Vista Bangi is set to be one of the most anticipated development projects urbanites can look forward to residing.
Vista Bangi Location
Vista Bangi is located at Jalan Reko in Kajang where it sits at the edge of Kajang and close to Bangi. Kajang is approximately 21 km away from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur with Cheras, Semenyih, Bangi and Putrajaya being few of the immediate neighbours to the town. As one of the relatively large townships in the eastern region of Selangor with a population of at least 800,000 in 2010, Kajang has become a host to a growing population of urbanites looking for an affordable place to stay outside the city centre.
The history of Kajang started off with the first settlement in 1709 and it was founded in 1807 after the Klang War. It subsequently earned the reputation as a modern town due to the opening of coffee estates in the 1890s. The expansion of Kajang further progressed in the 1980s when the house prices in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya started to increase due to high housing demand. Fast forward to today, Kajang has become a popular place for both residing and food hunting.
Numerous development projects have taken place in Kajang due to the availability of large tracts of lands. A range of residential properties from terraced houses to semi-detached houses and low-cost apartments to premium condominiums are available in the region. Few of the development areas that have sprouted within the region include Sungai Chua, Taman Prima Saujana and Taman Kajang Perdana and not to mention several older development areas such as Taman Bukit Mewah, Taman Jasmin and Taman Kajang Prima still receive attention from prospective residents due to established amenities, reasonable pricing and abundant choices of housing offerings.
In general, most development areas in the region of Kajang experience an elevation in property value due to excellent connectivity with existing major highways. This is coupled with improved public transportation system within the region as exemplified by the operation of Kajang – Sungai Buloh MRT Line, in which its construction was completed a few years ago. This area is perfect for those seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
Kajang has an array of old and modern amenities and facilities scattered around each development area. For instance, the Kajang town itself has shopping complexes of Plaza Metro Kajang and Metro Point Complex as well as old shop lots providing varieties of services such as printing, barber/hair salon, clinic and more. Development areas such as Sungai Chua, Taman Kajang Baru, Taman Sri Reko and more that are nearby the town benefit from the amenities and facilities it has.
Demographically speaking, the population of Kajang predominantly consist of Malays, followed by Chinese and Indians. The safety of residents in the region is safeguarded by the police officers based in Kajang Police Station despite the fact that Vista Bangi is close to Bandar Baru Bangi Police Station.
Vista Bangi is connected to its surrounding areas through a network of highways such as Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway (SILK), Kajang-Seremban Expressway (LEKAS), PLUS Expressway and Maju Expressway (MEX). As a result, other than the city centre, it is easily accessible to Kajang, Sri Petaling, Cheras and Seremban.
As for public transportation, Vista Bangi is just 800 m (4 minutes’ drive) away from UKM Bangi Komuter Station. Furthermore, one takes 10 minutes’ drive (5.4 km) to travel to Kajang MRT Station from the residence. Residents can, therefore, drop their vehicles off at these stations and commute to work without having to experience traffic jam on the road during peak hours.
In addition, Vista Bangi is served by bus routes of KJ04 (MPKJ/Kompleks Perhentian Kajang – Dataran Gemiliang, Putrajaya), KJ05 (MPKJ/Kompleks Perhentian Kajang – Seksyen 8 Bandar Baru Bangi), T451 (MRT Stadium Kajang – UKM) and T464 (Kajang MRT Station Feeder Bus), whereby the bus stops are located 800 m (8 minutes’ walk) away from the residence. The bus routes are useful for commuters to get around in Kajang Town as well as Bandar Baru Bangi.
Vista Bangi is surrounded by numerous schools from primary to tertiary education. Primary and secondary schools are reachable by car within 7 – 11 minutes (3.4 – 5.8 km) from the development. It is worth highlighting that New Era University College and UKM, two of the renowned higher learning institutions in the region, are reachable by car in 14 and 6 minutes’ drives (7 and 2.5 km), respectively. This is certainly convenient for students who choose to stay at Vista Bangi.

Vista Bangi Floor Plan
Vista Bangi is a freehold condominium property that comprises 1018 units across two towers of 39 storeys high. It has a medium-density nature (19 units per floor) with each tower served by five lifts. Vista Bangi offers three layouts, i.e., Types A, B and C, ranging from 501 – 1000 sq. ft. that buyers can choose from. Apart from Type C units, Types A and B units have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the other hand, all unit types are attached with a balcony as part of the standard design layout. Residents at Vista Bangi can enjoy an unobstructed view of the scenery nearby due to the absence of high-rise buildings around the residence.
Type A is the largest unit with a built-up size of 1000 sq. ft.whereas Type B is the standard unit of 850 sq. ft.. One of the two bathrooms is located in the master bedroom while the other is a shared bathroom for both unit types. These two unit types adopt an open kitchen concept whereby the kitchen, dining area and living area are connected without partitions. The main difference between the layouts of Types A and B units lies in the location of the third bedroom whereby it is located away from the other bedrooms in Type B, as opposed to all adjacent bedrooms in Type A. Both types of units perfectly suit small families and also college/university students who plan to stay together in a unit during their studies.

Vista Bangi Property Analysis
The construction of Vista Bangi is scheduled to be completed in 2021 with Cheras Hong Soon Development Sdn Bhd being the developer. There are three main selling points of Vista Bangi that appeals to buyers. First, it is easily accessible via major roads and highways and at the same time allows one to travel to other areas nearby without many difficulties by using the extensive public transportation system in the area. Second, Vista Bangi is surrounded by a wide range of facilities and amenities that provide convenience for prospective residents without having to travel far. Third, its reasonable pricing with adequate facilities and amenities offered is a good deal that should not be missed. On a side note, its location and the medium density nature may not be suitable for purchasers who are looking to reside in an exclusive development that is located in a more high-end neighbourhood.
It is obvious that Vista Bangi aims at niche residents of couples and small families from low- to medium-income spectrum due to affordable selling prices. Its location, near to higher learning institutions, perfectly suits students who wish to avoid the hassle of commuting to campus. Besides that, the choices of unit layouts accommodate students as well as working adults. Last but not least, Vista Bangi is attractive for prospective investors who are considering renting their properties to students while enjoying its capital appreciation in the coming years.
Two relevant residential development projects, i.e. Hijauan Heights and Green Villa Apartment, have been selected for comparison with Vista Bangi. Both Hijauan Heights and Green Villa Apartment are 7 minutes’ drive away (2.3 km) from Vista Bangi while the distance between Hijauan Heights and Green Villa Apartment is just 1.2 km (5 minutes’ drive). Vista Bangi has an upper hand over the other two properties in terms of location as it is located at Jalan Reko, one of the major roads connecting Kajang and Bangi, as opposed to Hijauan Heights and Green Villa Apartment, which are rather hidden within their neighbourhoods. The units offered at Vista Bangi are the most affordable albeit the price PSF is the highest amongst the three properties. This is due to the fact that Vista Bangi offers studio units in addition to condominium units compared to the rest, which offers standard apartment units. Another advantage that Vista Bangi holds is that it is the latest residential property in the area. The design and construction of Hijauan Heights and Green Villa Apartment are dated as their constructions were completed in 2016 and 2010, respectively.
