(The Star) Bandar Bukit Raja’s growth value stays strong

Sime Darby Property’s showcase integrated and self-contained township, Bandar Bukit Raja (BBR), consists of a well-balanced mix of residential, commercial and industrial components.

Spanning 1,753.5ha in Klang, Selangor, the township still has more than 70% of land area for future developments.

Since its launch in 2002, BBR has become a residential development synonymous with growth in value.

Even after 14 years, it remains one of Klang’s most popular locations, drawing new residents and significant investment from both business and industrial sectors.

Despite the soft market, new projects within the township have been well-received.

The recently launched Persada double-storey link house development had an average take-up rate of 93%.

The four-bedroom units were priced from RM603,466 after a 7% bumiputra discount for intermediate lots measuring 1,787sq ft.

Meanwhile, the latest Casira 1 features 82 double-storey terrace houses and recorded a 60% take-up rate since its launch last month.

Designed to maximise natural lighting and ventilation, the four-bedroom houses are priced from RM681,888 with built-up areas ranging from 2,012sq ft to 2,311sq ft. They are slated for completion in May 2019.

In line with its philosophy of building sustainable communities, Sime Darby Property is committed to developing quality affordable housing in all its townships.

All affordable homes are generally in locations with access to various public transportation and facilities that provide better living standards for the community.

Developed under the Rumah Selangorku scheme within BBR, Seruling Apartment (launched in May 2016) and Serunai Apartment (launched in January this year) are equipped with ample space and built using quality materials.

“The Rumah Selangorku scheme reflects Sime Darby Property’s vision to be the number one sustainable property developer in Malaysia and beyond, offering a balanced development portfolio across all income groups,” said Mohd Idris.

Amenities within the township include retail shops, police station, fire station, mall, parks, playgrounds and the upcoming Columbia Asia Hospital Klang.

There are also primary and secondary schools as well as established higher education institutions such as Tenby International School, Universiti Industri Selangor and Universiti Teknologi Mara.

BBR is easily accessible via the Federal Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), New North Klang Straits Bypass and the upcoming West Coast Expressway (WCE).

Future development plans include a 50.6ha park called Taman Bandar, which is in the planning stage and will be rolled out in phases. The first phase covers 5.3ha and is expected to be completed by early 2020.

Residential projects to be launched within the next 12 months include two phases of double-storey terrace houses.

Projected to be completed by 2030 with an expected population of 82,000, BBR prides itself on having close-knit communities with 25 active residents associations within the township.
