It was launched in January 2016, and was scheduled to be completed in 2019. However, the nationwide MCO had halted most construction activities, leading to the delay of completion of projects such as Agile Mont’ Kiara (813 units), Arte Mont’ Kiara (1,707 units), and TWY Mont’ Kiara (484 units), to the second half 2020.

Agile Mont’ Kiara, a freehold condominium project located off Jalan Duta Kiara on some 10-acre site that offers 813 units spread over 11 blocks of low, medium and high rise buildings.

Compared to most of the valuable properties in Mont’ Kiara, Agile MK offers a very unique architecture and interior design concept compared to those commonly seen in local developments for the price that its buyers pay.

Agile Mont’Kiara has a residential title, featuring 11 residential towers with units ranging from 1,162 sq ft to 5,037 sq ft. There will be four 44-storey blocks, two 18-storey blocks and five 8-storey blocks. Purchasers were given a variety of options as the partially furnished units come with either 2+1 bedroom, 3 bedroom, 3+1 bedroom or 2 dual-key units. Furnishings include air-conditioning, water heaters, kitchen cabinets, built-in wardrobes, video intercom systems, and centralised water heating.

  • 6 acres of environmental deck
  • 65% acres of landscaping

About 6 acres of the development will be used as an environment deck, with pools, parks and recreational areas. Thus, the development exuberates tranquillity and nature, making Agile an oasis in the heart of Mont’Kiara. Facilities at Agile Mont’Kiara include the sky gym, aqua gym, putting green, cabana, badminton court, and more. 

ZPPHO.125932723.R800X800

According to the developer, Agile Mont’Kiara is considered the lowest density in the vicinity, despite having 11 towers of mix low, medium and high rise towers. The towers are designed with large glass windows which allows plenty of natural sunlight in, and cross ventilation especially for larger units that have double balconies.
