Approximately RM14.5mil was invested to boost better connectivity, including the extension and widening of Jalan BKK Utama for leasehold development Kundang Estates.

GAMUDA Land has opened up an enhanced access road and a community hall for its Kundang Estates residents, in addition to an interconnected central park and bicycle lane.

The event was launched by Selayang MP William Leong Jee Keen and Kuang assemblyman Sallehudin Amiruddin.

The road enhancement of Jalan BKK Utama adds a total of 800m in length and 30.5m in width, which is also meant to benefit the existing Bandar Baru Kundang community nearby.

In addition, a 0.4ha space has been dedicated to house an 8,000sq ft community hall, which houses three badminton courts, a basketball court and six ping pong tables. The space, which is open to the public, can also be used as an event hall for the community for a fee.

Approximately RM14.5mil was invested to boost better connectivity, including the road extension and widening initiative for the leasehold development, which has a modern countryside living concept.

“It is Gamuda Land’s town-making principles that inspire us to create townships and developments that are mindfully planned for our community to call home. One aspect of good town-making is connecting people.

“Before we hand over our first phase, we ensure that connectivity, be it physical or virtual, as well as a central park where the community gathers and a community hall for sports and wellness are already in place,” said Kundang Estates general manager Lam Sew Chee.

Aside from physical connectivity, Kundang Estates residents also gain access to two years’ complimentary high speed broadband up to 100Mbps, basic Hypp TV and a phone upon vacant possession.

Sallehudin gave some suggestions on further beautification efforts for the community and added, “We encourage more developers to adopt and spearhead initiatives such as green and sustainable developments that are sensitive towards the environment, which have a proper road system and community spaces that promote better communal interaction to improve the overall well-being of our community.”

A 36ha low-density boutique residential development located in Kundang, Kundang Estates was launched in the fourth quarter of 2016 and has been handing over its phase one project consisting of 222 two-storey terrace houses in stages, starting December 2018.

The first phase includes the Anise, Citron and Valerian units, which have built-ups ranging from 1,773sq ft to 2,434sq ft. Prices start from RM702,800. Thus far, 40% of the units have been sold.

The key highlight of Kundang Estates is a 5.7ha interconnected central park, which features four thematic parks.

It includes a community farm for growing edible vegetables, fruits and herbs with professional guidance for local consumption, a lakeside garden, the Adventure Park with an extreme bike trail for thrill seekers, as well as the Esplanade, which gives a modern twist to the children’s playground with a flying fox and open air trampolines surrounded by greenery.

A gated-and-guarded community, the development also has a 24-hour CCTV and the Resident Management Mobile App to enable instant communication between the residents and the management team.

Moreover, it also adheres to the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design model, which sufficiently marks clear boundaries between public and private areas, as well as natural buffers between the pedestrian pathway and driveway to segregate pedestrians from moving vehicles among other street design innovations.

The development is also home to the 230-unit Rumah Selangorku Laman Adonis 1.
