Affordable housing in Bangsar South 75% taken up


KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 15): A Federal Territory-level affordable housing scheme by IJM Land Bhd and Amona Development Sdn Bhd here has achieved a take-up rate of 75% at its launch here yesterday, the companies announced in a statement today.

The Rumawip project is named Suria Pantai and comprises 896 units of homes in a 34-storey block.

Each unit is 810 sq ft, comes with one covered parking bay and is priced at RM275,000.

Facilities within the gated and guarded development include a swimming pool, playground, and a multipurpose hall.

The launch of the homes was held at the ICE Gallery of Pantai Sentral Park yesterday and was officiated by Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil, witnessed by IJM Land MD Edward Chong, Amona Group of Companies CEO Che Hasnadi and Amona Development director Mohd Adib Othman.

“With the great location and accessibility, this is definitely one of the best places you can go for. To have a beautiful home in a scenic area with all the amenities provided, I must say that you are all very lucky to have been able to secure a unit. This is a great effort by the developers and the government in hopes that more families and young professionals have the opportunity to enjoy such benefits,” said Fahmi in the press release.


Suria Pantai is about 3km to Mid Valley and 5km to KL Sentral. It is also accessible via the recently-opened New Pantai Expressway (NPE)’s Pantai Sentral interchange.

The new dedicated interchange which comprises three ramps and two at-grade roads connects Pantai Sentral Park directly to the NPE, with enhanced accessibility to various key hubs and locations in Klang Valley.

Equipped with CCTV, the new interchange is expected to ease traffic flow in the entire area surrounding Pantai Sentral Park.

Nearby amenities include malls such as Mid Valley Megamall, KL Gateway and Aeon Prime; public transport stations such as the University LRT station, Pantai Dalam KTM and KL Sentral transport hub; Universiti Malaya, University Malaya Medical Centre, Pantai Medical Hospital and Columbia Medical Hospital, as well as the 200-acre Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi.

The development is now open for registration via Suria Pantai’s official portal.

Single individuals with a monthly income of less than RM10,000 and combined household incomes of no more than RM15,000 are eligible apply for an unit in this project.
