Once a flourishing rubber plantation on a 650-acre freehold land, Bandar Baru Sri Klebang (BBSK) has blossomed and is flourishing as a busy township with a myriad of different homes in a dazzling array choices to suit all tastes and budgets.
Here amidst the landscaped bungalows, semi-detached and terraced houses, lives a community serviced with their own clubhouse, shops, petrol station, and a school where their children can go without battling with traffic.
What makes the BBSK township special is having a clubhouse of their own called The Centro, opened in 2011. The Centro is a community clubhouse with a gymnasium, 25-meter swimming pool, wading pool for kids, recreation park, 20-bay public driving range, children’s play corner, tennis courts and a café. It has quickly became a lively hub for the community.
The hypermarket, shopping mall, banks, fast food outlets and shophouses that are situated just a stone’s throw away make it easier for people living there. In this case, they do not have to travel far to get what they want.
As of now, 2000 over units with a gross development value (GDV) of RM 600 million have been sold and handed over to purchasers.
Unlike the hectic life of other big cities, Ipoh has always been known as the relaxed city, where people would get up in the mornings and bump into each other at coffee shops. In fact, it is also ranked among the world’s best places to retire in a US News article in 2014. BBSK with its mutiple choice of accommodation, convenient amenities would be the ideal place to live at with their slogan of LIVE, LEARN & PLAY.
It all started back in December 2001, when the first of the double storey detached units and single storey terrace homes were launched. The late Dato’ Lim Keng Kay who had the vision to purchase the huge plot of land, had the wish for people to return to nature and appreciate the greenery that is all around the area.
He wanted people to come to Ipoh for the greenery and not go elsewhere looking for greener pastures. Until today, his vision is still being practiced and his legacy is now led by his son, Dato’ Lim Si Boon.
Fifteen years of building affordable homes with the best quality at reasonable pricing has seen Sri Klebang boom in popularity. New developments within the enclave are constantly being added such as the series of Grand Retreats which began in February 2004 and the latest Grand Retreats 2 which launched nine years later, consisting of two-storey semi-detached homes (Abby); single-storey detached homes (Aster); two-storey detached homes (Amber) and two-and-a-half-storey detached homes (Alder).
Kinta EcoCity was the first ever to debut a show village in Perak which turned into Parklane Residences in 2005. Bungalows, semi-detached and terraces all mingle without the usual segregation as in other developments.
Strand Park came on stream in 2012 followed by Pine Park in September 2015, highlighting a 4-tier security system including stationed and patrolling guards, secured perimeter fencing, CCTV cameras along the perimeter walls and individual home alarm systems.
Show house exhibitions are always packed with people at Sri Klebang where enthusiastic potential buyers from all sorts of backgrounds would show up to browse and make enquiries, a testament to the success of all the various developments there.
The Kinta EcoCity team are definitely dedicated and passionate about what they do. Some of the events that were successfully held include Mother’s Day Party, Lunar Year Celebration, Mid-Autumn Festival and Family Fun Day.
Sri Klebang has now become one of the sought after residential hit spots, especially after the opening of AEON Klebang. Schools, hypermarket, banks, a commercial hub called Klebang Centre Point, fast food outlets and petrol stations are among the other facilities that are easily accessible in Sri Klebang. Furthermore, the now bustling-cum-strategic corridor situated along Jalan Kuala Kangsar’s main road is only 15 minutes away and 5km from the North-South Expressway (NSE).
The price of a BBSK two-storey bungalow 15 years ago was RM269,800 and today, it has gone up to about a million ringgit. Most of the people who live here are satisfied with what BBSK has to offer. With fresh air, beautiful views to enjoy everyday and facilities around, what else does a person need to ask for?
At the moment, Maple @ Pine Park, Ivy @ Strand Park, Abby @ Grand Retreats 2 and Amber @ Grand Retreats 2 are available for sale. In conjunction with the 15th year anniversary, there are special packages awaiting home buyers.
