Formerly a rubber plantation, it was developed in 1976 and was granted the status of a city in 1998. You will find all the usual suspects and main shopping attractions as one would expect in a town center, plus there is the Sunway Lagoon, which is an amusement water theme park. It is a light industrial hub that includes the Subang Hi-Tech Industrial Park. The worldwide headquarters of PROTON Holdings, Lotus Cars, Faber-Castell and other major international companies are located in the Sime UEP Industrial Park. Coworking venues have opened their doors on the streets of Subang Jaya in amidst its plethora of cafes, restaurants, boutique outlets, high-rise buildings and banks.
This is an education hub as there are a large number of international private colleges and universities such as Taylor's University College, ALFA International College and many more. In fact there are over 30 primary and secondary schools in the city pushing out tech savvy and hungry youth. Subang Jaya is a part of the growing startup scene happening throughout Malaysia. The Malaysian government has offered incentives and support for foreign tech companies to base their operations within the country, such as up to 10 years tax exemption and the ability to employ foreign workers. Today startups are in a better position to succeed more so than ever before and there is boundless positive sentiment within the industry, despite the remaining challenges to be faced.
Coworking venues appearing in Subang Jaya are giving the locals the place to gather en masse with likeminded souls where they can get their work done in a collaborative space plus there are plenty of hawker stalls to run to when the hunger pangs strike.
