SET to be among the tallest landmarks in Bukit Jalil, Twin Arkz, a serviced apartment project by Exsimas Development Sdn Bhd is attracting property buyers like bees to honey.
The project was soft-launched last September, but Michael Yam, Exsimas head of property, noted that some 80% of the units have already been sold to date.
Twin Arkz comprises two blocks of 34-storey towers with 363 units of serviced apartments and SOHO. The project is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2016.
According to Yam, one of the drawing factors of Twin Arkz is that it is a freehold property located in the heart of the development taking place in Bukit Jalil.
“Bukit Jalil will be another integrated city hub. It is highly accessible with infrastructure planned for the area and there are three malls in the pipeline for Bukit Jalil. We are positive on the prospects for Twin Arkz as well as Bukit Jalil,” Yam said.
The project sits on a 1.8-acre site situated about 1.5km from the planned Bukit Jalil LRT station. It is also accessible via the KESAS Highway, Maju Expressway, Middle Ring Road 2 and Kuala Lumpur-Seremban Highway.
Yam noted that the three major developers with projects in Bukit Jalil are WCT Berhad, Berjaya Group and Ho Hup Construction Company Bhd.
He said Twin Arkz will be enjoying a fantastic view of Berjaya Group’s planned Bukit Jalil golf course.
Twin Arkz features various designs for different home owners, namely two bedrooms + a study (1,025 sq ft), three bedrooms + one utility (1,170 sq ft and 1,254 sq ft), three bedrooms (1,254 sq ft), three bedrooms + one study + one utility (1,521 sq ft), one bedroom + one study (721 sq ft), two bedrooms (920 sq ft), two bedrooms + one suite + one utility (1,301 sq ft) and two bedrooms + one suite + one utility (1,339 sq ft)
The units are priced at RM550,000 onwards.
Some of the amenities available at Twin Arkz include a 25m swimming pool, sky pool, sky gym, a communal eco-friendly kitchen that can be used for functions as well as a sports lounge.
The serviced apartments are also semi-furnished with built-in wardrobes, kitchen and toilet cabinets and air-conditioning to minimise renovation cost for houseowners.
“We want to sustain rental yield for our property so that customers can also benefit from it. So, we are providing as much furnishing as possible to make it easier for them to rent out the property as well,” Yam said.
Additionally, Twin Arkz has received its provisional Green Building Index (GBI) certification.
While the cost of developing a green building may be higher than a normal development, Yam said Exsimas is not charging property buyers the full cost of a GBI-quality property.
“It is a trend. People are talking about going green and they are aware of the GBI standard. We want to be a green developer and we hope to be an example to other developers.”
Exsimas is also on the lookout for more land bank for future developments. Currently, the developer has 12 acres under its belt.
Some of its previous developments include the Nouvelle Industrial Park projects in Kota Damansara and Bukit Rimau, Shah Alam, which features three-storey semi-detached factory units and The Treez residential community project in Bukit Jalil, as well as The Leafz serviced apartments in Sungai Besi.
“We are looking at opportunities in Iskandar and Penang. Iskandar is a good market because it enjoys a lot of investment from Singapore. But we are definitely looking at more land bank in the Klang Valley,” Yam added.
