Nestled between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s political capital, and Putrajaya, its administrative capital, Puchong is among the prime towns for property investment.
Puchong, previously a rubber estate and tin-mining town in the 1960s, renovated its sprawling industrial regions to convert them into office buildings, commercial centres and residential areas, with rising numbers of houses and apartments for sale. These have mainly developed along Jalan Puchong.
Concentrated with many houses and apartments for sale, property in Puchong predominantly serves as residential areas for the three dominant cities (Kuala Lumpur, Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya). Therefore, it is unsurprising that Puchong is scattered with multiple options for food and general shopping. Puteri Mart at Bandar Puteri functions as a wet market, and Town Park is a great spot for grocery shopping.
Amenities and Facilities
Restaurants in Puchong, apart from local delicacies, cover a wide range of cuisines – Western, Balinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian and Thai. 3 Wise Monkeys, famous for its Broken Heart Monkey Pizza and Melted Cheese Nachos and Bumbu Bali serving extensive, authentic dishes from the island of Bali are definitely worth a try.
Local and foreign owned shopping malls also spread across Puchong, including Tesco Puchong, Giant, Jusco, Puchong Parade, Puchong Plaza and IOI Mall. Located at the heart of Bandar Puchong Jaya, IOI Mall is equipped with a cinema multiplex and a bowling alley.
Business centres in Puchong include IOI Boulevard and SetiaWalk Puchong. SetiaWalk, unlike IOI Boulevard, which is mainly decked with retail and office units, has further shopping complexes, restaurants and cafes, an entertainment complex, and serviced apartments. Comparably, located within the hub of Bandar Puteri Puchong, The Cube is another thriving commercial development. These complexes provide services and serve expectations of Puchong’s contemporary society.
Puchong also provides amenities such as hospitals (Columbia hospital), schools and prominent banks, both local and foreign, which tend to hook property buyers.
Accessibility and Transportation
Puchong offers a couple of options in terms of transportation. The effortless, toll-free way to reach Puchong from Kuala Lumpur would be through Jalan Klang Lama or Bukit Jalil. If approaching from Putrajaya, the Lebuh Raya Damansara Puchong (LDP) would be a good choice with a toll fee of only RM1.60. From Shah Alam on the other hand, KESAS highway is available and from Subang Jaya, and the LDP is accessible via Bandar Sunway.
Having the LDP running across it, Puchong is very easily reached by car. A convenient aspect about this mode of transportation is that there is no necessity to pay toll within the Puchong area itself. On top of that, there are a number of entry and exits along the highway hence getting in and out of housing and commercial areas is relatively trouble-free.
Apart from that, Rapid KL and Metro bus services are distributed throughout Puchong. The LRT (Ampang line) is also looking to expand its extension to Puchong. Once this is completed, getting to Puchong from the major cities using public transportation would be a breeze.
