The Urban Development Authority (UDA) was established by the government of Malaysia on the 12th November 1971 to advance the nation’s planned urban development for both commercial and residential purposes. UDA was incorporated on the 12th September 1996 as UDA Holdings Sdn. Bhd., and later changed to UDA Holdings Berhad effective 14th July 1999. Today, it is a Government-Linked Company (GLC) that is fully owned by the Ministry of Finance Incorporated (MoF Inc.) and is overseen by the Ministry of Entrepreneurial Development (MED).
For over four decades, we at UDA continue to contribute towards nation building by advancing urbanisation throughout Malaysia. We remain committed towards expanding the participation of Malaysian entrepreneurs in our business eco-system. Our property development projects aim to build competitively priced quality premises for all income groups of the masses.
Led by experienced and highly qualified professionals, UDA today is a multi-billion ringgit company, with more than a thousand people, operating at a level playing field with our competitors. While the core business of our group of companies is in property development, we have diversified into the asset management business, namely shopping malls and other commercial property management, facilities management, as well as hospitality and leisure.
We are focused on our vision ‘To be the preferred organisation with diversified property and asset management businesses’, and we consistently strive to fulfil our mission of ‘Enriching life by delivering best-value products and services’. In doing so, we remain guided by our core values:
- Do the Right Thing
