Buoyed by the overwhelming response to its education-themed mixed development project edusentral, HCK Capital Group Bhd is set to launch another “education city” project called edusphere@Cyberjaya soon.

Located in the heart of the purpose-built smart city, edusphere has a gross development value (GDV) of RM1.8 bil.

It sits on a 9.34ha freehold plot with a commercial title and comprises six towers of service suites, an office tower and 66 units of retail shoplots, besides the tertiary education component.

Edusphere@Cyberjaya incorporates an education component in the form of the Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences (CUCMS), which has a capacity of up to 12,000 students.

HCK Capital Group executive director Clifford Hii says the decision to launch edusphere at a time when many other developers were slowing down reflected the group’s confidence in the project’s viability.
