Summary

Rimbawan Residences epitomises a high-rise development that has all the fringe benefits of being enveloped in greenery, and positioned inside an evolving “self-sufficient” township. The vision and unveiling of this township will take place within the next 15 to 20 years.

Existing educational institutions UNITEN and IUKL are currently the main pull factor of this place, with the first phase De Centrum Mall already completed. The demand for rental will mainly come from people who work in the neighbouring districts of Putrajaya, Seri Kembangan and Bangi. But Rimbawan Residences is more well-suited for purchasers with an existing family and relatives who can make full use of its in-house lifestyle facilities.
