Taman Permai Jaya is a mixed residential neighborhood sited on Malay Reserve Land along Jalan Taman Putra in Ampang. The neighborhood is surrounded by a few residential areas such as Taman Seri Bayu, Taman Dagang Jaya and Kg Indah Permai.
Taman Permai Jaya comprises of 2-storey terraces and a low-cost flat apartment. The 2-storey terrace houses have a land area of 20’ x 60’ and built-up size of 1,684 sf. Each house is built with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Meanwhile, low-cost flat (Pangsapuri Intan) comprises two blocks of 5-storey walk-up apartment that houses units with built-up area of 646 sf and comprising 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.
For shopping and basic necessities, there are rows of shop-lots in Taman Permai Jaya. Also, Carrefour Ampang hypermarket is just 1.2km from the enclave. Bandar Baru Ampang commercial hub is within 5 minutes drive away, which contains several banks, workshops, restaurants, stationary shop and also a shopping mall, Spectrum that hosts Giant supermarket as its anchor tenant.
A few schools are within mere minutes walking distance from Taman Permai Jaya, namely SMK Taman Tasik, SRK Taman Tasik, SRK Tasik Permai, KAFA Integrasi Islahiah and SMK Tasik Permai. Other amenities are mosque (Masjid Tasik Permai) and temples (Moon Tie Quaa Temple and Permai Besar Hindu Temple) which are located within walking distance.
In terms of accessibility, Taman Permai Jaya is easily accessible via Jalan Ampang and Jalan Teratai 12 that connect to Jalan Ampang. The enclave is within 5 kilometers to access Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH) and Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2). In addition, Ampang RapidKL LRT Station is also within proximity – but requires a transit to get there.
Even though Petronas Twin Towers is just merely 11 km away, reaching it is hectic, even via AKLEH. Traffic congestion along Jalan Ampang is very bad at most times due to road bottle necking, heavy traffic and traffic lights along the road.
The terrace houses are indeed quite hefty for a terrace in Ampang, which is due to its freshness factor. However, you may also opt for some similar but older houses in established areas in Ampang such as Ampang Jaya and Bukit Indah. Taman Merdeka is also a better option with better faÃ§ade and located just next to Bandar Baru Ampang commercial hub.
