The Link is located in Bukit Jalil, which is a district that was developed to the south of Kuala Lumpur. Residential units nearby for high rise living include the Arena Green, Green Avenue, Anjung Hijau as well as the Vista Komanwel series of condominiums whilst ground housing is located in Taman Esplanad and in Jalil Sutera.
The Link faces and sits on the main road from the Bukit Jalil Golf and Country Resort to OUG. Therefore, it is able to provide good visibility for the current and potential businesses there and accessibility to it is good as well. Directly opposite this development is the Green Avenue condominium and the further construction of other condominiums in the surrounding area such as The Treez and The Z Residence will add on to the existing high density population when they are ready by approximately 2014.
This condition will create a thriving need for businesses that will be able to cater to the needs of residents and visitors such as enrichment centres, tuition centres, clinics and eateries to meet the market demand in this area. Industrially, the area has the Technology Park within close range. Fields such as IT and medicine are being nurtured within places of higher learning such as the International Medical University (IMU), The Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation (UCTI) and the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT).
In addition, there are other educational institutions nearby such as the primary and secondary schools of Bandar Baru Sri Petaling and the Sekolah Rendah Agama Seri Petaling. All of this adds on to the appeal of the property. Being in such an enviable location, The Link is very easily accessible by a few major expressways, some of which include the Shah Alam, Maju (MEX) and New Pantai (KLPE), all connecting to and leading from the area. It also has two LRT train stations to allow for easy passage in reaching the place. One bears the suburb’s name, the other is the Sri Petaling station.
The Link is also conveniently accessible to Sri Petaling, OUG, Old Klang Road, Puchong, Sunway, PJ and KLCC. For visitors, patrons or tenants of the development who do not have their own transport, there are Rapid KL buses for Bukit Jalil, Sri Petaling and Sungai Besi stations, all of which are situated quite near.
Since The Link was developed at an area that is not only bordering on a multitude of residential neighborhoods as well as fronting a few major highways, there is also the fact that there is a LRT station nearby and various new condominium completions to be taken into consideration. All of the factors above add up to the growing price appreciation of such a property as the businesses will be catering to quite a substantial population catchment. The full potential of the property will only serve to bring more benefits to the shops as there is high exposure.
However, The Link will also face the same traffic congestion issue that other developments at Bukit Jalil will experience. This is usually mostly during the peak periods since the major highways and expressways will be filled with commuters rushing to and from work. However, since there is an abundance of public transportation services available, the tenants or the visitors of this place will at least be able to have an alternative to turn to, specially during a heavy downpour which will definitely be a factor that is able to worsen the traffic conditions on the road.
