Subang Jaya, model of modern suburban living

ONCE upon a time, Subang Jaya was seen as a remote location, deemed far from Kuala Lumpur city centre and removed from the older sections of Petaling Jaya such as Section 1.

Many even saw its proximity to Subang airport as a negative factor, citing noise pollution from the planes that land and take off. But how the times have changed. Subang Jaya is now regarded as one of the most desirable suburban addresses in the Klang Valley with property prices to match. Here are some of the reasons: 

Quality healthcare 

Back in the day, patients had limited choices when it came to private healthcare. That is no longer the case as there are now a plethora of healthcare options to cater to the growing demand.  

Among the most popular of those are the Subang Jaya Medical Centre and Sunway Medical Centre, both of which are easily accessible to Subang Jaya residents. Being close to such facilities is an important factor for many families, especially those living with older people.

Education hub  

A huge factor that boosted Subang Jaya’s property prices is the number of private colleges and universities in the locale. These include SEGi College, Sunway University and Taylor’s Lakeside campus, which combine to attract thousands of students, academics and staff to the area. 

This footfall has obviously made commercial and retail properties in Subang Jaya highly sought-after. International students as well as domestic out-of-towners have significantly boosted the rental market.  

Shoppers haven 

Shopping malls provide many of life’s needs. From the latest fashion, fine dining and all that entertainment, proximity to premium shopping malls such as Sunway Pyramid and Subang Parade is a boon.  

With new developments becoming increasingly rare due to limited land, property buyers are always on the lookout for worthwhile opportunities to invest in.  

One such development is edumetro in USJ 1. A mixed-integrated development with retail, commercial and lifestyle options, it is attracting interest since the news that the SEGi College campus will be the anchor education component. To find out more, please visit: – Dec 14, 2023
