KL-KEPONG Property Development Sdn Bhd plans to launch another 1,000 acres of freehold land opposite its Desa Coalfields project in Sungai Buloh, Selangor to be developed into a mixed residential and commercial township.
General manager, Lim Peng Hong said the proposed development, which is part of the company's 7,000-acre land bank in the area, would have a good mixture of affordably priced semi-detached houses and bungalows, conventional terrace houses, super-link houses, a central business district and neighbourhood shops. The launch date has not been fixed.
Lim said the still unnamed development would also have some gated community type of housing.
“Our emphasis is on landed and affordable residential houses for the people,” he told StarBiz.
He said many people had relocated to this part of Selangor in recent years and envisaged that this trend would continue especially with various highway linkages being proposed and under construction in the area.
For example, he said Desa Coalfields is located just off an interchange from the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE).
This would make travelling more convenient for residents of Desa Coalfields as well as the surrounding areas.
“Although some people are buying houses in Desa Coalfields as a second home, many are buying to stay. Some 200 families have moved into our phase 1 houses in Desa Coalfields,” he said, adding that the 22ft x 65ft double-storey terrace houses in the earlier phases of Desa Coalfields were priced from only RM150,000.
He said the company is committed to giving value and quality to its buyers.
“Our signature tagline KLK-Value Homes assures quality finishes and good value for money in all our projects,” he said.
KL-Kepong Property Development Sdn Bhd is a wholly owned subsidiary of plantation group, Kuala Lumpur Kepong Bhd.
Meanwhile, the company has sold more than 40% of the first batch of 191 units of the Allamanda double-storey terrace houses in Desa Coalfields.
Sales and marketing manager, Angeline Lau said registrants snapped up these “early bird” units during a recent launch, adding that all the earlier phases of double-storey terrace houses had been sold.
“The design of the Allamanda home is practical and optimum use of space has been carefully considered.
All units face either the North or the South direction and no units are sited directly at T-junctions,” she added.
Features include extra family hall for all corner units, ceramic floor tiles for the living, dining, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and staircase; tiled skirting for living, dining and all bedrooms; wall tiles to ceiling height for all bathrooms; homogeneous tiles for the car porch, concrete counter top for the kitchen; vanity counter top basin for the master bathroom and metal framed doors and windows.
There is also a five feet high brick wall with mild steel grille perimeter fencing for the front and side.
“With these features, the Allamanda home is affordably priced from RM162,000. Our primary aim is to target young couples seeking to own their first home and those who prefer landed residential properties,” she said.
Lau said more than 750 double-storey terrace houses and double-storey shop offices have been launched with gross revenue of RM150 mil.
On completion, the 230-acre freehold Desa Coalfields will have 2,924 mixed residential and commercial units with a population of about 15,000. The development period will span over another three years and the project is targeted to achieve an estimated gross development value of RM390 mil.
This township will have comprehensive public amenities such as kindergartens, a primary school, multi-purpose community hall, market, food centre, shop offices, a police station and a commercial centre.
It will be extensively landscaped with parks, children's playgrounds and a 5km-jogging track.
Lau said several proposed highways would greatly ease travelling between Sungai Buloh and the city area.
They include the GCE that is scheduled for completion this year. It will have links to Jalan Kuala Selangor (Federal Road 54) to Shah Alam, near the Giant or Makro hypermarkets; the extension of the Penchala Link joining Jalan Sungai Buloh/Subang to the Guthrie Corridor Expressway and the Assam-Jawa Latar Expressway that will link up the West Coast Highway with the GCE at Kuang enroute to the North-Klang Valley Expressway.
She said the completion of the Universiti Teknologi Mara II and Universiti Selangor (currently under construction) in the vicinity of Sungai Buloh, the new Sungai Buloh General Hospital as well as the completion of the highways mentioned earlier would serve as catalysts for the potential growth of Sungai Buloh and its surrounding areas.
