About Desa Setapak
Desa Setapak is a residential development in Setapak, which neighbors other residential areas like Wangsa Maju, Wangsa Metroview and Taman Bunga Raya. The Military Police School (Pusat Latihan Polis Tentera) is located to the north of Desa Setapak.
Because of its closeness to Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), a lot of the houses here are being rented out to its students and many a time, these students subsequently continued to stay on in the rented houses after they had graduated and started working because of familiarity and convenience.
Amenities are good especially when it comes to food outlets. As many of the students and young working adults staying nearby do not cook and would eat out, this high demand encouraged many eateries offering good and cheap food.
Nearby shopping centers include Jusco Alpha Angle, Carrefour, Giant and Wangsa Walk Shopping Mall. Desa Setapak is easily accessible via Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway and MRR 2, which makes traveling to Kuala Lumpur city centre and Petaling Jaya relatively easy. In terms of public transportation, the Wangsa Maju Putra LRT station is located nearby.
