The on-going Kwasa Damansara Township development is aspire to be a township development with an initiative to unlock the land value and spur development in the region, and demands a high quality built environment. The township development strategy has considered a number of sustainable elements such as landscape and ecology, water, waste, green infrastructure, green buildings, green mobility and green energy. The key design objective for the proposed development is to create a new focal point that reflects the township of a 21st Century; one that is green, connected and has a sense of place making. The Urban Design Guidelines was prepared to guide and assist all the stakeholder contribution towards a well coordinated development and high quality public realm and build environment. In doing so, one of the initiatives was to formulate the long term solution for the flooding, drainage and stormwater related issues by urban stormwater management. By integrating stormwater management planning with landscape and environmental planning, it will add aesthetic and recreational values to the water amenities. The township development is planned to become a showpiece of the urban stormwater management for the region.
