Located in Damansara Heights, DC Residensi is part of the 8.5-acre freehold Damansara City project - a transit-oriented (TOD) development, which was developed by GuocoLand Malaysia Bhd.

According to Kelly Tan from IQI Realty, who concluded the rental deal, Damansara Heights is one of the most sought after high-end addresses. It is close to amenities and easily accessible.

“The owner had purchased the serviced apartment for rental returns as DC Residensi is part of the Damansara City development which has multiple components including retail mall, hotel and offices. The property is also located within walking distance to the Pusat Damansara MRT (mass rapid transit) station,” she said.

The apartment has been rented to an expat from Italy who chose the unit as it was fully-furnished and has a balcony offering an unobstructed panoramic view of the area. Although the deal was concluded in February, the commencement of the tenancy agreement only began in mid-June due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

“The tenant was in Italy after the agreement was signed but could not return to Malaysia when the country’s borders closed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. However, the owner agreed to extend the commencement date of the rental agreement considering the current circumstances,” Tan said. data showed that there was only one transaction at DC Residensi in 2019. The unit sold for RM1.3 million or RM1,388 psf. In 2018, two units were sold for an average RM1.98 million or RM1,376 psf.

As at July 2, 2020, there were 36 units listed for sale on with the average asking price at RM1,527 psf. There were also 16 rental listings asking for a monthly rental of RM7,000 or RM4.43 psf.
