Set to be soft-launched in May, Jernih Residence @ Kajang in Selangor is a joint development between Sunway Bhd and MKH Bhd. The joint venture company is called Daksina Harta Sdn Bhd. According to Sunway central region property development division executive director Chong Sau Min, the project’s name was inspired by its close proximity to the Sungai Jernih MRT station. The white knight project sits on a site that previously had abandoned office structures, which have been demolished to make way for the development.

“By doing so, we are revitalising the area. Currently, we are working on the foundation, which will be completed in August. The GDV (gross development value) of the project is RM543 million,” he tells City & Country.

Occupying a 5.28-acre freehold parcel, Jernih Residence will offer 1,605 serviced apartment units in two blocks and 41 retail units on Levels 1 and 2. The residential units will come in four sizes — ranging from 550 to 850 sq ft — and are priced from RM270,000, or an average of RM500 psf. Most units, except some 850 sq ft units, will have one parking bay each.

The first to be unveiled in May will be Tower A. Chong notes that the developer has received more than 8,000 registrations of interest.

“Due to its proximity to the MRT station, the development’s tagline is ‘Be connected to a vibrant convenient living, MRT station at your doorstep’. Besides the train station, our other unique selling points are the freehold title, the fact that it is built by a reputable developer and the affordable pricing,” he says.

“Also, the development is easily accessible via several highways such as the Cheras-Kajang Highway, Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway and Kajang-Seremban Highway. Meanwhile, the shops on the lower floors will provide shopping and dining convenience to the residents there.”

Jernih Residence’s facilities will include a 30m-length infinity pool, children’s pool, outdoor Jacuzzi, barbecue terrace, multipurpose deck, function lawn, children’s playground, 312m jogging path and gymnasium. The indicative maintenance fee and sinking fund is 25 sen psf. 

Chong notes that the pricing allows the developer to target both homeowners and investors. He expects the project to appeal to residents in the area, especially those working in Kuala Lumpur, as the nearby MRT station would allow them to easily commute to work.

The developer’s main target market are people from the surrounding neighbourhood, the working population in the area, those operating their businesses there as well as local investors looking to make an investment and/or for capital appreciation.

“The layout is practical and there is the convenience from having shops on the lower floors. Every unit will come with a yard, so residents can cook there or put in a washing machine. They can actually put both a stove and a washing machine in the yard, as seen at our show gallery. Meanwhile, Jernih Residence is a GreenRE-certified project,” says Chong.

“Kajang has traditionally been a landed property area, but for people who want the convenience and access to KL, Jernih Residence is a good choice. High-rise developments also come with security and facilities that are not available in landed home developments.”

Sunway has yet to decide on whether to sell or keep the retail units, which will have built-ups of 378 to 1,972 sq ft. Jernih Residence is scheduled for completion by 2Q2026.
