The rise of the South of Bangsar
Jun 05, 2015
Lying south of Bangsar on the fringes of Kuala Lumpur, between the city centre and Petaling Jaya are the Kerinchi and adjoining Pantai areas. While Pantai offers medium to high-income homes, Kerinchi has a varied mix of low-cost housing to medium high to high-end residences. Kampung Kerinchi, in particular, used to be home to urban pioneers and made up of village houses. More recently however, large parts of the area have been undergoing gentrification by various developers. The most significant development in the area is Bangsar South. This and other new projects are creating a new skyline for Kerinchi/Pantai. Read the full report on the Kerinchi/Pantai area in The Edge Property pullout of The Edge Financial Daily on June 5.
