Kota Samarahan – home to first-class green neighbourhood


KUCHING: Sarawak’s latest housing estate, The Precinct Grande by Hock Seng Lee Sdn Bhd, under construction in Kota Samarahan has been lauded as a first-class green neighbourhood.

Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman Datuk Peter Minos said the housing estate which is part of HSL’s La Promenade property development has various alluring features.

“You have to go and see it for yourself to understand why it is called first class, as stated by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“Firstly, it is the landscaping of joyful greens all the way that impress the eyes and well maintained by HSL itself.

“The greens start from the main entrance to right outside of every house, making it look like one nice and beautiful green garden. Moreover, every house is uniquely designed unlike the usual and conventional rows of houses,” he said in a statement on Sunday (Aug 8).

Minos pointed out that residents seeking spots for walking or jogging among the greens and safe roads could enjoy the clean and neat environment at the housing estate.

He added that the housing estate is also very safe with two guarded entry and exit points.

“Criminals like housebreakers would have to think ten times before doing anything funny there. The housing estate has guaranteed safety and security by HSL.

“Moreover, there is also a clubhouse with a big swimming pool for the residents, a nice supermarket and exotic eateries nearby at the HSL’s headquarters ground floor,” he said.

He added there were numerous institutions nearby thus contributing to Kota Samarahan being a knowledge and medical centre.

“Not to forget of the pleasant nearby surroundings that make for a happier life like the two prestigious higher learning institutions namely Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM). Besides that, there is the Sarawak Heart Centre as well as an upcoming big hospital at Unimas for medical students and Samarahan public.

“There is also the upcoming centre of research on infectious diseases as well as the existing teachers’ training college and technical training college,” he said.
