In a highly urban area like the Petaling Jaya, it would be quite a wonderful surprise and breather to live in a place surrounded by natural greens and not by fading and chipping green paint. And finding a living space in PJ in these exact same conditions is even rarer. If that’s what you’re looking for in your Petaling Jaya home – some green space but still very close to the comforts of the city – 1 Bukit Utama might just exactly be the best place for you.
See, this high density condominium in the Bandar Utama area is standing right in the midst of a 9-hole golf course. If that is not a lot of greens to surround you with, then the landscaped gardens in the condo’s premises should make up for it. 1 Bukit Utama prides itself on that very feature – a garden oasis amidst the bustling urban jungle that is greater Petaling Jaya area. Voila! You get the best of both worlds!
1 Bukit Utama is a mid-rise 5-block condo complex with 596 units in total. The freehold property offers up units with built-up sizes of 1,900 to 2,000 sq. ft. each. It is the first of the planned 9-phase development by See Hoy Chan. This developer and their projects are not really known for being aesthetically excellent or outstanding, but on the contrary are quite traditional and in the opinion of many, a little too plain. If you want to live in a Martha Stewart-worthy home, you might have to squeeze out a lot of creative juices to improve your 1 Bukit Utama home. The PSF rates aren’t exactly cheap this side of town, no matter how plain the units may actually seem. Thanks to the easy access and prime location, as well as the beautiful 9-hole golf course surrounding the condo complex, the prices here are sold starting at around RM 600 per square foot. So you’d likely get a home here for at least RM 700,000 to over RM 1 million depending on the furnishing, size, and location in the complex for any of the 2+1 of 3+1 bedroom/bathroom layouts. When the other phases of Bukit Utama, including the 1000-unit 9 Bukit Utama, expect a higher density population, but expect the prices to not go any lower.

And for this price, the amenities are well worth the price:
- Swimming and wading pools
- Children’s Playground
- Multi-purpose hall
It is also quite notable that less than half a kilometer away from SMK Bandar Utama Damansara, Kolej Bandar Utama, and SJK © Damansara schools. Public transportation is also practically easy since the BDR Utama Express Bus Terminal and MRT Dataran Sunway station are less than 2 kilometers away. Major thoroughfares like the NKVE, the Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong highways, and the Penchala Link.
For all its worth, living in the 1 Bukit Utama is getting that very enviable clean, fresh air of the suburbs and the countryside but with all the convenience and fun of living right in the heart of the city.
