More high density projects
Another high density project is in the pipeline in our neighbourhood. In fact, there are two. The first is a 12-storey block of service apartments located at the intersection of Jalan PJU 1A/1 and 1A/20, diagonally across from Seri Pilmoor. It has 314 units so although it is a high density project, it is not as dense as the other two projects further down the road.
A few years ago, residents here have organized signature campaigns as well as protests against high density projects in this neighbourhood. Unfortunately, there was no success as MBPJ has decided the area we are in are zoned for developments. So we have to get used to our quiet neighbourhood become busier, noisier and congested over time.
This project is by our master developer, Sime Darby Property and this will be her second high rise high density project in this neighbourhood, Ara Hill being the first. There are other high rise projects in this neighbourhood too including the failed Platinum but they are not built by Sime Darby Property. The land they stood in were originally from our master developer but was given to the State under obligations. During the years, something happened and the title changed hands multiple times.
Do we want to protest this latest high density project? Probably not. This latest project could very well be in the original master plan. Looking at the bigger picture, there is a very good mix of low density bungalows, semi-Ds and double storey link houses so adding a second high density service apartments is a good balance. The only spoil spot is the presence of the other 3 alien high density projects.
Where is the second project then? If you are observant, you may have noticed some buntings in our neighbourhood by the developer of Bandar Utama. They plan to launch a project near our neighbourhood in a couple of months. The project will be serviced apartments located near Citta Mall.
If you are into property investment, these two projects will probably wet your appetite.Share on Facebook
