Well-planned Commercial Park

The rapid growth of population translates to an increasing need for various Business-to-Business and Business-to-Consumers services, namely banks, convenience stores, fresh market, restaurants, healthcare centre and so on. Anticipating this demand and investment opportunity, Reko Heights Development launched its RM100 million Reko Sentral Commercial Park at the centre point of the bustling Jalan Reko and Jalan Bangi. This prime 20-acre land boasts some 13 blocks of shop-offices. 129 shop-offices are offered on an en-bloc basis and come with individual freehold title. Block 10, which hosts 17 units of shops (ground floor) and 64 units of offices (second and third floor), is for sale on a strata basis.


To complement this commercial park, a modern three-storey wet market was recently approved by the municipal and is targeted to serve the community by end-2008. The wet-market will become a landmark for Reko Sentral, in addition to attracting more traffic to this commercial hub. For customers' convenience, some 800 parking bays will be allocated.
