Kuala Lumpur, 9 July 2005
Understanding that many discerning Singaporeans are looking to the KL property market either for investment or as a second home, YTL Land & Development Berhad recently held a first-in-Singapore roadshow to introduce The Maple at Sentul West. The roadshow held over two days from July 9 – 10, 2005, will not only provide Singaporeans with an opportunity to learn about one of KL’s most sought-after homes but also how it would translate into a sound investment in Malaysia.
Within the first two hours of the roadshow, the event had already attracted a steady stream of curious Singaporeans – all interested to find out about this unique freehold development strategically located within the KL city centre that yet provides residents and their families with exclusive access to a 35-acre private gated park.
"Based on the numerous inquiries received from our print ads and direct mailers, we anticipate many more to visit us over the next two days," said Edward Lee, Assistant General Manager, YTL Land & Development Berhad. "Just imagine, your own 35-acre private gated park with access provided only to the residents, world-class amenities at their finger tips and most importantly, connected to three highways and two modern train stations – according them accessibility to KLCC within 10 minutes, KLIA in 45 minutes and to the rest of KL immediately!"
Edward further added, "The introduction of the 'Malaysia: My Second Home' programme has certainly helped made the country a choice destination for property investments among foreigners, as it allows successful applicants to stay in Malaysia for extended periods of time on a social visit pass with a 5-year multiple-entry visa.
"Coupled with the fact that Malaysia has a more affordable foreign exchange rate backed by a stable political and economic environment and abundant educational opportunities, more and more foreigners are choosing Malaysia for property investments."
A similar exercise was carried out in KL, where exclusive guests were invited to view The Maple’s new Type B showunit. And just for this weekend exercise in Singapore and KL, the first 10 buyers were given a 5% early bird discount. In addition, to provide The Maple buyers with a taste of this quality lifestyle offered by YTL, buyers were given a 3-day, 2-night stay at either Pangkor Laut Resort or Tanjong Jara Resort.
About The Maple
Competitively priced from RM530,000, all 318 units of The Maple come with three bedrooms and an additional maid’s room, in three different built-up sizes from 1,535 sq ft to 1,707 sq ft. With only six units on each floor of the two 30-storey towers of The Maple, every home is a corner unit ensuring generous spaces with privacy. Residents also have the convenience of two covered parking bays with strata title that come guaranteed with each unit.
Life at The Maple comes with a lifetime access to a 35-acre private gated park where a private and exclusive entrance via an elevated footbridge directly links the development to Sentul Park. Residents of all ages will get to enjoy a host of activities like boating, camping, outdoor movies and concerts or even hold weddings in this rare city green lung, the size of KLCC Park.
To provide a seamless continuation of the park into each condominium dwelling, larger-than-usual ceiling to floor windows that frame unrivalled views of the park and city skyline will be incorporated in every room of each residence. Homeowners can also take advantage of the Sky Terrace – exceptionally large balconies that come with every unit, to extend their living space to the outdoors.
Located just 10 minutes from the heart of KL, The Maple is connected with an all-encompassing transportation system with five to choose from – the Sentul KTM Komuter and the Sentul Timur STAR LRT, with direct links to KL Sentral and KLIA via ERL; The Sentul Link, which will create a new gateway to Jalan Sentul and Jalan Ipoh by connecting Jalan Mahameru at the intersection of Jalan Kuching; the new enhanced accessibility link that is set to ease traffic at the Jalan Segambut-Jalan Duta roundabout; and The Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (DUKE) which will be constructed in the north of Sentul providing immediate links to the SPRINT, Federal, North-South and Karak highways, providing direct links to Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuantan and other major cities.
