Tan & Tan's G Residence 80% sold

"At an average of RM650 psf, our development is similar to terraced house prices within Klang Valley.

"We are offering spacious and comfortable units targeted at young professionals, either single or with families, looking for their own living space as well as those who work in the city."

Tan & Tan is a wholly-owned subsidiary of IGB Corp. Units are tagged between RM610,000 and slightly over RM1 million.

G Residence consists of two 23-storey blocks, including 26 retail units within two levels. Block A has 295 units, while Block B has 179 units. Built-up areas for the units range from 1,080 sq ft to 1,545 sq ft, and two car-parking bays are allocated per unit. The developer plans to keep the retail units for recurring income, as well as to control the tenant mix. Teh said the retail units would mostly be F&B outlets and convenient stores, to complement the development.

The leasehold development features facilities including a gymnasium, a swimming pool a wading pool, children's playground and a multi-purpose hall. Units come with built-in kitchen cabinets with hob and hood, an electronic storage water heater and air conditioning in the living room, dining room and all bedrooms.
