Bandar Ainsdale township in Seremban is the latest PR1MA project by Sime Darby which was recently launched by the Prime Minister. As part of a "gated and guarded" development, the double storey terrace houses will be landed but have strata titles. The development will also offer :
- low-rise apartments and townhouses,
- with built-up areas ranging from 734 to 1,490 sq ft
- prices ranging from RM140,000 to RM250,000.
1,800 more affordable homes are planned to be built in Bandar Ainsdale. They are only a portion of the 21,120 units of affordable homes planned to be built by Sime Darby. The target market for Bandar Ainsdale's PR1MA homes are young executives, new graduates, newlyweds, single mums, retirees and young families.
The shared facilities for this development have been touted to include community hall, place of worship, kindergarten, Klinik 1Malaysia and Kedai 1Malaysia. Asked on whether the place of worship would be a surau, Sime Darby head of strategic development, Mohd Salem Kailany, said that this would depend on the majority of the community and the decision of the local authority.
According to the developer, Projek Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan (PLUS) has agreed to build a new interchange from the North South Expressway into the site, due to be completed by November 2013. KTM has also agreed in principle to build a new KTM Komuter station within the township, to be named Bandar Ainsdale Terminal.
Completion of the homes is expected to be within two years of commencement as construction will utilise an industrialised building system (IBS).
The group has to date identified 270 acres of its landbank for PR1MA homes in various townships across the Klang Valley and Negeri Sembilan. Coming soon will be 260 units in Putra Heights and 420 units in Elmina East, Shah Alam.
