Looking at the current trend, I believe that the current demand is roaring for futuristic and self-contained urban city. Indeed, with escalating fuel price and bad public transportation planning, people should work and live within the same area.
You should better watch out for these 5 urban integrated commercial-cum-residential developments that might change the way you live, work and play.
1. Empire City
Located adjacent to established townships of TTDI, Damansara Perdana, Mutiara Damansara and Bandar Utama, Empire City is set to become the next big hit along Damansara-Puchong Highway. Sited over 23 acres of leasehold land, Empire City shall become a self-contained township with service apartment, studio office suites, SoHo, corporate office and retail outlet.
For ones who still are lacking of faith on the developer, perhaps you should take a look at all their past developments, and then you will know what I mean. They have consistently deliver great products ever since they started walking – and they have never look back since then.
2. KL Eco City
This long-awaited development has finally launched recently. I have registered as buyer for months (and keen on it for years), and was only invited to the official launch last month.
KL Eco City is a project by the renowned SP Setia (and DBKL as the land owner). The development will comprise 3 residential towers, 3 corporate office towers. 1 serviced apartment tower, 1 retail podium, 3 clusters of boutique offices and 1 strata office tower.
How am I sure that this is going to be successful? Well, it is situated in between Bangsar, Mid Valley City and KL Sentral. Period.
3. Damansara Avenue
Just a stone’s throw away from Empire City, this is another fascinating mixed development to watch out for. Spans over 48 acres of freehold land, Damansara Avenue shall comprise private gardens (surrounding the development), condominiums, corporate office towers, lifestyle mall and SoHo.
Developed by TA Global, Damansara Avenue’s price range starts from RM400 psf, which is the cheapest compares to the others in this list.
4. Icon City
Spreads over a 19.6 acres leasehold land, Icon City features futuristic design over the entire development. The facade is just like a 3D puzzle with loads of missing pieces. Yup, I also believe that Icon Residence design is better even though both designs are really similar.
Icon City is strategically located at the interchange of Damansara-Puchong Highway and Federal Highway. Just like the others, Icon City features shop-offices, a gourmet street, SoVO (small-office versatile-office), service apartments, a retail mall, a hotel and office towers.
5. Bangsar South
Even though Bangsar South has already half completed, I still think that this urban development is worth mentioning in this article.
Bangsar South comprises Grade A offices retail outlets, resort-style condominiums and serviced suites. Conveniently located adjacent to Federal Highway, this urban enclave is also connected via Sprint Highway and New Pantai Expressway.
Yes, I have ranked them according to my preference. How about you?
