Pangsapuri Petaling Utama Petaling Jaya
Our tour of Old Klang Road took a detour via Seri Sentosa, and so far, we have reached Sri Manja Court. At this point, Jalan Taman Seri Sentosa ends and we enter a new territory called Petaling Utama which merges with Taman Sri Manja.
The most visible landmark in Petaling Utama is Wisma Peterâ€™s, the headquarters of Peterâ€™s Holdings, which developed Petaling Utama. The company started as a brick manufacturer and ventured into property development with a penchant for salvaging abandoned housing projects in Perak and Kuala Lumpur.Its maiden project in Kuala Lumpur was at this very site â€“ the 150-acre Petaling Utama. It was formerly a large tin mine. Earlier attempts by other parties to rehabilitate and redevelop the land failed.
Today, it is a different story. PJS 1 is located at the northern section of Petaling Utama, adjoining Old Klang Road (now part of the New Pantai Expressway). The area comprises mostly commercial properties. To the west is the light industrial area. Between the light industrial and commercial districts, there are several residential properties, namely Taman Petaling Utama flats and Permai apartments.
This is a strategic layout from a developerâ€™s point of view as the commercial lots are more eye-catching than mere rows of houses. The pockets of high-density and high-rise residential properties provide a source of manpower and customers.
Further south, closer to Taman Sri Manja and Jalan Taman Seri Sentosa, the development is predominantly residential. In between these two sections, there are still tracts of ex-mining land awaiting development. Here, there is SJK(C) Yuk Chyun at PJS 1/35 as well as PJS One apartment, Rumah Insaniah Dr Siti Hasmah rehabilitation home for the physically disabled and Damai Senja apartment.
