Upon completion of Ken Damansara II, some claimed that they were disappointed with the finishing and workmanship delivered. Their complaints include cheap timber skirting used and bad workmanship on tiling. Jalan SS 2/72 is the only access road to Ken Damansara II. This road is narrow and congested, as residents' cars are parked on both sides of the road. The problem can be evidenced at night after working hours. Most residents claim that the situation occurs due to most units at Casa Damansara only come with a single car park, thus their additional car has to be parked outside on the roadside. Meanwhile, each unit at Ken Damansara II comes with 2 car parks for Type A and B, while Type C comes with a single car park.Competition within the enclave along the road is stiff as Ken Damansara I, II, III, Casa Suites, Casa Damansara 1 and Casa Damansara 2, are all located next to each other. Most of them target similar market, which is young family with 1 or 2 kids. Unlike Casa Suites which targets yuppies and newlyweds. Thus, getting a tenant might be tough.Besides competition, having these rows of condos and commercial hubs located side by side also create high density within the small enclave. Due to this, the roads surrounding the area are congested. Besides that, as Tropicana City developments will soon finish, it will definitely worsen the problem. Comparing Ken Damansara II with its next door neighbors, it tops most of them. Ken Damansara II is more suitable for growing families. It possess better view than Casa Damansara 2 and Casa Suites, as the former faces SS2 neighborhood and the latter views are blocked by Tropicana City Mall and Damansara Intan Business Park respectively. Besides that, Ken Damansara II also tops Casa Suites as it holds freehold residential title, compared to the latter's commercial title.Investment wise, the location of Ken Damansara II makes it highly demanded. Its price has increased quite well for several years now and seems to move further soon. But, family might want to avoid Ken Damansara II and other residential along the road as this small enclave will be very congested, thus making it not quite suitable to grow kids.
