From an education hub to an international township
The story of Putra Nilai began in the early 90s with the initiative of the Negeri Sembilan State Government to turn it into an educational hub. Gaining traction from the public authorities, it quickly succeeded in realizing this goal after several local and foreign institutions of higher education have decided to set up operations here. It was not until the early 2000s; however, that Putra Nilai expanded into something more when BBN Development Sdn Bhd., who is also now the developer of Putra Nilai, purchased vast tracts of its land for land development and settlement. Clearly predicting that Putra Nilai will be the future for living, working, playing, investing and learning; the developer forged ahead with their vision to turn this prime land into a township with the support of professional builders.
Today, Putra Nilai is a well-planned, 6,233-acre integrated township where an estimated 100,000 residents proudly call home. It consists of diverse property compositions ranging from affordable terrace homes to exclusive bungalows, which aesthetic appeal is further enhanced by manicured lawns, tree-lined avenues and landscaped parks. Additionally, the development also enjoys great infrastructure, highly developed transport links, reliable power and utility supplies and modern telecommunications facilities—making it highly sought-after by seasoned investors and entrepreneurs.
What initially started out as an educational hub has now gone beyond that; but having said that, Putra Nilai never forgets its roots. In addition to the early educational establishments that were already here, Putra Nilai now has its own educational institutions too. The reputable Nilai University is under the Putra Nilai’s banner alongside 3 other renowned universities. And to top it all off, Putra Nilai has its own international school with higher learning facilities to complement it. Beyond a hub for only education, Putra Nilai is also now the hub for biotechnology, medical & tourism and commercial.
One of the main driving forces for the rapid growth of Putra Nilai is attributed to the strategic location and excellent connectivity that the developmentis blessed with. Being in the Golden Triangle of the southern growth corridor, world-famed destinations such as Putrajaya,Cyberjaya, KLIA, Sepang F1 Circuit and Sepang Gold Coast can be easily reached—especially with the extensive network of highways available from here.
With so much going on, it’s no wonder why Putra Nilai has been earmarked as the state’s residential,educational and trading hub, which will be granted a ‘Bandaraya’ status in the near future, under the Nilai Structural Plan (2005 – 2020) drawnup by the Negeri Sembilan State Government. And to think it all started out as only an educational hub, and now it’s an international township offering exquisite homes and employment opportunities for thousands of people. That’s just incredible.
