Be the first to review

MRCB Land Sdn Bhd’s 9 Seputeh project in Jalan Klang Lama won the “Best Mixed-Use Development” title at the recent PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Malaysia), beating some of the country’s top developments, including Four Seasons Place Kuala Lumpur.

Four Seasons Place by Venus Assets Sdn Bhd won the “Best Ultra Luxury Condo/Apartment Development” award.

MRCB Land’s TRIA Residences @ 9 Seputeh took home the “Best High-End Condo/Apartment Development (Klang Valley)” title, beating Residensi Solaris Parq by UEM Sunrise Bhd.

What has made 9 Seputeh stand out from other five-star establishments in Kuala Lumpur?

The RM2.1 billion mixed integrated project is a game-changer in property development. The 7.04ha project is set by the Klang River and located about 1.6km from Mid Valley Megamall. It features four different development zones. The completed zone is the VIVO series, featuring VIVO Residences with four towers which are currently the tallest structures in Jalan Klang Lama, a small-office-home-office (SoHo) block, and VIVO Signature Retail.

The second zone is TRIA Seputeh, comprising three towers, river-fronting villas and some retail. According to MRCB Land chief executive officer Raymond Cheah, 9 Seputeh is about reinvigorating the Jalan Klang Lama area, a mature neighbourhood in Malaysia’s capital.

“It is about redefining contemporary urban experiences and lifestyles with dynamic residences, retail and commercial zones. It is also to rejuvenate... give a new lease of life to old apartments and shop lots surrounding the vibrant mixed-use development."

“It is giving the 9 Seputeh residents lifestyle-led facilities that bring a sense of luxury, relaxation, relaxation and entertainment designed to resonate with their busy lives,” he told NST Property. Cheah said these were all made possible by having the right architecture, interior design and landscaping stalwarts like RSP Architect, Designtone, and Praxcis Design, respectively.

9 Seputeh has the winning criteria

9 Seputeh is just 1.6km away from Mid Valley Megamall. As for PropertyGuru, the winning criteria was that the judges recognised the principle behind the 9 Seputeh project — to create contemporary lifestyle experiences for residents.

MRCB Land, the property development arm of Malaysia Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB) and pioneer in transit-oriented development in Malaysia, has time and time again incorporated the best amenities for its projects to drive continuous and sustainable growth.

The company has also dedicated its resources for various philanthropic, charitable and corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives to give back to local communities. For 9 Seputeh, MRCB had built an elevated link bridge connecting Jalan Klang Lama to the New Pantai Expressway.

Elevated link bridge accessibility

Opened to the public in November last year, the 1.7km project comprises a 660-metre dual-carriageway link bridge and 1,040 metres of the upgraded road of 12 metres wide. Cheah said the link bridge, which passes through the 9 Seputeh project, eases the traffic flow on Jalan Klang Lama and the surrounding Seputeh area.

It also enhances connectivity to the primary road network for the communities of Pantai Dalam, Kampung Kerinchi, Taman Bukit Angkasa, PPR Sri Pantai, PPR Kampung Limau and Perumahan Pantai Permai.

In addition, the link bridge also acts as an alternative route for those heading from Jalan Klang Lama to Bangsar, Petaling Jaya, Subang and Klang. “Gone are the days when you have to fight traffic to get to work or home. Residents, business owners and visitors will be able to get in an out of 9 Seputeh with ease.”
