CREATING parks in housing estates is now quite the norm,  especially in huge townships or mixed developments, but some developers are now taking it to the next level.

These developers are investing time and money on researching, cataloguing and analysing the indigenous as well as migrating species of flora and fauna, which can be sustainably utilised to enhance the appeal of these parks as well as to protect and preserve them. 

For example, Eco World Development Group Bhd, which recently concluded the ecological study on its 566ha Eco Grandeur project, is looking at implementing sensible and eco-friendly residential and commercial hubs within the Eco Grandeur masterplan, says EcoWorld divisional general manager Ho Kwee Hong.

“EcoWorld intends to work with various local and overseas universities to conduct research  to identify the best practices in the context of Malaysian flora, fauna, social, economic and climatic characteristics.
