Subang Olives is a mixed development comprising a condominium, an office tower and a hotel nestled in Subang Jaya. It was previously called Jana Tower and launched in 2005 but failed to take off. However, Subang Olives takes a twist when AmanahRaya Development and PJI Holdings agreed to jointly develop and manage this piece of 6.87 acres land at SS16, Subang Jaya. The developer for Subang Olives is Everest Point, one of the subsidiaries under AmanahRaya Development
Olives Commercial and Olives Hotel will be under Phase 2. Meanwhile, the 17 storey Olives Residence consists of 314 units of condominium with built up area ranging from 1,469 to 5,535 sf. The developer offers mainly penthouse design and 4 designs for typical unit. Penthouse design consists of 2 designs with different orientation, design concept and built-up area. Typical design offers by the developer ranging with different built-up area are King, Queen, Prince and Princes. There are as much as 15 designs in total offers by the developer to the house buyers.

Aside from enjoying the full facilities, Olives Residence is nearby many amenities in the city of Subang Jaya, such as Subang Parade, Empire Subang, Carrefour Hypermarket, Sime Darby Medical Centre, Monash University, Taylor’s College, INTI College and so on.
Due to its strategic location also, Subang Olives enjoy easy access from major highway such as New Pantai Express Way, Federal Highway, Shah Alam Expressway, Damansara-Puchong Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway, North-South Expressway Central Link and currently under construction is the Subang Kelana Link.
The developer Everest Point is one of the subsidiaries of AmanahRaya Development. Though the project has gone through some uncertain time, the joint venture between AmanahRaya Development and PJI Holdings managed to revive the project and completely changed the design, especially from 622 units to only 314 units of condo. Furthermore, PJI Holding has an impressive track record in construction, electrical and mechanical engineering services.
Given that there are quite few condominiums in the city centre of Subang Jaya offering smaller sizes with maximum built-up area 1,500 sf. Olives Residence differs by offering home buyers spacious units with built-up area ranging from 1,469 – 5,535 sf. Olives Residence connects residents with Olives Commercial and Olives Hotel, which gives much of the needed convenience.
Aside from that, Olives Residence offers a Central Waste Vacuum Collection System, which ensures that all the household waste is handled mechanically in a hygienic manner. It is designed to complement home buyers’ lifestyle where the condominium is situated next by the commercially area, shopping centre, as well as hotel. It is suited to city crawlers who look for a condominium which offers more than just living.
Though Subang Olives enjoys access from a network of highway and expressway, it is unavoidable that one may face traffic jam at Subang Jaya, due to the vibrant commercial area and colleges around that area, which compounding on the traffic congestion during peak hours.
By briefly looking at the price offered, one might find it is slightly lower than any other condominiums in the vicinity, around RM450 to RM550 psf. Hence, it is very good value for money.
