Project Details

This is a life changing project for Jalan Raja Abdullah. Safuan Suites will provide the height and grand stature along the road of Jalan Raja Abdullah. At the current moment, the road is surrounded by landed housing properties that are mostly old as well as commercial and banking buildings that are low rise. Jalan Raja Abdullah without a doubt is the lesser developed area of the city centre as it is heavily populated by landed and older properties.

Stunning view as Menara Kuala Lumpur is as clear as day here

The views are just spectacular here. The folks here are lucky as they would be able to see Menara Kuala Lumpur clearly. And of course, the view of the city centre would definitely be untampered due to Safuan Suites’ neighbours that are mostly consist of low rise buildings and landed homes.

The potential is immense and endless for Safuan Suites. This is an area that is less visible, from a skyscraper point of view. Safuan Suites’ presence will be able to entice home seekers or investors to explore an unfamiliar territory for high-end residential condos or serviced apartments. With its contemporary design and appeal, it can be a success.

Location

Accessible to major roads in Kuala Lumpur

Nothing beats the location of Safuan Suites. Located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, Jalan Raja Abdullah combines both the new and old within its vicinity. It is a simply fascinating area where the balance of modernisation and tradition is blissfully still intact.

A ‘kampung’ in the city

Jalan Raja Abdullah is located next to Kampung Baru. It is also located in between Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz and Jalan Sultan Ismail. The area is known to witness rapid development surrounding it. Nonetheless, within its own environment, it stays true to the retro feel of Kuala Lumpur. It has been a residential area for the Malay community for decades. The houses here are still a reflection to the good old days. Most of them are still made of wood and hardly seen any touch ups on its exterior. While some have gone through renovation and refurbishment just to keep pace with time. The mixed-emotions of the era are extremely visible to the eyes of visitors as they would definitely gush on the existence of a ‘kampung’ right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur’s metropolitan city.

And yes, accessibility is everything. Jalan Raja Abdullah is accessible to most major roads in Kuala Lumpur. It is well connected to the routes of Jalan Uda, Jalan Raja Alang, Jalan Munshi Abdullah and Jalan Daud. It also cuts through Jalan Raja Muda Aziz that would bring residents here to Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Jalan TAR), Jalan Pahang and right onto Jalan Tun Razak that would eventually leads to Jalan Ampang.
