KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Properties is expected to officially launch its latest project, Icon Residence Mont'Kiara, within two to three months, said Mah Sing Properties chief operations officer Teh Heng Chong (pictured above) on Wednesday, July 14.
Before the launch, however, Mah Sing would hold a preview for interested buyers of Icon Residence at the Sime Darby Convention Centre from Friday, July 16 to Sunday, July 18.
"The preview is only for registered applicants for the time being," Teh said.
The project currently has 6,000 registered applicants, of whom about 20% to 30% are foreigners.
The development's modular design is inspired by Santorini in Greece, while the landscape and water features are inspired by the country's Mediterranean feel.
"We are creating a collectors' item for those who like fine things," Teh said on the project's niche market. "The buyer of this development is sophisticated and well-travelled."
Icon Residence Mont' Kiara sits on 2.57 acres of freehold land, and has a gross development value (GDV) of RM298 million.
It has three towers - namely Icon 1, 2 and 3 -- which are 26-, 28- and 36-storeys high respectively, with each floor housing two to six units. All are corner units with views of either Kuala Lumpur or Mont'Kiara.
In total there are 260 units, of which 78 units are in Icon 1; 73 units in Icon 2; and 109 units in Icon 3. The unit sizes range from 875 sq ft to 2,697 sq ft, with a starting price of RM956,800. On average, the psf price is between RM1,100 and RM1,200. Fifty units in Icon 3 come with private lift lobbies.
Among the units to be sold are six duplex penthouses that range from 4,200 sq ft to 4,436 sq ft, and are priced from RM5.35 million. These units come with private swimming pools.
All units come with kitchen cabinets, wardrobes, air-conditioners, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine-cum-dryer, stove and hood.
The recreational area is on the seventh floor and the development also has roof-top gardens atop each tower. The development has 648 carpark bays.
Among the green design features include rain-water harvesting, energy-saving lights, low VOC paints and automated waste disposal system, in which all waste is collected to a central area for pick up and disposal.
"I believe this is the first development in Mont'Kiara with such a disposal system," said Teh.
In previous artist impressions, the Icon Residence Mont'Kiara featured a wide array of water features and gardens, but they have now been scaled down. "This has been toned down for easy maintenance," Teh said.
Construction is due to start in 4Q2010 and will be completed in three years' time.
