Jalan Ipoh property follows the path of one of Kuala Lumpur’s oldest roads, emerging from the edge of Chow Kit in the east to wind its way past Titiwangsa, through Sentul, and out to the edge of Segambut to the west.
This once-vital road link has today been supplanted by the numerous highways that criss-cross Kuala Lumpur and the wider Klang Valley, while Jalan Ipoh retains its charm as a traditional retail area defined by numerous shop fronts which line much of the street.
In 2014, the widely recognised Jalan Ipoh was renamed by Kuala Lumpur City Hall as Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah. While local residents look fondly on the traditional name, this change does reflect a growing renewal in the neighbourhood of primarily low-cost and affordable homes.
Buyers searching for a Jalan Ipoh house for sale today have choices far beyond traditional faded terrace housing and low-rise properties, with the reality on the ground one of growing urban renewal. Jalan Ipoh condo developments, particularly in the Sentul West area, are adding an increasing depth to the housing stock not previously enjoyed in the area. Condominium complexes such as Rivercity Condominium, Putra Court, and luxury development The Maple in Sentul West represents the potential and emerging opportunity of Jalan Ipoh.
Jalan Ipoh’s urban location and traditional role as a central link within KL also ensures it enjoys relatively good access to local amenities. Residents to the western side of Jalan Ipoh benefit from simple access to nearby Brem Mall, a popular neighbourhood mall which offers a range of shops and eateries as well as entertainment opportunities and a cinema. To the east side of Jalan Ipoh you can find Sunway Putra Mall, a modern urban mall with a substantial range of retail outlets alongside a large and varied food and beverage offering at its food court. Sunway Putra Mall is also home to a cinema and other entertainment facilities, as well as boasting a popular playground and petting zoo for the kids.
The area is home to a variety of options when it comes to shopping for groceries and household goods. That includes the popular Jalan Ipoh market, a convenient place for local food shopping. As well as the traditional retail opportunities that line Jalan Ipoh, it is also located close to several supermarkets. Sunway Putra Mall is home to supermarket brand Cold Storage, offering fresh goods, important brands, and everyday staples. Giant Supermarket Kepong Brem Mall offers an alternative supermarket option for residents on the western side of Jalan Ipoh.
Outdoor recreational areas are also readily accessible from properties in and around Jalan Ipoh. Taman Tasik Titiwangsa to the northeast provides a popular outdoor space complete with a great range of outdoor activities, although at the time of writing it is closed for essential upgrades. Visitors can rent boats to enjoy an escape on the central lake, or try their hand at skating, cycling, jogging, and a range of other activities that includes a play park for kids. Sentul Park is another popular local outdoor area that’s within touching distance of Jalan Ipoh. Much of the large recreational area is limited to residents only, offering unique access to qualifying property owners. The rest of the park can be accessed by the public, and includes The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre which hosts regular concerts, plays, ballets, and other fantastic performances.
Jalan Ipoh provides convenient access to a number of public and private schools located within nearby neighbourhoods. Sentul is home to private institutions such as Chong Hwa Independent High School and Wesley Methodist School. Meanwhile other respected private schools such as Hibiscus International School, Victoria International College, Mont Kiara International School, and Garden International School Kuala Lumpur are also located within a short travelling distance of Jalan Ipoh.
As one might expect from what was once a major transport route, residents of Jalan Ipoh still benefit from great connectivity, with easy travel to popular neighbourhoods such as Mont Kiara and Bangsar, as well as easy access to KLCC. Jalan Tun Razak at Titiwangsa Sentral provides a major access route to the east, while both the DUKE Expressway and Federal Route 1 link to Jalan Ipoh to the west. These outstanding road connections also provide convenient links to other major highways such as the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP).
Public transport options for residents of Jalan Ipoh are varied and conveniently located within and in nearby neighbourhoods. Light Rapid Transport (LRT) stations can be found in nearby areas, with Titiwangsa LRT, Sentul LRT, and LRT Station PWTC providing a number of access points. Chow Kit Monorail station provides another convenient public transport option in the east of the neighbourhood. Putra Komuter Station and Sentul Komuter station are well located for access to KTM Komuter services. Jalan Ipoh is also set to benefit from the impending development of the Sungai Buloh–Serdang–Putrajaya line.Read More
