Subang Jaya and USJ Residential Hubs

By:

Subang Jaya began its development in the mid 70's and by 1988, the oil palm plantation that once occupied the 6 square kilometres was turned into a residential hub. Since then, the popularity of this residential area has boomed and its population has reached a massive 55 000 people. Due to the high demand for property in the area, the developers of Subang Jaya have expanded the area and added USJ into the picture. The second phase provides an extra 10 square kilometres of developments to accommodate the growing population.

The popularity of Subang Jaya stems from its convenience and its strategic location. It has access to an entire network of highways that connects the residents and visitors to all the surrounding areas such as Shah Alam, Kelana Jaya, Bandar Sunway, Puchong, Kuala Lumpur , Petaling Jaya and many more.

The Federal Highway , New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), New Pantai Expressway (NPE), KESAS Highway and Ekspress Lingkaran Timur Tengah (ELITE) are all very well connected to one another and easily accessible from Subang Jaya. The shortfall of being in the middle of this network of highways is the traffic congestion cause by motorists that are passing through.

Nevertheless, Subang Jaya remains a hot spot because of the many facilities and activities that are offered around the area. Subang Parade is one of the oldest shopping malls in the country but it still manages to maintain the continuous patronage of its clientele. With 170 dining and retail outlets, it works hard to fulfil its motto of providing “Never Ending Excitement". Next to Subang Parade is one of the country's first hypermarkets, Carrefour and a local hypermarket, Giant, can be found in the USJ area.

With all its conveniences and its massive population, Subang Jaya slowly became a centre for higher education as well. Many of the large universities are located within the SS15 area of Subang Jaya. Taylors College , Inti College (Subang Campus) and Metropolitan Colleges are all within a stone's throw away from each other. The community is also furnished with a number of primary and secondary schools, a private hospital (Subang Jaya Medical Centre), many places of worship, vibrant entertainment spots and well equipped business areas.

Despite being congested and somewhat overpopulated, Subang Jaya still attracts many locals because of its potpourri of activities. Meanwhile, the municipal council, Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ), is working hard to curb the traffic congestion that plagues the community of Subang Jaya.
