  • 13 January 2021

Setia Sky Residences (also known as SSR) is a freehold luxury condominium located in Kampung Baru, in the KL City Centre. The development was launched in 2008, and completed in 2011.

Setia Sky Residences is located opposite the National Library, on the intersection of Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz. It is just 1 km away from KLCC, about a 5-minute drive to the Kuala Lumpur city centre. One can easily access SSR via AKLEH (Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway).

While still boasting a location within the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur, SSR is priced slightly lower as it is slightly further out, which makes it more attractive to some. Properties within the KLCC area are highly-priced because they are highly sought after due to its location, convenience, and prestige. 

Setia Sky Residences (also known as SSR) is a freehold luxury condominium located in Kampung Baru, in the KL City Centre.

This condo development has a gross development value (GDV) of RM900 million. It is designed in a curved orientation, where about 70% of the units face KLCC. The remaining units will have views of the pool, or the Titiwangsa area.

The developer didn’t want a boxed-up building, which is rather conventional for high-rise condominiums. By incorporating a curved design sexy, most of the units can enjoy views of the KLCC. The developer also highlighted that Setia Sky Residences has “better” views of the Petronas Twin Towers due to its location.

Developed by SP Setia, Setia Sky Residences sits on a 5.96-acre land and it is a high-density project with 811 units in four 40-storey towers. With Setia Sky Residences, the developer is selling a lifestyle, with multiple facilities and amenities such as the Sky Deck and the 20,000 sq ft Sky Club.

The development has 3 levels of facilities spanning 120,000 sq ft. The facilities include Sky Deck and Sky Club. Sky Deck @ Level 5 comprises a 50m lap pool, wading pool, barbeque terrace, music room and an aerobic and dance room, among others. Sky Club @ Level 34 features, among the other two sky villas, an infinity pool and a cigar lounge.

The developer clinched the Best Luxury Condo Award (Malaysia) at the South East Asia Property Awards 2014 for this development. Setia Sky Residences also won the Best Luxury Condo for Central Malaysia at the Malaysian chapter of the awards, and the Special Honour Award at the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards 2013.

Analysis

Some have noted that the monorail station closest is about a 17-minute walk away. However, there’s a free in-house shuttle service to give residents a lift to and from the KLCC LRT station. The MRT line (Station #15, Kampung Baru North) is a short walk from Setia Sky Residences, which is a bonus for residents. 

The developer also highlighted that Setia Sky Residences has “better” views of the Petronas Twin Towers due to its location.

Being in the heart of the city, traffic congestion is to be expected. Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz is usually congested because of the traffic light junction at the General Hospital and intersection to Jalan Tun Razak.

Being in a strategic location also means that there will be units that are up for short-term stays. A search shows units available for booking on travel or rental marketplace sites.

Here’s a quick look at properties in the KL City Centre.

Summary

During its launch, the developer offered a 5/95 home loan package which made owning the units more affordable, where buyers had to pay a relatively small sum for the down payment of the units. Under the 5/95 scheme, a buyer makes a 5% down payment with no other cash outflow until completion. The developer bore all legal fees, stamp duty on SPA, loan agreement, and memorandum of transfer. It also serviced the interest during the construction period.

For a 1,300+ sq ft unit at Setia Sky Residences that cost RM800,000 then, a buyer would’ve paid about RM40,000 until completion of project.

A search on PropertyGuru in January 2021 shows that a fully furnished 1,300+ sq ft unit is asking for approximately RM3,300 per month for rent, while the sale price is RM970,000 upwards.

Here are some estimated loan figures for a unit priced at RM900,000.

  • LTV / margin of finance: 80%
  • Down payment (10%): RM180,000
  • Loan amount: RM720,000
  • Loan term: 30 years
  • Interest rate: 3.2%
  • Monthly repayment: RM3,114

Approximate required gross annual income: RM125,000*

These calculations are based on the PropertyGuru Home Loan Calculator, and PropertyGuru’s Home Loan Eligibility and Affordability Calculator.

If you’re interested in calculating Debt Service Ratio (DSR), you may refer to the PropertyGuru Home Loan Pre-Approval tool. It is FREE to use and helps you avoid loan rejections. It has a 99.9% accuracy so you can be sure of home loan approval!

* Assumptions: You have no other monthly debt obligations, and 30% of gross income will be spent on the housing loan. As a rule of thumb, banks usually loan up to 30% of your gross annual income.
