Redefining coastal living : The new SOHOs @ Miri Times Square

Urban convenience meets seaside-living at SOHOs @ Miri Times Square.

Wake up to a magnificent view of the sunrise over the South China Sea, and grab a coffee to go from a cafe at Miri Times Square before heading off to work. At the close of day, sit down for a sunset dinner, followed by a relaxing stroll with your family around the 15.7-acre Miri Central Park.

Beachfront living has never been easier with the arrival of SOHOs @ Miri Times Square. Located at Tanjung Court, the SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) development presents the final phase of the bustling Miri Times Square at Marina ParkCity, Miri’s only master-planned waterfront township at the central business district. Like all ParkCity Group’s offerings, Marina ParkCity epitomises the same DNA of Diverse Communities, Seamless Connectivity and Thoughtful Conveniences – the core values that have built ParkCity Group into a household brand.

Miri Times Square reflects ParkCity Group’s community-centric ethos, with four distinctive phases – Brooke Gateway, Victoria Plaza, Kenyalang Corner and Tanjung Court – offering vibrant options to live, work and play in a centralised space.

Situated within the business and financial hub of Miri, SOHOs @ Miri Times Square elevates the typical concept of SOHO by offering urban conveniences along with seaside living right at your doorstep. With a diverse mix of banks, government agencies, corporate offices, pharmacies, eateries and clinics as neighbouring tenants, businesses in Miri Times Square enjoy a ready catchment of customers.

SOHOs @ Miri Times Square features four levels of 220 units with built-ups ranging from 485 sq ft to 958 sq ft. Inspired by the American strip mall, the design of the SOHOs @ Miri Times Square features motor-court-fronting shops with double-volume space and mezzanine flooring, allowing for wider retail frontage and increased footfall around the block.

Great investment potential

Boasting an attractive location at the heart of Marina ParkCity, well-maintained facilities and a lively waterfront atmosphere, SOHOs @ Miri Times Square offers investors, business owners and residents alike an unparalleled investment opportunity.

Wong, a partner of The Coffee Code cafe, decided to launch its Miri outlet at Miri Times Square in 2022 because of its strategic location.

“Miri Times Square was our first and single choice. We are very satisfied with the cafe’s location within the plaza and adjacent to the future Shell Upstream Headquarters,” said Wong, who currently runs five The Coffee Code outlets across Sarawak.

Wong credited the management of Miri Times Square for regulations that help maintain the cleanliness and overall condition of the premises, as well as allowing business owners to display advertisements to promote their businesses.

Frank Chuo, director of True Label Pharmacy, was attracted to Miri Times Square’s modern design and amenities, as well as the master-planned layout.

“Miri Times Square is more well planned compared to other conventional commercial developments, reminiscent of Plaza Arkadia at Desa ParkCity, Kuala Lumpur, with major banks and modern facilities at common areas,” said Chuo. 

For Chong, a sales representative for a listed company in his 40s, who recently purchased a SOHO unit, Miri Times Square offers an unbeatable location, as well as the flexibility of either investing into his personal home or for rental income. Either way, a SOHO would diversify his long-term investment portfolio of different property types.

Convenience was also the clincher for Chong. Besides having direct access to shops below, SOHOs @ Miri Times Square comes in a compact size, making the space much more manageable.

“Less is indeed more – a well-planned, compact living space can simplify our lifestyle, adding to efficiency and convenience,”  said Chong.
