• Check out our selections of condo and serviced apartment projects completed within the last 10 years, offering proximity to the city’s heart while providing the space and amenities necessary for young families to thrive.

A home located within or in proximity to the Kuala Lumpur city centre (KLCC) undoubtedly comes with a premium. After all, this is where the pulse of the whole nation is. Complete with all the attachments to modern urban living, the world-class capital city is vibrant and full of life – both economically and socially. 

Naturally, its appeal is reflected in its property values, with some of the highest priced (psf) homes located here. Just as an example, a recently posted 3,700-sq ft condo unit on The Binjai on the Park, KLCC carries a tag of RM9,600,000, which translates to RM2,595 psf! 

So, does this mean most of us can forget about living even anywhere near the KLCC? 

Well, the good news is – no – reachable prices do exist for homes near the KLCC. And we are not talking about just one-bedroom or no-bedroom (studio units with an all-in-one concept) small bachelor pads, or aged and dingy apartments. Through EdgeProp listings, we have found several high-rises that include three-bedroom family-friendly units priced RM500,000 and below. 

Here are our selections of eight condo and serviced apartment projects completed within the last 10 years, offering proximity to the city’s heart while providing the space and amenities necessary for young families to thrive.
