Bangi is an up and coming city located just 30 minutes away from the heart of Kuala Lumpur and 25 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Initially surrounded by palm oil estates, Bangi now offers the best of both worlds where you can enjoy the bustling city lifestyle yet be completely at ease amidst the tranquillity and lush greenery. Alternatively, you can enjoy a 1-hour drive to the beach of Port Dickson for a breezy getaway or extend the trip to the straits of Malacca to explore its food haven.

If you are on the lookout for new properties and are keen to explore beyond the usual urban offerings, be sure to take a closer look at their pros and cons.

1) Well-Connected Infrastructure

Though surrounded by lush green estates, this part of Selangor is more than just airports and bushes. Sandwiched between Putrajaya and Semenyih while benefitting from the spillover of the huge population in these areas, residence living in Bangi will be able to capitalize on the macro-accessibility offered which is highly synergistic. Bangi is accessible via major expressways, such as Cheras-Kajang Expressway, North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE), Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway (SILK), South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) and KL-Seremban Highway. Aside from expressways, Bangi’s infrastructure connectivity is further complemented by both KTM (Via Bangi Station and UKM Station) and MRT (Via Sungai Buloh-Kajang line), and the upcoming East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) expected to be completed by December 2026.

2) Strategically Close To Central Institutions

Most people would associate Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) as one of the earliest landmarks in Bangi and has since been regarded as a university town. Since then, other learning institutions have been established in the proximity including Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN), Open University Malaysia (OUM) and German-Malaysia Institute (GMI). Aside from higher learning institutions, Bangi is also home to various government and private training centres, including the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB), Malaysia Nuclear Agency, Petronas Leadership Centre, Bank Simpanan Negara Training Centre, RHB Complex, Maybank Training Centre, Public Bank Training Centre and EPF Training Centre. The local housing demand will be continually supported by people working and studying in the above institutions and will likely foster a like-minded community.


1) Unseen Downsides of Living in a Rapidly Developing City

Bangi has been regarded for the past 20 years as a small, quiet town that was overlooked by many when choosing as a place of settlement. While some of the accusations are not entirely baseless, it is worthwhile to note that some of the agriculture lands have been steadily converted into major township developments. As a result of the rapid development, various new toll roads have been built and this cause ingress and egress to be a frustrating affair as it imposes an additional financial burden to the users. Any attempt to use toll-free routes will usually be met with heavy vehicles that can be dangerous. Let us not forget that amenities are usually scattered far and beyond due to lack of a unifying business centre; this entails the use of the car for daily commuting.

Choosing to live in a still rapidly developing city such as Bangi will also mean that the surrounding environment may change in line with the development progress; public parks or other recreational areas may be redesignated for commercial usage and will hamper the previously enjoyed living experience.

However, the above can be mitigated by choosing to settle in a sustainable and integrated township such as the Southville City by Mah Sing. Southville City which spans across 428 acres wide of land is Mah Sing’s largest township development in Klang Valley. With an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM11 billion, Southville City merges 2 contrasting landscapes, an eastern urban area with a western tranquil space. Southville City is a sustainable living space that incorporates various daily amenities including wellness, leisure, as well as commerce and education all under one zone; this means Southville City will serve your every need without you needing to ever leave the comfort of your living space.
