This residential development nestles in a prime location with a myriad of surrounding amenities in the mature township, including public transportation (LRT stations), shopping malls, healthcare, recreational, and education institutions.
GreenCasa CyberSouth: A green, homey review.
A total of 418 double-storey terraced homes dubbed GreenCasa is what’s offered in CyberSouth, a township spanning 417 acres of leasehold land in Dengkil by MCT Berhad.
The developer sounds familiar? Well, that’s probably because you’ve heard of MCT Consortium Berhad, a company that specialises in construction, civil engineering and mechanical and electrical works that began operation in 1999. Starting out with a paid-up capital of only RM250,000 now the asset value is estimated around RM1.33 billion for this company.
The developer first ventured into property development in 2004 through USJ One Avenue, a 448-unit condominium development and has to date successfully completed projects with a total GDV of RM1,080 million, has a remaining landbank of 296 acres within Greater KL in USJ, Cyberjaya and the surrounding areas, and have future projects totalling at an estimated RM6,723 million.
Being the first phase to CyberSouth township, GreenCasa offers eight different layouts of intermediate, corner, and end units with built-ups starting from 1,545 up to 1,913 sq ft. The prices for these homes range from RM519,800 to RM700,000.
Considering how this project is located far from Kuala Lumpur city centre, how worthy is it then either for own-stay or investment?

GreenCasa CyberSouth: An overview.
GreenCasa CyberSouth is as mentioned double storey terrace houses that consists of 418 units in total. Coming in at eight different layouts, there are three types to choose from namely an intermediate unit, an end lot unit, and a corner unit.
The built-up ranges from 1,545 sq ft, 1,719 sq ft, and 1,913 sq ft with lot sizes ranging from a 18’x65’, 20’x65’, 27’x65’, 30’x65’, and 42’x65’. Prices start from RM519,800 and can go up to RM700,000.
The intermediate units are Type A, B, and C coming in at 1,545 sq ft with a lot size of 18’x65’ and spotting three rooms and three bathrooms, 1,545 sq ft with a lot size of 18’x65’ and spotting two rooms and three bathrooms, and 1,719 sq ft with a lot size of 20’x65’ and spotting three rooms and three bathrooms respectively. Type B however is the odd one since parents would have to be creative in putting their kids together in one big junior suite of sort instead of having two smaller rooms sharing a bathroom as per the norm.
The end lot units are Type A2 and C2, both spotting three rooms and three bathrooms. Type A2 has a smaller built-up at 1,545 sq ft and lot size of 27’x65’ as compared to Type C2 that has a built-up of 1,719 sq ft and lot size of 30’x65’.
The corner units are Type A1, B1, and C1, all having the same built-up size of 1,913 sq ft, spotting four rooms and three bathrooms, and having a lot size of 42’x65’. There’s even a balcony next to the family area on the first floor, perfect for one to enjoy the view of the lawn that comes with it.
From the masterplan, this 417 acres township will also include the development of a few amenities for the residents there like commercial centres that will normally include grocery stores and clinics, apart from having a school proposed as part of the offering.
Besides that, a community club with an expected RM0.08 per square foot maintenance fee will also be made available which houses the likes of a swimming pool, a gym, and other family recreation features. A central park totalling ten acres in size for the township is definitely a plus for residents to enjoy nature at its best be it through jogging and cycling tracks, forest and riverside walks, landscaped gardens and more.
Talk about green living, eh?
Dengkil: The serene, far far away town?
Not quite. Correct on the place being peaceful but its location being next to Cyberjaya and Putrajaya isn’t so bad now, is it?
Sure it’s not Ampang or Bangsar, but the fact that people have been living in what was then considered faraway places as well i.e. Putrajaya and Cyberjaya for the past ten years or so just proves that not everyone is built for the hustle and bustle of city life now, is it?
Dengkil used to be a mining land but don’t let that fact scare you silly. Look at Bandar Sunway now. Isn’t it just thriving? So yeah, let’s not judge a place based on its past but more on what its future can hold.
In fact, the many highways like LDP, MEX, and SKVE surrounding the area provide so good a connection that it’s around 38 kilometres through MEX to get to Kuala Lumpur city centre, and around 41 kilometres through LDP to get to Petaling Jaya. That’s still far yes, but bear in mind that Putrajaya is only around 13 kilometres away while Cyberjaya is half of that, and KLIA International Airport is around 20 kilometres from where CyberSouth City is located.
Admittedly the town of Dengkil itself is a blunt, boring place. Apart from several fast food chains here and there, local restaurants, and a few modern day conveniences like shops and small clinics, don’t expect any hip and happening malls here. For that, the nearest would be Alamanda Putrajaya Shopping Centre around 16 kilometres away in Presint 1 Putrajaya. There is however a decent commercial centre called Cyber Valley Commercial Centre around 400 metres away. The nearest hospital would also be in Putrajaya Presint 9 called Hospital Putrajaya around 10 kilometres away.
Interestingly though, there’s a university closeby to CyberSouth by the name of UiTM Dengkil at only around 1.3 kilometres away. There are also primary and secondary schools like Sekolah Kebangsaan Dengkil and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Dengkil nearby for the convenience of those living in CyberSouth City, around two kilometres away.
Love the active lifestyle? Putrajaya Challenge Park 1 that houses wall climbing facilities and Putrajaya Challenge Park 2 for skateboarding and BMXing located around 1.5 kilometres away should be more than enough, right?
So if ever one is tired of nightclubs and concerts and whatnots and prefer to just live a quiet life and more in touch with nature, Dengkil is definitely a choice to consider.
GreenCasa CyberSouth: An assessment.
Now, there isn’t much mid-to-high-end residential developments in this area to make a fair comparison to GreenCasa but about 15 kilometres away from CyberSouth lies Liu Li Gardens by SP Setia. Let’s have a look how these two fare shall we?
|Name||Tenure/Land Title||Launch Price||Built-up||Approximate Maintenance Fee per Sq Ft|
|GreenCasa CyberSouth||Leasehold/ Residential||Starts from RM519,800||Starts from 1,545 sq ft||RM0.08|
|Liu Li Gardens||Freehold/ Residential||Starts from RM1,020,000||Starts from 2,963 sq ft||RM0.18|
Liu Li Gardens’ much pricier tag may be because of its location having a Cyberjaya address instead of Dengkil. And the fact that it’s a freehold property with much bigger built-up helps too. CyberSouth is then rather affordable by comparison but nevertheless, the table shows that this part of “extended KL” as one may call it has already currently fetching rather exorbitant prices, that’s for sure.
GreenCasa CyberSouth: The verdict.
If you’re working in the areas of Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya and hate to drive far despite smooth traffic, then perhaps CyberSouth is not for you. If however Cyberjaya (which is known as Malaysia’s very own ‘Silicon Valley’ by the way) or Putrajaya is where your office is located, then this area may just do it for you.
Or even as a retirement home option because obviously the product is quite good. Decent offering though a bit pricey but executed well can be a worthy buy.
What’s your take?
