The Pantai Sentral Park interchange, when ready in 2018, will connect future residents of the Pantai Sentral Park township development directly to the New Pantai Expressway and onward to the commercial, retail and residential enclaves of Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar and Mid Valley City.
A joint venture between IJM Land Bhd and Amona Development Sdn Bhd, the estimated RM52 million interchange will give residents there and the larger community easier access to major roads around the Pantai Dalam-Kerinchi area and beyond.
Pantai Sentral Park is a mixed-use development consisting of seven residential phases and six commercial phases, with a gross development value of RM2.5 billion.
Located within 58 acres, it is expected to be completed within 10 to 15 years, with 15,000 residents calling it home, according to a Pantai Sentral Park statement.
Situated at the doorstep of the MSC Malaysia Cybercentre at Bangsar South in KL, the first two residential phases, the 38-storey Inwood Residences and the 41-storey Secoya Residences, have been launched.
It is expected to be one of KL’s most sought-after addresses for residences and business, with its strategic location in the heart of the new Golden Triangle.
The urban forest city also offers investors the opportunity to gain huge returns when the interchange is ready, the statement added.
“Residents here will be able to live, work and play in a fully integrated development. With the new interchange, they will have smoother drives in and out of their homes and offices to major hotspots in Klang Valley,” said Grace Foo, sales and marketing manager of Pantai Sentral Park.
“It will also benefit those in neighbouring communities and create opportunities for development in nearby cities.”
Apart from the new interchange, Pantai Sentral Park will be reachable through the Federal Highway, Kerinchi Link, Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong, MEX Highway (Maju Expressway), Jalan Kerinchi, Jalan Gasing, Jalan Pantai Dalam and Jalan Templer.
It is also near to public transport points such as the KTM and LRT lines.
