KOTA KEMUNING, situated in Shah Alam, a mere 25km south-west of downtown Kuala Lumpur, has long been regarded as one of the Klang Valley’s most desirable locations.

Developed in 1994, it has flourished into an award-winning township celebrated for its scenic landscapes, abundant greenery, and peaceful ambiance.

Among its highly coveted developments is twentyfive7, located in the southern part of Kota Kemuning.

Conceived by property giant Gamuda Land, this self-sufficient integrated township spans 257 acres (104 hectares) and is designed to enhance lifestyles with a sustainable environment that harmoniously blends community, recreation, stunning landscapes, and a plethora of modern amenities.

Centrally situated

The name “twentyfive7” reflects the township’s commitment to providing its residents with an additional hour each day, going beyond the typical 24/7 lifestyle – thanks to meticulous master planning and exceptional accessibility.

Its strategic location makes it easily accessible via major highways such as the Shah Alam Expressway (Kesas), the North-South Expressway Central Link (Elite), the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE), the Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway (LKSA) and the upcoming West Coast Expressway (WCE).

This vibrant quayside township is also in close proximity to Shah Alam, Puchong, Klang, and Subang – making it a desirable destination.

Town making done right

Many Malaysian urbanites frequently seek homes in suburban settings that offer gated and guarded security, along with abundant green spaces to enhance their well-being and that of their families.

twentyfive7 was designed to seamlessly combine these features with the added convenience of an integrated township, complete with a wide range of amenities and facilities.

Sitting at the heart of the township is Quayside Mall, which opened its doors in December 2020 and has since become a bustling F&B and retail hub, with a growing footfall of 600,000 monthly.

This mall boasts over 100 F&B outlets, waterfront alfresco dining options, and established lifestyle retail brands including Jaya Grocer, Harvey Norman, and many others.

Quayside Mall is designed to open up to the Central Park – a pet-friendly park that connects mall visitors to an outdoor recreational space for the community.

Nestled around a picturesque lake, the park features activities including Solar Express (a solar powered kiddie train ride around the park), Waterfront Superfly (a flying fox across the Central Lake) and Flamingo Pedal Boat (a ride with breathtaking views), among many others.

But the vision of this self-sustaining township doesn’t stop at the Quayside Mall.

Soon to be unveiled is Quay District – a new waterfront mix-development designed to offer a unique mix of tenants to bring retail and F&B experiences to the community.

This new commercial hub which encompasses residential areas and shop offices is also dotted with multiple lush spots and lakes that create serene pockets of tranquility.

Vibrant commercial hub

Quay District is poised to become a wellness and education hub boasting a myriad of healthcare services, fitness centres, and educational institutions for people of all ages.

This aligns perfectly with the townships’ vision of a holistic and self-sustained development.

The recent MoU signed between Gamuda Land and a variety of wellness, education and F&B tenants in October 2023 also reinforces the confidence of notable brands in the vision of Quayside District – expanding opportunities for residents.

This thoughtful integration of nature into urban living extends to the tree-lined walkways, jogging tracks, and cycling paths available for the use of residents and nearby communities – promoting a healthier, active lifestyle.

Unique dwellings

Quayside Plaza – the first phase within Quay District – houses serviced apartments, double-storey shop offices, designer pods, and an exciting mix of F&B outlets that offer both convenience and aesthetically-designed architecture that blend in with the surrounding landscape.

Notable features include designer pods with full-glass frontage providing sweeping vistas of the lake, making it an ideal spot for al fresco dining by the water – all of which have been sold out upon the launching of the development.

At Quayside Plaza, living is taken up to a whole new level, with types of homes that range in size from 840sq ft to 2,659sq ft.

Its flagship homes, however, is Sky Villa – duplex units offering resort-like living with spacious interiors and up to five parking spaces right at the entrance, delivering an urban oasis. Gamuda Land is the first to introduce these one-of-a-kind units in Kota Kemuning, garnering positive responses from home-buyers.

This development also sets the bar high for integrated living, with a range of lifestyle concierge services designed to aid residents in arranging or procuring services that vary from healthcare and deliveries to pet care.

The doorstep services also extend to various daily needs, including parcels, personal grooming and groceries, cleaning and laundry, and more.

These concierge services are designed to place convenience at the heart of everything at the township, further enhancing twentyfive7’s concept of luxury of time.

As twentyfive7 unfolds, it unveils a vision where self-sustaining townships redefine the concept of community living.
