UK apartments to be launched in Kuala Lumpur

KUALA LUMPUR: UK developer English Rose Estate Ltd will be selling its latest premium residential product called Rupert Street to the Malaysian market over this weekend in Kuala Lumpur.

“Rupert Street will appeal to [Malaysian] investors looking for prime, central London Zone 1 locations with the highest specifications and designs,” said Ockert Van Den Berg, the chief executive officer of English Rose Estate.

Rupert Street is in Soho, one of London’s most sought-after locations, and comprises two leasehold buildings offering 11 studio flats, 19 one-bedroom flats and four two-bedroom flats with built-ups of between 118 sq ft and 649 sq ft. Selected apartments offered to the Malaysian public start from £527,100 (RM2.8 million).

All apartments will have fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances. They will be near public amenities such as world-class restaurants, shopping facilities and lifestyle centres.

They are also near Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square’s underground station, as well as the University of Central London, the London School of Economics and King’s College. The apartments offer Malaysians a rare opportunity to invest in London property, especially one in Soho, a central location within the city.

Rupert Street is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.

English Rose Estate was established in 2001 and specialises in urban and brownfield regeneration for residential, commercial and mixed-use development and investment schemes. Its assets are in Mayfair, Marylebone and Fitzrovia.
