Defining Bangsar

Bangsar shown within the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur
Bangsar shown within the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur

There is no official or legal definition of what constitutes Bangsar. Bangsar has been developed by various developers at different times, unlike Bandar Utama or Subang Jaya. Also unlike a few other townships in the Klang Valley such as Petaling Jaya and Subang Jaya, Bangsar is administered by another local authority. The Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur is the local governing authority. There are however several neighbourhood residents' associations and business councils, although they exercise no legal or administrative power. Image File history File links Wpbangsar. ...

Most people define Bangsar as the area bounded by Jalan Bangsar, Jalan Pantai Baharu, Universiti Malaya, Jalan Damansara (Sprint Expressway and Bukit Damansara) and Bukit Persekutuan. This would mean neighbourhoods like Bangsar Utama, Bukit Bangsar, Bangsar Park, Bukit Bandaraya, Taman SA, Bangsar Baru, Lucky Garden, Pantai Hills, and the areas off Jalan Bangsar. In other words, areas with Kuala Lumpur postcodes 59000 and 59100. The University of Malaya (Universiti Malaya in Malay) is the first university in Malaysia, and is situated on a 750 acre (3. ...

Bangsar is also home to many affluent families and this can be seen by the number of bungalows and luxury cars in this small community. The list of residents in this small community includes CEOs of multi-million dollar companies to members of Parliament to government servants. Bangsar is a small community where most people know each other because they have lived there for so long and have bumped into each other in the usual watering hole such as TMC, Bangsar Shopping Centre and Bangsar Village.


Bangsar has endless things to do which include shopping in some couture boutiques along Jalan Telawi or dining in one of the many gourmet restaurants or shopping for cars in the many high-end car dealerships.

    Neighbourhood road names

    Even defining the neighbourhoods inside Bangsar can be difficult. Different parts of the neighbourhoods were built in different phases under different names. Over time, some of these names have been dropped. For example, Bukit Bandaraya was sometimes referred to as Taman Bandaraya. Taman SA in Bangsar is physically next to the other Taman SA in Bukit Damansara, although there is no direct road access between the two.

    • Taman SA: Menerung
    • Bukit Bandaraya: Keruing, Jejawi, Bangkung, Kemaris, Tualang, Penaga), Medang
    • Bangsar Baru: Telawi, Terasek
    • Bangsar Park: Limau Besar, Limau Purut, Limau Kasturi, Limau Manis, Limau Nipis
    • Bukit Bangsar: KTM Flats, Sri Pahang Flats
    • Bangsar Utama: Abdullah, Kemuja
    • Lucky Garden: Cenderai, Taban, Tempinis, Ara Kiri
    • Pantai Hills: Bukit Pantai
    • Off Jalan Bangsar: Tanduk, Riong, Liku, Kurau, Bilis, Senangin, Tenggiri

    History

    Bangsar was initially a rubber estate. One suggestion is that it derives its name from Bunge, a Belgian, and Grisar, a Frenchman, said to be the founders of a European company that ran the estate, Bunge-Grisar. The name of this estate was soon localised to Bungsar, and finally Bangsar. In those days, Bangsar was owned by the plantation firm Socfin. It was the nearest to Kuala Lumpur.[1]


    It was later developed into a residential area.


    Bangsar, in its early days also housed the staff and their families of the then Malayan Railway (now Keretapi Tanah Melayu) and National Electricity Board (now Tenaga Nasional), especially in the Bukit Bangsar and Off Jalan Bangsar area. Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) or Malayan Railway Limited is the main rail operator in Peninsular Malaysia. ... Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is the largest electricity utility company in Malaysia with RM60. ...


    Bangsar Park was the first area to be developed. Apparently it was the first planned housing estates in Kuala Lumpur. The first houses were built in 1969. Development in Bangsar started once Socfin estates sold the land to private developers.[1]


    Bangsar, in the 1970s, was seen as a housing suburb that catered to the baby boomers settling in Kuala Lumpur. As the children of these baby boomers grew up and formed a large part of the city's young, upwardly mobile professionals, Bangsar, especially Bangsar Baru suddenly appeared hip. Unfortunately, as the children of these baby boomers have all grown up and also adding to the fact that there weren't many new developments in this area after the 80s, Bangsar's population has apparently started to age.


