Back in January 2013, I wrote about KEN Rimba township at Seksyen 16, Shah Alam. At the time we visited the LEGIAN Residences and talked about the then upcoming JIMBARAN Residences. I was so impressed with the development that I ended up the first person to buy a unit of JIMBARAN Residences not long after.

Now, KEN launches KEN Rimba Condominium 1 the first high-rise residential development within the same multiple awards winning KEN RIMBA Township.

For those who’re not familiar with KEN Rimba. The township is situated at Seksyen 16, Shah Alam, just a mere 1 kilometer away from the Padang Jawa/iCity intersection on Federal Highway.

The township also has a covered walkway to the Padang Jawa KTM station situated some 700 meters away, or about 10 minutes on foot.

As a bonus for those who love bak kut teh, a 5 minutes drive will get you to Weng Heong and Teluk Pulai bak kut teh. This might have influenced my decision to move to the township. 🙂

Ken Rimba Condominium and Pool Villa

Together with 328 units of LEGIAN Residences and 168 units of JIMBARAN Residences, KEN Rimba Condominium 1 comprises 637 units of condominium at 1119 sq. ft. and 1183 sq. ft. as well as 16 units of penthouses (4 for block A & C, 8 for block B) and 26 units of pool villas.

The condominium is priced from RM 399,000, or from RM 357 per square foot, making it a pretty attractive prospect for first time homebuyers.

As you can see from the scaled model in the photo above, the condominium is located next to the JIMBARAN Residences, and right behind a the KEN Rimba Commercial Centre. The 109 units of commercial centre will make serve as vibrant part of the whole community, offering convenience to residents in the township.

We visited the show unit of the condominium located at KEN Rimba recently.

The design of the unit is pragmatic and make good use of space. The living room and dining area greets homeowners as you step into the unit, with a balcony opposing the entrance door that promotes air circulation and maximizes inflow of daylight. To the side is a pretty decent size kitchen that connects to the washing/drying area.

The first room (closest to living hall) is the smaller of the three rooms that is suitable for kids. Sam C.S. Tan, KEN Holdings’ group managing director, explained that they took into consideration that the width of the room must be wide enough to accommodate the length of a standard size bed. I also particularly like the huge windows for the room.

Second room is slightly larger and can easily accommodate a queen size bed and other furnishing. These two rooms share a bathroom located opposite the rooms’ doors.

I actually like this arrangement as guests don’t have to go into your room just to use the bathroom, and not having it in between the two rooms also make for much easier furniture arrangement since the rooms are now in simple rectangular layout.

Next up is the master bedroom, this is the biggest room in the unit and come with an attached bathroom as well. Like the previous two rooms, there’s also the huge windows by the side that takes advantage of the daylight.

The picture of the scale model above gives you an idea of how the floor plan is like for KEN Rimba Condominium 1. Each floor comprises of 8 units, with either the pool view or the i-City view. Each block is served by 3 elevators.

There are three blocks altogether and they are connected to the same covered carpark with the facilities floor on top.

For those who want something more special, there’s also a limited units of pool villas.

I really love the concept of the pool villa. It is basically built almost like a 2.5 storey terrace house. You park your cars at the covered car park right in front of your own unit’s lower floor, walk up the stairs and get to the living area, kitchen, and dining hall that has direct access to the facilities floor.

The three spacious bedrooms are located on the top floor of the villa and has balcony overlooking the facilities floor as well. Get one right next to the pool and you are basically living the vacation life everyday. Very cool concept, the pool villa has a built up area of approximately 2,600 sq. ft.

The pool villas are priced from RM 800,000, or RM 306 psf.

On the facilities floor of KEN Rimba Condominium 1, there’s a full Olympic length swimming pool (50 meter), a kid’s pool, badminton hall covered with greenery, gymnasium, reading area, children’s playground, community park, multipurpose hall, and cabanas too.

I need a friend who stays at the condominium so that I can visit the facilities floor!

Discuss : KEN Rimba Condominium 1, Shah Alam

  1. Proud owner here!

    • JD: we’re gonna be neighbours?!

      • I thought you got the Legian? Mine is the condo ler…but mainly for investing purposes, won’t be staying there although it’s just a stone throw away to the BKT place….

        • JD: ah, I see, wise choice. Mine’s Jimbaran so it won’t be done till early next year.

  2. Very atas place, oh i like the name of the condo, very nice very nice LOL!

  3. I’ve always wanted to get a place with my own name. Last time was Ken Damansara, but didn’t really like the Condos. Let me see if I have luck with this Ken Rimba or not. 😉

    • Ken: best of luck! it’s about time to get before prices are going even higher I think.

  4. immature

    the villa idea is interesting, having the public toilet, err i mean, having the public pool just around back 😉

  5. Finally they let ppl take photo of the show unit! Booked an unit there, wonder when can I sign SPA 🙄 and oh, do they have the brochure ready already?

    • Elvie: Not sure about brochure but SPA I believe should be quite soon. Probably going through all the legal stuff to ensure all are good before proceeding with SPA.

  6. I continue to be amazed by the amount of new developments around the city.

    • The Yum List: there are still a shortage of reasonably priced housing for young adults, I think developments like this will fit the bill.
