Analysis

In January 2020, Knight Frank Malaysia launched its latest report, “Real Estate Highlights 2nd Half of 2019”, and they believe that a series of projects launched in the last six months of 2019 has assisted in the recovery of the high-end residential market in Kuala Lumpur. However, it also points out that the overall outlook for the Kuala Lumpur high-end residential market remains challenging amid the supply and demand imbalance.

Nevertheless, the firm expects to see more new launches and transactions in the prime areas of Kuala Lumpur city such as Bukit Bintang, Ampang Hilir or U-Thant, Mont Kiara, Bangsar, and Damansara Heights or Kenny Hill.

Here’s a glance at residential properties in or close to Kuala Lumpur city centre.
