The Sungai Buloh New Township or known too many as the RRI (Rubber Research Institute) land is located in one of the fastest emerging area in the northern part of the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley region (GKL/KV). The site enjoys great connectivity to major highways and is located near the development belt of Damansara and Selangor Vision Valley - making it a perfect location for a 21st Century Satellite City for the northern part of Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley.
Urbanisation in GKL/KV has led to aggressive development of green filed sites and the Sungai Buloh New Township land is surrounded by fast emerging planned townships, industrial development and traditional settlements that is building up the population base of this region - providing ready opportunities for retail and commerce. Thus it is a golden oppurtunity to create an urban structure that can contribute towards Sungai Buloh New Township Master Plan. The plan will be holistic and land development will integrate with neighbourhoods, work place, transits and parks - creating a sustainable new city - one that is respectful of the context of GKL/KV urban growth.
The Development Area
Sungai Buloh is one of the fast growing urban areas in the region with the introduction of many housing estates in th area to meet the increasing demand from people working in the adjacent urban areas. The strategic location of Sungai Buloh to the highly developed urban areas around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor such as Damansara and Shah Alam is a great advantage as it makes the area highly accessible through various highways available.
With a land size of 2,330 acres, the land provides many great oppurtunities for development and has been identified as one of the mega projects to be developed under Greater Kuala Lumpur Startegic Development Project, an initiative under the 10th Malaysia Plan to stimulate growth in the region.
