Starting as a residential area, Cheras has evolved into a business, education and entertainment centre for city dwellers. The opening of Ikea Cheras and Mytown Shopping Centre as well as Sunway Velocity have created more vibrancy to this old residential area in KL.
In terms of connectivity, it has easy access to major highways such as the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), Cheras-Kajang Expressway (Grand Saga), East–West Link and the Smart Tunnel.
Furthermore, its massive size means several LRT (Ampang-Sri Petaling line) and MRT (Sungai Buloh-Kajang line) stations serve the area, making commuting convenient. Hence, getting in and around it can be a breeze. Notably, the Bandar Tasik Selatan (BTS) Rail interchange in the district is linked to KLIA via the ERL Expressway. And this route only takes a short 20-minute journey.
Overall, property buyers preferred high-rise residential properties in Cheras over other property types. This could be due to lack of landed housing choices in the area and the high-rise residential segment offers more affordable and lifestyle choices for young homebuyers or investors.
