No better place to purchase your dream real estate at bargain prices!
KLCC offers a treasure trove of properties, although they are usually over-priced at times. However, most city folk believe that KLCC is still excessively congested and generally unconducive for family living, but expatriates might have a differing perception or alternate viewpoint on this fact. Whatever the disparity in opinion or commentary, it is unanimously agreed or concurred that KLCC presents some of the best real estate and premium property anywhere in Malaysia, let alone in Greater Klang Valley. While many new upcoming luxury & branded projects are mushrooming elsewhere, KLCC continues to maintain its property tradition by shattering price records year after year. Nevertheless, there are still exists quite a number of condos with relatively affordable pricing. With plots of prime land and premium real estate situated at the core of the capital, KLCC exudes a majestic presence for niche and premium properties within metropolitan Kuala Lumpur, with the iconic Petronas Twin Towers as its backdrop. The exorbitant price of housing within KLCC reflects the prestige of luxury living in the heart of the city.
‘The Binjai on The Park’ (The Binjai) is the only residential component within the renowned KLCC development overlooking the KLCC Park. It is located adjacent to other KLCC residences in the vicinity with iconic landmarks such as Petronas Twin Towers and Suria KLCC shopping mall in the horizon. The Binjai, Marc Residence, Vipod Residence and The Pearl KLCC are reputably among the top ten non-landed luxury residences based on average price per sq. ft. since 2014. Hampshire Park is another luxury residential property within KLCC, located on Persiaran Hampshire and developed by Tan & Tan Developments. When it was first launched in 2007, its offer price was a meagre RM600 psf which was a real bargain. Over the years, many high-end residential projects have been rather successful and have proven quite a hit with homebuyers. The Binjai is especially popular with expatriates and travelers alike during the annual holidays or summer vacation at KLCC – perhaps attributed to its strategic location, excellent hospitality and top-notch services.
There are also luxury condominiums like Suria Stonor (developed by Glomac Regal), which is located less than 1.7 km away from the Twin Towers, and is priced between RM800 – 1,000 psf. You could also get a spacious 3,310 sq. ft. condo unit for RM3 million which is a pretty good deal. If you are looking for a reasonably affordable luxury condo, look no further than Hampshire Park where you could secure a roomy 2,636 sq. ft. unit for just RM2 million. And if you are searching for a twin-bedroom unit below RM1 million, you can find them a little further away from the Twin Towers. Amidst all the hype down south, KLCC still remains one of the most expensive and exclusive residential addresses locally.
During the third quarter of 2014, the property price of non-landed properties skyrocketed, registering in excess of RM1k psf with average price per unit being RM1.7 million. Approximately a quarter of all properties transacted were for units priced above two million ringgit. One of the most expensive residential addresses belongs to The Binjai with an average transaction price of RM5 million! Property prices within KLCC typically hover around RM2K per square foot. The Pearl, The Troika and Binjai Residency are some other examples of luxury residences featured.
