SRI HARTAMAS

 

Sri Hartamas (Glowing Estates in English) or Taman Sri Hartamas (translation 'Glowing Estates Park') is an affluent residential township in Kuala LumpurMalaysia. Sri Hartamas is located in Kuala Lumpur, under jurisdiction of the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur. The zip/postal code is 50480.

Geography

Sri Hartamas has a geographical advantage; located very close to the entrance of two major expressways that link the city with the surrounding suburbs. See New Klang Valley Expressway and Damansara-Puchong Expressway. The travel time to anywhere in the Klang Valley area, as a result is surprisingly short, even during rush hour.

Neighbourhood

Residents of the neighborhood participate in the resident's association. In years past, the association has hired a private security firm to patrol the area. The isolation of Sri Hartamas and the surrounding area made it prey to crime for a while, though this is not so prevalent today. It is next to the new Immigration Department on one side and the old tax offices on the other, so there can be delays during rush hour. A large mosque is also nearby and this does give rise to noise pollution and large volumes of traffic, particularly on Friday lunchtimes.

The homes in Sri Hartamas consists of low rise condominium /shopping centre blocks, townhouses, adjoining semi detached homes and small town bungalows. Built by a Malaysian developer in the 80s, the streets are strangely wide, compared to other areas. The wide streets turned out to a boon for multi car households that live in the area with limited garage space when the neighborhood went through a renaissance period.

Infrastructure

For Malaysia, the area conveniences reflect the demographic, a sharp contrast to other areas of Kuala Lumpur: A nursery in Sri Hartamas, aside from childcare, offers introductory classes in French. There is a disproportionate number of Japanese and Korean restaurants in Sri Hartamas, catering to the large number of Japanese now living in nearby Mont Kiara.

Amenities nearby include: 2 golf courses, a country club, a very "posh" health club and spa, several American chain stores and other conveniences, such as being within 20 minutes delivery of Pizza Hut or Dominos.
