Project Details

KL Traders Square a Review

Family living with ample space in the heart of the city has always been a rarely fulfilled dream for the commoner, especially one spacious enough to house a moderately sized family. Adding on the unstable economical climate and inflated property market, it seems even more unlikely in the 20th century to live anywhere close to the city worth mentioning.

 

The widely celebrated KL Traders Square has however answered the dreams and desires of many buyers who wish to live, work and play within the city affordably, with its location minutes from the borders of the Golden Triangle. There are so many advantages to living at KL Traders Square’s, and all its residents will have to put up with is a slightly higher than the norm density – imagine OUG Parklane off Old Klang Road. Worry not, KL Traders Square is only half the density.

Sitting on prime freehold land and set to change the landscapes of the neighbourhood, KL Traders Square which spans a massive 17 acres of land will be a fully integrated development to provide the ultimate convenience of lifestyle to its buyers and residents. Situated at the base of the building will be a visually artistic shopping centre that will stand at three storeys tall, housing a total of 97 retail lots.

Although all the retail lots are mostly sold out, there was no mention of any confirmed tenants as of the end of 2015. It was however hinted that the retail lots are to be used mainly by F&B businesses and various service providers such as banks. In lieu of the F&B businesses, residents will be able to enjoy a quick breakfast before heading out to work, or enjoy a leisurely dinner on a lazy no-cooking night. These retail lots are sized between 5,009 sf and 10,891 sf and had a minimum launch price of RM3.3 million.

 

Opened to public, the retail lots that form the base of KL Traders Square is anticipated to attract visitors from within the vicinity. That is however the going-ons of the below only; the residential floors of KL Traders Square is what buyers of KL Traders Square will be really interested in.

 

Due to the excellent design of KL Traders Square, residents of the serviced apartment will hardly be bothered by the noise of the commercial happenings below. Even those located on the lowest residential floor will barely have to suffer any noise thanks to the buffer of five storeys of multi-storey parking lot and one level of facilities located above the shopping mall before the residential floors start from the ninth floor onwards.

 

Situated on Level 8 of KL Traders Square is the pride of the development. The facility floor which is proudly called the Skypark will host over 26 facilities to cater to every age and to suit every need. Beautifully arranged over 6 acres of land, the facility level is vast enough to promise no overcrowding even at peak hours.

Giving the illusion of living in a nature filled wonderland, there will be eight thematic gardens; including scented gardens, lilac gardens and even a tea tree forest. While most new developments do not come with badminton courts due to space restrictions, KL Traders Square comes with not one, but six badminton courts within its multipurpose hall and two tennis courts.

 

Of the other acclaimed facilities at KL Traders Square is its Olympic-length swimming pool, kid’s pool with water slide and aqua play, bubbler pool and floating Jacuzzi. With the high density of residents living at KL Traders Square, the maintenance fees for all these awesome facilities is only RM0.20 psf, of which as part of the buyer incentive package the first year’s maintenance fee is free.

 

Targeted towards first time home buyers and home upgraders with its decent sizes and affordable prices, the homes at KL Traders Square come with three different layouts of 842 sf, 864 sf and 940 sf.

One of the slack parts of buying a home at KL Traders Square is its lack of free furnishings; which is also one of the reasons the homes here are so affordably priced. All the homes will come with the bare minimum of furnishings. The kitchen will be completely empty with non of the usual free cabinets, hood or hob, although the show unit showcases the potential of the kitchen very well.

The bathrooms are luxuriously spacious, but will also be bare of furnishings with just a basic wall shower and basin with not even a water heater.

Location

KL Traders Square is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated developments to be located in the neighbourhood of Gombak. It is situated within minutes of Setapak which is a highly developed and busy area preferred by investors, and is close to the upcoming Bandar Baru Sentul with its myriad of new developments. Situated in as prime a location as an affordable medium cost development could possibly get on the borders of the Golden Triangle, KL Traders Square is only 15 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur city centre.

