Compact, contemporary and practical, the development plan broaches the untapped niche market of compact dual-key concept that caters to those who frequent KL city on a business trip and those who are operating either a start-up or working from home.
Hitting the Right Notes
The freehold Mixed Commercial Retail and Residential sits on 1.389 acres of land on the prestigious address of Jalan Dewan Sultan Sulaiman, in the same stretch of street as Shangri-La Hotel where amenities in the surrounding area is abundant. By building The Luxe on a locational sweet spot, it holds the promise of flexibility, accessibility, and feasibility that only city living could offer. With Quill City Mall sitting right next door, residents will have easy access to a shopping, dining and entertainment experience. For those without a mean of transportation, there is a monorail station located right in front of the mall that offers seamless connection to Lot 10 and Suria KLCC, Bintang Walk, KL Sentral, Kuala Lumpur International Airport and many other major locations in KL.
“With such excellent macro location, the product offered there has to be right. Typically, the dual-key products in the current market are over 1000 sq ft. What was missing was a more affordable compact version of that product and since we already have the skillset to develop a compact dual-key. It made sense to take a little bit of risk to fill that untapped niche,” shares Herman Chang, Macly Group’s managing director.
Distinctively different from The Colony, The Luxe comprises lesser units than its denser sister and yet it is built taller to give it a sense of prestige. With a total of 300 units spread across 43 storeys, it offers three types of unit: Duplex, Simplex and Penthouse. These units offer sizes that range from 675 sq ft to 1,155 sq ft, with a choice between 1 bedroom+1 living room and 3 bedroom+ 1 Living room to suit your business or personal needs.
To further elevate its reputation as a luxury development, high-quality furnishing on floor furniture on porcelain tiles are used throughout the development and the units are given a facelift as well as furnished with upgraded quality appliances in the kitchen, pantry and bathroom. Some of these units come with a built-in wardrobe and a pantry.
There is a comprehensive range of facilities available spread over two floors at the top of Tower A (The Club Floor), which helps keep the density of tower B (The Luxe) lower without compromising its efficiency. To keep the building’s efficiency at an optimum, most recreational facilities are housed at the top of The Colony which can be easily accessed by residents of The Luxe.
As The Luxe caters predominantly to business people, the club floor provides the perfect settings for business dealings and for client entertainment purposes. The business lounge offers a sweeping view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline and the majestic Petronas Twin Towers. If you need a little nudge to seal the deal, treat your guests to a scrumptious dinner at the indoor dining area or throw a more laid-back barbeque party. Other recreational facilities such as resident’s lounge, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, a children’s playground and a gym are also available for the resident’s enjoyment.
Below it is a three-level retail space consisting of 31 commercial units with a GDV of 60 million. “It is important that the shops below complement the development and cater to what the residents want. Most of these shops will be visible from the outside, therefore, they don’t have to solely depend on the tenants for business,” says Teo Hong Lim, Executive Chairman of RoxyPacific Holdings Limited.
There will be a total of 997 parking bays available out of which, 723 are reserved for the residence while the other 30 lots will be allocated for visitors; a total of 68 parking bays are reserved for female drivers while the other 20 will be specially reserved for the handicapped. To accommodate the retail businesses below, a total of 123 lots will be allocated for shoppers at the basements while each retail outlet will be given two season parking passes. With expected completion in the 3rd quarter of 2020, Macly Equity is confident in The Luxe’s ability capture the heart of local buyers.
