Taman Sri Tunas is a mixed development area consisting mainly of shop offices, linked terrace houses, apartment and a condominium named Puteri Indah. Its locality sees itself being demarcated by four major roads including Jalan Tengah, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Jalan Mayang Pasir and Jalan Mahsuri. The word ‘variety’ comes foremost to the mind when describing Taman Sri Tunas’ neighbors. The wide spectrum of mix includes industrial lots, shopping malls, shop offices, terrace houses and a condominium.
Needless to say, Taman Sri Tunas is not short of amenities in the vicinity. It is served by a whole host of shopping and grocery facilities with the likes of the Giant hypermarket, Sunshine Square, Mayang Mall, D’Piazza Mall and the furthest being Queensbay Mall which is 4.8 km away, 10 minutes by car. Even at Taman Sri Tunas doorsteps, it is served by a string of shop houses. Residents have a choice of Maybank, CIMB bank, EON bank, Agro bank and SME bank. For families with children, the Sekolah Menengah Tun Raja Uda Seri Permai and Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Permai are at hand to cater to them. They are approximately 1km away.
It is also pleasing for the parents to know that the Perpustakaan Siber Ilmu Bayan Baru is only a 15 minute walk away from their schools. The unfortunate flip side is that the Mayang Mall is directly next to the library. So parents will have to be dutifully vigilant when their children say they are going to the library to study! Other notable landmarks in the vicinity of Taman Sri Tunas are the the Masjid Umar Al Kahttab, Bayan Baru Food Court and the Penang International Sports Arena which provide further convenience and facilities for the residents nearby.
By virtue of it being surrounded by major roads, accessibility to major destinations is straightforward. For those working in the mainland, residents can access the Penang Bridge via Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah which is 12 km away. Additionally, those wanting to head towards the city’s airport can get there via Jalan Tengah. By doing so, the airport is merely 5km away or rather 10 mintues drive, if traffic permits. For those without cars, the Bayan Baru Penang Rapid Bus Hub is 0.5km away from Taman Sri Tunas.
Taman Sri Tunas seem to have a lot of good things going for it. To be honest, it is not that the township has created a certain ambiance to it, unlike e.g. the SouthBay Project. In actual fact, the mixed development seem to be a little on the plain vanilla side. It is however, the locality as well as the varied mix of its neighbors that makes the place interesting. Its locality is next to none.
Being in such a strategic location, it has access to major roads, making the route to various places straightforward and fast. Its variation of neighbors, from industrial lots to shopping malls makes it a centre of convenience and choice for residents. The retail mix, from the local small convenient shops to large supermarket chains is ample for residents to choose from.
Everyday amenities including schools, hospital, mosque, sports arenas, library and etc are just a stone’s throw from where they live and work. Thus, because of this, capital appreciation as well as the rental markets for properties in Taman Sri Tunas have remained healthy and on an uptrend.
