As the Kuala Lumpur city is packed to the brim with launches of all kinds, focus now is particularly on the fringe areas. Puchong, south of KL, is becoming the spot for prime residential properties in Malaysia. It’s no wonder how a lot of developers have long set their sights on Puchong, including big time property developer YTL—whose repertoire in property developments is rather distinguished.
Adding to the list of posh residential properties in the Puchong area is the Lake Edge, a leasehold gated community built on some 100 acres of land. The Lake Edge incorporates the beauty of its surroundings and mother nature with its modern structure and green living, making it one sought-after property.
The Edge in Living at the Lake Edge
Blending nature and modern architecture in perfect harmony is YLT’s main objective for the Lake Edge. This objective is truly attained—as the Lake Edge includes a 12 acre lake and a 1.5 acre park. 40% of its land is dedicated to lush scenery and landscaping.
Security is top notch — this gated community offers 24-hour security to ensure security among its residents. Facilities also come aplenty. One can always indulge in luxury, which includes a tennis court, a multi-purpose hall, a barbecue area, a basketball court, and a swimming pool. All these facilities can be found on the clubhouse exclusive for residents. There is also a boat pier, a skate park, as well as a playground.
Puchong hosts a variety of shopping malls and supermarkets, including Tesco, IOI Mall, SetiaWalk, and Hypermart Bandar Puteri Mall. All these establishments can be reached within short driving distances.
Reaching Puchong is made easy because of the Damansara-Puchong Expressway or LDP, Federal Highway, Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), and Sg Besi-Puchong Bypass. Subang and Sunway can be reached in ten minutes via private transport. KLCC is a mere 30 minute drive away, as well as the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Puchong is still growing and never stopping—for the Lake Edge, prices are competitive. This April 2013, transacted prices were recorded at an estimated RM450 per square feet – a modest hike from the RM375-400 PSF launch price. Lakeside Residences (just right next door) by Glomac is also priced around the same levels, and given more launches are in the pipeline the supply factor is getting ramped up. Will this affect the asking price if at all? Use this property valuation guide to figure out the fair price for Lake Edge.

It’s no secret how YTL Developers have built their exemplary portfolio throughout the years. Its list of recognitions is not short. Back in 2009, YTL was awarded as the Best Residential Development Over Five Residences by the prestigious CNBC Asia Pacific Property. Locally-celebrated, YTL has also won several awards from FIABCI Malaysia Property Awards back in 2008 for Best in Residential Development in the Low-rise category. Aside from this, YLT was also recognised by Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM), as well as the Malaysian Institute of Planners in 2006.
Properties developed by YTL include Sentul East, Sentul West, and Centrio. These properties brought more awards for the property developer, including Best in Residential Development for the Lake Edge.
As a development from a reputable property developer, the Lake Edge is seems to be a steal. The gated community’s beautiful surroundings, the abundance of unit layouts, location plus its passion for modern architecture and modern convenience are enough to make it a good investment for everyone.
As more and more developments are launched in Puchong, the congestion on LDP seems to worsen day by day. There’s only one exit road to LDP shared by both Lake Edge and Lakeside Residences, and this means that early morning traffic jams are rather inevitable. If you want to avoid nasty jams then try to reach the PJ South toll by 6.30am – I am speaking from experience. 🙂
Puchong has always been known as middle and lower middle class; Lake Edge is positioned somewhat above that with a matching price tag. The capital appreciation is not as rapid as other areas, but we are optimistic that the prices will hold for the short term and appreciate for the longer term.
