DESA PARK CITY | Proposals, Projects & Construction Updates

Does anyone think this is a worthwhile investment, may it be the condo or houses? The plan of the township sounds promising, plus it's next to Country Heights. Thinking of buying a unit, but not sure of the developer's rep.

Welcome to the forums!

Desa Park City I tot is near Sri Damansara area? How can it be near Country Heights which is in Kajang?

Anyway the developer is kinda big and its showroom is very impressive. The concept and the houses are also very nice

But I personally wouldn't buy a unit there because I despise that area cause of the traffic! But that's just me haha.......

Sze, there is a Country Heights Damansara which is located on that hill just next to the ParkCity...

Agree with u there, man... The development as a whole is very classy and in a prestigious address... However, those ppl in the Govt have to do something about the traffic...

Thanks guys!
Yeah, agree with the traffic. But was just thinking of it as an investment. It should technically appreciate in value pretty well, no?
Anyway, too late, just paid booking fee.

I dunno....I am sure it would appreciate in price and if you're using it as an invesment I would think it is a good move. But I wouldn't wanna stay there ..........the traffic is unbearable be it weekdays or weekends....somemore on both ends - Selayang/Kepong corridor and Bandar Utama/PJ corridor. Then there is this problem that the place are toll-ridden (most of the exits are tolled-ways) like LDP and Penchala Link.

But I am amazed at the construction there man.....so many! I think PJ North is currently Malaysia's largest growth corridor with lotsa commercial and residential developments - just like Subang & Sunway during the 90s!

The govt is building many roads there already.....so it is high-time to extend a metro line there. None of our metro systems come close to that area (the closest being Putraline's Taman Bahagia & Kelana Jaya stations and that is pathetic!

That area is fast becoming like USJ.......45 minutes to get out to Federal Highway in the morning ....hope the govt do something bout it! ( hint...hint!......a metro line? )

I heard that the Govt is mulling over the proposed metro extension that was submitted by Subang MP Mr. Lee Hwa Beng...

If that is approved, both LRT lines will be reunited at some point in PJ... The two systems will form a loop with Starline extended through Bukit Jalil, then towards Puchong before going alongside the LDP and joining Putraline at Kelana Jaya station... Further extensions to Starline will be new lines in Cheras...

As for Putraline, a new line will be built from the Lembah Subang Depot that will go on towards Shah Alam with stops in Subang Jaya... The PJ side of Putraline will also be stretched towards TTDI, Bandar Utama, and PJ North... That should include the Desa ParkCity as well...

Yup.....that's the 'perfect' system BUT MP Lee's suggestion is only for the loop and had nothing on the extension to PJ North. The Cheras extension (branched out from Maluri Station) are mentioned in the KL Structure Plan 2020 so I guess it would be built soon......I duwan to wait till 2015 or something like that hehehehe

I thought both lines will be extended and eventually converge somewhere in Shah Alam. The MP didn't say anything about converging them somewhere in PJ.

I can't wait for the work on the Damasara-Cheras line to start. Hopefully this line will interface "strategically" with the rest of the system.

Desa ParkCity shaping up well
BY ANGIE NG

DESA ParkCity in northwest Kuala Lumpur is fast shaping up into one of the best master-planned communities in the city. Its first residential precinct will be completed next month.

Buyers of 171 units of the Safa double-storey terraces will be the first to move into their homes by next month, to be followed by buyers of the 165 Nadia homes, located next to Safa, who will be handed their keys by June next year.

To complement the development, more new products, including commercial properties, will be launched over the next five years for completion in 2012.

A site visit to Desa ParkCity revealed that the developer, Perdana ParkCity Sdn Bhd, has provided the space to create the Klang Valley's first ?Community of Short Distances? and the most ?walkable? community township.

Built for those who appreciate quality communal living, Perdana ParkCity chief executive officer Lee Liam Chye said all the amenities, including schools, shops, parks and club house within the sprawling central park, would be located within a 15-minute walk from the residential precincts.

