The Midfields 2 condominium project is the successor to the highly successful Midfields condo. For instance, the former’s preview in April 2014 attracted about 5,000 registrants. Then in May, it achieved RM400 million sales, an outstanding feat considering it was just previewed in the prior month.

The leasehold condominium offers 792 units spread across three 21-storey blocks sited on 9.26 acres of leasehold land with residential title. Buyers can choose from 3 layouts. Type A5 and Type B4, have respective built-up areas of 1,152 sq ft and 1,044 sq ft, while Type C1 measures 1,111 sq ft. All configurations come with at least 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms, and each buyer is entitled to a minimum of one parking lot. The units were launched at prices starting from RM499,000.

Midfields 2 was completed in June 2018, so new buyers now can immediately move-in.

The leasehold condominium in Sungai Besi is touted as the successor to Midfields. But it aims to surpass its predecessor with its wide array of facilities, as well as better design and layouts.

For instance, there’s a wading pool and swimming pool for those who love soaking in the water sports. There’s a playground for children and kids, in addition to futsal and badminton courts, where future star athletes can train and hone their skills. Apart from a BBQ area and multi-level car park, there is also a park and rooftop garden that is home to a variety of flora.

You also don’t have to worry about the safety of your loved ones and the security of your valuables, as this leasehold condominium features 24–hour security surveillance with tiered access system. But due to the plethora of facilities, be prepared to pay a higher monthly maintenance fee.

One of the key reasons why the Midfields 2 condo saw robust demand is because of its location in Sungai Besi within the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur. In fact, the heart of the capital is just less 10 kilometres away. In addition, the residents can easily travel to the LRT and KTM stations of Salak Selatan in about six minutes. Another reason for its popularity is the affordable price in terms of per square foot (psf) and overall unit price.
