Residensi Gombak 126 is located between two highways, one of which is the DUKE highway allowing easy access to Mont Kiara and Ampang. The other being Middle Ring Road 2, allowing easy access to Ulu Klang, Sungai Buloh and Bentong. Jalan Genting Klang also leads from the location to Kuala Lumpur city. It is also located near the foothills of Genting Highland, allowing for convenient weekends or even one-day trips. Apart from easy access via car, there are also several LRT stations nearby, the nearest of which is the Taman Melati Putra LRT Station.
The units in Residensi Gombak 126 are considered low density, and the built-ups are rather small to cater to small families. The location is excellent as there are many amenities nearby and accessibility is good as well. Though traffic could be an issue due to the high population density in Gombak. For investment purposes, it is priced on the high side as there is general consensus that Gombak has yet to command the price of RM550 psf. There is decent potential for appreciation due to land scarcity in Kuala Lumpur. Also, due to the small built-ups, the place would be more friendly to renters.
