Semenyih, located about 8Km southeast of Kajang was once deemed a sleepy town. However, it has been gaining attention from blue-chip developers such as SP Setia and UEM Sunrise which have acquired land along the Klang Valley’s southern corridor. Recent residential developments surrounding Semenyih include Sunway Semenyih by Sunway Berhad and Setia Ecohill, a green building initiative project by SP Setia Bhd.
Semenyih is surrounded by lush greenery, scenic waterfalls, Bukit Arang and Broga Hill which allow the town’s residents to be closer to nature. The heightened interest in Semenyih can also be attributed to the completion of the Lekas Highway and the large tracts of land available for development. Semenyih is also accessible by the SILK Highway, MRR2 and the Grand Saga Highway.
It takes less than an 15 minutes’ driveto neighbouring towns such as Bangi and Kajang while it only takes a 20 to 30 minutes’ drive to Cheras, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur.
Its location is also adjacent to serveral schools and known tertiary institutes such as the Tanarata International School, Indian International School, Kolej Tunku Jaafar and the University of Nottingham Malaysia.
The area has a numberof hypermarkets – namely Tesco, Giant and Billion Semenyih.
There are lots of opportunities in the near future for Semenyih because of its strategic location. Developers are looking to buy more land here since it is cheaper than the usual favourites.
“You’ll be able to get more space for your money. Semenyih now has better connectivity with the completion of the new Lekas Highway”, opined Gallery Development managing director Tiang Kew Leong.