 

Getting to KL Traders Square from the direction of either Cheras via Jalan Loke Yew or the city centre proves to be a very easy feat with the number of highways accessible to the area. Sitting at the beginning of Jalan Gombak, KL Traders Square has utmost convenient access to the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE). Rather conveniently, this highway also connects to the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and the the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2).

Locals who are familiar with this area will appreciate the location of KL Traders Square even more when they discover how many main trunk roads that KL Traders Square is within proximity to. Aside from being situated on one of the most well connected trunk roads in the area, KL Traders Square is also within a short drive to the trunk roads of Jalan Genting Kelang and Jalan Pahang. By utilising the former, getting to Setapak will take mere minutes and with the latter residents are connected to the up and coming township of Bandar Baru Sentul.

 

While many fret about the traffic congestion that they may have to endure when getting home during peak hours on weekdays, worries are already being alleviated with the construction of the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway 2 (DUKE 2). This extension of the old DUKE highway will have an access road directly on Jalan Gombak almost literally in front of KL Traders Square, and will additionally provide access roads directly to Jalan Tun Razak and the Mahameru Highway (MRR1), and indirectly to the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH) as well.

A major plus point of living at KL Traders Square is its location in a highly established township. Not only is there every conceivable type of convenience in the area, but everything is also within a short drive of home whether it is to a shopping mall, medical centre or education institution. Within a mere 2 kilometres of KL Traders Square is the renowned Chong Hwa secondary school of Klang Valley – literally down the street of KL Traders Square within walking distance.

Or for a more expansive education there is the Sri Utama International School barely 5 minutes away. Although situated at only approximately 10 minutes away from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), buyers do not expect there to be student renters at KL Traders Square as there are many more residential developments within walking distance to UTAR itself.

 

Every home is incomplete without being situated close to a supermarket or shopping mall. At KL Traders Square, residents have the privilege of being located close to both. For an unharried and relaxing weekend in a nice and quiet neighbourhood mall there is the Festival City Mall barely five minutes away from home, which lives up to its name in terms of liveliness and variety of products and services.

 

Otherwise for a quick stop at a supermarket for a pick-me-up, there is the Aeon Alpha Angle shopping mall also within the vicinity. For those who prefer the busier shopping malls of the Kuala Lumpur city centre, Suria KLCC, Pavilion, Berjaya Times Square and Sungei Wang Plaza are all less than 20 minutes away.

 

Being situated this close to the city, residents of KL Traders Square are also privy to some of the best of medical healthcare within a 6 kilometre radius from home. Columbia Asia Medical Centre is 3 kilometres away, and the renowned Tawakal Medical Centre with its prominent specialists is only a 5-minute drive away.

 

For all that KL Traders Square is sitting in the middle of the city, the development itself enjoys a quiet environment. There is a small neighbourhood mosque a few steps down the road from KL Traders Square, and both a Shell and Petronas station almost beside each other.

A considerably fair distance away from KL Traders Square as to not be a bother is a small commercial hub which hosts a varied number of offices, products and services from mini marts to light shops and even a Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN).

Analysis

Price Analysis

 

KL Traders Square was designed by the developer to be an affordable first home for new families. They achieved their objective successfully, with many of the buyers comprising long time residents of the area who are looking for a home upgrade. During a visit to the showroom, it was also revealed that there were many parents who bought a couple or more units at KL Traders Square for their children for fear that prices of property in the future will be too astronomical for their children to afford a home.

 

With a launch price of RM408,000 during its launch, the average price psf for KL Traders Square stood at approximately RM530 psf. With a lack of land in the city, there are no new developments within the vicinity of KL Traders Square where by the area has a distinctive lack of high rises. The closest existing high rise in the area is La Villas Condominium which has an average selling price of RM399 psf, while the landed properties in the vicinity is about RM308 psf. Considering the age of these developments compared to the novelty of an integrated development in the neighbourhood with a plethora of facilities, KL Traders Square is well worth its RM530 psf.
