- 168 Park Selayang was previously known as Selayang Star City.
According to a media release by Infra Segi, 168 Park Selayang was previously known as Selayang Star City and “was abandoned by the previous developer in 2016”. It also stated that Infra Segi “is the approved white knight by the High Court to undertake and revive the Selayang Star City project… bringing reprieve to 680 buyers”.
168 Park Selayang will have three residential tower blocks and a two-level commercial mall.
The development is also “set to appeal to first-time house buyers eyeing affordable properties closer to Kuala Lumpur city centre”.
As for the “upcoming modern design community mall” it has a net lettable area of 235,000 sq ft with 850 parking bays. “The community mall has attracted the attention of international brands seeking retail space along the bustling Jalan Kuching,” stated Infra Segi. The mall is targeted for opening in 1Q2024.
“We are not new to the Selayang Star City issue as we were the main contractor appointed by the previous developer. We were as equally frustrated as the 680 buyers when the project was abandoned.
“However, seeing the potential of the location due to its close proximity to Kuala Lumpur, high accessibility and the rapid development of the area, Infra Segi, the parent company decided to become the white knight developer of the entire project,” said chief executive officer, 168 Park Selayang Sdn Bhd, Edward Lum.
“On resuming the construction works and reconceptualising the entire project, our main aim is to bring the perfect balance between an urban lifestyle, business and leisure to the neighbourhood,” said Lum.
The first phase of 168 Park Selayang will consist of the construction of Block C and mall podium followed by the second phase construction of Block A starting in 4Q2022 and the final phase will be the construction of Block B which is estimated to start in 2Q2023,” he added.
