Developed by Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), the master developer of KL Sentral transit-oriented development, Plaza Sentral is a MSC Cybercentre-status office and is home to IT businesses and fintech start-ups.
Located in the heart of KL Sentral transit hub, Plaza Sentral is popular among corporations and business owners for its easy accessibility via public transportation and for its proximity to various amenities, said Carmen Lee from Reapfield Properties (HQ) Sdn Bhd, who concluded the deal.
Lee said the unit owner wanted to cash out, so it was sold below market price.
There were other units within the same building selling at around RM950 psf while this unit was sold at about RM736 psf, definitely a great deal for the buyer, she said, adding that such a unit could fetch a rental yield of around 9%.
“Besides the price, the buyer also liked that the unit came with basic fittings and office furniture as well as a beautiful unblocked city view. This is definitely a nice place for an office,” Lee added.
The 2,715 sq ft unit was shared by the previous owner, who has since vacated the space, with a tenant taking up around 1,498 sq ft for a monthly rent of RM7,050. The tenancy agreement will end April 30, 2020, but both tenant and new owner could renegotiate the terms if the tenant wishes to stay on.
