IF you are looking for a nice apartment where you can walk over to the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre and the Sunway Lagoon Resort, well, here’s your chance to buy a unit in the newly launched SuriaMas @ Bandar Sunway. 

The developer, Skillcet Holdings Sdn Bhd has sold more than 50% of the 255 units in the first block called Sun Villa (phase 1) within five days of launch recently. 

Many people turned up at the Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel to view models of the three-block apartment.  

Subsequent launches were held at the developer’s sales office at Mentari Plaza, opposite the Sunway Pyramid. 

The 6.3-acre leasehold project will have 675 units. The other two blocks under phase 2 and 3 will have 240 and 180 units respectively. There are two, four-room types: 1,245 sq ft and 1,300 sq ft.  

The prices are from RM186,800 to RM249,800. The first block will have 17 units per floor with three lifts serving each floor. 

Skillcet Holdings executive director Jason Ong told StarBiz that the Sun Villa had only seven units with terraces and they had all been snapped up.  

These units have a spacious terrace of 267 sq ft to 364 sq ft where one can have a koi pond or a Japanese/Balinese mini garden.

“One can relax in this terrace after a hard day’s work. It is hard to find a condominium with a garden for this type of price,” he said, adding that there were purchasers who were presently staying in Bandar Sunway and Kelana Jaya. 

He said the price was only RM150 to RM170 per sq ft as compared to about RM230 psf in a condominium project nearby. 

“That project faces a lake. We also have a view of that lake although we are slightly further away.  

“There is also a small lake with a garden at the Ridzuan Condominium that is next to our project. It also overlooks the KGNS golf course,” he said. 

He said many people were looking for apartments in the area, as there were many amenities and facilities there. 

Many students studying at the nearby One Academy, Sunway College, Zafa College and Taylor’s College are renting houses and apartments in Bandar Sunway as the shopping centre is so near and there are lots of hawkers’ stalls as well as modern F&B outlets. 

Accessibility is good as there is the New Pantai Expressway outside the project and one can also drive to the Damansara-Puchong Highway, KL-Shah Alam Expressway, Federal Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway and the Elite Highway to the KL International Airport.  

The Chee Wen and Lick Hung Chinese primary schools are also few minutes’ drive away. 

Ong said the apartment, with a gross development value of RM150 mil, was so designed that each block overlooked a 1.8-acre central park where the facilities such as cafetaria, gym, sauna, swimming pool, wading pool, jacuzzi, tennis court, multi-purposed hall with indoor badminton court and shops are located. 

“The design of the blocks allows for good cross ventilation and excellent bird’s eye view of the surroundings,” he said, adding that residents were assured of good security with card access at the main entrance and CCTV cameras. 

He said Skillcet Holdings would continue to look for land to develop but it “must be of A1 location”. 

The project is managed by HR United Group whose projects include Sri Ampang Mas at Taman Dagang Ampang, Casa Ria apartments in Bandar Country Homes, Rawang, and Bukit Delima in Seremban.  

Its future projects are at Section 13, Shah Alam, Puchong and Air Panas Setapak.
