HISTORY

The Urban Development Authority (UDA) was established by the government on 12 November 1971 to embark on the advancement of the nation’s planned urban development across business, industry and housing. After 25 years of steadfast dedication and success, UDA was incorporated on 1 September 1996 and became UDA Holdings Sdn Bhd, before renaming to UDA Holdings Berhad in 1999 and floating as a publicly limited company on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange.

Since that watershed moment, the company has flourished, expanded and diversified. UDA's principle business within investment holding and property development has been complimented by ventures into land development, property management services and the leisure industry.

Led by a board of experienced and highly qualified professionals, UDA continues to innovate and grow entrepreneurially, successfully building Malaysia's future and bettering the lives of its citizens.
