Kota Kemuning

Within the city of Shah Alam, Kota Kemuning is a township located near Subang. Kota Kemuning, developed by HICOM-Gamuda Development Sdn Bhd in 1994, was the developer’s first foray into property development. This lovely metropolis surrounded by flora and wildlife has come into existence. Kemuning Utama, a township in its own right, is also part of this region.

The Bukit Kemuning Golf and Country Club and the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club, which have hosted various championships in the past, including the Maybank Malaysia Open, Volvo Masters, and the prestigious FORTIS International event, which saw the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club host the qualifying event for the prestigious World Cup of Golf, the inaugural Asian Nations Cup in 1999, have contributed to the township’s rapid growth in recent years.

Kota Kemuning is a 1,854-acre integrated township that caters to property purchasers who want a back-to-nature lifestyle for themselves, with more than 45 per cent of the area allocated to parks, lakes, and greens, according to the developer. As a result, a slew of astute luxury developers has flocked to the region to stake their claims on unclaimed land. With significant features such as the Central Lake and Lakeside Drive with its continuous jogging track, basketball courts, and Wetland and Hill Parks, the plan was built on creating an eco-friendly environment for its community.

The residential areas in Kota Kemuning cater to those of a higher income group, with bungalows, semi-detached homes, and terrace houses; and while Kemuning Utama also has its fair share of semi-detached homes and terrace houses, they also have low to medium cost apartments to cater to those of a lower income group. Property prices in this area are still relatively modest, although new developments such as HomeTree and Broadleaf Residences, both by developer BCB Bhd, are on track to be finished in 2016 and 2018, respectively.

Some of Kota Kemuning’s best attractions are its true concepts of nature, such as its central lake and the lakeside drive, which has a continuous jogging track; and the Kota Kemuning Hill Park and the 22-acre Wetland Park, which won the Landscape Planning Award, International Award by the Singapore Institute of Landscape Architect in 2003 and the Malaysian Institute of Planners’ Urban Re-Development, Conservation and Rehabilitation Award in 2003.

Residents will be irritated attempting to get onto the KESAS highway during peak hours, despite all of the well-located expressways that go to and from Kota Kemuning, because the roads will be enormously clogged owing to the large number of cars that utilise that specific route. Commuters might spend over three hours on the road to and from work, but the benefit of living in a good neighbourhood outweighs the inconvenience of commuting. There is still an opportunity for property investors in Kota Kemuning as the township progresses and developers aim to persuade more people to move here.
