The Five showcases great placemaking
A bird’s eye view of The Stories of Taman Tunku.
Residents of AIRA Residence can do their shopping at The Five, just located downhill about five minutes away. A convenience store – the Qra is located there besides other eatery outlets.

Situated in Damansara Heights, The Five offers unsurpassed connectivity with MRT, bus and taxi services at your doorstep, and immediate highway access to Kuala Lumpur City Centre and Petaling Jaya.

This is also where Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd., the developer of AIRA Residence, has its office at 45, Jalan Dungun, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur.

The Five, also developed by Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd., is a showcase of great placemaking with good management and adding value to real estate structures by improving their facades and facilities, without redevelopment necessitating their demolition, relocation of tenants and rebuilding into another high-rise structure.

Placemaking is about improving the quality of public spaces and the lives of the people who use them.

Placemaking refers to a way of improving a neighbourhood by inspiring people to reinvent public spaces and maximise shared value to strengthen the connection between people and the place.

In this context, the safe and pleasant walkability location is rejuvenated and designed as an urban attraction, drawing the people to stop over and enjoy patronising the business services there that improve urban vitality and promote people’s health, happiness, and well-being.

The practice of placemaking has reversed the decline of many neighbourhoods, creating quality places where people want to live, work, play and learn.

Apart from improving the physical characteristics of spaces, there is a deeper, more emotional purpose.

Placemaking enables people to enjoy life in the city as the practice can improve the economic viability of a place, and offer opportunities for a healthy, productive, resilient society.

Located right on Semantan MRT Station, The Five @ Kompleks Pejabat Damansara consists of 5 blocks of 4 storey buildings with a lettable area of 172,900 sq. ft.

Incorporated on October 12, 1963 Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd. is almost as old as Malaysia which was formed on September 16, 1963.

The 60-year-old company is passionately people-centric with its staff and customers, tenants, and visitors to its completed projects as examples of good placemaking.

“We believe that little touches can transform a space into a living space that enhances connections and the wellbeing of a community.

“Our ultimate purpose is to create and provide exceptional spaces for people to live, work, play and flourish.

“It is this principle that guides us at Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd. A belief that keeps us continuously driven to be more than just a property development company.”

For AIRA residents who need an impressive office for their business, Menara Milenium which is located nearby, which is another Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd.’s development project, is an ideal office location as it is one of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic office buildings, being located at the heart of Damansara Heights, Menara Milenium is situated adjacent to Damansara City and the upcoming Pavilion Damansara Heights development.

Standing 25 storeys tall with an average floor plate of approximately 22,500 sq. ft., Menara Milenium offers 560,000 sq. ft. of premium office space and is the prestigious work address for international and multinational businesses such as Ernst and Young, and ZICO Law.

The Stories of Taman Tunku by Selangor Properties Sdn. Bhd. is another low-density mixed development with a total of 19 exclusive retail lots, 40 renewed residential apartments and 26 refurbished units for business use. Located in Bukit Tunku, this address is easily accessible and has a direct connection to Jalan Duta and the Jalan Kuching highway.

The Five, Menara Milenium and AIRA Residence proximity supports the concept of urban planning for 15-minute cities in terms of placemaking which focus on proximity to the basic daily needs one needs for work and leisure, without the need to travel far. 

Sustainable construction projects have shown an ability to improve the quality of life in areas where they are built.

Creating sustainable urban hubs provides better health, socio-economic and health outcomes.

People working, shopping, and socialising within walkable distance of where they live reduces pollution and increases health and wellbeing.
