Among the notable things about Platinum OUG Residence is that it comes with units offered under the 1Malaysia Civil Servant Housing Project (PPA1M), Putrajaya’s residential project for government employees. There are also RUMAWIP units, or Federal Territories Affordable Housing Project. Beside studios, the development also offers dual key units, which are the ideal type for renting out.

Location

One of the most attractive things about Platinum OUG Residence is it’s situated in Bukit Jalil, an already mature and bustling area in Kuala Lumpur. Another good thing is that it’s merely a 300-metre walk to the Muhibbah LRT Station.

The leasehold development, which includes affordable housing, is also just a short-drive from the heart of the capital and Petaling Jaya, thanks to its accessibility to major roads like the Federal Highway and Maju Expressway (MEX), as well as to the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), and KESAS Highway. This enables motorists to easily travel to other prominent areas like Bangsar, Sri Petaling, Subang Jaya, Kuchai Lama, and Bandar Sunway in 30 minutes or less (depending on the traffic situation).

Moreover, Platinum OUG Residence is just 2km away from two highly anticipated megamalls – Pavilion 2 Bukit Jalil, and Paradigm Mall Bukit Jalil, while existing popular shopping centres Mid Valley Megamall, and Sunway Pyramid are slightly farther away at 7km and 10km respectively.

Apart from being close to Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Resort and the Bukit Jalil Recreation Park, the leasehold residential project is also within close proximity to schools such as IMU University and APU College, while SJK(C) Lai Meng and SK Seri Indah are in the immediate vicinity.

Pros

Among the most desirable things about Platinum OUG Residence is the affordable starting price of RM299,000, which falls under the federal government’s definition of affordable housing. As a matter of fact, its home prices are substantially lower than that of two other leasehold projects in the same vicinity, namely Paraiso Residence and Residensi Bintang. Moreover, the subject development comes with a decent number of facilities and offers studios and dual key units for those looking for investment opportunities.

Cons

The biggest drawback is that the low-cost housing units – PPA1M and RUMAWIP – can only be purchased by qualified Malaysians. PPA1M is only available to government employees, while RUMAWIP is only offered to Malaysians living or working in Wilayah Persekutuan (Federal Territories) falling under a certain income bracket. Another negative thing about Platinum OUG Residence is its high density of about 1,320 units. Also, some buyers of the condo units have complained about sharing facilities with PPA1M and RUMAWIP unit owners.

Summary

Platinum OUG Residence, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur Lobby

Platinum OUG Residence is perfect for families who want to live close to the heart of Kuala Lumpur and other major urban areas in Klang Valley like Petaling Jaya, without breaking their bank accounts. However, the affordable homes in this project are only available to a select group of buyers. 

Except for those who bought the typical and more expensive condo units, the government-subsidised PPA1M and RUMAWIP units come with restrictions that may negatively impact their investment potential. For instance, there’s a moratorium for selling or renting. 

Assuming you take out a RM239,200 loan (80% LTV) with an interest rate of 4.6% that is payable in 30 years to purchase a RM299,000 unit in Platinum OUG Residence, your monthly debt instalments work out to RM1,226. Following experts’ advice that your monthly expenses on housing should not exceed 30% of your salary, you need an income of at least RM4,087 per month to be able to afford a unit in this project.
