Young professionals and first-time buyers who desire a lavish property and exciting lifestyle options may want to take a look at Liberty Arc, the first phase of the 87-acre metropolitan Ampang Ukay development.
The latter is envisioned to be the “Little Hong Kong of KL” offering retail conveniences, quality amenities and a strong neighbourhood character amidst greenery and multiple high-rise buildings.
This massive undertaking aims to
bring superior quality residential and commercial offerings to the vicinity with an estimated gross development value of over RM5 billion.
Liberty Arc @ Ampang Ukay by EcoFirst Hartz Sdn Bhd is a freehold designer serviced suites development located on Jalan Hulu Kelang, right by the side of the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) between immediate neighbours Ukay Heights and Stella Maris Primary School.
Nestled on 6.5 acres, it comprises three residential cum small office-home office towers of 35 storeys housing a total of 1,632 units. There are also 32 for-lease retail units.
This high density project is currently offering units with built -ups of 450sq ft and come in five layouts with or without a balcony.
The bedroom and living room will be furnished by an award-winning interior designer to meet the standards of what a designer suite should be. The unit will also come with a furnished kitchen.
The developer is giving buyers a choice of Korean wallpapers for the units’ wall-to-wall and ceiling-to-floor coverage.
All this is available within the affordable bracket of RM315,000 onwards. Besides savvy investors, the property also targets young professionals working in the city and who would want a ready-to-move-in unit with minimum hassle.
The thought of buying a shoebox unit for RM750psf may sound absurd to many but the point here is to also consider external factors that will boost its value.
The architect of the Liberty Arc development is the much acclaimed Veritas Design Group.
It’s also packed with facilities that include a 50m Olympic-sized swimming pool, wading pool, Jacuzzi, BBQ and picnic area, a 5,000sq ft fully-featured gymnasium and squash courts.
Adding to this is a lush, breathtaking landscape that is designed by an award-winning landscape architect to give residents a sense of wellbeing besides enhancing the development’s exterior.
Among the security features are three-tier security with CCTV at the perimeter fencing and other strategic locations as well as card access. These should give residents especially the singles peace of mind.
The monthly maintenance fee is an indicative RM120 for each unit which comes with a parking bay.
The development’s location is a major plus point as it’s close to KL city centre with convenient ingress and egress routes from MRR2 and accessibility to the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway and Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway. But traffic congestion is one drawback, being located so near to heavily used roads.
Nevertheless, the city centre offers some of the best retail, F&B and entertainment facilities around that should meet the residents’ lifestyle needs and wants.
According to the developer, Liberty Arc’s take-up rate has been good since its soft launch earlier this month.
The third tower will open for sale at the official launch planned for the first quarter of 2017. Liberty Arc is slated for completion in 2019.
