Pandan Utama, Pandan
Pandan Utama is a minded development project consisting of condominium, shops and shop apartments. There are also a few rows of shop lots right outside the condominium for daily necessities. It is adjacent to Sri Pinang Villa, City Garden Palm Villa and Taman Cempaka.
The units at Pandan Utama are advertised as being 1,040 sf in size. Each unit comes in 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The price for semi-furnished unit starts from RM325,000. In rental, a semi-furnished unit can generate RM1,500 per month. It is an older condominium, hence, not only relying on its immediate facilities in the compound for marketing purposes, but also depending other amenities nearby.
There are plenty of amenities near Pandan Utama. For instance, there are major banks, clinics, schools, masjid, playgrounds and shops. Tesco and Carrefour Ampang are within a short distance away. Going into the city centre takes about 10 minutes' drive away, depending on traffic. Axis Atrium is 10 minutes' of walking from the development.
Pandan Utama is near to major highways such as Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) and Ampang - Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH). Within walking distance, there are a few bus stops along Jalan F. Pandah Indah LRT station is also a 15-minute walk from the development.
Pandan Utama is mainly surrounded by landed properties and not high rise buildings. As such, those staying in the apartment do enjoy a great view of Ampang and even Genting Highlands for those staying on higher floors. As density in this area is pretty high since it is a residential area, this in turn generates high human traffic so buying a shop lot in Pandan Utama either for own business or investment does make good sense.
There are two LRT stations within walking distance. Other than Pandah Indah LRT Station, Cempaka LRT Station is also available just 20 minutes walk away. Both station makes traveling in and out of Pandan Utama convenient for non-car drivers. With Axis Atrium nearby, residents can walk to catch midnight movie or indulge in other entertainments.
