KUALA LUMPUR: Mah Sing Group's (Mah Sing) M Vertica two-way ingress and egress ramp on Jalan Cheras is completed and scheduled to open in April 2023.
The ramp, which costs an estimated RM23mil, will enable residents to access their car parks directly on levels 3, 3A and 5, significantly dispersing traffic within the carpark and reducing travel time for residents to get to their carpark.
The event was officiated by Cheras Parliamentary member Tan Kok Wai together with Mah Sing’s founder and group managing director Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum, group chief executive officer Datuk Ho Hon Sang, Property Subsidiaries chief executive officer Yeoh Chee Beng, group strategy and operations director Lionel Leong, the senior management team as well as special officers to Bandar Tun Razak Parliamentary Member Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Kuek Zhe Han and Roslan Mahmood.
Leong said, “I am very pleased that we are able to fulfil our promise for the benefit of the residents and the community with the completion of this dedicated ramp.
“When we first envisioned how we wanted to build M Vertica, we were certain that a ramp would be required.
“As one of Mah Sing's major M Series developments based on an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM2.2bil, we wanted to add value not only to our customers' purchases, but also to the quality of life in the surrounding communities.
“Additionally, M Vertica’s above average 5.3% rental yield makes it the perfect choice for homebuyers looking to invest or buy-to-stay to enjoy the broad exclusive facilities offered.
“In light of this, we will continue to uphold our tagline of ‘Reinvent Spaces, Enhance Life for All Malaysians’.”
Mah Sing’s objective for building the ramp was to improve M Vertica residents' lifestyle, as well as to ease traffic flow on Jalan Cheras, Jalan Besraya, Jalan Ikan Ayu and Jalan Ikan Emas.
The construction of the ramp began in January 2022.
On top of this, M Vertica’s carpark is designed with wider access ramps (approximately 4m width) at all carpark levels, all fitting in the design philosophy of providing ample space.
Ho said, “Launched in 2018, the 4.6-hectare (11.25-acre) M Vertica in Cheras is one of Mah Sing’s largest M Series affordable high-rise residential developments.”
Comprising a total of five towers, Towers A and B of this development were completed and 90% handed over to the purchasers.
The remaining Towers C, D and E are targeted for vacant possession in April 2023, Towers A, B and C are fully sold, Tower E is now open for sale.
The overall take-up for this development has reached 90%.
High Qlassic score
M Vertica obtained above 80% score for the Quality Assessment System in Construction (Qlassic) for the Phase 2 of construction.
The development’s Tower C received an 82% score while Tower D, E and Podium B scored 83%.
Qlassic was introduced by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) as an independent assessment tool to ensure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building construction work based on the Construction Industry Standard (CIS: 7:2021).
Tan said, “I applaud Mah Sing for obtaining a high QLASSIC score for M Vertica’s Phase 2 of construction.
“It truly reflects Mah Sing’s dedication to providing the best products to the market and attention to details on workmanship from design to construction phases aimed at delivering the best product to the market.
“It showcases the attention to details in the planning and construction processes to deliver the best outcome for the finished goods which will greatly benefit home buyers.”
