Setia Eco Templer, SP Setia’s eco-themed township was launched in 2016. This 194-acre township is set amongst the majestic Bukit Takun, Templer Park and Kanching rainforest reserves in Rawang, and it comprises a residential component which features English, Balinese or Peranakan themed architectural designs, and commercial properties.

The construction for the first phase will feature English-themed residential properties named Essex Gardens. Setia Eco Templer will also be home to nine creeks (Carson Creek, Alresford Creek, Bramble Creek, Oakley Creek, Cedar Creek, Benfleet Creek, Lawling Creek, Flag Creek and Turtle Creek) and three gardens (Amethyst Garden, Jewel Garden and Emerald Garden).


So it is rather fitting that the development’s tagline is The Legend of Nine Creeks. In fact, the developer has published a hard cover, and a lengthy seven minute and 10 second video which showcases said creeks and gardens, and the indoor badminton courts from the previous development which has been transformed into a grand and pillarless banquet hall that can sit 700 pax. SP Setia will also be bringing in F&B outlets and convenience stores into the clubhouse to serve the residents and residential developments nearby.

Setia Eco Templer has a Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM2 billion and will take about eight to ten years to complete from its launch date.

Project Details

The Setia Eco Templer mixed development sits between Rawang and Selayang. It features link villas, semi-detached homes, bungalows and affordable apartments, with a luxury clubhouse to address residents’ leisure needs.

In May 2016, the first phase of Setia Eco Templer saw all 176 units of 2-storey linked villas, all six 2-storey bungalows, and 25 of its 52 units of 2-storey semi-detached houses sold. All units were taken up within two weeks.

During the successful launch, the homes were sold under the Setia 10:90 programme, where buyers only need to pay a deposit of 10%, with the remainder is payable only after the property is completed. Buyers need to secure a loan before receiving vacant possession of the property. Developers who offer such packages are usually construed as financially strong.

Amantara Samara Link Villas

The houses in phase one, which has a GDV of RM282 million, will be completed and handed over in May 2019. 

2017 saw three launches in Setia Eco Templer. Q1 marked the launch of the Rumah Selangorku affordable homes and commercial units of The Grove @ Templer, while Q2 saw the launch of the 23.9-acre phase 2A, with a GDV of RM206 million. It is based on a “Peranakan Nostalgia” theme and will comprise 168 units of double-storey linked villas and semi-detached homes. Tiles and windows will showcase Peranakan motifs, and of course, Peranakan style landscape for the outdoors.

In November 2018, Setia Eco Templer launched Amantara Home Collection, Balinese-themed houses – 36 units of Samara double-storey terrace link villas, 36 units of Maya semi-detached homes and 12 units of Alila and Ayana bungalow homes. The total GDV launched was RM138 million.

Setia Eco Templer is located on the former site of the Perangsang Templer Golf Club in Templer Park, Rawang. Those who adore nature, would love it here as they will be surrounded by nature. Setia Eco Templer is near the majestic Bukit Takun, Templer Park and Kanching rainforest reserve. The developer is also working with Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) to create a natural habitat for numerous bird species that are found in the forest reserve.


The leasehold development counts Taman Rimba Komanwel Waterfalls and Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve as neighbours, and slightly further away is FRIM. This is a dream home for those who deeply appreciate green landscapes and waterscapes.

Rawang was once accessible only via Jalan Rawang and Jalan Batu Arang. The opening of the North-South Expressway (PLUS) in 1994, Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE) in 2005, Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR) in 2011, and the Rawang Bypass (Rawang-Serendah Highway) in 2017, has helped ease traffic congestion in and around Rawang town. The Rawang Bypass to LATAR has shortened travelling time from Rawang to Kuala Lumpur to about 30 minutes.

The fact that major developers have tapped into the Rawang market is a good indicator of growing demand for housing there. This could be attributed to the increased connectivity over the years and cheaper land price than those in the Petaling Jaya-Klang corridor and the southern part of the Klang Valley.

Plus, more buyers from Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya are looking at Rawang because of unaffordability of similar-sized landed properties in popular central areas.


Terraced houses are still priced between RM400,000 and RM600,000 in Rawang, while most landed terrace houses in the secondary market can easily cost more than RM1 million in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

New projects by established developers such as SP Setia is transforming the environment in Rawang. Unique concepts, modern and themed designs, manicured landscaping, gated and guarded, 24-hour security and recreational amenities, among others, have set new benchmarks. Some deem this as getting more value from their purchase.

If you are interested in a 2-storey semi-detached house that is priced at RM1.7 million, your monthly repayment amounts to approximately RM6,891 per month. This is based on a 30-year 80% LTV loan of RM1,360,000 with an interest rate of 4.5%.
