SEREMBAN 2 by IJM Land is a thriving self-contained township with a tight-knit community in Negri Sembilan.

Spanning 1,537ha, the township is currently home to a population of more than 62,000 people.

To mark its 25th anniversary this year, IJM Land looks back on how its continuous planning and development over the decades have impacted the lives of residents within the award-winning township.

Seremban 2 is young, compared to many other townships. Despite this, it has undergone major transformations over two decades.

Just 25 years ago, the site of the yet-to-be-developed Seremban 2 was a barren parcel of agricultural land with very little value appreciation in the local property market.

When IJM Land stepped in circa 1995, the transformation started and in no time, Seremban 2 was formed. The township became more integrated, harmonised and sustainable.

Housebuyers became attracted to the vibrant scene that brought along job opportunities and social services. It has now become the most progressive township in the state and serves as the southern gateway to the Klang Valley.

While Seremban is known for its long-standing delicacies from different cultures, Seremban 2 is also no stranger to food lovers from in and around the township.

Younger crowds who are into the latest food hypes will find the township a place filled with Instagrammable cafes to indulge in premium coffee drinks and snacks.

Bubble tea lovers can get their routine fix at multiple bubble tea outlets in the township.

As for cuisines, Seremban 2 offers a multitude of choices ranging from Asian selections such as Thai, Chinese, Korean and Japanese, as well as European like Italian food.

Residents in Seremban 2 can utilise a toll-free road that connects the township to Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 located 30km away.

Besides the toll-free road, Seremban 2 provides connectivity and accessibility through a series of well-networked expressways for its residents. The township is in close proximity to the North-South Highway, Elite and Lekas highways that provide quick access to central destinations such as Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.

The township’s strategic location also provides quick and easy access to major expressways, linking residents to key southern cities of Melaka and Johor Baru.

Currently at 70% completion and expected to house 100,000 residents upon maturity, Seremban 2 has seen an increase in demand for properties from Klang Valley housebuyers.

At present, 20% of the total residents originated from the greater Klang Valley area, and the numbers have been increasing steadily by the year as people seek to enjoy lower living cost and a balanced lifestyle.

Thanks to the shift in lifestyle priority, the younger generation are pursuing more conducive and tranquil living environments to raise their families.

As a result, many Seremban 2 residents have chosen to make the township their homes while commuting daily to Kuala Lumpur for work and school.

Recreational facilities are some of the biggest highlights of Seremban 2. In fostering healthy community-centric activities, the township features 18.2ha of dedicated park space sprawled with family-friendly facilities and recreational amenities.

The total park space is divided between the six-hectare S2 City Park and 12ha Hill Park. The centrepiece of the park is the massive 1.6ha lake which provides an idyllic and peaceful sense to the park and offers a beautiful setting for gazebos and picnics.

The 12ha Hill Park has its own nickname, Dinosaur Park, which features a mini dinosaur park complete with numerous dinosaur sculptures and features which were built to ignite children’s curiosity about the prehistoric world.

At 121.9m above sea level, Dinosaur Park offers panoramic views of the entire Seremban 2 township.

During these challenging times, owning a place to call home is more important than ever, and Seremban 2 by IJM Land wants to help housebuyers own their dream home by offering special deals for two of its developments — Rimbun Alam and Rimbun Impian.

IJM Land is giving its customers RM1,000 every month until vacant possession to help ease their journey to purchasing their dream home.

Besides that, there will be no legal fees, stamp duty and even downpayment, promising housebuyers a hassle-free and easy home-ownership plan.
