Serimba Terrace is the last landed homes in Bandar Bukit Mahkota, a well-established township in Bangi. Developed by Lion Group Property, they are looking to launch high-rise projects such as condominiums and serviced apartments, and shops, in its remaining land in Bandar Bukit Mahkota in Bangi in 2021. Only a 58-acre parcel, known as Serimba Heights, remains in the township.

Serimba Terrace offers 2-storey terrace houses, and it has a gross development value (GDV) of RM76.7 million. This low-density project was unveiled over 2 phases, where the first phase of Serimba Terrace is fully booked. The project sits on an 8.71-acre freehold site next to a public lake park.

The remaining land will have high-rise developments and shops, and the developer hopes to complete everything by approximately 2025, depending on market conditions.

There’s also an additional small room adjacent to an en-suite bedroom on the ground floor, which allows residents to turn the space into the children’s study, playroom, hobby room, maid’s room, or a storage space. All units come with a balcony for the master bedroom, designated air-conditioner ledges, and a dedicated laundry area.

The project is gated and guarded, with 24 hours’ security system, single-entry entrance with guard post, CCTV surveillance, and anti-climb fencing, and facilities for residents include gyms, basketball court, and linear park. The 15ft linear park replaces the regular back lane, thus providing an extra space for recreation.

Besides the parks and basketball court, there will also be a nature-inspired children’s playground featuring a tree house, indoor and outdoor gyms, and jogging track. Additionally, the Bukit Mahkota Clubhouse is located close to Serimba Terrace, which allows residents to be members and enjoy facilities such as swimming pool, multi-purpose hall, tennis court, children’s playground, and lounge. The club house is owned and operated by Lion Group.

The launch of Phase 1 of Serimba Terrace was postponed from March to June 2020 due to MCO (Movement Control Order). This phase has 60 units. In October 2020, the developer started selling the remaining units in Phase 2. As Serimba Terrace is a strata project, buyers are the ones who will maintain and upkeep the project in the future. Thus, the developer planned and designed the project with sustainable and easy maintenance in mind.

Prices start from RM738,000, and units are sche­duled for completion in March 2023. The indicative maintenance fee is RM200 for an intermediate unit.

Analysis

Serimba Terrace is located in the heart of Bandar Bukit Mahkota. The township itself is a mature area that is running out of development land. Thus, high-rise residential projects have mushroomed there over the past few years. This is supported by the rising housing demand from the local growing population, and the growing popularity of the Kuala Lumpur south area.

serimba11 serimba10 serimba23 serimba6

Bandar Bukit Mahkota’s mid- to high-end landed homes are mainly owned by professionals and families. While the developer is not worried about the general current soft market in the country, they have highlighted that some buyers are unable to get the loan margin they want. However, the developer mentioned that they have a waiting list of buyers.

Here’s a look at residential properties in Bangi.
