KAJANG: Bangi Heights Development Sdn Bhd (BHD), a joint-venture company between United Malayan Land Bhd (UMLand) and Singapore’s CapitaLand Ltd is planning to launch its latest project, The Apex in Putra Hills (Bandar Seri Putra), Bangi in early 2015.

“The Apex is a freehold development with an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM268 million. The first parcel, the Apex East, will see a development of 17 bungalow houses with built-ups ranging from 4,188 sq ft to 6,413 sq ft with selling prices from RM2.36 million to RM4.11 million,” said UMLand group chief executive officer Charlie Chia in a press release recently.
The Apex will have a total of 81 bungalows and is expected to be completed by December 2016.

Meanwhile, UMLand will conduct upgrading works in its township Bandar Seri Putra. This will include improving street lighting, landscaping, walking paths, fencing, the entrance, and roads around the township.

The proposed upgrade project was officiated in a ceremony in early September by Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim.

“These upgrading works of the bungalow lot area of Putra Hills Residency is one among many of UMLand’s efforts as a responsible developer to contribute back to the community in order to create a positive, competitive and advanced society,” said Chia.

Bandar Seri Putra is a self-contained township with facilities such as a police station, post office, primary and secondary schools, a regional health clinic and retail shops, and can be accessed through the Putra Mahkota interchange along the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban highway.

“Apart from facilities, to ensure the safety and well-being of the neighbourhood, we are proud to have the Bangi Police Station which is situated in the township itself,” Chia added.

At the event, BHD presented a RM500,000 cheque, out of the RM1.5 million it contributed to the development of Masjid Al-Mustaqim, the first mosque in Bandar Seri Putra.
