Press Release: Embracing The Urban Lifestyle
Setia Awan Group Central Region’s Astrum Ampang is all set to be the brightest star in Kuala Lumpur’s property market. Located along bustling Jalan Ampang and Jalan Jelatek areas, the 6.8-acre mixed development will soon shine with major real estate attractions such as location, accessibility, convenience, affordability and urban living. Combined with an appealing design and a never-seen-before concept in Malaysia, Astrum Ampang will transform the landscape of city living in Malaysia’s capital city as we know it.
Seeing excellent response for the Brezza One Residency, Setia Awan is now launching its latest offering, Astrum Ampang, a mixed property development. Creating history as the first ever development with a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and SOHO Transit concept in the country, Astrum Ampang has a long list of facilities and amenities that will add on to the magnetism for young working professionals to live, work and unwind in the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur.
Located only 4km away from the Petronas Twin Towers, the well-developed neighbourhood is close to popular city landmarks in the vicinity. These include Gleneagles Medical Centre, Great Eastern Mall, and the Ministry of Defence, along with an array of businesses, embassies as well as private and public schools.
Just a brief 150 meters walking distance to the Jelatek LRT Station which is just 4 train stations away from KLCC, Astrum Ampang’s TOD concept stands out from other projects in the city. Following modern and ultra-convenient connectivity in public transport such as Stockholm, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore, the star development was planned and designed to promote public transport ridership, with the aim of creating sustainable growth in the city. Astrum (meaning star in Latin) Ampang, will also be directly linked to the Jelatek LRT station via a covered pedestrian bridge.
Besides the TOD concept, Astrum Ampang’s modern inspiration embraces the “City Within City” concept, creating avenues for residents to live their lives abundantly at the development – all possible with the Setia Awan Group’s Hotel, Office, Park, Shopping, Connectivity and Apartment (HOPSCA) blueprint.
“Astrum Ampang’s uniqueness lies in it encapsulating the first ever SOHO Transit and TOD concept in Kuala Lumpur. It also caters to the rising demand of home ownership by the young, working population in the thriving and exciting Kuala Lumpur. With the SOHO Transit governed by the Housing Development Act and full support from the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT) and Selangor Housing and Property Board (LPHS), the development provides KL-ites the best of city living,” said James Bruyns, Chief Operating Officer, Setia Awan Group Central Region.
With a gross development value (GDV) of RM1.68 billion, the landmark collaboration will make property dreams of many young independent professionals come true. While having the opportunity to own a contemporary home in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, they are also able to enjoy the many benefits of modern facilities and amenities – all while being close to public transportation.
Designed with practicality and suited to the needs of 30-somethings with the desire to live in an urban setting, Astrum Ampang’s SOHO Transit has a built up area of 280sq.ft, SOHO Suites are 450 sq.ft and the Mampu Milik Service Apartments comprising of 450sq ft & 550 sq ft respectively.
Potential homeowners can look forward to Setia Awan Group Central Region launching its first phase, comprising of SOHO Transit (1360 units) and Rumah Mampu Milik (712 units) for first-time homebuyers from the starting price of RM230,000 to RM270,000. These affordable price points give young working adults the opportunity to redirect their rental overheads towards owning a property with 62 Star facilities and amenities for a comfortable and convenient lifestyle.
Facilities and amenities available for residents include a children’s indoor playground, a multi-purpose hall and Smart Gym to a community centre/co-working space, café, outdoor theatre and infinity pool. Astrum Ampang is also home to a sunken Jacuzzi, outdoor tennis court and reflexology room, among many others. Together with the 27 commercial units catering to residents of the development and other residents in the urban neighbourhood, these elements are designed to give residents a richer, more exciting urban lifestyle.
“While we have only recently branched out to offer our expertise in the big city, our aim has always been the same, which is to build affordable yet high quality homes for all Malaysians. Over the past few years, young working adults continue to constitute a huge percentage of the total working population in Malaysia, but many of them find it challenging to rent, let alone own a home in the city center due to high living costs. Hence, Setia Awan hopes to play a bigger role to enhance the lifestyle of the underserved communities in this market,” said Ng Teck Hua, Executive Director, Setia Awan Group Central Region.
With a completion target in 2026, the group aspires for Astrum Ampang to be the preferred mixed development in the area and aims for the upcoming project to be recognized as one of Malaysia’s most successful mixed-development projects in the near future.
Astrum Ampang is slated to be yet another milestone in Setia Awan’s stellar property portfolio following the successful launch of their first Klang Valley project, Brezza Hill in Ampang. Their steadily growing list of active developments include properties in Melaka, Negeri Sembilan and Perak. The Group is also the current leading property developers in Perak, particularly in Sitiawan and Seri Manjung.
The Astrum Ampang’s sales gallery and show units in Phileo Damansara 1 are now open for viewing. You can make an appointment by contacting 018-371 2888.
