New housing option for those working in KL


KUALA LUMPUR: If the city is getting too cramped for you and you’re looking for a home that isn’t too far away from the Klang Valley, the new township of Bandar Sri Sendayan may be a viable option.

It’s being developed by Matrix Concepts Holdings Berhad and is located about 70 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur, about an hour’s drive away.

Built on 5,233 acres of land, the self-sustainable township has landed houses and an industrial park that is home to low-emission factories producing automotive parts and industrial supplies.

It also home to the Royal Malaysian Air Force’s new training and academic centre. There are also private and public primary and secondary schools.

In time, a private hospital, a convention centre and a shopping mall will be built.

Speaking to FMT at the Malaysia Property Expo 2017 (Mapex 2017), a Matrix representative said the response to Bandar Sri Sendayan had been good so far, with most units sold out even before they were completed.

“We’ve delivered 8,000 homes and there are another 7,000 being developed,” he said.

“I believe the response has been good because of the reasonable pricing. The prices for the homes begin from RM220 per square feet, whereas in the Klang Valley, the average is around RM500 to 800 per square feet.”

This means the cheapest house in Bandar Sri Sendayan, a double storey terrace unit of 2,400 square feet, costs about RM550,000.

Bandar Sri Sendayan lies outside the Klang Valley, but it is accessible through the North-South Expressway and the Kajang-Seremban Highway and is just five kilometres away from a proposed Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail station.

In recent years, increased demand for landed properties has seen the development of new townships close to Seremban, including Seremban 2 and Bandar Ainsdale.

Mapex 2017 is organised by the Real Estate Housing and Developers’ Association. It is held at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre until Sunday from 10am to 10pm.
