A township of great potential.
The complete and practical masterplan of Shah Alam 2 is probably its most alluring quality. A comprehensive township by prominent property developer IJM Land, Shah Alam 2 is located in Bandar Puncak Alam. Spanning more than 14,000 acres, it is found adjacent to Selangor state’s capital city of Shah Alam, and thus share comparable accessibility with the latter.
The township which first opened in 2001 is planned to be an integrated mix of residential, commercial and institutional development. And while it has far to go before the entire masterplan finally realizes, we do see signs of growth, and steady growth for that matter.
With about half of the land in Shah Alam 2 dedicated to the development of homes, a drive through the blossoming township will reveal beautifully laid out neighborhood enclaves of bungalows, semi-Ds, and terrace houses. One of IJM Land’s latest launches is the Tierra Double-story Terrace Homes.
Built with families in mind, the Tierra homes’ spacious living spaces allow a comfortable and pleasant lifestyle for its dwellers where bonding among family members can take place naturally. The 22 ft by 90 ft terraces come with a built-up area of 2,210 sq ft and is practically laid out with four bedrooms and three bathrooms including a room for guests on the ground floor. A family hall on the first floor also allows for more private and intimate activities among family members such as a game of Monopoly or maybe a family movie night.
What really makes each of these 43 Tierra homes stand out is its design. Even before you step foot into the home, you will realize that each of these homes are built with a double façade. This means, there is actually space for a backyard where residents can creatively use for an outdoor activity such as a Sunday afternoon barbecue or an evening dinner party with friends and relatives. Corner units will have an additional benefit where the front and back is linked by a side garden.
Stepping inside the home, one will find that it is still pretty much connected to the beauties of the outdoors. This is because the modern design of its interiors also places emphasis on good ventilation and natural lighting. With a stylish design and quality finishing, homeowners will feel right at home from the beginning. Priced from RM495,000, Tierra will be officially launched with a show house by the end of 2013.
Residents of Tierra will not only find pleasure at home as access to commercial needs is all there within the Shah Alam 2 township. And as the township slowly add more numbers to its population of 50,000, inevitably, it will need more commercial offering to support that growth. IJM land answers that need with the launch of the double-story terrace shop office within the township’s commercial hub, Dataran Suria.
These 124 units of shop offices are available in two types – the first with a measurement of 22 ft by 60 ft and the second with a slightly larger 22 ft by 70 ft. Its built-up area measuring from 2,570 sq ft to 4,050 sq ft for corner units offer a conducive enough space for businesses to thrive. And located in a growing township only translates to endless opportunities for business owners who want to capture this growing market.
Priced from RM473,000, the Dataran Suria shop offices will receive great visibility as it is located smack middle of Shah Alam 2 surrounded by homes. Its design also offers versatility where various kinds of businesses will find suitable to run out of. Interested parties will be happy to know that the developer is offering a 10% discount for Bumiputera, while the SPA legal fee will be borne by the developer.
For the past few years since its inception, Shah Alam 2 has been, most of the time, considered a viable investment for owner occupiers because of the convenient and conducive lifestyle it offers, but property investors have generally shied away. However, the last year has seen some vital change in its landscape, and more investors have started eyeing properties in the area. The change here is referring to the realization of several education institutions.
The Selangor State government has already designated Shah Alam 2 and its surroundings as a New Growth Center, with plans to transform the area into and Education Town. The entire area will soon be home to more than 20 tertiary education institutions. The newly completed UiTM Puncak Alam Campus is already in operations, and because of that, the rental market has picked up somewhat because of the incoming student population.
Of course, the township will still retain its charm as a family-centered township with daily amenities all intact and beautiful landscapes to accompany you as you move through town. But if one needs to venture out, the multitude of highways and access roads make it a breeze. Shah Alam 2 is easily accessible via its neighboring city, Shah Alam via the Shah Alam-Puncak Alam Highway and Klang via Jalan Meru-Kuala Selangor. On top of that, the Guthrie Corridor Expressway and the New Klang Valley Expressway(NKVE) allows for easy travel to KL City while the ELITE and newly completed LATAR Highways provides easy access to the south and north respectively.
Strategically located and a well thought out masterplan, Shah Alam 2 seems to be on the right track towards being a thriving township. Its promising transformation into a locale for both families as well as the student population makes it a great investment both homeowners as well as investors.
