The beauty of Park Villa Condominium is that it offers four views, thanks to the orientation of its angled towers. There are only two towers with 280 units spread over 18 floors across 4.2 acres of land, so it’s pretty low density.
At Tower 1, which is currently on sale, Type A (1323sq ft) units have two views. The units facing north will have Sunway City View while those facing south will have the Pool View.
Type B (1226sq ft) units also have two views. The units facing east will have KLCC View while those facing west will get the Puchong City and Sunway City view.
Unique Car Parking
Park Villa’s uniqueness is that residential units start from the Ground Floor.
This is because the car parking bays are all located in the basement on three floors. Every unit comes with two free car parks.
Floor Plans, Unit Types and Specifications
The larger unit Type A (1323sq ft) is the one shown in the showroom. It has 3+1 bedrooms but strangely, only two bathrooms. Perhaps so much space has been allocated to give space to the rooms that there wasn’t space left for a third bathroom. That’s a pity because you never know when an extra toilet can come in handy.
Anyhow, the unit sports a generous layout, there is a roomy feel about it and there are enough free items to make this a value buy.
There is quite an array of facilities in Park Villa. The sky deck is on the 14th floor which comes with a Gourmet Kitchenette where you can invite your friends for a cookout.
On the ground floor are the swimming pools, the water features such as Reflective Ponds and the green features such as Landscaped Gardens. There is also a Theatrette, a Cafeteria, nursery room and so on.
In-Condo Child Care Services
The provision of child care service is actually a very good idea. Of course, it is not unique to Park Villa as many other residential developments also offer it these days.
Child care or nursery service located at the place of stay offering convenience, safety and high security provides parents with plenty of peace of mind, not to mention saving them money and the hassle of having to hire transport to fetch and send the child to and fro to meet those odd kindergarten or day care hours.
Parents also do not have to rush back and forth to and from work and zip from place to place just so that transport for the child abides by those hours. This, at the end of the day, will save them a lot of time, not to mention, stress and anxiety.
Everybody knows Puchong. Or at least, everybody in KL knows Puchong. With a population of 335, 419 at the last count (in 2008) and spread over 51.71sq km (also at the last count), Puchong is a premier township − huge, bustling and in a constant state of evolution.
Puchong (pronounced Pew-Chong if you’re using a Brit to read out directions in your GPS app) spreads across the Petaling district of Selangor and spans all the way from Kuala Lumpur to the boundaries of Putrajaya.
It is so huge, it needs the jurisdiction of not one, but two local authorities – the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) for the northern part of Puchong and the Sepang Municipal Council (MPSp) for the southern part of Puchong.
Way Back When
As with most of the country, way back in the 1960s, Puchong used to be a rubber estate and tin mining town. In time, a single two-lane road grew out of this tangle to connect the inhabitants of the various settlements to their respective places of work.
It was out of this single two-lane road that Puchong germinated, ostensibly at the end of the mining and rubber tapping era, sprouting industrial parks, businesses, commercial centres and housing estates along both sides of its 40-odd kilometre length.
Yes, Jalan Puchong is a very long road.
It didn’t use to be this long but in the 1980s, when urbanisation took root along this artery, Jalan Puchong − which had to accommodate all the individual tamans (housing estate) and secondary townships that had symbiotically burgeoned in stretch and girth − also grew in length and breadth accordingly.
Beginning from the end of Old Klang Road, bypassing Bandar Kinrara, Bandar Puchong Jaya, Bandar Puteri Puchong, Taman Puchong Perdana Desa Millenia, Bandar Puchong Perdana, Bandar Bukit Puchong and a few others to Taman Putra Perdana at the border of Putrajaya, Jalan Puchong grew and grew and never stopped growing until newer highways eventually overtook and intersected it.
Cities Within A City
And of the many hubs and satellite townships that proliferated along the road, two have significant bearing on this story. One is Bandar Puchong Jaya, situated between Bandar Sunway Subang and Bandar Kinrara just before Pusat Bandar Puchong, while the other is Bandar Puteri Puchong, located just after Pusat Bandar Puchong.
Fret not if you are confused by now. Every bandar in Puchong seems to have ‘Puchong’ appended to its name and that can confound you if you are new to the area and trying to differentiate one bandar from the other. Puchong is, afterall, the sum total of all the Puchong bandars and tamans that have accumulated over time under the very huge umbrella of Puchong. If at all lost, just look at the maps below to get your bearing.
Bandar Puchong Jaya
Bandar Puchong Jaya, a satellite hub, is 1,000 acres large and was launched in May, 1990, according to the Malay version of Wikipedia (Click on the highlighted link to read more). Ninety per cent of all of Malaysia’s banks have a branch here, including Bank Simpanan Nasional. Name a bank, any bank, and chances are, it’s got a branch here. They all sit pretty in a row along Jalan Kenari 1 to Jalan Kenari 11.
Bandar Puteri Puchong
Bandar Puteri Puchong, a newish suburb, is 930 acres large and was established in February 1999. This area, with inroads that lead into the residential section, is the business and financial district of Puchong. It is where the Puchong Financial Corporate Centre (PFCC) is and where most international banks are located (Click on the highlighted link to read more from Wikipedia).
A Tale of Two Bandars
Now here is where you join the dots and step back for the big picture. Both bandars were developed by IOI Properties Group Berhad and both are still a work in progress with new launches being planned or are taking place in the present time. Bandar Puchong Jaya is the parcel next to Bandar Puteri Puchong.
