Transforming the urban landscape

The city skyline, once filled with generic concrete buildings, looks all set to change with glittering towers that soar majestically above the rest.

Gleaming skyscrapers tower over a vast concrete jungle landscape, glittering like stars at night. Kuala Lumpur is undoubtedly a magnet for international corporations and their professionals, along with tourists and expats. It’s no surprise that foreign investors are attracted to the excellent infrastructure, rich cultural melting pot and a competitive currency exchange rate.

Developers are thus jumping at the opportunity to provide luxurious residential properties for these corporate powerhouses and discerning expatriates, all housed within a prestigious address. There are many reasons as to what makes the address of KL an enviable and much sought-after one.

Designer lifestyles
The allure of a building’s refined outer facade cannot be denied; the sleek streamlined curves and light bouncing off the glassy walls are enough to elicit love at first sight.

Tropicana Corp Bhd’s The Residences sets out to nurture that feeling by showcasing how glamorous nature can be. Inspired by the distinctiveness of haute couture and the bold colours of the heliconia plant, the result is an exterior and public space that makes an impressive statement of exclusivity. “With our moderately sized units priced reasonably, and a chic design appealing to the fashion-conscious, this is a place to stand out and be seen,” said Tropicana Corp Bhd’s head of sales and marketing Ung Lay Ting.

The world’s second tallest tower, KL118, adds to the overall prestige of living at Opus.

The KL skyline is further redefined by the futuristic vertical icon that is KSK Land’s 8 Conlay, a trio of compellingly charismatic towers. “Our collaboration with world-renowned partners to set a new benchmark for branded residences encompasses three main elements – liveable architecture, interior designs and personalised services,” said KSK Land managing director Joanne Kua. A landmark luxurious development is thus born: imposing, contemporary and artfully blending aesthetic beauty with positive capital yield, fit for those who seek a higher quality lifestyle.

Then there is Opus, which brings a whole new level to the love for city-living. From the reception of the designer lobby to the sophisticated car park, every international need and want is carefully tailored to, as intercontinental migration is now more common. “Our interiors have adopted some of the more universal and up-to-date design concepts as we understand how important it is to meet the global standards of discerning residents,” said Star Effort Sdn Bhd director Dave Hoong.

Excellent connectivity
Property gurus have only one mantra, and that is “Location”. It’s widely known that increasingly, more people are choosing to live in urban areas. People generally seek out properties located in high return and low risk areas, preferably within close proximity to amenities and public transportation.

Experiencing the city’s choicest retail outlets and main artery is made possible when living at 8 Conlay, which is strategically located in the heart of KL’s Golden Triangle. There is Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Bukit Bintang for instant access, in addition to the convenience of public transportation. The close proximity of the Raja Chulan monorail station and the proposed MRT station at Jalan Conlay all come together to provide a peace of mind.

The glittering towers of 8 Conlay soar like iconic beacons, and offers its residents a one-of-a-kind branded mixed development with luxurious fully-furnished units.

Having the world’s second tallest building as a neighbour and some of the best connectivity to transport systems is a privilege that not many can boast of. At Opus, residents are located in close proximity to the KL118 tower, which will have a MRT station within. There are even major roads nearby such as Jalan Syed Putra and Jalan Mahameru, and the monorail stops right at the doorstep, which further connects to both KLIA and KLIA2 via KL Sentral.

Considerable ease of access is enjoyed at The Residences with it being sited along the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan Yap Kuan Seng. There are three major highways that connect to/from the city centre, all of which are a short drive away from the development – Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), Maju Expressway (MEX) and SMART Expressway. Residents will also still be able to walk to the KLCC LRT station and the Bukit Nanas monorail station.

Happiness and health
By achieving the maximum potential of the plot of land a development sits on, residents will not only be blessed with a myriad of excellent facilities, but be able to appreciate nature’s magnificence at one’s threshold.

Happiness can be found when there is a perfect balance struck between living space, recreational and common activity areas, without compromising on space planning. At Opus, the carefully thought-out facilities area brings direct advantages to the residents, with a galaxy swimming pool, floating yoga deck and rooftop fully fitted kitchen for al fresco dining, to name a few. No detail is spared when it comes to giving the best experience. From the columns, beams and hardscapes, to colours, details and softscapes, it is all about a sustainable lifestyle.

Views of the sparkling city is always a drawing factor, so The Residences has a maximised plot ratio that allows for a 360-degree view. Residents will be able to immerse themselves in some of the facilities available, namely the tranquil saltwater sky pool, forest lounge, misty walk, aquarobics zone and gourmet loft. A new inspiration emerges from this development, where fashion is merged with artistic landscaping, creating a verdant retreat at the very top of the building.

A soothing green haven that allows residents the opportunity to escape and unwind is always a welcoming respite. 8 Conlay’s 44th floor features a unique elevated jogging track encircling a tropical forest garden, a perfect replica of Malaysia’s hilly and lush terrain that residents can enjoy within the comforts of home. Partnering with Kempinski Hotels, Europe’s oldest hotel management company, 8 Conlay is set to bring impeccable personalised services to its residents, allowing them to indulge in true five-star luxury. - By The Star
