Eco World International Berhad (EcoWorld International) is a real estate developer listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad. Its core business involves property development outside Malaysia.

EcoWorld International’s entry into UK began with the EcoWorld-Ballymore joint venture that is currently developing three prime waterside residential projects in London. London City Island is designed as an arts and cultural destination, anchored by presence of the English National Ballet. Wardian London, which sits next to the Canary Wharf estate, features modern architecture with innovative landscaping, offering a sense of escape whilst remaining connected to the thriving city. Embassy Gardens, located in the heart of Nine Elms places emphasis on design and engineering craftsmanship with its “floating” transparent Sky Pool.
In 2018, EcoWorld London was launched giving EcoWorld International an immediate presence in the highly resilient UK mid-mainstream market and the fast-growing Build-to-Rent sub-sector. Third & Caird, Oxbow, Verdo-Kew Bridge, the latest additions in EcoWorld London’s portfolio, offer a suite of lifestyle amenities and are conveniently located near to train or tube stations, providing easy access to Central London.
In Australia, the Company’s maiden project of West Village, Parramatta offers views of Sydney’s CBD and Blue Mountains and is well-connected via transportation links. Yarra One, the company’s second project in Australia, is located in South Yarra, a suburb of Melbourne that houses some of the city’s most prestigious residential addresses. Designed by the award-winning Fender Katsalidis Architects, Yarra One promises to bring a breath of fresh air to the neighbourhood.
