The Tropika is undertaken by Berjaya Golf Resort Bhd, a subsidiary of Berjaya Land, the pioneer developer in Bukit Jalil. This is the developer that’s constructed the area’s famous 18-hole Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort decades ago.

Berjaya Land’s other projects include Savanna that was built in 2008, followed by Covillea (2012), KM1 East and West (2014), as well as The Link 2 (2018). The firm’s first low-cost housing development, the 648-unit Residensi Lanai @ Bukit Jalil under the Rumawip scheme, is anticipated to be ready by November 2019.

One of the most attractive things about this project is its proximity to two green lungs, namely Bukit Jalil Recreational Park and the Bukit Jalil Golf & Country Resort. Apart from being close to the Calvary Convention Centre, the developer also plans to build a link bridge to connect The Tropika to The Link 2 mixed-use project, which is a bustling commercial hub.

One of the top selling points of The Tropika is its location within the thriving area of Bukit Jalil, but is still surrounded by verdant areas teeming with flora. In fact, the Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort is just next to the project, while the 80-acre Bukit Jalil Recreation Park is just opposite it.

As Berjaya Land is one of the pioneer developers in Bukit Jalil, the company has managed to secure a strategic piece of land for this freehold development situated along Jalan Jalil Perkasa.

To give you an idea on how advantageous the address is, The Tropika is well-connected to several major arterial roads. These include Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), which leads to Klang, Shah Alam and the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2). There’s the Bukit Jalil Highway, through which motorists can travel to Puchong and other areas in Selangor.

In addition, there’s the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban Expressway, which takes commuters to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), or to Johor Bahru and Singapore. Alternatively, car owners can take the Maju Expressway (MEX) if they want to go to the city capital or Cyberjaya, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

The Tropika is also close to public transportion, with the Awan Besar LRT Station, Muhibbah LRT Station, Sri Petaling LRT Station, and Bukit Jalil LRT Station within a 3km radius.

Moreover, the project is nestled within a lush area, but is still surrounded by amenities. For example, the development is close to the Calvary Convention Centre and adjacent to The Link 2, a thriving mixed-use project. It’s also a 1.6km-ride to the popular mall, Pavilion Bukit Jalil, while travelling to Paradigm Garden City OUG, Pearl Point Shopping Mall, and The Mines Shopping Mall is a breeze.

For your entertainment needs, The Tropika is next to the 18-hole Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort. It is also within proximity to the Asian Football Confederation, Bukit Jalil National Stadium, and KL Sports City.

Parents need not worry about finding a good school for their children. SMK Bukit Jalil is close at hand, likewise for SJK (C) Lai Meng, SK Bukit Jalil, SMK Bukit Jalil, Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT), and International Medical University (IMU). Sekolah Sukan Bukit Jalil, Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation (APU), and Technology Park Malaysia College are a bit farther but you can still reach them with ease.

In case of medical emergencies or routine check-ups, IMU Healthcare is just a short drive away.

What we like about The Tropika is that the development is sandwiched between two expansive green lungs – the 80-acre Bukit Jalil Recreation Park and the 165-acre Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort – which lets residents enjoy nature’s embrace right at their doorstep. Also, many studies have shown that living close to plants not only helps relieves stress, it can also help you live longer (must be all that fresh oxygen!). Another good thing is that Tropika features 68 facilities, including rarely seen ones like a fitness trail, rock climbing wall and boxing/MMA ring, as well as a vegetable patch-cum-urban farming garden.

This project has very few downsides, the first being the starting price of the residential units is higher than Berjaya Land’s nearby project The Link 2 Residences, as shown in the above table. While The Tropika’s price doesn’t fall within the affordable category, it is still reasonably priced when compared with other similarly freehold projects in the vicinity, such as The Park Sky Residence.

However, the biggest con is the proposed maintenance fee of RM0.42 per sq ft, which means those who bought the smallest unit will still need to pay around RM307 per month. This is somewhat on the high end, and some people fear that the maintenance fee could increase further, as the developer intends to appoint Henry Butcher to manage the freehold project. This property manager is known for charging a high amount, but has a reputation of doing their job well.

We believe The Tropika is a truly wonderful place to raise a family thanks to its multitude of facilities and serene location surrounded by lots of plant life. Often, developments close to nature are situated in remote locations, but not this one as it’s just next to a commercial hub with easy access to the rest of the state. It’s also just a short drive to the popular shopping mall Pavilion Bukit Jalil.

Buying a home here, be it for investment or own occupation, is a wise move, considering that this freehold development is located on one the few remaining developable land parcels in Bukit Jalil, except for the recreation park and golf course, which the authorities are unlikely to allow for development.

Assuming you take out a RM460,640 loan (80% LTV) with an interest rate of 4.6% that is payable in 30 years to purchase a RM575,800 unit at The Tropika, your monthly debt instalments works out to about RM2,361. Following experts’ advice that your monthly expenses on housing should not exceed 30% of your salary, you need an income of at least RM7,870 per month to be able to afford a unit in this freehold project.
