Sime Darby developed Elmina is to fulfil the desired lifestyle of the citizens
in Malaysia. Malaysian citizens especially those who were staying around the
city area were trying to find a place to stay, which could enjoy a work-life
balance in their daily life. This is because they had been facing with major
traffic jams with hectic schedules which made them even more stressful. Thus,
instead of staying in places that is full of cars and polluted noises, citizens
are more preferred to stay in housing areas that give them opportunity to spend
more time with their friends and families.

to go for a short morning walk or jog before heading to work. Instead of
travelling to parks that are far away from their house which is time consuming,
people who lives in Elmina is able to just reach the park without driving

citizen. City of Elmina had been holding a lot of healthy activities not only
for the citizens of Malaysia but also for people who are from other Countries
like Denmark, Philippines, etc. On December 2017, Sime Darby property had
organised Mountain Bike Jamboree in City of Elmina, this is because they wanted
to promote to the citizen to have a healthy lifestyle as well as promote on the
suitability of cycling in City of Elmina, which will indirectly promote
Malaysians to live in Elmina.
Not just these, Sime Darby Property
had also encourage residents and citizens to join any activities that were
being held in City of Elmina which includes Yoga session, healthy catering
session, planting sessions, etc and these sessions were being held in different
location in the township.
as every residential area these days are designed to raise the quality
lifestyle of the community, therefore, City of Elmina had also provided
amenities and vibrant commercial activities into Elmina which includes clinics,
shopping malls, banks, restaurants, etc. The most obvious of providing residents
