Sunrise Bhd’s MK10 gives priority to green space

KUALA LUMPUR: Sunrise Bhd’s completed development 10 Mont’Kiara (MK10) has started the hand over process since early December 2009. A media tour of the premises on Dec 11 showcased very green spaces with a myriad of plants. Raymond Cheah, Sunrise assistant manager of development and project director of MK10, shared that about RM2.5 million has been spent on landscaping alone and more than one million plants are on site. Some 60% of the land has been allocated to landscaping, open spaces and recreational facilities.

Aspects of luxury hotels are seen in the design of the common spaces, which include a concierge area where visitors are deposited before being directed to one of the two towers while the high lobby ceilings are affixed with funky chandeliers.

MK10’s modern design is married with touches of nostalgia that generates a sense of warmth and homeliness. Modern-designed swings are placed strategically at the rim of an open field, the size of a 25m pool. Here, the young has ample space to play, run freely or kick a ball without any fear of strangers, while grandparents look on.

Bordering this field is the conservatory gardens where creeper vines and other flora are slowly filling up the allocated spaces.

This project, which occupies 7.346 freehold acres, offers 332 units in two 43-storey towers and 1,100 parking bays. MK10 has a gross development value of RM700 million. The units were put on the market in 2006 when they fetched prices of between RM1.65 million and RM2.2 million or an average of RM550 psf. Cheah said they are now valued at between RM2.7 million and RM2.8 million on the secondary market.

Each unit is serviced by lifts that take residents directly to their private lift lobbies. Buyers had the option of customising the layout of their respective units, based on certain specifications listed.

A visit to one of the units on the 35th floor was greeted by high ceilings, zone-control air conditioning and breathtaking views of the KLCC Twin Towers in the distance and the mountain ranges beyond.

The workmanship of MK10 was graded under CONQUAS, a yardstick for measuring quality of building projects by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) of Singapore. The project received a high-score of 81.6 points.
