Another draw is tourist attractions nearby such as Bukit Tabur, Berjaya Hills Resort, and Genting Highlands that make for nice weekend getaways.

Population in Setapak has increased tremendously in recent years, as more and more condominiums and commercial buildings are being established in the vicinity.

Tian said that typical tenants here include professionals as well as university and college students mainly from the Tunku Abdul Rahman University College which is located on Jalan Genting Kelang.

Loh found that students prefer condos near Jalan Genting Klang such as PV 12, PV 13, PV 15 and PV 16, as well as condos in Taman Melati, thanks to the many nearby eateries and shops, and a free shuttle-bus service by Tunku Abdul Rahman University College that covers these areas.
