Project Details

United Point Residence upon completion

United Point Residence nestles on a 9.33-acre of land right along Jalan Lang Emas. With a great mass of land, potential residents can expect various facilities and conveniences to be built around the area for their comfort. To begin with, United Point Residence is a mixed development.

The view from the site

Tagging along with this potentially successful residential development is a shopping complex that offers varied lifestyle needs from food to fashion. Residents at United Point Residence won’t need to travel beyond the integrated development’s perimeters in getting groceries, carrying out retail therapy activities as well as entertaining themselves at the cinemas. All can be found right within the comfort of one’s home. Worry not as mall visitors will have their own separate entrance and parking space to ensure that there will not be any overlapping parking incidents with the residents.

Great amenities are all within walking distance but how does United Point Residence fare as a home?

The residence boasts of having a 3-acre facilities ground, which caters to every need of the residents here. The interlinked facilities consist of a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, pool deck, aqua gymnasium, dining pavilion, wading pool, leisure pool, gym and function room. Thus, residents could unwind with sports given the sports facilities provided, which also include an indoor badminton court. Residents can dine and entertain family and friends at the function room, multi-purpose hall or even at the BBQ area.

The elongated layout that comes without compartmentalisation make these units look spacious despite being under 1,000 sq ft. A good bargain especially for small and burgeoning families.

Location

Getting to Jalan Lang Emas

This particular location gives great emphasis on potential. The south side of Kepong in true fact is going through a massive construction phase, in terms of road infrastructures, residential developments and rail networks.

upr kepong s8

Residential developments are looming here

The area in general is located among various developed and developing areas like Desa ParkCity, Mon’t Kiara, Hartamas Heights and Segambut. It is very much accessible via various roads that include DUKE, Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan, Jalan Duta and even Jalan Kuching.

upr kepong s5

The extension to DUKE is in progress

But do be wary as the area here is often faced with jams due to the construction of the new DUKE2 highway (Sri Damansara Link) that will be cutting through the area. The new extension aims to connect the area to MRR2 and DUKE. At the same time, it also hopes to disperse traffic to and from MRR2 to the city centre. (Source: http://www.duke.com.my/main/3111/index.asp?pageid=151508)

Existing housing neighbourhoods

The area itself has numerous existing housing neighbourhoods that include Taman Segambut Aman, Taman Sri Segambut, Taman Seri Bukit Segambut, Taman Segambut Muda and Segambut Bahagia.

upr kepong s3

Plaza Sinar, a fellow mixed development

  • Plaza Sinar, Taman Sri Sinar

As mentioned, the potential here is immense and the sky’s the limit for this part of Kepong. A diamond in the rough with truly enormous prospective to be at par with the likes of Mont’ Kiara and Hartamas.

Summary

Potential seems to be the key strength for United Point Residence. The area is going through a lot of constructions but these are the key constructions in making United Point Residence competitive in the property market.

A major draw to the residence is the affordability of units on a freehold land. With a minimum of RM370,000, residents are able to own a home, while bigger families can splash RM650,000 for a bigger sized unit that comes with four bedrooms.

Another strength of the development is the fact that it is an integrated development. It will come with a mall that is able to serve the various needs of the residents as well as an interconnected KTM Komuter station for commuting purposes. KTM Komuter United Point Residence Station will be built just a stone’s throw away. Thus, commuting here wouldn’t necessarily need to depend on personal mode of transportations as public transportation will be able to assist in reducing the bottlenecks around the area.