    Among the more popular past tenants of Bangsar include Sistem Televisyen Malaysia Berhad and Lever Brothers. Bangsar Hospital was situated at the present day Pusat Kesihatan Umum Bangsar. Until now, the New Straits Times Press which publishes Malaysia's major newspapers still operates from its headquarters here. Sistem Televisyen Malaysia Berhad (STMB) or TV3 was incorporated in 1983 as Malaysia’s first commercial television station. ... Unilever is a widely listed [1] [2] multi-national, formed of Anglo-Dutch parentage, that owns many of the worlds consumer product brands in foods, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. ... The New Straits Times is a Malaysian English-language newspaper. ...


    Today, the suburb is one of the trendiest commercial and residential addresses in bustling KL. However, its reputation as the preferred destination for those in search of pulsating nightlife has been increasingly called to question as new developments outside Bangsar have sprung up over the years.


    Geography

    McDonald's Bangsar Baru

    In general, Bangsar is a hilly suburb. It is rather flat at the southern neighbourhoods such as Bangsar Utama, Bangsar Park and the Off Jalan Bangsar area. The terrain progressively rises towards the north, before making a steep drop in elevation.

    Jalan Maarof (Ma'arof) is Bangsar's main thoroughfare. It also divides Bangsar into two main parts. On the east of this road lies Taman SA, Bangsar Park, Bukit Bangsar, Bangsar Utama and one-half of Bukit Bandaraya (postcode 59000). The other neighbourhoods (and other half of Bukit Bandaraya) lie on the west (postcode 59100).


    Landmarks

    McDonald's at Bangsar Baru is probably the most famous landmark as one passes Jalan Maarof. It was one of the earliest business establishments in Bangsar and used as a point of reference by many people in relating the location of where they are or their residence.


    An unmissable landmark is Sri Wangsaria, a huge, hillside apartment block along Jalan Ara that towers above the neat rows of houses at Bangsar Baru below.


    The Mobil service station along Jalan Maarof was sometimes used to identify the side of the road Bangsar Park is on, considering most of Bangsar was on the other side. This Mobil station was recently demolished. Mobil gas station in the Loisaida section of the East Village of New York City Mobil was a major American oil company which merged with Exxon in 1999 to form ExxonMobil. ...


    Balai Berita, the New Straits Times Press (NSTP) headquarters, is sometimes used to identify the unnamed neighbourhoods off Jalan Bangsar. The New Straits Times is a Malaysian English-language newspaper. ...


    Vegetation

    The secondary forests of Bukit Persekutuan and Bukit Damansara can be seen surrounding this part of Bangsar Park
    The secondary forests of Bukit Persekutuan and Bukit Damansara can be seen surrounding this part of Bangsar Park

    East of Bangsar Park lies Bukit Persekutuan, a low density neighbourhood developed in the colonial days and Bukit Damansara. Most of the vegetation from the forest has not been cleared, thus it would appears as if the eastern neighbourhoods of Bangsar were actually surrounded by a jungle.

    Water features

    The closest thing Bangsar has to a river is the creek next to the Verona Townhouses and along Jalan Damansara (Sprint Expressway). Even then, Sungai Anak Air Batu has a concrete bed and embankment, like a monsoon drain, and is dry most of the time. This creek begins near Taman SA, passes the Verona Townhouses and then forms the border between Bangsar and Universiti Malaya before connecting to the lake in the university. Finally, it passes through the Pantai Baharu area before joining the Klang River near Angkasapuri. Klang River is a river which flows through Kuala Lumpur and Selangor in Malaysia. ... The Angkasapuri building is prominently erected atop Bukit Putra, close to the Kerinchi stretch of the Federal Highway (Federal Route 2). ...


    A few monsoon drains were constructed when Bangsar was developed. They have since been covered up, although they remain operational.


    There is a flood retention pond next to the Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bukit Bandaraya along Lorong Maarof.


    Covers have been places on most roadside drains ever since, so they are usually not noticeable.


    Demographics

    Bangsar is a popular residential area among both Malaysians and expatriates.[citation needed]


    Unlike other suburbs in the Klang Valley, such as SS2 and Kepong (Chinese), Kelana Jaya and Datuk Keramat (Malay) or Brickfields (Indian), Bangsar is not dominated by any single race group.
