Bringing Together Work, Home & Leisure
Wouldnt it be great if you didnt have to spend a large part of your daily life sitting in traffic jams getting from one place to another? Wouldnt it be terrific if you could leisurely stroll from your home to all the different places that youre likely to visit in a typical week? Like for eating out, banking, paying utility bills, chatting with friends over coffee in a cosy corner, and shopping? If your answer is Yes! that is exactly what 162 Residency in Selayang has in mind for its residents.
The fast expanding town of Selayang is part of the Northern KL zone. Against the backdrop of the nearby Forest Reserve of Malaysia (FRIM), Selayang has several shopping complexes and hypermarkets, Selayang Hospital, UiTM Campus, colleges and schools. Add a whole slew of public services and agencies that include the Pejabat Tanah dan Daerah, Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah, Majlis Perbandaran Selayang, Syabas, JKR, and the Mahkamah, and you have an established township that has all the amenities that its residents need.
To be built smack in the centre of this hub of convenience is 162 Residency, Selayang, a fashionable, mixed commercial and residential development located on 5.38 acres of prime land. The development will comprise a central 7-storey building flanked by two 3-storey blocks which together offer a total of 454 units of condo-style apartments and 66 units of retail shops.
With apartment suite sizes that range from 810 sq ft to 1,175 sq ft, and 15 distinct layout designs, there certainly is a lot of choice for home buyers. Each unit has at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Prices for the residential units start from as low as RM107,100.
162 Residency, Selayang will be developed by a member of the MCT Group of Companies, a forward-looking and innovative properties group with an expanding stable of successful developments to its name, including the prestigious USJ 1 Avenue condominiums.
Under One Roof
Adopting a novel concept in apartment living, 162 Residency is designed for a young lifestyle that appreciates the aesthetics of a modern facade, condo-style, and the happy convenience of living, working, dining and shopping, all handily under one roof.
162 Residency, Selayang, is a development with a difference, said Mr KC Soo, General Manager of MCT 1999. We wanted to create a stylish, self-contained and very secure community with condo-style apartment suites that home purchasers cant wait to move in to, without having to pay an exorbitant price for that luxury.
This area has at least 15 public services and agencies and will also attract a lot of students because the UiTM Campus is situated just behind us and Kolej Komuniti Selayang is in the vicinity, he added. So purchasers of our apartment suites will be making a smart investment. Our apartment suites are ideal for students and mid-sized families since the units are functionally designed, affordably priced and as you can see, also give great value for money.
Part of that value lies in being able to avoid the stress of a daily commute to work for some business owners and their staff. That highly convenient option is what 162 Selayang offers. About 50% of shop units on the Ground Floors are already being snapped up by trendy businesses that are in tune with the tastes of the urban lifestyle and the day-to-day needs of the residents: bistros, sidewalk café, restaurants, boutique retail outlets, health spa, pub and lounge. Residents wont have to go far to gratify sudden cravings like a hankering for a cappuccino, a hot dog, or just for a spot of window-shopping, all of which can easily be satisfied by simply taking the lift to the Ground Floor.
In short, 162 Residency is one-stop convenience for the cool crowd. Travelling between the home, work, and entertainment, is literally a matter of steps.
That a lot of thought has been invested in the planning is evident in the practical features that characterise the development. For a start, the entire area is raised above street level so that even the First Floor apartment suites can enjoy the view from a whopping height of more than 30 feet above the ground.
All three apartment blocks have two lifts each that serve the top floor to the basement carpark. One of the two lifts is a ¡°stretcher lift¡± of the type installed in hospitals, so that ferrying bigger pieces of furniture is made easier. Comfortably wide 6-foot corridors service the 3-storey apartment blocks while the central building has the benefit of even more generous ten-foot corridors.
A main feature of 162 Residency is its covered 2-storey carpark, one storey being located at ground level and the other just below it in a well-lit basement. Residents will be glad for this forethought as they would not have to fumble with umbrellas when they enter or alight from their cars on rainy days. With over 1,400 bays,
