Botanic Klang is an integrated self-sustaining township in the southern part of Klang, Selangor. It was conceived in 2000 and pioneered the concept of bringing the outdoors indoors by weaving nature seamlessly into the everyday lives of its community. It offers a harmonious and sustainable environment which can be enjoyed for generations to come.

The RM3 billion township project was led by Gamuda Berhad and developed by Harum Intisari Sdn Bhd. The 1,247-acre freehold township comprises retail and commercial services and amenities. It is the first waterfront parkland township with a self-sustaining urban stormwater management system in Malaysia, and the country’s first winner of the FIABCI Property Award 2003 for Best Master Plan.

Analysis

Bandar Botanic is deemed as an ideal township for a permanent residence, as families are able to enjoy the expansive greenscapes and facilities. Residents who do not have any wish to go into the city can just stay put as everything is available close to their home.

ZPPHO.110238906.R800X800

According to the developer, most buyers are from Klang and Shah Alam. Most have purchased for their own stay, and there are also parents who’ve purchased houses for their children.

Purchasers who bought before everything was in place enjoyed the highest capital appreciation. For instance, a unit purchased in July 2010 at RM941,800 was sold 4 years later for RM1.65 million. The owner enjoyed a capital appreciation of 75%, or an annual average of 18%. The appreciation reflects Bandar Botanic’s investment value.

So, if you’re interested in a 2,800 sq ft house in Bandar Botanic that’s priced at RM815,000, and rented out at about RM2,800 per month, the gross rental yield is about 4.12% per annum.
