Taman Cempaka, Pandan
Taman Cempaka is a residential area surrounded by Kampung Pandan Dalam, Taman Bakti and Pandan Jaya. Located parallel to the LRT line, the two closest Rapid KL hubs are Cempaka and Pandan Indah and slightly further along, Cahaya Rapid KL.
The area of Taman Cempaka is also right alongside the MRR2 expressway, dividing it from Pandan Indah across the highway with an exit into the main road of Jalan Cempaka, leading commuters into the housing estate. Flats, low-cost housing, City Garden Palm Villa, quite a few 'Suraus' and a Sekolah Agama are located around this area. There is also a petrol station, and sanitary waste plant which services Taman Cempaka.
Rows of 2-storey terrace link houses surround the area with built-ups of around 1,300 sf. The entire area is on leasehold property. The Pinggiran Cempaka townhouses and apartments are actually on the border of Taman Cempaka, right along the main road of Jalan Cempaka. They are sometimes referred to as belonging to Taman Cempaka. Lots of amenities and services are available within walking distance from Taman Cempaka. The newly opened Carrefour supermarket at Axis Atrium, Tesco Hypermarket, just 3km away and the Galaxy shopping mall are amongst the shopping places within the area.
What was a quiet, not-so-well-known town is now a notable landmark within the Ampang district in the state of Selangor. Much compliments goes to RK Group of Companies for their plans to give the Pandan district a new facelift to the landscape of the area. The group introduced a lifestyle of luxury with the development of all the Axis projects (Axis Pandan, Axis Atrium, Axis Crown, Axis Residence and Axis Sohu).
Taman Cempaka which lies just across the road from the Axis properties is a beneficiary of this up-market development. In Taman Cempaka itself, property valuation will steadily increase with the facelift of the Pandan district. Currently rental is very affordable at RM1.00 psf for a 2-storey landed property while one can own a 2,200 sf home for about RM428,000. The accessibility of the area to the city center via Jalan Loke Yew, the SMART highway, and also Lebuhraya Timur - Barat to get to places in Cheras takes about 10 – 15 minutes.
