As Small as It Gets
Suria @ North Kiara is the uniquely latest low-rise development making its presence being felt here in Segambut. Generally speaking, the development is seven storeys high with five storeys dedicated to the serviced suites, while the remaining floors function as shop or offices. It has been a massive trend for buyers opting to buy high-rise integrated properties but Suria @ North Kiara is among those few rare projects that gives a sense of privacy as there are only 200 residential units here. A low density development is always a welcoming change especially in the midst of many opting ‘the higher the better’ mantra.
Another unique attraction of Suria @ North Kiara is the sizes of the layouts. Do have an open mind and an optimistic view in embracing smaller layouts. The units here range from 713 sq ft to 850 sq ft with an average of two rooms. You will still be able to get two rooms regardless of which layout or size that you will be purchasing here.
The units generally have similar layouts. In general, its layout is elongated as it projects more space, while the rooms are aligned together along with the common bathroom. The main bedroom is a master ensuite that comes with its own bath. The terrace is in parallel with the lounge and this will provide ample of natural lighting and a view for all to share. The lounge can also be divided into the living and dining areas with minimal and smart usage of furniture.
Most of the units here are made of Type A1 and A2, which are at 713 sq ft. A major emphasis should be directed here. Despite scaled in smaller sizes, this has increased the opportunity for first time homebuyers to purchase a property in a budding neighbourhood like North Kiara. Owning a home can be made feasible as the starting price for a unit here is at RM570,000.
Just a reminder that the units at Suria come as unfurnished.
Meanwhile, the facilities are located on the rooftop. The residents here can utilise the swimming pool, wading pool, BBQ area, function room as well as the children’s playground. There are also a sun deck and a gym to encapsulate the modern lifestyle.
Do keep in mind that there will be two storeys of retail outlets and offices. Thus, there will be major conveniences within the vicinity as residents wouldn’t need to travel beyond the development in getting errands done as well as buying basic groceries.
KL’s Melting Pot
Suria @ North Kiara nestles in rustic and highly potential part of Segambut. The area has an eclectic layer of residents; from the upper-class society of Mont Kiara and Sri Kiara, to the working class district of Bandar Manjalara and Taman Sri Segambut as well as ‘kampung’ areas of Segambut Dalam and Kampung Sungai Penchala. The diverse socioeconomic backgrounds give authenticity and ‘character’ to good old Segambut.
The area is going through rapid growth given the outpouring developments from Mont Kiara and Hartamas. Both areas have now reached their peaks and land in these locations are now scarce. Hence, developers are seeking for neighbouring locations to continue the momentum, which include this portion of Segambut. Developers have even knighted the area as North Kiara in order to give a commercial appeal to the newly constructed developments here.
Welcome to North Kiara
But what constitutes North Kiara? Some have identified areas like Taman Prima Impian, Taman Sri Sinar, Bukit Seri Bintang, Bukit Prima Pelangi and Kampung Segambut Dalam as North Kiara. Meanwhile, others have quantified it as areas governed by Sri Sinar and Jalan Segambut (North), North South Highway (South), DUKE Highway (East) and Desa Park City (West) as North Kiara.
Regardless the new or old jurisdiction and name, the area is extremely accessible from almost all corners of Klang Valley and Selangor. It can be accessed by DUKE, North-South Expressway, LDP Highway, Jalan Duta, Jalan Kuching as well as Jalan Ipoh. But do be a bit wary as the area is often faced with traffic congestions. But many are hoping that the construction of the new DUKE highway (Sri Damansara Link) will be able to reduce and disperse traffic to and from MRR2 while heading towards the city center.
Ample of Amenities
The area itself has numerous older housing neighbourhoods that include Taman Segambut Aman, Taman Sri Segambut, Taman Seri Bukit Segambut, Taman Segambut Muda and Segambut Bahagia. Hence, there are countless of existing amenities and conveniences that are now accessible to Suria’s folks. These include mom and pop’s shops, clinics, restaurants, laundrettes, 7-Eleven stores and even kindergartens at the existing business and commercial centres. For those who are moving in here soon, you could easily rely on these conveniences while waiting for the retail outlets to be filled at Suria.
Among other interesting and popular amenities that are within a close commute:
- Publika, Jalan Dutamas
- TPC Kuala Lumpur Golf Course, Bukit Kiara
- Hartamas Shopping Center, Jalan Seri Hartamas
- Plaza Sri Sinar, Taman Sri Sinar
- One Mont Kiara, Jalan Kiara
- Solaris Mont Kiara, Jalan Duta Kiara
- TESCO, Taman Manjalara
- Park City Medical Center, Jalan Intisari
- International School @ Parkcity, Desa Parkcity

- Lycée François de Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Dutamas Raya
- SMK Segambut Jaya
- SK Seri Kepong
- SJK © Kepong 3

As mentioned, the potential here is immense and the sky’s the limit for North Kiara. It is a diamond the rough with enormous prospective to be at par with the likes of its sister neighbourhoods.

Spillovers are good especially in terms of development. Properties such as Suria @ North Kiara is definitely benefitting from the synergy that developers are creating in connecting it with the upscale areas like Mont’ Kiara and Hartamas. Grand infrastructures and amenities are coming in as they will serve the community here better.
Again, the immense potential of this part of Segambut is undeniable. With the rebranding phase taking place by calling it as called North Kiara, the appeal is luring urban folks to this area as a primary location to reside.
Suria @ North Kiara fits all purposes of the residents be it individuals, couples and even families. The long existing neighbourhoods have well-established schools, amenities that are a short commute away and well-connected road networks.
Its low density status is another factor that buyers should contemplate about. In the rush of pursuing high-rise mixed developments, it is great to see that there is still an emphasis on low-rise integrated development like Suria @ North Kiara.
