Property developer Tropicana Corporation Bhd has unveiled The Residences, a posh, fully-furnished serviced apartment tower right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle over the weekend.
Set for completion in 2017, it will be built on 0.52ha of freehold land at the original Millionaires’ Row with gross development value estimated at RM800mil.
The Residences offers four types of swanky layouts with built-up area ranging from 710 sq ft to 2,973 sq ft with 353 units of residences on offer from the 25th to the 53rd floor. The luxury apartment, just two minutes’ walk to Suria KLCC, will sit atop a hotel – the upscale W Hotel. Managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, the hotel offers 150 rooms and will occupy the 8th to 23rd floor.
According to Tropicana, the Residences which is designed by the celebrated architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), is expected to join the ranks of other instantly recognisable SOM projects like Dubai’s Burj Khalifa and New York’s One World Trade Centre, and is set to become an iconic landmark in Kuala Lumpur.
The developer, which launched the project simultaneously over the weekend across six countries – Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, China (ChengDu and Shanghai), Indonesia and Hong Kong, said The Residences offered prospective buyers the opportunity to own a piece of luxury real estate on the last few parcels of premium freehold lands in the Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
During the main launch at Marini’s on 57, the rooftop bar located close to the Petronas Twin Towers, Ung Lay Ting, head of marketing and sales department, said: “The Residences prides itself as the only swanky-arty luxury property located in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle. Clients will be treated to every conceivable luxury and amenity, including concierge and housekeeping services, and an innovative home-care programme – ideal for jet-setters or those constantly on the move”.
The host of modern facilities that will be made available include a saltwater infinity pool, a forest-themed lounge, a multi-purpose area on the roof known as the Gourmet Loft and a first-of-its-kind aqua gym. The rooftop facility floor will offer the perfect place to chill with an unobstructed view of the cityscape.
A butler service will help residents with such things as transport, laundry and bookings for flights, restaurants and even spa treatments.
Management of The Residences will be handled by Tropicana, which says it will continue to embrace sustainable development in this project. The tower is designated as a green building and will boast resource- and energy-efficient features in its daily operations, including the powering of lifts and other utilities.
