Puncak Alam is a township in the Ijok commune of Kuala Selangor constituency in north-western Selangor, Malaysia. It is located about 30 kilometers northwest of Kuala Lumpur and 20 km NNW from Shah Alam, the state capital of Selangor.


Previously developed from a palm estate holding of FELDA (Federal Land Development Authority) within the locale of Bukit Cherakah, this township started its initial development during the late 1990s under the management of Bukit Cherakah Development Sdn. Bhd., a private company based in Shah Alam. Puncak Alam Housing Sdn. Bhd. later took over in 2001 as the principal developer of this township.

First launched with an estimated total area of 14,000 acres (57 km2) for the whole township, subsequent development sees the actual land parcel being apportioned and jointly developed with third party developers, resulting in the emergence of sub-townships within the vicinity under new names and concepts (such as Alam Perdana, Alam Jaya, Sinar Alam, Ambang Suria, Alam Suria), whilst the initially earmarked land area for Puncak Alam being significantly reduced in size.

Future development[edit]

A development plan dated 9 September 2008 released by Majlis Daerah Kuala Selangor (MDKS), the local authority responsible for the administration of the Kuala Selangor District, among others disclosed that future expansion for this township would include the completion of a Universiti Teknologi MARA by the year 2014, on an area demarcated of 1,085.75 acres (4.3939 km2), comprising 15 faculties capable of supporting 41,000 students and staffs. The same report projected that 65,798 additional units of houses/residences would be completed by the year 2015, capable of accommodating 350,000 population as compared to the current reported number of population of 25,000.
