is to provide communities with effective healthcare at excellent value, and to be the preferred choice for families and businesses.
