Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Neighbourhood Review


Kota Damansara is an interesting township that was previously a forest reserve. Solely owned by PKNS, development first started in 1992; where PKNS was later joined by other private ventures with the primary ones being Sunway Bhd, Encorp, Sunsuria, Dijaya Corporation and the Andaman Group.

Development of Kota Damansara picked up drastically once it was joined by private organizations. There is a very broad range of residential areas here, mixed in with factories and office towers. Some of the areas are quite defined, where Section 9 boasts high end bungalows and a graveyard that caused much controversy, while Section 7 houses low cost flats and the MBPJ public hall.

The entirety of Kota Damansara boasts a wide mix of ethnic groups and even migrants from across all walks of life, but each section of the locality has a concentration of certain criteria of people only. As an example, Section 9 is tenanted by the high income group of Chinese and Malay ethnic groups with a smattering of expats, while Section 7 would generally house those of the lower income group.

Development has been extremely heavy in Kota Damansara with the initial property investors earning quintuple their capital in returns and growing, while its future prospects is even brighter due to the upcoming Kota Damansara MRT Station that will provide convenient transport into the city centre, all the way to Kajang.

Did you know?

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households. (Wikipedia)

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) line shows an increment in prices of essential goods on a yearly basis, while the Percentage Changes line shows the level of changes in price increments over the years. For example, a dip in the CPI line may indicate a low level of price increment as compared to the previous year while a surge in CPI line shows a high level of price increment as compared to the previous year.

The above graph shows 1.644% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 2.093% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 3.448% in the year 2014 while surging by 2.523% in 2015.

While the prices of essential goods have shown a variation in the Percentage Changes, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on the other hand indicates a reality of ever increasing prices in essential goods with increments between the years 2011 - 2015 at 102.7 in 2011, 105.1 in 2012, 107.3 in 2013, 111.0 in 2014, 113.8 in 2015.
