Infiniti Residences is on the rise and reaching its completion by 2017

Infiniti Residences is a high density residential condominium, with three towers towering at 30 storeys high located on a 7.37 acres of land. This is a pretty massive property located along the hilly road of Jalan 34/26. The construction by exterior point of view is huge and the towers are progressively reaching its height as well as building structures can be seen clearly.

The development has been launched in phases since 2014 and now Infiniti Residences are highlighting its third and last tower, Infiniti 3 (Tower B). It was launched late last year.

It is a thematic based condominium as the development aims to capture a ‘resort living’ ambience with an affordable price tag. Since it is built on a massive piece of land, Infiniti Residences stretches not just from tower to tower but the facility’s vicinities that include the serenity deck and vitality deck have its own mammoth space.

The vitality deck designed to encourage residents to break a sweat via sporting activities. Facilities include a tennis court, futsal court, a playground and a play pool. Meanwhile, serenity deck aims to bring calmness and tranquil to the residents after a hard day’s of work. It has a few seating nodes, a maze garden, a Jacuzzi, a swimming pool and a sunbathing area.

The conveniences here are great and countless. Given the price that the residents will be paying, facilities are indeed a great plus point for the development. Rest assured that such vast facilities will be able to cope with the number of residents that will living here.

Howdy neighbour. Both residences share the same developer

Villa Wangsamas is located slightly on the lower side of the hill

Being slightly on a hilly area could be a perk to the residents. There’s an edge to this development as most views are not obstructed by visible objects. The closest neighbour, located right opposite of Infiniti Residences is its sister project, Villa Wangsamas. This is another high-rise condominium at 24 storeys high with a similar built. It is also a high density residential development. Fear not as the condominium is located on the lower side of the hill. It would not be much of an obstruction.

A small hiccup of the development is the narrowness of the road entering Infiniti Residences and Villa Wangsamas. The road entering the area is a two-way street with really small widths. Thankfully, there is another route that will be covered in tar soon for the usage of Infiniti Residences’ residents.

The rooms here come in various shapes and sizes

The built of the units here definitely cater to a family. For Infiniti 3, there are two main sizes;
1, 518 sq.ft. with 3+1 bedrooms 1 and 1, 085 sq.ft. 2+1 bedrooms. The units here would come as partially furnished. Furnishing includes built in wardrobe, hob and hood, kitchen cabinets and air conditioners. It is also an option to buy the units without the furnishings or loose furnitures. This would definitely be more on the cheaper side. Both Type B and C come with an extra room. Such rooms would definitely fit the bill of an expanding family. The study room can definitely be converted into a room for a child, guest room or even into a maid’s quarters.

Location

Wangsa Maju is known as a residential area that has been around for decades. It started off as an area catering to lower to mid income family who are able to own low cost apartments and even landed properties.

But how time has changed. Wangsa Maju is now facing rapid development penetrating into the area. With the vast of land available for development, Wangsa Maju is indeed witnessing a rush of concrete blocks stacking up side by side. These developments are not just for the mid to lower income families, as it is now opened to higher earners as well to call it home. Thus, diversity is definitely a strength to the area.

Infiniti Residences is not exempted from having great and strategic location. Steadily on the rise, it is located on the hilly side of Jalan Seri Wangsa 1 right on a 7.37 acre of land

Infiniti Residences can be reached via Jalan Genting Kelang, AKLEH, MRR2, and even DUKE highway. There is even connected route from Jalan Ampang heading towards Jalan Jelatek and Jalan Setiawangsa. Just a reminder that getting there can lead to a bit of a jam especially during peak hours in the morning as well as during the evening. Heavy commuting occurs out from the area heading towards Kuala Lumpur in the morning as people would be rushing to work. A bottleneck jam would be a massive headache especially en route to Jalan Setiawangsa.

Sri Rampai Station is a walk away

The RapidKL LRT here is simply efficient and well connected. There are four main LRT stations and these include Wangsa Maju Station, Sri Rampai Station, Jelatek Station and Taman Melati Station. The closest to Infiniti Residences is Sri Rampai Station. Residents could easily walk there.

RapidKL busses are now getting efficient in comparison to a decade ago. The regularity of these busses has been increased to very half an hour and the number of bus stations have rose as well to cater to the demands of new residential properties. Taxis are everywhere in this part of Greater Kuala Lumpur. Given the fact that there are numerous malls and offices, cabs are often waiting for customers at the taxi stands at every corner of Wangsa Maju.

Given how established the area is, do expect great amenities from newly constructed to the oldies.

Another high-rise condominium, Wangsa 9 is in development as well

Nonetheless, Wangsa Maju is now an area packed with construction. This could be a tiny hiccup for current residents with big construction vehicles coming in and out the area. Other than that, mud are spilling out over on to the roads from the construction site. But this could be a short term hassle.

There are numerous high-rise condominiums that are rising around the area. These include Irama Wangsa, Wangsa 9, Riana Green East, Lexa Residence @ The Quartz, Seasons and Gardens Residences
