MAH Sing Group Bhd’s transit-oriented development D’sara Sentral is set to be a key location in Sungai Buloh due to its direct access to the Kg Selamat mass rapid transit (MRT) station.
The Kg Selamat MRT station is one of 31 stations along the 51km Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT Line.
Mah Sing recently completed the construction of a covered walkway, which connects the development directly to the MRT station.
The completion of the walkway was very timely as the entire Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT Line was now fully operational, said Mah Sing Group Bhd group managing director Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum.
“We want to bring convenience to our buyers, and the best way to achieve this is by offering a development in a strategic location. The D’sara Sentral is situated right opposite the Kg Selamat MRT station.
“For D’sara Sentral, the focus is on its connectivity and accessibility. We are enhancing the accessibility by developing a covered walkway, which shortens the walking distance to the MRT station.
“With the improved public transport infrastructure, we believe it will further enhance quality of life and the economy of the country,” he said.
D’sara Sentral comprises both residential and commercial components on a 2.63ha site, with a gross development value (GDV) of RM937 million.
It has retail shops, a SoVo (serviced office, virtual office) tower and four blocks of serviced residences.
It is the first project in Sungai Buloh area to feature a dual-key concept for its residential units.
Leong said the retail component, which has 105 units of retail shops, has recorded an 85 per cent take-up and is scheduled for vacant possession (VP) in March next year.
“The VP of the project is timely as businesses in the retail shops will get to enjoy the ready catchment of 4,300 residents within the development as well as the nearby community.
“It is anticipated that D’sara Sentral will be the ‘catalyst of growth’ in the Sungai Buloh area. Upon completion, it will be able to garner a following to the place due to the lack of entertainment centres and activities in the area at the moment.
“It has a potential to become the hotspot for people to gather because of its promising outlook of retail shops as well as convenient accessibility,” he said.
Leong said there would be a further boost of population growth in the area as it is located near to the 936.66ha Kwasa Damansara project, which is currently under development.
Upon completion of the project, 150,000 people are estimated to reside in the area.
