Platinum Damansara, The Rise, Mah Sing’s Klang Valley Launches

Mesra Terrace, Dutamas

The abandoned Platinum Damansara project is set to be revived big time by Newfields Property. Previously Platinum Damansara was a Dataran Mantin project which got started back in 2004. About 675 out of 700 units were sold previously and there will be a relaunch expected in March in order to move the unsold units.

Newfields Property logoPlatinum Damansara is located inside Ara Damansara, a Sime Darby township, clustered together with other residentials like Vista Subang and Ara Hill. The property is leasehold.

Newfields is known best for Puchong Gateway in the south of Puchong heading towards Cyberjaya and The Sanderson, a residential project in Serdang valued at about RM1 billion.

Mah Sing has announced a slew of projects in the Klang Valley – worth some RM7.2 billion – specifically in Kepong, Bangi and Sungai Buloh. These include:

  • D’Sara Sentral, Sungai Buloh (RM900 million) – retail shops, condominiums and Sovo units
  • Southville City@KL South, Bangi (RM5.1 billion) – linked homes
  • Lakeville Residence, Kepong (RM1.1 billion) – offices and condominiums

Mah Sing's Southbay City, Penang


These new launches come hot in the heels of the launch of The Loft@Southbay City in Batu Maung, Penang as well as the Sutera Avenue in Kota Kinabalu in January. There are also plans to build a new township in Jawi (Penang), dubbed the Southbay East. These Mah Sing chaps are relentless. 🙂

GoucoLand is launching The Rise, a series of zero lot bungalows situated inside the Emerald township inside Rawang. Valued at some RM354 million, these 180 units of bungalows come in two- and three-storey varieties with some six designs to choose from. Gross build up areas range from 3,959 to 4,560 square feet. No price information available at this time. Attend the launch at the Emerald Sales Gallery on Jalan Kota Emerald in Rawang tomorrow (February 22nd), from 10am onwards (map here). There will be firework shows, acrobatic performances as well as helicopter rides. Fun, fun, fun.
