meta_city is a mixed-use transit-oriented development in Seri Kembangan. It is developed by Villamas Group, and it is a RM1.8 billion project on a 12-acre leasehold site to be developed over 10 years. It comprises four towers on top of a podium, and key components include:

  • 2 towers of serviced apartments and Small-office Home-offices
  • 1 tower of branded suites
  • a hotel
  • a corporate/office tower
  • a shopping mall at the podium

meta_city offers easy access to the MRT2-Taman Putra Permai Station through a proposed link bridge integrated to the mall. This will provide commuters direct access to the mall, KLCC east, Putrajaya Central and other major townships. The development is the first integrated lifestyle-driven mixed development in Seri Kembangan.

Plans are also being drafted for a convention centre to be integrated into the mall. The developer believes that retail complexes are the way forward for greater Kuala Lumpur. In Seri Kembangan, the developer highlighted that there are no such concept malls, and they are pioneering it.

Location

meta_city is strategically located in Seri Kembangan, next to Putrajaya and Cyberjaya. There are a few universities in the area as well, including Rafflesia International School, Taylor’s International School, and Alice Smith School’s secondary campus.

As the developer sees it, the target market would want a hassle-free and productive lifestyle. They don’t want to spend too much time taking care of a property, while getting things done conveniently. As a shopping mall is part of the development, with additional retail choices in the vicinity, the target market will be able to get things done.

Analysis

Due to the rapid development over the years, connectivity to and from Seri Kembangan has improved, especially with the introduction of Maju Expressway (MEX). This has eased travels to the KL city centre (KLCC).

meta_city is a development by the Villamas Group

Additionally, with employment opportunities in KLIA and Putrajaya, there could be a spill-over of residents into Seri Kembangan. This is from the strong economy in the area, as well as the many amenities available, such as universities, businesses and more. The development could enjoy good capital appreciation and positive rental yield due to its excellent interconnectivity and wide array of amenities.
