NATION-BUILDING is a concept that focuses on the structure of the country and aims to deliver a national identity. Malaysians young and old have come together as a unified voice to rebuild their country; they have proven that strength lies in unity.

Building a sturdy house is no small feat. Similarly, growing a neighbourhood may take years before it bears fruit. And building a viable nation will take both tangible and intangible elements to establish a strong foundation. Public infrastructure, housing and community, as well as economic zones with strong commercial and industrial offerings are part and parcel of the nation-building process.


The cultivation of a good neighbourhood through housing developments can only be done if the well-being of the nation is at the heart of the matter. From seamless public transportation to world-class buildings, StarProperty.my explores and highlights Malaysia’s development through the years to relook at the country’s progress.

It’s a reminder that nation-building is a collective effort and there is no better time than the present for everyone to contribute to a new Malaysia.

A house is a pillar of strength that unites the family, and this collective unit forms the backbone that defines the nation. Since the end of WWII and the beginning of our nation’s independence, the concept of housing has evolved over the years. From the emphasis on practicality and functionality, today's developments amalgamate the concept of living, accessibility, space and functionality into a harmonious union.
