Slick Entrance Statement to the Serviced Residences
While EkoCheras may feature a grand shopping mall, a Grade A office tower and an Eco-friendly hotel tower in its integrated development, the main focal point of the project will be its exquisite serviced apartments. There will be a total of 3 residential blocks in the compound comprising of Tower E, F and J. Tower E will be an exclusive stand-alone tower while Tower F & J will be a twin residential tower with over 180m in height. Each of them will be served with a wide array of classy amenities and facilities such as a roof top garden, sky lounge, recreational sky deck, infinity sky pool, floating Jacuzzi, children’s playground, reading room and many more.

In terms of appearance, EkoCheras possesses a very elegant design that would be the envy of many. It also comes with a spectacular view of the surrounding neighbourhood through its duo residential towers, which are the tallest twin towers in Cheras. So, those who are looking for a classy and contemporary place to stay will certainly find EkoCheras to be a very suitable purchase.
Equally as impressive as its exteriors are its interior designs. They represent a chic statement of how a service apartment should be presented, in terms of space and functionality. Inside, the bedrooms will consist of tough and durable laminated HDF floorings while the other part of the suite will use high quality tiles. The doors and windows will be of good quality too with the provision of timber flush doors and aluminium framed windows and sliding glass doors. In addition, signature sanitary wares & fitting will be included as part of the package, along with complimentary fittings such as a kitchen hood & hob and air-conditioners.
For its first residential block, Tower E will comprise of 5 major layouts, namely Type A1 (A2), Type B1 (B2), Type C1 (C2), C3 (C4), D1 (D2), Type E1 and Type E2.
The first in line would be its Type A1 (A2) units, which has a total built up area of 596 sq. ft and a single bedroom & bathroom. Similarly, Type B1 (B2) will only include a single bedroom & bathroom, but there will be an additional study area and yard in the layout, along with a larger built up area of 821 sq. ft.
Meanwhile, Type C1 (C2) & C3 (C4) will share an identical layout, where the former will come with a total built up area of 1,160 sq. ft.,2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a balcony, a foyer and a yard, while the latter will include an additional balcony and 80 sq. ft. in size.

Additionally, there’s also the Type E1 & E2 design, which are slightly larger than the Type A1 (A2) and B1 (B2) units, but will possess almost the same features as them.
Tower H & J
Apart from its studio and single residential units in Tower E, EkoCheras also introduces several duplex units in its twin H & J towers. They include the Type A1 (A2), Type A3 (A4), Type B1 (B2), Type B3 (B4) and Type C1 (C2) units. The Type A units will be its smallest units and would only comprise of a single bedroom, bathroom and a powder room. The larger duplexes such as the Type Bs and Cs, on the other hand, will have an additional 1-2 bedrooms and bathrooms and other value added features such as a balcony and a study room.
Directions to EkoCheras
When it comes to modern and attractive townships, most people would only think of Damansara, Mont Kiara or Petaling Jaya. Recently though, Cheras has begun to attract the people’s attention due to its rapid pace of development. New residential projects and commercial centres are being launched left and right in the suburb, apart from shopping malls and restaurants as well. While some have argued that the meteoric rise of Cheras was due to the addition of MRTs and better connectivity from the city centre, the truth is, it has always been a very lively and enjoyable place to stay. And within this vibrant neighbourhood lies Taman Mutiara, a relatively low dense housing development that is home to EkoCheras and various other landed properties.
The warm & cozy looking terrace houses in Taman Mutiara
One of the main beauties of Taman Mutiara is its mature community and strategic location. This vibrant yet peaceful enclave boasts an excellent connectivity to major expressways such as East-West link highway, Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), Cheras- Kajang Highway and other roads such as Jalan Cheras and Jalan Ampang. Besides, it is also sandwiched between various amenities and facilities such as shopping malls, hypermarkets, schools, eateries, medical centres, convenient stores and a night market, which provide great conveniences for its residents. With an upcoming MRT station being built in the vicinity as well, travelling to and from Taman Mutiara is definitely going to be much easier and faster in the future.

In terms of shopping and entertainment, you will be spoilt for choice with Cheras Leisure Mall, Tesco Extra Cheras, Ikon Connaught and Cheras Sentral within close proximity. The recent addition of IKEA Cheras has opened up a whole new level of shopping experience as well due to its wide choice of furniture and home appliances. Coupled with the famous Taman Connaught night market and eateries, there’s ample of leisure and pleasure activities for you to look forward here.

Traffic would be a major concern though, as Jalan Cheras is notoriously known for its massive traffic jams. Along with the ongoing MRT construction works in Taman Mutiara, you can expect major delays during the day. However, things should significantly improve when the MRT station begins its operations in 2017.
A busy traffic in Jalan Cheras
All and all, EkoCheras is situated in an extremely strategic location that is home to many highly desirable public amenities and facilities. Apart from the bad traffic condition, you will find EkoCheras and Taman Mutiara a very convenient and exciting place to live in.

When it comes to price, EkoCheras bears the most expensive serviced apartments among the three luxurious residential projects in Cheras. However, its premium could be well justified as it is located in a self-sustaining commercial development that includes eco friendly features and contemporary designs. Besides, it also presents the best location among the trios, with the shortest distance to the city centre and a direct access to a MRT station. With the vibrant Taman Connaught and upcoming Bandar Tun Razak as its closest neighbour as well, there might just be a good reason for you to pay a premium price for it.
