Completed in 2011, the freehold high-rise residential project was developed by PJ Development Holdings Bhd (now part of OSK Holdings Bhd).
Swiss-Garden Residences consists of two blocks housing 478 units with built-up sizes ranging from 550 to 2,700 sq ft. Facilities include swimming pool, banquet hall, squash court, gymnasium, sauna and more.
This project is just a 1.2-km walk from Petaling Street and the Bukit Bintang shopping belt as well as less than 1km to Berjaya Times Square KL, said One World Real Estate negotiator Meifen Low who concluded this studio unit deal.
The seller was a foreigner while the buyer is a property investor familiar with the Kuala Lumpur market who saw the potential of the unit in such a location, for capital appreciation and rental income, Low noted.
This well-maintained unit which comes with a car park bay was sold at slightly below market price. On top of that, it was a fully-furnished corner unit that offers privacy and a fantastic city view. “It did not take long for the buyer to make his decision,” added Low.
