It will be a good idea connecting Bandar Utama/Mutiara Damansara to Damansara Uptown then towards SS2 and finally reaching Kelana Jaya.

On another note, Procter & Gamble (P&G) has moved its Malaysian headquarters to Menara Surian in Mutiara Damansara (previously at Wisma Consplant Subang Jaya).

GLOMAC AL BATHA MUTIARA, Mutiara Damansara
The development of this upcoming project in Mutiara Damansara will be undertaken together with its partner Al Batha Group via Glomac’s 51%-owned subsidiary. Al Batha, the same organisation that Glomac is partnering with to develop Glomac Tower in KLCC, is a large private conglomerate in the United Arab Emirates.


Glomac Mutiara Damansara



This upcoming project in Mutiara Damansara, sited on 2.7 acres of freehold land, will also be an integrated mixed commercial development comprising retail space, office suites and corporate offices with a combined GDV of RM235m. Again, the management is looking to sell some of those components en bloc. Otherwise, it may consider developing them into serviced apartments. The proposed development site is surrounded by well-established commercial hubs such as Tesco, Ikea and the Curve. As this project is only slated for launch in FY11 and/or beyond and given that launch details are still scant, this project is not included into our estimates at this juncture.



GLOMAC UTAMA, Bandar Utama Damansara
In November 2009, Glomac proposed to acquire 2 pieces of leasehold land measuring about 7.6 acres in Pekan Kayu Ara (Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya) for RM31.2m, or about RM94 psf.

The S&P Agreement is expected to be completed in 6-9 months. The land is adjacent to mature residential and commercial developments such as Damansara Utama, Damansara Jaya and Bandar Utama. The area is also highly accessible as it is served by major roads such as the North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) and SPRINT highway. The land is expected to be developed into a mixed residential and commercial development with an estimated GDV of about RM400m.

It was already mentioned in post #608 >> http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=608

The project is called The Oval Damansara and is believed to be by Monoland Group??? (contractor for Oval KL, Titiwangsa Sentral, Vipod and Quadro KLCC) and not Dijaya. Surprisingly, this land is lower than the cemetery LOL....

I wished Dijaya developed its old office and carpark site Wisma Dijaya where Summer Palace restaurant sits as TA brokerage headquarters (from Menara TA in KL) is expected to move there. But I'm sure the residents there will protest like mad.

my neighbourhood traffic madness..

Damansara Utama residents against highway concessionaire using land
Story and photo by YIP YOKE TENG
teng@thestar.com.my
Saturday May 1, 2010


RESIDENTS of Damansara Utama refreshed their call to save the green belt in Jalan SS 21/44, which the Damansara-Puchong Highway concessionaire had earlier applied to use as part of the upgrade of its Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) interchange.

The council has not approved the concessionaire, Lingkaran Trans Kota Sdn Bhd’s (Litrak) application to use the land to widen its highway, nor has it said that the green lung can remain.

Residents said the last letter they received from the council had stated that the matter was tabled in the MTES meeting in August last year, which was then decided that it be put on hold pending the evaluation of the land involved.

Till now, the residents could only wait anxiously for the authorities to make a stand while construction of the interchange’s upgrade on the concessionaire’s right of way is in full swing.

Damansara Utama’s Anti-Litrak Action Committee chairman Zainuddin Zakaria said the residents suffered another blow recently when they found out from a third party that the land had been gazetted as a reserve for public space by the state government way back in 1984.

“The Selangor government circular also had on April 12, 2007, stated clearly that the land is reserved for public purpose — a site for open space to be controlled by the state secretary of Selangor.

“We, the residents here, have never been officially told this crucial piece of information,” Zainuddin said.

He added: “Should the state approve leasing the land, then where is its promise to conserve the green areas that are fast shrinking due to imbalanced development?”

Another resident, Hamdan Hassan, said the move to use the land would be unfair to the residents of Damansara Utama, especially the 45 house owners in Jalan SS 21/44, who bought the houses in 1975 because of the green area.

“This green belt has been shrinking throughout the years, now they want to take even the small strip that’s left for us and this would mean we will eventually have a highway right in front of our doors,” he said.

Damansara Utama Residents and Owners Association chairman Rajes Patel pointed out that it was unfair for Damansara Utama residents to bear the brunt because the bulk of the traffic on this stretch of LDP that caused the daily congestion were actually heading towards Bandar Utama and Kota Damansara.

He also said the residents were never consulted when it was announced in 2007 that the highway facing their houses would be upgraded, and land in their neighbourhood would be used for the purpose.

“Also, they told us that the construction being carried out now is on the highway’s right of way but where exactly is that and where is the black and white proof to show that?” he asked.

“We are not against the LDP upgrade, all we want is for them to let us keep this very last bit of green we have, but unfortunately, our calls have fallen on deaf ears,” he said.

Litrak, when contacted, said there had been no new update on this issue.

The first stage of construction involves building a flyover (along the existing one) for traffic coming from Kelana Jaya towards Kepong. It is expected to be opened for traffic in July.

The green belt falls under the buffer zone within the MBPJ jurisdiction. Litrak intended to use part of it to widen the stretch of highway to accommodate a single lane that would be used as a local access road to turn into Damansara Utama and to head towards Bandar Utama.

Litrak had expressed in earlier reports that if the approval was not granted, it would move the sound barrier to the edge of its right-of-way to continue building the flyover and underpass but that stretch would be without a local access road.

MBPJ could not be reached for comments.

IF you are one of the 140,000 motorists passing through LDP’s Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) interchange daily, you will probably be fuming as traffic has been at a crawl lately.

Litrak communications head Bhavani Krishna Iyer said the construction work was part of the project to upgrade the TTDI interchange.

The upgrading work is being done to mitigate the congestion in the area due to the three-phase traffic at the junction.

‘’We seek the understanding and patience of motorists as we are trying to finish the work in the shortest time possible.

“We were delayed for about five months due to a land issue,’’ she said.

She advised highway users to avoid the interchange as much as possible during peak hours and use alternative routes instead.

The first stage of construction involves building a flyover (along the existing one) for traffic coming from Kelana Jaya towards Kepong.

The construction will take seven months and once completed, the bridge will be opened to traffic in July this year.

Currently, the two lanes for traffic coming from Kelana Jaya wanting to turn right into Taman Tun has been reduced to one.

‘’Once we have expanded the left lane (near the Damansara Utama BHP petrol station), we will close both lanes on the right because that is where the flyover will be,’’ she said.

She said the lane closure for traffic passing through the interchange from Section 16 and the Sprint highway heading towards Kepong was unavoidable.

The next stage of construction involves building a two-lane underpass for traffic coming from TTDI heading to Kepong and would bypass the current traffic light system.

The whole project is expected to be completed by mid-2011.
