Bandar Saujana Utama is located in Sungai Buloh, and it is developed by Glomac Bhd. The leasehold 1,100-acre development was launched in 1995, and it featured eight phases.

Bandar Saujana Utama is a well-planned township that stretches across the northwest of Sungai Buloh district, of which Saujana Perdana is a part. Glomac is looking to launch a 65-acre residential project in Bandar Saujana Utama by the end of 2021.

The township is self-sustaining, with necessities such as shops, eateries, banks, schools, medical centres, places of worship, and more. Today, both Bandar Saujana Utama and Saujana Perdana have an occupancy of more than 93% and are expected to reach a population of 55,000 by the end of 2021.

Glomac envisioned Bandar Saujana Utama as a township where Malaysians, especially younger families, can live in this area while working in the city centre. Overall, the township has grown to be more desirable among homeowners because of its location and accessibility.

Nevertheless, there are those who are ready to buy properties. Thus, Glomac has designed their products to meet the market’s demand to make sure that launches are successful.

Apart from its developments in Bandar Saujana Utama, Glomac plans to continue to launch several more projects in 2021. While they have their luxury products, they will focus on their bread-and-butter products, 1- or 2-storey houses, which are mostly priced below RM600,000. Due to the pandemic, this range of product will remain as their focus for 2021.
