The university town of Bangi has been drawing the interests of investors for over a decade. However, its tremendous growth into one of the country’s leading education hubs in the last five years has established its position as Klang Valley’s most sought after property hotspot. Located at the southern edge of Bangi, the garden themed Apartments of Putra 1 is viewed by many as an attractive purchase as it comes with full condominium facilities. The freehold gross development value of RM224 million is strategically located as part of the fast upcoming township of Bandar Seri Putra.
Putra 1 benefits from Kuala Lumpur’s Southern Corridor buzz
Bandar Seri Putra is viewed as the very pulse of Kuala Lumpur’s Southern Corridor. It is centrally located between the nation’s main business, administrative and technology capitals of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Cyberjaya, respectively and Bandar Baru Bangi, the home of the institutions of Malaysia France Institute, University Tenaga Nasional, Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University, Open University Malaysia and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. Bangi with Sepang, Nilai and Kajang-Semenyih form Malaysia’s fastest growing region, Kuala Lumpur’s southern corridor. Its population of half a million has created an unprecedented demand for commercial and residential properties. The demand is further boosted by the ample employment and education opportunities in the region.
In a recent interview, property expert Aziz Ahmad, the founder of Hartanahguru.com said that the southern region offers the most value for money if buyers or investors decide to make purchases now as prices are still within the affordable range. He predicts a solid market performance for non-landed properties in Bangi. According to him, residential projects priced at more than RM300 per sq ft when first launched are going for RM400, 000 once completed. Aziz Ahmad also believes that the rental market in Bangi will remain healthy moving forward and will gradually increase as the cost of living increases and more buyers will purchase newer properties in the area. The average monthly rental rate for landed properties in Bangi is roughly RM1,800 and RM1,200 for non-landed properties. Based on statistics from brickz.my, there were 172 transactions for non-landed properties in the first 10 months of 2015. This robust trend certainly augurs well for projects such as the Putra 1 Apartments.
Putra 1’s garden theme and condominium facilities raise its appeal
The 8.9 acres Putra 1 Apartments magical appeal lies in its beautiful landscaped grounds. It houses 3 acres of garden courtyard which transforms the setting of the apartments into a serene nature park, a rare offering for a contemporary development that offers the conveniences of city living.

The bonus of each apartment coming with two covered car-parks will be much appreciated by the couples who choose to make Putra 1 as their home.
Putra 1’s extensive range of condominium facilities is yet another strong draw for young people as it supports the lifestyle of the busy yet sociable, city executive. The comprehensive facilities at Putra 1 allow residents to relax, entertain and indulge in a variety of recreational activities.