And Where In All This Is Park Villa?
Park Villa Condominiums situated on Jalan Pipit in Bandar Puchong Jaya, is one of several residential and/or commercial projects by IOI Properties Group, the others include Skyz Residence, (3.1km from Park Villa) located along the last few hundred metres of the Bukit Jalil Highway at the border of Kinrara towards the start of Puchong Jaya, and others.
Bandar Puchong Jaya has, over the years, seen a slew of IOI commercial and retail developments such as IOI Mall, IOI Business Park, IOI Boulevard and so on “flagshipping” this section of Puchong.
The New ‘to-be-operational-in-2016′ LRT Station 6 of the Ampang Extension Line is called IOI Mall. It is located just outside HSBC at Jalan Kenari 5 as you will see in the picture below.
Park Villa, however, is not within walking distance to take advantage of this new LRT station which its sister Skyz Residence enjoys better, being closer to its doorstep. However, Park Villa’s location on quiet Jalan Pipit, or off Jalan Pipit is well connected by a network of roads and highways and is within a short driving distance to schools, colleges, shopping, hospitals, banks and a host of other amenities.
Where other amenities are concerned such as gourmet dining spots and watering holes, Bandar Puchong Jaya is actually renowned as quite a bit of an “eat street”, thanks to the many IOI retail and office developments situated along here.
When you’re done with your banking or paying your internet bills at 24-hour TM Point, or shopped for your latest car accessory from Brothers on Jalan Kenari 5, try the luk luk motorised stalls that congregate in the parking lot directly behind HSBC. It’s quite a sight because as many as 20 of these trucks converge there nightly, serving the hungry throngs with all manner of skewered seafood, meats and vegetables which you can grill, deepfry or broil all by yourself, sort of like a “on-the-spot-cook-it-yourself” dinner right there on the roadside.
Business hours are from 6pm till you say you’re done. And that could be anytime in the wee hours. But if street food is not your cup of tea, then try the karaoke joints, pubs, coffee bars and bakeries or the Western, Eastern and Fusion bistros and brasseries that deck swanky IOI Boulevard.
Further up on Jalan Kenari 1, outside Maybank and Public bank, you will find a range of coffeeshops as well as roadside hawkers selling everything from Kacang Putih to Apam Balik with roasted chestnuts and steamed corn thrown in between on any good day. Still not enough for your wining and dining? Then cross the road and head directly for IOI Mall for full-blown shopping, dining and entertainment.
IOI Properties Group Berhad (“IOIPG”) needs little introduction. Just say, “IOI” to anybody, and they’ll go, “Oh”, their eyes lighting up with instant recognition.
IOI has become quite a recognizable brand in recent times, thanks to their IOI malls that have been spreading the word. Primarily building retail and office space, the group’s most recent achievements have been IOI City Mall (in IOI Resort City, Putrajaya), IOI Malls (in Puchong, Selangor and Kulai, Johor Bahru), One and Two IOI Square (in IOI Resort City, Putrajaya), Puchong Financial Corporate Centre and IOI Boulevard in Puchong, Selangor.
With a proven track record spanning more than three decades in the property development industry, it stands to reason why IOIPG is one of the largest property companies in the country with a landbank of 10,000 acres here and abroad, with a view to increase this number in the near future.
IOIPG was listed onto the Main Board of Malaysian Stock Exchange on 15 January 2014. Its principal activities include property development, property investment, leisure and hospitality, not just here in Malaysia but also in Singapore and China.
Apart from malls and hotels, the group has also successfully developed townships. Bandar Puchong Jaya and Bandar Puteri Puchong are their earlier examples while their latest ones are 16 Sierra in Puchong South, IOI Resort City in Putrajaya and Bandar Puteri Bangi in Bangi.
Green and Award Winning
As a socially-responsible property developer, IOIPG’s commercial buildings are designed to meet the Green Building Index (“GBI”) or are Green Mark-certified. It adopts the ISO 9001:2008 standards for its property developments and all ongoing projects are built to achieve a Quality Assessment System in Construction (“QLASSIC”) score of not less than 75%.
IOIPG has received numerous awards from FIABCI, BCI Asia, The Edge Malaysia, Asia Pacific Property Awards, and the Building and Construction Authority (“BCA”) in Singapore.
And speaking of awards, we shall do a price analysis comparison with their other property located also on Bandar Puchong Jaya – Skyz Residence@ Bandar Puchong Jaya which recently won two Asia Pacific Property Awards.

There are at least three apartment and condominium projects coming up along Jalan Pipit, Puchong Jaya. This particular road ends in a cul-de-sac. But the good news is this: The road is fully residential as far as anyone can tell at this point in time. There are no shops and office blocks mixed into the fray which means life here can be quite peaceful. This is further enhanced by the fact that Park Villa units are semi-Ds, offering even greater privacy.
The wonder of it all is that just outside the calm of Jalan Pipit is frenetic Puchong. It’s like you’re in a detached sliproad that keeps you near to everything yet far away from it all.
Of course, there are some people who argue that Jalan Pipit is jammed during rush hour. Well, to this we say: Name one road in the Klang Valley that isn’t.
At RM500psf, Park Villa is not the cheapest home you can buy along that street but it’s a home worth considering if you yearn for stillness at day’s end yet still wish to live in the middle of Puchong vibrancy.
