Nestled in the arms of lush natural greenery in Wangsa Maju sits Riana Green East.KL, more commonly known as Riana Green East. This hilltop development is the joint effort of IJM Land Bhd and MSL Properties Sdn Bhd, both renowned developers with extensive portfolios of developments in Malaysia and internationally.

Riana Green East drew inspiration from the success of IJM Land’s Riana Green in Tropicana, Petaling Jaya, which was developed in the 1990s. This project placed similar emphasis on landscaping as its core feature.

Additionally, its signature landscaping is complemented by green conservation efforts throughout the development.

Riana Green East is the first of two side-by-side developments by Elegan Pesona on the 13.96-acre plot of land. The subsequent development, Seri Riana Residency, is a similarly green-themed residential facility that is managed independently.

The second phase is Seri Riana, and it consists of 7 residential blocks. It features two 38-storey towers with 360 apartments, three 7-storey blocks with 30 apartments, a 28-storey tower with 122 apartments and a 34-storey tower with 162 apartments.

There is also a 5-storey car park with around 1,428 bays. At launch, units were sold from RM400,000. Each phase in Riana Green East has its own facilities.

Inspired by the success and concept of the original Riana Green in Tropicana, Riana Green East has similarly devoted a significant area of development to green landscaping.

At the creative and meticulous hands of reputed landscape architect Seksan Design, only one-fifth of the area is concentrated for built-ups.

The uphill drive to the entrance of the site is lined with shady trees while the development is surrounded by vegetation all around.

Several areas on the grounds are dedicated as green zones or conservatories to preserve the natural terrain of the hill and also to minimise the felling of the natural foliage. The developer has also taken preventive measures to curb landslides, which is rather common in that area.

 It comprises a 36 storey tower, two low rise blocks of 10 and 11 storeys each and a central plaza which also houses a conservatory.

The eye-catching elevated black metal walkway structure surrounding the swimming pool and deck is the centre piece of Riana Green East. Complemented by tall trees, hanging creepers and exposed mortar bricks, the facilities deck is ultra-contemporary and inviting.

Green lawns, hedged walkways, open and airy shared spaces and wooden decks are just some of the offerings to relax and unwind. Other facilities include tennis and squash courts, gymnasium, sauna, playground, barbeque area, multi-purpose hall, and games room.

The tower block is built like a cross with four structural appendages. This unique design offers most of the units two separate and stunning views of either the Melawati Hills, Genting Highlands, KLCC or the lush untapped forests encircling the area.

Internally, units feature high ceilings and a 8-foot main door as well as lots of windows and panels to allow the flow of ambient light and ventilation. To immerse into the natural green surroundings, some designs feature bathtubs in a bay window and open-air showers.

Location

Wangsa Maju has transformed from a student-town into a thriving township. This is attributed to the recent addition of mid-upper and upper-end developments in the past decade. Riana Green East sits in the heart of Wangsa Maju, and hence, is close to many public amenities, retail outlets, and eateries.

The 30km Setiawangsa Pantai Expressway (previously known as the third phase of DUKE 3) will connect Kuala Lumpur’s north part to the south part, and will pass by Wangsa Maju, Setiawangsa, Ampang, and the Tun Razak Exchange, Bandar Malaysia, and the Kerinchi area.

For public transportation, the Sri Rampai LRT station on the Kelana Jaya line is less than 1km from Riana Green East. The line includes stops such as Ampang Park, KLCC, Masjid Jamek, and KL Sentral.

Analysis

Riana Green East is located in a prime and peaceful area just out of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). The development is surrounded by lush natural greenery on the outside, while internally it has dedicated a fairly large portion of the land to landscaping and conservation of its natural green environment.

Inspired by the success and concept of the original Riana Green in Tropicana, Riana Green East has similarly devoted a significant area of the development to green landscaping.

With good amenities and a much lower price tag as compared to units in the city centre, Riana Green East attracted young and growing families, and working professionals.

Riana Green East was one of the earlier fancy developments in the Wangsa Maju area. In recent years, many similar developments have mushroomed in the vicinity in tandem with Wangsa Maju evolving into a more upmarket area from a student town.
