Platinum Arena Location
Platinum Arena is located along the Old Klang Road, a mature suburb between Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya. Also known as Jalan Klang Lama, it is one of the oldest and most historic roads in KL. Many neighbourhood roads have been turned into broad highways to address traffic congestion during peak hours. Despite the extensive road development, traffic jam is still prominent, especially in the morning and evening.
It is estimated that 230,000 people live along Old Klang Road with the Chinese population as a majority. More importantly, Mid-Valley Shopping Mall, one of the most popular shopping complexes in Malaysia, is situated at the beginning of the Old Klang Road.

Platinum Arena Property Analysis
Given its strategic location to various highways and convenience, Platinum Arena has become one of the sought after projects in Old Klang Road. The area is largely known as a food junction that includes fast-food chains, Japanese eateries, and Korean restaurants. Given Old Klang Road’s established development, project pricing tends to be on the higher side although the pricing is not quite as expensive as projects in KL City.
Old Klang Road is currently experiencing a noticeable development to revamp the old residential ambience for future homebuyers who aim to own modern and convenient homes. The build-before-sell strategy allows Platinum Area to stand out in the market. On top of that, given the current economic scenario in Malaysia, more people are forced to look for affordable homes. Younger working professionals and the lower-income bracket individuals often struggle to find housing options which fit their budget. However, Platinum Arena, priced at RM594 PSF, would definitely be a good prospect for them.
Platinum Arena is a great place for families seeking a modern, contented, and calm living environment. Moreover, this project is a good option for buyers living in remote areas in the city or those who have older homes and want to provide a comfortable life for their families close to everything they need.
Looking at pricing, Platinum Arena is definitely a good prospect for people from the lower-to-middle-income bracket. This covers also young professionals who seek to work in Kuala Lumpur and are looking for an affordable place which matches their paycheck. Investors may also look into purchasing a unit at Platinum Arena given its strategic location and strong rental demand.
When considering the built-up size, Platinum Arena has the typical built-up area of projects in KL. However, not many projects have 4 bedrooms in their layout; this may appeal to families with more than 2 children. Small families can invest their money in buying Type A units with 2 bedrooms, while those with larger families can choose Type B/B1, Type C, Type C1 or Type D/D1 with 3 or 4 bedrooms.
Platinum Arena sits on 2.9 acres of land along the OKR. Due to the involvement of multiple developers along Old Klang Road, the development on both sides of the Old Klang Road is haphazard in nature. In terms of land tenure, Platinum Arena offers a standard leasehold compared to its other counterparts such as CitiZen 2, Avara Seputeh, and Millerz Square. However, Platinum Arena’s leasehold tenure allows for buyers to purchase a unit at about half the price of the freehold projects.
Looking at the starting built-up size, Platinum Arena is slightly smaller than the other projects. However, its biggest unit at 1008 sq ft is the second largest after Tria at 9 Seputeh’s 4489 sq ft unit. Given the variety in sizes, Platinum Arena can capture a wider market from potential investors to medium-sized families. Platinum Arena’s largest unit allows for a medium-sized family to live more comfortably compared to other projects such as CitiZen 2 and Millerz Square which have smaller living space.
In terms of price PSF, Platinum Arena stands as the most affordable among other projects surrounding it. However, Platinum Arena’s price PSF is only RM6 cheaper than CitiZen 2’s price PSF. Buyers might want to consider their financial budget against the land tenure; for the more financially independent buyers, CitiZen 2 might be a more enticing project given its freehold tenure. The other projects, on the other hand, are clearly at least about RM 200 PSF more expensive than Platinum Arena.
