Chief executive officer and managing director Datu Soam Heng Choon said:"We are going to launch the "Canal City" in the Klang Valley middle of next year.
"So, we are going on a road show for the launch (of the project) may be by the beginning of the year."It was called the Canal City last time, but we are going out there (during the roadshow) to give it a rebranding," he told Bernama today.
The project with a gross development value of more than RM10 billion will be sprawled over 800 hectares at the back of the Kota Kemuning and Kota Permai Golf Course in Shah Alam, Selangor.
"The design will be based on the green city concept. It is one of the the first green township that we are developing and the project will be one of the first few big green townships in Malaysia" he added.
Soam said the project, comprising a mixed township of commercial and residential components, would be fully completed within 12 and 15 years.

PUCHONG (Nov 18): More than 80% of the first block of The Wharf Residence serviced apartments at The Wharf commercial development in Taman Tasik Prima, Puchong, has been taken up.
Officially launched last Saturday, The Wharf Residence comprises three high-rise towers with 1,002 units of serviced apartments. Developer Bolton Bhd launched the first block of 334 units with a gross development value (GDV) of RM105 million.
The units have built-ups of 795 sq ft to 1,173 sq ft with 2- or 3+1-bedroom units at prices from RM275,130.
The Wharf Residence offers purchasers full condo facilities, including a swimming pool, children's pool, gymnasium, playground, yoga zone, jogging track and a lush landscaped garden. Another unique feature is the external storage room for each unit located on the same floor as the unit.
According to Datuk Azman Yahya, executive chairman of Bolton, Taman Tasik Prima has emerged as one of the preferred townships in Puchong on the strength of its meticulous planning and innovative products.
"At Bolton, we continue to push the envelope in terms of creativity and innovation," Azman said. "What we are launching is based on thorough market research of what consumers want to see in apartment living. As a result, I am very pleased to announce that we sold 70% of the units in the first tower prior to the launch."
Bolton began developing Taman Tasik Prima, an integrated township of mixed residential and commercial projects built around a 200-acre lake, some 10 years ago.
"When we first began developing Taman Tasik Prima, we had planned to achieve RM500 million in terms of GDV. Today, Taman Tasik Prima's GDV is in excess of RM1 billion, with The Wharf development itself being valued at more than RM500 million," said Azman.
The Wharf is the township's commercial centre that sits on 15 acres of leasehold land within the 345-acre township. The integrated development comprises boutique showroom offices, flexi-office suites, the serviced apartments and a mall.
The first component of The Wharf, the BizWalk, made up of 32 boutique three-storey showroom office units priced at RM2.2 million each, was launched in August last year. These units are sold out.
Azman added that Bolton plans to follow up on this success with the upcoming launch of the flexi-suites, described as a "versatile two-in-one commercial offering."
The mall is expected to be completed by 2013. "The mall will further strengthen the appeal of The Wharf Residence. It has a gross floor area of 506,510 sq ft and 1,296 parking bays. There will be a link bridge from the apartments to the mall, providing integrated convenience to the residents," said Azman.
He said Bolton is confident the remaining units of the first block will be snapped up before the year ends.
Bolton has been developing properties since 1964. Its completed developments include Taman Midah in Cheras and The Tijiani in Bukit Tunku. Bolton has built a reputation for its residential, retail, industrial and commercial properties cementing itself as one of the oldest and most established developers in Malaysia.
