As the Klang Valley expands its borders and as urbanisation sweeps across major townships, the demand for quiet and rustic living spaces has increased. Located in the southwestern edge of the Klang Valley and placed under the jurisdiction of Semenyih south Albury@Mahkota Hills has captured the attention of both developers and potential property-owners.
Looked upon as the next hotspot for contemporary property developments, Semenyih is also renowned for its eco-tourism hub complemented by the scenic Sungai Gabai Waterfalls, Semenyih Water Reservoir, Congkak River Forest Recreational Centre and the breathtaking Broga Hills.
Over the last 10 years, Semenyih has experienced robust growth and has welcomed commercial and residential developments amidst its charming and scenic environment. One such development is Albury@Mahkota Hills, a residential precinct comprising single and double-storey link homes. The development is the first for UMLand in Mahkota Hills, spanning 52.1 acres of freehold land, and comprising 331 single-storey units and 382 double-storey units.
Albury@Mahkota Hills presents stylish residences with contemporary designs and high-quality workmanship. The gated and guarded development features single and double-storey link homes with built-up sizes ranging from 1,223 sq ft to 2,136 sq ft. The single-storey units consist of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms while the double-storey units comprise 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The homes come with dimensions of 20ft x 70ft, 18ft x 65ft, 22ft x 65ft, and 22ft x 75ft.
Each home promises spacious living, dining and kitchen areas with cosy bedrooms, complemented by ample space on the front porch to park 2 cars side-by-side. With a strong commitment to quality, Albury promises contemporary and stylish fittings and finishes. Ceramic tiles are used generously across the living, dining, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst the terrace boasts premium porcelain tiles. The use of top quality sanitary ware and the provision of ample electrical points testify to the development’s well-structured design and commitment to providing quality living spaces.
Albury@Mahkota Hills promises contemporary living complimented by a fully-equipped common clubhouse that hosts a range of recreational and lifestyle facilities. Residents get to enjoy the mesmerising swimming pool, gymnasium, common hall, barbeque pits, as well as basketball, volleyball and badminton courts. The children’s playground is an exhilarating space with a modern yet cheerful touch.
The development boasts a rustic 20-acre central park with lush tropical greenery, manicured lawns as well as a scenic lake. The tree-lined streets, broad boulevards, paved roads and well-lit surroundings is the ideal spot to live a secure and peaceful life away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet within easy access to urban conveniences.
Targeted at young families, professionals and investors, Albury is priced from RM231 per square feet to RM289 per sq ft. The development is scheduled for completion in 2018. In 2017, Mahkota Hills was awarded the Best Livable Township Development at a recent awards ceremony.
Recognising the need for security and surveillance to ensure the safety of residents, UMLand and the Royal Malaysian Police launched a pilot community policing programme in February 2017, at Albury, aimed at enhancing safety and well-being within the community. This programme is in line with the federal government’s economic expansion plans in the south of the Klang Valley as well as various initiatives introduced under the Tenth Malaysia Plan 2011 to 2015 and the Eleventh Malaysia Plan 2016 to 2020.

A Catalyst For The Future
With the government’s plans to expand the border of the Klang Valley, Mahkota Hills is at the epicentre of the country’s future plans. The township is within a convenient distance from the upcoming Malaysia Vision Valley (MVV) project which was announced by the government under the Eleventh Malaysia Plan.
The MVV project is an economic corridor that is set to be located at the western part of Negeri Sembilan, spanning Nilai, Seremban and Port Dickson with a proposed area of 108,000 hectares. MVV is poised to be the hub for high-tech industries, logistics, education, health, tourism and sports. This new economic corridor is expected to create some 1.35 million jobs by 2035 and bring in investments of more than RM417.6 billion by 2045.
Mahkota Hills is also within several minutes’ drive from the upcoming Cyber City Centre in Cyberjaya which has a gross development of RM5.35 billion. The upcoming KLIA Aeropolis, located just 20 minutes’ away, is set to host regional eCommerce initiatives and act as a logistics hub under the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) initiative, which is the first in the world. KLIA Aeropolis is expected to establish 56,000 jobs while DFTZ is expected to provide 60,000 jobs.
With the rapid expansion of the southern Klang Valley, the Malaysian government has established key strategies to strengthen the infrastructure of this zone, according to the Eleventh Malaysia Plan 2016 to 2020. These infrastructure initiatives include the recently completed RM10 billion Ampang LRT Extension Line that connects Sri Petaling to Puchong before ending at Putra Heights. Other infrastructure plans that support this zone include the MRT Line 1, 2 and LRT Line 3.
Albury@Mahkota Hills is the brainchild of Kia Ace Development Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UMLand Sdn Bhd – an award-winning developer with two property divisions, namely township development and niche projects. Under its township development division, UMLand has successfully delivered five townships namely Bandar Seri Alam and Taman Seri Austin in Iskandar Malaysia, Bandar Seri Putra in Bangi, Mahkota Hills in Semenyih and the new world-class integrated biotech park in Pasir Gudang, Johor Halal Park, which is a joint-venture project with JBiotech, an arm of the Johor State government.
