Bina Puri is a major construction company in Malaysia, whose past projects involve the building of major highways and interchanges, airports, government complexes and land reclamation. They also have an international presence in Brunei, Thailand and Indonesia, building residential developments and resorts. Aside from Opus @ KL, some of Bina Puri’s other local projects is Riviera Sentral a commercial development in Kuala Lumpur, 8 Avenue Commercial Mall & Sovo in Kota Kinabalu and Laman Vila in Mont Kiara North.

 

The name ‘Opus’ is an indication of “the work of art in progress”. In the early 18th century ’Opus’ literally meant ‘work’ in Latin, and was later used in reference to a work of art; especially one of a large scale. With its ambitious approach, a strong eye towards quality and designs meant for the modern and savvy buyer, Opus @ KL will not have any trouble living up to Bina Puri’s standards.

Project Details

Bina Puri’s latest project will span 1.38 acres of freehold land on the new extended boundaries of Kuala Lumpur. This project has gained international interest, especially with Opus @ KL’s location directly opposite KL118 the future tallest building in Malaysia which will surpass the 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers. Approximately 12% of the buyers of Opus @ KL consist of Hong Kong and Taiwanese buyers amongst other countries. Opus @ KL is already under construction, and is expected to be completed in the year 2017 with a Gross Development Value (GDV) of RM334 million.

In an unprecedented move that gained a large amount of international coverage, the developers of Opus @ KL signed a partnership agreement with the Calvin Klein Furniture CEO Michael Foster, and the Gorenje Group Regional Sales Manager Janko Le Ulaga in charge of South Asia. This move indicates the luxury that future residents of Opus @ KL will enjoy, and signifies the expansion of the niche Calvin Klein furniture brand name into Malaysia which Opus @ KL will be the first ever development in Malaysia to enjoy this luxury brand.

 

Buyers of Opus @ KL will have a choice of purchasing either a bare unit, or a fully furnished unit. The bare units are as to be expected, significantly more affordable; but were fully sold out before even the official launch, leaving only the signature fully furnished units. All the furniture in the fully furnished units from the sofa to the coffee table will be of Calvin Klein brand, giving the homes an elegant and sophisticated look and feel.

The kitchen is spacious and is a complement to the Calvin Klein brand name with its own mark of Gorenje excellence. The built-in kitchen cabinets are stylish and distinctive with its glossy finish, and practical with the built-in oven on the lower portion of the cabinets. Also tucked into a neat little corner of the kitchen is a Calvin Klein fridge.

To not diminish any of Opus @ KL’s opulence, the bathrooms are also equipped with only the best in bathroom accessories and sanitary ware. Everything in the 5 star hotel quality bathroom is either of the Roca or Hans Grohe brand.

The Calvin Klein furnishings showcased at the Opus @ KL sales gallery are of a darker and more sombre shade which presents a very elegant facade. For buyers who however favour lighter tones, they will in future have the option of selecting a lighter series of Calvin Klein furnishings before the completion of Opus @ KL.

Consisting of two elegant towers, Opus @ KL which is the epitome of luxury living in the city is of extremely low density with only 357 homes. In spite of its so very low density, each of the two blocks will have 4 lifts to prevent peak hour lift congestion. And although located on commercial title land, Opus @ KL is under the Housing Development Act (HDA) laws. The units are decently sized between 704 sf and 1,153 sf, where buyers can select studio units or 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom units. Buyers will also have a choice of 9 different layouts. Every unit will however come with only one parking lot regardless of its size.

The views that will be enjoyed by residents come the completion of Opus @ KL will be that of KL118, the KL Tower or the Kuala Lumpur cityscape. The most prominent views will however be of the future Kuala Lumpur landmark of KL118, as 90% of the units at Opus @ KL will be facing KL118.

 

The facilities at Opus @ KL will be as luxurious as the entire development. Spread out over the 8th, 16th and 32nd floors will be a myriad of lifestyle indulging facilities. On the 8th floor itself there will be two swimming pools with one on either end of the building, a Tropical Oasis and an Urban Oasis. Scattered all along this floor are landscaped lawns interspersed with garden seats.

 

For a session of self-indulgence overlooking the landscapes of Kuala Lumpur is the Hydro Therapy Jacuzzi on the 16th floor with a dipping pool and sauna. The glass enclosed gymnasium is also on this floor for panoramic views of the city while working out. The rooftop on the 32nd floor is where elegant parties can be held with the fully fitted kitchen for use of residents, or where a casual yet refined barbecue party can be enjoyed amidst water features complemented by garden seats and lounge seats. The Theatrette is also situated on this floor.

