Below is the MRT line which connects this part of town with downtown Kuala Lumpur and beyond. Opposite you see a typical highrise condominium block (probably built sometime around 2010), like hundreds of others mushrooming throughout the Klang Valley. The green patches here are not public parks but a golf course. To left of the condo you can see 1Utama shopping mall in the distance.
