Hi everyone,

I'm seriously contemplating a move to Putra Heights. But my perception all this while is:
1) Far and disconnected from the rest of the world, e.g. Fed Highway, Sunway Pyramid, Carrefour...
2) No/lack of mature commercial area, petrol station, eateries
3) Security issues
4) Lack of police station/fire station/hospital/clinics...

If anyone can tell me otherwise what a wonderful place PH is, then I will consider moving to PH. I am currently residing in Subang Jaya.

i bought a place there in laman putra. Very happy with it. It is completed but waiting for CF and some connections. There is a very well planned commercial area in the shape of a huge 'U'. There is a new link to the existing highway to KLIA which could also lead to Kesas. Best of all, it is on the hill.

There is one police station there...but I would have preferred another another nearer the shah alam exit

There are schools there but the public transport is still poor. There are plans for a hypermarket there...maybe even Tesco. They should also build a mall there, a small one. There are many pet stations being built now as well as plans for hospital and fire station.

The planning is quite nice though

1) far, but not too far. subang jaya used to be far and disconnected too in its earlier days. i find the distance and travelling time ok. i would usually get out from my house at 7am and reach my office at bangsar in 40 minutes. 1 toll only @ Rm1.60, for now at least.

2) own town center coming up slowly, but there are existing ones nearby. at USJ, Alam Megah, Seksyen 27.

3) security manageable, as with any other housing areas.

4) temporary police station is inside PH, have been manned for a few years already. there are clinics in PH but same as with #2, the ones at Alam Megah, USJ and Sek27 aren't too far away. fire station and hospital are in the plan but no dates have been set.

schools may be a problem. there are plans for them but until now none are being built in PH, the closest SK are at Sek 27 and USJ20. nearest SMK is USJ23. if you have school age kids, that maybe a bit of a hassle.

it's still a 'new' area, so some facilities are still under development. schools, sports complex, etc. that may take a while. but the population is growing, so it doesn't really have that eerie, empty feel either.

Actually Putra Heights remind me of USJ way back in 1993 up to 1998...I do hope that with good families and good infrastructure, the area will improve.

Putra Heights has the lowest crime rate in the whole area cover by the IPD Subang Jaya.

You can check for last years record on SJ Alert's website.

I've been staying in Putra Bistari for 3 wonderful years!

It's quiet, peaceful with Shah Alam, Puchong, USJ and Subang Jaya nearby.

Putra Bistari is just opposite the old Projet petrol station which is now Shell.

i CCTVs :DDont forget, PH will have as many as 3 LRT lines...

according to the local plan that we saw...the Kelana Jaya and Seri Petaling lines will end up just east of Putra Heights, while another "laluan rel" will travel along the west side of the community....

Imagine that...too bad they wont actually go into the community...

Cheers, m

I had a look at Ara Damansara as well as USJ 3A, b and C before. But Putra Heights still is the best if you ask me. All it needs now is a RAPIDKL shuttle within the area heading to Carrefour Subang Jaya. That would be perfect!

After viewing the units and comparing with the older SJ houses, PH really no fight lar... Only thing nice is that the surroundings and interior fittings are newer and better looking. But in terms of built-up size and design, old SJ is still way better.
Just my opinion ya ;)

I am helping a friend to sell his 24 ft x 75 ft house which he bought from the developer at RM 285,000 about 4 years ago. It is said by now, its market price with a 20% appreciation should be RM 342,000 but potential buyers are all offering to buy around RM 310,000 which only shows a appreciation of only 8%. So he is holding back and he has holding power. Now, do you still want to invest your hard earned money in properties in Putra Heights. The so called Taipan of Putra Heights is nothing to shout about. So many shoplots are still unoccupied. In fact it is a ghost town. There are hardly any public amenities such as schools or even banking. For those who don't look for such facilities, it is a great place to stay as it is peaceful and quiet and no traffic congestion. The last I heard, Giant Hypermarket is setting foot there.
