Analysis

Everything that residents need is just a short drive away, or they can just take the lift down to settle their daily needs. Plus, Tropicana Avenue is surrounded by a ready catchment of higher-end residential developments.

Built-ups range from 660 sq ft to 1,621 sq ft for the residential units.

There’s also heavy traffic (more so, during peak drive hours) at the tunnel before Tropicana Golf & Country Resort, so residents will have to be patient if they are using those roads.

There is constant potential as the population is dense, and as evidenced by neighbouring commercial areas such as Aman Suria, Dataran Prima and SunwayMas Commercial Centre, and Kota Damansara, these areas are usually crowded.

Here’s a look at residential properties in Petaling Jaya.
