Kota Damansara is an emerging township in Selangor, located between Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya, just 20 minutes’ drive to the west of KLCC.
Development of the township began in the early 1990s, carving out land previously designated as a forest reserve to provide new homes for Kuala Lumpur’s growing population. Today, Kota Damansara property is seen by many as a more affordable and emerging alternative to more mature and affluent neighbouring areas such as Mutiara Damansara and TTDI.
This proximity to popular mature neighbourhoods is a major attraction for those seeking a house for sale in Kota Damansara, with great amenities and well developed malls within easy travel. But Kota Damansara is an emerging neighbourhood which boasts its own growing array of amenities, with this rapidly maturing township enjoying a great deal of development focus in recent years.