As a production of luxury targeted to the niche and select group of younger buyers who are looking for a more elite type of lifestyle, Opus @ KL with its richer and finer products and more realistic prices is a dream come true. Not only will buyers have a splendid home, they will also have a potentially great investment in their hands.

Location

Secreted in a little out-of-the-way corner close to the heart of the city in a little known lane was an empty plot of land, fenced off in the past with a small little haphazard shop serving chicken rice during lunch to cater to the offices in the area. Serving one of the best home made yong tau foo in the heart of Kuala Lumpur known only to locals is also a roadside stall literally at the side of the Wisma Ho Wah Genting building. It is up this short road where much excitement is now taking place with the creation of Opus @ KL.

The entrance road to this very prestigious upcoming project is at the moment considered to be quite hidden, between the Bangunan Cheong Wing Chan building and Menara Ho Wah Genting. The easiest way to search for the sales gallery which is located on the site is by searching for Bangunan Cheong Wing Chan, where the sales gallery is located in. As one of the final turn-offs before hitting the road heading towards Kuala Lumpur if heading straight, to Petaling Street via a u-turn or to Federal Highway via a left turn, missing this turn-off can be quite a major pain depending on how familiar you are with this area. Opus @ KL is however going to be a very un-missable development soon with its iconic presence carved into the city’s skyline.

 Opus @ KL is literally located in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur city, with easy access from all the major suburbs of Klang Valley. It is situated on a rather nondescript street that has a variety of shops and services ranging from a hotel  to a KK Mart with the majority of the units on the block being office lots.

The satellite city of Petaling Jaya is a convenient 15 minutes away in clear traffic, the busy town of Cheras with its increasing number of hotspots is approximately 10 minutes away down the road, and the city’s hotspots such as Suria KLCC is approximately a short 10-minute drive away while the famed Petaling Street is almost literally opposite of Opus @ KL and is within a short walk from Opus @ KL. In fact the only letdown of Opus @ KL’s location is that it is located on the opposite side of the road leading to Kuala Lumpur, which will force future residents to make a u-turn in order to get on the route leading into the city.

 

One of Opus @ KL’s biggest selling points when it comes to its location is the Maharaja Lela Monorail station that will be within a short walk of Opus @ KL. While Opus @ KL’s proximity to a train station in the heart of the city is an expected given with its hefty price tags, what many do not know is that the Maharaja Lela Monorail station is one of the very few monorail stations in the city that has escalators, making it a good choice of station for those with mobility issues.

The convenience of access to the Maharaja Lela Monorail station makes traveling to the city in the future hassle-free for residents Opus @ KL, as the city is well known for its traffic congestion at almost all times of the day, and its serious lack of parking space. With the monorail station within a 3-5 minute walk away, getting to the Berjaya Times Square or Bukit Bintang area or will take a mere 10 minutes. For a direct transfer between train lines, KL Sentral is a few short stops away where public busses and a plentiful of cabs are also available. The Express Rail Link (ERL) to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is also located at KL Sentral, providing an added convenience to residents of Opus @ KL who are frequent travellers.

 

An added excitement to the availability of public transport near Opus @ KL is the upcoming Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) train which will connect Malaysia to Singapore at the speed of a bullet train. There will be a HSR station just up the road of Opus @ KL, within a healthy walking distance.

With the lack of land in the immediate city limits, the newer developments on the borders of the Golden Triangle pushes the limits of the city’s boundaries. The upcoming highly anticipated KL118 that will be located in the immediate vicinity of Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara will also be located directly opposite Opus @ KL. With KL118 to be the tallest building in Malaysia upon its completion in 2019, it is said that the area around it will be the future KLCC; and is also one of Opus @ KL’s biggest selling points.

Analysis

Brand new developments within the heart of Kuala Lumpur have reached an approximate minimum price tag of RM2,000 psf, with Pavilion Residences, one of the most prestigious projects in the city as of 2015, priced at approximately RM3,000 psf.

Summary

Opus @ KL is indeed one of the very much awaited developments that can be afforded by those of the upper income brackets without being ridiculously rich. While it may not have as quite an insane reception as some of the Rumawip projects such as Casa Green @ Bukit Jalil which was sold out without any form of advertising before the general public even got a whiff of it, it is only to be expected with the slow market sentiments. But even with the soft market, Opus @ KL is doing unexpectedly well with many investors and buyers seeing its potential as both a short term and long term investment. Add on its one-of-a-kind luxuriously sophisticated furnishings, and Opus @ KL is the buy of the century.
