Transit-oriented developments (TODs) are the future of urbanisation in the Klang Valley.

There are already several transit-oriented projects in the Klang Valley and developers are planning for more TODs.

But these projects, valued at billions of ringgit, will not be a replica of one another as each will have its own micro-ecosystem. Already the mass rapid transit line (MRT) 1 is gradually making an impact on the way the new generation travels.

Also, extended light rail transit (LRT) lines, improved rail services and the emergence of more ride-hailing services are making TOD projects more attractive.

TOD projects have been mushrooming, mimicking and adapting lessons learned from the nation’s first transportation hub KL Sentral.

A quick count shows 24 TODs are in working progress in additon to the RM8.3 bil KL Sentral, which has a couple of parcels of undeveloped land yet to be added to the already massive project, says Zerin Properties Sdn Bhd merger & acquisitions – business space executive Kevin Low.