The main community features in Desa ParkCity are aimed at promoting a sense of belonging and create cohesiveness within the community while maintaining their own residential identity.

Some of the key features are the distinctive identity of each neighbourhood, a 43-acre central park, membership to the RM30mil residents' clubhouse, walkable neighbourhood with 9ft-wide pedestrian sidewalks and distinct landscaping and safe streetscapes.



Lam Kee Cheong explaining the development plans of Desa Park City.

To promote higher interaction and walking among the community, the company has set aside quite substantial land to green the development, including a 43-acre central park and other smaller pocket parks of 1.5 to two acres in each of the 23 neighbourhoods. Tree-lined pedestrian sidewalks will border the streets.

Project director Lam Kee Cheong said earthworks for the central park and lake would commence next year for completion early 2006.

Other community features include a 28-acre education reserve for schools and colleges. The residents' clubhouse located within the central park will be ready in early 2007.

The RM3bil Desa ParkCity features 23 close-knit neighbourhoods with most of the precincts comprising strata-titled properties. Of the precincts launched so far, only Safa and Southlake Terraces are individually titled homes in non-gated communities, while the rest are gated enclaves.

To ensure security for the residents in the non-gated communities, single entry and exit points are set up to limit the access of non-residents.

The 473-acre development will feature 7,000 mixed residential units comprising park homes, courtyard terraces, semi-detached houses, bungalows, condominiums and apartments. So far, more than 1,000 homes have been launched and are at different stages of development.

Being individually-titled neighbourhoods, the landscaping for Safa and Southlake Terraces precincts are dictated by City Hall and will be integrated with the full extent of the creative landscape planned by Perdana ParkCity. The upkeep of the landscaping will be carried out by City Hall.

Lee said since the maiden launch of the Nadia gated homes in June 2002, more than RM500mil in sales had been achieved to-date. The 291 Southlake Terraces were the latest to be launched in June and have so far recorded a take-up rate of 76%.

In the bungalow precinct, a 150-acre hillside bungalow enclave will be launched in June next year. Under an earlier launch, more than 60% of the 96 bungalow lots under parcels B and D, priced from RM110 to RM130 per sq ft, have been sold. Bungalows will start to dot the landscape when construction in the bungalow precinct begins next year.

Slated for launch in 2005 are 66 detached homes, 30 semi-detached houses, 200 park homes and courtyard terraces, 215 terraced homes and 354 condominiums.

The Quaritz set to cheer up Desa Park City folk

THE Quaritz , the first phase of Desa ParkCity's commercial development that will be launched in October, is set to enliven the 473-acre master-planned community, with its array of lifestyle shop offices, an open-air piazza and an iconic entertainment building.

Planned to meet the changing lifestyle and needs of city folks who have found the predictability of traditional town centres dull and unattractive, the latest retail offering is to introduce some unpredictability and spruce up the liveliness of the place, Perdana ParkCity Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Lee Liam Chye said.

?The Quaritz, the heartbeat of the 45-acre town centre, is a ground-breaking commercial establishment set in a pedestrian-oriented environment. It is destined to be a major shopping, entertainment and employment hub of Kuala Lumpur west,? Lee noted.

Tagged as ?A Compelling Retail Entertainment Destination,? its crowd pullers include individually articulated stores, food kiosks and evocative design elements that converge to create a strong sense of enclosure for people to meet, socialise, eat and drink.

Lee said the ideals of The Quaritz were to awe, inspire, engage and entertain visitors and to create an inspirational and modern workplace that met the changing work habits of today.

?Located in the most prime section of the town centre with convenient access, multiple entry points and high visibility, the precinct is designed to create our very own Paris' Champs Elysees, London's Regent Street and New York City's Fifth Avenue,? Lee enthused.

