  • 29 May 2019

Gamuda Gardens is a 15-year development project in Kuang (north of Sungai Buloh), Selangor. The 810-acre township was launched in February 2017 and will be divided into seven precincts, with a total gross development value (GDV) of RM10.1 billion. Its 6,000 residential units will encompass link houses, linked villas, semi-detached, bungalows, and serviced apartments.

Gamuda Gardens is built on a natural undulating terrain and it features 5 cascading lakes and a waterfall in a 50-acre park, a mixed terrain cycling trail, and a waterfront village.

Gamuda Gardens Sungai Buloh is a waterfront residences

Another component that Gamuda Gardens will have ready for residents when they move in is the waterfront village, which is connected to the new experience gallery. The waterfront village is approximately 120,000 sq ft and it will house amenities such as a grocer, convenience shops, F&B outlets, sports and clubhouse facilities.

Gamuda is investing over RM200 million in upgrading the infrastructure. The opening of a 3.1km access road at the Kuang Sistem Interchange at the North-South Expressway (NSE) will cut travel from Kuala Lumpur to Kundang by 10km. It will also provide a direct link to Gamuda Gardens.

Gamuda Gardens also had the grand opening of its new 18,000 sq ft experience gallery in April 2019, with a star-studded concert by several Astro artistes and local-born Taiwan based singer-songwriter Gary Chaws.

The developer participated in the Home Ownership Campaign (HOC) 2019 where discounts were available and stamp duty will be exempted.

The township’s first service apartment, Gaia Residences, was launched in September 2018, while its linked semi-detached houses, known as Jovita, was launched in May 2019. A key feature of Jovita is that all units will have a courtyard, with the flexibility to turn it into a garden or an extended dining area.

Location

Gamuda Gardens is located at the northern part of Kuala Lumpur. It is just 5 minutes’ drive from the KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR), North-South Expressways (NSE) and Guthrie Corridor Expressway respectively.

With direct access from the NSE, the travel distance and time from the KL city centre will be reduced by about 10km or 15 minutes. Additionally, the Kuang KTM Komuter station is 5km away, and there will be a shuttle bus service from Gamuda Gardens to the Sg. Buloh Interchange Hub (MRT Lines 1 & 2) in the future. Gamuda Gardens is also located just 5km away from Kundang Estates, a boutique development that offers tranquil countryside living.

Gamuda Gardens in Sungai Buloh is strategically located next to the North-South Expressway and there will be an exit at the Guthrie Corridor Expressway

For activities, there are 2 equestrian facilities, and 3 country golf clubs close by – Kundang Lakes Country Club,  Rahman Putra Golf Club, and Tasik Puteri Golf Country Club. Families can also head to Tasik Biru Kundang for picnics, canoeing and even jet-skiing!

There’s also another type of connection that will bring people closer at Gamuda Gardens. This refers to telecommunications services. Gamuda Land Bhd and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM), via its business solutions arm, TMONE, inked a collaboration for the deployment of converged telecommunications services at Precinct 1 & Precinct 2 of Gamuda Gardens. The coverage includes Gaia Residences, the first serviced apartment at the township.

Through this collaboration, approximately 1,500 units of residences in the township will enjoy a two-year complimentary Unifi high-speed internet service of 100Mbps; which will be upgraded to a higher bandwidth upon vacant possession (VP) of their homes.

The complimentary package also comes with premium entertainment varieties from Unifi TV which include live sports, kids, lifestyle and international TV channels as well as telephony service.

For those with school- or college-going children, Gamuda Gardens is surrounded by 5 public schools and 2 international schools. Regardless of the year they are in, nearby schools ensure that parents have less hassles when it comes to ferrying them back and forth.

Analysis

Due to the improved connectivity, residential property hotspots to look out for include Selangor Vision City (under Malaysian Vision Valley), Nilai/Pajam, Semenyih/Kajang, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya, Rawang/Ijok/Kuang, Sungai Buloh and Kuala Selangor.

Some might perceive Gamuda Gardens as being far from central locations in PJ or KL. However, the location is about 15 minutes from the Damansara toll on the NSE. The developer has been actively organising events to encourage people to visit Gamuda Gardens and experience it for themselves. Based on the healthy take-up during launches, it may have worked to a certain extent. Buyers of previous phases are from different areas such as Sungai Buloh, Rawang, Kepong, Petaling Jaya and Damansara, and majority of them are families.

It was announced in May 2019 that Gamuda Land will be working with 8 local and foreign companies to bring an array of facilities to ensure a good balance of residential, commercial and leisure offerings in Gamuda Gardens. They include New Zealand-based Skyline Enterprises which will build Malaysia’s first luge attraction, Arena Legacy, Ecocana Sports, Wedding by Emma, 7-Eleven, Mr DIY, Petron and Beaconhouse (which will offer pre-school and secondary school education).

The luge facility will be built on a 7.4-acre hill site, with elevation of 45 metres, overlooking Gamuda Gardens’ greenery, lakes and waterfalls, while offering adventure rides in the sky – Skyline Zoom Ziplines. These are poised to be major and certainly, unique attractions. Expected to be completed in the second-half of 2021, the 600m luge tracks are designed with twists, turns and tunnels for a wheeled-gravity ride that provides riders full control over their descent on purpose-built tracks. The Zoom Ziplines allows adventure seekers to race at speeds of up to 80km/h.

Gamuda Gardens would appeal to nature lovers and those who seek a more sustainable living. In fact, Gamuda Gardens is a Green Building Index (GBI) Silver-rated township. Some of the green initiatives include rainwater harvesting systems for selected homes, solar water panels, community recycling centre and recycling top soil for development usage. There will also be 20ft lush green back lanes to promote a “green lifestyle” and planting of indigenous trees in the township. Approximately 142 acres of the township is earmarked for landscaping. A total of 100,000 trees will be planted in the entire 810-acre mixed-use development project.

On the commercial side, the retail and business park within Gamuda Gardens is slated to be the commercial centre for north of Kuala Lumpur and is expected to create up to 31,000 job opportunities.

Summary

For many young couples who are looking outside of Kuala Lumpur for affordable landed properties with an adequate amount of space to start their families, properties in Sungai Buloh, Rawang, and its neighbouring areas come to mind.

Gamuda Gardens in Sungai Buloh comes with play areas ideal for families.

The rapid developments in the centre of the Klang Valley has lent to the scarcity of land. Hence, new townships have sprouted at the south and north of Kuala Lumpur. Lying at the north-west of the country, Sungai Buloh and Rawang is an ideal spot for this expansion. These areas are ripening for economic boom. Both areas are highly accessible via the growing network of highways. Plus, with the Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT Line, Sungai Buloh is within a train-ride from KL city centre and most parts of the Klang Valley.

With expansive and nature-rich plots, Sungai Buloh and Rawang has earned a reputation as upscale neighbourhoods with various luxury residential developments. According to the Department of Statistics, the Greater KL North population is estimated to reach 10 million by the year 2020.

Just a few years into development, Gamuda Gardens is already an award-winning township, and with the growth potential in the location, property values is set to appreciate over time.

Some of the popular award-winning townships developed by Gamuda Land are Valencia, Jade Hills, Kota Kemuning, and Horizon Hills. In recent years, Gamuda Land has also established its brand overseas in Singapore, Vietnam and Australia. To date, it is the only property developer in Malaysia to have won The Edge-PEPS Value Creation Excellence Award for six consecutive years.
