Taman Putra Perdana is a residential enclave in the sourthern tip of Puchong, bordering Dengkil. The enclave was developed in 1997 but the attention has only been casted on it recently due to its still low subsale price, yet having a myriad of amenities.
Developed by Kenshine Corporation (a subsidiary of Talam Corporation), the leasehold neigborhood is bound to make an impact in the property market. Taman Putra Perdana is a mixed development consisted of various types of cluster homes, apartments and shops to meet the need of the residents. The self-sustaining development can be considered as one of the best kept secrets in Klang Valley as potential buyers often overlook the values it has after finding out the name of the developer. However, nowadays, people are looking more in depth into it after realising the potential it has in the property market.
Taman Putra Perdana has several apartments in its compound that include Siantan Apartment, Rista Villa Apartment, Kenanga Apartment, Rossana Villa Apartment, Teratai Apartment, Kekwa Apartment, Dahlia Apartment, Anggerik Apartment, Semarak Apartment, Seroja Apartment, La Cottage Apartment and Alpha Arena Apartment. They are scattered throughout the enclave with each have their personal quirks.
The amenities provided in Taman Putra Perdana are aplenty to suit the need of every resident. There are plenty of eateries that cater to different taste buds, schools and nurseries for families with children, multi-purpose hall and futsal court for the athletics and a mosque and a graveyard for religious purposes. Also on site are police station and Petronas petrol station.
After the completion of clover leaf interchange in the south of the enclave, the journey to major towns has been hassle free. The interchange has conveniently link together Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Kuala Lumpur and KLIA via Lingkaran Putrajaya, Lebuhraya Damansara – Puchong and South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE). The neighbourhood is 5 km from Batu 14 Puchong, 3 km to Cyberjaya and adjacent to the Multimedia Super Corridor, 5 km west of Putrajaya and 13 km north of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

In its early days, Taman Putra Perdana was much to be desired for. The early tenants have expressed woes and regrets over their purchase. The low price attracted them to the development because they were under the impression the price was due to its fairly new location. They did not know the quality of workmanship comes with the price too.
The residents of Taman Putra Perdana had to deal with flood of when the rain overflowed the lake next to their neighborhood, low quality of workmanship of their homes that include wall cracks, pipe leaks and uneven land, abandoned highway and apartment developments, drug addicts that loiter in the abandoned developments, roads collapsing that prevented the residents from going to work and steep roads that could result in them falling into the ravine. A lot of owners have to resort to auctioning their homes.
However, things have been looking better for the residents of Taman Putra Perdana as of late, since the takeover by the Selangor state in most of the developments in the enclave. La Cottage have finally completed and Lingkaran Putrajaya can finally be of use. The setbacks had also prompted the Malay majority residents to build a stronger sense of community and they often participate in activities together. The security guards in front of each cluster area is one of the results of their bonding.
The clover leaf interchange has truly added more value to the homes in Taman Putra Perdana. The Lingkaran Putrajaya shortens the journey to Cyberjaya to 20 minutes. Therefore, property investors may want to look into this area as Cyberjaya has many colleges and universities with students in need of accommodation. Moreover, the government civil servants working in Putrajaya can afford to buy their own properties with the still lucrative price tag.
The Taman Perdana Putra it is now is no longer once it has been before. The only horror story that makes the news nowadays was the robbery and murder case of a computer engineer in his home in December 2012. But other than that, this neighborhood seems to a good piece of property to own.
