The story of Selangor Properties is a remarkable narrative of achievement across two generations of the Wen family who took the company from modest beginnings to its place today as a highly respected property development and investment corporation.
It was in 1954 that the founders of Selangor Properties, namely Chong Chook Yew (the daughter of a Malayan immigrant tin miner) and Wen Tien Kuang (from Guangdong province in China) secured financing to acquire 1,000 acres of rubber estate located on the outskirts of the capital, Kuala Lumpur. Soon after they drew-up a five-phase master plan for the rubber plantation land and named it “Damansara Heights” after the local Damansara River. Capital was needed to develop the land and hence a publicly listed company, Selangor Properties Berhad, was formed.
From those humble days until now, Selangor Properties has built a reputation based on a resume of developments that speak of architectural leadership, quality of construction, longevity and social relevance. This can be seen in well-known developments such as Menara Millenium, Plaza Batai, The Five, The Stories of Taman Tunku and now, AIRA Residence.
Selangor Properties is driven to be more than just a property development company. We strive to create places, not to simply build buildings but places that enrich people’s lives and improve the urban environment. Hence our credo: The Art of Making Places.
AIRA Residence is another example of our application of this philosophy. It is the product of seven years of tireless effort to seek perfection in design and project execution. Working with some of the region’s leading design and construction firms, the project team was challenged at every point in the project’s evolution to constantly ask the question: how can we do better?
Property development is not just a process for Selangor Properties - it’s seen as a creatively functional form of art that starts with an idea and then steadily and carefully crafted to become a place designed to improve people’s quality of life, whether that’s a place of work, a place of residence, a leisure experience or a place to shop.
Built to a modest 17 storeys, the AIRA Residence project prioritised quality over quantity and comfort over style. Like all of Selangor Properties’ developments, it will leave a legacy as being the most sought after residential address in the prestigious Buikit Damansara locale. Once purchased, these highly valued sky homes are expected to become generational assets and difficult to acquire.