?The pedestrian streets will be enlivened with hawker stalls, landscaping and street furniture. The 40,000-sq-ft piazza will have three intimate passages that connect to the main street, which is purposefully curved to create some suspense as to what lies beyond the bend.?


Lee Liam Chye with a model of the Quaritz work-and-live suites
Construction for the RM300mil project on 11.3 acres will begin next year for completion in 2007. One of the unique features of The Quaritz is the enclave of 100 four-storey shop offices, priced from RM1.8mil to RM2.2mil each.

Lee said the shop offices were the first of its kind work-and-live suites where the second and third floors were ingeniously integrated as one to produce double volume and fluid spaces that could easily accommodate very different businesses and adaptable living quarters in great style.

These versatile shop offices are suitable for those who need to work at odd hours and the flexibility of having live-in quarters.

With a combined gross area of 1.8 million sq ft, these shop offices have a total gross development value of RM250mil. Those facing the piazza and main street will have a price tag of RM1.8mil to RM2mil, while those with main road frontage will be priced from RM2mil.

Lee said investors of these work-and-live commercial lots could expect good yields as ?the properties exert dominance in the retail landscape of this rapidly developing part of Kuala Lumpur.?

Under a multi-anchoring programme developed for The Quaritz, he said the aim was to attract a blend of unique signature restaurants and icon retail operators capable of creating day-long activities to attract the crowd.

With a capacity for 570 persons, the iconic entertainment centre would have multi-anchors comprising destination shop operators, a new generation cinema complex with six to seven cineplexes, an exotic chill-out venue and signature restaurants.

These crowd pullers would be the magnet to tap into the affluent neighbourhoods of Bandar Utama, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sri Hartamas, Mont Kiara and greater Petaling Jaya.

Lee said the developer would retain 150,000 sq ft of the Iconic Entertainment Centre and the 1,025 car parks for rental and investment income.

Asian Pac’s niche lifestyle promise

First Nadia, then Safa and now LeVenue I. These are the first components of the mixed development called Desa Park City in Kepong, Kuala Lumpur.

The first two are offered by Perdana ParkCity Sdn Bhd, the original developer of Desa Park City, while the third is being undertaken by Asian Pac Holdings Bhd (APHB) on a 24-acre plot within the township it purchased at RM60 million in 2003.

APHB is planning to develop 232 units of three-storey terrace houses and semi-detached units on this land, and plans to launch the first of its two phases, LeVenue I, sometime this year.

Residents of both LeVenue I and II will have access to the club facilities, parks and other amenities offered by Perdana Park City in Desa Park City - therefore, APHB only needs to provide a small playground and good landscaping that fits in with the general development theme of the area.

This will enable APHB to concentrate on the design and layout of the units, which will be larger than normal, with plenty of cross ventilation and other features such as courtyards and fishponds available inside the units.

The elements of feng shui are also considered and, according to an executive of the company, no unit will face either west or a junction.

The second phase, LeVenue II, will comprise 50 units of three-storey terrace houses and 70 semi-detached units, with the pricing of the terraces expected to be 10 per cent higher than that of

LeVenue I.

To give potential buyers an idea of what to expect in both the LeVenue phases, APHB is preparing four show units at the site of the RM230 million gross development value project, which marks the company’s entry into the high-end landed residential market.

Built on the theme “Bringing the outdoors indoors”, the project will boast a density of 10 units per acre and promises buyers, whether local or foreign, a niche, modern lifestyle.

APHB’s other projects include the 80-acre mixed development Kepong Entrepreneurs’ Park and Sutera Bukit Tunku - a RM64.4 million development consisting of 24 luxury condos.

In the pipeline are a RM130 million waterfront development spanning 24 acres near Sutera Harbour in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, as well as a mixed development spanning 475 acres near Westport in Pulau Indah, Selangor.

These projects are expected to contribute RM1 billion in sales for APHB in the coming financial year, compared with sales totalling RM300 million recorded in the last financial year. - FF
